If you own a HTPC you might want to take some interest in the NMEDIA HTPC Wireless Keyboard and Remote Combo Set. This set is composed of two quality products with plenty of features for your typical and not so typical HTPC uses. The ergonomic and intelligent design makes for a comfortable use and natural feeling. Operating on the 2.4GHz RF spectrum you have the ability to use this set up to 10 meters from the receiver even if you have an obstacle (insert annoying family member) in the way, unlike conventional TV remotes.

To my surprise the keyboard was shipped to ThinkComputers in the retail packaging. This is sort of a risky choice considering the fact that there is hardly any padding inside of the box. Luckily nothing was DOA.
The front of the packaging displays the keyboard and remote found inside of the box as well as some brief product information. The back of the box goes into much more detail by covering the features of the 2.4GHz Wireless Combo Set and describing what each set of buttons are and their functions on both the keyboard and remote.
Once the box is opened you are greeted to a horribly translated recycling message that states "Saving Earth, Saving Box", "Save Me As Recycle As Stationary Box". This doesn't really make any sense, but I think we get the hint to recycle the box after we're done with it. Lifting up the cover up message we find the Keyboard with trackball and mouse, MCE Remote, six AA batteries, wireless receiver, and the user manual.
