Awesome! I have been looking for one of these for my HTPC/Boxee box. :)

Great deal on a good device.

Here's my review on it:

It needs a backlight something fierce, but at $35 it's a great deal.

I am excited. The DiNovo gets terrible reviews, doesn't have a real mouse... this looks perfect. Would prefer some more "remotey" items on it, like channel up and down and volume up and down.

But I'll still have my remote, just can get ride of the fullsized keyboard and mouse finally!

Does anyone know if this is compatible with PS3?

I have read that it does on other forums, but I dont have one to test. (http://slickdeals.net/forums/showpost.php?p=28862904&postcount=19)

in for one! i was ready to drop $60 on it last week but decided to hold off. so glad i did. this is exactly what i need for my old desktop turned HTPC.

edit: it won't let me check out with PayPal if i use the coupon code. PayPal works fine without the code though. disappointing.

Any idea if this will work with linux?

@jam736: I bought one a couple of weeks ago and can confirm that the plug-and-play works with Linux.

Paypal worked fine for me. Add the item to the cart, apply the coupon, and click continue. On the page where you would put in your credit card info, there is a second chance to apply PayPal, which worked.

It has volume up/down and the worst customer service experience you will ever have in your life. Pray that the one you receive has nothing wrong with it.

@jam736: I dont know, but it does work with the xbox360 which doesn't help you at all!

awesome. thanks. i just bought one. i have a dinovo but i really dont like it (and i paid almost 150 for it!)

Very cool. I got one for my XBOX running XBMC. We'll see how it goes.

vote-for1vote-against

Wait , how does this work with xbox 360?

vote-for1vote-against

Yeah - it seems that way - it worked yesterday, but I didn't pull the trigger, was going to finish the deal today but couponcode is dead.

vote-for0vote-against

RIP - the code doesn't work

vote-for1vote-against

Coupon code USPCA16336 doesn't work anymore, and google gives me nothing... does anyone have a code that's still valid?

vote-for1vote-against

Mine arrived today....works great with the media center.

Ugh... Just finished typing my comment, in what I assume to be a repeat thread, then it was removed by the time I submitted...

Thanks for the link! An acquaintance picked one of these up the last time they were on sale and said they were pleased. I've been curious how it would mesh with my HTPC, and at this price it's worth satisfying that curiosity.

Note: Don't be in a rush to receive it. My estimated ship date is 04/28/10, then UPS ground time after that. The acquaintance I referred to said they received it ~1 month after ordering. In other words, expect Woot! delivery :p

Neither codes work now.
Sad face.

@harley333: code worked yesterday, and I ordered two. Nice. Thank you.

Looks like codes from Lenovo are recurring, not just one time things, but where did you hear/see this? I'll post if they're mailing them out to customers.
