Been a customer since the Ti4 so should have known better than to exclude the air mouse when I bought the Ti8. Oh well, we live and learn, eh?
For another 25 buck investment I can promise you you're life will be easier with the air mouse, folks.
I like the design. On one side operates like a TV remote, the other side a keyboard. The back light lites up the keys on one side then when you flip it lites up the other, and turns off to conserve battery. Wonderful.
There is one draw back. While using the keyboard the lettering doesn't always come out the way you expect, but still works well.
After reviewing the Air Mouse on Amazon's website and reading the issues people where having I decided to order mine from KODI Element. Since I have the Ti4 and Ti8 Movie Boxes, this remote is excellent to have. This is basically an all-in-one remote after the easy programming. A cute show off for family and friends to see
I purchased this remote a short while ago to replace my other remotes and keyboard that won't
work with the Ti8. It's a better remote then the basic one that comes with the Ti8.
Back light & Keyboard
Power Button turns Ti8 off/on
Distance / Tracking is good
Programmable buttons (2)
Remote has many buttons / controls
Not comfortable in the hand.
Keyboard & lettering is to small.
Blue secondary keys are (blue on black) and to small.
Remote feels to flat and wide. Not uniform.
Overall: The remote is vast improvement over the basic stock remote that comes with the Ti8.
The remote needs to be larger and more uniform. (Rounded on the sides, top and bottom.) The
remote is to small to have a keyboard on it. Some of the buttons should be colored, like the power
button, ok, mute and so on. My TV remote has no keyboard and it is 35% larger then the Easystream
Air Mouse / keyboard. I'm an older person and my eyesight isn't great, but I'm not close to blind
either. Still, i'm not saying I wouldn't benefit from a large-sized remote for seniors. The lettering is to
small. Light grey on black is ok, but white would stand out more and be a bit easier to see. The OK and
arrow keys are to close to each other and when using the arrow keys, I often strike (mistakenly) the OK
key. The arrow keys should be out more and away from the OK button.
In my humble opinion, I think the best solution would be a larger rounded Air-Mouse / Remote with big easy to
see colored buttons and a nice "separate" (easy to see and read) keyboard. This is my first TV Box and I really like
it. I'm not trying to beat down the Air-Mouse, it works fine. This is my upfront & honest review.
It works better than the previous version from Easystream. The distance and tracking Stands out. Generics are not as good...
