Bought one of these recently for a greater price and is much better than I expected.

Useful if you buy an Android TV box or NUC and want a cheap and small mouse/keyboard to supplement or replace.

Also works well with the smart apps on my LG TV.

States up to 15 metres usage distance and don't know if that is the case but it certainly works well at 15 feet.

Has an IR learning function too, although not used that yet.

Full keyboard and TV remote
Motion sensor allows mouse to be controlled by waving the remote
Frequency range: 2.4~2.4835GHz
Upgradeable function for motion gaming
2.4G transmission up to 15m
Effective battery saver, turn into sleep mode for 20 seconds, inaction <6uA
Plug-and-play function, compatible with USB1.1 and USB2.0 <6uA
Applicable to: Smart TV, IPTV, Networked Set-top Box, Mini PC, Android TV Box, HTPLC, PCTV

is the air mouse on or off by default? I got one of these and being on by default made it almost unusable, had to find a config file to disable it. would have preferred it off by default and be able to switch to it if required
Can I use one of these on my Android TV Box in replacement of the bog standard remote I received? the remote just doesn't seem to hack it when it comes to using the functions, just wondered if this is an ideal replacement to speed things up?
Is this compatible with the fire stick?

​It's on but has a button to switch it off, also when you flip it over to use the keyboard, the air mouse goes off, in my opinion this is one of the best out there.

​Fire doest require a mouse, so no use really.

​Yes.
Anyone know if these are any good with OCMR

The Fire TV stick runs Android and Kodi allows for a pointer, so yes.

​The fire tv stick doesn't have a usb port so this would only work with a fire tv box, but using a mouse on kodi is useless, it's better with a simple up down left right, select and menu button. Airmouse is useful on android to compensate no touch screen.

Thank you. Your a star
Might be worth a dabble... Thanks to OP and eBay alternative poster!
Yes i got one as well. Was using a mobile with app installed. But with a keyboard. Ideal. Topcashback as well, which ever one you chose.
Got mine, via the eBay link and was impressed with the unit. Am using it with Kodi on Rasberry Pi.
I love the Infrared learning mode that lets you copy an existing remote.
I copied the power and Vol+/- from the TV remote and can now use the single remote to power on the TV (via IR) and then control the Rasberry Pi using the wireless 2.4GHz dongle which came with the unit.

I was impress with the gyroscopic mouse it works well. I disabled it as its not needed for my Kodi set up. Disabling the Air mouse had a side effect of making the direction pad keys work! Nice feature is that if you disable the Air mouse the remote remembers this next time you use it! Excellent.

I had some fun setting up the IR learning mode. This was due to me being unable to read the manual! This is my summary of setting IR codes (you only need to do this once)

1. Install and check the wireless remote is working, You will notice the LED on the remote flashes slowly while the remote is idle (the LED flashes but will turn off as the unit goes into idle mode after 20s) Ok so you know the 2.4Ghz part of the remote is working and you know how to tell its in wireless mode.
2. Press the TV button (short press) the LED will STOP flashing it will turn off.
3. Within 20s Press and hold the TV button (Long Press) about 5 seconds. The unit will enter learning mode.
4. In learning mode you have to work quickly as it times out after 20-30 seconds and you will no longer be in learning mode!
5. Press the button on the donor remote that you want the unit to learn. So lets say the power key on the TV remote in my case. When you do this the top of the unit needs to be in range of the TV remote. The slow flashing LED will turn to a constant on for a second then turn off.
6. Now you have to press the button on the unit you want to assign to the newly learnt IR code. In this case power. The unit will then go back to learning mode (slow flashing).
7. Align the remotes and press volume up on the donor remote. The slow flashing LED will turn to a constant on for a second then turn off.
8. Now you have to press the button on the unit you want to assign to the newly learnt IR code. In this Volume down. The unit will then go back to learning mode (slow flashing).
Align the remotes and press volume down on the donor remote. The slow flashing LED will turn to a constant on for a second then turn off.
9. Now you have to press the button on the unit you want to assign to the newly learnt IR code. In this Volume down. The unit will then go back to learning mode (slow flashing).
10. Repeat for each button you want to set up, to exit learning mode (slow flashing) press the TV button (short press)

Points to remember with IR Mode
You can learn from many remotes (e.g.. TV, AV Amp etc.)
The unit has 2 operations mode 1) Wireless 2) IR
When the LED flashes when idle the unit is in Wireless mode. You need to move the remote or press a key to wake it up so it leaves sleep mode. To toggle to / from IR mode press the TV button (short press) in IR Mode the LED will be off when the unit is in idle mode.
There are keys like esc on they keyboard if you need. There is no STOP button on the remote, so I've not found a way to stop a live TV stream on Kodi. Let me know if you know how to do this,

I've only used the remote twice and the first time was setup.

Thanks OP great little remote.

** After a few days use one update I used Kodi to watch live TV using a remote USB Freeview receiver connected to an aerial. One button this unit does not appear to have was a STOP button. Just Press X on the keyboard instead. Also to press back you can use the Backspace key on non qwerty side of the keyboard. ***

Just received mine today from Gearbest and I concur with your findings.

So easy to use and in a manner that doesn't really require any readjustment.

It just works well from the moment that you first use it.
