I might look into Bluetooth. I didn't go with wireless because the range is still too limited. 6 feet sounds good, but I've got 6 foot extension cords
That's about how limited Bluetooth is at this point. In reality, I've had a few wireless keyboards, and although I've always been in the same room as the computer, range has yet to be an issue. Short explanation - you can sit in bed and will not have a range problem. On top of that, the standard wireless will be a good bit cheaper than the Bluetooth keyboards/mice.
ATI Remote Wonder ... kicks ass.
I'll have to assume that it does... ATI is a ho-bag when it comes to customer service... I tossed on 8500 AIW in a freshly built, never used, brand spanking new PC and all that has every happened is the software for it crashing... Quite honestly, I've done everything short of reformating the drive and starting over from ground zero, with an nVidia
Just for everyone's benefit, be careful when buying an ATI vid card... Why??
1) ATI does not have a toll free customer service line;
2) ATI is in CANADA
, so be sure that you have an international calling plan (if not, it's ~$0.64/min - opposed to $0.06/min
, which I dealt with for a while, avoiding adding an international plan to our home line before realizing that it would take 3.5 hours+ to deal with my vid card issue -- literally - I checked my billing...
3) ATI customer service is only good for 30 days after you register online only
(they will not register you via phone when you call in for support). After 30 days, they then charge you $1.25/min on top of
your "not quite free" long distance to Canada...
4) Tons of mistakes and lame assistance from tech support team. I could go into this, but that would require my three page long Word file of notes from dealing with them. (yes, I do take notes while addressing the problem...)
Ok -- this post is now way too damn long
and pointless... Given my situation w/ ATI it's frustrating to hear positive ATI comments while I've been dealing with a three-week long problem...
Carry on -
