There are actually a number of different remotes referred to as MCE Remote. They basically function the same, but have different buttons available.
The MCE Remote is provided with MCE Editions of Windows. Other manufacturers have also provided their own versions.

To put it short: I simply love this device.

I love this remote!
Its cheap, it looks nice and its working damn fine!
