Pretty good, works with most of my devices. Good for when I'm on the go and need to access my PC. Only thing is sometimes there's a delay, which makes trying to double click frustrating at times.

Best Kodi remote I've tried! Setting it up took a little bit, so probably not really recommended for absolute tech dummies. What would make it even better is if it had a pointer, so hopefully this is added in a future update.
