The latest one I looked at was the SofaBaton U1. It looked promising at $49. But ...

I have one of those sitting in front of me right now. The lack of back-lighting and the largely useless macro capability are perhaps the *least* of the Sofabaton's failings. The numeric keypad buttons are so tiny and so close together it's nearly worthless. Learning mode is erratic and sometimes just plain does not work. I lot of the pre-canned programming leaves a lot of keys having to be manually assigned. Some of the pre-canned programming is just plain wrong. And the IR emitter is so weak I doubt it would pass *one* layer in the MTFC test. It's going back.

*sigh*... I guess I'll go through the eBay ordeals some more :(
