ASUSTOR shipped us the new remote control with our AS-304T that we reviewed earlier today. This is an optional item can be purchased from a number of e-tailers for around $30 in America.

There isn't much in the way of packaging or a manual, but it's fairly straight forward - point and click.

There are 10 buttons total and the remote doesn't light up like your fancy flagship receiver remote.

The remote is egg shaped on the bottom, so it fits in your hand nicely. The buttons are easy to press and after a few minutes, you instinctively remember each button's location.

The ASUSTOR remote uses IR, so you can use it to teach a learning remote control.

No batteries are supplied with the remote, so you need to supply your own AAA batteries, two of them.
