Default I need a remote control

I need a remote control for my media center but i don't know which one to choose. I've neveer had one and do not know which brand is good at it.

I do not need anything fancy, just something to start windows media center (unless i need a better software but WMC is fine for me now), press play, lower volume and etc.

theser threee seem allright :

NCIX.com - Buy Pcusa Vista Remote Control with IR Receiver Silver - HA-IR-01SV In Canada.

NCIX.com - Buy Mediagate Windows Vista MCE Infrared Remote Control for Home Premium & Ultimate Black - GP-IR01BK In Canada.

Newegg.ca - ADESSO ARC-1100 USB Remote Control - Keyboards

But somehow i have the feeling that this one is really cool

Newegg.ca - Anyware GP-IR02BK Vista 2 channel IR Remote Control

Anybody with a remote control can suggest me what to get or give me feedback on these choices?

I'll be using it with windows 7 64 bit.

My System Specs

the newegg links are not resolving for me <?>

I do use the MCE silver remotes tho and they do the job well. the buttons illuminate and has been going strong for almost 5 years now. Simple, well built and durable. They also work with Linux media center flavors (MythTV/Linux MCE) right out of the box.

Okay sorry for the links, they do work for me, though.

The name of the product can be read in the link name, and they are all 20-35$.

Were you talking about a remote like this one?
