What a Boon!!!
I use this to reset my DSL modem when it goes south...which is often. Take that Frontier Communications!

I purchased 10 of these modules. Great range of operation. Only draw back is that the frequency will be jammed if 2 or more remotes are pressed at the same time. In other words these modules can operate by pressing only one button of one remote at a time. I tried changing the module's address, but operation is still the same.

I took apart a couple of these for a project and put the pictures up here : http://blog.ericmoon.net/2009/12/remote-control-lighting/

So far, range seems excellent, even with the original batteries.

unit stopped working - changed battery now ok
had these for a few years, they stopped working.
put in new 12V (27A) battery and they are fine.

when wiring make sure red is 12v in, white is 12v out or reference the spec sheet:

hacked it for lag switch
Out of the box, it draws power from the device it switched on and off, this is very poorly designed as the onboard relay can be rewired to draw power seperately from what it switched on and off. I used it to make a lag switch but it becomes much more practical once this mod is made because it can still be used in the original manner if desired.
it does require some time, desoldering, and soldering, but its worth it.
