Home Theater Master MX-500

 

The MX-500 may not look very futuristic or cool, but it can control every function on every piece of gear you own.

Large, well-spaced buttons ; 10 keys accept two custom commands each ; Editable labels ; Distinct transport and menu-navigation controls

Bulky, bland design

The MX-500's primary drawback is in the looks department: the control's big, bulky body won't win any beauty contests. But cosmetic considerations pale beside the MX-500's impressive feature list and ease of use. This is a great value and a top-notch...

Perfect universal remote, suitable for anything

 

I definitely recommend it. In just two hours, I had set up my TV, DVD, Hi-Fi, and even a remotely contolled electrical heater, to work with this remote, so substituting 4 remotes with this one was a breeze. I still have to mess a bit with macro...

Nice desing and plenty of functions and customizable options. The learn method is awesome. Thanks to it, I now control my TV, DVD and Hi-fi, and it even learnt the codes from my portable heater's remote, so I have one remote for everything at home

A bit heavy, but not a very big issue, since it also feels sturdy and very well built ; An updatable code list would be plus, since my TV (bought just a month ago) was just partially detected, and the code was not any of the ones listed for its brand

This is the life saver for those with many components. I just added a DVR, which meant another remote to learn and have hanging around the tv room. This one does it all, Cable, TV, VCR, DVD, amplifier, CD player, you name it. Haven't used it for the...

Does it all, lights up at night, easily programmed

A bit large, not the most stylish available

I would recommend this remote to anybody as long as you are willing to take some time to set it up right. Completely customizable and it is pretty easy to figure out once you get into the set up menu. Learns very easily from other remotes so you never...

Good backlight, comfortable to hold, tons of memory

Too powerful when batteries are fresh, no ability to turn the unit off, "up" button wearing out after 2 years

Does it all, easy for all to use

 

Easy to configure, easy to customize, pleanty of programmable buttons that match all my remotes (tivo, cable, satellite, HD,tv,dvd,audio). Easy for the wife to understand. Works in the dark

Somewhat large, not very sleek looking

Better than Harmony? Time will tell

 

Even though I have only had this remote for a little over a week I wanted to say how much I am enjoying it so far. It is very easy to use and program. I had everything loaded into it and it was running my system in very little time. My choice was between

I would have liked to have a couple more macro buttons. But for the most part I have no complaints with this WONDERFUL remote. Go and get one you will love it
