BEWARE - THE BAD REVIEWS ARE ALL TRUE

 

Every time I see this remote (which I got for like $6 on sale and despite the low cost, actually went to the effort to return - on principal. (not through newegg). It simply does not work (and I have dozens of remotes - some good, some bad, some almost...

Great remote, easy setup

 

I read the reviews of this remote and thought "Oh my gosh, what a piece of junk!" But since it came free with a TV purchase, I figured I had nothing to lose. Imagine my surprise when I had it out of the pack and programmed for my TV and digital cable...

Easy to set up for TV and cable box, lightweight, key finder function is pretty neat

None thus far

Consumer review by:

It works, mostly.

 

For the price, if you just need a remote for an old component in need of one, it works great.

It works on the two devices I've tried it on, an old Sony CRT TV and an older DVD/VCR player. It works perfectly on the TV ; The FIND IT feature is amazing. I've used it several times to locate the remote when it was not immediately visible. I imagine...

The old-school Samsung DVD/VCR player I have utilizes only the seek buttons, not the skip buttons on the remote even when watching DVDs. Press the seek button once to skip, hold down to seek ; The DVD/VCR player will not power on with the remote, it...

Got it free wi TV purchase and it was DOA

 

I read the reviews before receiving this, but since it was a free add-on for a TV that I bought, I thought that it would be ok. I'm not sure if it is even worth RMAing as I don't want to pay to ship it back to get another.

Free

It doesn't work. Nothing lights up when buttons are pressed. One one button seem to light up the LED and it is for the finder. After you hit it once, it doesn't light again until you take batteries out and put back in it. Does not allow code to be entered

Consumer review by:

What a waste of time and money.

 

I've purchased many things from NewEgg over the years and have usually been highly satisfied but this is by far the worst disappointment. I'd give this dud a -1 egg if it was possible.

It didn't destroy the planet

Who would have thought of black buttons on a black background?? Someone who never used a remote in their life probably. The code listed for my device came up as an invalid code when I tried many times to key it in

Consumer review by:

It's a remote, you expect it to "just work" right?

 

It's marked down from $30 to $7 for a reason. Stay away.

It works for about 2 minutes at a time

This remote is seriously glitchy. I was using it for an older Magnavox TV. The remote's manual listed half a dozen different codes that might work for Magnavox, so I tried each one in order. None of them worked ; So I assumed that I must have made a...

Doh, doh, doh?!?

 

works on TV ; Buttons will take at least 500 pushes without breaking - that's how many times I've hit the code button since I got this thing

None of the codes seem to work on the Sat/DVR - makes it kind of useless as a Universal remote. I've tried abou 30 different codes all to no avail. Also, autodevice coded finder didn't work, but I did get to push the buttons about 400 times

THE WORST UNIVERSAL REMOTE I'VE EVER BOUGHT

 

I would have tossed it aside and blew off the five dollars wasted but for the amount of time and frustration involved. The "GE" name brand means NOTHING with this remote. The SIMPLE, Straight forward Instructions makes it just easy enough to "TRY IT...

ABSOLUTELY NONE ; THE LOW, LOW, LOW SALE PRICE THAT THIS PRODUCT IS ONLY A 'CON' IF YOU REALIZE IT MUST BE A TERRIBLE REMOTE IF IT IS CONSTANTLY GOING ON SALE FOR $5 DOLLARS ; OTHERWISE THAT SUPER LOW PRICE IS THE BIGGEST CON BECAUSE THAT TEMPTATION TO...

THIS DOES NOT WORK AT ALL ; EVEN WORSE ... IT MAKE YOU THINK "Wait, I think I got it, it's working, its working, it wor.......... wait what happened? I had it ; It will drive you crazy

Product Specifications

This universal remote control will replace lost or damaged remotes or will allow the user to consolidate six remotes into one. Over 30 million after-market remotes are sold each year. Although lost item locator products have been available for several years none have this capability embedded into a universal remote control. This clearly distinguishes the RM24945 from any other available remote in the marketplace. This is a first remote ever to integrate FIND IT the paging technology that allows the user to find the remote when it is misplaced or to locate other lost items. This patented "2-Way" paging capability is the perfect solution for those who are prone to misplacing their remote keys purse or whatever. A Locator key fob is packaged with the remote. Additional key fob Locators are available in 2-packs or 3-packs as each remote can be matched with up to six Locator units. Similarly individual key fob Locators can also be expanded to "communicate with" six other key fob units. Part of the uniqueness of FIND-IT is each unit is both a Master Unit and a Slave Unit so if you have one you can find any of the others.
