great remote, half way

 

When I get my new one and it (hopefully) fully works this will be the greatest remote of all time.

Controls everything I own. My tv is an off brand and none of the codes for it worked but the learning feature is awesome. Controls everything I have

Bluetooth radio was broken when I received it so I am not able to use this to control my PS3. Called Blu-link and another one is on the way

One Great! Remote

 

I love this remote and would recommend to any one looking to have a all in one remote .it's well made and Works!

One Great remote .we'll do all, from your PS3 to TV, DVD, sat/cab, amp. Even, old VCR. And if theirs no key to something that you use you can aim the remotes together and set a key and your set but for the most part all keys that wear on the old remote...

About the only thing I could say is the number key pad is a bit small and if you got large fingers you got take a little time to hit the right keys .one thing that may be nice if the company made a type key pad with all the PS3 games coming out and all...

One Remote to Rule Them All

 

Let the Logitech fanboys begin their assault!

I have tried dozens of remotes, all to no avail, then I found this one. It works! And I mean really works! Not, some of the time, not maybe, not "shoot, my harmony's in the wrong mode again", u press a real button and it works

ergonomics, no all off button... tho not really a con because that feature never works right anyways

Update to earlier review

 

I am really glad that I exchanged this remote instead of just returning it. This makes watching netflix on the PS3 a more streamlined experience for my entertainment center. This remote inspired me to get rechargeable batteries. The remote (I assume...

Works for my PS3, my xbmc, my cable, and my TV ; Very easy to program (had to teach it a few commands but that was easy) ; I wish there were more remotes like this

First one was broken. I called the warranty department for interlink and always got voicemails and never once received a callback ; Drains the batteries quickly ; Backlight for the buttons would have been nice but I knew better before I bought it

This is the RINGER of Universal Remotes!

 

The Blu-Link has let me remove the batteries and put all my other remotes far away (once I custom programmed the Blu-Link). With every other universal remote I'd tried there were always limitations. For example: I couldn't turn the surround sound...

Great

 

This is the only bluetooth/ir universal remote on newegg as of May 2010, in fact it was the only one I could find online. I'm satisfied.

Good buttons, learns from other remotes, looks like it will do just about anything. Controls the ps3 without needing a infrared usb dongle plugged into it. Nice feature that lets has the volume buttons control your stereo/tv/whatever regardless of what...

My Honeywell lcd tv wasn't in the code list, however it learned all the buttons from the tv's remote without any issues

Good Product

 

Remote works very well for all devices. Including Scientific Atlanta DVR box (8300HD I believe), Pioneer receiver (low end model), and of course the PS3

Only con I can think of is the buttons not lighting up. Tough to see in the dark especially because the buttons are not very big, but not worth losing an egg

Some buttons do not work

 

I was very disappointed with this remote as it looked like exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately, without the arrow keys working, I can not rewind using my xbmc and I can not navigate using netflix on the ps3.

Easy to program

Left arrow button and a few other do not work. It does not work on any programing choice (ps3, tv, dvd, etc.) ; In order to return it to newegg, I have to pay close to $10.00 in shipping ; I tried calling the manufacturer and it does straight to voicemail
