Does what a $70 Learning remote does, but for $15!

 

Depending on how you browse CNET, you may or may not see the negative reviews for this product. Regardless, I find complaints about the codes not working for this or that home theater item laughable. This is a LEARNING remote. If the codes don't work...

Modern, thin design fits well in hand. It's a cheap LEARNING remote

The "one color" buttons may make it hard for those used to Crayola colored buttons to remember button functions. Small button labels and Finicky Learning newer DISH remotes

Decent remote at fair price, but some issues

 

Good remote, goo price. Has some issues regarding the delay between pressing buttons and wearing out fairly quickly. Those issues are easy to overlook when you consider all the features, including the learning function.

I like this remote because it handles 8 devices including my Tivo. I also have a non-name-brand video selector, and I like that I can teach this learning remote the remote for that video selector. The price is also very good

What I don't like about this remote is that the buttons seem to have a delay between button presses. When I press 3,3 to go to channel 33 for instance, the second 3 usually does not "take", but will if you wait a sec. I don't like to have to pause

Works with all that I have

 

Thsi has worked with all devices I have and learned the Stereo remote control that I have. Very affordable. Other brand were much more expensive at the time of purchase

Doesn't recognize a Daewoo DVD player

 

I purchased this to replace a broken remote for my Daewoo DVD player, and none of the codes in the book worked for this device. I tried to look at the Philips website to see if they had updated codes, but I can't even find this particular remote on their

Garbage

 

I would've felt better giving my $7.00 to the easter bunny. Go to walgreens and pick up something else.

Small, cheap, simple layout. Very sturdy though (after being thrown against a wall several times) it still works (well, at least when it comes to the things it seems to only work with).

Does not work with most of my accessories and refuses to learn signals.

Cheap

 

Well, you get what you pay for, I had to buy this before when my good remote was accidentally thrown away, so I guess I am a little surprised that I even used it this long.

The remote is cheap and can be found at lots of stores, I purchased it at a CVS. The buttons are big and setup is as easy as they come.

The buttons don't provide the best tactile feel. The top buttons are awkward. After using the remote for about 7 months or so it just suddenly died completely. Even after putting in new batteries it would not work, not a single button.

Not a good remote

 

My mother originally purchased this remote when the remote on her VCR mysteriously stopped working. It was only by trying to use this one that we realized that the problem was with the VCR itself and not the remote. (The VCR kept locking up, ...

Easy to use when it works

Doesn't always work

Worth Every Penny Saved

 

I love this remote. Picked it up at K-Mart for around $15 and it worked flawlessly with my Sanyo TV and Emerson DVD/VCR combo unit. In fact, it works better than the remotes that they came with and it's even more stylish. With the old ones, you had to...

Product that does what it's supposed to and does it great

This thing broke

 

I've had it for about two years and it broke. This thing was fun at first, making any button perform any fucnction. Such as, making the 6 button turn on an off the TV to goof around with friends when they were over. It was simple to use, but as with...
