Philips Prestigo SRU8015

 

Universal remote controls have become increasingly popular due to the consolidation and convenience they provide the home theater buff with an increasingly burgeoning rack of gear. While manufacturers have approached the technology in a number of...

Controls up to 15 devices; 15 activities; color screen; cable and satellite channel logos; no PC required.

Rotary wheel underperforms and has odd button layout; most keys are too close together; remote is a bit heavy; no rechargeable battery option; somewhat expensive versus competing models.

The Philips Prestigo SRU8015 universal remote offers relatively easy setup and good control flexibility, but it's sabotaged by a poorly implemented scroll-wheel control.

Philips is well known for their Pronto line of remote control products, but they also make a rather large lineup of handheld universal remote controls. The new Prestigo line represents Philips foray into the consumer remote realm where PC-based...

Beautiful look and feel ; Backlit buttons ; Big, high density color LCD screen

Impossibly small buttons ; Very poor/quirky user interface choices (check button) ; Limited macro capability ; Backlight timeout bug ; Eats AA batteries for breakfast

A decent universal remote

 

Philips' Prestigo SRU8015 is a competent universal remote, but it is difficult to set up.

Doesn't require a PC, good build quality, easy to set up with recognised devices

Small buttons, hard to set up macros, difficult to pair with uncommon devices

Philips Prestigo SRU 8015 remote control review

 

The all-in-one remote market has gone a little quiet recently, possibly due to a more than capable selection of impressive products by OneForAll and Logitech, among others. Philips has come up with something a little different in the Prestigo SRU...

Looks great, excellent colour display, wide range of functions, very easy to set up and configure

Navigational wheel can become a pain during day to day operation; many of the buttons are a bit too close together

A few issues on the design front prevent the otherwise impressive Prestigo from taking top billing

Philips Prestigo SRU8015 review

 

The Philips Prestigo SRU8015 is very easy to initially set up with your kit and looks gorgeous, thanks to its slick design and razor sharp colour screen. However, the layout of the scroll wheel and direction pad can make it fiddly to use and you may...

Slick design ; Great colour screen ; Easy to set up

Scroll wheel could have been better implemented

Conclusion There's a lot to like about the Prestigo. We love the way it's so easy to initially set up and the sharp, colour screen and slick design mean it looks really classy. There are also some seriously cool features like the Favourites mode....

If you want a quality universal remote that doesn't cost the earth Philips SRU 8015 will turn you on. And off.

It's a little on the large side but the Philips Prestigo SRU 8015 is a fine universal remote control. As it sets out to be, it's easy to set-up and it's better to use then more expensive remotes. The circular wheel to move between devices on the large,...

The Philips Prestigo SRU8015 universal remote is a decent remote, but isn't as easy to program as it first appears to be. May suit those who want a PC-less set-up.

PC-less set-up ; Sturdy build ; Can be quick if it recognises all your devices

but can be tedious if it doesn't ; Instructions for macro set-up are obscure ; Small transport buttons

Conclusion Overall, this is a decent remote if you don't want to fiddle around with Web interfaces or go poring through pages and pages of manufacturer's codes. When it works, it's great ... but things become unhinged when the remote comes across a...
