Expert Review

 

The Philips Prestigo SRU9600 is great if you are looking for a basic universal remote control, but fails when put up against its more functional competitors.

Works with wide range of devices, can learn from existing remote, can be programmed for use with up to eight devices

Bulky, too expensive, limited functionality, superfluous scroll wheel

Philips Prestigo SRU9600 universal remote

 

This slightly too long, overweight universal remote control from Philips aims to replace up to eight remote controls through its programmable features.

This is a very good remote

 

I have a Panasonic HD TC32LX50 TV, a RIO HT2030 Home Theater, a Scientific American 8300HD HDTV/PVR Cable Box and a D-LINK DSM320 Media Center. It took a bit of work but for the first time I have a remote that controls all of theses various boxes on...

Not A good Remote

 

There are other remotes which cost a bit more but delivers what you expect!

Ok Remote if you have a just a few devices

Hard to program, very bad touchscreen, not rechargeable and eats batteries like crazy, button layout is not good. Very high price for what it delivers

Definitely a good buy

 

I found mine used for quite a good deal, probably a third of the "new" cost. Even if its previously used, its easy to wipe the past settings, to get you up and running. I'm just happy to finally dump that loathable Olevia remote to a shelf somewhere,...

This device really can do it all. More expensive than RCA and Sony's various ""learning"" universal remotes, this is more of a Lexus to their Toyotas. I have an Olevia TV, Philips DVD, and DISH Satellite system, and not only did it get almost every key...

I had to fix maybe 3 keys total (all for the DISH, not the TV). But its far less than a normal con, as its fairly easy to do. It is heavier than what came with your tv, but I suppose it makes a good chin-rest when you're laying down. The touch screen...
