Philips Prestigo SRU9600

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

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.

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.

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...

great remote

 

This is a wonderful remote i had used for about 2 weeks and is amazing how you can control all your devices with just one remote. I am using it for my lcd TV, PLASMA TV,TV/VCR, DIRECTV, DISHNETWORK, CABLEBOX, DVD PLAYER AND EVEN MY MEDIA CENTER PC....

is only for 8 devices

Broke Before I Got It To Work

 

I love the idea of a universal remote because right now it takes two remotes to work our TV. One is just for the volume, the other just to change channels. We got in this predicament because we bought a cheap flat panel HD TV and we ...

Small, lighted

Screen was damaged first week we owned it
