Sony RM-AV3000 Integrated Remote Commander review


Review summary

Stores commands for up to 18 devices; generously spaced keys; internal clock for timing control; excellent coverage area.

Two-handed operation; hard-to-read LCD; impossible to use by feel; complicated programming.

The RM-AV3000 can control just about everything, but it's hampered by overcomplex programming and a nonergonomic design.

Sony RM-AV3000


Sony poured almost every feature and design element it could think of into the RM-AV3000 Integrated Remote Commander--with mixed results.

Stores commands for up to 18 devices ; Generously spaced keys ; Internal clock for timing control ; Excellent coverage area

Two-handed operation ; Hard-to-read LCD ; Impossible to use by feel ; Complicated programming

Most of the Commander's performance problems are ergonomic. We'd love to see a follow-up that offers one-handed operation and a more legible LCD. The programming could be simpler, too. Until a new version comes along, the RM-AV3000 is best suited to...
