Worth the work

 

Overall excellent product. I bought this for my husband's birthday and his reaction was the best I've ever gotten on any gift. He still grunts happily when he figures out something new with it.

This remote works everything! It also has the ability to record macros so that you can turn on/off and control several things with just one touch of a button

Only a couple of things - the programming procedure is rough if you're not a whiz at these things (but is well worth the effort) and it can't quite hold every function from every other remote so set your macros wisely

Great Deal

 

Great remote, but you have to have the patience to sit down and program macros to use it to it's FULL potential. It took me 1.5 hours to program 6 devices, and it works great! I'll never go back to using single remotes or cheap universals again. Saved...

Very good remote

 

I've been using this remote for a while and I'm very pleased with it. It does absolutely anything I could ask for. I have a macro for my DVD player that will 1-Power on TV, 2-Power on DVD player, 3-switch to correct video input, 4-turn on stereo...

I've been pining over this remote for about a year, so when it finally went on sale, I snatched it up. It was easy to set up, and easy to use. I went from 5 remotes (TV, DVR, DVD, VCR and Stereo) to this one. It has automatic programming capabilities,...

This remote is wonderful and I love the system control buttons. The documentation is not well written, but once you get the hang of programming this, it is easy. One thing that you must understand is that when you "learn" a key, you cannot change the...

Point 1 being buy.com has it cheaper than ANYONE. Point 2-This remote is flawless besides I wish the backlight was a tad brighter. Controls my Cablebox/DVR and ALL of my components wonderfully. It had no problem learning any remote I wanted it to....

Unbiased review

 

I bought this remote after a lot of research as I was looking for a complete universal remote that could replace all my existing remotes. I finally settled on this and I am not at all disappointed. I now got rid of 10 remotes. Programing is really easy...

This device is well designed. Its has significant flexibility in user configured functions. I have programmed the functions of twelve remotes into this unit. Its programming design is very logical. However, this can be obscured by a somewhat confusing...

Like i said above I got rid of five (5) remotes. I even custom programmed a mifi xm radio. This thing uses 4 batteries, which sounds bad, but consider that it replaces the 10 batteries I would need otherwise with the individual remotes. It's worth the...

Sony RM-AV3100 Remote Control

 

I purchased this remote for my husband as an anniversary gift. Boy, I couldn't have made a better purchase. This remote is fabulous and he couldn't love it more! We had problems with previous remotes needing just the right angle to work. Not this...
