A decent remote to control multiple components.


Given the price, this is remarkable. I have the same complaints about the comparable Sony VLZ620 yet this is a little easier to use. I have a couple very expensive Sony remotes with LCD screens. This is easier to use in the dark, so it gets used more....

Inexpensive. Backlighting. Logical button arrangement. Macros

Number buttons too close to bottom for one-hand remote operation. Weak infrared output requires exact pointing. Not enough buttons for all features on separate remotes. Buttons often require more than one push. Macros sometimes goof

Works great and well made


This is the second Universal-brand remote I have had - both worked perfectly. I had to use the ''learning'' feature for a few items and it was very easy. The remote is very well made (mine was made in Mexico) and the backlit buttons work well.

Buttons light up and works great


I looked for a remote with buttons that would light up and has a CC button. Didn\'t find any under $100. I bought 2 so my husband and I have one and I think they are great. My husband set them up in 45 minutes. Great remote for the price.

1 for the price and what it does


This remote absolutely cannot be beat in it\'s price range. The ultimate is the MX-980 since it is so highly adaptable via programming on your PC-BUT it costs around $400 AND requires professional programming.

Great remote for the dollar


I bought this product to supplement the Magic Motion remote that came with our LG model 55LM7600 TV, not liking that remote a great deal. This WR7 remote is pre-programmed so that it works with that product to control basic functions. It was also...

Best of the best


I upgraded most of my componets to newer models. This remote was the final piece of the puzzle. I went from 5 remotes to 1 in a matter of 40 minutes. The ease of programing this remote is spectacular. I had to call support for one glitch and she helped...

The WR7 pre-programmed and learning remote control provides dependable control of up to 7 A/V components that will look great in any decor. It is attractively priced. Best of all, you'll never have to hunt for "the right remote" again because they can replace up to seven separate remote controls.
