Summary: You shake it to start it. That was new to me, but easy to learn. I bought a second remote so one is at both ends of the couch and so in a few more years if first remote quits and I can't locate a replacement I still have a second remote to keep using with TV.
Pros: Performance, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality
Summary: If you have one of the LG Smart TV's that uses this type of remote, I highly recommend the Magic Remote. I think that should be included with the TV since once you use it with the smart features, you'll absolutely think this is a necessity.
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality
Summary: I'm a little disappointed in the lack of controls on this remote compared to the standard remote... Which, for me, definitely makes this in no way a replacement for the standard remote, but an addition to. The action of this remote is a bit hard to control, and sometimes a bit erratic.
Summary: The Magic Remote makes your smart TV experience so much easier. Allows you to search the Internet faster. It's pretty much a wireless remote at your disposal. I gurantee you will never go back to using the regular remote again. The Magic Remote is a must have.
Summary: The product is fine and does what it says, although the necessary waving of the device to get the pointer to display is a bit much. Somewhat awkward to use. In spite of this, I purchased a second Magic remote to be used in a different part of the room.
Summary: Was very easy to install. Worked immediately after hook up. Fits great in my hand. Self explanatory controls. However, my biggest complaint about this remote is you cannot switch inputs. I am a gamer, and do several things with my computer on my tv, and to switch inputs is a pain in the butt.
