Summary: This is a great remote. It's been in use in our living room for years and it continues to perform wonderfully. The only downside is that there are devices produced that don't work with IR remotes.
Summary: Some people swear by them, I personally did more swearing at mine. I ended up smashing it with a hammer when I couldn't take it anymore. I'd rather have 10,000 remotes than the aggravation this thing caused.
Summary: GLOW button to selectively glow the buttons when you need to for a few seconds. Can use multiple millisecond pauses in the programming so that it sends the signal at the right time to certain devices like, let's say, you turn the TV, A/V receiver and Cable box on.
Pros: Great, great value. Bought the 510 Refurbished and couldn't be happier. Batteries last us a long time. I think I have only changed them once in the year we had this. And only because we thought it might be getting less sensitive. It is pretty good about not having to be pointed RIGHT at things. I...
Cons: FF and SKIP and Pause buttons arrows are wearing but it gets used HEAVILY! Numeric buttons are small and close together but it's not a crying shame..
Summary: The lag between key presses really kills this device for me. I have a ton of media I need to scroll through on my media center and the only way to move through it fast enough is by holding the buttons down, which makes it move too fast.
Pros: Easy to set up and program. Able to handle all my devices.
Summary: I purchased this remote 4 years ago when I got my first HD tv. I loved it and it finally kicked the bucket about 2 months ago. I abused it pretty much.. went through 2 moves and a divorce. It was only $80 at that time. And that wasn't some special sale, that was EVERYWHERE.
Summary: bought another and the 2 yr svce contract....still a good deal for a $59 total
Pros: Handles my TV, VCR, DVD player, AV receiver and cable box in the convoluted hook-up that I have. It's light-weight and durable, but for..........
Cons: 1 day after the Manufacturere's 90-day warranty....Does not like coffee at all....even if just a drop falls on it and it's allowed to dry out! It continues to work after a fashion but looses the activities key and only functions in "devices" mode when glowing. Resetting from the site doesn't help...
Summary: I had the Logitech 1000 and hated the remote, would reboot on me, lock up, send the code mutli-times. I stopped using that and just used the remote that came with my Cable box, got tired of manual switching to my game system and my media box that I started looking for a new remote.
Pros: Responds fast, lets me controls all my devices, even my media box. Also like how this low price remote still allows you to "learn" IR codes.
Cons: only supports 5 devices, which is ok for right now. Not sure if this was my error, or something with the remote, but when i had the Logitech 1000 I was able to set up "Play Game" without a game device, but this remote i have to put a device, either a game system or my media box, problem with that...
Pros: Programmed it to my Sharp TV, Sony Surround Sound, Xbox, and Lenovo Computer. Very easy setup: install the programon your computer, connect your remote via USB, select your devices, and the remote programs itself.
Cons: Limited on functionality. It handles the majority of the functions for all devices, but I do find myself reaching for the other remotes on occasion.
