Summary: I am very happy with this product. I use it for my entire entertainment system, PC, tuner, TV, cable box, DVD player and CD player. Just for the heck of it, I tried the 'learn a function' option to see if it would work for my remote controlled lights and it did. Amazing.
Summary: Easy installation on my living room media center PC running Vista Ultimate. Used the software from the included CD and even though there is a newer version, decided that if it's not broken, why fix it and refused the update. Works like a charm for the past two weeks. Very easy to program to control other devices with clear and easy instructions. Recognized my Denon receiver and Vizio TV instantly. Simple, with all the necessary media center buttons.
Summary: I've had my Philips SRM7500 for just over a year now, having bought it from some Remote retailer on the internet for like $179 when I couldn't find it anywhere else. I can tell you that this remote is utter crap. It loses connection all of the time, the software is terrible, and for the life of me, I can't figure out how to get the sideshow implementation to work correctly, or even display at all.
Summary: works well in general. The range on the PC part isn't terribly far. I ended up putting the USB key on a USB extension and mounting it centrally - works much better. Otherwise, it's a universal remote as any other.
