Summary: most complicated remote I ever seen . I still don't know if it functioned correctly or not. It did some things and not others. compared to the one I got to replace this one, a most difficult device.
Summary: You are paying under $10 a unit, so do not expect much, but they do what they are meant to do. Plus - Nice list included in the instructions with hundreds of codes makes this easy to setup. Minus - It feels like cheap, light, may-fall-apart plastic but I have only had them for 1 week so I cannot comment on durability, just on feel.
Summary: I bought this to"back up" the remote control that came with my new hdtv and my DirecTV HD remote control. It does almost everything that both of them do at a reasonable price. I am happy with it.
