  • Excerpt: I have had this for about 2 years. I was excited with the great possibilities of the device but that quickly dissipated.

  • Summary: A great device for the money but VERY frustrating to set-up. You can either program manually or via your PC but watch out - every time you make a change it wipes out everything. Be prepared for a LOT of trial and error, especially programming macros but once your done you'll be happy. Nothing in this price range comes close.
  • Pros: Durable, Nice Button Configuration, Strong Signal
  • Cons: Difficult to program, Incompatible

  • Summary: This is a tremendous product. I had a previous Sony remote commander I purchased in 2002 and this is a great upgrade.

While it is possible to use the preset programming codes, I prefer to use the impressive learning feature which allows me to program each button individually enabaling me to control multiple components...
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Set Up, Nice Button Configuration, Nice Features, Strong Signal

Get a Logitech Harmony instead

  • Summary: The setup process for this remote was so clunky, counter-intuitive, time-consuming, and error-prone that I am in the process of returning the product. Unlike most other remotes I've used that include a USB connection to enable it to use a computerized setup program (e.g., Logitech), the Sony does not include an automated system for selecting the devices you want to control and simply downloading the proper set of codes.
  • Cons: Horrible setup process, Not intuitive to use
