Excerpt: If One For All 's Comfort Line 5 is cheap and cheerful, this Sony is cheap and nasty, with its big, plasticky and uncomfortable design. It comes preset with Sony codes, but for some reason it wouldn't operate our BDP-S550 Blu-ray player. You can add non-Sony devices, but the list of codes is rather short (LG isn't mentioned at all, for instance), and if there's no code listed it's a long and slightly fiddly process to cycle through every one that might work.
Pros: Comes pre-calibrated with Sony commands, price
Cons: Looks, usability, has a limited series of options
