Don't Buy Universal Remote Control

gtttwo, ABT Electronics

  • Summary: I own three because they came with the house and entertainment systems. Would never buy them again. It is a good remote but expensive - the MX-900 is not only expensive to purchase but because URC does not provide any software, you have to pay one of their dealers to reprogram it if you change your systems.
  • Pros: Nice Features
  • Cons: Difficult To Program, Eats Batteries, Expensive, Reprogramming Cost

Disappointed

  • Summary: I got this remote as part of a professionally installed A/V system about 3 years ago. It has been unreliable since the beginning. Sometimes it just drops dead and I've found that taking the batteries out and re installing them (like a reboot) brings it back to life. After three years now, the labels on the most used buttons have worn off.
  • Pros: Nice Button Configuration
  • Cons: Difficult To Program, Inconsistent Operation, Poor Durability, Unreliable

Only 2 years

  • Summary: Had professionally installed. Works very well for a couple of years & then the buttons begin to fail. Many of the buttons are now nonfunctional or not responsive until multiple attemps (third year now) and I have to replace the entire unit. Not what you would expect for the price.
  • Pros: Nice Features
  • Cons: Difficult To Program, Lacks durablity
