Summary: Universal Remote Control may have finally caught up to the Joneses with an inexpensive color LCD remote control, but don’t mistake the Digital R50 as being more flash than substance like so many of those other mass market models.
Excerpt: Now that HDTVs and surround sound systems have conquered our living rooms, it takes a handful of handhelds just to fire up a movie. But with a single universal remote, you can consolidate an army of controls into one device to rule them all.
Pros: Cool reddish backlight perfect for nighttime navigation. No computer or web connection needed for operation. No charging cradle required.
Cons: No user manual means gizmo novices might get lost in the setup. 0 price point isn’t super pricey, but then it’s not the cheapest universal remote out there.
