I've had past experience using the MX-500 remote. I found it to be well designed and functional. I'm looking into picking up a used MX-850. I want to have the capability to program/backup via PC.

First, I understand the 850 is both RF and IR compatible. I have an integrated Xantech IR system. Will the 850 function well with it without the use of a base station?

I've read that the buttons on the 850 don't feel as responsive as those on the MX-500. I'm not entirely sure about the validity of that statement.

Anyway - any opinions on the reliability of the MX-850?

Thanks.

I wouldn't trust any of the mx-850's on ebay. Because of buttons no longer working. I would go with mx-700's, with its gemstone keys.
