JP1, Harmony, URC
Ergonomics, large code database, DirecTV RF capability.
Clunky software, inability to add advanced codes, short battery life.
This remote does have some quirks and limitations, but considering these are going for around $50 on ebay, I think they're an excellent value. The review didn't even mention that these are the only universal remotes that can control DirecTV equipment in RF mode without the use of an extender. That alone makes this a killer deal.
Simply the worst remote I have ever used in terms of value proposition. Even at half the price (as pointed out in RC's review), it is worth half as much again. Terrible programming interface. No state memory combined with no variables means it's worse than a Harmony.
