The reviewer has used this remote control for 1-3 months.
Review 1 made on Sunday September 10, 2000 at 5:31 PM.
Strengths:Very easy setup.
Excellent range. Better than any of the original units.
Easy to use for entire family.
Weaknesses:Not quite enough programable buttons.
Not knowing which buttons are in use.
Keys are inactive when the backlight goes out, even though unit is still on.
Review:One more row of buttons could have been added without increasing it's length significantly. After several restarts, I found the easiest way to setup a device is to first hide all the buttons you don't need(or haven't got a use for) first, then go through the initial setup. You can then go back and set up those buttons skipped later.

I find the position of the volume inconvenient. It would have been better to reverse the volume and channel combo so that the volume was in the center of the unit(minor I know).

Why the TRANS key function couldn't have been hidden in some way, therefore giving button space back to the user is beyond me. Also, recording macros of more than a few keystrokes is awkward because nothing is actually transmitted during recording. This makes writing down keystrokes first a necessity.

Besides not knowing which buttons have been programmed or not is overshadowed by the inconvenience of buttons not being active as soon as the backlight goes out(10-30 seconds) even though the unit is still on. This requires a screen tap before you can hit a function. Why?

All-in-all, for the price it beats anything else I've looked at. I hate a lot of multi-function hard buttons, especially those at the bottom of the unit so you need two hands to operate. Having buttons change function with a device change is the only way to go, in my opinion.
