Strengths:Easily adapts to all control functions for all devices - if not through the code lookup - then using the "learn" function. Excellent pricepoint. Easy function navigation despite the absence of fancy display screens and "activity" programming.
Review:Having been previously frustrated by managing numerous controls for tv, bluray, amp, cable, cd player; and then by trying to adapt all these through various "universal" remotes , I was delighted to find this solution at your website. There is peace in the house again (at least with respect to the remote controls).

Strengths:Lots of buttons to program
Weaknesses:No backlighting, keys are small
Review:I got a Sony RM-VL900 back in 2002 which I still love. But it's long in the tooth and lacking many buttons more modern remotes have. Last year I got an RM-VL600 since it had been modernized, but found it still lacking.

Last week I bought the RM-VL610 and it has solved most of my problems with the earlier remotes. It still controls eight devices but it adds 12-15 buttons to the number of programmable functions, which the older remotes sorely needed. Finally there are previous chapter and next chapter functions that should have been on the earlier remotes. I really missed those keys and had to use other keys that would have been useful if not needed to page forward and backward in DVDs and CDs.

The RM-VL610 is an excellent remote with 50 standard keys plus 4 system control macros, plus the device keys can be used as macros. There is plenty of learning memory on board so you can store 50 buttons from 8 remotes for at least 400 unique functions that can be learned.

Amazing power for such a low price! The only negatives are no backlighting, small keys - and really, couldn't they have put an open/close tray button to the left of the power button. Still these are minor quibbles that you can live with.
