Strengths:I have the OFA 9960
Looks, ease of set-up, Controls everything in my theater
Weaknesses:None yet
Review:I just purchased last weekend and after programing and use, all I can say is wow! The device works great.

The unit is very up-to-date with features that controlled everything on my 50" Panasonic DLP TV, DVD, Comcast Cable box out of the box, and after it "learned" 3 keys, my Yamaha AMP!

I disabled the motion sensor via maual, and set the backlight to turn off after 8 seconds. Perfect!

Strengths:I saw a lot of problems with this device turning on when you don't want it to. There is an option in the manual called 'tilt', you can set it so the only time it turns on is when you press a key.
Weaknesses:The 800 number you get to program new codes in is only open 8:00-4:30 M-F (cst), which just happen to be my work hours. If you can't call them, they should have the remote program noises available on-line.
Review:Overall a ver smarr remote that can be upgraded via sound. I got mine cheap on eBay, so no complaints here.

Strengths:Easy to use and it learning capability is nice. Big improvement of the previous 6 In 1 model. Motion sensor can now be disabled in the newer model.

The Glow keys are very nice in dark rooms

Adjustable brightness control
Weaknesses:Battery life is shorter than on the non illuminated All for One models.
Review:I have upgraded from the Radio Shack IN 15-2133 and it is a big improvement over the first generation model. It is easy to set up and has learned all of the missing buttons from my television and audio receiver. I have turn off the motion sensor by using setup options 985. This feature only works if your model ends in B001.

The on time can be increased up to 20 seconds as well.

You can also adjust the brightness control for improving battery life.

Battery life is increased by turning the sensor off which was not easily done on previous models without voiding your warranty.

I am happy with it it overall and if your on a budget the URC-9660 is a very nice option.

Strengths:Everything but the battery life
Weaknesses:The battery life
Review:I have not used this thing for 8 months...finally I found the instruction to take out the motion sensor...the remote works perfect now...take off the back cover, and seperate the back housing from the unit. Remove the small silver box motion sensor with a soldering is about in the middle of the unit...inside you will find two small ball bearings...this is the cause of the battery drain. You have to press any button to reactivate the control and it will shut off normally.

Strengths:Ease of configuration, huge built in database of devices, neat EL backlighting, light & stylish.
Weaknesses:Battery life, vibration switch sensitivity, inability to customize, limited learning capabilities.
Review:I bought this remote to control a Mitsubishi big screen HDTV, Dish Network 811 HDTV receiver, and Yamaha Home Theatre in a Box. Setup and configuration was as easy as any I've ever tried. The Mitsubishi and Yamaha codes worked right out of the box, but I had to reconfigure the Dish 811 to use channel 1 remote in order to get the built in codes to work. The remote is aesthetically pleasing to look at and very easy to use. Fading in and out on the keys is really cool, and displaying only the keys you need for the current device is an OFA Kameleon hallmark. I own two of the previous Kameleon remotes, and this one is so much better, I am contemplating replacing them with the URC9960 8n1.
On the Con side, The remote's vibration switch is way too sensitive, though it is possible to turn off the switch (activate the remote by pushing a button). Under some modes, the remote doesn't show all the keys until you use the scroll button. Like the reviewer, I wondered by Dish just doesn't show them all anyway.
Battery life will likely be bad, as it is on all Kameleon remotes. I am using RayoVac 15 minute rechargeables with all the Kameleon remotes, with no problems.
Very nice remote with a few minor annoyances, well worth the low price though.

Strengths:Value, Design, Practicality
Weaknesses:None yet.
Review:I purchased the new Kameleon 8 which includes a cut off for the vibration switch, so I haven't experienced any battery problems as of yet. So far it works great. I was able to program all the advanced functions using the learning feature. My only complaint is that the thing stinks.. literally. Sort of a weird seran wrap chemical smell. I think it go away.
