      Mostly Functional / Weak Backlight

      Posted

      One of the good things for me was it allowed basic functions for my Charter-Spectrum/Cisco cable box. I've never had a universal remote that would. But...detailed actions, like confirming actions (the 4 color buttons on Charter remotes) were not available. Setting up the LG TV and a pretty dated Sony surround sound system went smoothly, but again, controls only basic functions, not detailed actions. Saw no way to control my Playstation, which I didn't expect and is no real biggie, but would have been cool. Finally...the backlight is pretty terrible. It doesn't light the top row (TV, Cable, DVD, Audio) at all. Neither does it light the next row down (Options, Menu, Clear). It does light up pretty well the block of 6 standard control keys (FFWD, Pause, Play, etc.) as well as the 9 number and function keys at bottom of remote. The "up" volume and channel key is lit, but the "down" is not. It may all sound kinda nit-picky, but combine the awkward lighting set-up with a very dim backlight, it seems like a pretty dumb design. It will work and as I got this with a $20 reward certificate, it was worth what I paid.

      Haven't been able to successfully program ANYTHING

      As a former technology trainer by profession, I cannot believe how ridiculous this universal remote is to attempt to program for use. We have a new Sharp 4K TV and an LG soundbar. After spending over 2 hours over 2 days trying to get this dang thing to program properly, using several of the various input methods, we've given up. We've had universal remotes in the past and have programmed without issue. An associate at our local best buy simply grabbed this one for us in store to go with our new TV and soundbar (that we purchased without a remote). Completely worthless to us. We've been able to figure out how to use the TV remote for our Sharp to adjust the volume on the soundbar now. This remote was worthless to us. Waste of money. And I'm not one to give bad reviews, but holy moly.... absolutely unacceptable that this is so hard to program. It blinks as it should and then does NOTHING. No matter which buttons we pushed according to the instructions.

      Too low tech

      This product claims to work with hundreds of devices. However, it does not have the proper buttons to link all of my Toshiba Smart TV's features. For example, to watch Netflix and other streaming channels, I push a button on the Toshiba remote called "Smart Hub." This remote has no button on it that brings up the Smart Hub. Therefore I can't use it with my smart TV. I'm also pretty sure it wouldn't work with a cable or satellite set top box. It is just too simple. Finally, not all of the buttons light up, so you still have to turn on a light to see the labels for the buttons in the middle.

      Great replacement for a Roku remote!!!!

      I got this to be able to change TV sound and turn on TV, etc. I wanted a remote that would be easier than the add-on for the Roku. I also got the remote for bigger buttons. I have not tried it in darkness, but it lights up also. My only complaint is the up/down/right/left circle button should have been bigger. My index finger tries to cover the middle OK button and I have smaller hands, too. Other than that I am really satisfied with the ease moving through Roku functions. A non shiny black surface would show fewer fingerprints, but still nice looking, nonetheless. Very happy with purchase!!!!!

      Not "universal" at all. Controls only 2 devices.

      This claims to be a 4 device universal remote. Unfortunately, it only controls 2 of mine. Despite claiming to control streaming sticks, it doesn't work with a Roku stick because it doesn't have Bluetooth capability. Also, despite getting additional codes from the Customer Support desk that didn't work, it won't control a Sanyo combination DVD/VCR player. As a result, it does only half of what I bought it for. Not worth the effort and aggravation to return for refund or exchange. I question why BestBuy wastes store space with this product.

      The remote seemed fine. Easy to program and use, but the apple tv complicated things. could not turn on/off apple tv with it so still needed the teeny tiny slippery apple tv remote which was the whole purpose for getting a universal remote! It's an Apple tv issue, not this remote. Also, had to program the apple tv on the remote through the apple tv, NOT the remote itself. So, if not using apple tv then it's a fine remote.

      Easy to program

      I was very excited to learn that I could get a remote for my television when the manufacturers remote broke. Love this remote! Its very easy to program. As a matter of fact, the first code I used programmed the remote to my TV. This remote does not have to be pointed at the television like so many do. It just has to be somewhere in the area. Only reason I didn't give it a five star is because it doesn't light up. It would be five star if it lit up so I can view the remote commands in the dark.

      Good Deal for the price

      This remote does the job for its price. I bought it because my other TV remote was demolished by my daughter. I was looking for something cheap that would allow me to switch between inputs, turn the tv on and off and adjust the volume. This remote does all that and more. One downside is that every now and then the remote will loose the code for the tv and I have to program it again.
