    Decent for the price

    This is a simple remote that can be complicated to use depending on your equipment setup. I have an insignia Roku TV and a Samsung soundbar. This remote had a "Watch TV" mode (which is enabled by default) that locks certain controls to the TV even if you've pressed the cable box/streaming button. You can turn that off, and then you can lock the volume control to a soundbar, as long as you're still in cable/streaming mode. Which is great if you have a separate cable box or Roku device. Problem is, I have a Roku TV. So I need to be in TV mode to control playing, pausing, etc. And in TV mode, the volume buttons control the TV, not the soundbar. So I have to hit the cable/streaming button, then use the volume buttons, then hit the TV button if I want to play, pause, or select a new show. Not a huge complaint in a $15 remote, but still it would be nice to be able to lock volume to the soundbar. Other than that, it's a reliable, easy to program remote for a low price. If you have a separate Roku or other streaming device and a soundbar, it should work perfectly.

    Works only TV and Cable Box (no DVD)

    I had to return and exchange this item. Though it listed itself as Universal Remote on the Best By website and said it would operate a DVD unit, it does not. The unit operates only 2 devices and has no ability to be a DVD remote control (it uses the cable box to control a DVD and I do not subscribe to cable). BB as usual exchanged the item giving me credit towards an RCA 3 device universal remote that works beutifully to control my Samsung DVD BluRay unit and, also works the TV (now I have 2 remotes for the TV!)

    Marginal Functionality

    I wanted a remote that would work the TV, Sound Bar, and a Roku device. This remote claimed to do all that, but did not work with the Roku and did not have the ability to adjust volume from any of the device functions (called master volume). If you just want it to run a TV and/or sound bar and don't mind constantly having to select function buttons to adjust volume or change a channel, this remote will work. I can't speak for the quality or life span because I returned it after 2 hours of trying to get it working.

    I was concerned that a universal remote would not serve my needs. I have a complicated double process between my TV and FiOS. But this remote works just fine with minor sacrifices. For example, I can't forward in 25-second chunks; it's confusing to get back to live TV when you pause or rewind; it takes a while to master the Roku processes like pausing, rewinding, etc. Overall, I'm very pleased with this universal remote and recommend it.

    This remote was so much easier to set up than expected. I purchased this to use with an LG tv, but a few days later I lost the remote for my samsung tv. It took less than a minute to program the remote for my samsung tv and less than a minute to switch back to the lg tv! It does not have buttons for the hub on smart tv's, but those features are still accessible from the tv menu so that is not a big problem. Great universal remote, could not be easier to set up.

    I purchased this Insignia universal remote as a replacement to my Samsung Smart TV remote. Setting up the remote to work with the Samsung Smart TV was a pretty straightforward process. The one con that is quite annoying (and the reason I deducted 2 stars) is that this remote lacks a 'Back' or 'Return' function, which makes navigating apps such as youtube and hulu quite tedious!

    I have an old LED screen Tv that has been working perfectly . The remote wasn’t made as well as the TV and conked out . I thought I was out of luck because it’s an older set but I saw this on sale and gave it a try . In a couple of minutes , it was set up and ready to go - works better than the old one .

    I lost my remote for an Element TV and was frustrated I could not use the TV without its remote. Purchased this Insignia universal remote as a Best Buy deal of the day for a great value for the price, and works perfectly on this old TV. I highly recommend this basic remote.

    We ended up losing the remote to my son's TV, and by we I mean my son lost his remote to his TV.... Either way we had to get a replacement, and we ended up picking up this remote which works perfectly. Super simple to set up, had him clicking away in minutes.

    We bought a new Insignia Tv and it wasn't long before the remote didn't work.Seemed like it was faulty I ordered a new one and it is working pretty well. It is a little different than the original but is better. It was easy to adjust to my Tv I just have to get used to where the buttons are.

    I wasn't sure if it would have my DYNEX TV on the list of available TVS but it did and all the buttons work with the TV. It was also super easy to setup. I haven't had a remote for years. I should have picked up a universal remote a long time ago.

    I bought this to replace the new remote from the cable company. You can talk to that one but need a magnifying glass to find the power button. The Insignia remote does what it should, not more. no less. Too bad I have to toggle between cable & tv controls.

    My young son managed to lose our old remote months ago. I ran in real quick for this as a replacement. Got it home and it actually worked without needing to be programmed... not sure why but I'm not complaining.

    Bought to use with my Insignia tv and Wow digital adapter. Works as it should. The remote doesn’t offer any macros, but it gets the job done with out being too intuitive. I like that the smart tv features work with this remote.

    Works like you would expect a remote to but it didn't have a back button so when I'm using Netflix, Hulu, etc if I was looking at a show and didn't want to watch it I had to exit the app and reopen it.

    Bought this remote when the one with my tv just stopped working, its okay. Some functions do not work, the pause button actually just resets the episode and doesnt actually pause, but other than that its decent

    I purchased this Insignia TV remote for an elderly friend who had misplaced the original one that came with her TV. I am not sure it is identical to the original one; however, it was uncomplicated, easy to set up and use.

    I lost the control in the move for one of my older version televisions. Luckily i was able to find this universal control with a great price. It connected instantly and i never have any problems.

    I purchased it because the remote that came with my new TV has a display button, but no guide button (to see what's on next). Unfortunately, all of the other buttons worked -- but the guide button would not work with my TV.
