Although no special handling was requested the remote control arrived one day later.

Perfect for Controlling Everything
From this one control, I control a cable box, television, DVD/VCR combo, BlueRay player, DVR, and 400 CD music changer.
Easy to program but follow the instructions carefully, particularly "press and hold the Device Select button you want to program for more than 3 seconds"...."

Best bang for the buck
"...I only gave this 3 stars for reliability because I have owned it just a few days. Based on the look and feel, it appears to be a solidly built product.
The buttons have a nice rubbery feel, and it even has a rubber strip running around the center of the remote body to give it a little extra gripping power.
With 60 or so usable buttons X 8 devices, and I believe all buttons can be learned if needed, that's a total of over 450 commands that can be learned, on a remote under $30!..."

Great Remote Next Version will be amazing
The remote is great, I bought it after buying my home theater system.
Took a little bit to learn how to program it but after getting the concept it took only 10 minutes...."

Works well except for two devices: the only Sony device I have, a CD changer, and a fairly rare Daewoo DVD changer.
The Daewoo was somewhat expected by the Sony device where the Remote claims to work for out of the box is disappointing...."

The Best Sony Universal Remote

Finally Down to 1 'Remote': Even Better, 2
I've tried several universal remotes, including a Pronto and a Harmony 880.
But it wasn't until this remote that I was able to get my system down to one remote, without dedicating hours of time to set the remote up...."

Pros: - Great bang for the buck.
"...Cons: None yet..... I don't expect any either.
Other Thoughts: I had a similar Sony remote for many years, until we finally wore it out.
Tried a different brand which was junk, because the buttons had to be pressed so hard and a poor layout of the buttons...."

Learning Doesn't Work at ALL
Hold Set for 3 secPress Select and SetEnter 9 - 8 - 8Press BDAt this point you would press something on your other remote to teach the Sony, but the Set button just flashes a couple times and then quits.

Some features don't work.
The automatic power on feature has worked in the past with system controls but he no longer seems to work.
With that feature working this remote has tons of value...."

Learning does not work
"...I am generally tech savy but could NOT make this work at all. I even wondered if they had their codes messed up in the manual and tried all the other codes but NO!
Nice remote but if you want a remote that can learn button functions look elsewhere.

Does an ok but not great job
We have an all Sony home theater set up (except for the satellite receiver) and this remote, after programming, will turn on all the right components and set the inputs correctly only about two thirds of the time.
Frustrating for the less tech savvy members of the family...."
