"A good universal remote for the money"4.5 starson by jrprip
Pros: Easy to program, even easier to use
Cons: Lighting controls can be trying, multiroom setup average
Summary: Just to clear up some wrong information given by a few of the other reviewers, you most certainly can assign any buttn to any function. Also, while the initial setup may be rigid, once completed it offers a slew of options for fine tuning. You can adjust the macros (activities), the timing, and the delays. It is very easy to program and very easy to use. I am a home theater installer and have programmed remotes from URC, Phillips, Creston, Logitech, and Sony. The remotes from Monster and Logitech are by far the easist to use and program. Sony (remote commander) and Phillips (pronto) remotes are horrible in every way, and URC and Creston remotes are better for more intense multiroom systems but are much more difficult to program and not as easy to use (along with being MUCH more expensive). FYI, the reason all of monster and logitech's programming is done online is very important-if your computer dies all your info is still there, an installer can update your remote remotely, and database updates are constant(literally to the minute) so the codes for your just released brand new blu ray will be there. Fellow Cnet posters, please make sure the information you are dissemenating is accurate before you write a review.
