"Great remote! Easy set-up and intuitive controls."4.5 starson by wwightm
Pros: Set-up, use, his/hers favorites, "Quick Power"
Cons: Video Transport controls
Summary: An excellent remote. I have not had any of the high-end universal remotes (Logitech, Monster, etc.) and had been using the "universal" that came with my Onkyo TX-SR605 receiver. Set-up was much easier than the other universal remotes I had used in the past (My Onkyo remote as well as the older generic universals). It did not have my Onkyo receiver in the presets, so I had to program it in there. To program the Prestigo was a breeze. Just line up the two remotes, tell the Prestigo what you are doing in the "Learn" menu and press the buttons on the manufacturer's remote and it learns it - simple as that! My wife (a very non-technical person) was able to figure the remote out and operate everything with very little guidance from me.
One feature that I really do like is the "Quick Power." My Onkyo "universal" had to be switched to each device to turn it off and on, but with the Prestigo you simply hit "Quick Power" and then select the components you want to turn off/on.
I agree with the CNET reviewer about the placement of the video transport controls. It is not the most ideal placement for use when playing DVD's or using the DVR. It can be used, it is just a little awkward.
I found this remote on sale at Circuit City for $40 and compared to what these other universal remotes sell for and what they can do over this one, there is no way I would buy any remote other than this. I can press a few more buttons to save $100+!
