"Sense and Simplicity"4.5 starson by peterwhite
Pros: Intuitive user interface with IR to IR programming
Cons: Could have used another row of 'special feature buttons'
Summary: I can't believe I'm about to gush over a remote control but for cripes sake this thing is a work of art. Other than not being packaged with batteries (come on Philips!) all I had to do was point and click. The built-in color menu walked me through everything except programming the icon, color favorite channels. I even set 'activities' like watch cable TV and watch DVD for the wife to point-and-click. Amazing, well worth the price to synch my Motorolla Cable Box, Philips HDTV, Surround Sound systems and Xbox ... yup it even turns that on too. Seriously, if you have 3 or 4 remotes to synch then this is all you need.
