Love It. Great All-Purpose Remote !!!!
from Washington, DC
About Me Gearhead, Practical, Tech Savvy
Comments about Universal URC Color Remote Control:
Love this remote. it's very user friendly to program and has LEARN function which is helpful....but there's no great guide to setup Macros which are essential. I watched a few YouTube videos and it was super easy. Really works fantastic and i now own three of them on different systems all with the RF base station. the IR works just as well as the RF.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A remote that works!
from SE Wisconin
About Me Tech Savvy
Bought this as I wanted to move my gear out of the main living area (to a different floor of the home) yet keeping the convenience of the remote controls. This unit handles it easily. When joined with an RF base station with the "flashers" attached to the units it easily handles all the remote control functions. The MX-450 has a pretty vast database of product manufacturers that can be selected to find a code set that works. Even if they dont exist you get easy learning to handle those items that you want to add. Highly configurable with the extra screens that you can use to set up specific functions and macros for even more complex things you want to do. You can also download the "archiver" software from the manufacturer and back up your programming and even transfer the profile to another MX-450. If you want all the functionality of a professional universal remote but dont want to spend the extra money for professional programming, this is your option! It also means future upgrading of equipment does not also require extra costs for re-programming as you can do it yourself! You will want to be a little tech savvy yourself to undertake this task though. If you are personally not a little bit of a learning mindset this will not be what you want to undertake yourself - then you will want the units that require professional programming.

So good we bought two
About Me Practical
Comments about Universal Remote Control Universal URC Color Remote Control:
I really like this product because it will turn off all the components at the same time. The tech who programed our remote control even programed it to turn the lights back up in our media room after the entire system is off. We bought one of these remotes for our new media room and liked it so much that we bought one for the tv/dvd/dvr/audio system upstairs too.

Best You Can Find at This Price
About Me Enthusiast, Tech Savvy
I use this remote in my media room to control a Plasma, DVR, DVD and AVR. I also carry the remote throughout the house to control the DVR which is distributed to other zones (using RF via the URC MRF-260 RF Basestation.)Pros:-- It is very easy to program.-- It is a good looking remote and has a ton of well-placed hard buttons.Cons: -- It may give you less control than you may used to (changing graphics for example).-- Once you establish a device, you can't move it to another page. You must delete and then re-add it instead.
Service and delivery comments:
What can I say? I couldn't be happier. I received free ground shipping from Abt and had the remote in my hands the next day (I live in Illinois).
