Finding the perfect universal remote for your home theater is no easy task. Logitech's Harmony line is the natural choice although admittedly, it's not for everyone. If you're looking for something that feels a bit more modern, then have a...

What's with the obsession with touchscreens? People sometimes like to adjust the volume or something else without looking away from the screen. For this you need buttons you can feel. Not to mention older users (like 55 and up) often need glasses to read small print and knowing button locations can really help.

They do this in cars too... hard to use touchscreens when a button would serve just fine. I'll bet if touchscreens were the old technology we'd all be excited about how well the 'New' Button remotes worked.

Volume is on the side as a hard button. So is power. I totally expect those to be physical buttons. So I'm glad to find that they are. But for TV stations and shows, I find large icon's of what I'm looking for to be easier to find, over some row and columns of numbers. Honestly, I tend to forget which channel shows are on. And it's nice just to press Sheldon's face and not have to remember that Big Bang Theory is on channel 8 or 9, or was it 6?

For this remote I like the design, the size, and the price. But it looks easy to lose. I hope that it has battery life and a pager button that you can attach to the TV for when you lose this little thing.

Whoever comes up with a downloadable software like this (to be used with smart devices w/ built in IR) will kill both this brand and the logitech harmony lineup.
