Overall, others give this:
I lost the remote to my DVD player and needed something simple and compact. This remote works very well! It was seriously easy to program to operate my DVD. In fact, it was so simple that I didn't think it was really programmed and went through the paces again to make sure! I don't know if ease of use varies by brand but all of my electronics are long-standing brands (Magnavox, RCA, etc.). The codes for them worked immediately.
This remote is perfect for older persons who have limited eyesight or reduced manual skills. The buttons are large and clearly marked, and well separated from each other. The remote works perfectly, and the buttons are laid out in a highly usable and logical arrangement. The remote has codes for massive number of different devices.
