Allow me to make this very easy for you. This is the last remote that you will ever need. It is comfortable, has a full color screen and black-lighted buttons so that you can find the power button when you wake up, after you fell asleep to SportsCenter.
However this does so much more than just that. This remote can control over 200,000 devices. Not only that, but it can control them in a specified order. So you can turn on your TV, then your cable box, and then the surround sound. But more importantly, you can replace the 50 remotes you have lurking around the living room with just one. No more digging through the couch only to come up with the wrong remote.
