I purchased a Harmony which is a much better remote.

This thing wouldn't work with a Phillips Home Theater sound bar with DVD, or my Dish Network receiver/DVR.

You can try to teach it to learn these but that also was a half a--ed result.

Like another review on here, I purchased this remote for $30 through a one-deal-a-day site (probably not worth the $100). So far, the remote is just about everything I had hoped. I am happy with most of the layout and learning capability. I would purchase again in a heartbeat. I list a handful of disadvantages, but they are pretty minor, and the advantages of this remote definitely out weight the disadvantages.

Advantages
The LCD can learn up to 27 buttons for each component. I was able to learn all the PIP and other functions into that area that there weren't dedicated buttons for. Also, I added buttons to my cable component that would control basic functions of the TV and AMP that I would use while watching cable, which is convenient since it takes a couple buttons to switch between components.
Can re-name the buttons on the LCD to whatever you want, which makes the remote very user friendly when others are using it.
Learning buttons from other remotes is very easy. Although it didn't have my receiver or blu-ray player, it was quick and easy to learn all the buttons.
Quick access buttons to your favorite channels, which are easy to set up.
Any button on the remote can be learned to mimic any button on an existing remote (with exception to the HOME, MODE, FAVORITES, and USER buttons).
Button layout is pretty good. Puts the numbers at the bottom, which you don't use much since you can program your favorite channels.
The learning sensor is on the bottom of the remote. This may seem minor, but it is less awkward than having to point the remotes at each other, and can make a difference when you have to learn a lot of buttons.

Disadvantages
The LCD side buttons are not the easiest to press.

At the price listed here 100+ dollars, you can probably find something better. However I got the product from a popular website that sells one item a day for $30. It works pretty well. It had the codes for my 8+ year old Onkyo receiver and an older samsung TV. However it had issues trying to add additional buttons to the samsung controls. I needed to add a "component/tv button" as the AV/TV button on my TV only cycles between the S-Video, analog, AV1 and AV2 inputs but not the 3 component options. I was unable to do this (despite having my TV in its database the learning function refused to work), but eventually discovered that the "enter" button on the phillips remote was set to this functionality. So in the end it worked out okay.

I was able to use the learning function to have it control both my Roku box and an IMPACT audio 3 component selector box just fine.

The one thing that I don't like about the remote is that there is no way to quickly get to your macros. You have to hit "home" then select "macros" then select the macro you want. I wish I could add macros to the favorites menu, (which can be accessed through the "user 1" and "user 2" buttons at the top of the remote) but the only thing the favorites menu can store are channels. Kind of a dumb design move in my opinion but my no means a game-breaker.

If you can pick one up for 30-60 bucks I would, however at this price look into a harmony, I've heard they are much easier to program with a larger database of devices.

I purchased this remote to consolidate my TV, Dish Network Receiver and my Windows Media Center PC. It recognized my Samsung HD LCD TV easily. It did not recognize my Dish Network Receiver. Finally, the whole claim about it recognizing your PC is a false claim. I was able to make this remote learn the individual keys of both my Dish and Windows MCE remotes and learning was fairly easy. A non tech savvy user might have difficulty setting this up.

Pros: The only thing I've found so far is that it has learnt all the remotes I've tried to teach it.

Cons: I don't know where to start but the whole hardware and design is very sub-standard in quality. the upper right and left keys being very close to each other may be difficult to press. the upper keys are not very sensitive and require pressing hard to use its function. In fact, I've had this remote only 30 hours and one of the key has stopped responding already. The overall response to other devices is very slow and there is a lag in response time. The manual/website says that this remote controller has capability to operate a PC but the PC operation or learning label doesn't even appear on the menu screen. I would not recommend this remote to anyone looking for a multi function remote controller. I suggest to spend a little more time in research and more money on a more reliable product.

Verified Purchase
Do not believe the other reviews. I read all the reviews on here about this remote and was a little concerned about buying but I got a really good deal so I figured why not. Once the remote arrived, I took the remote out of the box put the batteries in and clicked on set up. First I hooked up my TV Panasonic Vera Plasma that I bought in 2010. It worked with the first code. Second I hooked up my Panasonic Blu-ray that I bought last month. It worked with the second code. Then I hooked up the receiver a Sony system my stepmom gave me that she bought in 2001 worked with the second code. Then all that was left with just a couple of advance settings like making sure the volume on the receiver always changed instead of the TV volume. In total it took about 5 minutes to get completely set up. I do not know what the other people were doing but this thing worked great right out of box. It was easier to set up then my dad's Harmony.
