I used these for xmas this year to control the lights outside and i'm using them for baby monitor equipment now...I can't tell you how handy it is to have these around! One of my best purchases of the year!
Negatives first: the units are a little bulky, and can cover multiple outlets. The process of pairing the receivers to the remote can be a little wonky, and you may have to plug and unplug them a couple times before the remote recognizes the plugs and assigns them buttons. (Especially if you care which receivers are paired with which buttons.) Once they're paired, however, they're solid (until you unplug the receivers; then you may need to re-pair).
At first I thought it was a negative to have separate on and off buttons for each receiver - a single on/off toggle would look more elegant and reduce remote clutter. But I find that in situations where I can't directly see the thing I'm controlling, having a dedicated button for each is very nice. It lets me be sure I'm not toggling something on when I think it's being turned off. (Example: I have a power-eating laser printer in the next room; I use this remote to shut off the power to it whenever I'm not using it. When I switch on or off the power from my room, I can hear a the receiver's on/off switch go "tick" -- but if there were not dedicated on/off buttons, I could never be sure whether the tick meant the printer was powering on or off.)
Good button feel. Seems to have pretty good range. Can shoot through at least a layer or two of drywall.
For the price, very good. I suspect going cheaper than this would result in a frustrating, poorly-made product. I'd get this one.
Usually when the on/off button is pressed, the red light at the top was on and bright. After about a year, a few of the buttons started having delayed effect. When the those buttons are pressed, the red light at the top flickered and was significantly dimmer. I had to hold down the buttons for a long time or to keep re-pressing the buttons before they would work. So it was still usable but with glitches. But eventually, more than half the buttons started having the same problem and it made the whole system unusable. I thought it was the battery problem but it wasn't the case. Even with a fresh battery, the problem stayed.
Overall, it seems like this device does not last too long. But to be fair, all the other Wireless Remote Control devices seem to be having the same problem where the hardware becomes defective. I'm in search of a good set and I'm willing to pay more but so far I haven't found any that seems more reliable.
