Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
- It worked once I got the correct code entered - The build quality is comparable to some more expensive remotes I have had - It has automatic code search
Cons:
- The manual is very poorly written, it looks like some word-by-word translation from a non-english language. - The entire list of supported devices is not in the manual (I had to figure out my code with a few automatic attempts) - The automatic code search does not function as written in the manual
Other:
A quite solid remote. I had luck figuring out how to list the codes it had found during automatic search (SET+numeric keys), and it works almost perfectly with my amp.
Bottomline:
A good candidate for a remote replacement. The one I replaced is retailing at about $70, so the price tag on this one was welcome. Recommended to the buyer who has the patience to figure out the engrish (look it up) manual.
