Good remote for the price – TV Remote Controller Black Reviews

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

Pros:
- Works with my Philips 17PT1563/11 TV (L7.2E chassis) - Build quality is OK, comparable to stock remotes of devices currently sold
Cons:
- Supports a lot of chinese domestic brands, but some more common european manufacturers missing (eg. Telefunken, Grundig). These might work with the "Other brand" codes, but I haven't tested. - Button layout isn't the best one available, for example the volume and channel selectors are near the bottom and not in the center of the remote where they would be easier to use, in my opinion. - AA batteries, most other remotes have AAA today, this is of course just a matter of taste.
Other:
Bottomline:
It's a decent replacement for the stock TV remote, if your TV brand happens to be supported.
