This remote does what it's supposed to--consolidates 5 of my remotes into one and has the ability to "learn" functions that aren't available through the standard codes. The fully illuminated keypad was a must for me for watching movies in the dark. Hard to find a remote at this price with this feature, so was happy to locate this one. The "learn" function is very easy to setup, which is nice because the stock codes didn't work on my cheap Insignia blue-ray player or for a lot of the features on my Yamaha receiver. With the "learn" feature I was able to get everything to work exactly like all the OEM remotes and it was relatively painless. My only complaint with the remote is the button layout. The play, FF, rewind, stop, pause, etc. buttons are all the same size and shape, plus they're mixed in with 20 other buttons that are all the same shape, size, etc. So...hard to find buttons by "feel." Instead you have to search for each button and read the tiny print that says what each one does. A small complaint, but I've had other remotes that were much more intelligent in the layout. Still...for $20 this is a great value.
