I bought this because I lost the remote to my DVD player. I got it in pink, they had a bunch of different colors (I think also red and blue but maybe more?). Anyway I had no idea how to set up one of these things and it was so easy -- it comes with a booklet of codes, and you just have to find the one for your make and model, very easy, took about 30 seconds to set it up and it works great. Highly recommended!
I bought this universal remote to replace a broken remote control I had for an old 19" [***] TV. My old remote had nearly the same amount of buttons and features, so this universal remote was a perfect replacement with a great price. And surprisingly the remote worked with my TV as soon as I put in the batteries! I didn't even have to program it (though, this may not be true for everyone). Because this was a "universal" remote, I decided to connect my DVD player from my [electronic game system] to it too. Though after playing around with the remote, I realized that it's very cumbersome to use with DVD players. Some buttons on the remote have two commands and you need to press "shift" to get to the secondary commands. As a previous reviewer mentioned, you'd have to press twice the amount of buttons to do the same thing your DVD remote can do: "shift" "right arrow" "shift" "right arrow" "shift" "right arrow" "shift" "ok". If you're looking for a cheap way to replace a lost or broken remote for a TV, this may be a good fit, but if you're looking for a universal remote, look for one that has more buttons/features or else you'll get what you paid for.
