3 out of 5 eggsNewegg Not Authorized Dealer

Pros: Learning capability, RF capability.

Cons: No IR update ability!

Other Thoughts: Please heed all warnings when considering whether or not to buy this remote. NewEgg is not an Authorized Dealer for URC. What does this mean to you? This means that all of your new equipment (and future equipment) will not have the codes for your equipment, and you cannot get the new codes either. Please safe yourself a lot of headaches, buy Harmony. Why pay this much money for a remote when URC wants you to pay a professional to come over and program it for you?

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Nice range, works well and looks sweet, especially the backlight. Easy to program as all of the regular MX series are.

Cons: I just went to the website, and cannot find the software required to program it, luckily, I have copies from before they took it away...

Other Thoughts: Works awesome. Great remote. If your equipment is far away, go with the MRF-350 RF reciever base and a RFX-150 as an antenna extender (if wire isn't long enough, simply use some cat5).

2 out of 5 eggsNo more software updates

Pros: A great remote. It is easy to program and the remote can be made to do very powerful things via that programming. I have installed several of these for myself, family and friends.

Cons: HOWEVER -- Be aware that the manufacturer, Universal Remote, has decided to no longer distribute updates for the programming software to consumers -- only professional installers.

So... programming these remotes will become much more tedious now that no infrared database updates will be made available to consumers -- you'll have to "Learn" every new infrared code you want to program.
