I purchased this remote for my 84 year old mother-in-law, who is sight impaired, mobility impaired and has trouble grasping many new technologies. The remote that came with the new 46" HD TV (which is the first TV she's been able to see for years) was far beyond her. This remote paired with the TV in moments, and she was able to understand it, find the right buttons and make it work. This remote will not work with a digital box from your cable company, so if that's what you have to use in your areas, don't buy it. Also, the lights on the right hand panel died about a month in, but the remote still works fine.
