    What our Testers Liked
    **This is a home test review posted on behalf of the family who took part.
    The remote was in a cardboard box with the instruction booklet. Easy to access and use.
    What our Testers Disliked
    The batteries were already in the remote. I tried to set up the remote to control my TV but I couldn't work it out.
    The instructions weren't clear and I phoned for assistance several times without success. I was at the point of giving up and take it back when eventually some assistance came to my house and set it up for me.
    What is Interesting
    The remote works brilliantly now, and I can clearly see the buttons. As I am visually impaired, I find this remote much easier to use than the old one.
    My wife who has dementia, doesn't use it . I usually set the program she wants to watch.
    What our Testers Said
    I love this remote control and I have now bought it. It makes watching TV so much easier and pleasurable. I will recommend it, especially if you have sight problems.

    What our Testers Liked
    **This review is a combination of opinions drawn from our testing groups across Scotland.
    Very few buttons make using the remote intuitive and easy. The buttons are also quite large and easy to see and press.
    It's designed ergonomically and it's really smooth, it's a pleasure to handle.
    It's universal, but can't be used in conjunction with Sky TV.
    What our Testers Disliked
    It's not compatible with Sky TV.
    Setting it up was not very straightforward.
    What is Interesting
    it looks different from other remotes, which are usually black or silver.
    What our Testers Said
    I love this remote control!
