    Even talking at length to the manufacturer I was unable to get the unit to work with my cable box and TV. You folks agreed to credit my charge account and allowed me to return it. Nice service, courteous, no hassle. Greatly appreciated.
    JAMES VAN -- warwick, RI   5/29/2007
    works fine
    SANDRA -- shelburne county, NS   2/8/2007
    I was very satisfied with your product.
    JOHN -- cary, NC   2/8/2007
    This thing is really big. My father in law had a stroke and I thought this would be good- he likes it and never has trouble finding it.
    RICK -- rockford, IL   1/23/2007
    Great!!!! I bought 2...
    ELIZABETH -- lexington, MA   1/13/2007
    This was a gift for my aging parents. They laughed when they saw the size of it, but they are grateful to have it.
    JOYCE -- schulenburg, TX   1/5/2007
    Great - it was a gift for my elderly father who always complained the remote buttons were too small and he kept loosing the remote itself. He seems to be enjoying the large remote. It is also great since we just found out my mother has macular degeneration (early stages). It will be useful to her also in the future.
    CONSTANCE -- smithtown, NY   9/29/2006
    Actually, a little too large to hold in one hand and a little cumbersome for 2 hands. but the button size is great
    BEVERLY -- belton, TX   8/28/2006
    I bought this for my father-in-law who has macular degeneration, so needed something very big. He said it worked very well. We enjoy it, also, because it is hard to lose!
    JAY L -- south lake tahoe, CA   6/7/2006
    We had to return 1 remote as it was not compatible with a Visio tv
    PATRICIA -- north ridgeville, OH   2/21/2006
    It was everything that was promised. I am very satisfied. It was the perfect gift for my mom who is legally blind.
    BARBARA -- marshalltown, IA   2/20/2006
    Looks like what I want. It is a gift for a legally blind person which has not yet been given. It is great to find an item like this is available.
    ELIZABETH -- jackson, MS   1/12/2006
    The remote was well described and met the purpose for which it was ordered. Thank you.
    MERRY LYNN -- walnut creek, OH   1/12/2006
    It is very handy to use for an elderly person who does not have good manual dexterity.
    JOAN -- new london, OH   12/21/2005
    It is a Christmas gift for my 78 year old mother. Rather big, but I wouldn't mind one of my own if I could afford another !! Neat item. I see many helpful items on your web page we can use for our own home. Will have to wait until after Christmas.
    SHELLY -- houston, TX   12/17/2005
    Ordered for my grandmother with macular degeneration - she loves it.
    NORMA -- jena, LA   12/3/2005
    I bought this for my Great-Aunt who has failing eyesight. It is helping her to continue to "listen" to TV even if she can't see it. Thanks
    DIANE -- madison, WI   11/30/2005
    My 94 year old mother loves her Big Remote. Many other residents at her assisted living facility have expressed an interest in them.
    BETTY -- boise, ID   11/16/2005
    It's exactly what I have been needing. Thanks so much.
    GEORGETTE -- edison, NJ   12/27/2004
