I put this deal earlier on in the year, at £120.00. However, thought this price was super! Amazon have a deal on both Xsight remotes. The question is - does it beat harmony one? there seems to be mixed reviews. However, if you want the latest technology - go with the Xsight - newest model out with latest features.

why the negatives? remember it's not about whether you will spend this much on a remote - it's about if it's a good deal! I thought this price makes it a super deal - especially compated to the harmony one?
#2
I can't find it cheaper. :?

£95 for a remote control. Don't care what it can do, it's ridiculous. It's not a hot deal, it's a REMOTE CONTROL people.

You understand you are voting on the price, not what people choose to spend their money on?

Yes, i'm not advising people what to spend their money on. But £95 for a remote control is not a hot deal in my opinion, regardless of what the RRP should be.

cold, spend £5 extra and get a harmony one.

Surely, this site is about 'Hot Deals', i.e. is the deal cheaper than you can find it elsewhere?

People spend close to a £1000 on remotes, because it does what they want and they can afford it. It is not unreasonable for a remote to cost £95, so I don't subscribe to. '....it's ridiculous to spend £95 on a remote....'. I used to have a Phillips Pronto, it was the best £200 I had spent; with the press of a single button, it would turn on my TV, change the AV input, turn on the AV Receiver and the DVD player in the correct order. Trying to do that with four or five remote controls used to be a pain. So for me it was definitely worth every penny.

The Logitech Harmony is probably better; but the OP was posting a deal for this remote; he wasn't espousing the virtues of it against another remote.

If you're spending this much on a remote, you may as well spend an extra £5 and get yourself a Harmony One - these Xsight remotes are so unresponsive.

In response to the post above - I've said that because at £99 the Harmony One is a much better deal.

Maybe because one of the reviews on amazon (presumably not yours?) said "First impressions on opening the packet was it was a bit cheap and cheerful" Add on to that you're spending nearly £100 on what's only a universal remote and that's a pretty good mix for getting negatives.

Not too mention its FUGLY! at least the harmony ones are sexy :-D

Also as one commenter on Amazon states, most of the 5 star "gushing" reviews were posted all on the same day, yet tell you nothing about the devise apart from the obvious. The 'real' reviews are less flattering.

I feel so sorry for you, your life sounded truly awful before you bought a £200 remote control. I'm surprised you made it through those tough times.

Lol, i'm sorry to be sarcastic but you bought something for £200 to save your self less than 1 minute of your time. I understand what HOTUKDEALS is, and yes I suppose compared to what price this remote should be it is a great price I'm just shocked that people spend this much on a control. But judging by the comments back alot of people obviously do, so i'll take back my comments as I was perhaps a bit ignorant. :oops:

Thanks for making me laugh tho :thumbsup:

i got my harmony one for 70 quid last year and its up there with sky + as one of the best gadgets out there
i got every tele dvd etc in our house programed into it soooooo glad i got one :) on the other hand my car cost less than my pc
but i dont laugh at people for paying 20 grand on a new car .
#14
No doubt this is a good price, but compared to the Harmony One which is only slightly more expensive, this remote is poor value.
#15
good deal crap product compared to harmony

I now have images of you sat in a moveable amchair, tended to by robots, much the same as the humans in Wall-E. Thanks for lightening up my day. I can't believe that a remote control attributes for the best £200 you've ever spent, what about the microwave to do the TV dinners?:whistling:

The 5* reviews on Amazon are obvious fakes so it really only gets 2.5*

Cold for me

It was, I was suicidal. I only have Phillips for turning my life around; without that Pronto, I may well have been begging on the streets now. ;-)

It's like most gadgets, until you have it you don't miss it; BUT once you have it, it becomes a pain to go back to the way it used to be. Of all the gadgets I have/had that Pronto was truly the one that I like the most. You take thing like Microwave etc for granted.

I know you are being facetious, but trust me some gadgets are truly remarkable in how they impact on you. With the remote, it wasn't even a time factor; I'd have to locate each remote and sometimes one of them would go walkabout and nobody would know where it was, then you have to fiddle with the each remote to turn each of them on and adjust the inputs; with the Pronto it was always on its Docking Station and only needed a single touch to start whatever devices you needed.

Lol, cheers for the banter. Glad you ain't taking my comments too seriously. You're actually starting to sway me to buy one. :santa:
