Depends what he's going to use it fo

The major issue is that you can't choose channel numbers, so you have to keep going up 1 channel at a time, which becomes frustrating when watching TV

i could be wrong and happy to be corrected but i think you can only change channel by flicking thru the channels one at a time which isn't great

i hear its quite good but you got to get used to the functions... if i remember correctly, this was in the Dragons Den...and they didnt buy in to the gimik. I hear its good but after a while its can become fustrating.

LOOKS GOOD FUN THOUGH

mm i dont know what to get him

I think Peter Jones did buy into this on D.D.,the makers had a patent and had also had another very strong seller in the market for a multi purpose control.

The reviews were very good as it can do multiple devices,but think i'll leave heat alone because of the cost,it could be a steal or an expensive gadget.

Vastly overpriced, especially when they said it cost a tenner to completely manufacture.
Normally you mark up 50%, then retailer marks it up 50% then add VAT, so it should only retail at about £27

saw this on dragons den and my recollection is that they DID buy into it? Im sure I remember them being quite impressed with the two guys who invented it. Could be wrong tho

any one seen it cheaper

When you can get the Logitech Harmony 300 that controls 4 devices, has great support and was available for £9.99 on play.com on monday, why would you even want to go there with it?

missed that one

I seen this in Red5 store in Glasgow. Was a funky wand, and i had a shot of it myself. Really impressive, but personally id have to justify spending that much on a gadget like that.
