I am already laughing as I review this value pack of remote controls because as my mom so eloquently used to tell me, "you get what you pay for" and that was definitely the case here! My husband and I were in the market for a universal remote and when shopping in Walmart, found a "value pack" of two remote controls for $14.96 (one remote is slightly smaller than the other and also has less functions than the bigger remote control). For the first remote, my husband had to go through three access codes to finally get the remote to work and with the smaller remote, he had to go through two access codes! I should have known that would have spelled trouble right then and there! The remotes actually do work well but horror of horrors, the remotes do not open either of our DVD players meaning that (oh my!) we have to actually WALK to the DVDs to manually open them and that is why I did not give this a perfect rating!
