I’ve often been tempted to upgrade my TV remotes to something more worthy of a guy who writes about gadgets all day but unfortunately they’re the rare devices in my home that don’t get a lot of TLC. And every few months when they inevitably need to be replaced I choose a cheap Sony universal remote which is why I’m particularly excited to see these new low-end models being released.
The RM-PZ1FD, RM-PZ1SD and RM-PZ1D come in 3 distinct styles and besides being water resistant the remotes also use a three infrared LED system allowing them to be used in a wider angle around your TV. I’m particularly fond of the wide layout used on the RM-PZ1FD model but unfortunately it seems like these new remotes are only destined for the Japanese market at the moment.
