And the good news is that not only does the 15-2116 come in under $300, it also comes in under $30! And if you grab one while you can, the 15-2117 version is on "secret" sale for $30 right now too.

While I'm still setting up my MX-700 (working too much, playing too little --- MX-700 is playing!), I already like it A LOT! I got it via mike_src (Surf Remote Control) as an open box (about $240ish). You definitely pay a premium for the MX-700, but what it gets you is FUN! Basically, you use a program on the PC and can learn commands, import MX devices (settings saved and exported from a controlled device), import Pronto CCF file settings, set up macros, etc. It has a plug that hooks out of the computer (I got a USB to serial adapter so I could use it with my laptop) and into the remote. As I learn buttons or do things I want to test, I can then click any button or macro to test the program out. If it isn't exactly right, I make the change right there and do it again...while still a far cry from regular development environments for software programming, it is very simple and intuitive and makes changes a breeze. I cannot speak for the other devices...based on the satisfaction rating, I decided to give the MX-700 open-box a try and so far, I really like it.
