URC debuted it in their booth at Cedia recently (i didn't go), but it hasn't been released for sale yet.

I've already asked one of my CI customers to bring one to the office when he gets them in stock so i can play with it - i'm very interested in this one ;)

I'm addicted . . . . :D

Check out this picture of the MX-990 on Remote Central. The number buttons are black and not silver. I believe this is how the production models will ship.

I really like the looks of this remote. I'm looking forward to the hands-on reviews once it is released.

This one interests me too.

I like the four buttons with the display and the four color buttons...

We lol will keep an eye on this one. I'm guessing maybe end of Dec early Jan.?

Edit - i moved this post from the MX-780/MX-890 thread to this dedicated MX-990 thread . . . . .

I really like the design of this new MX-990. I'd pick this over the MX-890 based on looks alone. What are the buttons made from (I'm assuming it's the same material as used on the MX-980). Edit: Check out this picture of the MX-990 on Remote Central and compare it to the picture in Randy's post. The remote as shown at Cedia has black buttons. I think the black buttons make the remote even better looking.
My picture is apparently a computer rendering, but your Cedia picture is the real deal. I really like the look of this remote !

It kinda looks like it might be even thinner than the MX-890?

Here's a short YouTube video highlighting the MX-990 at Cedia:

The info tag on the display table indicates that it has an OLED screen (which degrades and goes dim on the MX-780 and R40), but that has to be a mis-print as all other sites say it's LCD (including URC's site).

Says it will be released 4th quarter 2015 and will retail for $549

Ha ha i was going to say the same thing in my post but forgot - i'd like to see the side profile and how wafer-thin it is.

I'm so happy with my MX-890 that i probably wouldn't bother getting the 990, but it would be nice to have all my 8 devices on page 1 of that bigger Main Screen.....

Must....Resist.... :D

It seems like all the functionality is the same as the 980 which I have.
I want to setup some serial commands with it and I believe the 980 is the only that can be used in that way with my MSC-400???

I was previously looking at the MX-1200 and now can't decide between the two other than the fact that this one is much newer.

The MX-1200 is a touch screen vs this one which uses hard buttons next to the display. The MX-1200 offers a lot more flexibility on the screen because you can put the buttons wherever you want as opposed to the 2x4 grid enforced by the MX-990. On the other hand, the hard buttons are easier to press than the touch screen.

To me, unless your MX-980 is no longer working properly I am not sure the upgrade to the MX-990 would be worth it.

I am not sure I am following your MSC-400 comment.

Any remote in the Complete Control lineup can send serial commands via the MSC-400. The MSC-400 is just receiving an RF command from the remote. The 990 is basically an upgraded 980.

I have a 980 that I purchased from SRC right after it came out and it has been a very good remote. But when we completed the HT, I tried an 890 I had picked up and I have to say, I have never looked back. It has all the power I need in terms of variables and If/Then's and the form factor blows the 980 away. It is so much easier to hold and use. The colored buttons will help the 990, but reaching up to those 8 slots is still awkward.

Today's CCP update added the MX-990 to the menu. The release date for the remote must be very close.
