I've narrow my remote search down to the HTMaster MX-500 and the Sony RM-AV3000. At first I was planning on getting the sony remote because how cool it looked with the big LCD, and the high tech look. But after reading about how happy people are with the MX-500 and how easy it is to use, I m really confuse as to which I should pick. Also, the MX-500 has been out since 2001, will there be a replacement soon? Please help me make a decision, should I a) Buy the Sony because I like the the way it looked, and people would compliment on how cool my remote is. or b) Get the MX-500 because I think hard buttons are easier to use and because of all the good review I've read & wouldn't mind having it. Let me know what you think, Thanks in advance.
