A factory refurbed Pronto TSU1000 for $120.
Yup a used or refurb pronto is easily your best best.
Where can you find a refurbed pronto? How is the reliability? Thanks.
$120 at www.refurbdepot.com however, their reseller rating sucks. I don't know if it's worth the hassle. Otherwise, I would try ebay or audiogon. A friend of mine picked up an open box TSU-2000 for $150 at www.ecost.com They don't always have them in stock though, you have to check periodically. They also have new ones for $200.
This place has the TSU-2000 for $174. Don't know how reliable the vendor is though.
Is this the same model Pronto as I've seen @ Best Buy? I was going to ask the same question as the original poster, because none of my remotes (and I have FOUR) can do all that I need them to do. And my wife is getting pretty tired of handling them all even with our HT being 3 weeks old.
Onkyo TX-SR600 receiver
Panasonic RP-56 DVD Player
Toshiba 50H81 Television
.. and I need a remote that can be programmed to handle it all!
The one at BestBuy is the Pronto Neo TSU-500.
So is it comparable? Any good? Worth having?
The Pronto TSU 2000 is much more versatile than the Neo and you can probably get one for about the same price (maybe less). Having said that the NEO does have a cursor pad which is nice. The 2000 is usually a lot more work to set up and look pretty. For me, I'd get the 2000 - if the hard button cursor is a must, I'd go with something like the Home Theater Master MX-500 (or maybe MX-1000).
FYI: I saw an open box TSU500 at Best Buy for $5 more than the TSU2000 linked above.
I have a Marantz RC5000 (very similar to Pronto) I'm no longer using. Comes with recharger base - worked great but now I've upgraded receiver to same brand as TV, their remotes work fine for me.
If anyone's interested, send e-mail to [email protected]
I'm in GA but could ship it.
You have mail PaulKH. Thanks.
The Neo can't use the extensive database of codes that are available on remotecentral nor can it run any of the software that was written for the pronto like Supernudelist etc.
