Good deal on this remote, and has anyone used it?

    I'm waiting for the new color Prontos to come down several hundred bucks before making my long-term remote purchase, but have been looking at some others for the short-term. Just got an e-mail from CompGeeks with this Sony RM-VL1000 for $47.75. Anyone know anything about it?

    Thanks...

    P.S. I'm NOT affiliated with CompGeeks in any way nor am I trying to generate sales for them. Just genuinely wondering as to whether anyone has firsthand experience with this remote.

    Wow, that may be the lowest price I've ever seen for that remote.

    The remotecentral link above is a good place for info on this product. After doing some research myself, it seems that most people actually regard the remote one step below it, the VL-900, as the better remote. I couldn't find that one on the compgeeks website, but you should be able to get it for a lower price. I got the 900 for Christmas and am very pleased with it.

    Many thanks for the comments and the link to RemoteCentral. Looks like I won't be buying this one.
