Rated 2 out of 5 by Betsy Difficult to use While it is necessary to use this remote to operate my TV, it is the most inconvenient remote I have ever used June 24, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Dennis1000 Worst TV remote design ever The "magic" pointer is a terrible idea. Excruciatingly slow to respond (ten seconds for the "home" button!!), imprecise, and ergonomically horrible. I thought I'd get used to it. Wrong! This would make me buy a different TV brand next time. And one fall to the floor from an end table broke the tiny molded latch in the battery cover, so now it will forever (?) live with a piece of tape holding it closed. A gimmick that sours the LG experience. LG should offer a keypad remote exchange at no charge. Thankfully, I can control most of my TV use with my cable box remote. May 24, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Greeneyes My least favorite remote of all time! I absolutely detest this remote. It is very smooth to the touch but that combined with the highly sculpted triangular structure means it doesn't stay put. In fact, it only rests on it's side so one must physically pick it up to use it. It slides out of sight constantly and when it is moved in even the slightest way, the pointer appears on screen. Yes, as others have noted, it is a cat magnet because of that constantly appearing and wandering pointer. The pointer fades out so quickly that after just a few seconds it is gone and you must then shake the remote to get it back. Even worse, many times I am pointing the remote at a 90 degree angle AWAY from the TV. Why, I have no idea and it's quite a struggle to get it back to a usable position. The pointer is so difficult to use that doing a search is a 3 minute operation most times. I find myself constantly pressing the Mute button instead of the Wheel. The navigation buttons just don't seem to work. I have no idea what the issue there is but it all adds up to a totally frustrating experience. I'm REALLY HOPING I can find a replacement that will work with my LG TV. Oh, and the "Recommendation" reason for the purchase refers to the salesman at the store. Also note that the remote came with the TV and the TV was the primary purchase. Had I known at the time of purchase that this remote would be so very difficult to use, I most definitely would have made a different TV choice! December 21, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by doods2213 needs improvement I expected something more on this remote.but nothing very frustrating. December 14, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by TJ D. LG Mouse Remote I would not recommend the mouse remote control. Its difficult to use and the wheel on my first one broke just by pushing the button. The concept is cool, but the actual product is not practical. September 1, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by jj87 Can't use without battery case If you have pets, they may try to jump on the screen to get the cursor which is a little annoying. The battery closure broke off and now I can't use the remote unless I hold the battery case closed with one hand and shake the remote in my other hand. Very frustrating August 31, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by MereJoy expected more I expected more from this device.The main purpose I bought it was for quickness when typing in searches, however I found when I try to use this device to search a show to schedule to record the device does not work in that screen. June 29, 2014
