Rated 5 out of 5 by jontul Much better than the standard Remote
Even though my latest LG 2015 Smart TV doesn't have WebOS and came with a standard remote, upgrading to the Magic Remote (purchased along with the USB dongle) really improved the experience. The Magic features all work almost like they do with my other LG Smart TV that does have WebOS. It's great to have fewer buttons and I can operate this remote without looking just by knowing where the primary buttons are located. They are textured for ease of access.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Platypus HORRENDOUS, HORRIBLE Remote
This remote is horrendous.
Style over substance.
It's philosophy seems to have been, lets get rid of all buttons and then get users to use the "magic". The mouse like functionality. Which is worse on a big TV as everything takes so much longer...
So, for example, to change inputs you need to press the Input button, then navigate to a "virtual remote" (black# that sits in the corner of the screen, then press the virtual Input button which finally launches the real input screen #white) which then lets you move the cursor to your HDMI inputs, etc and then finally you can press OK.
Are you kidding me?
How about just having an Input button on the remote?
Likewise with all the other commonly used functions such as:
1. Changing Channels
2. Seeing list of channels
So everything takes A LOT longer with more mouse clicks and menu selections.
And the "mouse" functionality is not good. It's jerky/wobbles. The buttons are too small on the screen. So it's very hard to quickly and easily click on a button on the screen,
The HCI here is just plain dumb.
And you can see that in next year's model: AN-MR600, with it's slogan "Spend Less Time Navigating"
With the AN-MR600 it seems they have addressed most of this remote's horrendousness:
1. Numeric buttons
2. Input button
3. Caption button
4. And a lot more buttons
I am hoping the AN-MR600 will work with my newly bought 79" UB7900 LG TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 Awesome remote
I bought a display tv and they lost the remote. I ordered this one from the LG website and it came in a very short time. The tv and the remote linked automatically which was awesome! I thought I would've had to do something through a program. Remote works great!

Packed with features. Easy to use and sync to TV, cable box and sound bar. Eliminate the need for three remotes.

This is one LG product I'm not happy with.
it will not pair with my cable box. I called customer service and got a lady that told me it was not supposed to.
then I emailed LG and they sent instructions to pair it..but at the end of their instructions they said it doesn't work with all cable boxes.
So now I have added to my collection of useless remotes

Rated 5 out of 5 by CrazyTrucker This remote works very well
It is so much easier to utilize the features of the tv using this remote than the one that came stock with the tv. A major time saver as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by duwop54 Smart, very smart.
This remote has everything you could want to make navigating your smart set easy. Voice control and the scroll wheel make internet access easy. Operate all your devices from this single control and eliminate those extra remotes. Great product, great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rjbigs Love using to watch U tube on the big screen TV
When I'm connected to my WiFi I can relax in a recliner and watch special U Tube presentations on my smart LG big screen TV and great sound with my wife rather than on my small computer screen.
