      If you don't plan on using a PS3 as a Blu-Ray player in a home theater setup, this would be a decent but overpriced universal learning remote. With the PS3 in the equation, it becomes an exceptional value. The alternative is to purchase a learning remote and a 3rd party IR-Bluetooth converter, at a total cost of at least 50% more (not to mention losing a USB slot on the PS3 to power the converter). So far, I've found codes that work for all devices I've programmed into it, and the learning feature meant I could add the few functions not already pre-programmed. My only complaint is button size and layout. Most of the buttons are small, round and evenly spaced, making it difficult to operate by touch alone. Also, it's odd to have the pause button as the large central playback button and the play button off center above it. Plus, you have to be careful about pressing the PS3 button. It automatically turns the PS3 on, even from another room. Still, it's ideal for my needs and a better solution for integrating the PS3 into a single-remote arrangement than any of the alternatives.

      I had just purchased a PS3 and wanted a remote that would control its blu-ray functions as well as handle the main functions of my other components. This remote does control the PS3 flawlessly, but it falls way short as a universal for other electronics. I have a JVC A/V receiver that I only wanted to control the volume and source selection on. This remote does not work at all for my receiver, neither by code nor in learning mode. I also have a Samsung DLP HDTV and a Denon DVD player that I wanted to control. This remote works well enough on the TV, allowing near full functionality, but it does not work at all for the Denon. None of the codes in the manual or on the website worked for anything. All the functionality that I did wind up with was acquired in learning mode only. While this item is great in concept, it fails to deliver where it really counts...as a universal remote.

        Comments about Smk-link VP3700 Blu-Link Universal Remote Control for PlayStation 3:

        This is a great idea, but the technology is old. Many new devices use a version of IR that isn't supported by the hardware inside this remote. Unfortunately, every Comcast set-top box that I have access to uses the new technology. So, I cannot use this remote to control my television and PS3. All I can do is replace my PS3 remote with this one remote and still use the Comcast remote for my television. This was upsetting because the website lists codes for Comcast - but those are only for Comcast boxes which are not used anymore.

                Works great and learns any functions for remotes that it does't immediately pick up. To get a universal remote anywhere that has the ability to use bluetooth and thus control the PS3 was going to cost upwards of $300. I was skeptical when I was able to order this out of the US to my home taxes etc in for under $50, but it works perfect! Does exactly what it says it will. I would recommend to any PS3 user who wants to control multiple devices including PS3.

                Comments about Smk-link VP3700 Blu-Link Universal Remote Control for PlayStation 3:

                I purchased this to replace my universal remote so that I could have a remote that worked with my PS3 BD. The other option I found was a Logitech Harmony plus PS3 adapter. That would have set me back about $150 as apposed to this remote for about one third of that.

                As a universal remote it is just okay. The buttons are small and do not have a good feel. I like the feel of my conventional universal remote much better - larger buttons and much easier to feel where my thumb is. On the positive side, it does seem to feature most of the features of the until being controlled.

                As a remote for the PS3 BD player it is fine, but I could have just bought the Sony BD remote for PS3 and save about $25.

                Design-wise the small round buttons can wedge under the button's cutout, keeping it pressed. The 1st time this happened to me it took me a while to figure it out.

                  This product isn't flashy or even a new concept but it fits my system and what I wanted to do (or not do; which is use more than one remote).

                  I have the typical 'guys' setup which consists of:

                  HDMI compatible receiver
                  Ps3
                  Moxi DVR
                  LCD TV

                  I wanted to be able to control the Ps3 which acts as my media player also, without having to use the Ps3 game controls to scroll through the menus. The Ps3 setup is very simple since the remote was specifically designed for it. However, I was concerned about my 3rd party DVR (Moxi) which is rare and didn't appear on the list of DVR coded setups. Luckily for me this remote has a learning function and I was able to setup my DVR with it with no problems.
                  The only problem with this remote are that it's buttons are very sensitive which isn't a biggie as there is a certain feel which must be developed between a man and his remote over time. lol
                  I'd recommend this remote to anyone especially since I only paid slightly over $40 for it.

                    I just received this remote. I absolutely love it! It hooked up to my 250gb ps3 slim with no problems like i have read on some reviews on [@] the remote is smaller than i imagined it to be but its honestly the perfect size. It recognized my VIZIO, DVR, SAMSUNG DVD and my Pioneer surround sound with no problems at all. The instructions are very well written and easy to follow, it honestly took 10 minutes to program all my devices and set up some "learning functions". Overall i couldn't be happier! I've had expensive remotes and i honestly like this one more than any other i've had. so worth the [$] bucks!!!

                        This remote would be kind of overpriced if you didn't need the blu tooth functionality for a PS3. I think the manufacturer knows this and they certainly aren't targeting people who just need an IR universal remote.

                        Setup was a breeze, the thing works great with my PS3, the codes for my TV and cable box didn't work perfectly, but the learning feature makes it simple to take care of that. I left the other remotes out for a couple weeks just in case I missed something critical, but now they are safely tucked in a drawer and I only have to worry about one remote.
