Took some time to get used to - it is sensitive. But I liked it.
It is super sensitive to a 3 foot drop onto a carpeted floor. Did that the other day (after just more than three months of owning it) and the thing is now non-functional. The touch pad jammed and none of the buttons worked. Couldn't get it to work so tried to take it apart to see why it was jammed: good luck with that. [Figured why not? What's the use of returning it? It's not covered under any warranty for drops, I presume.]
Now I've got six pieces of worthless remote.
So, while it was functional before the drop and I really liked it, I can't see myself having to replace it every time it falls off the arm rest of the couch.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MichaelCTzell Thanks guys
I have had the TV for 2 weeks and its great , but for the life of me I cant grasp what in the world this slide remote makes easier. Now I don't feel so bad not really spending time trying to figure it out.
Again TV is great but would have rather just had 1 backlit remote than the cheapie main remote and this small slide remote which does not seem to float anyone's boat

Rated 2 out of 5 by Rick202 Not the best purchase ever
Not very easy to use for a smart tv remote, it needs to be upgraded to a pointing device to make it easier to navigate

Rated 2 out of 5 by Okraig Not customizable
It's fine remote if: 1. You control your volume only by the TV, no receiver/amplifier. 2. You control channels through the TV only, no cable or satellite box.
These functions are usually provided by an amplifier and cable box, NOT the TV. Because this remote is not customizable to make it work with other (even Sony!# components, it's usefulness if severely limited. It's just not possible to integrate it into a good system like this TV deserves. Poor performance, Sony...you definitely need more integration #for example, why can't I program the remote for my SONY Amplifier/receiver or my DIrectv box!
A good piece of hardware made almost useless by poor programming.

Rated 1 out of 5 by EQUINOX Not very pleased.
I'm not very pleased with it because it seems like sony tried to put too much into one device and it's way too sensitive.

I've read reviews stating this remote is on the fragile side. One said a single fall on a carpeted floor killed his. I believe it. It showed up from SONY in a bubble padded envelope via USPS. Looks fine. Have tried three new batteries. The directions on the menu screen were followed to the letter by several different people several times. No luck.
