Just over three years have passed since we first took a look at Universal Remote's NevoSL, but now the new and improved Nevo Q50 has been taken in by the folks over at Remote Shoppe and tested extensively. In short, the Q50 was widely regarded as a fantastic remote, with a beautiful design, well-constructed button layout and impressive programming feature set. Moreover, the improved battery life and "huge IR library" that's at your disposal sure helped matters, and the only real digs noted were its lack of a tilt-activated backlight, slightly subpar touchscreen resolution and the inability of the NevoStudioPro software to function with the older NevoSL. Of course, with a $699 price tag, this remote certainly isn't for everyone, but if you've been looking for some serious horsepower in a home controller, you owe it to yourself to hit the read link and take a gander.
