A great looking remote with motion controls
The One for All is a great looking universal remote control with an irritating gimmick. When the hassle of locating a button and pressing it becomes too much, this remote supports a number of motion gestures.
It's a clever idea, but unfortunately the execution was poor. Turning the remote over causes everything to turn off, while nudging it twice causes things to mute. Unfortunately, it's far too easy to accidentally activate these motion controls by moving the remote or plonking it down on the sofa. Thankfully, motion controls can be turned off.
It does look slim and sophisticated, while the buttons are well organised with a useful and pleasing silvery-white backlight. Setting the remote to recognise devices can either be easy or brain-meltingly tedious. We had to resort to entering a number of manual codes to force an older Blu-ray player to recognise the remote, but a newer TV automatically recognised it first time. Up to six different devices can be controlled using the remote.
Despite its problems, this is still a top-quality remote that is perfect for de-cluttering a tech-heavy lounge.

Looks great and works very well, apart from the motion controls which are a gimmick at best.
Good design; backlight; easy to setup on some devices...
...but not so easy on others; gimmicky motion controls
