Woot’s $5 Universal Remote Includes Channel Icons
Julie Jacobson · October 23, 2008

If you bought that $600 Planar projector on Woot! a few weeks ago, now you have a low-cost remote to go with it.

The Philips SRU4105 Icon 5 Device Universal Remote is on sale today at Woot! for the incredibly low, low price of $5 (plus $5 for shipping).

The universal learning remote lets you program up to 10 buttons with your favorite channels ... and label them with the appropriate icon.

And it’s so easy to do. Simply “place a sticker of the channel icon next to the button.”
