So, I am just saying, but if you need to look up a video on how to get the battery cover off this thing before you even use it, then you know it's probably not going to be a super buy. The directions are clear but try and get the battery cover off by doing what it says, is next to impossible. You need something to give you friction between you and the cover if you ever want to get if off the first time. Just the fact that there are youtube videos about it, pretty much supports what I am saying. If you do succeed in putting the batteries in, the setup is easy. I personally don't like taking into a remote but the voice recognition works pretty well. As long as there is not a lot of background noise, that is. Sometimes when you push a button on the remote, it doesn't always work the first time you press it. Weird, but true. I could definitely live without it.
