Ergonomics & Durability

The remote that ships with the Panasonic TC-P37X2 is perfectly serviceable, but not the most comfortable. The buttons are clearly labeled and easily defined by shape, but you have to push down pretty hard on them to get a response sometimes.

Button Layout & Use

The button layout is smartly grouped, with the menu controls near the top, volume and channel up/down buttons in the center, and 0-9 keys towards the bottom. Importantly, the volume button can easily be distinguished by touch, so when the commercials come screaming on at 2 am, you'll be able to silence them quickly.

Programming & Flexibility

The remote can be used to control select Panasonic AV devices that use the Viera Link system. That's when you'll be able to take advantage of those playback controls at the bottom of the remote. The remote, however, is not universally programmable for other devices.
