Ergonomics & Durability*(7.0)*


The RCA L40FHD41's remote is short, thick, light, and looks kind of cheap. It fits fine in hand, with rounded edges and good balance. Its case is made of a textured plastic, which helps grip it. Although the remote just looks like it's a poor quality, we don't have any specific durability concerns. What we would've liked, however, was a backlight.

 

Button Layout & Use*(7.0)*


On a base level, the button layout on the L40FHD41's remote is fine. The buttons are all placed in logical positions. The problem is, since there's so few of them, they're spaced out more than we were used to. Even considering this, there's not a lot of grip-shifting required. You'll only need to regrip a small distance each time, but you'll need to do so often.

 

Programming & Flexibility*(0.0)*


This isn't a universal remote. You're stuck using it with just your L40FHD41.
