Ergonomics & Durability

The remote control that ships with the Samsung PN50C550 is the same that came with many 2009 models. Overall, we like the remote because the buttons feel right under your thumb. There's also a handy backlight for using the remote in a dark room.

Button Layout & Use

Most of the buttons are made of a soft rubber material that feels comfortable to the touch. The only exception is the d-pad in the center. For reasons unknown, this control is hard of hard plastic and doesn't light up like the other buttons when the backlight is on.

Programming & Flexibility

The Samsung PN50C550's remote can be used to control other Anynet+ compatible Samsung devices, but it's not a universal remote.
