They’re excited to sell this device, and it’s easy to see why. The MX-5000 is a wand-style, two-way touchscreen remote control that is the first remote to offer haptic technology. When you press a menu selection on the touchscreen, you get vibrational feedback, so it feels more like pushing a hard button. Beyond this first-of-its-kind feature, the MX-5000’s color touchscreen is sweet, and the overall form factor is way sleek and way thin, not bulky as you might expect. A professional dealer can make this thing positively sing for any lucky home entertainment connoisseur.
CrunchGear was one of many blogs whose antennae perked up when the MX-5000 was announced, so we recently sent CrunchGear’s Matt Burns a review sample. We’re still waiting on Matt’s full review (he just got it) but it speaks to the MX-5000’s allure that he wrote a post just about his unboxing of the MX-5000! We’re looking forward to his impressions of the product.
URC’s ready to rock CEDIA EXPO in September with another noteworthy product announcement or two… stay tuned!
