Not necessarily kids ... kids who can't read yet, learn the symbols easily.

But my biggest issue with the mx900 is that it only has 6 programmable buttons, and the mx950 is too expensive.

I also think the buttons are better spaced out and differentiated on the 800/850. The 900/950 would be drastically improved if they'd kept REW AND FF to the sides of the thumbpad.

Skip forward and Skip back are nice additions but they use up prime real estate on the remote, and are primarily used on DVRs. I have them programmed on the lower right side of the programmable buttons of the MX-850, so I can still find them by feel - and - they only use up space on my DVR screens.

What would be cool is if tapping FF/REW sent a Skip FWD/BACK, and holding them down did FF/REW, but a hold down macro would always send a skip first ...
