What Hi-Fi? Verdict

A good idea that lacks a little on the execution front


  • +

    Good energy saver option.

    Looks and feels uninspiring

The Energy Saver consists of the URC-8350 universal learning remote control and HC-8000 Power Plug.

As well as controlling up to four AV devices, the remote can switch a maximum of 14 Power Plugs into power-saving mode.

Setting up is a simple matter of inputting codes from your instruction manuals.

Got a load of kit
It looks and feels pretty uninspiring, but if you've got a load of kit that spends half the day on standby, the Energy Saver is a good option.
