There are benefits, of course--the VooMote was much easier to set up than the QuantumFx (not least because the QuantumFx came with no documentation or instructions, leaving me to trawl through misspelled and, in one occasion, oddly racist Yahoo! Answers boards), and it can change its form instantly to whatever you'd like. But those don't make up in the day to day for the difficulty in actually using a touchscreen remote--mostly, what I'm doing with my remote is basic things, changing the channel or the volume or swapping between inputs or play/pausing or fast-forwarding/rewinding, and that kind of thing is done more easily and quickly with buttons. Eventually, we're hoping voice control, or even something we haven't thought of yet, will take the place of the venerable clicker. But for the moment, I use this thing.
