First of all, if your a RU980 owner can you please read the couple of questions at the foot of this post, thank you... WOW! The screen is so much better than the old green screen. Of course its obvious that it will be but until you see the two next to each other you don't fully appreciate it. The old green Pronto looks so faded and washed out now! This thing is amazing. I haven't actually started to learn anything yet as its been charging this afternoon and I've had a couple of things to do. Even when put on the charger I had to smile as the LED's for charging indication are blue, and I'm a sucker for blue LED's lol Going back to the screen it really is very impressive just how clear and bright it is. The 65k colour screen just oozes quality and just about every button/icon on it looks sharp and detailed - and thats just the standard configuration out the box! Another nice touch is you can programme macro functions for any button direct in to the remote which with my old one you couldn't do without the aid of a pc and Pronot Edit as far as I remember. Its slightly wider and longer than the old remote but also thinner and lighter so overall it doesn't feel any bigger. One small niggle is that the remove it from the charger you have to pull it up from the back so it 'un-clips' itself. Thats fine unless you have someone try to pick it up that doesn't know about this! A couple of questions I have though: 1) I have noticed mine rattles(!!) like a small bit of plastic is loose inside but I am wondering if that is a fault or if its something to do with the tilt sensor for auto on when you pick the remote up? If someone could clear that up for me that would be great as if it shouldn't rattle it might need to go back! 2) I have put the latest firmware on it but I can't figure out how to make the hard buttons NOT activate the screen - or make the hard button lights come on! I found the extra set-up menu that appears with the firmware update but regardless of what settings I choose I can't seem to get the hard buttons to light up when pressed or function without turning the screen on? 3) When I connect the remote to my pc to try and download files it says I have connected a USB device that isn't working or supported correctly, then when trying to download actual files it either says the device is not connected or it doesn not support the file format I'm sending it which are just pcf files from remote central. Hmmmmm! Once I have started to create/modify the layout etc I'm sure I'll be even more impressed than I am now. All I can say is now its in my hands I have no regret whatsover in picking one up!
