What We Didn't Like

    The remote control with the HY-048BP uses infrared technology. Some consumers have said that due to this, the remote can be a little sensitive in that you have to be very precise.

    It is possible to adjust the height of this model. However, the base can be a little unstable so this is something worth considering.
