4 out of 5 eggsGood Remote

Pros: As far as compatability, I have had no troubles. Hooking up a 7 year old top of the line Yamaha Receiver all the way up to a new Samsung LED TV and Blu Ray player were all easy. Very convenient for the DVD player apps, especially Pandora.

RF works well with all my equipment locked away in a closet that's about 20 feet away. And IR works well with the TV.

Cons: Not the most durable design. After the one and only drop, the screen cracked. And now a year later, the rubber coating on the back of the remote is almost completely worn off.

Other Thoughts: Customer service was fantastic when I needed them for my old Harmony.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat but not perfect

Pros: When you get it set up it is fantastic

Cons: The software has to contact Logitech to even make small changes. Their server are atrocious and simple tasks can take an hour due to constant network time-outs. Also can be difficult to resolve issues when multiple devices are used and the power on/off command doesn't control all the devices, especially since the power commends are often buried several pages into the list of commands. Why not put this on the first page by default?

1 out of 5 eggsI hate this thing!

Pros: It can handle all your devices and the Windows app takes care of setting them up for you. Pretty handy.
---------
CONS START HERE:
1. when they battery is low, the buttons will not work until you acknowledge that the battery is low, which requires you to position your hand awkwardly to get your thumb up to the touch screen and hit "OK"
2. when the battery is low, it will annoy you every 5 minutes, requiring you to repeat step 1 nearly every time you want to adjust the volume, pause, unpause, etc during a 2 hour movie, which usually ends up being a few times
3. the battery is "low" at about 20%, meaning it still has enough charge for another 2-3 days of use (in my experience), so why does it incessantly nag you to recharge it right then?
4. the response to button presses is very slow. It has about 1 second of lag from when you press the button to when the volume starts adjusting

Cons: 5. this 1 second of lag exists when lifting your hand off the button as well, so if you press and hold you have to "anticipate" when you actually want it to stop about a second in advance, to get the right volume
6. tapping the button several times to adjust the volume a tad higher/lower is also very laggy. If you tap it 5x it sends one "volume down" press every second or so, so you have to hold your arm out 5 seconds for it to adjust
7. the problem in #6 also exists when sending multiple button presses via programming, such as navigating through the Xbox360 user interface to Netflix. You can tell it to press the buttons with 0 milliseconds delay between presses, with 250ms delay, with 500ms delay, 1 second delay, etc; but the delay is always ~1 second per button action, so the entire procedure of turning on the TV, turning on the audio receiver, setting audio receiver to correct input, setting TV to correct input, turning on subwoofer, turning on Xbox360, navigating through Xbox360,

Other Thoughts: to select netflix, and selecting netflix, takes about a minute. It's certainly handier than doing all this by hand, I will give it that, but it takes a whole minute, when I can do the same process by hand in 20 seconds. On the bright side it gives you time to go pour a beer of choice.


#1, 2, 5, and 6 are the most frustrating and make me want to chuck the remote out the window on a daily basis. For ~$XXX, I expected much more.

The best way to describe it is like using the slowest/most annoying cable TV/Satellite Tuner box you've ever used-- the one where scrolling through the channel guide and selecting a channel happens about 1-2 seconds after you press the button on the remote-- and imagine paying $XXX for the privilege to use it again. No thanks.

2 out of 5 eggsRemote itself is great

Pros: Programming is anything but easy. If you want just the basic setup then yes it is very easy. But to customize it requires alot of time. Someone with basic knowledge can set this up without any issues. Time you need to put aside at least 4 hours to setup 3 or more devices with all the customized settings. It adds alot of useless options on the main page that you need to remove and put what you want there. The charging cradle is a HUGE HUGE plus. No more misplacment of the remote (by the wife and kids us men dont do that). The design is perfect fits in hand well and very comfortable to hold and use.

Cons: I cannot give this more than 2 eggs for several reasons. THE BIGGEST #1 issue is price. This is easily a 100.00 to 150.00 remote MAX. I have debated several times on returning it for a cheaper model when I first purchased. But after getting the remote setup the way I want it the thought of redoing it is exhausting. I purchased this specifically for my HTPC because I already had 3 remotes that I was using on a daily basis and w/o fail the wife would always misplace one. It is worthless without the RF adapter for devices in a cabinet (this is why it comes with 2 of them) If your looking for a reliable way to control everything go with the 30.00 - 50.00 harmony (depending on needing the lcd or not) and pay the 80.00 for the RF modules (much cheaper way to get what you need and it works without breaking the bank). For the price this remote should have bluetooth option or an available slideout keyboard.

Other Thoughts: I had to purchase the Logitech mini controller (for google tv) also which is what really topped it all off... Now i have a gold mine in remotes because a 300+.00 remote doesnt have any keyboard options.

4 out of 5 eggsNot Mac Compatible

Pros: Easy set up
Works with all my devices
Easy to add and delete devices

Cons: Expensive
Sometimes 'forgets' the Blasters
NOT compatible with newer Macintosh computers

Other Thoughts: I have owned a Harmony 900 remote for two years now and I really like it. I got it because my wife wanted all of our components placed out of sight in a cabinet in the living room, and the RF capability was just the ticket. It controls all of my devices and, if you use the recommended connections on your components, it generally defaults to those when you start the set up. That means that most of the time during set up you are just acknowledging the information that is already there.
It does have a few problems though, and one of these could be a deal breaker for some potential buyers.

In order to set the remote up, you need to run an app on your computer. Here comes the potential deal breaker. The Logitec Harmony Remote Software is not compatible with any Mac running Snow Leopard (OS 10.6), and I have read that it doesn't work with Snow Leopard's successor Lion either. It will let you go in and set everything up the way you want it, but won't update the remote.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat remote, Not great price, Needs Finess in Build Quality

Pros: Computer based programming is easier to control complex situations and activities. Works great for Media Center PC and keeps track of what's on and off very well.

I really like the charging dock and how the remote sits beautifully in there and the RF blaster has nice build quality too.

I'm keeping it, as its functionally the best remote I've owned but I'm disappointed in a lot of little things that could have made this worth its price-tag.

Cons: If I were to guess a price on this remote after using and not knowing the MSRP, I would say $129 tops. Price is too steep for the build quality. Touch screen is not responsive and sits about a 1/4" under the surface.

Buttons feel cheep and require a bit more of a firm press making multiple clicks physically much slower than some of the other remotes I've owned impacting the directional pad the most.

The software for programming is buggy and often takes me 3-5 tries to get my computer to recognize the remote when updating. The program also cannot be resized and has a very small area to work with.

On screen buttons are really only good for switching activities or maybe your top 6 favorite functions. Like others have said, takes a lot of page scrolling on the screen to find device specific buttons. This is customizable but if the hard buttons won't do 90% of what you want them to do, then you won't like this remote IMHO.

Other Thoughts: I wish the screen was bigger, had a higher resolution and had the responsiveness found on most smart phones these days.

I also wish there were more icons for the custom soft buttons (on screen buttons) and that you could change the Custom Activity graphics.

I some times wonder why I got the RF version and over being able to use it room to room which only works for music for me when using multi-zone on my reciever.

Slight button delay in my Media Center with IR but I am able to customize the delay time and hopefully will find a setting that will work.

1 out of 5 eggsQuestonable Quality

Pros: Harmony/s activity based software

Cons: Consistant poor quality.

Other Thoughts: I have had 2 Harmony 680's, 1 700, and 1 650. They all have either went bad, or been rendered useless. The biggest problem with logitech, is that the buttons quit working, even after "normal" use. The 650 is the newest, and it's problem is that it reboots when I put it down sometimes.

I have been a glutten and stuck with logitech, because of it's ability control everything with ease. I perfectly orchestrates the components either to on, or off depending on the activity selected.

However, if another remote manufacturer would rival this feature, I would defect instantly to give it a try

1 out of 5 eggsRemote failed after 14 months

Pros: • It's nice to have one remote

Cons: • It's memory went bad after 14 months, Logitech just suggested I by another one.
• Screen is small and does not offer an innovative approach for controlling multiple devices.

Other Thoughts: I would avoid purchasing this product. It has allot to offer but had a poor warranty for such a high price. The customer service beyond the usual "turn on, turn off" type instructions was terrible.

1 out of 5 eggsWaste of money

Pros: Compatible with many devices and provides a convenient way to control them....if it works as designed.

Cons: I started of with the 890 which never did successfully update. I spent hours on the phone with tech support until they finally shipped me a 900. This remote updated but it freezes constantly. It will hang while starting an application, hang at random times so when you go to adjust the volume it just doesn't work and requires a battery removal reset. This is not worth the money. I could deal with bugs at a 50 price point but not for the amount I paid on this remote.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat purchase

Pros: only need 1 remote, can use with the door closed, turns on everything, east to use, fast setup, feels good in hand, looks good, love the touch screen.

Cons: there is a 1-2 second delay when pushing the buttons but that would be normal for a radio frequenzy remote

Other Thoughts: this is amazing. i have my reciever, dvd player, cable box and ps3 all the closet which is my media center now and have it working off this remote. the door can be closed and it works great. i even have a soundbar in which it controls the volume as well. its a must have and there is nothing wrong. it works and sets up with ease.. no problems...
