2 out of 5 eggspriced for experts, functionality for VCR owners

Pros: Wireless hub blasters, bluetooth, touch screen, good form factor all make a compelling experience if you have a simple setup.

Great hardware and specs, which makes the lack of ability to customize and use the remote all the more sad.

Cons: - "Activity" remote -> make sure you know what this means!
- Capable of handling only the most basic of tasks
- Configured via simplistic web application
- Incapable of mid- to advanced functionality like you'd expect in this price range
- short battery life (2-3 days with minor use), though this isn't too problematic
- Perfect for controlling a TV, cable box, and blu ray player - once you add a receiver into the mix this remote is getting out of its league.

Other Thoughts: This is an "activity" remote, which has been highlighted by Logitech's customer support many times during my interaction. If you've programmed remotes to do anything beyond the simple coordination of turning things on and off - you can't do that with the Harmony Ultimate. It's configured via a web interface that offers the level of sophistication of a $25 remote. If you have a receiver in your setup, forget multiples, or pre-amp, amp, etc. I would be careful with this remote - it's designed for very basic functionality, without an option for advanced control, editing, or programming.

1 out of 5 eggsSerious disappointment

Pros: "Hub" is universal control for included RF remote plus all your iThings, all remotes sync with each other to know the status of all devices.

Control system linked to my previous Harmony remote and installed the same control system.

My previous Harmony remote was getting a little long in the tooth, so this looked like the perfect replacement, plus I bought a second one to install for a client.

Cons: If only it worked. The requirement to install (a particular, out of date?) version of Silverlight on my Mac was only the beginning of the nightmare this product is.

The "hub" locked up a couple of times and stopped responding.

The "Watch TiVo" button on the remote no longer does anything. If I use an iThing to start the TiVo activity, none of the TiVo functions work, though the IR Receive LED on the TiVo flashes.

This is so bad and so unusable that I'm returning both of them, and looking for either a different (low-end, IR-only) Harmony remote or another brand.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat basis

Pros: Remote is well laid out (from a button perspective). Has all of the common buttons for virtually any device. The size of the remote is excellent, regardless of hand size.

Keeps track of what is on vs. off, etc. This is also a negative if another remote is used to turn something off or on.

The list of supported devices is gigantic.

IR blasters work very well and are consistent. Hub and blasters are not a visual distraction.

Vibration feedback is helpful.

Cons: Despite a fascinatingly long list of supported devices, the support for some of the more "exotic" and even regular devices is limited. One example is Meridian (CD player).

Position of buttons can sometimes be awkward. ie: stretching and positioning hand and finger from standard holding position to push play towards the top. Suspect that the little bit of added total circumference around the remote vs. a device's factory remote (circumference) is the issue.

The biggest issue and the reason for the low rating is the *PROGRAMMING SOFTWARE*. I can't complain loud enough about this. The software is abysmal. The only way you can program the remote is through the web browser. While this is very interesting in concept, it’s real world execution does match. Among other issues, it has serious issues if a proxy is required - this should *not* be an issue. Furthermore, the error messages from the programming software are poor - at best. It’s highly agitating to spend a lot of time working up a configuration, only to send it to the remote and have no idea *WHY* it couldn’t program the remote. There should be at least some information to express that there was a conflict and what that conflict was between. Instead, you have to wipe the configuration and start over.

While it appears that there is “some” documentation for the product, most of the information ends up in the forums. This may not necessarily be a bad thing, but when you are reviewing the forums (looking for answers) and you constantly see the answer being the “fix” button… Also, re-creating an account to “fix” an issue is unrealistic. Given the duration that this device has been on the market and the number of times it’s been suggested as the solution in the forums - there should be something you can click to “reset” your account, this is poor design. Obviously, product management isn’t reviewing the issues posted in the forums to determine what should be addressed to make it a “better” product.

After over 12 hours of playing and testing: appears to have an issue if you want both automated setups (tap a screen button to automatically turn on/off, change inputs, etc.) and have the WiFi enabled for use by other devices (tablets, phone, etc.). This consistently results in a failure to program and the error messages appear to be useless. As a result, running without the WiFi functionality for other devices - unfortunately.

In a couple weeks, will try again to see if Logitech resolved this issue. At this price point, it is highly frustrating to spend a lot of time with limited success. Would have been willing to spend 50% more if the programming worked every time without issue.

Battery life is particularly short, despite what one would consider "light" usage. You'll find yourself putting it in the charging cradle regularly to avoid being without it.

Remote does not appear to work with the IR port on current generation Mac Mini devices running Mavericks.

Other Thoughts: If your TV/receiver/device automatically turns off after a period of time, you *HAVE* to remember that the remote still thinks that everything is in the prior state. So you'd have to "turn off" the devices via the remote before you can "turn on" and use. Annoying, but understood.

- The favorites list on the tap screen is quite nice. Makes it very easy to scroll and locate a channel.

- IR Blasters: Position of them just needs to be approximate. Strongly recommend that those who obtain this unit, select only the IR blaster that is needed to control a given device. This avoids potential for interference from other blasters when controlling a specific device.

- You are likely to find that with most DVRs (Satellite, Cable, etc.) that you will need to change the timing between transmitted inputs as well as reduce the number of transmissions. By default, the remote will automatically send the same entry 3 times. So if you want to send the number "3", it sends it multiple times to ensure that the device receives it. Unfortunately, it causes a single "3" to be entered at least 2 times. The default should have been "send once" and allow the user to increase as required.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Ultimate Remote by Danny Blanco

Pros: The only remote of its kind below one thousand dollars that is Wifi enabled and pairs together with a wireless Hub that transmits signals to devices that may be even stuck inside a close behind a solid C Block wall like in the case of my house. I bought this unit to rpelace an old and disfunctional AR remote that did not not have and Android app support and did not allow me to fast forward songs from within the Pandora screen of an iPod sitting a Denon Dock. Logitech Harmony Ultimate does it all!

Cons: none so far....

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: Easy to setup and use. The remote has excellent distance. Controls everything in my A/V setup that has an IR receiver.

Cons: Does not seem to work with my Sonos setup. I was hoping it would but didn't expect it to do so.

3 out of 5 eggsClose, but not perfect

Pros: I love the web programming feature of this system. It is much better than with earlier versions. The phone/tablet ability is cute, but cumbersome. Most people will prefer the remote to using a tablet. The rf link to a hub, and then an IR blaster solves a lot of aiming and sensitivity problems.

Cons: But the touch screen is the Achilles heel. It will select when you want to slide, slide when you want to select, do nothing when you want to do something, and do something when you want to do nothing!! You have to concentrate when you want to use it, and who wants to concentrate on the remote when you are cuddling in front of an entertainment system.
There are other weaknesses. If you have two cable boxes, you still only get one set of favorites (for one of the boxes). If you manually add a favorite, the channel number you add shows up twice, but the label doesn't show at all (example: add channel 220, CSPAN. The number 220 shows up both inside and below the icon. The label, CSPAN, doesn't show up at all!)
My wife didn't like the remote, so I bought a second, Smart Control. I could not program it to the same hub as the Ultimate, but had to add a second hub and second IR blaster for her to use. Works, but awkwardly.

Other Thoughts: The concept for the Ultimate with the user interface of the older model 880 would be a great combination. THAT's what I wish I had.

5 out of 5 eggsa must buy but you need basic skills

Pros: the remote works just perfect it has it flaws but you must have basic knowledge to work around them. the hub and ir blaster are just great. it's Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to control almost everything that you have.

Cons: the price but hey they are more expensive remotes that required professional setup so stop complaining about price.

Other Thoughts: i have never use the help button so if you do then you need help because you are slow sorry. if you want to mount the hub to the wall then you need to look into mountable quick ties.

3 out of 5 eggsTired of having to press HELP to get job done

Pros: The new features and touch screen are very nice. I like the favorites.

Cons: I'm not gonna talk about the pros much as people with positive feedback else where have already pointed them out. I don't write reviews much but I've owned 3 Harmony remotes now. Harmony One, 900 and now the Ultimate.

There is a problem with these remotes that has never been fixed. I'm tired of it and I can't beleive to this day it continues.

Switching actives doesn't always do the proper task and I am forced to use HELP to fix the problem. Now HELP does fix the problem almost every single time. But I shouldn't have to do that unless I did something manually and I just want to quickly fix it. Let me explain my hang ups.

If you have a activity for say your Apple TV and you want to switch to lets say your Xbox 360. The remote will randomly decide if:

a) It turns on the previous activity before switching to the new activity.

b) Switching to the right HDMI connection when you select the new activity.

I don't like to abuse power. If I am not using the Apple TV anymore the remote should turn it off everytime I switch to a new activity. Sometimes the remote turns on the activity, sometimes it does not.

Other times when everything is powered off and I am starting an activity for the first time when the remote powers everything on it does not switch the HDMI source to the new activity. Instead it sits on the previous activity.

Why do I need to hit HELP to fix these issues? Why does HELP fix it everytime but the remote doesn't just do the right thing to begin with? There should be some sort of check system.

Here is something that isn't going to apply to a lot of people. Issues I have with the HUB.

1) I don't like the fact there is a light on the HUB that is either red or green always. I technically don't need the mini blasters because I am using this in a Home Theater room. All my devices are on a media rack flush with the wall. The hub does it's job fine. However I have to use this small mini blaster to hid the HUB just because of the light. When we are watching movies I don't want any sort of lights coming from anywhere other than the picture on the screen.

2) This device should have some sort of keyhole clips like what you see on the back of speakers, etc for hanging the device. If I could do that I could hang this in a area that would be out of the way and get perfect line of sight with all devices. (Every single device on my media rack gets the signal besides the Xbox, which I don't know why it doesn't. It's flush just like the rest of the equipment. But this is probably just my own issue with the sensor on the Xbox).

Other than that I like the remote for what it is. For $350 though I shouldn't be having any of these issues stated above. Someone else mentioned in a review that they do not like the buttons on top of the touch screen area because they hit the touch screen. This was a concern of mine but now that I own it I can confirm this is a not a issue for me whatsoever.
