I'm not sure why the negative reviews, I LOVE mine
10 February 2014
Summary: granted it's only been one day of use. I own an 880, 890 and 1000 harmony. My 890's screen died (i'm sure it's due to it falling to the ground so much and it finally lost the battle, lol#... Setup was very easy #granted I've gone through 3 setups before). I fired it up, plugged it up to my laptop, it transferred and took all my settings from the 890 which was even better since I didn't have to reprogram everything and I was on my way using it and working it like a pro!
Summary: Once again, Logitech hits it out of the park, raising the bar, as expected, in home-remote control wizardry. The response is unreal. Once you get the positioning of the extender right...it operates flawlessly. My only issue, as minor as it may be: no readily accessible info on how to acquire a 2nd extender.
Summary: I had the 890 previously and did a lot of research on what product I needed to replace that one. The most important thing i read about the touch was that it is great if you want to look down at your remote as you navigate. Definitely not something I want to do. I remote by feel only. So, I skeptically went with the simple remote. The reviews on this site made me a little worried about what I would find.
Summary: Fantastic combination of The Hub, phone and simple remote. Initial setup is tedious. Once setup, it is fantastic. There are few things that should be considered before setting it up. Firstly, the type of signal, RF or IR. If your original remote works on RF signal, then set the "Hub Assignments" under Settings option in myharmony.com to "Hub Only" option.
Summary: I've been using Logitech's Harmony remotes for the past 6 years and have setup countless more for friends/family. The Harmony Smart Control is by far the best one to date. Setup is much easier than previous models and it can all be done with your phone/tablet. Interface is fairly easy to use and the included remote is perfect for most operations. I find it to be much more responsive than the remote that comes with my devices.
Summary: After doing extensive research on all available remotes to replace a remote that had become obsolete I purchased the Harmony Smart Control. I have been using this remote for two weeks now and could not be happier with the system. I use the remote to control all the components in my Home Theater System. This includes a Denon AVR-2807, Toshiba LCD TV, Samsung BD-F5900 Blu Ray, Denon CD Player & Cox Contour Cable DVR.
Summary: This remote setup really is worth the money and it makes controlling all my devices fun. I had everything configured and working seamlessly in about an hour, but it is was time well spent and easy to do. The new ipad app (full screen) really is the icing on the cake.
Summary: I had a Logitech 1000 that finally gave it up (actually I dropped it and the screen broke)......Purchased the Smart Control and within 10 minutes it was configured and working. I was surprised that the software went and copied my configuration file (4 devices and numerous activities) from the web site for the old Logitech remote and just installed it in the Smart Control.
Summary: The Fios Remote that came with the Motorola Set Up Box was never really great, so I finally took a jump and reviewed my entire remote control set up. The idea of being able to control all my entertainment gadgets through a simplified set up was very intriguing. -It worked immediately after the set up which was a piece of cake!
