Pros: Fully controls a large suite of devices. Four total at one time. Highly customizable in an easy to use UI. Most commands can be assigned to buttons with a nice drag and drop wizard.
Cons: Requires a computer to program, even if you are learning a command from the original remote. It repeats signals so some devices will get the command multiple times. This being most unfortunate regarding power toggle. :p
Pros: - Online interface automatically sets up your devices - Solid build quality - Strong IR
Cons: - No "Activities" (the feature that makes a Harmony remote special) - Just a glorified universal remote - Can't set the TV's input for the "Watch TV" button on most TVs, including the two I bought these for, but it depends on your TV model

Pros: Cheap New products are constantly added to the online directory Easy to setup Can re-assign buttons Works with a 12 year old surround sound receiver and a brand new plasma TV EXCELLENT value for the price!!!!!!
Cons: Took a bit of time to learn how to program (only because I don't really feel like watching the tutorial video-- I wanted to watch TV) Because it needs to control EVERYTHING the buttons are kinda crammed.

Pros: Once programmed, the remote works pretty well, there is a noticeable lag when using one of the four programmed buttons.
Cons: Buttons could be better grouped. The signin process is irritating. I have given up on trying to change features on this remote. The remote is not seen on the computer for programming and the site gives very vague solutions to solve the problem.
"The My Devices buttons do not select your Devices!"

Pros: There is one button to select your devices - it's called "TV Input." It is a small black button (among over 50 buttons) and it must be used to select your devices. Then the "My Devices" button associated with the device needs to be pressed to allow the
Cons: The big, flashing My Devices buttons do not select your Devices!
Excerpt: I purchased this remote about a month ago and it has worked wonderfully since I purchased it. I have not had any problems with this remote and it has worked as well as I expected. I purchased this remote for 30 dollars and I believe it was a bit expensive. The price is certainly the only criticism that I have about this remote because everything else has worked perfectly. This remote was very easy to set up and program.
