Summary: I purchased this remote 4 years ago when I got my first HD tv. I loved it and it finally kicked the bucket about 2 months ago. I abused it pretty much.. went through 2 moves and a divorce. It was only $80 at that time. And that wasn't some special sale, that was EVERYWHERE. Save your money and get a different remote.. or find it from somewhere else. Amazon, this is the first time you've ever disappointed me.
Summary: Easy to setup and use, this Harmony remote may well be one of the best universal remotes to date. Guys, this will be the best electronic gift your wife will actually thank you for (this and a TiVo)! This specific version has a few extra buttons to help simplify interactions with an Xbox 360. Also, it feels great in your hand; it fits nicely, is well-balanced and the arrangement of the buttons is highly functional as well as beautiful.
XBox 360 Integration is not worth it, AVOID THIS PURCHASE!

Summary: Let me preface this by saying I never write reviews, but I thought it would be a huge disservice to my fellow Amazonian shoppers to not speak out about this product. First of all, don't buy this product. Much like yourself, I read reviews for products before purchase and solely base my decision on what the consumer has to say versus any description a company writes about their product. It was the summer of 2009.
Summary: Logitech makes superior products and the ones that I own have performed well over time, except for this remote. After four years of use, buttons that control DVD playback have failed. It is a physical problem . . . the contacts under the buttons started to lose connection and slowly deteriorated to make the unit useless.
Pros: Very easy to configure, the help feature makes it easy to deal with your mistakes, glowing buttons are useful in changing light conditions
Cons: The screen is incredibly fragile. I have now had two remotes, and both have had the screen broken within less than a month of purchase. Although I have 4 teenagers, I find it hard to believe that the design didn't account for some rough handling.
Pros: Easy to set up, just be sure to have the name and model number of all your devices you want to control before you start. I like the back-lit controls. Controls make sense and all are easy to access..
Cons: I can't think of anything that I don't like about it.
"Nice remote but does not play well with Sony LCD TVs."

Pros: Convenient, well organized, I especially like the "activity" macros.
Cons: I had a horrible time with the remote and my Sony LCD TV. Specifically, the input changing function. Customer service was great, but it took going through three levels of customer service to get someone who could make the remote work reliably.
