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: I decided to get away from paying cable and to use a over the air broadcast with a Microsoft Media Center computer and Xbox 360's for extenders at the TV's. I decided to purchase 4 of these remotes, one for each TV I have. I purchased them used and they all came in very good condition. Programming them took a little time, but the software makes it easy to do complicated things. One of them has to control the TV, Xbox, and a home theater receiver.
Summary: I purchased this remote about 4 years ago, and it has been a fantastic unit to own. It was extremely well priced back then, I think I paid $50 or so. The screen finally bit it so I figured I'd take a look for a replacement, since it's a discontinued item, how expensive could it be. HOW ARE PEOPLE ASKING $200 OR MORE FOR THIS REMOTE??? Better yet, how can people ask more than $40 for a 4+ year old item? You can buy a much more advanced Harmony remote for $150.
Summary: Here's my order details: Logitech Harmony Xbox 360 Remote Sold by: darrenwoolf2003 Condition: used - like new Quantity: 1 $55.00 each Item subtotal: $55.00 My only complaint is that the remote was not like new. It was dirty and very sticky. It was like the remote lived in some teenagers bedroom and it was stuck in the couch cushions with all the other lost food and sticky items.
Summary: Especially for the price, this is a great little remote. The lack of RF capabilities makes it a little bit of a bummer when you want to stick your xbox in a (well ventilated!) cabinet, but a little creativity with an X10 I/R retransmitter and you're pretty much good to go. For those that don't know, these harmony remotes are KILLER for making a multi-device entertainment solution easy for the whole family to enjoy.
Summary: We have been using this for about a year and a half now. It has seen daily use. Batteries last a good long time and we use the energizer rechargeables and just swap the batteries when they go out. Definitely worth the money and makes things easy. I have noticed a few times that the devices don't respond or don't respond fast enough. I have accidentally blocked the remote from the Xbox360 and it won't turn on. No biggie just turn it on and it resets itself.
Summary: All I can say i that I love Logitech remotes they really do everything, easy to set up programing is simple and I love having multiple activities set up. However I bought this remote a couple of years ago and it was only $50 back then how anyone in their right mind would spend $150+ is crazy. My only other complaint is that they dont last that long. buttons will tend to stick, the writing on the buttons wears off. If you can find at a good price by all means get one.
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.
Summary: I've been struggling to manage my remote situation between the set top box, TV, surround receiver & Xbox 360. This has allowed me to manage all of those with one remote as advertised. It is really customizable allowing you to remap buttons based on the function you want to control.
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.
