"A great universal remote!"

thethiefofalways, CNET
21 December 2009
  • Pros: Eliminates up to 5 remote controls Allows for additional "Activities" outside of the out-of-the-box four it comes set up with. Allows you to establish custom buttons (up to 4) for each "activity." Well back lit.
  • Cons: Small screen that forces you to scroll through many pages of your device's controls. No favorite channel saving.

Logitech Harmony 510 Advanced Universal Remote Control

GuitarHero5223 4, Rate it all!
12 October 2009
  • Summary: Overall, this remote is going to fit the bill. It does what I wanted it to do, which is to control all of my devices. I have a Panasonic VIERA S1 TV, a Scientific Atlanta Explorer 8240HDC cable box (from Time Warner), and an LG LHB953 Home Theater system. Pros: - I only have ONE remote out in the living room and it controls everything! - I setup actions to "Watch a movie" and "Watch TV" so that I can press a single button and voila..

Logitech Harmony 510 Advanced Universal Remote Control

7 October 2009
  • Summary: The device was easy to setup with all of my components. The only drawback is that the number buttons are too small for my fingers. This makes channel surfing difficult compared to my other cable remote.

  • Pros: Blu-ray red, green, yellow and blue buttons, just enough buttons without being too much
  • Cons: Still not as comfortable to hold as normal remotes

So close to perfect!

  • Summary: I replaced my old Home Theater Master control. I loved that remote. The styling was perfect. It fit my hands and the buttons were well sized. And that's what's missing with this unit. The buttons are small and there isn't as much feedback from them as I got from the old remote. Other than that, amazing. I ran into some problems programming it, but I'll just assume it was my fault since it did eventually work.

Better than some of the more expensive remotes in the Harmony lineup

Penfist "Dulce bellum inexpertis", Amazon

  • Summary: I own this remote and another more expensive one in the Logitech Harmony lineup. If you own an Xbox 360, I highly recommend this product. It is an excellent value and well designed from the standpoint of both usability and ergonomics. The lighted keypad is very helpful for viewing in a dark room, and the activities button is a godsend. I use that button to run macros for various things such as watching a DVD movie, watching satellite TV, or playing a game.

best yet for sub $200

  • Summary: The abillity to program any button to preform any action is very useful.Worked every item in the house.Liked that I was able to set it up to work all four tv's in the room as well as the pc and the speaker system for the pc.Set it up for 12 differnt systems and didnt notice any limit to the number ,though there may be one. Nicely ballanced and has a nice "fill".Nice rubber coating on back,very thin but rather small buttons,but looks very nice.

Just what I was looking for.

E. Wertz, Amazon
26 August 2006
  • Summary: I love this remote. I bought my 360 first, and by the time I replaced my NTSC TV with an LCD HDTV and my old stereo with a 5 DVD mini system, I was getting aggravated with the lame remotes that came with all the new gear. My TV remote required 5 button presses to cycle to the component 2 input for the Xbox. What a drag. Now all I have to do is press one button and the Harmony 360 turns on the Xbox, the TV and the mini system, and sets the inputs.

This 360 remote simplified everything.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
9 February 2006
  • Summary: I have 4 things I do with my home theater: Watch TV via Tivo, Watch a DVD, Listen to a music CD and Play on my Xbox 360. Once I set up the harmony I can do all this with one click of a button. If I want to watch TV I press a button and my TV turns on and switches to line 1, my AV receiver turns on a switches to input 1 all automatically.

If your life revolves around the 360...

Bryan Cox, Amazon

  • Summary: then you really should get this remote. As for me, mine does not, but I bought it any way because Ive heard good things about Harmony remotes. This is my first Harmony remote if you havent gathered that yet. I must admit that having this remote allows my fiancee to enjoy the home theatre that I have put together, without this remote she would probably rely on the TV's speakers. Logitech includes the necessary software and USB cable to get you up and rollin'.
