Slow Go!!

John M., Newegg
23 December 2009
  • Summary: This would be a great product if the software worked.
  • Pros: It will work Sometimes.
  • Cons: It takes forever to program with their software. If you loose (or dont have) internet connection guess what your out of luck. And Customer service is not in this country.

Great Remote

Brad P., Newegg
2 December 2009
  • Summary: I have a very new TV and was very surprised that this remote was able find codes for some of the more advanced features that the tv has. Overall, very pleased with the remote. User tech level may need to be a bit higher than you average Wally World universal remote, but worth while if you have the...
  • Pros: Controls multiple devices, accesses more functions than I expected with an after market remote. Lightweight, cool design. Great looking menu driven LCD screen.
  • Cons: Haven't been able to program for my Aiwa 5 disc CD changer. It asked if I had the orighinal remote, unfortunately I don't. Have yet to call customer support. Not too worried, I don't listen to many CD's

Great Remote

Kurt L., Newegg
29 November 2009
  • Summary: If you have a PS3 - you need another device since the PS3 is bluetooth. I got the Nyco BluWave remote for $20. I don't need the remote - just the PS3 adapter which is an IR adapter. Then the Harmony remotes and do most operations on the PS3 (cannot Power on though).
  • Pros: It's awesome having just one remote to control all my devices! This really makes it easier for the kids and my wife. This remote with one button (Watch TV) will - turn on the TV, set it to the right input, turn on the receiver and put to the right input. Same with Watch Blu-ray, Watch DVD, etc. T...
  • Cons: Some of the buttons could be better - one of them you really have to push hard. Other than that it's awesome.

Disappointing

Anonymous, Newegg
24 November 2009
  • Summary: Apparently I was under the wrong impression when purchasing this remote. I simply wanted to replace an old TV remote and thought this would be more than sufficient, and have the benefit of being able to download commands from the internet instead of using an old remote (since the old one was...
  • Pros: Looks nice, bright back-light, nice weight and feel.
  • Cons: Have to use Activities to turn devices on, unnecessarily complicated and simplistic at the same time.

Great Remote

20 November 2009
  • Summary: Glad I didn't read some of these reviews before I purchased mine. I got mine well over 2 years ago at walmart. Simply the best remote I have ever owned. Recently installed windows 7 and had to get latest software. No problem, it installed fine.
  • Pros: Price, options, dependability.
  • Cons: NONE

Logitech Harmony 520 Universal Infrared Remote Control

Roy S., Newegg
19 November 2009
  • Summary: I have had a lot of universal remote controls in my time and this is by far the best remote! I had this up and running exactly the way I wanted in under 30 minutes. Normally I would have had to spend hours customizing a typical universal remote to work the way I want it to.
  • Pros: Super easy setup, super bright (non visible) IR doesn't have to be pointed directly at devices. It just simply works like a universal remote should! Online database is amazing and makes setting this thing up a breeze, can customize buttons, menus, and name them to anything you want on the display...
  • Cons: Small buttons but even that isn't much of an issue.

User Review

Patrick C., Newegg
19 November 2009
  • Summary: The price has come down since I bought mine. I do not have this model, but a similar one with an X-box theme
  • Pros: It works well once you've set it up. You can get it do most anything you want. Your profile is saved on their site. It should be easy to replace the device and restore your programming
  • Cons: You have to connect to their site and use their Windows only software on to program it. A slow internet connection will make it more painful. It's hard to make a truly custom setup. They've tried to make it easy for non-techies to program it - and made it difficult for those who know what they wa...

Wonderful and inexpensive starter Harmony

Peter M., Newegg
19 November 2009
  • Summary: Heh. If you accidentally put one of the batteries in backwards, the batteries will explode, hurling the remote and battery cover in the air. Don't ask how I know. :-) (The remote still works after I took it apart and scraped battery bits off the mainboard.)
  • Pros: - The number of devices is not limited, unlike some other low-end Harmony's. - This has buttons for Next/Prev Track, unlike some of the more recent models. - It will control any device, and is extremely versatile. - The activity-based model is very powerful, and the fact that it remembers the sta...
  • Cons: While this is certainly easier to set up than say, a Pronto, setup can still be tricky and there are some quirks in the process: - You have do so some weird things to perform activities where every device isn't remote controllable. For instance, when I want to tell it I want to use my Wii, I have...
