Could be better

Gregory V., Newegg
28 November 2010
  • Pros: One remote allows you to control all your electronics.
  • Cons: Key layout and design could be much better. All playback keys on the unit have the same shape which makes it much harder to find the right button, especially in low light. Keys backlight is not convenient. The unit assumes to let you enter multiple-key combinations but the backlight shuts off rig...

  • Pros: simply awsome remote, I hooked it to my computer told it what equipment i wanted to use it for and hit go, the software did the rest. simple,easy,fast!!!. this thing even controls my western digital media player. it has full function on every piece of equipment i programed it for nothing missing ...
  • Cons: the software that came whith it is only for xp and vista? so i went to logiteh site and downloaded it for windows 7.not a real big con but i thought i would mention it

Out of warranty and dead

Doug A., Newegg
12 November 2010
  • Summary: Part of the premium you pay for these remotes is for build quality, and this is pretty disappointing. I won't be buying another Logitech remote.
  • Pros: Nice remote... while it lasted.
  • Cons: The LCD went blank just after the warranty expired, and without it, it is easier to manually turn everything on and off than to try to use the 550 by trial and error.

  • Pros: works great and replaces 4 remotes
  • Cons: none really especially for the price. If i had known how easy it is to set up i would have spent more and got one with more features.

User Review

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Must be connected to computer in order to 'learn' commands... ? ?? ... Would be nice if it could learn commands w/o having to connect to the computer.
  • Pros: Extremely easy to set up
  • Cons: There is a bit of a delay from when you press a button to when it happens... Also I've used the directional pad to control my ps3, but holding down the button dosn't repeat the button press. large menu's are a bit hard to go through.

Piece of Junk

Cory O., Newegg
21 October 2010
  • Summary: Do not buy recertified/refurbished with limited warraties.
  • Pros: Its a Harmony remote. Anyone that has ever used one will understand why they are so great.
  • Cons: I bought a recertified remote. Only came with 90 day warranty. It worked great for the first couple months. Shortly after that the wife started complaining that it wasnt working right. I initially thought that it was user error because I could never reproduce any problems. About a month ago I sta...

Unreal

Sean N., Newegg
21 October 2010
  • Summary: The instructions don't say anything about the internal motion sensor, which made me thing something was broken inside when I heard it rattling. They also don't mention that the 5-key is intentionally recessed (for easy finding) which made me think it was broken by the previous owner.
  • Pros: Brilliant remote. Software has had all the bugs worked out. Old reviews bash mac support, but that seems to have changed. The blue backlight is really nice, and I prefer it to a colour touch screen. The classic, hand-friendly shape is much nicer and less toy-like than the newer, peanut-shaped one...
  • Cons: Shipped with a few big scratches on the top case.

Broke after about 1 year

Mark N., Newegg
7 October 2010
  • Pros: Easy to set up. Motion sensitive backlight, so it glows when you pick it up. Controlled everything from one remote.
  • Cons: Broke after 1 year of use. I was looking to replace it anyway, because as some have remarked, the buttons are too small. I feel like I'm texting when I type in a channel number. Its just too cramped and small on the keypad.
