Nice product

  • Summary: Overall, I am very happy to be rid of three remotes and be able to just use one. It can be a little tricky to get the remote just how you want it, especially if your TV has its nuances (I have a Syntax LCD)... but it is working fine for me
  • Pros: It controls all of my devices and the setup is not too complicated. The softkey functionatlity is nice and expected from a high-dollar product.
  • Cons: The buton layout seems a little awkward. The number buttons being on the bottom of the remote make them difficult to use without contorting your fingers around. It would also be nice to be able to assign buttons/softkeys to multiple step processes (e.g. press a button to do several things at once...

  • Summary: Once everything is all setup, this definately got the Wife Appriciation Factor.
  • Pros: The first time programming this can be a tedious task. But after all the macros are programmed, my wife loves it! She's very intimidated by my Pronto 7000, so with this remote, she can easily switch from one source (TV, Tivo, DVD, etc) to another.
  • Cons: Im used to programming my Pronto and feel that the Harmony's website is a bit cumbersome. Its also slow to response to my clicks. Harmony need to create something where programming is done locally.

  • Summary: HDTV home theatre = $xxxx Remote with $xxrebate = $xx Wife & Kids using all devices with one remote = priceless
  • Pros: I have a Hitachi HDTV, Onkyo reciever, dvd player, vcr,HDTV satellite receiver, OTA antenna rotator, ceiling fan, and ceiling lights all working with this remote. Took 30 minutes to program and it took all of my equipment on the first try. Was able to teach my age 7 daughter how to operate everyt...
  • Cons: Software needs to be available on disk instead of only on their website.

Excellent learning remote for the $

  • Summary: Overall I really like the remote. Once it is programmed and you get over the button size cons, this remote is excellent. Logitec has opted to not give you any software with the remote.
  • Pros: Decent layout, narrow, finger holds and rubberized molding feels very good in your hands, good weight, initial setup for all your equipment is exceptionally easy, codes for rare equipment available.
  • Cons: Absolutely hate the customization software, direction buttons as a ring often cause me to hit right when I want down, glow button hard to find in dark, all buttons being the same size makes running the DVD in low light too hard, you can't do final tweeks by programming the remote from the remote.

Everything but the ring

  • Pros: Easy to setup. I love their website. Works great with all of my "normal" devices (TV, DVD player, receiver, etc.). Works well enough with my computer's IR keyboard (it might be able to work better with more tweaking). Battery lasts a long time.
  • Cons: The ring style navigation is enough to make me not want to buy this remote again. Many times I meant to press one direction and got another on the ring.
