Nevon T., Newegg
9 April 2011
  • Summary: I am a existing Harmony owner. I owned the Harmony 550 for about 3 years, when the buttons started to fade and the LCD screen started flickering i got this to replace it.

  • Excerpt: The remote is adequate for basic functions, but the software used to program it is the same broken garbage they've been throwing at users for years. There are no instructions in how to load it correctly, it asks ambiguous questions, it's slower than a dead dog, and you're lucky if it logs you in one...
  • Pros: It's a remote, if you can get it programmed.
  • Cons: Good luck getting it programmed. Won't charge over USB. No List button (useful for DVR).
