Pros: Supports everything I have owned, worked great for about two years
Cons: At about 2 years into its life, it got flaky. Sometimes the buttons work, sometimes they don't. There appears to be no rhyme or reason nor pattern to the buttons working or not. Mostly the volume, Enter, and channel up/down are intermittant.
"880: The definition of frustration and product failure"

Pros: Great remote when it has battery with power....
Cons: Engineering defect in the charging system. Class action suit in the making. Great idea, poor implementation. Unit does not charge. Customer support inadequate. Waiting for customer support to call me back (again).

Summary: I have owned this remote for at least a year and my cradle has finally quit altogether. Before I bought this remote, I too read all of the reviews about the bad cradle, but figured that I would try it and just return it if the cradle gave me any trouble. What I did not anticipate was that this could be a deteriorating issue. I started having problems 5-6 months into ownership. I would have to wiggle it a little bit to make good contact, but I could live with this.
Pros: It works at described, and is fairly easy to set up. The buttons are a little tough to find because the surface of the remote is flat, buttons aren't raised, as some remotes are. Probably the most complete and up to date list of components.
Cons: I've had two charging cradles fail, or cradle and remote have failed.
Pros: The concept is great, and while it worked, the remote was invaluable.
Cons: Although the software is mediocre and the buttons somewhat hard to use, I can live with that. The biggest problem is the contacts between the charger and the remote, which have become increasingly unreliable. I can no longer even charge the thing.
Pros: I know everyone raves about this remote and in fact, we loved it. Pros - recharges; able to handle both our DVRs
Cons: Recharging station failed; very slippery and it often slipped right out of our hands; button feel is not that good; web interface is not all that good; worst of all, buttons have failed - we've now lost enough buttons that we are throwing it out.
