Logitech Harmony 890 Universal Remote
11 September 2012
Summary: This system nearly stopped the complaints from my wife about multiple wireless remotes. After multiple attempts to control my theaters many systems (which consists of RS1 projector, Onkyo master receiver, Sony receiver, PS-3, Dish receiver, Sony DVD, Chinese curtain puller, HDMI switcher and Lutron lighting system) All systems now operate with a single button, except one .... I gave up trying to control the on/off function of the Dish receiver model ViP 722 DVR.
Pros: Controls most everything, even weird off brand equipment
Cons: Weight of remote is very top heavy pressing 35 with one hand the rmeote is very hard to handle. I have owned it for just 4 months and the volume and channel keys already are failing..everytime I press up the volume goes up by 2's same as down.
"Good while they last, but buttons fail post-warranty"

Pros: Very nice interface, relatively easy to program, works on most components, makes multiple operations super simple with single button-press, even your family will get it.
Cons: Programming is quirky, requires internet connection to download component database, some equipment never works properly, doesn't always keep up with newer equipment releases. Volume control may fail after warranty period expires.
"Great interface and customer support. But will break."

Pros: Love being able to program this on the computer. Infinitely flexible. Works with all kinds of things including my DVR and Apple TV. Have called customer service twice and they were nice and helpful
Cons: Lasted ~16 months. I had problems remarkably similar to other postings: volume buttons wore out (I had to use 2 of the programmable buttons). Charging cradle is finicky. Battery loose. And it finally just quick taking / holding a charge.
