Logitech Harmony 890 Universal Remote

Dogorbit, avsforum.com
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...
  • Pros: Controls most everything, even weird off brand equipment
  • Cons: A pain to program

Great functionality but for the price I would expect better quality

Dennis M., Newegg

  • Summary: There are other universal remotes out there including Logitech ones and as far as I can see, this one is priced so high not because of the quality but because it has a large, color LCD screen. What I didn't know at the time of purchase is how little value that screen brings to every day use.
  • Pros: The remote is extremely easy to setup and use. When I bought it, it took me 30 minutes to load their software, enter the model numbers of my TV, A/V Receiver, Satellite Receiver and DVD player and instantly with one press of a button I could watch TV or switch to watching DVD. Before I got this r...
  • Cons: As many other people reported, this remote developed a typical problem where 3 out of 40 buttons became unresponsive. Unfortunately it is the 3 buttons I really need for regular TV browsing, so now I am back to having to use a satellite remote in one hand and "universal" in the other. For the pri...

Works, but cheap quality

Anonymous, Newegg
12 March 2009
  • Summary: I guess it is a decent value for the price paid.
  • Pros: Works with all my components. I like the activity feature and so does my wife.
  • Cons: 1. First 880 delivered was not functioning correctly, the tilt backlight feature was not working. Logitech sent a replacement. 2. Buttons are to similar in feel. 3. Button backlight is to dim. 4. Device features are buried deep in a non-customizable, generic menu. Makes tweeking a setting on a si...

Ok remote

Anonymous, Newegg
28 January 2009
  • Summary: I had a 676 before this one and it was more comfortable and ergonomic than this one. Glad I didn't pay full price...it ain't worth it.
  • Pros: Controls everything. Can make display fonts bigger. Nice display.
  • Cons: Bad ergonomics. Has trouble with an LG HDTV tuner. Buttons too tiny. DVD / play buttons are way on the bottom of the remote and (did I say tiny?) are awkward to find and see in a dimly lit room. The volume and channel buttons are again way to small, hard, and very uncomfortable to use and see.

feels cheap works ok

Greg G., Newegg
21 December 2008
  • Summary: Due to the software being desgnied for the mentally handycap and the mulitile posts about failed buttons i will give it 3 eggs. Hey logitech how bout an expert mode?
  • Pros: Does what i says
  • Cons: Software is designed for your mom, dad, grandma, and grandpa - which is great if you are technically challenged. For instance i have multiple devices that can play digital music. So when i set up an activity to play digital music the software tells me what device i want to turn on instead of lett...

Great remote overall...

  • Summary: Great concept, good user interface after a little learning curve, but the hardware is not up to par. If you purchase, be advised that you will run into at least one of the problems I listed above.
  • Pros: This is overall a great universal remote. Color screen is nice, remote lights up when it detects movement, controls almost everything under the sun! Love that it comes with a rechargeable battery and charging station.
  • Cons: Like a previous reviewer said, this remote is made very cheaply. Bought this for my parents for Christmas to control their satellite, DVD/VCR, and new HDTV. They have an older satellite receiver and for some reason, some commands do not work with this remote. Even learning the button from the old...

User Review

Thomas R., Newegg
19 June 2008
  • Summary: This is the second 880 I've owned. The first died a few weeks outside of the warranty period. Once you mess around with it for a few hours, it will do most of what you want it to do.
  • Pros: Works with just about any IR system
  • Cons: Limited lifespan, won't control Blue tooth. Not easy or intuitive to set up.

Inconsistent manufacturing?

Owen D., Newegg
1 May 2008
  • Summary: I am reluctantly ordering yet another 880 for mom. When they work they are that good.
  • Pros: The first 880 I had was garbage - wouldn't fully charge, malfunctioned, and finally the IR failed. However Logitech Customer Service was excellent (rare these days) and the replacement they sent has performed flawlessly.
  • Cons: First 880 remote failed miserably within a month.

Good idea - doesn't always work

Anonymous, Newegg
25 March 2008
  • Summary: If it worked the way you expect even 90 percent of the time I think this would have been a great product. It was a bit scary that it decided to do firmware update when I logged on the first time and then seemed to crash in the middle of the update.
  • Pros: Programmability being important for an item like this I would say it was pretty simple to program the activities. The buttons also have a good response.
  • Cons: It fails to turns on/off or perform the chosen activity half the time. I bought this to simplify the use of our setup for my visiting inlaws who don't speak/read English - so the help screen is pointless. The icons behind the text make the text hard to read. The buttons are a bit small making you...

Harmony 880 Remote Review

tdmartin5, PriceGrabber
22 October 2007
  • Summary: The remote worked as designed but I sent it back because I need on that sends via RF not IR. The 890 does this but is more expensive. If I didn't need RF capability, I would keep this remote.
  • Pros: Controls every component and allows you to set up events.
  • Cons: Does not transmit via radio frequency so components in closed cabinets can not be controlled.
