Great remote

spidgeon77, PriceGrabber
23 July 2007
  • Summary: Great remote overall...replaced my 6 remotes. I have a a couple ceiling fans that includes an RF remote, but the Harmony only does IR. Price was reasonable and I would definitely recommend.
  • Pros: Easy to use. Docking station w/rechargable batteries is awesome. One push button auto changes to the device(s), and changes specific input required.
  • Cons: LCD is like first color laptop (not active matrix). Remote only does IR and not RF signals.

Very Satisfied

  • Summary: All in all, I really like the Harmony 880 and am very happy with it's performance and flexibility. I don't like the limitations of the software but understand Logictech's aim to make things simple for the normal tech IQ person.
  • Pros: It does exactly what I bought it for, that is to replace several remotes. I like the style and features and it's been able to be programmed to do "just" about everything that I needed.
  • Cons: It is a tech device, so even though they try to make the software as simple as possible, it might be a challenge for some. The simplicity does hinder the capabilities for high end users to an extent.

Harmony remotes rock

  • Summary: I got this model this past Christmas to replace by previous Harmony remote and I love it. All I had to do was plug the new remote into my laptop PC, login to Harmony, and programing the remote was done in a few minutes. All of my old settings transferred over without a hitch.
  • Pros: Charging base and color screen
  • Cons: Flimsy charging base and no extra battery.

Nice fancy remote with good functionality - nice...

  • Summary: OK - one of the reason I bought harmony 880 remote was because it looks cool! Second reason was I was tired of using walmart/target type 10-20 bucks remotes which doesn't do anything. And lastly, I got great deal on Dell's site for this remote (under 80 bucks).
  • Pros: Fancy look, Computer programmable, Easy programming
  • Cons: Programming could have been easier, Sometimes hickups, No touch screen

Sensitive, but worth the trouble.

  • Summary: Overall, the remote is wonderful. I bought it for my parents (who are older and not as tech-savy as much of the world). They don't have many complaints, except for the battery problem described above, which has been solved with a piece of tape.
  • Pros: Once you set it up, you're done! You'll never have to remember how things are plugged in to each other again. If the remote ever stops working correctly, reload configs via the USB.
  • Cons: Battery connection is weak. I had to tape the battery, so that it didn't slip around in the battery slot. A little complex to setup. Web USB interface is clunky.

Logitech Harmony 880 Advanced Universal Remote

  • Summary: Overall, I love the unit. Now that it is set up and now that I have become comfortable with the key layout, it works flawlessly.
  • Pros: Handles all my AV units flawlesly (except the 'pause' on TiVo). Setup done via USB port on computer. The motion-detector light is genius - when you pick up the unit it lights up so you can see what you are doing.
  • Cons: Complicated set up. (Tech Support at Logitech was extremely helpful - indeed, they set up much of my unit on their end.) The keys are small and not well differentiated.

Pricey, but, as good as they get (for now).

  • Summary: I had a Harmony 630 and decided to upgrade to 880 when we bought our Bose lifestyle and 50" Sony SXBR TV system. I am very happy (so far) with the 880. IT is very nice to look at and has the power and functionality to back it up too.
  • Pros: Appearance, lightweight, powerful, updates via web, can add pictures, modifiable function keys, rechargable battery, hit one button to turn ALL components ON or OFF!!
  • Cons: Cost, buttons could be placed a little better...meaning it is difficult to navigate using only number buttons as they are located at very bottom of remote pad, making it necessary to hold it with 2 ha

880 beats the old models, but still not perfection

  • Summary: I have the Harmony 688, so I can make a good comparison. PROS: Turning on and off everything at once, controlling volume and channels from one remote is HUGE! Big points for doing what remotes should have done long ago. I don't know why other reviews are saying the battery life is bad.
  • Pros: Color screen, auto backlight dimming feature (after 10 seconds), rechargeable battery with GREAT life, 8 available action buttons per screen within each activity (vs. 6 or 4 on other models)
  • Cons: Buttons have little tactile response, and are crammed next to each other. I am constantly looking down to find the buttons, VERY difficult to memorize remote, unlike the older Harmony 688 and 659.
