Logitech Harmony 880 Advanced Universal Remote Control

Ti_FL, Rate it all!
2 November 2009
  • Summary: INTRODUCTION Requiring a universal remote for my Television, Digital Cable Box, BluRay Player, Wii and DVD Player/CD-G Karaoke Player, I chose this model for its capability of uploading programmed keys (from the internet) into the remote. I was looking for a remote that had codes that I can just upload, rather than painstakingly push buttons for the remote to 'learn' the various functions.

Logitech Harmony 880 Advanced Universal Remote Control

  • Summary: This remote is easy to set up using the included software. The functions, such as "Watch TV" and "Watch DVD" work well. However, the software only sets up basic functions. To use more advanced features of your equipment you'll have to add them manually. My equipment consists of a Dish Network PVR/Tuner and an LG BD-390 BluRay Player feeding an LCD screen. The basic remote settings don't include a way to quickly switch to programs recorded on the PVR.

Logitech Harmony 880 Advanced Universal Remote Control

  • Summary: This remote is a must for people with complex home theater setups. I have a Samsung Plasma TV, a Samsung Home Theater system, a Panasonic Blu Ray Player, a Comcast Set top Box and an Apple TV. It is seriously so easy to set this remote up. It guides you through a list of questions and drills down to your exact product. Be sure to have exact model numbers on hand. Also, I was able to customize the exact wording of each "Activity".

"Great for 2 years, then buttons failed"

paul7410, CNET
18 October 2009
  • Pros: Great remote, control all a/v products from one remote with easy web enabled change to new "toys'
  • Cons: After 1.5 to 2 years the buttons start failing. Underneath the buttons is a soft rubber/plastic that wears away over time as butons are pressed. In my experience the volume control and channel up down failed first.

"More reliable than the touch screen models"

ChaseFV, CNET
7 September 2009
  • Pros: Easy to set up. Buttons along the side of the screen allow for more reliable use than touch-screen models.
  • Cons: Not RF, but don't miss it with my set up. No blue-tooth, but separate donge resolves that. May require some complicated tweaking for perfect set-up.

"Great Idea, Poor Follow-through!"

himself24c41, CNET
7 September 2009
  • Pros: Have used this for 2 yrs. After initial programing it works very well indeed. Is very easy to switch from one set of options to another & one program to another.
  • Cons: Uses a special battery is supposed to recharge in charging unitr. It doesn't! When it fails, is a serious pain. Have fought with this for a Month. $10.00 item, throw it away. A $200.00 unit a bit more work on problem would help!

"Good versitle remote"

MikeB6000, CNET
29 August 2009
  • Pros: Versitile, great online database for devices. Rechargable battery is great
  • Cons: I have used 7 of the devices and the base station righ hand connector alwayd drops down and the unit will not charge. Obviously a design flaw. The buttons are a little too small for larger fingers.

"Rapidly becomes indispensable, but..."

Marc Myers, CNET
20 June 2009
  • Pros: This device takes all of the work out of setting up your home theatre to perform different functions. The touch of one button sets up each piece of equipment exactly as it should be for the desired function.
  • Cons: The PC or Mac software used to program the remote needs a good interface re-design. My biggest complaint is that Logitech considers this $250 piece of hardware to be disposable once out of warranty. They offer no repair options.

Worth taking the time to setup

Josh Dobbs, B&H Photo
3 January 2009
  • Summary: I bought this for my dad for Christmas. He was talking about getting some new home theater stuff and I figured why not get him ONE remote that he can program. I was the one to program it for him. I can say one thing bad about this, it took me forever to set this up. Basic setup was easy and didn't take more than 30 minutes, but going through making sure all the features work and doing one button activities takes forever.
  • Pros: Easy basic setup, Nice Button Configuration, Strong Signal
  • Cons: Time consuming setup
