A reliable old friend

  • Summary: I've had the Harmony 880 for almost 6 years now. When it's all set up and nothing changes in my system, it's great. Switches activities wonderfully, and responds quickly. If you're planning to add a new component or replace an old one (say, you replace a DVD player with a Blu-Ray), setting up the new device and adding it to the corresponding activity can be a hassle, sometimes forcing you to trash the activity all together and start from scratch.
  • Pros: Great for systems with lots of components
  • Cons: Adding new components or replacing old ones can be a hassle

Logitech Harmony 880 Advanced Universal Remote Control

  • 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.

  • 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 remote

  • 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. I would like to have more features accessible to those of us who want higher end, but it's a compromise like everything else. The device isn't perfect, but none is.
  • 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. I love being able to control my 6 audio/video devices with just one remote. The only down side of this product is that it only comes with one battery.
  • 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). I have Panny plasma, Sanyo A/V Receiver, cable box, Coby DVD player, Sony CD player - this remote handles everything most of the times without any problem. The setup was little confusing but fairly painless.
  • 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. However, it's disappointing that Logitech (a company whose products I love because of their design and durability) would have a battery compartment that is too large for the battery, therefore allowing the battery to slip and...
  • 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.

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. I mean, isn't that really the reason for getting a Harmony, funtionality? Well, I also read all of the other reviews before making my purchase and was a bit skeptical and nervous based on those reviews.
  • 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
