Logitech Harmony 890 Advanced Universal Remote

CNET
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: While it isn't perfect, the Logitech Harmony 890 should be near the top of your list if you're in the market for a sub-$400 RF remote that can operate equipment that's hidden behind cabinets or closet doors.
  • Pros: Logitech's first universal learning remote to incorporate both IR (infrared) and RF (radio frequency) wireless operation includes a rechargeable battery and docking station, an RF base station, a DVR-friendly button layout and backlit keys. As with other Harmony remotes, the Logitech 890 is Web-programmable and is compatible with Windows and Macintosh machines.
  • Cons: Compared to the IR-only 880, the Logitech Harmony 890 is pricey. Its Web interface may intimidate nontechie users, and it lacks the Wi-Fi connectivity that's beginning to appear on some rival high-end remotes.

  • Conclusion: If you're looking for a universal remote to tame all your unruly home-theater devices, Logitech's Harmony 890 is one killer option.
  • Pros: Programming software is easy to use. Configuring the remote takes about an hour, not days. Remote comes with charger and wireless extender. Has a Help button to fix occasional problems.
  • Cons: Fast-forward, play, and rewind buttons could be better placed. Wireless extender must be connected to your PC during programming. Codes occasionally do not get sent.

Logitech Harmony Model 890 Advanced Universal Remote Review

BigPictureBigSound
8 May 2006
  • Excerpt: The reputation of the Logitech Harmony 890 preceded it. Not just from reading the stellar reviews of the 880 and 688 right here on Big Picture Big Sound , but also from independent sources which confirmed the 880 as the ne plus ultra of remotes. So when the 890 appeared at my door, I tore into it like a kid in a candy store (a candy store that also sells very cool universal remotes).
