Logitech Harmony 890 Advanced Universal Remote
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.

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).
