Not all it's cracked up to be

travisrgeorge, CNET

  • Summary: Apparently I pressed the touch screen too hard and it cracked. Think about that: it's a touch screen, and you have to press it softly. That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. So now I can't read anything on my screen. What kind of shoddy material is this made out of? Ever heard of gorilla glass? Your screen is pathetic. To make matter worse my remote was still covered under warranty but they refused to send me a replacement or refund because they said it was my fault.
  • Pros: Customizable
  • Cons: Cheap screen/hardware; terrible customer service

  • Pros: Great while it lasted for a few days
  • Cons: Lasted a few days (2 units)

Logitech Harmony 890 Advanced Universal Remote Control

5 November 2009
  • Summary: I cannot recommend any Logitech Harmony device. We probably all know that any universal remote, especially those controlling multiple devices, is going to be a challenge to program. No, I'm not a luddite. I'm very technically proficient. The manual is incomprehensible and does not match the actual device. For example, for one of the steps to use the device, the manual tells the user to click on "Remote Preferences." There is no such button in their software.

  • Pros: Battery charger is a nice function
  • Cons: Not durable. Doesn't do what it is suppose to most of the time. Terrible software.
