Summary: This is by far the most functional universal remote we have used - perfect combination of the touchscreen and physical keys. And is the best looking as well. If only it didn’t give so much a scare to Macbook users! With the RF module as a part of the package, you can now hide away some of the gadgets from the line of sight, for a less cluttered look to the room.
Pros: Setup compatible at myharmony.com, Sleek design& excellent build quality, Touchscreen & physical key combo, Keys have differing designs for better touch location, RF module included in package, Dock for charging remote
Cons: It costs a whole lot of money, Doesn't get along with Mac OS X, Very glossy body, for the most part
Logitech Harmony 900 Universal Remote Control Review
31 December 2010
Conclusion: Although the inability to transfer existing devices and activities from another Harmony remote is a bummer, and the lack of macro support is a bit surprising, the fact is that the Harmony 900 is the most flexible, easiest to use and simplest to program universal remote I've had the pleasure of testing to date. Although the price is a bit steep, the Harmony 900 offers performance to match.
Summary: The Logitech Harmony 900 is an impressive universal remote but it loses some of its luster with the release of the Harmony Ultimate, which replaces it in the Harmony line.
Pros: Sleek design, in terms of cosmetics and ergonomics; PC programmable; excellent button layout and design that now includes new Blu-ray-centric buttons; high-resolution LCD that offers a touch-screen interface and touch-sensitive buttons for navigation of onscreen menus; rechargeable lithium ion battery and docking station; RF option included--and it's very easy to set up.
Cons: Price will scare off some buyers; PS3 control requires add-on dongle; dearth of user-programmable multi-device macros will frustrate advanced users.
