Purchased 2, 1 worked for 6 months the other not at all

Summary: Sometimes I drift off thinking if I could just meet the seller in person and what I would do to them, that is the only pleasure I get out of both of my 900's I purchased and promptly threw away
Pros: Overall the Harmony 900 is better then the garbage that Logitech has put out recently. Seriously, don't believe me go buy a Harmony Ultimate or Smart remote then punch yourself in the face. Why would Logitech think that a remote should operate through your WiFi? Find a good used Harmony 900 - but...
Cons: Cleaning a gas station toilet will give you more satisfaction Just like all the other reviews. Some guy in his basement packaged them in his mothers sandwich bags and sent them on their way just before licking them after eating a chocolate bar. One failed instantly and the other lasted 6 months. ...
Cons: Broken, never worked properly. Wont even turn on, been through all the troubleshooting throughout the web and its apparent that there are internal issues with the remote. Would not recommend to anyone for the amount of money it costs, you are throwing your money away. Logitech support is the wors...
Summary: I would not recommend purchasing one of these as they don't work.
Pros: Beautiful design and great functionality. When it works it works great
Cons: Broken out of the box. I received this in a nice box with all the packing material. Hooked everything up and once the device was charged it when white screen and locked. Pulled the battery and tried again. Worked for about 2 hrs. and then locked up. Froze on reboot and every time it is charge it ...
Summary: I decided to go with this because of Newegg's solid replacement policy after reading the reviews that many of these remotes apparently don't get checked well by the manufacturer when they are refurbished. I went through two of them before Newegg went out of stock and refunded my money.
Pros: Powerful and customizable
Cons: As a refurbished unit, it seems there is a strong likelyhood the unit you receive will not operate 100%
Summary: A few reflashes of the firmware and a new battery later, I called Logitech to get it repaired/replaced. They said they no longer make this model and asked if their new smart remote product would be an acceptable replacement. Sorry Logitech, no.
Pros: I love this remote. I have installed nearly 30 of them for clients and every single person has loved them. The RF range is great. The configuration is pretty easy to get it exactly how you want.
Cons: I received a pretty obviously used remote, not refurbished. It worked fine for about 40 days, then I started getting a white screen mid use.
Pros: Good remote overall - had I received all the accessories that came with it
Cons: Missing the battery, and the two RF adaptors, and one power supply. Got a completely different IR base. I'm guessing the person who returned it didn't return everything. Newegg really needs to check before sending out refurbished products.
Summary: No good upgrade replacement form Logitech yet
Pros: Works with all my devises; Yamaha AV receiver, Cisco PVR, BR. The software is great, finds all devices and programs the remote--adjustments can be made and uploaded to remote via old style USB. Quick search online and found icons for my favorites designed just for the 900—way cool. Remote wakes u...
Summary: Any cons I can think of are EXTREMELY minor details that have to do with the remote itself, not with this refurbish deal that newegg offers. I see many people receiving broken units and all I have to say is, if you look into this remote and decide you like it, buy it here and have patience.
Pros: Lowest price I've seen anywhere Fast and free shipping Works perfectly Easy setup, however it will take a few times to tweak things to your liking after you become more familiar with the remote Looks great, the whole family assumed it was new Extremely simple to use for even the least tech savvy ...
Cons: As my first universal remote I don't have anything to compare this to, Everyone seems to scoff at the lack of sequences, which seems like a cool feature and I was worried I'd have trouble without it, but I don't mind.Those with larger setups might prefer a remote that has them. I would however li...
Summary: Contacted Logitech Support with an issue and they said my device has been registered to three other people in the past. They wouldn't support the device without charging a fee. Refurbished in common terms presumes certain minimum standards, one being the expectation that you can still get support on...
Pros: Device's technology is impressive. Functions well for most part.
Cons: Device accessories have significant scratches and look as if they were pulled out of the trash. Manufacturer won't provide support unless a "small" fee is paid.
Summary: I rma'd my first one. I hooked it to my computer and ran the Logitech Software to upload commands to it and received a bad region error. The unit they sent back says repaired but it does exactly the same thing.
Pros: Don't know can't get it to work
Cons: Unit will not update when hooked to computer
