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: 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: 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
Summary: I contacted Newegg about the issues. They offered me an RMA. I am waiting to see if they can just replace the defective part. We'll see what happens, but I am extremely disappointed with this purchase, and with Newegg.
Pros: The build of the devices themselves seems good quality. Preliminary tests of the remote itself seems to function correctly.
Cons: The device is NOT refurbished. The definition of refurbished is that the device is tested to ensure complete proper functionality. One of the two AC adapters the unit came with (one for charging the remote and one for powering the blaster) did not work. Also, the device wasn't even cleaned before...
Summary: to select netflix, and selecting netflix, takes about a minute. It's certainly handier than doing all this by hand, I will give it that, but it takes a whole minute, when I can do the same process by hand in 20 seconds. On the bright side it gives you time to go pour a beer of choice.
Pros: It can handle all your devices and the Windows app takes care of setting them up for you. Pretty handy. --------- CONS START HERE: 1. when they battery is low, the buttons will not work until you acknowledge that the battery is low, which requires you to position your hand awkwardly to get your t...
Cons: 5. this 1 second of lag exists when lifting your hand off the button as well, so if you press and hold you have to "anticipate" when you actually want it to stop about a second in advance, to get the right volume 6. tapping the button several times to adjust the volume a tad higher/lower is also ...
