Remote itself is great

Thomas W., Newegg
8 February 2012
  • Summary: I had to purchase the Logitech mini controller (for google tv) also which is what really topped it all off... Now i have a gold mine in remotes because a 300+.00 remote doesnt have any keyboard options.
  • Pros: Programming is anything but easy. If you want just the basic setup then yes it is very easy. But to customize it requires alot of time. Someone with basic knowledge can set this up without any issues. Time you need to put aside at least 4 hours to setup 3 or more devices with all the customized s...
  • Cons: I cannot give this more than 2 eggs for several reasons. THE BIGGEST #1 issue is price. This is easily a 100.00 to 150.00 remote MAX. I have debated several times on returning it for a cheaper model when I first purchased. But after getting the remote setup the way I want it the thought of redoin...

Great design, bad performance

Robert B., Newegg
27 January 2011
  • Summary: If you're buying this thinking it's a harmony one with RF, save your money. The signal is very weak by any standards and the RF blasters are meant to rest on a shelf in front of your components rather than the old stick on pods. Which means that you components have to be arranged properly to work.
  • Pros: Great look and feel. Touch screen is clear and fairly responsive.
  • Cons: RF is almost worthless beyond 15 feet. Battery life is poor. RF blasters are not well designed.

NOT an upgrade from the 890

Anonymous, Newegg
3 January 2011
  • Summary: I think I will try the Harmony one and a third party extender solution.
  • Pros: The touch screen is nice and the menus are simple to use. Not having to individually program the extender and the remote is nice and timesaving.
  • Cons: Primarily I bought this as a replacement for my dead 890. This was not an equivalent replacement. I was expecting a remote that was a step up from my previous one but I was wrong. I need the RF capability but the RF transmitted/receiver in this remote is terrible. The range is no where as good as...

No support after 90 days

Walmart
14 June 2010
  • Summary: I bought this remote based on the reviews on this site but they forgot to indicate there is no free support after 90 days. After that period you have to pay 30$ just to talk to customer service.

great features, no range

Avery D., Newegg
8 February 2010
  • Summary: If it were not for the dismal RF range it would have been great, but a little pricey.
  • Pros: Great feature set, with Activities and such. They try to make it very easy for non-techie people.
  • Cons: If you require a non-line of sight range of greater than 10ft-15ft to the balster it won't work or be so flakey you'll hate it. I needed 25-30ft non-line of sight, there was no way. Even with line of sight to the blaster it was only 15-20ft max. Mis-advertised, 100ft is rediculous. I had to retur...

No Manual Included

David M., Newegg
7 February 2010
  • Summary: When I initially did the setup I ran into a problem with my PS3. My PS3 connects to my Pioneer 1019 via the BD port not HDMI. The 900 setup wizard did not recognize BD and insisted on one of the HDMI ports.
  • Pros: Great product but no manual is included for details on how to configure it (see Con comments). Before you try to set it up the first time, it is important to make you know the model numbers of each component you wish to control with your 900 and how they connect to each other. I.e my Samsung LN55...
  • Cons: Unless I'm missing something Logitech does not include any documentation or manual on this product. No manual in the box; no manual when I browsed the CD. I checked Logitech's tech support/downloads and no manual available there either. Maybe I'm different but when I buy something I like to know ...

Expected better performance

Wayne F., Newegg
26 October 2009
  • Summary: Hamony 900 is cool and easy to program, but I expected a lot better range/performance for a $400 remote (it was purchased elsewhere)
  • Pros: Easy to program, including macros. Touch Screen is easy to see and use. Buttons respond with crisp 'click'.
  • Cons: I was using this to work TV in my bedroom and TV on an outside patio (outside the bedroom) sharing same satellite receiver. The RF function worked well in the bedroom, but on the patio was rather weak. I had to walk out from under the roof and point it toward the upstairs to get it to work. I tri...

Knappt godkänd

fkon, Prisjakt
20 June 2013
  • Summary: Jag har ägt denna sedan den kom ut, det är en riktigt bra fjärrkontroll med två stora och en liten brist som drar ned helhetsbetyget: * Inga macros! Oförklarligt beslut från Logitech och min absolut största invändning mot fjärren. * Dålig mjukvara för att programmera fjärren.

Ganska dålig

knorlund, Prisjakt
22 February 2010
  • Summary: Har också bytt upp mig från en 885 till en 900 med förhoppning om stordåd. Den lever inte upp till mina förväntningar. Max 5 m är räckvidden, ibland har jag problem på bara ca 3 m, det är ju riktigt dåligt till en annars bra fjärr (ergonomiskt).
