  • Pros: Successfully replaced 4 brand name component remotes. Backlit controls and charging cradle. Easy to understand screen commands.
  • Cons: Setup using a Mac was a pain. Sometimes gets out of order turning on/off multiple components. No blu-ray icon? Come on, man.

Excellent universal remote with RF

Jason, Abes of Maine
27 July 2010
  • Summary: While this unit is pricey (not on Abes of course), its far superior to all of the other Logitech universal remotes due to its RF (radio frequency) transmission. If you have multiple components and a TV and they are not all next to each other, its very hard to aim perfectly (with normal infrared) to control them all at once. With the RF blasters, you can place them where ever they are needed and there is no longer a need to aim the remote.
  • Pros: Ergonomic Design, Good RF coverage, Nice Features
  • Cons: Pricey but good value

Excellent overall

Walmart

  • Summary: I bought this to replace four remotes, and to keep my AV receiver cabinet door closed. Programming is pretty easy, and everything works exceptionally well. It did take a bit of coordination to make sure everything stays on or off the first time, but works great. I still have some questions, but having used LogiTech's Tech Support before, I know it will be done very quickly and very well. My only real complaint then is the battery, which drains within a few hours.

"NOT AS BAD AS THEY MAKE IT TO BE, BUT.."

  • Pros: Comfortable Grip Great Screen, backlit keys, ergonomic design, easy-to-understand-and use Harmony app, and Help button. At least the RF works for the control's receiver, IR blasters work on good range. Touch screen, buttons are very practical
  • Cons: No RF device (Z wave) support. Why the heck not logitech!? After you update, the remote assumes all your devices are OFF and if any are on will turn all of them off. Accelerometer is not very sensitive.

Performance exceeds expectations

Dennis, J&R
12 March 2010
  • Summary: I purchased a Harmony 900 to replace my Harmony 1000 which had issues. The wand shape is easier to use than the flat screen profile of the 1000. I was disappointed that I could not simply transfer information programed for the 1000 into the new remote and that the Harmony 1000 blasters appear to not work with the 900, but the 900 is superior to the 1000 in many ways. Programming of commands for equipment on my computer was a cinch.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Program, Easy To Set Up, Ergonomic Design, Great RF signal range, Nice Button Configuration, Nice Features
  • Cons: RF blaster problematic

Great - but Upgraders Beware!

AdamBAtl, J&R
8 February 2010
  • Summary: If you're looking for the ultimate remote replacement and you need built-in RF support so you can place IR equipment in a cabinet, this is it. HOWEVER, if you're thinking that this is an ehancement to the 890 (as Logitech would tell you) or like the Harmony ONE with RF then you are wrong. The discontinued 880 and 890 feature a "Setup Media" function for CD changers which allows you to enter disk #, title and artist for each CD you have loaded.
  • Pros: Durable, Ergonomic Design, Nice Button Configuration, Nice Features
  • Cons: Not Enough Features, Time-consuming to program

"Great! Not Perfect - but my system now works!"

burnsva, CNET
28 January 2010
  • Pros: Excellent button layout - great touchscreen. Uploadable channel icons for favorites. Addition of red, yellow, green, blue hard buttons. Customizable buttons for specific functions. Beautiful looking.
  • Cons: Inability to transfer existing harmony accout information. Pro users miss the ability to program complex macros/sequences. Prone to fingerprints (as all black gloss electronics are). Initial price of $400 is pricey.
