Best, easiest user-programmable remote on the market
10 November 2012
Summary: I am a big time fan of this remote. It saves your programming settings on line in your account, so it is very easy to tweak the settings to make it work perfectly with your devices. It is 2012 and I was able to easily sync it with four different brands of devices, including one that is 8 years old and one that is 5 years old.
Pros: Sleek, Easy to program, Compatible with a huge range of devices
Summary: Successfully replaced 4 brand name component remotes. Backlit controls and charging stand work well in our darkened TV room. My technology challenged spouse was able to figure how to use the touch screen fix problems when turning off/on the setup gets out of sequence .Setting up the software using a Mac was (finally) achieved with a 50 minute phone call the Harmony Tech Support.
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.
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.
Excerpt: Works great, didn't take me to long for setup, have accomplished ahead of so I knew what I required to get setup quicker though. Like how several it handles and the variety performs for me. I am 25ft or under even though. Somewhat delay often. Nothing at all serious. sensitivity on side touch screen keys can be annoying. press the right arrow and isn't as responsive as other touchscreen keys.
Excerpt: Awesome upgrade from the Harmony 890! This factor rocks. It works with virtually every device you can throw at it. Simple to setup and uncomplicated to use! The RF is super sweet, no a lot more need to have to point and hold the remote at the entertainment center. The price. It is a tad costly, but in my opinion, worth the dollars. There is a way to get it working with your PS3. Purchase http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?
Excerpt: Works through doors and walls (allows equipment to be hidden)Once setup is completed it has been pretty much bullet-proof (see exception in Other Thoughts)The only way my wife can perform the equipment Occasional Odd behavior (commands sent too slowly)Harmony remote computer software will not enable upgrade from Harmony 1 – necessary I generate a new Harmony One ID and re-add all equipment and settings.The initial setup (adding equipment/activities) was straight forward...
Excerpt: Works with almost everything. Macros make it straightforward for non-technical users once it is set up. I agree on the channel delay for components behind the blaster. Also would be good if it worked with other RF components naively.
Excerpt: Seriously, I love this gadget - and I'm not a gadget guy. More importantly, my wife loves this gadget. You should have seen her grinning as she scraped all 137 old remotes off the coffee table and dumped them in drawer. The remote did freeze up a couple times on me after I programmed it for my system, requiring a 'reboot' (removing the batteries momentarily). Afterward, it still knew about all my stuff and did not require a reprogram.
Summary: Första universalkontrollen och den är bra. Sex fjärrkontroller har blivit en och programmeringen av aktiviteter möjliggör det för frun att enkelt använda elektroniken hemma. Tycker inte Logitechs mallar varit något större problem, tog mig ungefär en timme att ställa in allt. RF fungerar felfritt i det stängda skåpet. Minus: lite väl dyr samt att den oftast hänger sig när man ska synka med datorn.
