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: If you can get the item in good condition, it is a good buy. It is unfortunate that there is so much difference a unit to another. The first unit appeared to be 10 years old, and the second seemed new.
Pros: The second unit was complete and looked like new. Easy to configure. Good RF performance.
Cons: I had to RMA the first one. Battery was missing, and the RF receiver was damaged.
Pros: Looked to be open Box. Already owneda Harmony One with a lot of miles on it. Recently acquired item, Speakercraft Soundbar, whose remote signal was being blocked due to can ER configuration. The 900 has fixed this issue.
Cons: There does seem to be a small lag in response compared to th Harmony One. The setup is more of a challenge but once done it works very well.
Summary: Customer service was fantastic when I needed them for my old Harmony.
Pros: As far as compatability, I have had no troubles. Hooking up a 7 year old top of the line Yamaha Receiver all the way up to a new Samsung LED TV and Blu Ray player were all easy. Very convenient for the DVD player apps, especially Pandora. RF works well with all my equipment locked away in a close...
Cons: Not the most durable design. After the one and only drop, the screen cracked. And now a year later, the rubber coating on the back of the remote is almost completely worn off.
Summary: I have owned a Harmony 900 remote for two years now and I really like it. I got it because my wife wanted all of our components placed out of sight in a cabinet in the living room, and the RF capability was just the ticket.
Pros: Easy set up Works with all my devices Easy to add and delete devices
Cons: Expensive Sometimes 'forgets' the Blasters NOT compatible with newer Macintosh computers
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.
Pros: Works great, didn't take me to long for setup, have done before so I knew what I needed to get setup faster though. Like how many it handles and the range works for me. I am 25ft or under though.
Cons: Somewhat delay sometimes. Nothing serious. sensitivity on side touch screen keys can be annoying. press the right arrow and isn't as responsive as other touchscreen keys.
Summary: My third Harmony remote (replacing a Harmony One). The 900 allowed the equipment to be hidden behind a closed entertainment center door. I read several reviews before purchasing the 900 and had concerns with regard to the range (some reviewers stated they were only getting 10 feet).
Pros: Works through doors and walls (allows equipment to be hidden) Once setup is completed it has been almost bullet-proof (see exception in Other Thoughts) The only way my wife can work the equipment
Cons: Occasional Odd behavior (commands sent too slowly) Harmony remote software will not allow upgrade from Harmony One – required I create a new Harmony One ID and re-add all equipment and settings. The initial setup (adding equipment/activities) was straight forward but tweaking takes time. Example-...
