Pros: Very easy to integrate all devices and functions into one remote with one button macros. I've owned and used this remote repeatedly for more than 5 years with only a handful of easily corrected issues.
Cons: The software application (and later the web app) are a little quirky where each remote requires its own account. Paid $175 for this remote 5 years ago; why is it now $400?
Summary: A great product and was my favorite Christmas present that I received this year. Heck, even my kids can now easily play games on the xbox, watch TV via cable, and watch DVDs without having to use multiple remotes: even the 5-year old can use the remote!
Pros: Love the programming capabilities, especially the ability to place delays between commands. Had a problem where the Harmony was sending the commands too fast to the device, and the delay capability was just what was needed.
Cons: Sometimes the remote gets confused about what is and is not turned on. The help built into the remote isn't very good.
Summary: I've been very happy with my most recent purchase, although the $180 price tag has been a bitter pill to swallow. You get what you pay for though, I replaced 5 other remotes, all of which were a chore to use, with this one and I've yet to find fault with it.
Pros: fits well in the hand, feels solid, buttons feel sturdy, not rubbery like most remotes, nice online setup/programming
Summary: This remote is very nice for setups which require multiple systems to be used in combination. My media player uses the tv, media player and surround sound system which all turn on at the same time (and on the correct channels etc.
Pros: Relative easy to set up. Replaced 6 remote controls. Easy to operate once settings are programmed.
Summary: I *love* this remote. It replaced four remotes with ease, and I don't feel like it's anywhere near it's potential yet. The Xbox thing isn't huge, since you're more than likely going to be using a controller to play your games, so you can use that instead of the remote to turn off.
Pros: - Looks beautiful on a table - Easy to follow installation - Has a charging dock that looks fantastic, but still low profile - Great battery life - The Help menu has fixed any problems that come up.
Cons: It has some trouble configuring activities with the new Xbox 360. I haven't been able to get it to turn it off, or to consistently choose the right method to turn it on. I usually have to use the help menu, but the help menu does fix it.
Pros: I love this remote! It makes it so much easier to watch tv or dvd's. Just set it up and hit one button and it turns all your equipment on and turns them to the right settings to watch whatever your wanting to watch.
Cons: Their are only two cons that I can think of. First off, I am having trouble getting the remote to recognize the input my tv needs to be on and second, to use it with a PS3 you have to buy a special adapter.
