Pros Easy setup, total PS3 control, including on/off
Cons Price. I don't regret buying this, but considering I've already unloaded some cash for a Harmony remote you'd think they'd make it more affordable. It's worth about $20-$30.
Summary I'm not sure what the reviewer had trouble with. I had this thing up and running in about 3 minutes. As with any other device or activity, customizing the hard/soft buttons takes some tweaking. This is a great product. I know Logitech needs to recoup R&D, but if this thing were $20 or $30 you'd see 5 star ratings from everyone.BTW, this replaced a Nyko. While the that one was good enough it did lack full functionality. With this device you can perform functions (i.e. subtitle, audio track) with the push of a button. With the Nyko you have to enter a menu.

Anyone want to buy a Nyko? How about a PS3 bluetooth remote?
Updated on Jun 3, 2009Re CNET's downsides:
Adapter requires power - either it requires a plug, batteries or USB. USBs are a a premium, so batteries are the only other option.
Harmony programming isn't as simple as directions make it out to be - Yes it is.
Won't work with remotes other than Harmony - It's a Harmony product so of course it doesn't. Seems like this complaint is really reaching.
Pros Easy set up. Works as advertised.
Cons None so far.
Summary I have a Harmony One and it's great to be able to use it to control all functions of my PS3. No more using the Sony remote that had no backlighting which made it difficult to use in the dark. Only wish it came out sooner. Another great product from Logitech!
Pros Good while it works.
Cons It does it work after a year.
Summary Its cheaply made product that does not work after a year. I have read a number of reviews that have had the same experience as mine...This product will stop working right around year after purchase. So you will not be able to get a replacement from Logitech. I have notified Logitech of their faulty product and they are refusing to replace it because it is out of warranty. Do your research and you will see a large number describing the same experience.
Pros Bluetooth connectivity
Cons Cost and compatibility with RF extender.
Summary This was a great addition to my home theater setup. I got a 50% off coupon (thanks ebay!), and was able to pick it up for cheap. Normally, this is a pretty hefty price to pay for what it does, but it works well. I have an RF extender with all my gadgets set up in another room, and the worst thing about this adapter is that there is no easy way to connect the adapter to my RF extender. Logitech says there is a cord to hardwire the two together, but they don't sell it. I had to rig up a weird connection (2.5mm mono male to 3.5 mono male) to get it to work without sticking the ugly IR emitter onto the adapter (which believe it or not really affected the output).
Anyway, the ability to connect my harmony remote with my PS3 without extra wires or taking up the precious USB ports makes this a great buy. It is a little pricey, but it works great.
Pros Works fine with PS3, and you can customize buttons at your remote control.
Cons I had an issue with my first adapter, which was confirmed by the manufacturing as a bug.
Some units had to be replaced as they loose the "PS3 pairing" everytime.
Summary if you have a harmony remote and PS3, you need that.
Thanks for your submission!
