"Finally the PS3 can be controlled with my Harmony"4.5 starson by rasmoses
Pros: Works as promised
Cons: A bit pricey
Summary: OK, I've been kind of iffy on CNET reviews ever since they switched up the reviews on their TVs and dropped some scores. In my opinion once you've decided on a score you shouldn't go back and adjust said score unless something was discovered later on that either takes away from or adds to the product. From what I understand they lowered some scores because of "changes in the competitive marketplace." Uhm, what exactly does that mean? Aren't there always changes in the competitive marketplace? Isn't that why we have new and updated products, so that companies can remain competitive? Anyway, I feel this adapter deserves more than 3.5 stars. It does what is promised, end of story. There's no way that everyone would have been satisfied other than if Sony had put an IR sensor in the PS3. If it used a USB port, people would have complained. If it operated on batteries, people would have complained. It requires a power outlet, and still people complain. I think a power outlet was probably the most reasonable way to feed power to this device. I had absolutely no problems pairing this with my PS3 or programming my remote, so I find it funny that the CNET reviewer did when it was very easy and the Harmony software has pop up indicators that explained certain issues like choosing to add the PS3 as a game console. In my opinion setting up any device with your Harmony remote may take a couple of syncs until you find what button placement you're comfortable with. All in all, though a bit pricey, I definately recommend the Harmony Adapter for the PS3. Thumbs up.
Thanks for your submission!
