"Have owned since 2008, & still love it. its the best!"5.0 starson by stasjuice
Pros: I love the look of the remote. Its sleek & appeals to a very sexy sophisticated home theater set-up. It controls 12 devices & has the great activity function. Looks alot better then the other Harmony remotes. Love the blue light up display.
Cons: Not much really to say. I would like a color display & a rechargeable battery but its not an option. I also would like it to control bluetooth devices (suck as the Nintendo Wii). Again,... not an option.
Summary: This remote is awesome. I blow my friends away when i switch on things using the activity button. I love the fact that i can control up to 12 devices. I control my TV's (yes more then one), surround sound, media player, cable box, 2 game systems, & my Mac Mini. If you every have a time where one of the devices doesn't turn on or the TV doesn't switch to the proper component the help button gets everything on track.
It is a little annoying looking for each model number for each device then setting up all the rules you want the remote to control, but it is not difficult. It is def worth the time in the long run.Depending what you want the remote to do, control, & the amount of devices will determine how long it takes you. The program is very simple to use & Logitec is always updating the program. The great thing about it is that if you lose the disk & for some reason you don't have the program on you PC You can get the program from Logitec on their website.
The look of the remote is wayyy better then the other alien looking remotes Harmony makes. i have had this remote since 2008 & I still think its better looking then the newer color screen rechargeable remotes they have. The blue LED light is great when you are in a dark room & want to press a button or you are looking for the remote & it senses you are close & turns on
. I got my mother the 510 & it can only control 5 devices (which sucks if your tech savy like I am) which is ok for her, but would have to delete something if she wanted to add a device.
All in all i would recommend this remote to everyone; especially since is so cheap now.It doesn't drain the battery like the review has you think. I changed the battery (maybe) 5 times in the past 2yrs. Hope this review helps.
