Pros If you consolodate all your remotes into a standard "universal" remote, you still have to switch to each component, one at a time, and select the proper settings in order to get everything set up correctly. Even remotes that offer macros can't handle tho
Cons You program this remote by answering questions on a website and downloading the program into the remote over a USB cable, which is fine for simple audio/video installations. For more complex installations some users may find the web interface and downloa
Pros No programming, no "macros," no "learning" Easy-to-use web interface takes guess work out of setting up your system
Cons Small buttons, backlighting hard to read, confusing layout.
Summary I use this remote to control a full-on home theater system, with Lutron dimmers, audiophile preamp/processor, HDTV cablebox/DVR and HDTV plasma. The remote was easy to set up, and modify. Its on-remote help makes troubleshooting a snap if something doesn't turn on as planned. So easy to use and understand that friends can use the system without having to figure it all out.
Simply put, it just does what you need it to do.
Pros extremely easy setup, works great
Cons volume control is delayed, keys arent seperated
Pros easy to programs, works as it should
Cons can't turn my TV off, fell of the arm of a chair and is ruined.
Summary I was thrilled with how easy it was to set up and how it remembers what state everything is in. It knows what input the TV is on, and how many times to send the input signal to change it to the proper setting.
However, it fell of the arm of the chair, and the outer case is misaligned to the point the front cover is blocking the USB port and I can't make any changes anymore.
I don't expect remotes to be indestructible, but i do expect them to handle a fall from a coffee table or a similar height.
This has turned me off Harmony remotes.

Pros easy to program
Cons delay in response
Summary The only frustrating thing with mine is that there was a very noticeable delay between pushing a button and my tv reacting. I ended up getting a 720 and its much better.
