"Last Remote You'll Ever Buy"4.5 starson by deluxedirt
Pros: Easily Identifiable buttons, Nice touch screen, Easy programming via USB, Works every IR remote in the home
Cons: A little pricey; however, its the only one I have found that did it all
Summary: I purchased this remote online last night for instore pickup today. I could hardly sleep, thinking I had just spent $250 for another friggin remote. Worth every penny! My previous attempts at learning remotes had always left me with at least one device that never really worked right; even after much effort in teaching the remote all I could. Once I logged in and installed the software for the Logitech Harmony One, I simply starting populating the remote with my device models. This included 2 tvs, 1 soundbar, 1 dvdr, 1 digital cable box, 1 hd cable box w/ dvr, a tv tuner set top box, a vga monitor, and a Bose wave radio. They all work as expected and with the same buttons they did before. Setting the activities is a breeze, and they can be adjusted and renamed via the software. I like the PC interface vs. programming codes from a book, that always seems to get misplaced before you next gadget purchase. The only downside I could forsee is the lack of RF; so I am curious how it will work with other home automation toys, like lights. Its a pricey little remote, but works as advertised and its rechargeable. In my case, thats a saving of least 10 AA or AAA batteries a month. Feels like a normal remote, and looks cool too.
