"Don't buy a Harmony Touch"1.0 starson by Handonsnakey
Pros: I can't think of any "pros" right now, probably because my judgement is clouded by all the "cons".
Cons: Only 250 characters ?
Not enough, see below.
Summary: This doesn't replace my other remotes, as I can't rely on the "touch" working properly, so what's the point of it ?
Myharmony.com doesn't always work, it took me 2 days and dozens of attempts to log in the second time.
It's not hard to set up a command such as "play a Blu Ray disc, display it on my TV with the sound playing through my sound bar". After "syching" the remote, it works great. However, the following day it just wont work properly anymore. It'll neglect to set the sound bar to the correct input, or the TV wont turn on. The OP says that I can then use the "amazing" help function to sort out the problem.
Yes I can, but why should I have to ?
Why can't it just do what I programmed it to do in the first place ?
If I need to use the help function every time, why can't they make this device smart enough to realise that and alter the command ?
The screen is annoyingly laid out, why limit the number of commands that can be displayed at any one time by using a scrolling list instead of icons ? It's a touch screen (and this device is even called a "touch") so why not make propper use of that feature by using command icons on separate pages ?
Hello Harmony, are you from the olden days ?
Why are there so few back ground picture choices and why are none of them good enough to happily use ?
Why can't I change the "settings" icon to match the other icons that I've downloaded ?
Why is the battery life so short, it really doesn't have much to do, but only lasts 5 days ?! Also, when the battery goes flat it shuts down and stops working straight away.
We're all entittled to our opinions, but Seriously ?
The only "cons" that the OP could think of are the short USB cable and the slight lack of user friendliness as compared to another Harmony product ? It annoys me when people write glowing reviews about poor products. It annoys me even more when I pay so much money for that poor product based on their recommendations.
Will I ever learn ?
This little gadget has frustrated me so much that it angers me to give it more of my time by writting an honest review, but somebody had to do it.
I'm not wasting any more of my time on this POS, you shouldn't either, don't buy a Harmony Touch.
Thanks for your submission!
