This is one fancy looking remote! I like it. I'm all about universal remotes. Like Geronimo pointed out, it's a pain having countless remotes lying about. Much easier to just run everything through one!

In addition, it has online setup software that does the hard work for the user and therefore simplifies the work for you!
- Flawlessness and fast transmission
The remote works flawlessly with HDTVs, DVDs, DVRs and Blu-Ray systems. This means that you only have to set it up once and then you can just sit back knowing that you now have control over all of the major devices in your living room.
Moreover, it has a solid construction and its buttons have a quality feel and further allows fast transmission of commands. Sometimes, though, it’s nice just to know that you have a quality product in your hands because of the way that it has been put together.
Other than the above explained positive features of the Logitech Harmony it has some advantages and these are;
- Though it operates at a very high speed, the remote sometimes jumps down 10 or 20 channels when you press the down arrow only once quickly and let go. This is contrary to what is expected as it is only expected to move up or down one step at a time.
- Though it is expected to operate multiple devices at a time, during turn OFF or during turn ON, not all the devices may respond correctly if the targeted button is not properly aimed and this therefore acts as a major setback in the operations of this remote

We have so many different electronic devices in our house that it's ridiculous, and with all of those devices come ten thousand remotes... or at least that's what it feels like! I'm a big fan of the Logitech brand name so I might have to buy one of these. It would be really nice to sync it to all the devices in the living room and only have one remote instead of the five or six we currently have!
