Great value, superb controller!


Received my controller in a couple of days via UPS. As usual, Newegg rocks!

I bought this controller because I lost my controller for my Home Theater, which is foreign. Because of this, other universal remotes I have purchased have failed to control my HT. Not so with the Harmony. In about an hour I configured my TV and HT...

None so far. It was love at first sight :)

Awesome for Recertified


It would be nice to turn on my pc from the remote. I have a logitech wireless keyboard set. I can turn it on via my mouse or keyboard but not the remote.

Came in looking brand-new, all software, parts and batteries included.

Doesn't recognize every brand perfectly. I have an Olevia hd tv and Logitech doesn't have support for all of their wireless devices.

WoW!!!! Exceeds expectation


Bottom line - this thing is awesome. But it won't work out of the box - it needs programming. The more info you have on your setup, the easier this will be, but it will still take some tweaking to get it to work the way you want.

This thing can handle my basic home theatre setup (TV, Replay, DVD/VCR, Amp) without problem. Macros are great - can set up apparently limitless macros to turn on sequences of devices and set them to the correct settings. Setup is done online, and just...

Programming is done online, which is cited as a negative on some reviews. But do you really want to try all 8 4-digit Samsung codes for your TV to figure out which one you want? I like the web/graphical interface so you can easily see what is mapped to...

Awesome remote for the price!


For the price, definitely worth it (I've seen similarly priced universal remotes that don't nearly this much)! For a "recertified", it looks like new!

First "Harmony" remote, but after experimenting for a couple of hours, have setup my entire system including some "combo sequences" (like the five steps it takes to turn closed captioning on my Dish DVR - voila, it's one now!)

LCD screen is a bit small
