    It feels good in your hand and the buttons are in pretty good positions.
    C Dawg
    To watch a DVD, again, it only required one button to turn off the DirecTV and power up the DVD as well as switch the inputs on TV and AV Receiver!
    S. Greene
    The setup software is very easy to use and intuitive, but it can take some work to get the buttons all customized just the way you want them.

    Model: 550
    Well, my Sima SUR-20 remote finally died after 5 years, so I had to find a replacement. I decided that I wanted a true universal/learning remote that had more than just a touchscreen. I started my search with Harmony because I have heard a lot of good things about them. My criteria included: learning, full macros, configurable, easy to use for less technologically advanced people, good button lay out, and no rechargeable batteries. This pretty much ruled out the 880, 720, and 890. Honestly, I'm not that big a fan of the peanut shape anyhow. So, my real choices became the 520 and 550. Not too much difference, mainly button layout and device limitations. In the end, I like the 550 layout best.

    I installed the software fairly easily. I made sure NOT to install the additional software that checks for updates, and I removed the software from the startup menu. Next I collected all the device model numbers. 10 minutes later I had the first iteration of my remote up and running. I spent the next hour tweaking the labels and layout of the buttons in my activities.

    The result is that all my devices are setup perfectly (TV, DVD, Home Theater, Cable Box/DVR, Roomba, and my HP Laptop). The 550 does a great job of switching inputs on my TV and Receiver. Actually, I have more functionality with this remote than on the remote that came with my dvr (skip forward)!

    I had equal ease of setup with my laptop and roomba. The only real negative is the speed, or lack thereof, of the software. The program is slow and it occasionally freezes for a couple minutes at a time. However, since you only need to use it when you setup a new device, it's not a deal breaker for me.

    The remote is intuitive enough for most anyone.

    Model: 550

    A great remote, but one that may take many hours of your time to set up


    - Good ergonomics

    - Nice tactile feel on buttons

    - Highly configurable

    - Seems to put out a strong signal (better then my factory remotes)

    - Non-rechargable (I consider this a plus)


    - Setup is easy, but getting it right can take hours

    - Not easy to map device buttons to activity buttons

    - No dedicated "decimal point" for tuning digital stations

    - Remote selection during setup doesn't allow you to pick from a list

    I'll preface this short review by saying that I manage a group at work tasked with making human / computer interfaces work well. So I have a decent amount of experience in this area (but I'm also picky - caveat emptor). Having said that, I found that Logitech tried very hard to get things right, but are still missing the mark in a few areas.

    I started by not installing the Logitech software from the disk (based on suggestions I had read here), but instead downloaded the software from the Logitech site. No installation problems, and my firewall software recognized and allowed the Logitech software to pass through without incident. I plugged the 550 into a USB port and XP recognized it and I was transported to the Logitech setup software. Good start.

    The first part where I had issue was in telling the software what devices I had. You have to type in the name of your model numbers after selecting the manufacturer, and there is no real indication as to whether the software recognized the device or not. It would have been much better to select the device from a list.

    Model: 550 Verified Purchase
    I have owned one of the orginal Harmony remotes for three years, and just upgraded to the new 550.

    Other reviewers describe the effectiveness of Harmony's "activities" based set up, and it truly is a great solution for the complicated "many remotes on the coffee table" problem. I'd like to address how easy it was to upgrade from an older model to the 550.

    I spent about 45 minutes perfecting my first Harmony using the online programming interface, and found it to be easy to use and comprehensive. When I unpacked my new 550, all I had to do was plug the remote into my computer's USB port, install the updated software (5 minutes), and download all of my existing programming (another 5 minutes). It worked perfectly!

    Great new features:

    The rubberized plastic back of the 550 makes it much less likely to slip off a table and fall to the floor.

    The backlit LCD display is much easier to read.

    Slimmer, more appealing styling.

    Keys, while a bit small, are indented which provides much better tactile feel and response than the older model.

    I am very pleased with this upgrade, and recommend it to anyone would like to easily control a variety of components with an intuitive, easy to use, single remote control. Well worth the investment!

    Model: 550
    After doing a lot of research, and finally reading slick045's and Justin's review below (the icing on the cake), I decided to go with the 550. I was looking for a simple, cool looking, rectangular remote that could control all of my devices (without breaking the bank). Within an hour, I had the remote working exactly how I wanted (actually, in 10 minutes I had the first iteration of it going). I was suprised that it even had my remote control lights in the online database (3BM, which is not a common brand). I know a lot of people say the software is difficult, but once you spend 15 minutes playing around with it you will figure it out. I am technically savvy but I don't think you need to be with this remote's software...in fact, I was glad it had so much programming flexibility. The only "major" tweak I had to do was remove the delay on the 550 remote for my Scientific Atlanta cable box as there was a noticeable pause when entering channel numbers. I did this by going to "Adjust the delays" for the device and changing the "Inter-Device Delay" from 1000ms to 0ms and walla it was as quick as the original cable remote. I was also impressed how easy it was to set up the activities to do multiple commands at once. Bottom line, definitely a smart buy. As this is my first day with the remote, I will be sure to update if things change, but I really don't think they will. I am a happy customer down from 6 remotes to 1!
