The Harmony One is slick in terms of usability and programming which is good but also slick in that it's like a greased banana. It's so smooth and slippery that it's ten times easier to drop or mishandle than the URC remotes which are non-slip. Mishandling means sending all sorts of weird commands to equipment and dropping means potential damage to the remote. I had hoped the Zagg folks who make protective non-slip coverings for cell phones and related devices would make a full body covering for the Harmony One but they don't - only a screen protector.
On the plus side, the on line IRC codes for the Harmony One are extensive and accurate. It is fairly inutive to program and it has a ton of capability. The color touch screen is bright and adjustable and the onboard accelerometer that turns it on when moved is a nice touch. My local URC dealer basically lied to me when he told me that the Harmony wasn't as capable of complex macro sequences as are the URC remotes - it is, you just have to figure out how to make those work. The reason URC dealers don't like the Harmony One is that they can't bilk you for the programming fee. The Harmony is a lot more user friendly for people not familiar with your system and once you get the cable favorites progammed, the on board station artwork and logos are cool. The USB cable hook up is nice and works well. Many of the older and even some current URC remotes are still using antique serial cables not that it matters anymore because URC won't let anyone but dealers program the units on line.
On the negative side, programming the cable favorites on the Harmony One was a real chore but once it's done, the art work for the stations will make any tech junkie happy. The more complicated your system is, the more complex it is to program the Harmony One. Stuff like 12 volt triggers on interconnected audio equipment can give you fits until you figure out how to deal with these quirks. Other reviewers report that the screen is a fingerprint magnet and that is dead accurate. I will try the Zagg screen protector to eliminate this issue. [...] To reiterate, my bigggest complaint about the Harmony One is that it's like trying to hold a fresh trout with WD 40 on your fingers - it justs want to flop out of your hand.
In summary, the Harmony One is an impressive unit, it will run just about any equipment and the learning curve for programming is a function of how complex the system you are trying to control. There are a LOT of sub functions that require some skill and a potentially high learning curve so don't think you will be able to set this unit up for a 6 piece system in 30 minutes. It took me 3 to 4 hours to really get the programming accurate and I'm still tweaking it from time to time. The rechargeable cradle is nice and works well. The color touch screen is bright and all the keys light up which is really nice at night but it's easy to hit the wrong button when you fumble with the unit which is inevitable. $200 is a lot of dough for a remote but compared to the URC remotes which cost at least $200 plus the dealer programming fee of $125+, it's a bargain. If you are truly a tech junkie and have some computer ability, the Harmony One is a good choice.
Update - I've had this remote about one month and my opinion of this unit is not as favorable as it was initially. The commands work sporadically and I've reprogrammed it a few times to get it to behave. Simply stated, it's not the remote I reach for regularly because it's so slippery, it's very touchy and it's not as intuitive as the URC MX 700 I have had for a few years.
It's often not that hard to get a remote where you can enter a code number and it'll control a number of devices. Some can learn from existing remotes. We had a One-for-All Kameleon for some years, but it was kludgey, couldn't really be customized, I was never able to get downloaded remote programs to work on it, and it ate batteries like candy.
Meanwhile the remotes on our coffee table proliferated like a warren of rabbits. One for the TV, another for the AV Receiver, still others for the cable box, Roku, CinemaTube media player, Playstation 3, Yamaha region-free DVD changer... Aaaaaaaaaaaaaah! TOO. MANY. REMOTES!
I received the Harmony One and its PS3 bluetooth-to-infrared adapter accessory as an early holiday gift. (Actually, my spouse told me to go buy it.) Now it's still early for a real review, but my first impressions are very positive, with a few small criticisms.
- Initial programming can be intimidating to the non-technical. But if you follow the program wizards, you should be able to get the remote up and running with reasonably complete functionality within a couple hours.
- The in-box printed documentation, while slick, is in my opinion extremely inadequate. There are some important details, information, and instructions which just can't really be figured out from the multi-lingual pictograms and declarative sentences. I'll cover a few of these below in Helpful Hints.
- The in-cradle charging display is totally misleading, and a bad design mistake (also covered below), made worse by misleading documentation.
- Should be more flexibility in creating 'Activities', other than just the single generic 'Utility' choice. Should be given options for custom Activity icons, too.
- Wish there were more custom icon options for the touchscreen buttons; at present, you can only do TV channels.
- I also wish there was some way to mix Activities and Devices. Sometimes you just want to control the one device, and it takes a few steps to make this happen. Also, as people have noted, Devices are sorted alphabetically; be nice to be able to sort them as one likes.
- Not inexpensive. Especially if you add the PS3 adapter. Not a remote you want young children or clumsy drunken party-attending adults to be fooling with.
- Sleek, well-designed physically, comfortable to hold in the hand. Buttons are well-placed and easy to reach, and all of them are of a good size. Haven't had a remote this comfortable since we retired our old Tivo.
- Backlighting and touchscreen lighting are very nice. The touchscreen itself seems responsive, but not overly so (sensitivity is also configurable).
- I like the tilt sensor for turning it on when you pick up the remote, unlike our old Kameleon which flares like a blue nova if you even breathe at it.
- Between Logitech's fairly comprehensive online database, plus a few missing buttons I had Harmony learn, this is the first remote I've owned which has been able to learn every single remote we currently have.
- I very much like the customization possibilities, in setting or reprogramming buttons to do whatever you want, and it's wonderful being able to program every single button on the remote for multiple functions. I haven't even begun to explore multi-function sequences. However, I wish there was a more advanced interface available, and not forcing nearly everything to go through the wizard.
- No problems having the Harmony learn new commands from our other remotes (I needed to add some buttons from the Sony Bravia remote -- most notably the number pad 'period' and 'enter' keys.)
- The battery goes in with the blank, white side up (they really should print 'this side up' and an insertion arrow on it). Push it in until the back edge drops into place; there's a little spring in the back of the battery enclosure, providing resistance for the last quarter inch. To remove the battery, lift the edge slightly and the spring should pop it out.
- When you put the Harmony One in the cradle, if it's charging, the touchscreen shows what looks like a 1/4 filled battery with a lightning bolt through it. The ONLY thing this indicates is that the Harmony is in fact receiving power. Otherwise ignore this static icon display, as it in no way shows actual battery charge amount. If you pick up the remote, on the touchscreen in the upper right corner, above the date/time, there's a tiny cell-phone style battery bar. Pretty small -- but that's where you can find the actual battery level. Normal charging time to full from out-of-the-box seems to be about 4 hours. Supposedly there's enough charge straight off to do the basic programming set-up...but I decided to wait a while, just in case.
- For learning from other remotes: The Harmony needs to be connected to your computer and the Logitech program running. Follow the prompts to add a button (there's online help if you're not sure how to do this). Note that the receiver for learning new codes is at the BOTTOM of the Harmony, not the top as is usual for other learning remotes. Also, the guide wizard says it may take up to 30 seconds to learn the function, but this doesn't mean mash the button and hold it. Press and release the button to learn from as you normally would use it. If the program doesn't pick it up, wait a couple seconds and press it again. The program itself usually will tell you if it's getting a good signal or not. Once learned, you can assign the new function to any button on the remote.
Would I get this remote again? Yes. "One remote to rule them all", as I've heard many times. Would I recommend it to a friend? Also yes.
Would I recommend it for the technologically challenged? Sort of... this might work out best if you or someone you know who is tech-savvy did the set-up and programming for them. However, for example, my spouse has been so intimidated by all our remotes and the complicated steps necessary to do almost anything with our set-up here, essentially I always run the equipment when we watch anything. I do think she'd be a little put off by the programming of the Harmony, since it can get complicated fast. She nevertheless likes the Harmony because now she can just point and shoot. "Watch TV" -- boom, done. "Watch Media Player" -- done. Play a movie, ditto.
