I have a 650 that controls five devices in my bedroom and it's really an excellent remote, even if it is quite large and makes no attempt at hiding the fact that it's meant to replace a handful of proprietary remotes. So why not opt for the same solution in the living room? Because I have no fewer than 9 devices to control in that setting (the 650 supports a max of 5). None are positioned off in a media cabinet or otherwise distantly located - so although I do have a couple of RF controlled devices, I don't require that feature. I do want the remote to switch everything to my RF device inputs though, and let my RF remotes take it from there.
The design of a piece of technology matters to me. After all, would I consider a TV for my living room if it performed awesomely but looked like a poorly conceived interpretation of a modern electronic appliance? I would not. This is not to say that form precedes function in my buying decisions, but it is most certainly a factor. I no more want 8 oddly shaped remotes sitting out in plain view in my living room than I want one mammoth ugly universal one. I like that this handily replaces all of those in my array and does it with some style.
Setup: The whole process including collecting make and model numbers and installing a firmware update was roughly 40 minutes. That's really not bad considering the 9 devices added and 6 activities configured. The web based application is pretty intuitive and straight forward. Full disclosure for whatever it's worth: I've spent part of my professional career designing web application software. Google Chrome is my default browser and there were several instances where something disconnected and reconnected my remote. It reconnected within seconds so although that's definitely buggy behavior, it didn't amount to much of a headache. The sync kicked off and completed successfully each of the several times I executed it. If anything, my background brings some empathy for having to keep up with a constantly evolving grab bag of available browser types and versions. Not to mention Silverlight, which is sort of a confounding choice...the result is a simple and nice looking web interface...but not completely stable given all the complaints on this site.
There was only one device that wasn't recognized correctly without intervention on my part and even that was handled very nicely. My amplifier is an older Bose system and when I added it, there was a warning that there are several versions and that the most common one would be used. The amp failed to respond successfully after the first sync, so I reconnected the Harmony and the application guided me through a process where I pointed the original Bose remote at the 'learning' receiver of the Harmony Touch and repeatedly pressed the power button. The software recognized the signal, selected a new Bose version and after the follow up sync, everything was working without a hitch. I fined it quite impressive that Logitech's database so thoroughly captures the features of such a large cross section of remote controlled devices and maps the functions of each so well to the Touch.
Function: I'll come back and update after I've spent more time with it, but initial impressions are quite good. I'm controlling a lot here - a remote controlled HDMI switch is also in the mix and so the connections routed through that and then to the TV are enough to make most of my guest's head spin. This remote brings order to the chaos.
There was an initial gripe that I think could have been preempted by a better design choice. The home and favorites icons just above the touch screen don't blatantly hint that they are actually directly controlling functions instead of hinting at something on the screen. I mistakenly hit the favorites icon the first time I used the remote and until I realized that the home icon is the only way to leave that favorites screen, I felt like I had entered a cul de sac with no obvious exit. Page 2 of the user guide explains these keys...so had I cracked that puppy first I'd have saved five seconds of trial by error education.
My perspective is that of someone who's very comfortable with electronics of all kinds and complexity levels. That may well bias my opinion that the setup was highly intuitive and the remote is well engineered...but that friends, is the straight dope.
But honestly I prefer the older (880) remote - this unit has streamlined the unit and eliminated a number of "hard" buttons. I find that the older unit provided me with more flexibility without wading thru levels of touch-screen menus.
On the plus side:
Most of the button placement is good - if FF, RW, Stop, and Play can be used on the touch screen that eliminates the biggest "issue"
I've never run out of battery even without the remote being charged for a couple of days
The charging base is better than the horizontal charging base - charging time doesn't seem to be any issue.
The battery does seem to be replaceable but you have to take the unit apart instead of the battery door found on other previous models - I think that the cost would be higher too given that it's not a cell phone battery but if my 880 is any indication battery lifespan shouldn't be an issue as I haven't had to replace that one with over 5 years of use.
On the minus side:
Software download and install time and ease of use could be better - I have mostly Mac in the house but used a Windows PC Laptop because of Silverlight requirements and other negative reviews
The tapering at the top of the remote isn't ergonomically correct - it makes my hand ache after an hour or so of use - I think if the function hard buttons can be used via the touch screen that'll address it.
The cost is a bit high - if this could be in the $150 area I think Logitech would sell many more - where they probably do sell a lot would be as an add-on item to a $2500 TV purchased from a brick and mortar store.
I'm not sure if you can re-arrange the order of activities - my defaulted to Watch DVD which is about the 3rd most common activity for us - I seem to recall that you can but it's not intuitive.
The PC software in general isn't as intuitive as the previous generation and is slower. I get what they were after but it seems they've dumbed it down too far - I think even Fisher-Price would laugh at the interface - not everything needs to be a drag and drop icon.
Chanel management - selection and rearrangement is cumbersome - I hope to only have to do this once in a while - using the remote itself is far easier and could be faster.
