Terrible, a step backwards from Logitech, if anyone can get a cheap 515 or 525 instead I would advise that. Lack of LCD Display with customisable named buttons is what puts this back in One For All remote territory rather than the usefulness Logitech had of putting titles to programmed buttons rather than having the memory of an elephant in remembering that you programmed the button red as "angle select" etc.

I have a 555 I think it was and the configuration you can do with the software etc is great. I don't however find the "one button to power on several things" useful.

Logitech have very good support for the devices new and old and you can still learn commands too. (presuming this is the same).

Not sure about this one as the 555 has an LCD and stuff so can't comment on these besides what I have said.

I would agree with Cicbuff though. Pay the extra for the LCD as you can edit the display names for devices as he mentioned.

This still has the ability to learn commands, as does the One For All Remote range, as said though its the lack of an LCD that is the real achilles heel with this as with the OFA remotes.

Imagine setting up a DVD device on the unit and having to program something like "Angle Select" which isn't a regular key on a Universal remote to something like the "Red Button", rather than simply having the customisable buttons over pages within the LCD display with whatever titles you want to give them.

It really is a terrible step back for Logitech, for me personally. Having had other Universal Remotes both the customisable buttons in the display as well as PC Programming is what puts Logitech way above anything else. This range of remotes have removed one of those advantages.

The 515 has been this price on play previously, would recommend holding out for another of those.

Only a tenner more than a basic OFA from Lidl/Aldi, so OK value, I guess (the USB/web programming is easier than a OFA, and trivially repeatable if you need a new remote later), but the 525 for £29.99 from Richer Sounds was better value, as it had the display. Shame they seem to have sold out of those now!

Everyone's beaten me to it. Find a 515, 525 or 555 if you can. They were the last of gthe "real" Harmony remotes before Logitech bought out the brand and developed their own replacements.

These have the same issue as all the other "One for All" remotes. Even if you can programme the buttons to do what you want, you can never remember which button you've set to do what function.... Those with the LCD display are just wonderful by comparison.

No they weren't, they were the first products AFTER the rot started to set in.

The curvy ones like the 855 were the last of the real Harmonys and they came in Logitech branded packaging towards the end.

Can you program this by pointing your current remote at it? Or do you have to use one of the preset codes?

I quite agree. I have a Harmony 885 and a Harmony One. I recently bought a 525. What a pile of junk. Poor build quality, poor backlight, etc. I wish I had bought more Harmony Ones when they were £70.

Logitech or not, they still actually manufacture ones with LCD Screens, just now the pricing has gone crazy and this budget one without the LCD Screen is practically as useless as an Aldi Remote.

It accepts programming from your original remotes, yes. Unlike One For All Remotes though the database for Logitech Remotes is online through software connected via USB to your remote control, it is far more customisable, particularly with the Harmony range that have LCD Screens.

Bought a 650 from richer sounds and it's one of the best pieces of electronic equipment i've ever bought and believe me i've got a lot of electronic equipment. Worth every penny of it's discounted price.

I think the comments on this remote are somewhat unfair. Something like this is ideal for people who are only interested in the basic features of their remotes and just want to combine the lot into one. Personally I have the 525 and love it, but in truth rarely ever use the buttons accessible via the display. I know for a fact the majority of my friends and family would not be interested in the extra complexity offered by the screen. At the end of the day they can keep the original remotes in a nearby drawer for the rare occasion they need those buttons.

This remote will be far easier to configure than a cheapo from the supermarkets, will be more comfortable to hold and last longer. Prior to my 525 I had a Sony all in one remote, and it didn't have the activity concept, if I wanted to watch a DVD I kept having to change between the TV, DVD and Amp functions to get everything switched on, in the right mode and then play the DVD. It was a ball ache.

The bottom end Harmonys still support the excellent functionality provided by the underlying software that is present throughout the range. However, they do lack the physical attributes of the top end models; good build quality, good backlight that comes on automatically when you tilt the remote, a re-charging cradle, positive feeling buttons, well designed button layout, soft buttons displayed on-screen. I guess you get what you pay for.
