Hmm not liking the lack of display for custom buttons on this one. Think I'd stick with the older models...

Logitech are strange. Why take a step backwards and include no screen as even the cheaper older models have a screen.:?

If you read their site and some of the early reviews you will see that their intention is to reduce the 30% of users who find the existing functionality daunting.

Too early to say whether they have been successful. Certainly I find the additional screen options worthwhile on the 555,

I agree with what others say, why take a step backwards and make a unit less functional, this will be as weak as the One For All Remotes, or any of the cheapo Aldi or Lidl Programmable ones.

To try and place a function to a key rather than assignable text custom buttons means the end user needs a memory of an elephant if they have a decent number of devices.

Such as things like "direct mode" on an AV Amplifier, imagine having to assign that to the "red button" or something, before you know it you will have a multitude of devices all having functions mapped to the most illogical keys.

Total step backwards, cold from me.

Only 4 devices too, if you want one of these go for the One For All Kameleon 5 in 1 at Play.com for £16.99, does the same job and is nearly half the price.

£7.22 delivery as well!!!!!

This retains the online set-up and database of the more advanced models and activity based programming. It is intended for the less tech savvy user who typically would value simplicity more than complex functionality. It looks nicely made and suitable perhaps for an elderly person who in any case could not read the screen on the alternative models. I don't think that the comparison with basic all-in-one remotes is appropriate. This will continue to assign buttons according to activity and should be much easier to use if Logitech are successful in their design strategy.

If you need "direct mode" on an amp then you need a higher model, simple as that. This is for those that have a TV and DVD player and maybe a sky box. And that's it. For £30 you can't complain and as the activities functions remain its not too bad.

It will still be and shoulders over the dumb one for all remotes.

The Harmony 555 is on Amazon for £40 at the moment, I think that is a better buy.

Disagree, for £37+ with postage charge, as someone has already said, the Harmony 555 is only £40 delivered at Amazon and is head and shoulders above this and One For All.

You don't need a higher model to map a key function to a key, however as said it makes things more complicated if you do not have a display with text definable buttons. So in my opinion for the price its going for its totally a step backwards as for price even it doesnt compare with its OneForAll rivals.

Just bought a 525 from play for £25, and pleased as punch with it. I agree lack of screen is puzzling. It runs.

Dreambox 500c
Pioneer AV amp
LG LCD
Xbox 360
HTPC (MediaPortal)

web setup is easy, initial setup 10mins, then about 20 tweaking.

the RRP is £30, so how is this a good deal ?
(infact cheaper in continental europe because its 30Euro there!)

I thought it worth posting because it is more expensive elsewhere at present - £59.99 at Play.com. It is an interesting alternative to the other widely posted older models as suggested in the debate here.

I expect the price to drop when it is widely available but for the moment hopefully this may help someone avoid Play,com's inflated price.
