The price is only few quids less compare to Amazon, but still better than nothing.
Don't forget Quidco.

You need to amend the price......you can't include Quidco in the final price.

£88.42 including delivery - same price as Amazon.

I am waiting to buy one of these - anyone know of a cheaper price? I know it has been as low as £80 ish some time ago but cannot seen to beat this price at the moment.

Dabs are great to deal with =]

I just got one from Amazon.co.uk for about £84 and that was the cheapest i found it.

Great product but does have some flaws, and just a heads up give a lot longer then 30 minutes for the setup if you have a home cinima system... Also will not control the PS3 as it is Blu Tooth...

Distinctly average price as you cannot include Quidco.

That is meant to be humourous? :oops:

Dabs is BT, and every bit as troublesome, if not more so!

Is this more than just the epitome of laziness?

I was gonna get this because I liked the idea of these "activities", but I got a 525 first just to try it - I think I must be missing something?
It turns all my equipment on and after messing about with it a bit it even finds all the right channels. Half hour later and I have a few custom sequences to turn down the TV and turn up the amp.
Now, when I press a button during an activity it changes the right equipment (ie volume controls the amp etc) - and I suppose thats a nice feature. But really... £88?!

The worst bit for me was I didn't do my research... I had hoped I could program it to make my Sony DVD player multi-region - but I haven't yet found a way to do that!

So, what have I missed here? Perhaps this remote is just a statement that tells everyone you have enough money to waste £88 on a remote control? And, oh yeah, it does look nice!

Don't get me wrong, I'm not a tight @ss - I have lots of perfectly good gadgets just sat in boxes to prove that!

Not voted on price... it's been this price a while and I would expect items like this to reduce as consumer spending grinds to a halt.
Also, the 885 is around the same price (£87.81) at eBuyer - doesn't look as good but is similar spec (no touch screen, but does have real buttons for red,green, yellow, blue) and costs more than this One from Logitech directly.

Please don't abuse me for this post - I really would like to know the point of the remote so that I can talk myself into getting this one.

I have to agree - I have never seen the point in these expensive all-in-one remotes other than as a status symbol....but as you say, I would also be open to the benefits of this if there are any other than "less remotes"...

This is the one of the main advantages of these remotes. Do you not find that useful?

You mean you want to program a button press sequence to make your DVD player multi-region?

I have owned the 525, 885 and now i own the One. They are seriously some of the best things i have spent money on. I have 12 remotes that i needed to replace in my living room, now everything is controlled by just the one. Even the missus can use it.

The 885 is a good remote, especially the coloured hard buttons, but the screen quality on the One is far better. I still use the 885, but that has been retired to the bedroom

You seem to have the remote set up, and using it properly, so im not sure why you cant see the benefit of it!?

I'm rather bitter about this. Bought an 885 on Amazon Marketplace that turned out to be second hand. I only discovered this after it started falling to pieces. The mute button fell out (and was tiny and instantly lost) and the sensor that turns it on when you pick it up failed.

I called Logitech to sort it out. They said that their warranty didn't apply as it was non-transferrable. Can't get any response from the person who sold it to me and Logitech will neither entertain the idea of a repair or selling me a replacement button.

Buyer beware of such a **** company if you ask me.

I'm not sure either! Maybe cos I'm only replacing 6 remotes and I only really ever need to use 3 at a time.
I find it quirky - almost clever - the way the activities and relative buttons work. So yeah, I can sorta see an advantage.
For me - and I guess this is subjective for all of us - I'm struggling to justify the cost.
The big thing that almost swings it for me is the Customer Service. The feeling that, if it breaks in the first 2 years I'll just get a brand new one sent to me - that's service. But that also makes me think about what a rip off they must be - that Logitech can afford to just send out replacements so easily?!

The region hack might be possible. The Sony can't be hacked using it's own remote, it needs a service remote. But you can program the keys on a Universal remote to do it using 3 digit codes - instructions for a one-4-all type remote with a Magic button are easy to find on the 'net. But I haven't yet worked out how to do this with the Harmony. Not a problem cos I can just buy the relevant remote - and then I can prolly teach the Harmony the commands (though this would be pointless once I have done the hack!).

Once again I have strayed off subject and droned on - must be a sign that I don't have enough work!!

I used my laptop to hack my Sony DVD player...got a wee util off the net that booted it up into dos and used the infra red port to send the signal.

Exact key sequences etc. will vary depending on the DVD player, of course...but I fond using a lap top was a lot easier than universal and programmable remotes. May not be for your model, of course.

Yeah, I got all that stuff together on my laptop (used a true DosBox shell thing cos I don't have a floppy!) tried sending the commands using all the different com ports and then noticed that the IrDa device wasn't showing up in windows devices anywhere!! :oops:
Another 2 hours of my life that I'll never see again!!

PS - I'm not a muppet, honest! I'm just a bit hasty sometimes!! :w00t:

Just a warning for anyone looking at getting this remote. The Harmony One does not have physical coloured buttons which are used quite a bit by my wife and Sky+.
I am looking at getting the 885 as it seems to be the best one under £100 which has the coloured buttons although I am now seriously looking at the cheaper 525 as it is quite a bit cheaper and it probably does everything I need anyway.
