I've had Harmony remotes for a long time and I've never had a problem with them. They are easy to set up and does pretty much everything I want it to do... At least until this last one. They've tried to get fancy and ended up screwing up the remote. The button on either sides of the screens which I use to change activities like "watch a movie" to "watch TV" are now changed to a TOUCH SCREEN. The stupidity of this decision is incomprehensible. Before, I just had to feel my way through the remote and knew exactly which one to press. I never had to actually look at the remote. Now, I have to look at it and the worst thing is that if I grab the remote and accidentally touch that screen, it changes what I am watching and switches input. This is clearly a place where they tried to add new technology and it ruined the product.

edit: I'm going to put this onto the amazon review.

Update:

I bought the Logitech 915-000194 Harmony , which is designed to work with an Iphone. I wasn't planning on using the Iphone as a remote but its nice to use for more in-depth functions that the remote cannot do or that you did not program into the remote.

The remote is perfect for everyday use and feels very nice in the hand. Its the only one I tried that worked perfectly with the new Comcast X1 box. As you mentioned, very easy to program and works like a charm.

If youre looking for a very simple, affordable and sharp looking remote, consider the Logitech 915-000194 Harmony .
