The Remote is beautiful, nice Color Display, great Online Programming concept and is fairly easy to configure. My only real bad experience was the installation of the provided software on CD. I installed it on a Windows 2000 Desktop Computer and it corrupted some files or Registry settings. What happen was when I finished the install it prompted for a Reboot System and when it started back up, I could not activate 'ctrl, alt & delete', I had no Mouse or Keyboard functionality. I tried everything to fix it; reboot, reboot into Safe Mode, swapped USB ports, boot to"last known good configuration", but nothing worked. I called Logitech Support to see if this was a known problem, but the technician was not very helpful. He was trying to fix my system via a script he was following and we went in circles for over an hour. I didn't have the Windows install disk to reinstall windows for the fix, so the technician stopped there and asked me to call back when I was able to locate it. I didn't mention to the technician that I do PC Support for a living, but it was a frustrating experience with Logitech Support. I setup my Win2k Laptop with the software, but it was a downloaded version from Logitech site....didn't want to take a chance again with the install disk sent with the Remote. I retrieved my Windows disk and did the reinstall and everything is working ok again, but what a mess this would have been for the average PC User.... I still have some issues with programming some of my Media Components, but that may be due to Logitechs Database and the age or complexity of my systems.....

I've been a friend of Logitech for 23 years. Whilst doing FCC testing in the early '90's we used Logitech mice as peripherals because they were the quietest. They could take a beating too. This device is today's version of their understanding of the human form. The buttons are all within a thumb or finger's reach, regardless of function. The method of programming the remote is also intuitive and easy to carry out. It's great to finally have one device control everything I've got!

A lot of setup time, but worth it.

on 6/24/2008

If you spend the time to think out your actions that you want this remote to do, it will work great. You'll spend a fair amount of time with the setup. The program for the setup isn't that great either, opting for a mostly web-based type experience. On the plus side, they keep your settings on their server so if you have to rebuild your machine, you don't loose your remote settings. You'll probably end up tweaking the settings a couple of times but once you have it right, you'll be able to truly use this remote as an all in one solution. I've got this set up to run systems in multiple rooms. The range on the IR is good. the buttons take some getting used to but you quickly get the hang of it. Read More
