  • Getting Close To The Ultimate Universal Remote Control

    Mar 30, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Simplifies all the devices into one.
    Cons: Still not ready for prime time for most of us because of complexity and price.

    Summary: Handheld remote controls are, like the VCR and its derivatives, something our kids take for granted but something that came into many of our lives when we reached adulthood. I know this dates me (doesn't everything now?), but there was a time when, if ... read more

  • The best activity-based remote

    Apr 23, 2011 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy programming. Tactile activity selection. Durable. Reasonable price.
    Cons: No significant issues.

    Summary: If you are considering your first activity-based remote, the Logitech Harmony 880 is the only real option. What is an activity-based remote? It groups a series of remote control commands into categories (known as activities) that allow you to turn on ... read more

    Mar 20, 2009 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy setup
    one handed functioning
    rechargeable
    plenty of devices
    Cons: None found yet, at least at this price.

    Summary: My wife was complaining about not being able to get anything to work with our new system.  Yet, she was not willing to have me pay the $250 for a Harmony One.  Some reconditioned 880s were put on sale at Amazon for under $90, so I jumped.  ... read more

  • This Remote Is Awesome!!!

    Jan 24, 2009 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: One remote works all of your components. 
    Cons: The initial programming of the remote on Logitech's website. 

    Summary: This remote is awesome. I saw this remote in Best Buy. The salesman demonstrated it for me and it looked promising. However, I was skeptical of the price, and I really didn't think it would operate all of the functions of my home theatre system ... read more

  • Very good investment

    May 12, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great for replacing all your remotes, easy to use.
    Cons: None to speak of.

    Summary: The 880 can control virtually any of your audio/video components (called “devices”). Setup is pretty simple. You install Logitech’s software, which connects to the Internet and accesses Logitech’s database once you set up an account. Before running ... read more

  • Such a thing as a required novelty item? Great addition to your home theater

  • Nice features, rocker switches wear out

    Feb 21, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Slim, easy navigation, family-friendly, backlit, intuitive interface.
    Cons: Finessing detailed programming a chore, pricey, mechanical buttons may fail over time.

    Summary: I bought this model in 2006, and it was indeed a big step up from a cluster of single-use remotes. The 880 was my replacement for a Sony Remote Commander AVR-1100, which is a big, boxy remote control with a huge backlit LCD screen with dozens of soft ... read more

  • Easy...to...use !

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easiest universal remote to program I have every used. Period.
    Cons: Build quality may be suspect; keys are small and lack tactile feedback.

    Summary: Firstly, let me get the obvious out of the way - no universal remote is as good as the original unit that came with your component. But, the 880 comes close. The 880 is a replacement for my three year old Sony Commander (the brick with the ... read more

    Pros: ease of programming!
    Cons: Buttons a little small.

    Pros: easy to set up. do not need to buy batteries. works for many appliances.
    Cons: does not always work properly. expensive

    Summary: In terms of functionality and performance this is a decent remote control but not sure if its worth the price. It seems pretty simple to configure as you connect it to your computer and enter the details of the devices it needs to control. I guess the ... read more

  • Simply amazing.

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Replaces all remotes, inexpensive for what it does. Easy to use, setup and customise.
    Cons: Docking cradle.

    Summary: Simply the best remote I have ever owned. Easy to use for the family, quick set up and easy to follow guides help. Sure, a PC and net connection is required but, most people have this. Also, once it's set up, you don't need to hook it up to the PC ... read more

  • A True Universal Remote...that isn't

    Jun 15, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: extremely flexible - lets you customize devices, activities, and commands for the LCD
    Cons: Learning function fails to learn, programming software unreliable and slow.

    Summary: I got the Harmony 880 because, like a lot of other people I know, my home theatre system was running away with me and I was juggling remotes with alarming frequency. The biggest problem was the sheer number of functions that 8 or 9 remotes can have. ... read more

  • It's a good start, but only a start.

    May 1, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: - not that hard to program - works most of the time
    Cons: - poor value for cost - only does basic things easily (on/off/set inputs) - buggy

    Summary: My system is pretty basic. TV, AV Receiver, DVD player, VCR, TiVo. Why others have enjoyed this remote, I'm not sure. The siren song of a single remote is good, but for this price, it needs to be far better in execution than the Harmony 880. Maybe ... read more

  • Best and coolest remote I've ever used

    Mar 11, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Functional, easy to program, looks neat
    Cons: Expensive, takes a long time to execute long macros

    Summary: I bought this remote to use with my new TV setup, figuring that an advanced learning remote would be easier to use with a DVD, cable box, DVR, AV receiver, and TV. Boy, was I right in this case. The Harmony 880 makes it so simple to set up advanced ... read more

    Pros: PC/Internet Interface Motion sensor turns on backlight Ergonomics Controls everything
    Cons: a bit difficult to "feel" your way around in the dark just a nit-pick

    Summary: Coming from a Pronto TSU 3000, I wanted a universal remote that would control everything without having to look at a touch screen, hover my finger over a button, aim at the gear and press. What I liked about the Pronto was that it is fully customizable, ... read more

    Pros: Easy to set up, very user friendly
    Cons: A little (sometimes A LOT) tricky to get into its charging base

    Summary: If you watched the first season if The Osbournes on MTV, you may remember a scene where a pharmaceutically addled Ozzy struggled to use his TV using a remote control so bulky it needed to be handled with both hands. As someone who last year ... read more
