What about reviews?
BAD: 1] The remote does not sit comfortably on the cradle since the cradle is also the charger and if it doesn’t sit precisely on it, it will not charge itself properly. If you can tap the table next to the remote and it will set it off charging.
2] The remote lags when pushed a button.
GOOD: 1]The keys are MUCH better located and logical.
2]Set up is programmed via the Harmony website. You need a good working knowledge of your devices and the functions you want the 880 to perform. But after this somewhat tedious process, the 880 performs beautifully.
3]It is rechargeable, which means no digging for batteries when it all of a sudden runs out.
4] This remote can control up to 15 devices, like for all the remote-controlled devices in home – all the tvs, TiVos, DVD players, Cable Boxes, and even the surround sound box thing.
You need to connect it to your PC with a USB cable to program it, and it is a snap. If you have the model numbers for your devices, which are usually found somewhere on the device itself, then it is a real no-brainer. Logitech had all of the devices give the setup program model numbers for in their database, and it will quickly set those up. If you couldn’t find the model number give the manufacturer name, and if you have remote for that device then you need to push a few specific buttons on the device’s remote so it could learn it, and it will figure out the best model match for that device within few minutes.
