Control up to 15 entertainment devices with this Logitech Harmony Ultimate One 915-000224 universal remote, which features a 2.4" color touch screen that simplifies option selection. Favorite-channel icons let you quickly access frequently used channels.

I have never written a review before, but this remote deserves one. We had four remotes to watch TV or watch a movie . And now just one. It is AWESOME. I was worried the set up would be complicated or not work. However Harmony's web site was very easy to follow and simply walks you through the whole set up step by step. It walks you through the set up of activities and your favorite TV Channels. If I can do it anyone can!
I was so impressed that it motivated me to write this review.
I would highly recommend this remote!!!

Have been using this remote for about four days. Cost prohibitive to some, but has made using our entertainment center so much easier to use. We went from 8 remotes, down to ONE. It even controls our ceiling fan. GET OUT OF THE CITY. Highly recommended!!!!!

I think Logitech took a step backwards with this
Posted by: TeresaLT from: Tampa, FL on
This is my third Logitech Harmony remote. I don't care for the design of this one compared to previous models. Eliminate the number pad on a remote ? really?? Favorites are a very nice feature, but don't replace the need for a number pad and I don't care for the one offered on the touch screen. (my husband HATES it). Setup was tough since I already had the 'software' installed on my laptop and the the packinging/instructions did not make it clear that you needed to download and install NEW software from a different vendor. Took a phone call to support to get it cleared up. I find it very odd (and a poor design decision) that you can't manage all of the features from the software. Some things you have to do on the remote..some things in the software. CONFUSING! All in all - I just don't care for this release which is a shame because I have loved this line of removtes. Once I got the proper software installed - setup was easy and straightforward as I have come to expect from Logitech. The remote has been mostly reliable and has mostly worked properly. I wish I had a new purchase my old Harmony One...

Really disappointed after loving previous models like the Harmony One. Doesn't hold a charge very long, will stop sending out signals for no apparent reason, and the software seems more buggy than earlier versions.

Don't buy this
Posted by: fenderslim from: on
This remote is not user friendly. It is not ergonomic, and you have to use both hands to get it to work properly. The numbers on the screen do not always respond properly, and it will end up doing something you didn't plan on. The buttons are too close together causing incorrect inputs if you're not careful. If I still had the box, it would be returned by now. Get one without the screen input. Buttons only.

I purchased the Harmony Ultimate One to replace my aging Harmony 1100. I like the one handed form factor of the Ultimate One, the ease of set up and use. One remote to control all of your home theater devices. The battery typically lasts me 2-3 days. For some reason I remember my Harmony 1100 lasting me a bit longer than that, but it is not a deal breaker. I just needed to train myself to remember to drop it on the charger more frequently. I chose the Ultimate One over the more expensive Harmony Ultimate because I do not have any of my devices hidden in cabinets that would require the IR blasters or the Harmony Hub.

Great for first time users

Great remote that'll control everything in your house including tv, cable box, receiver, bluray player, xbox, fan, ac... just about anything with infrared sensor. Only negative is I'm upgrading from older Harmony One remote and this is a huge step backwards in my opinion. I don't understand why Logitech decided to change the layout and place the DVR controls on the top. Good luck using those controls without hitting the screen, unless you got huge banana hands. Another negative is the short battery life. My old Harmony One averages 3-4 weeks between charge, this new remote lasts about 3-4 days between charges.
Still, it is a fantastic remote and I would buy another one immediately if this one crapped out.

Works well, changes take some time to get used to
Posted by: PivotHeaven from: on
I had a prior version of this remote which was showing its age, so I decided to buy this new version. It is smaller and charges in an upright stand. It takes up less space, which is a benefit. The remote is a little awkward to handle at first, but I've gotten used to it for most features. The one item I wish were different was easier access to a numeric keypad to go to a channel on my satellite receiver box. The numeric keypad is there, just takes a couple clicks to get it showing.

Is a smaller unit then the first one.
Posted by: Doodles from: Tennessee on
we had the first unit which had the number pad, this unit does not have the number pad, or channel search by "page". It does have a "favorite" channel reserve, so is just another way of searching, but still like entering the channels by numbers.
