Best Yet...good buy...Logitech is still the king of high end remotes....The full functionality of a Harmony remote is there when using the cell phone feature, but getting that app up and properly running has not only proved annoying for someone pretty-well versed in these things but also tedious and time-consuming to actually just grab your phone and launch an app for a single or two missing features from the actual remote.
This Logitech Harmony 915-000194 smart control lets you use your compatible Apple® iPhone®, iPod® touch or iPad® or Android device to control up to 8 components for simple, multifunction use.
A breeze!...IT's good...The luxury of having one remote to control everything is something everyone should have....Add to the fact that a touch screen is not as accurate at buttons you press (as on the Elite remote) and the power drain on the IOS devices while using the Harmony app I bit the bullet and purchased the Elite Remote which is bundled with a hub and 2 mini IR blasters.
Designed for use with a variety home automation and entertainment devices, this Logitech Harmony Elite 915-000256 remote allows easy control through closed cabinets or walls for flexible use. The remote works with Alexa, and the Harmony mobile app supports simple on-to-go operation.
Loving it....Its great....Overall this product is worth the buy but there are a few nuisances that I do wish LG would address including button that stick, weird activity when used with a Roku, and a few glitches during the setup process that required some patience to work through....The biggest disadvantage (if you use the Home Automation) is that if you create a lot of activities, you end up with a never ending list of things you don't need, because they are automated by the activity itself.I own both the Harmony Home and Ultimate and I am much happier with the non-touch screen remote.
Designed for use with home entertainment and home automation devices, this Logitech Harmony Ultimate Home 915-000237 remote integrates a full-color touch screen, motion sensing and vibration feedback for a seamless, intuitive Harmony control experience.
Love it...Great buy...Logitech even includes the ability to upgrade from the previous generation like the Harmony one if you happen to have one of those that someone shattered the screen of....The Harmony 950 is a great remote, it just did not do one of the main things I need in a remote -- control devices behind a closed cabinet door.

Keep this Logitech universal remote ready for action with the included rechargeable battery and charging station.
Loved it!...Best ever...I simply entered the model numbers of my devices and Logitech worked through the rest of the programming and automatically worked out the combo functions like turning on the TV and soundbar, changing the TV input and turning on the gaming console when I want to play Xbox....No reason to use the TV remote, no reason to use the cable remote, no reason to use the sound bar remote, no reason to use the blue-ray player remote; not four (4) remotes laying around, now you have just One (1), the Harmony Remote.
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.
So cool!...works well...I like it because I can use it with my Philips Lux light bulbs so when I select the Watch a Movie button, everything comes on like it should and the lights automatically dim....I have a large multicomponent system and it handles it well, assignable buttons using the smart phone app were crucial to add discreet settings to enable changing soundfields and other advanced av options .
The included Harmony Hub relays commands from this Logitech 915-000239 Home Control remote or Harmony app to a wide variety of home devices, whether for home entertainment or home automation, using IR, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and more.
Great buy....Very Nice...I have had trouble syncing this in with my home system and sometimes the Harmony remote will do what it is supposed to but go back to the system and say that certain commands don't work....I'm well informed when it comes to electronics and this item needs some avg Joe's input on how they see themselves using it, this item requires to much verbal structure in its commands for Avg.
Easily manage your home automation system while you're on the go with this Logitech Harmony 915-000238 hub, which allows you to control up to 8 connected devices via a compatible Bluetooth-enabled Apple® iOS or Android smartphone.
nice buy...I like....I've a newer Vizio TV, an 18 month old high end Samsung Bluray player, an 5 year old Tivo Premier HD DVR, and a 3 year old HP computer....This particular remote is going to be good for most home theater applications, unless you have a ton of components and/or have your stuff locked away in a closet or a cabinet w/o direct line of sight from the remote (if that is your situation your are going to have to spend more money for a remote with a r/f transmitter).

I like it....It's good...With this remote, though, that isn't the case...the buttons are well laid out, selecting a source is easy, and programming the remote is a snap...just plug the remote into your computer, go to the harmony app, and download the source directly into your remote....It works well but didn't have specific functions that I wanted (like a delete all button which sounds a little snobby but when you have 100 Mickey Mouse Clubhouse episodes to delete you want that ability) so I ended up buying the AT&T remote anyway.
With the ability to control up to 8 devices, this Logitech Harmony 350 915-000230 universal remote simplifies operation of your TV, cable/satellite box, DVR, Blu-ray Disc player and other home entertainment components.
Love it....love it!...I did have difficulty with finding the correct code for the sound bar but the Insignia customer representative was helpful and assisted me with getting it programed....I could make it turn my tv on and off, change channels, and volume, but couldn't get it to work the smart features on my tv
Only @ Best Buy

Best ever...Works well...I've owned a lot of "universal" remotes before and all they would really do is turn my equipment off and on and raise and lower my volume, but this remote goes way beyond that....Sony customer support is not very good, as they are just trained to read the manual to you and lack and magic knowledge to really help you (at least in this case).
Control up to eight A/V components with this easy-to-use remote and eliminate the clutter in your living room.
Good product...works well....It seems solidly made, it takes seconds to program and then life gets just that little bit easier to no longer need an oversized complicated TV remote, I love it!...(But it was due to my native remote not having working batteries) After clearing up my confusion, set up was a breeze and I was able to program my TCL flat screen TV remote to the sideclick.
