The good: Tablet-style, touch-screen, universal remote that controls 15 devices; controls components via infrared or RF (for an extra charge); includes rechargeable battery and docking station; Web-programmable and compatible with Windows and Macintosh PCs via simple, straightforward software wizard; less expensive than competing tablet models; faster response time and improved operation versus Harmony 1000.
The bad: Pricey, especially considering that the RF module costs extra; screen drains battery quickly when it's not left in the charging stand; no easy way to use in more than one room; lacks the design and programming flexibility (you can't design your own buttons, custom screen layouts, or program multi-device macros) that many high-end remotes offer; setting up systems with more than five or six components can get pretty tricky.
The bottom line: The Logitech Harmony 1100 is an excellent touch-screen universal remote that corrects most of the shortcomings and frustrations of its predecessor, but its high price will relegate it to high-end home theaters only.

Pros: Its easy to use web-base programing, small, battery does last a while. Clear and simple use for all my devices.
Cons: No locking feature (kids). Its not RF right off the bat. I have not been able to change the picture for back screen as the instructions say. A bit expensive.
Summary: Its a Great product. If you have the sound system in your house, you must have a touchscreen Universal remote. No more where is the remote, you won't lose ...

Summary: Wonderful product. We built a "man cave" (TV, surround sound, Blu Ray etc.) and were quoted over four times the price we paid to buy a similar product (don't forget the technician's hourly rate that wasn't included). So we found this product and are simply amazed how simple it is to program AND run. To pack away six remotes was a fantastic relief. It truly is a remote built for the rest of us and you don't need to be overly tech savvy. The secret is READ THE INSTRUCTIONS and gather the information, it then takes very little time to program.

Pros: This is the easiest remote, by way of set up and ease of use, I have found. One button to watch TV, play music, watch a DVD and one button turns it all off. It is very user-friendly and the display is crystal clear, pricey but worth the investment.
Cons: Haven't found any yet
Summary: This remote went perfectly with the new big screen TV, fiber optic settop box, Blu-ray and surround sound system and had no problem controlling all these components. I cannot say ...
Summary: This remote went perfectly with the new big screen TV, fiber optic settop box, Blu-ray and surround sound system and had no problem controlling all these components. I cannot say too many good things about it.
This remote rocks.absolutely love it!
by GoodTri on October 18, 2010
Pros: Clean, bright, uncluttered screen. The remote is easy to program, responds quickly with little or no delay, and is easy to use. I find that the battery life is exceptional lasting well over a week on one charge. I give this unit an A++++ rating.
Cons: It took me a little while to figure out how to do some of the programming as the manual is not very explicit but had the who thing up and running with my components in about 1 hour.
Summary: Extremely well thought out product. Simple, clean and easy to use. If my wife loves it, I know it is a good product as she tends to be technically challenged. ...
Summary: Extremely well thought out product. Simple, clean and easy to use. If my wife loves it, I know it is a good product as she tends to be technically challenged. In fact, as I mentioned, we got rid of a very expensive Control 4 system that needed a wireless network to operate. She hated it as it always seemed to have lock up issues especially after power outages.
We love the Harmony 1100. It is light, small and easy to read especially in the evening in low light situations. The symbols and text are relatively large and as my close vision get more challenged with age I find this unit to be a big plus.
Great product at a fair price, especially through some of the online retailers.
Great remote, easy to program and nice form factor.
by calbert1999 on April 17, 2010
Pros: Really easy to install software, update the firmware on the remote and use the PC based software to add devices. Creating activities is neat to create one button commands to power up multiple devices. Overall easy to use.
Cons: Very expensive, and for the price the IR / RF blaster should be included. Also, for more techy types it would have been great to have an advanced version of the software to have more control to create better marcros.
Summary: The form factor is very attractive and it fits well with A/V equipment. I really like the minimalistic approach Logitech has taken to include a few physical buttons for ...
Summary: The form factor is very attractive and it fits well with A/V equipment. I really like the minimalistic approach Logitech has taken to include a few physical buttons for widely used functions like changing the channel and volume controls. The touch screen is really neat, and provides fully funtionality for all the programmed devices.
Considering the price of the product it should have included the IR / RF blaster. Also, it would be great to have additional tools to allow more control over programming the device with more advanced macros.
difficulty in ease

Pros: cool design, something to brag about. one touch activity. responsive customer service.
Cons: confusing setup. still confusing. price point is way to high. ergonomically challanging, if you're used to holding a remote in one hand.

Summary: i would not recommend this product if you're looking for something to control 4 or 5 devices in 1 room. save your money and get something more simple. i'd highly recommend this remote if you need to control a dining room lighting and shades, entertainment theater system and lighting but thats it.
Drops commands you've programmed.
by kuttim on October 30, 2009
Pros: Looks great. lots of potential.
Cons: Buggy sofware. Tech support is atrocious.
Summary: I spent tons of time programming those commands I felt were required for each activity, only to see once they were programmed, they drop out and back in at random. ...
Summary: I spent tons of time programming those commands I felt were required for each activity, only to see once they were programmed, they drop out and back in at random. Tech support can only say they are aware of the problem and are working to fix it. Thier automated system then emails a response saying they will consider the issue resolved I don't respond to thier email saying they have resolved this issue within 5 days. Their email acknowledges the problem and the fact there is no known resolution to the problem. They don't offer to notify me once it has been resolved. The level 2 tech support people suggest the issue is related to the size of my account. I asked what I need to do to make it work. How many devices, commands, activities, etc. will stay within limits? (Keep in mind their software limits you already). Tech support will not provide an answer or even a suggestion. Moreover, I have run into other problems such as the inability of the device to display the game contrioller commands of the PS3, for which they sell an adapter I also purchased. They advised me this and the other problem (commands dropping out) are the top two problems on their list of problems to fix. I asked for the list of known problems. They refused to provide it. At the same time they are insisting they are not hiding anything. Also, good luck if you try contacting them concerning an established incident by phone. I consistently got connected to a support center in Manilla, whose delightful people were unable to understand what I was saying. Trust me, my pronounciation/enunciation skills are more than adequate. I also know a bit about technology, as I am an electronics technician by trade. I have emailed the author of this review with this information in hopes they would see fit to correct the rating, given the bugs and the lack of tech support. Please beware. If you assume this will get fixed soon, I advise you to google the Harmony 1000, released in early 2007. There are still issues open concerning that remote to this date. BTW- I have in the past used the Harmony 8800, and harmony one remotes. I had good experiences with those. That's why I bought this. This has been an extremely dissappointing experience I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. What good is a remote control that drops commands off and on screen randomly? I must keep all the remotes on hand to ensure I can perform the simplest of tasks.
The PERFECT compliment to your system!
by gemineye111 on July 2, 2009
Pros: Setup is extremely easy,gather all your model numbers and type them in. The rest (selecting TV inputs, receiver inputs, etc) is point and click.. Upload your own images to the remote and use them as wallpaper. Ultra-thin design in black is slick.
Cons: Battery life is short due to LCD touch screen (BUT, you can dock this when not in use). Those of you who are not used to tablet remotes and virtual buttons may miss the tactile feel of wand remotes. PRICEY. Does NOT control bluetooth devices.
Summary: Awesome remote with easy setup if you can afford it. The look is sleak and sexy. Setup took me under an hour, and since I use DS's and iPhones, ...
Summary: Awesome remote with easy setup if you can afford it. The look is sleak and sexy. Setup took me under an hour, and since I use DS's and iPhones, I am very used to touch screens. The LCD brightness can be adjusted and their are lots of customization settings. SUPERB. My only complaint is that it does not turn on my Wii and PS3 due to them being bluetooth devices.
Insufficient for the price
by Mosephus on April 21, 2009
Pros: Easy to use
Cons: Expensive. No Bluetooth.
Summary: At this point a "universal" remote at this price point without Bluetooth capabilities just isn't...universal.

Touch Screen Cons

Summary: Not that I expect it to give feedback, but when you are fast-forwarding commercials or through a movie, you have to look down at the remote to find the soft key to stop it. I actually switched back to an 890 since you could feel the buttons which made using the device easier my opinion. Maybe I'm just getting old, but I prefer to have some actual keys to press. In addition, you can get an 890 with RF for less $.
