Best. Remote. Ever

I've been looking for a universal remote for the family room, as I've grown tired of using three remotes to control the devices in that room. I had read good things about the Logitech Harmony remotes, so I took a chance and ordered a Harmony 659. It arrived this week. It is hands-down the best universal remote I've ever used. All of the programming is done via a web-based wizard on Logitech's site. All you do is specify which devices you wish to control, and the wizard asks you a series of questions to customize the controls to the way you want to use the remote. It took me about 20 minutes to program it, and it works like a charm. All the buttons are laid out intuitively, and it's idiot-proof. Anyone can pick it up and start watching TV, watch a DVD or play a game with the touch of a button. Compared to the 20+ hours I spent programming my Marantz RC5000i, this remote is a godsend.

Highly recommended.
