Deal Details

http://buy.logitech.com/store/log...nch_051111
  • The Logitech VIP Store currently has the Harmony 900 for $139.99 and Harmony One for $99.99
  • The Harmony 900 Refurb is normally $219 from the Logitech store and has been $159.99 with coupon on occasion.
  • The Harmony One can be bought new from Costco right now for $109.99 if you have a Costco membership this is probably a better deal for a brand new remote with Costco's great return policy.
  • This had been previously posted but has been out of stock in the VIP Store.
  • I'd been waiting for a good deal on the Harmony 900 for awhile.
  • BTW- I already own a Harmony 900 - it is a great remote if you need RF. The One is better if you don't need RF capability in your remote since it has sequences (button macros) and is cheaper. I previously owned the Harmony 880 and 890 and they are both great remotes, but the 900 feels faster has a much higher resolution screen and compared to the 890 - the 900 doesn't require you to plug the RF Receiver into your computer each time to program it, on the 900 the RF Receiver is programmed via RF by the remote itself. Overall I've been really happy with the 900, other than of course the missing sequences. You can find out a lot more about it by doing a quick Google search or reading the Harmony 900 thread over on avsforum.com
  • To get into the Logitech VIP store, you must have previously purchased something from the logitech.com store - simply use your login/password for logitech.com to login to the VIP store.
  • For those without VIP status, you might be able to get it using a trick found here (thanks to blackrain for the original post and links):

  • This had been previously posted but has been out of stock in the VIP Store.
  • UPDATE: Just received a 10% coupon to the Logitech VIP store until 11/5, bringing the price DOWN to 125.99 for the Harmony 900 and 89.99 for the Harmony One! Code maybe unique - check your email.
  • For those that already ordered, try calling 1-800-231-7717 from Monday - Friday, 6:00am - 6:00pm PST and Saturday - Sunday, 7:00am to 5:00pm PST and asking for the difference!

I don't know why - but my post keeps getting its line breaks removed - making it look like I wrote one super long line. Hoping that using bullets fixes it.

I just checked - all of the keys are back lit. The back light is not particularly bright - but it should be plenty bright in a dark or dimly lit room.
thanks, my home theater is pretty dark so even if the back lighting is dim that should be fine for my use. pulled the trigger on one.

K whatever you say but you will be surprise..... They never had a lifetime warranty you know how ridiculous that sounds? ... I work for anothe big company and like I said I have family they works at Costco and that's not how it works. I'm not going to get into the whole process because I'm not going to discuss things I'm not supposed to talk about but trust me they don't have a lifetime warranty.

Sorry for the typos I'm on my phone

All they say is that they guarantee customer satisfaction on all of their products and will give the customer a 100% refund if they are dissatisfied. That leaves a lot to interpretation, but if you have a good faith problem with something you purchased from them, even something purchased years before, they will do their best to make you happy.

http://www.costco.com/returns-rep...funds.html

Other than the 90-day limitation on the specifically enumerated categories of items (TVs, cameras, phones, etc.), its wording is pretty expansive. It's not a flat out lifetime return policy, but if you make a good case for being unhappy with something you purchased, I think they will try to make you happy.

I have Harmony One, but 900 sounds like it might be perfect. Got into VIP without any backflips, am I a VIP?

Also I don't get the vagueness on the Costco Warranty fight? It may not be called a warranty but they have given my money back on anything I tried to bring back including a 8 year old non-stick Rowenta iron that peeled. I certainly don't abuse it but I don't get the argument here.

Use the hack. In for one. Been waiting on a 900 deal for several months. Love my Harmony One, but want to hide my components.
If that is your only reason for upgrading I have another suggestion. I have all of my components in the basement and my tv on the living room wall. I use an old school Logitech 550 (IR not RF). What you need is an IR repeater (about $16) [monoprice.com] - mine works very well.


I hope I caught you before you dropped $100+!

u can use an IR repeater but you still have to have the receiving sensor visible since IR is line of sight.

or if ur components are not in line of sight (mine are behind me) then u have to point the remote in that direct for it to work.

if you want it totally hidden or if u have components that are not in ur line of sight then u have to go RF.

I actually bought the One and had line of sight issues - so I bought the Logitech IR Repeater.

I have a plasma TV (Pioneer Elite Pro-151FD), and maybe the fact that it is plasma is the culprit - but I placed the IR receiver in several locations and it picked up so many random IR signals from the TV that it was worse using the repeater than using the One alone.

I know it was picking up random signals because the Logitech IR Repeater has a light that blinks when it receives IR signals and it was going nuts blinking repeatedly without me pressing anything on the remote. I have heard that both LCD backlights and Plasma TVs put out IR and can negatively impact an IR Repeater.

Ultimately - I went with the 900 and I was really happy with the results. I also really like the fact that you don't need line of sight to use the remote. It might be from using the Harmony 890 for awhile - but I'm used to just pressing the remote buttons without necessarily picking up the remote and it works.

I know what the policy says but at the same time you think that you can return a remote two years from now saying that you are not satisfied ?? ... the only items they will guarantee 100 % are their kirkland products because those are their items ... to guarantee a remote control for a lifetime is a joke .. like I said I know what I'm talking about they might make an exception once but I hope you know they keep track of what you purchased and return and if they think you are abusing their policy they can say no to you ...

You sound very weird, not really logical. Of course costco will trace your purchase and return and do evaluation, it doesn't mean you can't return anything you don't like. I returned things new without receipt because I didn't use/want, returned roomba after two years because it just didn't do too much work, returned two TVs I believe, both vizio, which I just hate. And I still have the membership, didn't get any hassle when shopping there. What's your point? Are you saying if you buy all their products and roll around every other week, they will kick you out? I don't doubt about that. Even if that's true, you still end up paying nothing.

Warranty is 90 day on refurb Harmony remotes. (1 year on brand new) -

Looks like the deal is still good - showing up as $139.99 for the 900 and $99.99 for the One for me. I was able to add the 900 to my cart too.
