I have a Harmony 200, Harmony 510 and Harmony 1100. The 200 and 510 have suffered from 3-5 foot drops numerous times, no issues. I toss the Harmony 1100 around from person-to-person or onto the couch (and sometimes the floor), and it doesn't have any issues. I can vouch for those remotes. I've had the 200 for 1 year, 510 for 6 years and the 1100 for 2 years.
I've got a 550 and I honestly can't tell how many times I've had it fall off multiple surfaces. Batteries go flying along with the battery cover, there's something rattling inside it, but it still works just fine. It's crazy how durable that remote is.
My parent's dog chewed up another one and it still works fine too.
Any thoughts on this remote? Thinking of gifting this to my brother-in-law as he's always juggling 3-4 remotes.
I have a logitech harmony one for my living room and a harmony 700 for my room.. I use the 700 more as I spend more time in there.. It control my room lights, ps3, tv, surround sound. I LOVE IT, especially at night when I can control my whole room laying in bed. The 700 is rechargeable and it'll usually last me months.
i've had 3 of these and I have to back up the previous comments: once the remote takes a hard fall, it will start rebooting randomly. I think it may be a bad connection in the battery compartment; I've used some padding to try to secure the batteries which helps a little, but it still reboots.
I really wish Harmony would come out with a more rugged remote that could take a fall or a kid throwing it... my old Harmony 360 remote lasted me 3-4 yrs, these I've been tossing every 12 months. Anyone have a suggestion for a more rugged model?
Mine fell off my bed hard numerous times, still works. I have a 700 but it seems like the build quality is the same.
I have used one of these for a long time. Some tricks to make it much easier to use:
- Get a set of 4 good rechargeable batteries, they last about 10 times longer than normal batteries in this thing. Use 2, then when they die (about a month) swap in the other 2 and charge the dead ones.
- Put a small bit of tape or paper under the battery door. If you drop or bang the remote the batteries lose connection and it resets, the tape/paper can help.
