Decent deal but without the hub I'll pass. Thanks for posting, repped

This one works with the Hub, just doesnt come with it, yes? So you could purchase this and a hub separately and it would be the same as the package where they come together?

According to this compatibility chart, yes this is compatible with the hub:

I have the ultimate home, and supposedly there are subtle differences with the touch. The two remotes look identical on the face, but the ultimate screen will turn on when you move the remote. This is not a very important feature to me. Overall, I really don't like the "travel" buttons on the remote being above the touch screen. I also miss having one touch 30 second forward, 7 second back buttons that are on my dvr remote. I have them programmed to a long press, but long press 7 second rewind is a pain.

This also doesn't have the haptic touch feedback that the Ultimate has. That's a nice feature that some people may care about.

I looked at this a bit more after my post, and decided the same thing...looks like it leads to a lot of inadvertent presses of the touch screen while using those. I currently have the Harmony Hub remote with the more boring, screenless remote, which is pretty amazing outside of having less buttons (the battery in it has lasted a good 3 years at least)....I may just focus on getting another of those (for another room) rather than the fancy touchscreen one.

I agree. My 880 broke,they sent me a Harmony One. That broke and they sent an Ultimate. Truly hate it. Hit the wrong buttons. Have to swipe a few time to get to the keybad. I would love to have my One back.

That is a nice feature, to know for sure that you pushed the correct touch sceen button. It is kind of annoying though. I mostly watch from my DVR and don't flip channels very often, so I am not going to miss it. (I bought a second remote for the living room).

Buttons are overrated.
The number buttons are silly. It is like dialing numbers on a phone, you never really do that. I have all of the channels that I watch saved as favorties on my remote, and I just click the little icons. Worst case scenario, I can hit guide and click an icon to find a nearby channel. If you have more than 15 channels memorized that you use the dial pad for I would be surprised.

The 880 does have better button placement. I will give you that. In order to get the better buttons you need to go to the Elite, and in my opinion that is way to expenive. This remote is only $60 (i paid $6 tax) and then the hub with keyboard can be found refurbished for under $60 as well. Just yesterday it was $45. Having a hub so you do not have to point the remote in any particular direction and know that you are always going to get the remote to work without interference is great. Using the phone app is also really nice if the remote is out of reach, or near someone else. When the app is open, I love being able to use my phones volume buttons to control the volume on my receiver. Importing your channel guide and having everything sync makes things easy.

One thing you can do with this remote (and a hub) that you can't do an 880: Set up IFTTT with alexa (or even the amazon voice remote for fire tv). I love saying "Alexa trigger shutdown" to turn everything off or "Alexa trigger prism tv" to turn everything on.

Also, this remote (plus hub) can control my fire tv without issues. That is really nice, as we watch quite a bit of streaming content.

For $60, even without the hub this is a large upgrade from the 880.

I really like the touchscreen. I don't need to remember that espn is 16XX or my favorite music choice channel is 90xx. I just have icons to push. I set my touch screen to lock after 15 seconds, and unlock is just a swipe. I never accidentally press, and I so rarely switch channels, that I have probably spent more time typing this response than I have swiping the unlock over the past 6 months.

The home companion does have better one hand ergonomics, and doesnt need to charge as much. Right now you can buy the white one with the hub at newegg refurbished for $88. I thought about it, especially since I do have z-wave light switches and appliance modules I could tie in the remote, but having backlight is really nice in the home theater. The lack of buttons also makes it much easier to use for guests. You look at the remote for about 2 seconds and you can do anything you need.

Home control for $88: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...-_-Product

Since I already have the ultimate in one room, I am going to stay consistent and get the same remote.

yeah all that stuff is cool...not so much for my wife and 4 year old though. Buttons FTW

That said...I bought one to see if I like it.
