I must admit, it takes some time to get used to the power that the Harmony 1000 offers, but once you do, watch out. This thing will simplify your couch commando experience so much that the only thing I could not get it to do was bring me a beer. Setup was a breeze with the software interface. About thirty minutes and away you go controlling everything that you can. Since the Harmony can control up to fifteen devices you will no longer need to look for the individual remote control for the TV volume after using the one for the DVR box; just tap, and away you go. Even though the battery life is low, you will never notice since it will constantly recharge in the dock for you. What's even nicer, is you can go and buy that big screen TV you want, because with a few clicks in the software you have control of it, too. This has made my life so much easier, and it is so user friendly that the kids are using it to set up recording of their favorite shows.
I recommend the Harmony to anyone wanting to get rid of the remote control clutter and dance. I also recommend you pick up more Wireless Extenders if you want to control more that one room, because they are a life saver. Not having to be directly lined up with the TV to turn up the volume when changing the new born's diaper is a selling point on its own. Sure you can get that bargain remote at the drug store, but come on, it will never do near what the Harmony 1000 can do.
