In for one. My 3-year-old 880 is starting to show some wear on some contact points from buttons. I love this thing!

I've had a refurb'ed 880 for about 1.5 years and really like it.

As for the reviews you'll read elsewhere about it not charging on the station after a while.... Just use some rubbing alcohol on a Q-Tip to clean the contacts if (when) it starts giving you trouble. It will continue to work just fine.

Is this dead, or am I doing something wrong?

@anotherhiggins: I have not had a problem with the charging base as of yet and I have had mine for about the same time. Thanks for tip. My only problem has been with the battery door cover breaking from my daughter dropping it. I had a hell of a time trying to find a replacement and even logitech support said they weren't available. But luckily through a web search deep into the web pages where we don't usually travel I found a forum link to the part. I found it again but they say they are out of stock and not showing a pic. Here it is if you ever need it:

@fenstar: No, you are right. The deal is dead. These low price harmony refurbs don't usually stay around for long and they hike the price back up. It was a great price - they want $111 now. I will ask for a tombstone.

Great device for as long as it works. I'd not be surprised if they have a constant supply of refurbished units, however.

Mine lasted about 2 years - purchased new @ Target, now it won't communicate with the computer to change any of the settings. A shame too, since I really liked the remote and how it worked.

Love this remote! I've had it for 3 years. I bought mine refurbished back then for 169.99 with free shipping when it retailed for 299.99. It's fully upgradeable and they improve the software every year or so as well. Up until now I've seen it selling on eBay and other sites for about 139.99 and up so this is a GREAT deal!!

Remote is great, But, this deal is no longer active. I have asked for the tombstone.

One of the best purchases I've ever made. Even my wife loves this remote. Had it for over 4 years and I've never had an issue.

vote-for3vote-against

Deal is still active. I just purchased one. We have one already and have never had any problems. This will be great for my Mom and Dad.

Deal is not dead. I just ordered one

vote-for2vote-against

Agreed, un-tombstone this one.

Can't live without my 880 remote!!! Great Product

vote-for1vote-against

Sorry, but I think I got one of the last ones of this batch. It looks like these might be available again in a day or so, at $70.

How do I get this deal? I'm only seeing it for $90. Where is the $69 at? Is their a discount code?

vote-for1vote-against

Wow, I am only seeing now that the deal had come back, AND DIED AGAIN. Such is amazon. I am showing 109.45 now. If someone does see a deal come back again like this please use the tattle button to send the good people at deals.woot the msg to un-RIP the deal.

Can anyone tell me if it would be worth upgradng from a Philips Prestigo sru 8112? It does what I bought it to do, but if the functions of the Harmony are worth the upgrade, I would probably do it.

Spend a little more and get the 700. I have an 880 I use in my bedroom and as soon as it's dead I'll be replacing it with the 700. I can definitely live without the charging base seeing as how it comes with a much more ergonomic button layout. Plus, its just all around easier use and navigate.

Dead again as of 1:50 EST.

Bought a new (damaged box) remote straight from logitch for $100 around the beginning of january/end of december. Couldn't be happier - remote does everything I need, is very easy to use and I haven't had the charging issues everyone is complaining about (I think I have the updated model that fixes though - which is why there are/were quite a few refurbs).

Excellent remote.
