I can't comment on this model directly, but I have the 550 and love it. It has a few more buttons and can control a few more devices than this one. The great thing is that you program these by your computer so it should have the profile for your device even if they are new. It is neat to push watch TV and it know to turn on the right devices to the right settings.

Can't give a specific link, as it is completely a clearance item available on a store-by-store basis at WalMart. They were putting up the model 610 for $20 at 2 of the stores I was in (one in California and one in Colorado). If you're dying to get one, and have the "time" next time you're out shopping, check it out.

@slein:
I have the 520, and I absolutely second your comment.
These are really great remotes.

Looks like they also have a deal on the Harmony 610:

$10 more but more recent model. I think I am going for the later model. I've only ever heard good things about these remotes.

Hmm... Makes me think, 510 or 610.
I wonder...
There aren't too many reviews on youtube on either of these remotes.
Any benefits of going with the 610? More devices at once? Rechargeable?

My problem with universal remotes is that my Cablevision DVR has A, B and C buttons that are required to confirm recordings and delete them. I've tried a few and none of them sync right with these buttons. I'm having a hard time finding a larger view of the remote to see if there are "miscellaneous" buttons for this.

Totalfark, the beauty of the Harmony remotes is that you can program them with just about anything and they have plenty of buttons to program. If you have a remote that works for what you want to program you just point it at the Harmony and it will learn the function.

I just checked the link that Tony put up for the 610, and the DVR I've been having problems with is already pre-loaded. I might check that one out.

totalfark - These remotes are set up through the web so they download the latest devices so both should have that DVR. That said the more buttons the better, so you might want a remote that is more in the mid-range. The 510 should have the fewest buttons of the 500 series. Although the picture isn't great it looks like the bottom row on the 510 are just colored soft keyes that can be assigned.

To get the commercial skip on my DVR (30 sec forward) to work I had to point my original DVR remote at the back of the 550 remote where there is an IR reader. The remote read the signal and let me assign the function to a key.

Well,
In for 1 of the 510 models, after looking through a lot of reviews, and product descriptions. After reading through some Wikipedia information on the Logitech Harmony complete line it looks like at this price point they're all basically the same. So it really comes down to creature comforts.
So, I'm in for the cheaper one for now. If I love it, I'll upgrade later on!

Thanks deals.woot!

Now, I need a new laptop!

In for one, my blu-ray players number buttons don't work on my TV, I figure with this I'm protected against anything like that for the foreseeable future.

Just a word to the wise. I have an 880. Nice color screen. Fully programmable. Very nice. Awesome remote...while the buttons last. I have a number of buttons that have stopped working and it's getting to be a pain in the A$$!!! MANY people have contacted Logictech about this issue and there response has basically been, "must be time for you to get a new remote."

Just saying...
