    Default Acoustic Research ARRX18G

    Anyone using one of these, How are they?
    I've heard they are better than some of the Logitech Higher brands..

    From personal experience (and neither of the two brands being mentioned being ideal IMHO), I still prefer the Logitech Harmony line.
    I had the ARRX15G which is the 15 device non-touchscreen version and it lasted maybe 3 months before I went back to my older Harmony 700 and even older Harmony 520.

    I have since retired the older Logitechs and went to a Harmony Touch for the upstairs and a Harmony Link for the downstairs using an iPad mini.

    But as I said, neither brand is my preferred choice. URC products would be my top choice but they aren't very hobbyist level friendly.
    A TRC-1280 would be my choice for the HT.

    Thanks ZLTFUL for the insight.
    I have a Harmony One but find it lacking in the LCD screen area, and difficult to program exactly the way you want it..
    I picked up the ARRX18G for $50 so I figured I would try it out, even if I don't like it at be resell it..
    Thanks Again

    Yeah hard to go wrong at $50 for a ~$200 remote.

    We do have 2 shops around here that sell URC stuff but mostly their home automation gear. I am stopping by there on the way home tonight to ask them about getting my hands on a TRC-1280.

    Yeah my local computer store has been shocking me lately with many good deals that I would have never looked to them for..
    Those URC remotes look nice but pricey like you said, to rich for my blood..
    My favorite looking remote was the Logitech 1000 I think, it was just a big touch screen with a couple of buttons, If I went URC I would look for one like that otherwise they look all the same to me..
