Stop your research, just get a harmony. I've had the 880, 890, and 1000. They're all awesome, except the 1000. Touchscreens are a bad idea for remotes. Currently own the 890. It controls the TV, receiver, xbox, cable box, and HTPC.

I'm not sure I'm willing to pay $300 for a little bit of convenience. It does look like a cool remote though.

I've been thinking about getting a remote that does lots because I too am tired of 4 remotes. What kind of research did you do first? What do you have it controlling?
No research on this particular model. I've set up other Harmony remotes for clients before, so I know they are pretty easy to use. This one I picked up yesterday at Sam's Club for $45.00 on a spur of the moment purchase. The Harmony controls an old Sony 27" TV, an old RCA A/V Receiver, DirecTV SD Receiver, WD Live TV Plus Media Player, and an LG DVD player. (waiting until I purchase a house before I spend $$$ on new TV/electronics) Only issue I'm having is getting the remote to switch to a different input on the A/V receiver when I want to watch streaming TV on the WD media player. I've told it to use the right input and also trained the original A/V receiver remote to the Harmony, but it still doesn't switch to the right input. Other than that, watching TV with one button turning on the TV, A/V Receiver, and DirecTV receiver works perfectly.

I'm curious to find out how much battery life I'll get out of the Harmony.

Our Harmony One remote lasts about two weeks before I have to put it overnight on the charger. No biggy, though, as you can configure a slideshow to rotate while it's charging. I have pictures of pretty men rotate on it.

I just use the remotes that come with the device.

This is surprising. If you just had one remote, you could save time from needless button clicking and remote swapping and continue munching chocolate bacon strips.

My Brighthouse remote also integrates my TV & Receiver just fine. For almost 90% of what I need the remote for, the cable remote does it.

If I need some specialty fine tuning, which is rare, I just grab the remote for the device in question.

The 600 uses two standard AA batteries. Though I do have some Energizer NiMH batteries I could use in it.
