Need to buy a remote control.
Which is the better one, a Harmony 525 or the 555.
I have about a maximum of 6 devices.


Any Help Please.

I doubt you will find anyone who has 1 of each of those who can give you a real answer.
I have 2 525's and am very satisfied with them. Learning how to programme them properly is a bit of a pain but the Logitech staff are very helpful.
The one in my lounge controls 7 different devices including my ipod in it's Bose sound dock.
The Activities facility is particularly useful as it allows you to programme it so that all the required devices are turned on at once eg TV & Toppy and the remote will work between the 2 seamlessly eg with the Toppy on the volume control works the TV volume whereas the channel changer works on the Toppy.

I have a 525 but find it a little flimsy. I "upgraded" to a 785 18 months ago and IMHO is much better. The key response seems better too. I only use the 525 when I have forgotten to charge the 785 and its battery goes flat!

Good choice. Amazon is a good place to buy as you can return it if you find it not to your liking. You must spend sometime customising the remote to your exact needs; So persevere. I suggest spare "low discharge" batteries such as GP Recyko and an standard charger (also available elsewhere such as fleabay).
