If I am going to spend 400$ for this remote, I think I'd just spring for the 1100 instead. I really only have a TV, AVR, and BluRay in my main room - although I have a separate game room with a different TV, Xbox, and PS3 in an upstairs loft.. maybe with the RF functionality I could be downstairs, click the "Play Games" button and it'd turn on my TV and game system upstairs before I walked up there? :P That might be useful..
(Trying to talk myself into buying one of these 3 remotes... having a hard time deciding - any opinions? the 'cool factor' with the 1100 is slowly winning on me i think.. i like the tablet design.)
keep in mind that no matter what remote you get, you'll need an IR adapter to control the PS3...you can thank Sony for not including an IR receiver.
the 900 comes with the main blaster (i.e. wireless extender) and two mini blasters that plug into the main blaster...
the 1100 does not come with the extender.
the One will not work with any logitech wireless extender...but would work with a 3rd party IR repeater system
another advantage of the 900 that I love is the sleep timer. it actually executes the 'off' button functionality after a certain number of minutes (you have several choices)...so the need for your devices to have a sleep timer is irrelevant, and the harmony smart state technology doesn't get confused. also, as I mentioned before, the 900 is easier to setup, as a lot of the settings, including the entire RF setup, is done on the remote itself and not on the computer....
not that any harmony remote is that hard to setup
