Typical is meaningless Count your devices and pick the cheapest model that can handle that number. Go up to the next model for more bells and whistles (rechargeable, touch screen, etc.). If you want RF or a touch screen look at the 900 and 1100. There is a comparison chart in my signature. IMO Xsight remotes are better overall (more devices and more features) and cheaper than harmony. URC remotes are better and more expensive. But as always, you get what you pay for.
