But then a few months ago, my kid knocked over my coffee right on the 880. And I was able to salvage that with the old bag of rice trick, but sometimes buttons would stick on me, and when that was the Volume Up button late at night, it was a bit of an issue
...so I weighed the pros and cons and decided to hop off the fence and just do it, not knowing if anybody would ever make a reasonably priced remote that satisfied all my needs.
I have read through this thread, and I've looked at about a dozen reviews, so I thought I knew what to expect. But here's the thing:What in the name of all that is good and holy were they thinking with the A/C adapter for this thing?
Why hasn't anybody complained about this?
Are they all like this, or did I just get an oddball "international" version?
It's got 3 separate pieces that all plug together like loose-fitting Legos, and of course the US 120V module is the last piece of the puzzle, meaning I have to plug all three pieces together to make it work. So the end result is this thing sticks at least 4-5 inches out of the socket and dangles precariously. I can see it falling out if I look at it funny. If I plug it into a power strip on the floor, I honestly don't know if it will stay in place at all.
Why is QA not a thing at Logitech? Why do their products all seem to have such major design flaws? And why do I keep buying them?
Grrr.... rant over. Sucker that I am, I will probably keep it. But I am definitely going to contact them about this, if for no other reason than to ask what the DC voltage is on the adapter so that I can hopefully swap it with the old one. It *probably* says right on it, but the print is so tiny that even with a magnifying glass, I can't read it.
