Less than a $100 plus free shipping, and check your email, because a lot of people received a $10 coupon from them yesterday for purchases over $75.


Also comes with some little side remote.

So? First off, it is a $100 product, not a $1000 product. Secondly, most people's credit cards add/extend warranties on purchases of new products. Third, and most importantly, BUY.com has an implied warrant of merchantability per the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act of 1975 that states quite clearly that if the product is not sold "as-is" (which is not even valid in about 10 states meaning in those states they still have this implied warranty even if sold as-is), the merchant must provide you a working product/refund if your product is defective.


Given that I just saved more than $70 off of BestBuy's price, I think it was an excellent find.

I mentioned the warranty because you can get the MX-500 for the same price (without free shipping) from a few authorized online dealers, one of whom is a regular contributor to this forum. The implied warranty you mention is applicable if the product arrives DOA. It does not apply 6 months or even 3 weeks from now. I just want people to know that there may be problems down the line.

Which begs the question: How often do the HTM remotes develop problems 3 weeks, 3 months, etc. down the line? Assuming you don't drop them in the bathtub, pour coffee on them. etc., isn't there a high likelihood that they will continue to operate if they are OK out of the box?

Muse, don't know. But I guess there are other similar questions (what is the possibility that you will be in a car accident, what is the possibility of accidental death.... we all still buy insurance). Some time ago there were a few threads/posts (4-5) from people that bought a Harmony remote (think it was the 659). There is always a chance that there will be a few bad ones in a batch (maybe someone on one of the assembly lines was just having a very bad day or something). so in that small interval (a couple of weeks) there were a few very PO people because they bought remotes from none authorized dealer

The switch on the MX-500 for turning on the backlight is likely to break. One of mine is broken and I've heard of several other people with the same problem.

Yikes, that's crazy cheap. Had I not just bought one, I would have gone for this one, warranty be damned. On the other hand, they want you to wait a week or two for it to ship -- I want mine NOW NOW NOW!! :)

Around Thanksgiving SR had some open box MX-600 units for something like $175. I got really distracted and when I went to order it had gone back up to over $200 for the open box units. This gave me a moment of pause, which is what I am still doing.

WHAT!?! Doh, I think I may have looked at the wrong item. I may have been looking at the MX-700 by mistake! Ok, lemme go get one of those puppies.


Shsss, don't let the wife hear me open my wallet ...

I think I had previously attempted an order with SR a few months ago when I considered the MX-500 (before the 600 unit came out). I do not remember the account information, but someone else is already using wanman. WTH?

I got it ordered. I was the individual that previously setup 'wanman', Doh! I'm going to hide all of the other remotes once I get this thing programmed. Then, I'll simply tie a red bow around it and leave in the theater room as a gift, hehe.

One of the things I cherish working for the phone company is having the ability to make life extremely difficult for others. :) LOL


Of course, I'm joking. mostly

One day I was trying to get ahold of a friend. He wasn't answering the phone and had his face glued to his PC monitor playing Everquest. I simply imparted my will on his PVC and he called with a minute. :)
