$55 for that?... Save your money and buy this instead... Sometimes you can get it on sale for $10...

That won't turn on your PS3. The one in the OP will.

Also doesn't take up a USB port, which are running short on the newer models.

Yeah its a great device, well worth it for Harmony users. I'm sure the price will come down in time.

I may wait for the price to come down...First you buy a Harmony ($149 on sale at Amazon), then you buy a PS3 remote ($24.99), then you buy this ($55) so you don't have to use your PS3 remote and it's like spending $79.99 to use a remote you already had...sucks.

So $40 more just so it can turn the PS3 on and off?... Considering I never leave my discs in my PS3 and always take them out when I'm done I don't need it to turn the power off... I have to get off my ass to take the disc out, might as well press the power button while I'm up...

The point of using the harmony remote is for the macros switches inputs powers on and off equipment as needed. That isnt available with the other solution.

This, coupled with replacing some of my more cherished HD-DVDs with blu-ray versions would make me get rid of my hd-d3 player.

I've already had my bluetooth remote die on me so anything that lets me use my harmony remote instead is greatly appreciated and lusted after.
