High Points
• The Harmony 880's exceptional user interface is worth the cost of admission.
• Rechargeable battery and dock included
• Capable of controlling 15 different components 
• Capable of multiple start-up macros
• Famous Harmony Help button to walk you through problems

Low Points
• No RF capability, so line of sight is necessary
• Lacks coolness factor of a touch screen

Conclusion
The incredible flexibility and large number of hard buttons and optional additional buttons on the LCD display make this remote capable of controlling very large and complicated systems with ease. The lack of RF support will require line of sight for use, though, so if you need RF, look to the big brother, the Harmony 890. Otherwise, buy and enjoy!
