In my experience the IR Strength is plenty good on these, I've successfully
turned components on/off with a two wall bounce.......

PS. Your right - its still cheaper than a Pronto.

I actually bought a Harmony 880 last week for ~$190 incl shipping (you can 
find the site and 25% coupon code by browsing the remotecentral.com forums).

Should be getting it early next week.  Only thing I'm really worried about
IR strength - it's gotta bounce off my projector screen and back to all the 
components.  And really, as far as remotes go, it's not _that_ expensive.  
There's plenty that cost a lot more. =)
