I have an 890 and an 880 and am not impressed with their feel. Also,  
my 890 has been having a problem registering one of the soft keys. I  
have to really give it a good press. Plus the layout isn't all that  
great. After a while you can find the key you want by feel but I  
still have to think about where I am on the remote and occasionally  
hit the wrong button and get pitched out instead of rewinding 5  
seconds or whatever.

Overall I'm still glad I have mine - controlling so many devices from  
one remote is a godsend - but from a tactile perspective they don't  
feel like they're worth the price logitech is charging.
