I've had my Harmony One for almost a year now.  Great remote.  One of my 
kids did spill some soda on it once, making the buttons all sticky.  I 
was able to remedy this by removing the battery, and using isopropyl 
alcohol to kinda flush out the buttons.  Let it dry, put the battery 
back in, and good as new!
