Excerpt: I really like the easy Internet interface to program the device. Very simple and intuitive. Very flexible. My only concern is that the 650 seems to have a difficult time when it comes to video inputs. Perhaps it is me but the 650 does everything well except getting the right video input. I am still working with it trying to ad delays into switching the inputs but it is still not choosing the correct one.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Program, Easy To Set Up, Ergonomic Design, Nice Button Configuration, Nice Features
Excerpt: No "Universal Remote" will truly replace the individual remotes that come with your individual components - BUT this is one of the closest you'll find - at a reasonable price. I have a "new" TV an "old" receiver, an "old" DVD carousel player and a "new" DirecTV set top box. All components were in the database and all I had to do was select them - the rest was just some customizing based on our usage... I've used the Harmony line from Logitech for many years.
Pros: Don't Have To Be A Techie, Durable, Easy To Program, Easy To Set Up, Ergonomic Design, Nice Button Configuration, Nice Features
Excerpt: I have a harmony one myself and love it, so when I needed a way to help my parents operate their home theater I went right for a harmony remote. The activity buttons made it easy for them to understand, and I can adjust their setup at my convenience to work out any issues they have. Mom was also able to use the help buttons to correct problems on her own so we all are happy with it.
Summary: As of this moment, 28 Dec. 2014, the software for this controller is completely broken. They initially had a web based software that marginally worked after a few attempts, but then went with a desktop program. I've downloaded, uninstalled, and reinstalled this program multiple times, and it is ALWAYS stuck at the loading screen. I have put up a message on their forum, and await a response.
Pros: Does what it's supposed to do...when it works
Cons: Doesn't always does what it's supposed to do...what?
Excerpt: It took a few hours to set it up properly due to uncommon equipment input on my DVR. Once it's set up it works great. This is the third Harmony I've set up for friends/relatives and they are all happy with them.I docked it one star because the firmware wouldn't let me rearange the screen functions.
Excerpt: This is my second Harmony remote. I purchased a 659 several years ago and it is still going strong. The old 659 is going to the bedroom to control a Directv DVR, Vizio HDTV, Samsung Blu Ray player, and a Sony sound bar I recently purchased. The addition of the sound bar finally made me break down and buy the second Harmony - 4 remotes were just too many to handle.
Pros: Easy To Program, Easy To Set Up, Ergonomic Design, Nice Button Configuration
Excerpt: It had all of my devices, including a few obscure ones. It's relatively easy to set up, though there were some problems completing sync.As for using, it works as expected. The only 'nit' is that it takes a while to go through all of the commands to turn everything on and to the correct signal. Once you get used to it, it's not a big deal.
