Summary: I am on my second 650 in about 3 years. I love the programability so that it is never obsolete. It does take a while to set up, but the effort is worth it. Where the remote falls down is reliability. I'm not sure the build quality is as it should be. The first remote started having problems after two years. Often used buttons stopped working. The current one is experiencing the same problem after only about a year. Very disappointed.
Summary: I bought this one cause I had the older model that I loved, it always worked and did every thing that my tv , dvd, tuner, and anything I put on It. so when it broke I was disappointed, when I wen to go buy a new one I tried to find it and found out they no longer made it. so I saw this one and said...well it Logitech so it should work just the same. nope I was wrong, it was cheaper looking and didn't work everything that the older one did.
Summary: This thing would only control all three devices about 80% of the time. Constantly having to get up and make changes manually. Constant source of frustration. And it eats batteries like candy. I will not have another one.
Summary: ok , I did just get this yesterday but so far it works great and was a snap to set up. I have a Samsung tv a Samsung dvd player a Samsung sound bar and a scientific Atlanta cable box everything programmed in just fine with the initial setup. as I was viewing I realized there was a couple buttons I would like to change to my satisfaction, first try at it I forgot to sync when done...ooops. after that any changes I make are simple.
Summary: I bought this remote today to replace my old 670 which I found hard to read in low light conditions. I love everything about it except I can't use it and forced to return it. It has very stingy and likely arbitrary 5 device limit. I have 6 devices and planning to add another one or two in the future. I've been buying harmony remotes for ages so that adults can also navigate my AV system. I'd pay twice as much for 650 allows 8 or more devices so I'm covered.
Summary: I rarely write reviews but I'm so impressed by this product I can't restrain. The initial setup was very easy, took 10 minutes. After using the remote for a while I began wishing it could control some of the complicated commands on my AV receiver and I wished I could customize several other things. I plugged the remote back into the computer and was able to customize the remote exactly the way I wanted.
Summary: Of all the electronic equipment I've purchased over the years, the 650 has by far been the best. It completely exceeded expectations. I've had trouble with home theater stereo's and have had to swap different ones in and out. The Harmony and it's excellent setup website made it a snap. Just awesome.
Summary: If you are under 40 years old, the back lighting is probably adequate, but I am 57 years old and the back lighting is so dim that I need a small flashlight to see which button to push. My old Harmony remote had translucent buttons so the entire button was illuminated. I read reviews before I purchased and only 1 person mentioned dim back lighting as a problem. I really don't want to wear reading glasses while watching TV.
