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.
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.
Summary: Haven't tried any customized macro stuff yet so can't comment on that.
Pros: Just picked up two of these - one for living room with 6x devices and one for bedroom with 3x devices. Took about 15min from opening the box to operational which is pretty good. Remote is nicely weighted and comfortable and the buttons are well designed.
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.
Summary: I bought this remote probably two years ago. The 650 is packed with good features, and I'd always wanted a Harmony remote, so I got the 650. My favorite feature is the color screen, and the software to set it up. I'm very tech savvy, but I think the average person could set it up pretty easily.
Summary: I've owned 3 Harmony Remotes of various models. When they work they work great, but all of mine had to be reprogrammed multiple times because they would lose their settings. For some reason if they are knocked off the table they lose their minds and I have to pull the batteries out for a few minutes...
Summary: I love the idea that the Harmony 650 replaced my five remotes, it was a good addition to my home entertainment set up. However there are few details that made this remote flawed. It took me at least five times setting up the activities for my the H 650 to finally work properly and the durability is...
Summary: I purchased another Harmony since the 550 has served my family well. However, I'm disappointed in the 650 relatively speaking. The quality of the product itself seems lower/cheaper. The big issue I encountered was the difficulty the 650 appeared to have with the Microsoft XBOX 360.
