Excerpt: We all have experienced a remote control overload in our homes. One for the TV, another for DVD player, cable box, and even one for that antiquated VHS player, but now with a Logitech Harmony 700 Remote you can put all others to rest.
Conclusion: If you are tired of having three or more remote controls to turn on everything then there certainly is a lot to like about the Logitech Harmony 700 Remote. The MSRP for the remote is $149.99 but I have seen it on sale for $99 which makes it a very attractive entry-level Harmony remote control.
Excerpt: Controlling out home theater devices can be a tricky business, especially when there are other members of the household that are befuddled or frustrated with our current lineup of remotes peeking out behind couch cushions.
Conclusion: Performance The controller works perfectly. I've had no need to trawl through FAQs or press the Help Guide on the remote, everything worked immediately. I can switch between my DVD and Sky Box instantly, switch on and choose tracks on my iPod docking station and start up the Xbox 360 immediately.
Summary: The Logitech Harmony 700 delivers the bulk of the Harmony One's excellent feature set and ergonomics at a lower price point.
Pros: Powerful universal remote with great ergonomics; color LCD screen surrounded by five contextual buttons; most keys are backlit; Web programmable via Windows or Mac PCs; excellent button layout and overall design; supports custom sequences/macros; includes rechargeable batteries.
Cons: No RF compatibility; lacks touch screen and charging cradle found on more-expensive Harmony models; only controls six devices; somewhat of a budget feel; screen needs to be viewed head on.
