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. Simplicity is key when keeping your significant other happy, so the Harmony series is certainly a great concept.
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. In contrast to the $249 Logitech Harmony One, the Harmony 700 clearly is not as shiny, fancy and polished as evident in the casing and overall subtle design.
Excerpt: If you like watching TV or movies the chances are you've got a couple of boxes under your television. That means a stack of remotes, which no doubt gets annoying. Yes it may give you a sense that you've gone out and spent a good couple of months wages to earn the right to have five, if not more, remotes sitting pretty on the arm of your chair, but let's be honest, it's annoying, and a bit geeky.
Pros: Easy software set-up, controls six remotes, well built, comfortable to hold
Excerpt: If you're after a universal remote, buying a Logitech Harmony is the way to go. The more pertinent question is: which model in the burgeoning range is the one to get? All Harmony remotes share the same key strength – the set-up software. Simply tell the web-based system what kit you've got, and it will recommend activities that will utilise them. These are then mapped to a single button press on the remote.
Pros: Easy, web-based set-up, compatible with almost every device, well built and ergonomic
Cons: Controls fewer devices than older, cheaper models
