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.
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.
