Day to day use of a Harmony 700

  • Summary: My family and I have been using this remote since November 2011 and have not had any major issues with it. This is my first experience with any universal remote control. At the time of it's purchase (November, 2011), I needed to control a Directv receiver box, my A/V receiver, our DVD/VCR device, a Roku box and eventually, a home theater PC. I needed to keep the cost as reasonable as possible to keep it within the "spouse acceptance factor.
  • Pros: Allows use of one remote to control many devices. Rechargeable, meaning no expensive batteries to replace. Feels good in your hand.
  • Cons: My computer will NOT charge the power. Needs to use the wall charger that came with it.

Versatile Does all I need it to do

  • Summary: This is my first Harmony Universal remote and I like it a lot. Its not so huge and clunky that its uncomfortable to use. It was easy to program by plugging into the pc and going through the online configuration. The 700 is not the top of the line series, but it did everything for my purposes as I dont have a million devices and didnt need a touch screen on my remote.
  • Pros: Easy to program. Configurable with wide range of devices. Eliminates need for other remotes.
  • Cons: Slow to recharge. Sometimes drops commands. Cant put it in a default mode upon startup.

"It works, and has two configurators, basic and advanced"

allan_vancouver, CNET
27 February 2011
  • Pros: Windows and Mac OS support, plus Firefox support. Logitech Harmony Remote 7.7.0 software has significantly more function and flexibility than the default online setup. Good enough for my modest needs.
  • Cons: Documentation didn't indicate that Harmony Remote Software 7.7.0 was a downloadable alternative to the default "simple" online configurator. Backlight and a charging dock would be nice, but not essential for me.
