Conclusion: While I wholeheartedly recommend the Harmony 720 and even the 890 , I still strongly suggest doing a little bit of research to find the right model number for you. If you don’t have very many devices or a PVR, you might opt for the cheaper 510 model. Likewise, if you want a really spiffy high-end remote, you could always spring for the Harmony 1100 with a touch screen display that looks like something out of Star Trek.
Summary: Usage, Findings and Conclusion
I have spent a good deal of time with the Harmony 720 lately and am very pleased with its performance and presentation in all aspects. Simple and easy to understand commands make programming the unit a breeze. For those users who require more complex commands, you have the ability to adjust even the smallest factors such as delay time between macro commands.
Excerpt: Anyone that knew Harmony before they were purchased by Logitech knew that they made some of the most user friendly remotes on the market. Perhaps not so ironically, Logitech has the distinction of making some of the most user friendly PC peripherals . Maybe that’s why there was little objection to Logitech’s takeover. Or maybe people were waiting to test the first batch of remotes from this dynamic duo before passing judgment.
Pros: Color screen; tilt sensor; easy setup; intuitive interface
Cons: Might annoy some power users with lack of access to direct editing
