|Today I am going to check out the latest remote control from Logitech called the Harmony 700. This is a budget offering in the Harmony line, but still pack in most of the features we have come to know and love in the Harmony universal remote line. If you need a good remote control to make operating your home theater easier, the Harmony 700 may be just what you need. The Harmony 700 is very similar in key layout to the Harmony One and the Harmony 900 remotes that I have reviewed before. The biggest visual different between the 700 and the 900 is that the 700 is made from flat black plastic rather than the glossy plastic and lacks the ergonomic back that the Harmony One features that help to guide your hands to the correct buttons in the dark....read the full review|
Easy setup, works well5/12/2013
Deluxe universal remote for your home theater system works well, strong output signal. Plug it into a PC with the included cavle, go to myharmony.com to set it up. Interestingly, the Harmony software only allows 6 devices while myharmony.com allows 8, so don't bother with the software. The "Activities" paradigm makes it easy to operate a complicated system.
Does what is says.4/16/2013
Works perfectly in every mode. The only annoying part is that the top buttons above the lcd screen do not light up. Knew that before purchasing, so it's not like I didn't expect that.
Good remote. If you really want to take the time and tweek it out, you can make it do practically anything. All though you are limited in the number of individual devices that the device can learn, you can cheat and actually set up buttons for other devices within others. My only gripe about this device is that it has rechargeble batteries (good) but there is absolutely no indicator as to there state, you don't even get a warning...simply "Charge Battery" -U cant do anything until you charge.
remote works well. it took a little while to get used to the software. Had to learn to be patient after selecting "next" . not sure if it was the slow network or software.Using the software it learned the settings of my old Logitech just fine.
A great remote that can operate up to five devices. I love this remote!!!
THis is my favorite Harmony remote. Easy to use and easy to program.
Programed all ok, happy !!!!! Changed tv dvd & amp. Cannot delete or over/ride old settings. USELESS NOW
The set up wasn't as intuitive as I had hoped and has required many manual customized changes in order to have it work properly. Even though set up is incredibly involved and much more involved than I had been led to believe, it works well once you have put in all the work to get it set up properly.
Tops the others !6/9/2012
Quite flawless, durable and a great matte black finish. Only a few minor issues that can be solved with the HELP icon.
Does everything I need it to do, ergonomics are excellent !
Great product at a great price does everything it says. Id buy another. Best remote for price
Great universal remote4/13/2012
I was so happy with the remote that I bought one for my wife and for my sister-in-law! The software allows for relatively easy programming, although it can get a bit difficult if you have a very complex setup. Activities are great! It even auto-corrects if yo move the remote too soon and a component doesn't turn on/off. Nice features!
Great remote control for that price2/15/2012
I got the refurbished one, it has some signs of use, very little and almost unnoticeable on the remote itself but more in the power adapter. It performs very well, actually better than expected. I reduced one star from the Ease of Use rating, because the Logitech software to configure the remote control needs some improvements; the major one I see is that you need to obtain the TV channels icons from another site. But overall is a great control for the price.
Nice Remote. Very user friendly. Sometimes asks too many questions.
Purchase this remote as an upgrade to an older Logitech Harmony remote I owned. Arrived quickly and works like a charm!
Easy to setup and simple to use.7/15/2011
This is one of the best, if not the best, universal remote controls at this price. It fearures rechargeable batteries that will hold a charge for up to a week between charges and it is very simple to setup and use. Just create an online account with Logitech, type the model numbers of each component you intend to use with it, answer a few easy questions about how you like to control your stuff, then download the programming to your remote with the USB cable included. It works extremely well and even has a help button on the remote to troubleshoot any issues you may have once it's programmed. The only downside to this remote is that you must have a computer that's connected to the internet in order to program it. I highly recommend this remote!
