Logitech Harmony 650

 

Logitech has cranked out quite a crew of Harmony remotes over the years. All seem to handle well, control a decent amount of devices, and are unbelievably easy to program. So how can you pick which one is right for you? Well, if you're on a budget, the...

Cheapie McCheap ; Easy setup ; LCD "wakes up" upon pickup ; Comfortable layout

Not rechargeable ; No RF features ; 5-device limit ; Not compatible with Bluetooth-based products

Logitech’s least expensive universal remote lacks frills, but piles on value for basic home theater users.

Logitech Harmony 650 remote review

 

Fewer products are more appropriately named than the Logitech Harmony series of smart remotes. They do wonderful things to take home entertainment

Intuitive design ; (Relatively) affordable ; Extensive device database

Five device cap ; Dimly illuminated buttons ; No recharging circuitry

Logitech Harmony 650 Remote Control Review

 

We took a look at the Logitech Harmony 650, a universal remote control with interesting features.

Excellent ergonomic design ; Sturdy construction ; Excellent button layout ; Sensor turns it on when you pick it up ; Basic functions easily programmable ; Good color screen ; Batteries easily replaced

Time-consuming set up of logos for favorite channels ; Programming advanced functions a bit confusing ; Poor backlighting (Not all keys are backlit)

Logitech Harmony 650

 

If you're looking for a smart, all-inclusive remote, the Logitech Harmony 650 universal remote is here for you and here to make your life simpler. Yes, there are only five devices that can be programmed to the remote, but for those of us who do not...

The ergonomic shape feels as if the remote was molded to fit your hand perfectly

Logitech should have allowed more than five devices to be programmed

Five programmable activity buttons is just one of the features that you'll love on this universal remote.

Logitech Harmony 650

 

Logitech makes some of the best universal remote controls on the market, and the 650 is the perfect match mix of high-end features and affordability.

Comprehensive device database ; Good ergonomics ; Colour screen

Only five devices allowed ; Setup demands patience

Optimising these macros takes time and patience, and will likely require you to change the way you use your equipment. If you don't always use the Harmony 650 to switch devices on and off for instance, you'll come unstuck if a gadget uses a power...

Logitech Harmony 650

 

The latest Logitech Harmony series is one of the best universal remotes you can buy for less than AU$150.

Powerful universal remote with great ergonomics ; Colour LCD screen surrounded by five contextual buttons ; Web programmable via Windows or Mac PCs ; Excellent button layout and overall design ; Supports custom sequences/macros ; Price tag

Only controls five devices ; Requires internet-connected PC to program ; Adding favourite channel icons is a bit more difficult than it should be

Works great until it breaks

 

Great remote, easy to program and works with all of my devices. Media center pc, Yamaha Tuner and Samsung TV

Ordering my 3rd one in 5 years. Maybe that's normal but I think a remote should last longer than that especially when it's used by adults only

All I can say is wow. I should have gotten this remote a long time ago. What caused me to purchase it is my 22 year old Pioneer Receiver/Amp. I picked up my remote for it the other day and it was dead. I was like man, because the Pioneer remote...

Bad USB Port

 

I bought this to replace an e 250 that finally gave up the ghost after 4 years. This is my second one of this type. The USB port failed on the first one, no way to program it. I had it all setup and tried to add some more function when I found the USB...

Not a touch screen so my wife can use it ; Handles all 4 of my devices with full function on all devices ; Battery life is good, about 3 months ; Easy to setup with download software

Program on line does not have all the functionality as the download software ; USB port failed on my first one, so I could not reprogram the remote. The remote worked fine with my original settings, just could not add to it. This one works fine
