Powerful universal remote with great ergonomics; color LCD screen surrounded by five contextual buttons; Web programmable via Windows or Mac PCs; excellent button layout and overall design; supports custom sequences/macros; sub-$100 price tag.

Only controls five devices; requires Internet-connected PC to program; adding favorite channel icons is a bit more difficult than it should be; the superior Logitech Harmony Smart Control is available for $40 to $50 more.

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.

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 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...

"Horribly difficult to program."

 

Unless you are an audio-video-hi-fi wizard don't buy this confusing remote. It's not user friendly. It will go wrong and confound you and it's really not a convenience.

Organizes several components on one remote.

"Forgets" its controls over certain components, virtually impossible to correct.

Consumer review by:

"Ah...it is a remote control device."

 

In the newsletter please indicate, blue ray player, remote control, television. I did not know a Panasonic DMP-BDT210 was a blue ray player.

It looks nice.

I did not know what a Logitech Harmony 650 was, until I clicked and burrowed into the ad.

Consumer review by:

"Cheap screen/terrible customer service"

 

Apparently I pressed the touch screen too hard and it cracked. Think about that: it's a touch screen, and you have to press it softly. That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. So now I can't read anything on my screen. What kind of shoddy material is...
