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....

Color screen; tilt sensor; easy setup; intuitive interface

Might annoy some power users with lack of access to direct editing

The unique combination of stylish aesthetics and an intuitive interface is sure to impress everyone at first sight.

Editor's Note (February 19, 2009): The rating on this product has been changed due to competitive changes in the marketplace. Readers interested in this product should compare it to the more recent Logitech Harmony One .

The Logitech Harmony 720 offers a slighter better color screen and a slimmer, sexier design than those of Harmony's original color-screen model, the 880. This model also includes a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and docking station, and like other...

The remote could sit a little more securely in its dock, the Web interface may intimidate nontechie users, and the painted text labels printed on the case under the transport control buttons may rub off with extended use.

The combination of a color screen, a battery charger dock, and a sleek design makes the Logitech Harmony 720 one of the company's best universal remotes to date.

"Not all it's cracked up to be"

 

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...

Customizable

Cheap screen/hardware; terrible customer service

"Charging Dock useless after 2 yrs, can't charge anymore"

 

I loved this remote while it worked. After about 18 months of use it became increasingly difficult to get the remote positioned in the charging dock in a way that it would charge. For the last 2 or 3 months it had to be balanced just right at a crazy...

"Very easy to use."

 

The activities function works so well that my wife and six year old son can now switch between watching DVD's, DVR, and Live TV without assistance.

Web setup is not difficult but may be a little time consuming for non-techie consummers.

Buttons could be a little more ergonomic.

"OK, but not well built"

 

Overall I think this is a poorly built device for the money. The setup is difficult to maneuver, and it is falling apart WAY too soon. Would not buy harmony again.

Relatively Easy to use, works with a wide range of devices

Set up is very clunky, After a little more than a year buttons are starting to fail, doesn't sit on charger easily.
