Harmony 650 rocks 1/21/2013
Throughly satisfied with this universal remote. Configuration is simple thru the usb connection to a PC. Highly recommend it for anyone looking to replace several remotes.
Great Remote! 1/20/2013
Adam from Columbus, OH
I shopped for a while to figure out which remote would work best for my set up. I read a lot of mixed reviews on the Harmony 650, but I thought I would try it. Two weeks into it, I LOVE this remote. It works well, very easy to set up and the fact that you can customize it, makes it even better. Well worth the $70.
Great Buy!! 11/12/2012

The remote works great, seems there's always a problem getting it to connect whenever you first install the software, but after that it normally works flawlessly. Easy to use and super easy to set up!!
Works great but the backlight is a step downwards 11/6/2012
Chris H. from Chicago, Il
I have a Harmony 600 that I am very happy with. Nice backlit keys that make it very easy to see at night when all the lights are off. Motion sensing backlight is so incredible! However the 650 only illuminates around the keys and the label on the key, not the whole key itself. So much dimmer, a bit harder to see and therefore use.
In the end it isn't a huge deal as this remote performs flawlessly with that one exception. It only gets one notch down for the backlight issue.
Harmony 650 refurb 9/23/2012
Great product, simple setup, easy to use, and replaced a drawer full of lesser remotes!
The remote is great, however if held at a certain angle the remote stops working and it needs a little shaking, not sure if that a defect from refurbishing; going to keep an eye out for that.
Refurbished remote Harmony 650 8/13/2012
Would buy again.
Another great product from Logitech 8/13/2012
I needed a remote that worked with my particular devices (new & old) and this one did the trick. The online setup and configuration is great. The remote is not overly complicated given all that it can control. The ability of the remote to walk you through any problems is awesome. I was able to eliminate 4 remotes!! I'm very satisfied!
i got my first harmony remote several years ago and love it. When it started eating batteries like no tomorrow, I decided to upgrade. This remote is as good, and I look forward to many years of use. Harmony remotes are the only way to go.
Great remote. 6/19/2012
Works like a dream. Had a Harmony 200 before that was really buggy, so I was a little hesitant of another Harmony, let alone a refurbished one, but this thing is great. Very user friendly.
I recommend this product to anyone 6/19/2012
Vinod from Union City, NJ
It is fancy looking with a metallic finish on top. The buttons are well marked and the screen is just the right brightness - good enough in bright light but doesn't blind you if all the lights are out.
Great remote! 6/17/2012
Daniel Ogren from Seattle, WA
This remote is being used for a simple setup for my kid's playroom. I have a Sony 46" LCD TV with basic cable and a Roku streaming player. I have it setup for "Watch TV" and "Watch Roku". Although the software is very powerful, the Roku set-top box is initially setup as a DVD player so requires a few minor changes to the name and the button setup. It took a few iterations through the setup but once configured, works very well. The remote is comfortable in the hand and intuitive to use.
Excellent product; great value 6/17/2012
Looked new. Minimalist packaging. I am going to order another
Great Buy 6/16/2012
Love this product! Set-up and sync works perfectly. Received it with a very slight paint chip but being a refurb, completely understandable.
Excellent Remote 6/15/2012
I love this remote! I wish I had bought it long ago. Great design, easy to program and just an overall solid product.
Wonderful remote 6/15/2012
Works great, transferred old settings, great flexibility.
Does the job well 6/9/2012
Excellent product. Easy to use with one button full function. Set Up took less than 10 minutes and works awesome. If you have more than 2 devices in your Home Theatre this is a must especially for the price.
Great item 6/8/2012
I love harmony remotes and this one is the best one yet. The battery door is strong and secure. It feels very solid and comfortable in your hand. The button layout and availability is improved and pressing them provide good feedback.
Great remote 4/22/2012
Updated from a Logitech 550 and this was a great improvement. The components are turned on faster with this and it updated very quickly through the software. I like the color screen as well.
Nice Remote 3/23/2012
Russell from Lone Tree, CO
Works perfectly as suggested. Downloaded the software from online, added my devices and "activities". Also added favorite channels. All devices on/off with the push of a button.
Only thing I would like to see added is an actual "List" and "Back" button with the main buttons - I use these buttons all the time with my directv remote. I realize these buttons are still available, it would just be nice to have them with the other similar buttons.
Logitech Does not Support refurbished Harmony 650 3/15/2012
I received unit in a timely manner but 9 out of 10 times the Logitech Harmony remotes need Logitech assistance. I am a fairly advance techie and this would have been my 3rd Harmony 650 but if it is more than 90 days old Logitech support will cost you $29. It's a great product but buy it NEW and if you need support contact them within 90 days. It can be purchased for less than $50 so forgo a previous owned or refurbished unit. Once programmed correctly they work great..
Great job! 3/15/2012
Got the product in great condition, several days before I expected it. Great job!
Great Value Harmony Remote... 3/14/2012
Picked up the 650 for under $40 shipped and it is a steal. Same features as the Harmony 700 just does not charge batteries.
Great Universal remote 3/14/2012
Brian from Gorham, ME
I did not have any problem getting this remote setup and running using the included USB cable and down loaded software. Note: make sure you have all equipment manuals before getting started, guessing model numbers will only cause problems.
I have a Samsung 40" LCD TV, LG Blu-Ray / Amplifier and Direct TV HD Receiver. The wife loves the single button "Watch TV" and "Watch a Movie" the most. No longer need 2-3 remotes. Refurbished item looks is like new. Very happy with item.
Easy to Setup and Use 3/14/2012
Jeremy from Lima, OH
Very simple to setup and to use. Love it...replaced 5 different remotes like a dream
Great Product 3/13/2012
This is my second Logitech remote because my first one was stolen when my home was broken into.
Best Remote Ever 3/9/2012
The Logitech Harmony line of universal remotes is the best on the market. With one button I can turn everything on that I need to watch TV or anything else. This thing is a lifesaver when you have a 2 yr old screaming to watch his movie!
Awesome especially for the price 3/8/2012
Got it up and running in 15 minutes. Works perfectly so far. I've wanted one of these for a while but didn't want to spend over $150 for it. Go it as a re-certified for less than forty bucks.
Very Limited 3/8/2012
JT from North Carolina
I bought this remote when the remote control for my DVD player quit working. I was attracted by all of the functions it advertised. I am a tech-savvy person and loaded the remote exactly as the instructions said using the USB cable and software. All appeared to load properly, but the remote does not do what it says it will do. It will not control my Dish Network DVR at all - nothing, nada, nil. When I use the macro buttons to change from watching live TV to watching a DVD, it jams up my relatively new Vizio TV for over an hour or so. Not even the Vizio remote will allow me to change input sources, so I have to use the buttons on the back of the screen. Eventually it forgets and resumes working as usual, but the first time I was freaked out to say the least. The remote does operate my DVD player as it should, which is why I gave it a 2. This is really the only thing I can use it for. I could have probably just bought another DVD remote for much less than this one. I was quite disappointed in this unit.

Nice remote 3/7/2012
JPT from North Carolina
Nice remote for multiple pieces of equipment. Makes watching TV, movies and DVD's much easier. Now kids can just push one button and not have to turn multiple pieces of equipment on or off when they switch.
Good So Far. 3/7/2012
easy to set up and works great. Just hope that the referb holds up.

Clear the clutter from your coffee table! 3/6/2012
CoryJ from Chattanooga, TN
So the remote does take a few minutes to set up via the web, but I was very impressed with the quality and functionality of the website. There's even an automated helper on the remote to help you iron out any issues with the programming. It's ergonomic and comfortable to hold and the set up is so complete that even if you have to use more than one device for an activity, you don't have to switch devices - it knows which device to control (i.e. channel on one device, volume on another, etc). I give it 5 stars all around.
Great item 3/6/2012
I was a little worried that the directions would be difficult, but all you had to do was plug in the remote into your computer and key in the model numbers of your devices your programming. It took me a second to double check the input connections, but the website is a breeze. I do wish for how high-tech it is, it would give you some notification that the batteries are running low. Spent extra time programming it twice before realizing the batteries were bad. Popped new ones and it was fine.
Do Not Buy!!!! 2/28/2012
I have had several Harmony remotes and purchased this model to replace an old one. This model has a serious problem rebooting itself all the time. I don't know about the other models but definetely avoid this one. Search the reviews at other sites before you consider this one.
Billiant! Changes input on TV magically! 9/13/2011
Jeff from Fruit Heights, UT
I was concerned that the remote wouldn't know how to operate with my INPUTS menu. I have to navigate up and down, but this remote knows the secret to sending the right signal to jump to the correct INPUT without navigating the list. It takes some time to get used to the "activities" concept, but I much prefer this over the 4 remotes I've replaced now that I've gotten accustomed to it. Happy to have found it!
Like previous review, not thrilled about the power down when choosing another activity.
It works. 8/19/2011
A little tricky to set up since you have to go on the net, but not too bad. Seems like if I have something going (listen to music), I have to do a power down of all in order to do another function. Not a big deal though. And it does seem to work on all my devices.

Works Great 8/9/2011
The website interface was a little temperamental. But, after I got it all programmed the way I wanted it worked exactly as described. Until I received this remote I had to leave the surround sound system on all the time and switch the inputs on it manually. Now I just push "watch TV" "watch a movie", "listen to music" or even the command that I programmed for "watch a VHS tape" and everything that should be on, turns on and switches to the correct input and output. When you are done, you just push one button and everything turns off.
