Our take on the Logitech® Harmony® 700

by Kristen Schaub
Logitech

Logitech's Harmony 700 makes controlling your home theater system amazingly easy. It has four dedicated activity buttons to keep things simple — even houseguests unfamiliar with your system can operate it with pushbutton ease. A color LCD screen shows icons for your favorite channels, as well as more advanced commands for each of your devices. Straightforward Internet-based setup makes getting started a snap. And the included rechargeable batteries and AC power adapter mean you won't have to fumble around for batteries when you're hustling to turn on the game.

Program your remote easily over the web
Connect your Harmony remote to your computer with the supplied USB cable to get started. Go to the Harmony Remote website and answer a few simple questions about your components and how they're set up. When you're done, the site automatically programs your remote accordingly. Plus, it remembers information about your setup, making it quick and easy to reprogram the remote if you add components down the road.

Intuitive controls
Four dedicated/preset "Activity" buttons offer one-touch control of your system. For example, to play a DVD, just press "Watch a Movie." The 700 instantly evaluates your system, turns on or off the appropriate components, selects the proper settings, and starts the DVD player. The remote's screen can change to show the controls you'll need for each of your devices, and will even show color icons for your favorite TV channels. And should you need it, Harmony's famous "Help" button provides simple, step-by-step on-screen instructions to help you solve any problem quickly and easily.

From the review A review of the Logitech Harmony 700
"Aesthetically, the all-black color, curvy design, and solid feel of the 700 make it seem worth more than you're actually paying for it. And the rubber buttons are also a nice touch, as the hard plastic buttons on our previous remote could sometimes be a little unfriendly."

Features

Overview: The Harmony 700 Universal Remote provides simple, intuitive control of even the most elaborate entertainment system for anyone in the family. The remote setup is accomplished through Harmony's interactive web site. The Harmony 700 Remote can control up to 6 audio/video components.

Setup: The Harmony Remote Activities are configured through unique Web Wizard tools on HarmonyRemote.com. Using Logitech's Smart State Database of over 225,000 electronic devices from over 5,000 manufacturers, you can easily customize the remote to your system. The database, together with IR learning, ensures support of all infrared-controlled devices made by any manufacturer, including Televisions, A/V Receivers, Cable/Satellite Boxes, VCRs, DVD Players, CD Players, Game Consoles, Mini Systems, Computers, and Home Automation devices.

Color Screen: The Harmony 700's color screen shows what you need. You can see icons for your favorite channels as well as the commands you need for the devices you are using. The smart display can even provide help if you need it

Simple Button Layout: The Harmony 700's buttons are intuitive and grouped in ways that make sense, so its simple for anyone to use.

One-Touch Operation: Four "one-click" activity buttons automatically turn on the proper devices and select the appropriate input settings depending on what you want to do. No more complicated lists of what to turn on or which buttons to select.

System Off: One push of the off button turns off all the equipment in your system.

Help: If you have a problem completing an activity function, the help button will guide you through the fix using the remote's color display. The remote will ask a series of questions, such as "Is the TV on?" or "Is the volume turned up?" in order to troubleshoot the problem and correct it.

Flash Memory: The settings are stored in a non-volatile flash memory so they will never be lost, even when the battery needs charging.

Rechargeable Ni-MH Batteries: The Harmony 700 operates off of two "AA" rechargeable Ni-MH batteries (included). The batteries should be charged using the supplied USB/AC adapter for 3 hours to reach full charge status. Once fully charged the remote can go a week between charges.

Note: Use only Ni-MH replacement batteries, size "AA" R6 with a minimum of 1800mA.
