"Works great"on by radman61
Pros Buttons easy on the fingers
Controls all of my components
Software setup very easy to use
Cons Some button labels are hard to read in the dark but this could be my aging eyes.
When starting from system off, the TV is not set to the correct input if different from the last input it was on.
Summary Overall, this remote is a vast improvement over my last remote (Harmony 550). The buttons are much easier on my fingers and for the most part everything works great. I believe that it is possible to insert a delay before certain commands are sent to a device. If so, this may solve the incorrect input issue with the TV.
Pros Back lit when you pick it up, Its sylish and fits well in your hand, graet price
Cons Not rechargable and has a limit of 5 devices, will not work with RF or Bluetooth, model numbers to all devices are required and it takes time to look it all up.
Summary Great product, works on all my devices, programming was fun and easy, took about an hour from start to finish.
Pros Once programmed, works well for five devices
Cons the web based synch fails frequently. There seems to be a USB driver bug that causes it to fail at 99%. Tech support is reachable, but somewhat surly and unusually clueless.
Summary with the synch problem, feels like an orphan product.
Pros Easy to program and controls multiple devices
Cons Buttons are cheap and wear out
Logitech downgraded this model to 5 devices from the 6 it originally supported.
Summary Even after going through 3 Logitech's because of the cheap buttons that wear out, till today, I would recommend this remote. I bought a new TV and Logitech decided that my remote could no longer support 6 devices today. Thus I have the option of not programming the new TV into the remote or deleting a device.
Pros Web programming makes it easy to program. Reliable. It uses generic replaceable batteries, The 650's take normal alkaline, which last a long time, or can use generic rechargeables. Macro programming is relatively easy.
Cons Programming for the Apple TV takes some thought...or time for trial and error. The web tool does not set the remote up as am apple tv remote easily.
Summary I have two 650's (amongst other remotes) and they both work flawlessly. The five device limit is not a problem for the price, which is quite commonly discounted. Being able to use generic alkaline or rechargeable batteries is a plus, my other remotes that are remote-specific rechargeables are prone to have difficulty recharging.
