That's actually a very good price for what I've heard is a very good remote. Since it's also compatible with my Roku 2, I'm in for one.

If I didn't already have a different model, I'd be in. I have the 300 (no screen) and it works like a charm for my TV, DVD player, and Roku box. When I ditched cable I had a little panic over the potential for losing the Roku remote (you can't operate it from the box like a DVD player). This was the only mass-market universal remote I found that works with a Roku.

Picked this up a few months ago for the same price at Radio Shack. It works reasonably well and is quite sturdy so far. Only downside is that despite knowing which input each device is on, it has a tendency to switch to the wrong iteration of that input (HDMI3 instead of HDMI1, for example). A bit irritating, but the Help menu figures it out fairly quickly.

I've had this remote for a while now and really like it. Makes life simpler for the parents and in-laws. Very easy to set up by connecting to the computer. Took 3 remotes to 1. Also very well balanced and easy to hold.

I have the 300 and think it is easy to configure, use and the batteries last a long time. I setup it to work with my Win-7 Media Center & TV.

So, I purchased the 650 a few months ago to operate my Vizio TV with internet apps. (no DVR or digital guide). I thought the favorites buttons would be helpful for selecting channels and they are. The main issue I have with this remote is that the top function buttons (Watch TV, Watch a movie, etc.) are not too configurable. They always put the remote into a function mode. Once the mode gets out of sync with my TV, the buttons get confusing as to what the buttons do. I need to re-review the manual to see if I can get this to work better.

Have it. Love it. Even has a motion sensor that lights up the entire remote when you pick it up or tilt it slightly. Even with that, I'm still on the original batteries since January!

Paid about $10-$15 more new at Sam's. So, this seems like a decent price for a refurbished one.

Still using a refurbished 680 for the Theater Room that is going strong after about 5 years. I actually think I like the 650 (cheaper model) better though!

Got this remote new for the same price as a Black Friday deal. I really like it. It's great to only have one remote around for everything. Only two minor complaints: 1) The sensor on our Xbox 360 is very picky about where in the room you can control it from with this remote - you have to be nearly in front of it. This is not the case with the actual Xbox controllers. 2) This remote has been dropped too many times and the batteries no longer fit tightly, despite bending the contacts back in. This means that occasionally the batteries lose connection and the remote resets back to its initial state, rather than staying in the state for whatever activity is currently running. To fix this I just restart the activity while covering the front of the remote with my hand. This isn't really the fault of the remote though, just our fault for dropping it.

Overall though, a very nice remote and very convenient to have replaced all our other ones!

I got one of these DailySteals before and don't use it because there is too much of an input latency. Takes a half a second to send the command. So if hit down 4 times in a row to scroll down to a show or something it will send out the down command every half a second instead of right after eachother. Highly annoying for navigating anything.

Could just be a defective model. Anyone else have this problem?

Got a refurb Harmony 650 from Tigerdirect 2 weeks ago for 30 shipped. I've enjoyed it!

I've got the 600 and love it. The ability to press one button and it automatically turn on and off multiple devices and change input according to the activity I choose is a life saver when you are wrangling a one year old at the same time.

Picked up this bad boy for $70 last year, so $30 is a steal!

I had an old model 550 until it was stepped on by one of the kids (no, it does not hold up to that kind of abuse!) and now have the 900 model with a touch screen. All of these Harmony remotes are great in my opinion: easy to set up, ability to customize, great "one touch" feature, and goes beyond just audio/video equipment. I have remote ceiling fans, lights, and central air, all controllable with one of these. In my opinion, no other remotes even come close to comparable.

Ordered, but haven't been shipped yet. Status is reported as "OPEN". I guess it is one of those rare cases, per email originally received: "Please note that it can take up to 6 business days (M-F) for your item to ship. In rare cases, an unforeseen delay may occur which can extend the shipping time of your order."
