The Harmony 700 Remote Control provides a fantastic control experience for all sorts of entertainment systems. The Harmony 700 Remote control gives people the power to control home-theater systems with up to six devices in a stylish package that is easy enough for the entire family to use. The Harmony 700 includes a color LCD screen for easy browsing of your favorite channel icons, texture and paint finishes that feel great and resist fingerprints, and perfectly shaped, back-lit, soft-touch buttons.

The Harmony 700 Remote Control gives you the ability to play, pause, rewind and replay all your favorite shows. To recharge your remote, simply plug it into a wall outlet when you're not using it. And a convenient low-battery icon appears on the screen when it's time to recharge.

The Harmony 700's brilliant color screen makes it easy to see and use what you want. It also displays your commands and devices, front and center, so they're simple to see and select. The Smart Display offers on-screen help if you ever need it. The Harmony 700 replaces up to 6 remotes with a simple all-in-one entertainment control. The Harmony 700 Remote Control will never be out of date because Logitech supports your remote with the world's largest online A/V control database. So your remote works with more than 225,000 entertainment devices from over 5,000 brands. And if you add new devices in the future, it's easy to update your remote right from your computer.

One of the most interesting features of the Harmony 700 is the way it can help you recover from incorrect delay settings. IR delays are pretty complicated stuff, and when they’re not set correctly your device might not turn on or an input may not function correctly. Now, with the Harmony 700 Remote Control, if you use the on-remote Help button repeatedly to solve the same delay-related problem, the remote will recognize that and prompt you to fix the setting right on the remote.

The remote feels light and is made of cheap plastic which doesn't give the impression that it would handle normal drops and wear and tear that well. Also a major downside is that it only controls 6 devices in comparison to Harmony 670 Remote Control, that seems to do everything the Harmony 700 Remote Control does, but controls 15 devices.

Great Gift For:
The Harmony 700 Remote Control will be the best option for people who already have several different electronic gadgets or are planning to upgrade to some newer models.

Price and Where to Buy
The Harmony 700 Remote Control is selling for $134.99 on Amazon.com.
