Why spend so much money on a remote when you can spend less than $25 for a URC WR7 that works very well and doesn't need to be charged all the time? Maybe that's why Logitech is getting out of this business.
I used that old URC WR7 but it is limited in how many "learned" commands you can use. I found myself having to go without some commands just to get others to work. Since I switched to the 650 life has been good with remotes! here's a quick review/guide of that model, and the 700 is very similar. http://thecreativealternative.com...50-remote/
Saved $100's thanks to the people here. Thank you!!!
Tempting. My 550 has been used so much half the buttons don't have readable letters/numbers any more... but the things still works great. I've had several universal remotes which caused much grief for me (from my wife), and the Harmony was the first one we could all get along with. I seriously hope Logitech doesn't dump the division.
They could scale the series back to 2 remotes maybe, high end and mid end. For the low end, the other universals like the URC stuff seems to appease the $20 crowd.
Thanks OP - something to replace my messed up 720 and 880.
Poking around, I saw that there is a possibility that this thing will actually do 8 devices if you program it with myharmony rather than the software, but that myharmony doesn't allow you to do as much tweaking as the software. Does anyone have the lowdown on this?

It looks as the only remotes Logitech is offering is the Touch (12) and the 650 (5), everything else is discontinued. There should be new models coming out soon, I don't see any with RF support. Even the LINK was discontinued, so no more Phone or Tablet remotes. I just picked up a cheap (Refurb) LINK and I really like it. If I saw this, I would have got the 700 as I needed to add one more device and the 650 only allows 5.
I had resetting issues with 2 650's.my 700's have been problem free. Get one while you can.
Trying to choose between this refurb or a new 650 at Radio Shack for ~$50 (after $10 coupon)...
Got mine today, this thing is slick. Brand new, perfect condition. I'm debating on ordering another. Backlit keys are great. I have the harmony one as well. I'm just stocking up in case the whole line gets discontinued. They're great remotes.
