I had the Harmony 700 for years until the printing on the buttons wore off. I replaced it this year with the Smart Control and hub, and I've been very pleased. The remote sends to the hub by RF so you don't need to aim it in line-of-sight. The hub then transmits to the devices by IR, wired IR blaster, Wifi (e.g., Roku) or Bluetooth (Amazon Fire TV), depending on the device. With the 700, my devices would sometimes get out of sync because an IR command was missed or the sofa arm was in the way. I regularly used the Help button to fix the problem, so I was concerned that the Smart Control lacks a Help button. Well, it doesn't need one because the commands are more reliable. Only once or twice did the TV power get out of sync, but that was because I changed activities too fast for the TV. To correct, you just start the activity again. I also thought I would miss the screen for custom buttons, but I don't since I mapped functions such as Zoom to a long-press on a button. Yes, you can use a phone or tablet to control the hub but I rarely do unless I can't reach the remote or am in another room and want music.

Pros: Smart Control is faster and more reliable. RF signaling to the hub. Hub can control some devices over Wifi or Bluetooth. Easier programming using a mobile app or browser. Mobile app can act as a remote. Can control hub with some home automation controllers and IFTTT. Battery lasts for months.

Cons: Remote has fewer buttons but you can double up functions by using a long press. No screen. No Help button. Remote is limited to 6 activities (3 activity buttons, each with short press and long press). Buttons are not backlit.

I do miss having backlit keys, but otherwise am happy with the Smart Control and would buy it again.

just about the best price ever for this brand new. if you don't know why someone would pay $70 for a remote, you obviously don't own one.

I've been wanting one of these for awhile, so I went ahead and ordered it this time. Can this be used with Amazon Echo to control my whole A/V stack with voice commands?

I didn't catch the deal from several days ago, just saw this and ran out to by local BB. 1 left and lucky enough to get it.

I had the Harmony 650 that wasn't being used for a while because I added RF components awhile back.

After JUST having bought this and setting it up, I have to say, the new Harmony Smart Control is pretty nice. I LOVE the feel of it. The buttons are nice and firm, and that sand texture backing feels awesome.

The setup via mobile app is much much nicer then the previous myharmony crap. Faster and more intuitive.

Got all my devices and activities setup with my TV, tivo, roku and soundbar. Everything worked first shot without a hitch.

Can it control multiple TVs?

Yes why? Considering to buy. Is the hub necessary for the remote to function?

I got this a week back to replace my old Harmony One and I just couldn't like it. without a screen it's a pain for anyone new to know what's going on and almost forces you to use the iOS/Android app. It's neat, but spend extra and get one with a screen and ability to use RF.

Is this the latest and greatest?
What do you get if you pay more to step up to the next better version of smart remotes?

(I'm just about getting fed up with updating my old harmony 900 and this one definitely looks like a good replacement).
