The resetting issue just happened to me today so replaced the battery and problem solved.

Basically the same as the 650 but with rechargeable batteries. Charges through the remote with micro usb.

I must say though, my 650s have been more reliable than these. Haven't pin pointed why but the batteries seem to have issues charging on the 2 I have and now they just use standard batteries, because I was sick of trying to get the damn things to charge. The help menu seems to come up more than needed as well but I think that may be user related. Just my experience though. They seem to work better with standard batteries though and that is always an option if you have charging issues as I did.

Looks like the 650 is now the 665 at BBY and is also $50 but supports 10 devices instead of 8.

700?

I thought this was 640 and 650 series.

What's in the 700? Looks same.

I threw the rechargeables away in mine, you are better off picking up a 650 in the 30 dollar range if you don't have to have a rechargeable remote. Overall a decent remote, but I liked my 550 a little better.

I agree with most here. you're better off with the 650 series. This thing is very easy on the batteries and I have yet to replace the first set of alkalines I put in it about a year ago.

My 650 resets every two damn seconds. So sick of it. And I see tons of reviews complaining about that. Seems the 700 does not have this issue.

Even a soft drop on a couch cushions from 2 inches resets it.

Hmmm. That seems like a different problem than mine.

I've also had issues getting the 700 model to charge. I'm currently on my 3rd unit & it's charging the rechargeable batteries fine. My experience is that recharging works well for about 1 year, then the remote suddenly refuses to recharge...regardless of the brand of rechargeable batteries installed. Installing non-rechargeable batteries works fine, so I continue to use this model.

Bottom Line: If you are counting on using rechargeable batteries, I definitely do NOT recommend the 700 model. If you plan to use non-rechargeables, this is a great model!

If 700 model can also use non-rechargeable batteries, why would anyone go for 650 over 700?

I have the 650 and the 700. Both are similar in operation, though I feel the 700 has a clearer screen. I had the recharging issue on the 700 as well after letting the batteries completely die. I popped the batteries into my eneloop charger and it seems to work fine now.

I have used the Harmony's for years and love them. I just recently purchased the Hub and like that even better. No more missed commands because the IR signal is not pointed directly at the receiver. My Walmart still has the hubs for $58 in store and I would recommend them over the 650/700.
