The good: The Logitech Harmony 670 is a throwback to the comfortable peanut-shape design of old, with DVR-friendly buttons placed in the center. It retains the same great features and functionality that the Harmony line is known for, such as activity or device-based command, PC/Mac programmability, and a contextual LCD screen.
The bad: The 670 isn't as sleek or as stylish as the more-recent "flat" Harmony models. Moreover, it lacks the rechargeable battery/cradle and color LCD found on higher-end Harmony models. Even with an upgrade in place, the Web-based programming can still intimidate nontechie users. And the remote's silver finish scuffs pretty easily.
The bottom line: The Logitech Harmony 670 may not be the coolest-looking universal remote, but it's one of the easiest to use, especially for DVR users.
Well worth the time to set up

Pros: Just about everything, but in particular, the activity buttons make using the remote super easy
Cons: Depending on the components you are trying to program, the set up can be difficult.

Summary: I received this item as a Christmas gift, and I love it! The only component I had difficulty getting synced with this remote was my Sony TV, but I did eventually get everything to work. The same cannot be said for other universal remotes I tried. The coolest feature is the concept of activity buttons. Just hit the "Watch TV" button and the remote will turn on the tv, receiver, cable/satellite box, and switch to the correct inputs when necessary. Then, you don't need to switch the remote to each individual component when you want to do something (i.e. change the volume on the receiver or bring up the Directv guide).
The limitations of the included software are far outweighed by the advantages. No more guessing or searching for the correct programming codes to get this to work with your component. No more searching for the right remote when you want to do anything.
I would recommend this to anyone interested in a great universal remote.
Don't Waste Your Money

Summary: This remote is a huge disappointment. I can't believe all of the good reviews it's gotten. We have to replace the batteries every 2-3 weeks. We switched to Lithium batteries and they lasted 6 weeks. You shouldn't have to change batteries that often. The problem is the remote NEVER shuts off. When all devices are off, the LCD stays on. Customer support states that this is normal. Has nobody else encountered this problem or do they think it's normal to replace the batteries so often?? Also, every once in awhile the remote becomes unprogrammed and it needs to be refigured all over again. Very frustrating. We spent way too much money on this remote for the amount of problems we've had with it. Not a happy customer and I wish we could take it back.

Pros: Pretty blue lights (sarcasm).
Cons: Hard to program; hard to read the screen if you wear reading glasses.

Summary: Programming this was worse than anything else I’ve ever purchased and I never could get this work with my Phillips TV. Also I found the screen impossible to read, so where it did work, I still had to hunt for my glasses to use it. If you don’t use glasses to read, and have lots of patients to program, then you might be alright, but mine just ended up in the junk draw.

- Description: Designed specifically for Digital Video Recorder (DVR) users, the Harmony 670 features convenient controls that make it easy to command TiVO and other popular DVRs. Essential buttons including "Record", "Play", "Pause", "Advance", "Rewind", "Skip Forward", "Skip Back", and a directional pad are centrally located, and convenient "Sound" and "Picture" buttons help you tame tough configurations such as switching aspect ratios or sound modes. Harmony's activity-based control makes it easy to manage your entire home entertainment system; just press a conveniently color-coded activity button ("Watch Movie"), and the remote will power on your TV, DVD, stereo receiver, set all the inputs and even press "Play"! There's also a handy "Help" button so that anyone from the kids to the babysitter can access programming.
