The Logitech Harmony 650 series needs to be setup using a computer, you can’t do everything directly from the remote itself. Switch the 650 on and it’ll prompt you to connect it using microUSB, input the names of all your device to check that they’re present and correct within Logitech’s database.

Once all the devices have been inputted you can let the software add activity macros automatically or pick your own selection. The software tries to make the process as accessible as possible by formulating each macro through a series of simple questions, such as “will you use your TV or PVR to control volume when watching television?”

Harmony 650 remote is curvaceous but ultimately more comfortable in-hand, its size demands two-handed use though. Logitech has added four physical buttons for the key activities of watching movies or listening to music although these activities can also comfortably be relayed using the color screen.

Once the annoying setup process has been finished, the Logitech Harmony 650 will replace a handful of remotes with style, and the macros really do work. It’s disappointing not to see some more updates to the core functionality, still no built-in Bluetooth and the way you setup the thing hasn’t changed significantly in years.
