comparison useful linkage bloggeration… that word reminds me of Wicked… this woot, does not… this woot reminds me of Flicka… I’ll explain later.

… ok, its later… the explanation is on the blog… but the short version is this… Flicka sucks… worst movie of life… hehe.

How does a 659 compare to other Harmonys, like the 676 that I have?

Never mind, here’s a comparison:

Um, is this a good deal?

I’ve only seen Harmony remotes with color touch-screens.


#5

Any have use this ? Can this be programmed to any remote, such as a tuner card remote?

Meaning can this remote unlike my older sony be programmed regardless if it doesn’t support a code.


#6

does this work with tivo and my comcast remote?


#7

Not a bad deal for this product… it definitely sells for more in the department stores. Does anyone know if this will work with Media Centre?


#8

Ewww! Refurbished! Someone’s rancid popcorn oil between the keys as well as their sloughed-off skin!

(let’s see how fast this gets censored)


#9

It looks like a shoe!!!

If it has more than 4 buttons , then I can’t use it.


#10

they feel expensive!


#11

This was my first Harmony remote.

It’s like a gateway drug. I sold it to a friend of mine when I upgraded to the 880.

If you have a spouse/parent/etc. who complains about your home theater setup being too difficult to use when, “all I want to do is watch TV!” then this is what you want to give them to settle the bucket-o-remotes problem.


#12

I was holding the exact remote as I refreshed the page. Wierd. It is a great remote I paid about 175 for it about 1 year ago.


#13

Any Harmony product should… the comcast is a Motorola… it will work.


#14

It looks good but its refurbished, any had any problems with this remote?


#15

This would be a nice remote, but for a refurb the price is too high. Actually, the cable companies are giving these out when you sign up for service. Nice try, Woot.


#16

Referbs are much better than a “used” item, Atleast to use the referb term the item has been sent to the manufacturer, and tested by the company.


#17

Note: This post contains pricing information for future reference because it is generally not available elsewhere once the next Woot has been offered.

IT IS A UNIVERSAL RE-MONSTER!!!


#19

I have one in blue… Good remote and a good price… the FF and Rew buttons aren’t quite as convienently placed (above the arrows) as TIVO’s, but good function none the less


#20

Actually, the ability to tap into a database of remote settings (a) works and (b) is pretty nice (why did they change c-o-o-l into r-i-b-s???). The buttons aren’t so stupid as the other “does everything” kind of remote… they just work in a minimalistic kind of way.
