Default Harmony 600 vs. 700

I currently have the Harmony 520 and love it!!

Last night I was at a local retailer looking at there selection of Harmony remotes. They had the 300i, 600 and 700 models. I would like to upgrade my 520 to either the 600 or 700, but can't determine the differences in models for the price differences and if it's worth the extra cash. The 600 = $80.00 and 700 = $150.00. The only differences I see is a color screen and channel logo depiction on the remote screen, but don't know if it has additional functions. If these are the only differences it isn't worth an additional $70.00 to me.

I intend to reprogram the 520 to control my secondary AV system.


So the reaal questionn is..... What are the differences between the Harmony 600 and 700 models?

Thanks,
Matthew in MN

Another Question....

My 520 will control "12 Functions" - I currently operate the TV, Satilite Receiver, DVD/VHS Player, BluRay Player, Audio Receiver. I also use the remote to power up/down the Wii & Playstation2 along with the TV input changes.

Now the Harmony 600 says it replaces "5 remotes " and the 700 replaces "6 remotes", but how many "Functions" is that??? Will i still be safe with either or????

Thanks,

I called the Harmony Sales line and asked a few questions..... Desided to go with the 700. Great remote from what I've seen so far!! Better look feel and over all functionality over the 520, which I thought was an Awesome remote until now!!

Good choice on the 700. One important feature is it also has rechargeable batteries. Where as the 600 uses two AA batteries. Also I prefer black over silver.
