Haven't tried the price match yet but Gibby's is selling the Harmony 650 for $58+shipping+tax. Amazon has it for $84 on prime.

Good for people who want an all in one remote.

This thing regularly goes on sale for $50-60, from Amazon and Best Buy.

The more updated model is the Harmony 665 however. The 665 pretty much identical, although it supports 10 devices and is black. The 665 often goes on sale for about $60.

amazon only lists 3rd party sellers.

I’ve got 3 of these never paid more than 45$ a piece. This remote is at least 4-5 years old.
Works well and am happy with it. Mint I wouldn’t say this is a hot deal by any means.

I got one from Shaw for $24 when they were clearing them out, and I regularly see them on sale for $50 or so. Mine is actually a 700, which is identical to the 650 except that it comes with 2 rechargeable NiMH AA batteries and charging from the microUSB port is enabled.

You can likely do a bit better than this price if you're willing to wait a bit. But it's certainly worth $50. I wouldn't be without a couple of Harmony remotes.

Best Buy and Amazon and others. A couple of times a year IIRC.

A brief google yields a thread I started on an old Boxing Week sale on the Harmony 665 for $50 at Best Buy.

Price of the 665 then went up to only $60 the following week in January.

The 650 is much, much older than that. It was released in 2010. The 665 is more recent, a few years old, basically the 650 with slight upgrade and a new colour. I thought they would discontinue the 650 after the 665 was released but they didn't for some reason.

I take it then that they fixed the issue where when the batteries were low enough (not that you were given a warning of their state) the remote would reboot when you tried to perform a command? I had a support ticket open with them years ago and went through 3 remotes sent by Logitech before we collectively identified it was a battery power level problem. Firmware could likely have solved it by then but hardware revision equally likely... if it has?

Although their support was keen on finding out what it was and they did their job admirably. Always liked Logitech support.

Not fixed in the 665. I just replace the batteries when I get that rebooting behaviour.
