    I would rather pay the extra 13.00 and buy at amazon, worst company for returns. rude, refuse faulty return postage costs, and took a month for them to look at, realize it was faulty and send me a new one.

    Isn't this pretty much the same as the Harmony 650, which is £48.99 at Amazon? Correct me if I'm wrong :p Logitech Harmony 650 - Amazon.co.uk

    Agreed, had exactly the same trouble with a faulty motherboard I bought off them.

    The 700 looks like it has a rechargable battery and can control 1 device more.

    Do you have to remove the batteries to charge this or is it a plug in charger?

    Worth it for the rechargeable battery - I have the Harmony One and it needs a good charge about once a month due to the fact it lights up like an xmas tree when you pick it up (handy!). Harmony remotes are awesome, ppl moan about the "complicated" software but that's just incompetence on their part tbh.

    Scan are pretty awful to deal with if your order goes wrong. I used to go to their sales counter at their warehouse in Bolton to buy components and it sucks the life out of you.

    Just noticed the above comments saying that the service from Scan isn't good.

    I'd like to differ here. I'm quite the competent system builder and i've built MANY computers and Scan is where I get my parts from, due to the excellent service and quality from them.

    On my first build many years ago, I had a faulty, DoA Asus Striker II motherboard. I sent it back on RMA and they were quick to decide it was indeed faulty and they promptly sent me a replacement. That same motherboard still working even today. The whole return process done online.

    Just saying.

    These look to be pre-order items, or have they sold out already?

    It's a plug in charger, with a detachable usb cable so you can connect it to a pc. I have one and can't fault it! (_;)

    Scan has really poor customer service. I wouldn't go near them again!
    graphicgiraffe
    I guess the ability to charge it is a extra which with one of these remotes you will need. But I don't mind replacing batteries every month because I'm too inpatient to wait for it to charge, I'd rather buy batteries! So I ordered the Harmony 650 in the end X) good deal though.

    I have this one, came with two eneloops to stick in, and a charge seems to last me at least a month, the battery has not run out on me yet

    Lovely feel to this remote as well but the sw is still a pain to configure to your exact requirements, and don't use the myharmont guff, use the older client

    Really? My Harmony One needs charging about once per week.
    This model looks better as it has the coloured buttons which are useful for Sky, the coloured buttons on mine are on the screen which I find not quite as good as the remote is quite long so everything seems to be a long way away from each other.

    Whilst your sample size of 1 might be compelling to you, representing 100% of your personal experience, it is statistically insignificant when compared to the pages and pages of complaints about their hilariously naff customer service.

    Read this thread, for example:
    http://forums.hexus.net/scan-care-hexus-after-sales-support/182835-maximum-5-rma-postage-refund-faulty-items.html - I especially like the way he expects the customer to put himself out getting quotes from obscure delivery companies, drive around to make a drop-off, assume the risk of under-insured parcel etc, rather than cost Scan an extra £2 or so on tracked and fully insured postage with Royal Mail.

    Or, indeed, simply search for Wesley Aldred's posts on various forums - his job title is 'Returns Manager', but so far as I can tell from his various posts, it should more correctly be 'doing everything I can to avoid having to process Returns Manager'.

    I spend tens of thousands per year on IT (not my own money, of course). I'd never consider using a company who seem so dead set on sucking away the time, energy, and will to live from every customer who has the temerity to experience a fault with their goods.

    EDIT: That said, Logitech themselves are, in my experience at least, absolutely faultless when it comes to returns, and I can't recommend them highly enough. So maybe no need to go through Scan at all, should a return arise...
