I really can't decide between the 720 and the 880, I prefer the 720's styling over the 880s but it would be nice to have 8 soft keys (880) rather than 6 (720). The reviews seem pretty comparable for both models. I've used a friend's 880 and haven't been blown away by it, I've never had a chance to play with a 720.
Are there any differences in the IR strength? I cannot find any technical information on this. My friend complains about the IR strength on his 880.
Do all of the keys on the 720 light up? I've heard that the 880's hard keys do not light up.
I would either purchase the 720 from Costco at $180 or the 880 from Amazon at $155 - is it really worth paying $25 more for a "lower" model Harmony remote? I'm leaning towards the 720, but am questioning whether it's worth it to pay more for less...
Thanks for any input,
