Well, I just drove a fair distance to pick up a 720 at a WalMart to compare to an 880 for my bedroom system. I was excited when I called and the associate said he had it in stock (it was the 5th store I had called). I asked him to confirm the price and model number, so he put me on hold and came back and said, "yes it's the Harmony 720, and it's 98.89$." I then broke multiple motor vehicle laws to get there, only to be smacked in the face with the reality of it being 159.99$!!
I stated that I had asked a salesperson double check the model and price and was met with the reply of, "uh.... they must have been looking at the price of the 520 on the hook....... uuuhhhh, sorry about that"
It took me 12 seconds to bring the remote to the little scanner thing and see that it was 160 bucks! I still bought it, but I'm seriously concidering returning it along with the 880 I bought off their website. I called customer service and explained that I felt I was a victim of "bait and switch" and that I was very unhappy. They said a supervisor would get back to me within 4-5 days.
Sorry, but I had to vent. I'll probably go with the 720 over the 880 for the since I like the fact that I can feel the different buttons without looking at the remote every time, and the fact that I believe it's more comfortable in the hand and better laid out overall. If WalMart doesn't do anything, I'll just return both and get the 720 from CostCo's website.
Oh yea, and I LOVE the "ignore" feature to deal with "re-tardo"(mattardo). It's great! And they need not reply, since I won't see it..... what a DONKEY!
