Edmund's problem may have been a one-off? I've used MX-500, MX-700, MX-800 and MX-850s of various ages and don't recall the MX-850 (which has the same keypad style as the MX-650) differing in lifespan, although they all do eventually tend to have issues around often-used keys. So don't get any "well used" ones for sure.

Sadly the "prosumer" remote market is pretty much limited to Harmony and some URC models, especially if your budget is limited.

Otherwise, I've found MX-900s to be decent despite its odd-looking keypad style, and they're older now, but you would need to get from someplace that would also give you software.
