Logitech has been offering its line of universal Harmony remotes for a long time now and most all of them that I have used have been great. The only downside to the Harmony line is that the remotes tend to be expensive.
Logitech has announced a new Harmony 700 remote that is also one of the lower cost remotes in the line at $149.99. Despite being cheaper than the other remotes in the Harmony line, the 700 still has many of the same features. The device has a color screen that shows channel icons.
The most important feature is the activities control that lets you set up one button to change the inputs for different things like watching movies or playing games. The Harmony 700 can replace up to six remotes. The 700 uses rechargeable AA batteries and has an adapter that plugs in for recharging. Shipping is set for September and the remote programs with the Harmony software like all the other remotes.
