Logitech Harmony OneIf there was one universal remote to rule them all, this new Harmony model being introduced by Logitech at CES might just be it. The Logitech Harmony One is priced at around $250.

The Logitech Harmony One sports a 2.2-inch touchscreen on its slim body, letting you touch the appropriate activity button so the remote can do a variety of pre-programmed functions like turning on the television, home theater system and TiVo.

Logitech Harmony 300 remote

Posted in Logitech by Conner Flynn on March 31st, 2010

Logitech’s Harmony remotes have been a pretty popular accessory and the latest Harmony 300 has the best price of all at $49.99 in the USA and £29.99 in the UK.

The 300 features an effortless web-based setup using a USB on your computer and it boasts compatibility with over 225,000 devices from more than 5,000 brands. There will be some sacrifices at that price however, like no LCD screen and it can control a maximum of only four devices.

Posted in Logitech by Shane McGlaun on March 2nd, 2010

Logitech has been peddling its line of Harmony universal remote controls for a while now. The line has some of the best universal remotes around. I am particularly fond of the Harmony One and use it in my living room.

Logitech has added a pair of low cost universal remotes to the Harmony line including the 600 and 650. The remotes are very similar with the same basic shape and differ in the screens used. The 600 has a monochrome screen and the 650 has a color screen.

Posted in Logitech by Shane McGlaun on September 3rd, 2009

logitechharmony700-sbLogitech 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.

Logitech unveils Harmony 900 universal remote

Posted in Logitech by Shane McGlaun on August 11th, 2009

harmony_900-sbI have shed all my remote controls for my various components inside my entertainment center and have been using the Logitech Harmony One since it debuted. I will never go back to using the five or six separate remotes that the One replace on my coffee table.

As cool as the One is, the one catch was that the device wasn’t really intended to work components in other rooms. This is a big deal if you like to hide your gear away inside a closet or behind closed doors. Logitech has announced a new universal remote today called the Harmony 900. The 900 looks just like the One with the same design and button layout.

Posted in Review by Shane McGlaun on April 24th, 2009

harmony-1100-logitechI talked about the Logitech Harmony 1100 universal remote control back in February when we learned that the slick tablet style remote would sell for about $500. Today we are going to take a hands on look at the Harmony 1100 and see if the touchscreen beauty is worth all that cash. If you are in need of a universal remote for your complex home theater and those cheap, checkout line remotes can’t handle your gear, this may be just the product you need.

Logitech Harmony 1100 Universal Remote

Posted in Logitech by Conner Flynn on January 6th, 2009

Logitech Harmony 1100 Universal RemoteThe Harmony 1100 is showing itself off in Las Vegas, and the main selling point is the customizable, 3.5-inch QVGA full-color touchscreen. Buttons are so last century. You push them, sometimes they click, sometimes they don’t. Touching a panel is so much more sexy to up your volume and change channels.

It’s a good looking device. The unit features a rechargeable battery and RF capabilities, and a guided online setup makes programming simple. You want one don’t you? Sorry. It’s not shipping to the US and Europe until next month, when it will cost you $499.99.

Logitech Harmony 890Imagine a world in which you control all your home entertainment and advanced lighting systems using only one remote.

Gluvi – a condom for your remote

Posted in Accessories by Shane McGlaun on March 24th, 2010

Any parent will tell you that with kids around you are going to end up cleaning goo off the strangest places. I have had to clean peanut butter off the back of the refrigerator (don’t ask) and have spent more time than I care to talk about with a tooth pick and a paper towel trying to get chocolate out of the crevices of my Harmony One remote control.

A company called Gluvi has a new sanitary solution for remote controls that looks to me like a condom for your remote. The thing has an open end and slips over the remote to protect the keys from germs. I bet it works pretty well for keeping chocolate fingers away too.

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on September 1st, 2009

Blu-Link universal remote for PS3Sometimes you get sick of using all of those remotes. That’s what universal remotes are for. But in before today, if you wanted to use a universal remote with your PS3 you had to use an IR-to-Bluetooth adapter, like the Logitech Harmony for PS3. SMK has a different idea with Blu-Link.

This universal remote combines a Bluetooth PS3 controller with your typical infrared universal remote. It also features advanced learning (handy for figuring out button assignments from your other remotes) and has support for over 400 brands of standard and HDTV televisions and flatscreens, 150 VCRs, 200 Satellite Receiver models, 100 Cable TV Receiver brands, 50 DVR models and 200 home theater surround sound systems.

Logitech Harmony Adapter for PS3 Review

Posted in Review by Shane McGlaun on May 22nd, 2009

harmonyadapterps3Before I started using my Logitech Harmony One universal remote, I had five different remotes for my entertainment center. What was worse was that my kids and my wife were simply dumbfounded when it came to changing from the satellite box to the PS3 or any other component. You can only tell someone how to do a three-step process so many times before you get irritated.

Thankfully, after the Harmony One landed in my hands I was able to shed all those remotes and use only the One for the most part. I still needed my PS3 controller or the Blu-ray remote to control my PS3 for watching movies, which was a pain. Recently Logitech announced a new adapter called the Harmony Adapter for PS3 that answered my wishes for one remote to rule them all in my home theater. Today we are going to look at the Harmony Adapter for PS3, read on for all the details.

Logitech Harmony PS3 adapter launches this month

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on May 11th, 2009

Logitech Harmony PS3 adapter launches this monthWe told you back in March that Logitech is preparing the Harmony Adapter for the PS3, but at the time we didn’t have much info. Best Buy actually had it listed but was removed and is now cached. Anyway, it looks like the Harmony Adapter to be available in several weeks on May 31st in the USA.

The price isn’t bad for the luxury of not using the PS3 game controller as a remote. How many of you have been doing just that forever now?

Logitech Harmony adapter for PlayStation 3

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on March 19th, 2009

Logitech Harmony adapter for PlayStation 3Here’s some awesome news for PS3 owners. It’s been a long long wait, and I mean long, but this device has now hit the FCC. The details are few, but you should be excited. Until now Playstation owners with IR-based universal remotes have had to use bulky IR-to-Bluetooth converters so that the pair can communicate.

That will all change when the E-R0001 hits the market. We’ll have to wait to get the answers to all of your questions, like when? and How much?
