Logitech unveils Harmony 900 universal remote

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.

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

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 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?

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.
