Logitech Harmony 1000 Advanced Universal Remote Review

I4U News
19 June 2008
  • Summary: Verdict The Logitech Harmony 1000 is a great universal remote. Even while it is one of the cheapest touchscreen remotes, it will still leave some with sticker shock over its price. However, if your home theater is complex and you want a slick and easy to use way to lose extra remotes and make using your home theater easier, the Logitech Harmony 1000 is a fantastic device that makes common home theater tasks much easier to accomplish.
  • Pros: Easy to program, Can operate 15 different devices, Attractive design
  • Cons: Touchscreen lacks tactile feel, some commands for complex devices are buried deep in multi-page menus

  • Conclusion: The Logitech Harmony 1000 is easy on the eyes with its big, bright LCD touch screen and brushed-metal styling. You also get the same legendary ease of use and dead-simple setup Harmony remote users know and love. That's why it's a shame this device relies mainly on software buttons that are tough to press and aren't very configurable.
  • Pros: Beautiful remote. Easy to program. Large database of supported devices. Comes with a charging station that displays the remote handsomely.
  • Cons: Does not come with a RF receiver. Buttons on the LCD are close together and cannot be moved.

  • Summary: Though it lacks real multiroom capabilities and may not offer quite the flexibility of competing high-end tablet-style remotes, the swanky Logitech Harmony 1000 can be programmed by the average consumer, which saves the cost of hiring a home installer to program it.
  • Pros: Logitech's first tablet-style universal learning remote incorporates both IR (infrared) and RF (radio frequency) wireless operation and includes a rechargeable battery and a docking station. Compared with other high-end tablet-style remotes, it's less expensive, and like other Harmony remotes, the 1000 is Web-programmable and compatible with Windows and Macintosh machines.
  • Cons: For those on tighter budgets, the Harmony 1000 is going to appear pricey, especially when you consider that no RF module is included. In addition, this model lacks some of the design flexibility (you can't design your own buttons or customize screen layouts, for example) that many high-end remotes offer, and setting up systems with more than five or six components can get pretty tricky. There's no easy way to use the 1000 in more than one room. And finally, because of...

  • Summary: Throughout this review I’ve pointed out issues and areas of potential improvement for the Harmony, but it should be understood that these come from someone familiar and comfortable with the programming of advanced universal remote controls using tools that, while less restrictive and typically quicker to use, generally offer no guidance on how to do something or what to do next.

  • Excerpt: Introduction The first TV remote was made by Zenith in 1950. Called “Lazy Bones,” it allowed you to change the channels and to turn the TV on and off. It came with a 20-foot wire connecting it to the set. The first wireless remote also came from Zenith in 1955, using a directional flashlight to activate its then-incredible four control functions; the “flashlight” system meant stray sunlight activated functions at any given time.

  • Excerpt: Most universal remote controls are based on the simple notion of replacing your existing remotes with one handset, and advanced users can set up macros - sequences of commands for several devices.

  • Summary: Si vous êtes déjà possesseur d'une Harmony, la version 1000 ne vous apportera qu'un écran plus grand et tactile d'où une note peut être un peu sévère. Sinon, cette télécommande peut remplacer efficacement toutes celles d'une installation pour peu que l'on veuille bien y mettre le prix et prennes le temps de la configurer. Il est vraiment dommage de ne pas pouvoir personnaliser l'apparence des boutons ou appliquer des thèmes.
  • Pros: Design, Performance, Mode opératoire, Création de nouvelles touches, Ecran tactile 9 cm
  • Cons: Mode d'apprentissage qui peut causer quelques difficultés, Absence de logos des chaines de TV, Personnalisation graphique limitée, Incompatible X10
