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.

Pros: Recognizes over 145, 000 devices; semi-customizable interface; color screen
Cons: Poor battery life; RF use requires expensive add-ons; setup can be tedious
