Excerpt: Most people have a pretty elaborate entertainment setup these days. And yes it can get pretty messy with a VCR, a DVD player, gaming console, HI FI, and of course a television. So the big question is how many remote controls do you have? Quite a few right? So in comes the universal remote, a controller that's clever enough to talk to all of your devices.
Summary: The swanky Logitech Harmony 1000i can be programmed by the average consumer, which saves the cost of hiring a home installer to do it.
Pros: Includes a rechargeable battery and a docking station, Less expensive than other high-end tablet-style remotes, Web-programmable, Compatible with Windows and Macintosh machines
Cons: No design flexibility (you can't design your own buttons or customise screen layouts, for example), Setting up systems with more than five or six components can get tricky, No easy way to use it in more than one room, Battery life is mediocre
