Summary: If you're looking for a cheap and easy universal remote--and you can live with its streamlined feature set--the Logitech Harmony 300 is a great choice.
Pros: Solid universal remote with good ergonomics; updated wizard-style setup software is optimized for tech novices and works on Windows or Mac PCs; ultra-affordable price tag.
Cons: The Harmony 300 only controls four devices and requires a computer with Internet access to configure. For just $30 more, the step-up model adds an LCD screen and uses the activity-based commands that Harmony is known for.
Conclusion: Programmed to our four devices, the Harmony 300i worked exactly as expected; performing all of our chosen actions without a hitch. Like all new remotes, it can take a while to remember where individual buttons are located, but the remote feels comfortable to use and its ability to replace up to four others certainly has appeal.
Conclusion: The Harmony 300i is Logitech’s newest entry level remote designed for the neophyte universal remote user. It is priced to be the most affordable model to date. For around $30 you can take control of up to four devices with one remote. Logitech has redesigned their setup software to make the programming experience a smooth and painless process.
Pros: Cheapest Harmony Ever, Designed for non tech inclined, Simple setup, Controls up to four devices
Cons: Only one activity button, Less feature rich than other Harmony remotes, Not for those with large AV setups
Summary: Logitechs nya budgetmodell 300i saknar display och styr bara fyra enheter, men delar samma kompetenta databas med testvinnaren Harmony One. Bra ergonomi även om handgreppet är marginellt sämre än Harmony One. De viktigaste knapparna finns precis under tummen, men vissa sifferknappar är svåra att nå. Ett bra val om du inte behöver styra fler än fyra enheter.
