Review: Logitech Harmony 890 Universal Remote

Wired
30 January 2007
  • Excerpt: DVRs, audio receivers, massive LCD displays, spent Mountain Dew containers. Your living room is a chaotic mess of electronic components and soft drink bottles. How to make sense of it? With one remote to rule them all!
  • Pros: LCD screen shows every function of the remotes it replaces. Converts IR signal to RF eliminating line-of-sight issues. Remote can be programmed via computer and with your existing remotes. Charging base keeps the battery fresh. Compatible with Z-wave technology for home appliance control.
