Excerpt: I don’t know what they put in the water cooler at Logitech, but I want to start drinking it. The Harmony One is another in its long list of affordable universal remote controls. It looks great, is easy to program, and is sweetly simple to use. The Harmony One is as narrow as most single-device remotes, but it’s thinner and surprisingly light. It’s even easier to hold and use.

Summary: In the world of universal remote controls, you can spend more than the Logitech Harmony One costs, but few universal remotes will offer you more convince than you can get here. The Logitech Harmony One is an awesome product and something that even modest home theaters will be lost without.
Smooth Operator: Remote Controls With Brains and Beauty
20 October 2008
Excerpt: Logitech’s 2.2-inch color touchscreen remote definitely had the looks of the bunch. Testing proved it had the brains, too. Instead of forcing you to toggle between various devices, the Harmony One is activity-based — select “watch a video” and it powers on all the required electronics at once and sets them to the proper inputs.
Pros: Responsive touchscreen is a smooth operator. Software-based setup easier to handle than a doorknob.
Cons: Some automated functions are kooky and need to be manually reprogrammed. No RF means you have to stand right in front of your gear.
