Conclusion: It really does make a huge difference, and it’s such a lovely object that even if you have an older Harmony remote you might be tempted to upgrade — you can even migrate your settings. Once your family uses one, the idea of futzing with half a dozen remotes gives you cold sweats.
Conclusion: Even though Logitech has technically replaced the Harmony One with the new Harmony Touch, you can still find both models for sale on sites like Amazon.com. As I write this, the older Harmony One is about $50 cheaper. So which one is the better choice? It primarily comes down to ergonomic preference. Do you prefer a larger, longer remote with more physical buttons or a smaller remote with more touchscreen options?
Excerpt: Apple TV users know well that any iOS device can serve as a Wi-Fi remote control thanks to Apple’s free app Remote, but if you want to control the television, A/V receiver, and/or speakers connected to the Apple TV, an accessory of some sort will be necessary.

Conclusion: Logitech has produced universal remotes ranging from very cheap to quite expensive, and the latest Harmony Touch is somewhere in-between.

Excerpt: For some time now Logitech has been one of the major players when it comes to universal remotes. With the new Harmony Touch the company is taking advantage even more of touch functionality. Hardware.Info tested it to find out how good it is.
Excerpt: Logitech has comfortably dominated the consumer universal remote market for years, thanks to their intuitive, powerful software and sleek, ergonomic hardware. But like any race that’s already won, pushing limits took a back seat to simply holding a lead. Case in point, the company’s existing Harmony 900 and Harmony One flagships were released over three years ago — which might as well have been when Rome burned, in tech time.
Summary: The Logitech Harmony Touch is a nice improvement over the company's previous universal remote control. At $249, it's $50 more than the remote it's replacing, the Harmony One. However, now that other remotes--including those from Logitech--can learn not only your viewing habits, but help you share your viewing experience with friends, we can't help but feel that the Harmony Touch seems limited. But what it does, it performs very well.
Excerpt: Logitech's Harmony range of universal remote controls are decent attempts at uncluttering our living rooms by providing us with a single remote for all our devices, and the Logitech Harmony Touch is the latest model.
