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?
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.
A programmable universal remote with a colour touchscreen
Good Gear Guide.au
25 December 2012
Excerpt: The Harmony Touch is a remote control from Logitech’s Harmony line-up. It’s more advanced than the Harmony 700 , but less so than the Harmony 900 . It’s $20 more expensive than the “only remote you may ever need” Harmony One , with which it shares an almost identical feature-set, but the Harmony Touch is much simpler and abandons most of its physical buttons for the versatility of a 2.4-inch colour touchscreen.
Pros: Comprehensive device support, Supports 15 devices simultaneously, Works well (after setup)
Cons: My Harmony software is finicky, Adjusting activities is complicated, Limited customisation of device controls

Logitech Harmony Touch : tout contrôler avec une télécommande
23 December 2012
Conclusion: Avec l'Harmony Touch, Logitech propose une télécommande universelle aboutie dont la promesse de remplacer toutes vos télécommandes se vérifie dans la pratique. Légère, bien finie, inspirant confiance par sa robustesse, l'Harmony Touch dispose d'un écran tactile de qualité assez réactif. On ne fera pas ici l'éloge des activités ou de la grande « programmabilité » des télécommandes Harmony tant ces atouts sont connus et reconnus par ailleurs dans la gamme Harmony.
Excerpt: Samlet set så er Logitech Harmony Touch uden tvivl en rigtig god universal fjernbetjening. Den er forholdsvis enkel at komme i gang med og specielt såfremt du allerede har en Harmony fjernbetjening, så er du hurtigt i gang med at bruge den. Til prisen kunne jeg dog godt have tænkt mig lidt mere.
