Logitech Harmony 1000 Remote

 

Log into Logitech's website these days and the first thing you see is a huge image of their swanky new product, the Logitech Harmony 1000.

Now the bad part: probably the one point that will render this whole review pointless. Yes, you guessed it, that factor is the exorbitant price tag of Rs 27,995. This is the price quoted by the company, so it should be cheaper elsewhere online.

The Harmony 1000 is one slickly crafted remote. It's got a big, beautiful, color touch-screen LCD that's roughly 3 by 2 inches. The case also has a nice brushed-metal top with several hard buttons, too. But although the device looks really nice, I...

Beautiful remote. Easy to program. Large database of supported devices. Comes with a charging station that displays the remote handsomely.

Does not come with a RF receiver. Buttons on the LCD are close together and cannot be moved.

The Logitech Harmony 1000 is easy on the eyes with its big, bright LCD touch screen and brushed-metal styling. You also get the same legendary ease of use and dead-simple setup Harmony remote users know and love. That's why it's a shame this device...

Editors' note (January 27, 2010): Some Harmony 900, 1000, and 1100 users may experience difficulty connecting their remotes to the Harmony software when using Mac OS 10.6 (Snow Leopard). More information on specific symptoms and the appropriate...

Harmony 1000 Universal Remote Control Reviewed

 

Bridging the gap between home automation and universal remote is the Harmony 1000. Its 3.5-inch touchscreen is just the start of its user friendliness. It's not quite as customizable as some others like Crestron, Control4 and AMX, but it sure does a...

While the Harmony 1000 is a great remote that can easily be the focal point of any consumer-level home theaters, it would benefit from a customizable touch screen and a few more hard buttons. The RF relay should come with the remote, as its own IR...

When Logitech released the Harmony 1000 in early 2007, they were targeting those people looking for an easy to use tablet-style remote control. Read on to see how programming the device matches up to its actual operation.

The Harmony 1000 also has some advantages over other tablet-style remotes on the market. This remote, in most cases, is much less expensive than the competition. The MSRP of the Harmony 1000 is $499, but I have seen it around the Internet for right...

Product Specifications

The Logitech Harmony 1000 features a brilliant 3.5" color touch screen that allows for one-touch activity-based control of even the most sophisticated A/V components. Say goodbye to the wasted time and unnecessary complexity of multiple remotes controlling multiple devices; Logitech's patented Smart State Technology makes it easy! Control your HDTV, adjust aspect ratios, or change sound modes - there are no complicated macros to program. Just press an on-screen activity icon and Harmony does the rest. The Harmony 1000's sleek shape and brushed aluminum surfaces will look right at home as the centerpiece of your digital living room. One remote is all you'll need to control even the most complex home entertainment systems. And when used together with a Harmony RF Wireless Extender (sold separately), you can further reduce clutter by placing your components out of sight. Since the remote can transmit both infrared and radio frequency commands, you can control equipment inside a cabinet or even in the next room.
