Logitech Harmony 1000


Logitech's Harmony 1000 universal remote has tricky buttons, but it sure is a looker.

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.

Logitech's first tablet-style universal learning remote incorporates both IR (infrared) and RF (radio frequency) wireless operation and includes a rechargeable battery and a docking station. Compared with other high-end tablet-style remotes, it's less...

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...

Logitech Harmony 1000


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...

As much as you may love your new flat screen TV and DVR, it's the controller that really brings it all together, and it's the controller that you actually spend the most time with. While the universal remote that came with your surround sound receiver...

Aside from those issues, using the 1000 was a pleasure. I never worried about miss-hitting a small button (a problem for me with the model 890), because the LCD screen allows for large, easy to reach buttons. All the most-commonly used buttons would...

Logitech Harmony 1000 review


This will simplify the most complex of home entertainment systems

Activity-based control ; Simple setup process ; Backlit touch-screen

May not be as good as all your existing remotes

If you want an easy to use, one-remote solution for controlling all your home entertainment gadgets, this is definitely one to consider.

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.
