Logitech Harmony 300

 

Logitech's Harmony line of universal remote controls have become synonymous with simple computer-based programming; and despite its low $49.99 (direct) price, the entry-level Harmony 300 is no exception. In order to keep the price low, Logitech had to...

Dead-simple PC-driven setup. Comfortable design. Least expensive Harmony remote in Logitech's lineup

Lacks programmable macros. No display for adding extra on-screen buttons

The entry-level Logitech Harmony 300 offers pain-free universal-remote setup, but lacks the LCD and macros you'll find on more-expensive Harmony remotes.

Editors' note: Confused about how this model stacks up to other Harmony remotes? See CNET's Which Logitech universal remote is right for you? for updated comparisons and recommendations.

Solid universal remote with good ergonomics; updated wizard-style setup software is optimized for tech novices and works on Windows or Mac PCs; ultra-affordable price tag.

The Harmony 300 only controls four devices and requires a computer with Internet access to configure. For just $30 more, the step-up model adds an LCD screen and uses the activity-based commands that Harmony is known for.

If you're looking for a cheap and easy universal remote--and you can live with its streamlined feature set--the Logitech Harmony 300 is a great choice.

"Never worry about being able to find a device's code!"

 

Cheap

Took a bit of time to learn how to program (only because I don't really feel like watching the tutorial video-- I wanted to watch TV)

Consumer review by:

"Auto set-up not functional with Win 7. No US support."

 

Might be usable if you are on obsolete Windows OS or Mac.

You will return to point of sale within 30 days

Auto-setup does not work with Win7 (April 2012)

Consumer review by:

"Log-in and getting around Logitech site is maddening."

 

Would not recommend. Too much hassle.

Once programmed, the remote works pretty well, there is a noticeable lag when using one of the four programmed buttons.

Buttons could be better grouped. The signin process is irritating. I have given up on trying to change features on this remote. The remote is not seen on the computer for programming and the site gives very vague solutions to solve the problem.

"The My Devices buttons do not select your Devices!"

 

Four remotes might be more convenient.

There is one button to select your devices - it's called "TV Input."

The big, flashing My Devices buttons do not select your Devices!

Consumer review by:

as stated above, it does what it says it does

 

This is a great remote to eliminate extra remotes, and allow some additional customization without breaking the bank. However, the harmony 650 offers easier -more reliable operation, better interface, and easier customization, with a greater range of...

easy to program, lots of device support, easy to customize, love the ir learning feature

no backlight, not the most straight forward programming interface

The My Devices buttons do not select your Devices!

 

Four remotes might be more convenient. Updated on Aug 2, 2011

There is one button to select your devices - it's called "TV Input ; It is a small black button (among over 50 buttons) and it must be used to select your devices. Then the "My Devices" button associated with the device needs to be pressed to allow the
