Logitech's Harmony 1100 now shipping to tidy living rooms everywhereMurata Tactile Controller TV remote hands-on (video)Comcast

Easy to setup via MyHarmony.com ; Solid hardware

Inflexible programming ; Limited touchscreen features ; Only supports IR control ; Limited one-way control

Aside from an easy setup through MyHarmony.com, nothing sets this IR-to-WiFi bridge apart from the competition.

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.

The Logitech Harmony 300 universal remote is effortlessly terrific in its features list, help and support options and overall body and button design. Although this Harmony remote may be lacking a touch or color screen, the simple design that includes...

This universal remote has excellent help and support options

An LCD color screen is lacking from this universal remote

Although a color screen is missing, we are still impressed with this universal remote.

Logitech Harmony 300

 

Cheap and cheerful, the Harmony 300 does what it says on the box, but not much more.

Very inexpensive ; Fairly idiot-proof ; Solid construction

Maximum of four devices ; Some clearance Harmony remotes may be better value

Amongst the hordes of very cheap screen-free remotes on the marketplace, however, the Harmony 300 has some appeal. It's easier to set up than most of them at around the same price point. If you're after a simple remote and have very simple needs (and...

Logitech Harmony 300 universal remote

 

Back in April Adam Turner reviewed the Logitech Harmony 900 universal remote control, which costs a cool $899.95. In the interests of balance, we decided to also have a look at the cheapest model in the range – the $59.95 Harmony 300.

Price; easy setup

No screen; limited functionality

This review originally appeared in the August issue of Australian Macworld magazine.

Consumer review by:

"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.

Consumer review by:

"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!
