Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard

 

It might not have a conventional remote, but between a wireless keyboard with touchpad and smartphone/tablet app controls, the Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard can let you do almost anything with your home theater system from the couch.

Very flexible smartphone and tablet control of your home theater devices. Keyboard is useful for text input. Two USB receivers can work with both a PC and an entertainment device

Requires a smartphone or tablet to configure. Keyboard touchpad isn't used with most entertainment devices

Logitech has made some big strides with its Harmony universal remotes in the last few years. They've evolved beyond simple remote controls into infrared-blasting hubs you can control with your smartphone or tablet. They haven't quite fixed the most...

Logitech Harmony Link

 

The Logitech Harmony Link turns your iPad or smartphone into a touch-screen remote control, but it lacks some options and features that would push it past a conventional programmable remote.

Simple to set up. Works with iPad, iPhone, and Android phones. iPad app includes a channel guide.

Remote control layout can’t be customized. Channel guide lacks a grid view, long-term programming search, or links to information about shows.

Logitech Harmony Link review

 

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

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.

Logitech Harmony 300 review

 

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.

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
