Logitech Harmony Touch Review

 

Your TV is probably augmented by an ever-growing collection of boxes that plug into it — and you have a remote for every one. Remembering what setting everything has to be on can be frustrating. Enter Harmony Touch. Tell it which devices you have, and...

Easy to use. Feels great in the hand

Initial setup is a pain. Expensive

It really does make a huge difference, and it’s such a lovely object that even if you have an older Harmony remote you might be tempted to upgrade — you can even migrate your settings. Once your family uses one, the idea of futzing with half a dozen...

Logitech proudly proclaims on its Web site that the Harmony Touch is "not a remote." Well, it looks like a remote, feels like a remote, and acts like a remote, so despite its claims, we have to say that it is conclusively a remote. Aside from this...

Extremely simple to set up and use. Powerful. Sleek design

Expensive

While it's pricey, the Logitech Harmony Touch is one of the easiest-to-use, most powerful universal remotes we've tested.

The Logitech Harmony Touch has a stylish and comfortable design and features both a customizable touch-screen interface and gesture support.

Sleek comfortable design; Bright touch screen; Customizable channel icons; Included charging cradle

Setup requires plugging into computer; Limited number of gestures; No social network integration

Click to EnlargeThe Logitech Harmony Touch is a nice improvement over the company's previous universal remote control. At $249, it's $50 more than the remote it's replacing, the Harmony One. However, now that other remotes--including those from...

A touch-screen remote at first glance seems like an obvious evolution over the button-festooned scepters of yore, but the Logitech Harmony Touch is a significantly worse remote than many traditional universal clickers, like the superb and much less...

Sleek universal remote with beautiful-looking design; large color touch screen with custom virtual buttons and numeric keypad; recognizes limited gestures; Web-programmable via Windows or Mac PCs, but can edit commands without having to connect a...

Much more expensive than the superior Harmony 650; poorly placed "transport" buttons; lacks dedicated forward and reverse skip keys; limited customization options for the touch screen; nonremovable battery; no RF compatibility.

The Harmony Touch can't justify the high price of its touch screen compared with traditional multibutton universal remotes.

Logitech's newest remote controls sits comfortably in the middle of its product line-up. The Harmony Touch is more than capable enough for most home theatre setups, but setting it up is more complicated than it needs to be.

Comprehensive device support Supports 15 devices simultaneously Works well (after setup)

My Harmony software is finicky Adjusting activities is complicated Limited customisation of device controls

The physical buttons cover most basic playback and navigation, although the placement of play/pause/stop and forward/back skip buttons above the touchscreen is an odd choice. If you're generally sitting down to play a movie and watch it the whole way...

"Don't buy a Harmony Touch"

 

This doesn't replace my other remotes, as I can't rely on the "touch" working properly, so what's the point of it ?

I can't think of any "pros" right now, probably because my judgement is clouded by all the "cons".

Only 250 characters ?

"Awful Set Up Experience but Stellar afterwards"

 

Set Up software asked to ID cable box brand&model. 1.5 hours of frustration later I found a forum post saying to change brand to Xfinity. This could have been anticipated. Many Cable Co's rebrand their boxes. Furious...just furious. Almost smashed it

Quality product. Great Screen. Good Ergonomics.Ability to have favorites and ignore channels you never watch is awesome.

Horrible planning for set up software. Hate having to connect to PC to reprogram, wifi or bluetooth anyone?
