Logitech and the entire Harmony line has finally come to along to solve the problem of managing multiple remote controls and devices. Count ‘em up – flat screen TV, surround sound speakers, DVD player, apple TV, cable TV and video game consoles fill my living room with remote controls! The clutter is Killing Me and is an eye sore. Sure, there are plenty of universal remotes that can manage your DVD player and TV, but the Logitech Harmony One replaces up to 15 remotes and does it with grace (talk about multi-tasking!)
I’ve been using the Harmony One (retail $249.) for the past month and can’t sing its praises enough. What makes it nicer than other universal remotes? It is well designed – fits in the palm of my hand and is not awkwardly shaped. It feels balanced, like it can handle my channel changing obsessed family. The Harmony One has a touch screen, so I can see my devices – my son’s Xbox, the wii and surround sound. Best of all, I hit one-two buttons and it turns on my tv, switches inputs and finds the device. It is also rechargeable, so no more looking for batteries. Where has this been my whole life?
Don’t just take my word for it, you must read Desiree’s thoughts on the Harmony One.
