There are plenty of Logitech fans who swear by their Harmony remotes, but if you're not rocking a complex home theater setup, then what's the point of investing in a decked out remote? Good question, and one Logitech will try to answer with its j ust-announced Harmony 300 designed for simpler home entertainment systems.
"Most universal remotes have a bad reputation for being hard to program and, as a result, you still use more than one remote to control the devices you own," said Ashish Arora, vice president and general manager of Logitech's digital home group. "With the Harmony 300, we wanted to deliver the Harmony remote promise of one remote to control your entertainment system to everyone. No more excuses -- it's time to get rid of the stack of remotes on your coffee table and simplify your home entertainment experience."
Logitech said it designed a refreshed Web-based setup exclusively for the Harmony 300, in which you'll connect the remote to your PC, go to www.myharmony.com, input your devices, and let Logitech do the rest. The peripheral maker also promises your Harmony 300 will never be out of date, boasting a growing online library that already supports more than 225,000 devices from over 5,000 brands.
The Harmony 300 will be available in early April for $50.
