    Logitech Harmony 1000

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    When Logitech released the Harmony 1000 in early 2007, they were targeting those people looking for an easy to use tablet-style remote control. Read on to see how programming the device matches up to its actual operation.

    This remote is easy to use once you are comfortable with the interface.  Programming the device is not quite as easy as actually operating the remote.  Many of the tablet-style remote controls require a professional to come to your house and program the remote for you, but the Harmony 1000 is designed to be programmed by the user. In situations where only about five or less devices are to be programmed, this process is relatively painless. When a lot of devices need to be programmed, the set-up can be rather difficult and time consuming. I'll discuss the programming method in more depth later.

    The Harmony 1000 has some definite advantages over standard remote controls and other tablet-style remotes as well. Of course, one of the main advantages of the Harmony 1000 is that it will replace the remote controls of up to 15 components. The average household uses four or five remote controls for TV, DVD player, receiver, DVR/TiVo, etc. The Harmony 1000 is capable of replacing all of these remotes, which will reduce clutter and eventually make operating these components easier. 

    The Harmony 1000 also has some advantages over other tablet-style remotes on the market. This remote, in most cases, is much less expensive than the competition. The MSRP of the Harmony 1000 is $499, but I have seen it around the Internet for right around $300. Much of the competition costs well over $500.  Also, when you look beyond the initial price tag, you have to figure in programming costs. Some higher-end remotes need to be programmed by a professional which can cost close to $200 for a house call. The Harmony 1000 is programmed by the user through the Logitech website, which saves that $200 programming cost.
