Logitech's Harmony 700 Replaces Up To Six Remotes

Logitech's Harmony remote lineup has been pleasing affluent A/V enthusiasts for ages now, but the company's universal devices have hardly ever suited the low-end crowd. All that changes today, or at least it does if you consider $150 to be "low-end." The Harmony 700 offers up a lot of the same controlling features found on some of the company's higher-end units, but at a price that's much less than the stickers found on other units.

Designed to control up to six components at a time, the remote packs a color display, rechargeable AA batteries and one-click control of many of your favorite activities. In short, this remote can be programmed to turn on your TV, DVD player, audio system and even turn down your music--with one single button press. You simply program your remote to handle those tasks when you mash the "Watch a DVD" command, and just like that, everything clicks.

Users can also check our the favorite channels on the color display, and if you're concerned about the setup process, don't be. Owners can hook this up to their PC or Mac, and once it's linked, they can tap into Logitech's online database of over 250,000 devices in order to program practically any A/V component ever made. As we stated, this one will be available in the US and Europe later this month for $149.99.
