Logitech Harmony Touch

The last iteration of the Universal Remote from Logitech was the Harmony One and it was an excellent device but it had a few kinks. Logitech has finally returned to the universal remote game — with a new flagship in tow. The Logitech Harmony Touch melds a traditional remote form factor with a smartphone-like interface that fills its centrally-located 2.4-inch touchscreen. Instead of typing in numbers or grazing through pages of guide listings, the Harmony Touch lets you place tappable channel icons right on the screen, so your favorite channels are never more than a swipe and tap away.

The best thing about Logitech’s Harmony line is that you program it online very simply and 99% of the time they recognize most of your hardware, and it my case it helps reduce the number of remotes on the table from 8 to 3. With this new device it seems to be a bit smaller with a lot of buttons integrated into the touch screen. As usual you have your activities which are preprogrammed command to get devices in the right settings or control devices themselves. I’m probably going to purchase one to try it out and see how it works out with my devices overall.

For $250 its a bit on the higher side but I am a fan of Logitech products so I’m willing to try it out. Initial reviews have a few key points, but I really want to try it out to see what its capable of.

Logitech K310 Washable Keyboard

I am huge fan of Logitech products, they always make the most useful computer accessories, and it seems this is no different. I’m surprised nobody thought of a washable keyboard before, and this one isn’t ugly. For desktops I prefer a full keyboard like this, and I usually prefer the highend line of Logitech keyboards, their mid to low end have a crappy feel on the board and this new one looks worth a try. I like the white keys on black background, and for $30 its reasonably priced.

Logitech Harmony Link

I have always wanted to control my media devices from my Android device or my iPad, and usually for my universal remote needs I use the Logitech Harmony One. This time around they have come up with the perfect little device and you don’t have to attach anything to your Android or Apple device to make it work, The Logitech Harmony Link ($100) is the solution. This sleek system consists of a small black transmitter that connects to your home network via Wi-Fi, letting you control your entire system from your Android or iOS device without the need for any dongles or other attachments. The hardware can be hidden in the cabinet and you can still control it, in my case I don’t have any TV guides to use but I do have all my different Activities that I have. If you have use any Logitech device before then this is very familiar to setup. There seems to be some negative reviews regarding its limitations but still its pretty good to get some activities going, I might get it to try it out.
