Universal remote still gets color LCD
Logitech has introduced its latest universal remote, the Harmony 700, on Thursday as one of its less expensive models. Despite trimming the design, it still has a color screen that can be programmed to display the icons of a viewer's favorite channels; it mainly relies on rechargeable AA batteries to trim its price.
As with all Logitech remotes, setting them up is simple, and requires users only to connect the remote the their computers through USB to sync device lists. The remote can simultaneously start up multiple devices at once based on particular tasks, such as turning on the TV, switching it to the correct input, as well as powering up a DVD player and any surround sound systems.
The Logitech Harmony 700 remote will ship later this month and is priced low at $150.
