Logitech Harmony 300 omits screen for price

Logitech started off Wednesday by providing its least expensive universal remote to date. The Harmony 300 scraps the display entirely and instead uses a set of pre-programmed buttons to handle fully automated tasks like playing a DVD. All of the tasks are set up using a Mac or Windows PC through a web browser interface that taps into Logitech's device database.

The remote should work with at least 225,000 devices that support IR signals and should recognize more with online updates. At $50, the 300 is half as expensive as the Harmony 650. Customers will have a relatively short wait as the new remote will ship in April.

    Needs more devices

    I'd buy it if it could control 6 devices. I want to control an AppleTV, Receiver, DVD Player, TV, Cable Box, and another device (CD Player, iPod on Dock, etc.)
