Logitech Harmony Remotes on Sale!

Logitech Harmony Remotes on Sale!

This week, being it is “Black Friday Week” on all the online retailers, in their regular style have all dropped their prices for the week to compete with big name retail outlets massive Friday sales.  This year, Amazon is dropping their prices on Logitech’s most coveted Harmony remotes.  If you are a new reader of the site, and haven’t noticed already, I am a HUGE fan of the Harmony remote, and will be picking up a few this week myself.  The remotes are top quality, and Logitech is great support if anything ever breaks.  My first remote had battery acid leak from a faulty Duracel battery and Logitech replaced it gratis!  How awesome is that, we are talking at $100 remote, replaced for free because of something that wasn’t even their fault.  That’s what I call customer service!  Also, all these devices are platform agnostic so they can be setup and can control either Windows or Mac platform (assuming you have the correct receiver on your HTPC).  Now on to the price drops, let’s check a few out and a brief summary of their options and offerings.

 

Logitech Harmony One

Logitech Harmony One

Considered by some the king of remotes, this bad boy packs a full color LCD touch screen display.  The device is fully rechargeable (THANK THE LORD) via a included docking station.  It can control 15 devices simultaneously, with a selection from over 225,000 devices with a database that is always growing, backed by the support of Logitech.  Did I mention how awesome the support of Logitech is?  I know I did, but one more time, they are awesome. Available for $139 (normally $199) via Amazon here.

 

 Logitech Harmony 650

Logitech Harmony 650Next up, we’ve got the Harmony 650.  Not to be mistaken as inferior to the One by any means, or any other of the Harmony’s… This guy is a “budget” choice that still packs a hell of a punch.  The device is well designed and feels really well while holding.  It also has a huge database of 225,000 devices it can control, with a max of 5 devices simultaneously.  It does however lack the rechargeable feature and the touchscreen.  It does, as you can see, have a color LCD screen which is a cool feature in itself.  At $60.99, this remote is a steal.  If you have a smaller HTPC deployment, with under 5 devices, this may be your best choice for the $$.  Available via Amazon here.

 Logitech Harmony 900 

Harmony 900

Now, if the Logitech Harmony One is king, this is the Jesus of Harmony remotes.  This bad boy runs in at $249 (on sale from $349).  Now that may seem like a lot, but consider what you are getting.  This BEAST of a remote can control 15 simultaneous devices, INCLUDING RF (radio frequency) devices.  This allows you to control devices that are tucked into cabinets, or simply only communicate via RF.  Radio frequency penetrates thin walls and allows for communication with devices that aren’t in direct sight of the remote.  If you have the dreaded “failure to turn on” errors where your TV doesn’t hit the right input because your dog walked in sight of the IR signal and caused it to not hit the AV receiver to properly change the input.  This bad boy will have none of that!  That’s right my friends, this thing is a beast.  It has a full touchscreen color LCD display.  I currently don’t have this beast, but with the $100 price drop, I may just have to grab one!  Available here for $249.

 

There are a few other Harmony remotes that are also top quality, and I would recommend them all.  Whatever remote you decide to choose, is up to your personal preference.  Check out the Amazon prices, because they are pretty incredible this week.  Not that they aren’t great year long, but they are extremely awesome right now with discounts up to $100.  Check em out!
