Logitech unveils Harmony universal remote duet

One control to rule them all

High performance access to file storage

Logitech has introduced two more models to its Harmony line of all-in-one remote controls.

The Harmony 600 has a monochrome screen - the Harmony 650 is the colour option. The 600's display presents the commands at your disposal, while the 650's screen shows icons for your favourite TV stations.

Logitech's Harmony 600: black and white

Both provide one-click actions: buttons trigger multiple signals allowing you to, say, turn the TV on, switch it to the right Scart connector and tell the DVD player to start showing a film.

Both remotes can take the place of five device-specific remotes from more than 250,000 home-entertainment devices made by more than 5000 brands, Logitech claimed.

Logitech didn't provide UK pricing, but it said the Harmony 600 and 650 will go on sale here later this month. As a guide, US prices are $80 (£54) and $100 (£67), respectively. ®
