Logitech Harmony 900 Universal Remote Control Review

Aug 27 2009

I've been drooling over this 900 remote from Logitech since it was announced just a few weeks ago. This is basically the Harmony One with its gorgeous touch screen along with some RF and other capabilities. Looks like this reviewer loves it as well, no surprise as this is up there on the price spectrum, at $400 MSRP.

i4UI have reviewed several Logitech Harmony remotes over the years and I have liked some of them better than others. I found that the Harmony One was the best universal remote I have ever tested. The Logitech Harmony 900 looks very much like the One with a very similar design with a few additions. Logitech added a line of colored buttons underneath the hard buttons for menu and the guide. These buttons are red, green, yellow, and blue. They allow you to not only access the color coded controls of your Blu-ray player, but they allow me to have real buttons for the functions of my DirecTV DVR rather than hitting virtual keys like I do on my Harmony One. The screen of the Logitech Harmony 900 is touch sensitive and appears to be a bit sharper than the screen on my One.
