Harmony 1100 remote review: a bigger screen isn’t always better

First review I’ve come across on the Logitech Harmony 1100 touchscreen remote–and the boys at Engadget aren’t pulling any punches. With an MSRP of $500, I would expect no less.


The screen itself is bright and colorful, if a bit grainy, but its
position means you’re stuck using a second hand to use most functions.
Whether you’re selecting an activity to perform, punching in a
television channel, or even fast-forwarding through a commercial,
you’ll need extra fingers and eyes on that panel. After a few days’
usage you’ll start to be able to do some functions without a glance,
but even then you’ll spend far more time staring at it than you’d like
— despite its nice looks.
