Logitech Takes Harmony to the Masses with a Budget Version
I think this is a great idea, although if your budget is really tight you can easily find some higher end Harmony models for cheap on eBay often. But still, this is good to get the Harmony brand into more hands.
Like others in Logtech’s lineup, the new Harmony 300 can be programmed to control multiple devices, via a USB connection and their cloud-based device database of a bazillion components (some recorded better than others). However, unlike prior Harmonys, the 300 seems more ‘universal remote’ than macro-based event control… Given the missing LCD and 4 component limitation. Which is probably OK as they’re clearly shooting for the mass market with a $50 price point. (And battery life should be very good.)
