article imageLogitech Harmony 1000, a swanky remote with a sexy name

By Aaron Robson     Feb 18, 2007 in Technology
Logitech has been gradually going more upscale with its PC-programmable Harmony remotes, so it's no great surprise that it's finally entered high-end territory with a touch screen, tablet-style model, the Harmony 1000.
Unlike other high-end -- and more expensive -- models from the likes of Crestron, Philips, and Universal Remote Control, this swanky Harmony doesn't require hiring a professional home installer to program or update it.
In other words, while $500 certainly isn't cheap for a remote, it's still about half the price of what you'd pay for a competing touch screen model once you combine the cost of the hardware with the cost of the programmer.
There are a lot of features on the remote aswell, but it would take an extreme amount of time to list them all off with detail, and I wouldn't dare copy and paste everything due to the fear of being flagged for it. So I'll just go over some of the stuff, but not into so much detail. If you would rather the full info, go visit the full story link.
So basically this is like a touch screen phone (following the new trend now a days). It's got a 3.5 inch screen diagonally, roughly around 4 by 4 inches. Almost everything is touch screen, channel up, channel down, the volume, everything you would normally see on a tv remote. You can customize the way you want your screen, different themes, backgrounds, customize the buttons and everything. So in a nut shell, it is a television remote that has your own personal touch to it and a $500 price tag.
I can't see myself buying this anytime soon. It seems like there isn't such a big demand for expensive touch screen tv remotes lately. I wonder if you can play games on it?
