Logitech Harmony 600

The Good Powerful universal remote with great ergonomics; simple text-based LCD screen surrounded by five contextual buttons; Web programmable via Windows or Mac PCs; excellent button layout and overall design; supports custom sequences/macros; sub-$80 price tag.

The Bad Only controls five devices; requires Internet-connected PC to program; an additional $20 gets you the step-up model with a color screen and graphical icons.

The Bottom Line If you can't spend $100 or more on a universal remote, the Logitech Harmony 600 is a great choice.

Logitech Harmony 600

Editors' note: The Logitech Harmony 600 has been discontinued, and is See CNET's Which Logitech universal remote is right for you? for updated comparisons and recommendations.

Logitech's line of Harmony universal remotes includes more models at more affordable price points than ever before. For 2010, the lineup includes the $50 Harmony 300 and the $100 Harmony 650. Directly between those two models is the $80 Harmony 600, reviewed here.

At first glance, the Harmony 600 is a near duplicate of its slightly more expensive big brother. The overall design and button layout is effectively identical to that of the Harmony 650 (and, indeed, the $150 Harmony 700). But the Harmony 600 is silver instead of gray, and it offers a simple text-based LCD screen instead of the 650's more colorful version. Both the 600 and the 650 can control a total of five devices, and--like all Harmony remotes--these models are programmable via a Mac or Windows PC, and use activity-based commands such "Watch TV" or "Listen to Music" to control a home AV system.
