Logitech Harmony 688

The Good Web-programmable universal learning remote; activity-based programming and usage; DVR-friendly button layout; fully backlit keys and LCD; compatible with Windows and Macintosh machines.

The Bad Mushy rubber buttons; lack of spacing between keys makes it hard to navigate by touch; no RF support; Web interface may frustrate some users.

The Bottom Line The Web-programmable Logitech Harmony 688 universal remote is a must-have home-theater accessory.
