    Living in the modern world of television loving generation, it is impossible to be without a TV set and in turn makes it also impossible to live without a remote control. The Logitech Harmony One is, yes, a remote control, also dubbed as and Advanced Universal Remote. This features a Color LCD touch screen, with outlined backlit buttons, and a dedicated on-screen activity buttons. The Logitech’s advocacy is “One touch changes everything--with endless entertainment control” A single touch. That’s all it takes for you to watch your favorite DVD, access your music, get a daily dose of your addictive TV shows or get a head start on your movie. You know why? You have the power to select the “Watch TV”, “Listen to Music”, or “Watch a DVD” to get into the fun. This remote control stays to its simplicity while still being fashionably cool. It is sure to make you want to touch it all the time. It has an ergonomic design that is comfortable to hold. The batteries are rechargeable so there is no need to get fussed up about it running out. The Harmony’s motion-sensitivity made it a fast-action streaming device. The Logitech’s Harmony One has a design that is too close to a mobile phone. You might get the two mixed up, so be careful. This comes in a non-frustrating and non-excessive packaging that only includes materials such as a hard plastic “clamshell” casing, wire ties and plastic bindings. The Logitech’s Harmony One Universal Remote has a Certified Frustration-Free version that is in-charge on removing 24 ounces out of its synthetic packaging. It also reduces 188 cubic inches from the entire package volume in comparison to the traditional retail version. The Logitech Harmony One’s high-technology capability allows it to have batteries that don’t need replacements. It has a sleek black and silver design that adds to its stylish feel. The bright white backlighting also makes the navigation easy to detect even in home theater darkness. The real brilliance of this product doesn’t come from its accessible setup or its universal applicability, but rather in the mere fact that it gathers operating electronics and turns it into an integrated system. Now you are hassle-free with the very simple programming functionality. No more burdensome, transfers of button by button through pointing the remote to another remote. The Logitech’s Harmony One allows simple installation of the software, entering of the model’s number, linking of the remote to your PC via USB, downloading the settings to it and then you’re all set. But if you think that his remote control has it all, you might want to double-check the battery’s shelf life. Although the battery can be recharged and can last more than 10 months, it literally dies down afterwards. Problems about the battery getting swollen, stops working, getting very tightly jammed or not charge at all may be encountered. You should also note that when you accidentally damaged your remote, there may be a possibility for it not to be replaced although it is clearly stated that the warranty covers anything but physical damage. So if you are planning to own this product, be sure to encase it in a diaper and a bubble wrap so you don’t have the same thing happen to you.

      Unpacking this remote control was a breeze unlike other products I have used were you have to resort to cutting the packing (as with some items). Now setting up the remote docking unit, I found that to be a breeze. The instructions to set the dock up were easy to follow. I left the remote overnight to ensure it was fully charged. Installing the software and updating the remote control was pretty straight forward, the only criticism would be the USB connector on the remote – it is a bit fiddly to get the cable plugged in. Configuring the remote was a breeze with a number of standard items eg AWA LCD TV, VCR, Xbox360, Panasonic PVR/DVD player. I did have a hopefully small problem with setting up a Noontec PVR which I am still working on. The TV, VCR, Panasonic PVR and Xbox, have all setup with little configuration input from me. They all work great. Almost a one touch and it works. I am especially pleased with the setup with the one touch setup for TV only, TV & VCR only, TV & PVR only, and TV & Xbox only The only problem as mentioned before is with my Noontec PVR. All functions but one work as needed. The exception is the OK button to select for example browsing into the hard drive to select a show to watch. As you move down the folders you either select Right arrow or OK to move through neither of these worked. I have no doubt that with more familiarity with the remote it will work fine. Overall a great remote control, it picks up all major brands and probably most minor brands. For those that it misses or configures 95%, it would take a little bit of hands on to get working.
