I was mighty impressed back in September during my hands-on with the Logitech Harmony 1000 remote at CEDIA and the first reviews are finally starting to roll in. The folks at Remote Shoppe got their hands on this remote and are mighty impressed. There are two features that make this remote stand out—the easy setup and price tag. Most touchscreen remotes like the 1000 are required to be professionally installed. This one comes loaded up with Logitech's programming software that allows the remote to be configured easily via an Internet-enabled computer. Also, this remote has a $500 price tag, which may seems like a lot, but not compared to other, similar style remotes that push the $2,000 price mark. The only downside is the form factor. If you are the kind of person that needs the traditional-shaped remote, this may be worth avoiding. Other nice features include the recharging base station and tilt sensor that activates the LCD and backlight.
