It looks like Logitech is finally making up for lost time in the remote arena. Yesterday, they showed the Harmony 700, which seems to slot in below the one and will probably replace some of the older, pre-Logitech inventory that's still out there.
Looks like they got some things right: color buttons are right there, and it looks like the standard rechargeable AA's can be charged through the USB port.
However, there's still no dedicated LIST button. Who does Logitech think buys a $180 remote. People without DVRs?
What remains to be seen, and this is all important stuff:
- How many devices
- How many activities (there are three hard activity buttons and a "more activities" button)
- Macros, yes or no
- IR Learning (probably yes, all the others have it)
I need a replacement for my trusty old 880. Neither the 900 nor the XSight make sense, so it's this or the "one."
Logitech's product page is here. The attached photo is from their page.
Let's see what we can dig up about this new remote!
