Logitech’s 2.2-inch color touchscreen remote definitely had the looks of the bunch. Testing proved it had the brains, too. Instead of forcing you to toggle between various devices, the Harmony One is activity-based — select “watch a video” and it powers on all the required electronics at once and sets them to the proper inputs. And with codes for hundreds of thousands of devices, you can be sure that the off-brand CD changer you scored at some swap meet is in there somewhere.
Sleek remote with handy scroll wheel. But programming is burdensome, and the labyrinth of menus gets tedious fast.
