Logitech Harmony One Remote Control

Introduction

Harmony has been building universal remotes for a number of years now.  Honestly a couple of years ago, with the release of the 880, Harmony converted me from years of using Phillips Pronto remotes.  The Harmony remotes were simply easier to program and faster to change when a new component was introduced or swapped.  And they could be dropped on the floor and stepped on by dogs without any serious damage.

Each new model works on perfecting the last incarnation with an easier to use more flexible platform. The Harmony “One” is the newest of the bunch and touts a snazzy touch screen and a black glossy finish.  It looks impressive but I wanted to find out if it is as impressive to use.
