I love my wife and kids, but sometimes I just want to line them up and smack ’em all at one time. I bet all of you know exactly what I mean. One of the things that used to drive me crazy was that I was the only one in the house who could figure out how to press a button on the remote and choose an input to change from cable to the PS3.
Thankfully, before I went crazy or started running around smacking family members with the remote, I found the Logitech Harmony One. The sweet remote lets you set up activities that change inputs and all for you with the press of a button. The downside is that the Harmony remotes tend to be expensive.
Logitech has unveiled a new remote today called the Harmony 300. This remote lacks the LCD screen and activities functions of its big brethren, but is cheap. The 300 will replace four remotes and can be yours for $49.99 (USD). It also uses a cloud programming system that promises to be very easy. I say spend the extra $50 bucks and get a Harmony remote with activities, otherwise you are still going to have to change the inputs for someone in your house.
