Logitech Harmony 600 Remote Review

Ever had one of those days, when you can’t find the remote. The days that end up with you turning over every single piece of furniture in the house, only to find it stashed away in the drawer where you left it the night before? Or when your PVR remote decided to suddenly stop working because the batteries have run flat ? I know I have. Often.

Enter the Logitech Harmony 600 universal remote. Simple to set up, and even simpler to use. The universal remote, allows you to pre-program all your electronic devices in your home. This means your PVR, DVD, TV & Surround sound system; can be controlled from 1 single remote.

The setup of the remote is as simple as connecting to the Internet, selecting your equipment from a menu, and uploading it to the remote. You are also able to set specific programs up, which allow you to for example, “Watch a DVD”, and all the right buttons will be pressed. I been using one for the last week, and I am in awe. This is the ideal device for anyone who has more than 1 remote lying around.

The Logitech Harmony 600 remote retails for around R650, and is the ideal gift for the man who has (almost) everything.

The guys from Logitech also dropped off a new Logitech Colour Mouse to try out for a while. The wireless mouse is available in a number of different colour schemes from Blue right through to Pink.

The new Logitech Colour Collection mouse is lightweight & simple to use. Given my rather large hands, I adjusted to the mouse in no time at all, and have grown quite fond of it. They are priced at around R349 and can be purchased at most electronic retailers. Nice little stocking filler (hint hint wifee :))
