I have to be honest with you: I’m not a huge fan of Logitech Harmony remotes. I don’t dislike them or anything, but I had one for a while and I ended up leaving it in a drawer. I simply didn’t use any of the bells and whistles Logitech Harmony offers, so it ended up just being a really expensive basic universal remote. If you’re like me and you only plan to use a universal remote to perform basic functions, save yourself $100+ and pick up a GE 33709 Universal Remote Control instead. It’s on sale right now on Amazon for just $9, or you can upgrade to a version with backlighting for $13!
