Logitech's Harmony line of remote controls has been praised by many over the years, but it'is also known for being rather pricey -- except for the aging Harmony 500 series remotes. Looking to shake off that stigma the company has introduced two new sub-$100 models to its lineup, the Harmony 600 and Harmony 650, which will go on sale later this month for $79.99 and $99.99, respectively.
The Logitech Harmony 600 keeps things fairly simple with a backlit monochrome display, while the Harmony 650 packs a color screen and icons for both your favorite channels and for common commands. Both models support more than 250,000 home entertainment devices from over 5,000 brands. Compared to the Harmony 700 they mainly drop two features: they can control five devices instead of six and are not rechargeable.
Like all Harmony remotes, though, these models are programmable via a Mac or Windows PC and use activity-based commands to control your home audio and video systems.
