New Harmony Remote


Harmony 880 Logitech has come out with a new Harmony Remote. The Harmony 880 has a color screen instead of the black and white ones in their previous remotes. Also it comes with a charging dock to keep the batteries charged.




From the product page:


The Harmony 880 Advanced Universal Remote puts you in control of your entire audio-video system with just one button. It's home entertainment the way it should be - simple.


Optimized for complicated HDTV and PVR systems, the Harmony 880 helps you tame tough configurations like switching your television between video aspect ratios depending on the program source. The interactive color display lets you quickly choose a 16:9 ratio for movies and HDTV, or a standard 4:3 ratio for basic television programming.


This is a great looking remote, but I don't know if I would upgrade my current one. It doesn't look like the color screen adds much functionality, and the buttons don't look to be that easy to use just by touch.
