Long time ago i was looking for an all in one remote control to get rid off my 4+ remote controls, then a few days ago me & Ali went to Hawali and we spotted Best Buy (the Kuwaiti version), it was the first time for me in Best Buy KWT. I liked it, it was well organized with an up to date gadgets i even saw a variety of Logitech’s Universal Remotes.

What comes in the box:

  • Harmony One remote control.
  • Base station.
  • AC adapter with 6′ DC output cord (DC Output: 5V/0.8A).
  • Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery (950mAh/3.7V).
  • 63″ USB cable with in-line noise filter (has a USB Type A connector on one end and a mini-USB “Version 2.0” connector on the other end).
  • Cleaning cloth.
  • Logitech Harmony Remote 7.4 software disc (for Windows Vista/XP/2000 and Mac OS X 10.3+)
  • Harmony One Installation manual (English/Spanish/French/Portuguese)
  • Logitech Harmony One Features Guide.
  • Harmony Customer Support numbers.
  • Information booklet.

After using it for around 4 days i noticed the following:

Pros:

  • Sleek design
  • Sharp LCD that offers a touch-screen interface
  • Web programmable via Windows or Mac PCs
  • excellent button layout and design
  • rechargeable lithium-ion battery and docking station.

Cons:

  • Little bit pricey.
  • Touch screen requires you to look at the remote to be sure you hit the correct buttons.
  • Glossy black finish shows fingerprints.

It is available in Amazon for around KD52 (without Aramex shipping) and i bought it for KD55.

    Mishary, Thank you so much for this useful review.

    I’ve been stuck in finding a suitable URC to control different projectors that I lost their remote controls. its not easy to find a URC that controls projectors unless it is programmable RC.

    I’ve just visited it’s site and checked that it is compatible with most of my projectors.

    thank you again ! 😀

    Having a universal remote can make a big difference. I know what you mean because I used to have like 4 remote controls. When I got my Bose speakers I synchronized all the other appliances using the Bose universal remote and it was such a blast to use only 1 remote, but then it becomes a bother to switch between them with a button (at least to me, its shocking i’m this lazy). Anyway, I dont doubt the quality of logitech. They never disappointed me with anything.

    Glossy black finish shows fingerprints. Just wear gloves when you use it LOL.
    I wanted to get one long ago but then i decided to wait cause I couldn’t find an IR 240V light switch. I was planning to turn lights on and off using remote 7ady lazy. As for the price you can get it cheaper than 50KD.

    The thing rules. The only issue I have with it is the sometimes slow response of their web server. Especially since you have to click through like 10 screens to get one activity done.

    it’s pretty good. The only thing is that it doesn’t come with a repeater built in.
