    Functionality over style - I like it

    That's not too bad for a multi-purpose remote control, I'm tempted to get one for the front room setup at home.

    Interested in this... any chance of a hyperlinked higher res picture for the article?

    Bit hard to make out any of the buttons or detail on it, would've been good to get a closer look

    Snooty, this is the highest-res picture I could find: Harmony 300i.

    Hope it helps. I'll hyperlink it into the article too.

    Re: News - Logitech launches £29.99 Harmony 300i remote

    Overall, not sure about this. It's definitely cheap enough for me to consider buying, which is a plus compared to most of the other harmony remotes.

    Only problem is that it would be fairly frustrating to fork out for one, and then have all of the buttons at the top labelled wrongly. At least with the 600, although it's £20 more, you do get the customisable screen, and consequently so more many configuration options.

    I personally think the 300 looks a heck of a lot better though - at least in the glossy image Parm just found, not as keen on Dangel's version. For some reason it makes it look a bit cheap with the matt, even if it's much better for usage and fingerprints.

    Re: News - Logitech launches £29.99 Harmony 300i remote

    The US market appears to call it a 300 and it's matt black whereas the UK (Europe?) market calls it a 300i and it's glossy black.

    I can't seem to find out if it's IR or RF though - any clues?

    Re: News - Logitech launches £29.99 Harmony 300i remote

    Surely it won't be RF at that price?

    The 900 is touting it as an amazing feature and that costs £290!

    I used to think low price = IR until I got a Popcorn Hour C-200 and realised I'd rather cut off my own arms with a letter opener than use the bundled RF remote.

    It might be a stupid question but is there any way of finding out what (of the 225,000) devices it supports without either registering on MyHarmony or buying one?
