Logitech 900 Home Theater Remote Touchscreen Display, RF Support, Charging Dock, 100-ft Range

I personally don't understand what would make a person want to spend
upwards of $400 on a remote control for their home theater set-up. Are
we not lazy enough? Anyway, the world of high-end remotes has just
gotten a little big bigger with the latest product introduction from the
folks at Logitech, the Logitech 900 remote control. It's packed with
features and eye candy and is sure to give you even more reason to
remain a completely sedentary blob.

The Logitech 900 is based on the Harmony One platform and sports most of
the same features. This time, Logitech has added radio frequency (RF)
control right out of the box with no additional programming. So what
does this mean to you? Well, for starters, it means that you can control
most of your A/V components through cabinet doors and walls. No more
having to leave them hanging open while you're watching TV.

The Harmony 900 still has a full-color touchscreen and the intuitive
four-zone button layout that provides for intuitive touch control. As
with all of Logitech's Harmony remotes, you can control the sound
system, the TV and the DVD/Blu-Ray player, all at the touch of a button,
via Harmony's one-touch activity-based control. Actually, you can
control up to 15 devices with a single Harmony 900. Maybe if you can
afford 15 A/V devices you can afford to pay someone to change the
channels for you.

The Harmony 900 can control devices from up to 100-ft away, and with the
new RF option through closed doors. By placing the included IR
(InfraRed) blaster and one or two of the mini blasters on cabinet
shelves within sight of the devices you want to control, the RF
receivers in these devices will translate RF commands sent from the
remote into IR - a language your components are sure to understand. On
the 900's touchscreen, you can pick and choose which devices are
controlled with RF and which are controlled with standard IR signals.

Logitech's Harmony 900 should be available sometime in September. For a
mere $399.99 you get a charging cradle, a rechargeable battery, power
supply, IR blaster and two mini blasters.
