Logitech outs the sub-$100 600 and 650 Harmony remotes

The Harmony universal remote line just got two well-needed additions to its stable. The 600 and 650 offers most of the Harmony magic at a more affordable price-point. Both models do the computer-assisted setup thing that made the brand so successful in the first place, but forgos a few creature-comforts to reach the sub-$100 market.

The $99 650 seems like it’s just like the few-months-old 700 model with a small color screen and ergonomic feel, but lacks the rechargeable batteries. The $79 600 keeps the same body but comes with a monochrome backlit screen instead. But the easy-to-set-up macros and activites buttons are still in place so they are probably fine remotes. In fact, the 650 seems like a great deal over the 700 if you consider batteries are cheap and they tend to last a long time in these remotes. Just saying.
