Logitech Introduces the Harmony 510 Universal Remote

The average consumer makes their first entry into the integrated world through the remote control. It is no wonder then that the remote manufacturers are producing low cost universal remotes that will entice said average consumer. What is surprising is that Logitech has not made a big deal about their newest remote, the Harmony 510 Universal Remote. The 510 is a carbon copy of Logitech’s Harmony 550 with a different color scheme and a few button changes. The 510 also steps down from 15 controllable devices to 5. This leads to a more streamlined control and programming arc for those who are still new to universal remotes. Logitech does have an impressive control database of over 225,000 devices from over 5,000 manufacturers so the 510 should control most any device created in the last 10-15 years. The MSRP for the 510 is $99.99, but it can be found in many places on the net for under that amount. If you’re savvy enough to be reading this, the 510 is probably not the right remote for you due to the low number of devices it controls. It would however, be a perfect gift for the not-so-techie friend/relative that you want to drag into the new millennium. Remember, the holidays approach.
