The Harmony 1100i is Logitech’s premium universal remote control within its Harmony range. It features a large LCD touchscreen next to controls that should work on any device (volume, channels and directional choices).
Pros: Like the rest of the Harmony range, the emphasis is on ‘activities’ that you predefine via a very slick Web interface. The 1100i takes this a little further than other Harmony remotes, as you can also define your own buttons and the screen placement for them.
Cons: Unlike the wand-style remotes, the 1100i is strictly a two-hands affair, which can be fiddly. We found one HDMI switch in our setup that couldn’t be identified, which was disappointing. It’s also undeniably in a premium price bracket, which puts it out of reach of many home theatre enthusiasts.
Verdict: A nice remote, but too costly.
