Fremont, Calif. - Logitech has added to its line of Harmony remote
controls with the addition of two new models.

The Harmony 650

The
Harmony 600 and Harmony 650 remotes are each designed to replace up to five
other remotes, and both feature one-click activity buttons.

model ($79.99) has a monochrome backlit screen that displays power and volume
commands, while the 650 ($99.99) has a color screen that displays channel icons
as well as commands.

the remotes, users go to www.logitech.com/myharmony

"From
Betamax to Blu-ray, you can be sure the Logitech Harmony remote can control
virtually any IR home-electronic device," the company said.

remotes are scheduled to be available this month.
