Not sure if this is a good deal or not. Logitec harmony ultimate one.
I was after a universal remote and was considering this.
Any opinions

Can't see the pic, too small, but if it's the ultimate, and not a rebox or similar, that's a bargain.

If as it says it is the Ultimate One, then it is a good universal IR remote. The One doesn't come with the hub like the Ultimate does (so you wouldn't be able to use it for anything that isn't plain old IR) which for a lot of people won't be an issue.

It is not a super cheap price but it is a good price.

Sorry the picture ain't great. It is just the ultimate so as you said would not have the hub. I was consider the 650 and then saw this. Now I'm not sure. As see mixed reviews..

These remotes are brilliant, take a bit of setting up online finding your devices, but great once done. Mine when selecting TV turns on the TV the sky box and puts the amp on the right channel, then if you choose DVD it turns off sky the DVD player on changes the input on the amp and the TV. My advice is buy one.

If you have an IR enabled smartphone just download 'Peel'.

Not a patch on a Harmony remote, for one a touch screen remote isn't as tactile as a proper remote, nothing worse than having to unlock a phone and look at the screen just to turn the volume up or down

​'Nothing worse' than having to look down at your own hand... How frequently are you changing volume? (1st world problems ay). Peel have also released a notification bar update so you don't need to unlock your screen

Do you have six digit product code? It should be in your receipt. Thanks

Great remote, used it for 2 years, still got some issues but is still the best remote

If you have the Hub Harmony do there own app for smartphones play.google.com/sto…hub

They also do two remotes for the Hub. I think this one logitech.com/en-…=60 is the one the OP has posted so it is a very good deal.

The other remote does not have a touch screen and sells for about £30 without the Hub.

Zero stock since last week according to my insider, OP is telling porkies

How am I telling porkies. I took a photo of it on the shelf. What do you want me to do a live video feed of me walking in to the shop to show you. All I can say is there was one box on the shelf with that price tag underneath as per the photo. I didn't buy it just noticed it there and asked on here if its any good?

Don't worry about it mate; some folks just can't be satisfied no matter what you do

Heat from me.

Relax, maybe your insider needs to taken out once in a while... I'm simply helping anyone wasting their time on this Tesco style wild goose chase. There is zero stock anywhere, no dna sample needed, just some common sense

Ah is that what you're calling an "insider" these days? lol. Mustn't be down with the kids. In that case I did just take my insider out very briefly when I went to the toilet

When all said and done though the Op was just trying to both help someone out and potentially get some advice on whether or not the remote was a decent deal. I don't personally think they were lying and as they're new to posting I'm happy to give them both the benefit of the doubt and a little support - as is the nature of this site.

Original Poster

I will also give the benefit of the doubt as maybe inside information is slightly out as there was only 1 box on the shelf so for some reason maybe stock count was out or whatever but I have no reason to lie. wasn't sure if this was national or not so wondered if anyone else could get hold of them. If when I go back the item is still there I may pick it up if it's gone then hope some one has grabbed a bargain after seeing it on here as still unsure if I really need this or not.

I picked up an as new harmony 700 for £15. Best purchase ever. (After my coffee machine and my basics wallet). A man of simple tastes.

Can confirm it was this price on Boxing Day in Currys Team Valley, had a few in too. I took it to the checkout then decided against it and put it back. Definitely the version minus the hub too.

But what about the insider... (_;)

Just bought one at Chester thanks op! Last one in the reduced to clear, if I knew how to upload a pic on my iPhone I would.

It's not a lot like infotainment systems in cars. At least not with your example. A touchscreen you can look straight at or a jog dial you've either got to fumble around with or look down at....hmmm...

Anything with a 97p in the price is a local clearance deal. As noted above, wild goose chase....

Great remote , mind

I have a Logitech hub and can recommend it above a standard ir remote. I found the problem with the activity based ir remote without the hub is that you have to point the ir remote in the direction of the equipment until ALL the commands have been sent, which can be quite a while if you're switching on multiple units and changing inputs etc. The hub is rf to the remote, so the remote doesn't have to be pointing at the devices at all, you just have to make sure the hub ir transmitter is seen by all devices. (Ir extender also possible so it can work in a cupboard)

Thanks for confirming the deal guys. Just waiting for the op to apologise for calling me a lier now.. Ha. I really do fancy a harmony of some description and maybe a hub based one would be favourable due to the position of some of my equipment. I can see my main problem being the wife and her getting use to it thou. I

You'll be fine, I managed to migrate my 65 year old Mum over to this exact remote a few months ago after I upgraded to the Ultimate Hub.

Could you give examples?

Ive been using a harmony 700 for years with:

All ir:
-tv
-amp
-apple tv
-htpc usb ir adapter
-sat tv

Heat added;)great remote I have one and it came with the hub paid around £85 for it including hub. last year Black Friday deal in Amazon. This is a brilliant remote and extremely easy to set up using their software.

PS3, PS4 and Wii all use Bluetooth and can be controlled via the Ultimate and hub but not the Ultimate One. The Roku unit I have can be controlled via WiFi rather than IR meaning I can hide the little unit rather than having to have it in line of sight. Then things like Phillips Hue and Alexa can link to the Hub for more control options in the future.

Really? I was wondering what besides the 'all remotes in one remote' advantage that it has, is the point of paying for, let's face it.. ANOTHER REMOTE! but that sounds pretty cool tell me more..

PS3 and PS4 can easily be controlled with a Harmony now If you have a HDMI-CEC enabled TV (most are now) as the TV commands can be sent to control the console.
