Logitech debuts 510 remote

Logitech has recently added another universal remote to its Harmony line with the Harmony 510. The entry-level remote sports 45 buttons and is capable of controlling five different devices. Based on the familiar shape shared with new and old remotes such as the Harmony 550 and Advanced Universal Remote for Xbox 360, the Harmony 510 has a different color scheme and a slightly different key configuration, including two fewer buttons. Unlike the 550, however, the less expensive 510 includes a battery status indicator and guided online set-up, in addition to what Logitech calls Onboard Intelligence and One-Touch Activity-Based control functions.

The last two functions help users troubleshoot set-up problems without going back to the computer and turning on multiple devices with the press of one button, respectively. Physically, the 510 differs from the 550 as it replaces the bottom Sound, Picture and A and B buttons with four color-coded buttons that act as shortcuts and gets rid of two dedicated up and down buttons. Like the other Harmony remotes, the 510 requires four AAA batteries to operate, and is compatible with Windows XP and Vista as well as Mac OS X 10.3 or later.

The 510 can be purchased on Logitech's website now, priced at just shy of $100. [via Crave]
