 Logitech to Discontinue Console Gaming Products, Harmony Remotes
Thumbs down topic by LaRy BLanco - 01-24-2013, 09:39 PM


Logitech reported on its less-than stellar financials for Q3 of Fiscal Year 2013 this morning, naming a few product lines within the company set for deletion by the end of the year. Namely, Logitech will step away from its Harmony universal remotes and long-term commitment to console gaming peripherals.

Sales of Logitech products were down 14-percent for the third quarter, with a net loss of $195 million. According to Logitech CEO Bracken P. Darrell, the company plans to apply more focus on tablet accessories, like its profitable Ultrathin Keyboard Cover.

"We are taking immediate actions to shape a faster and more profitable Logitech," said Darrell. "My goal is to get Logitech back to sustained profitability as quickly as possible."

Other Logitech products on the chopping block by the end of 2013 include digital video security and speaker docks. PC gaming peripherals were not named in the list of outgoing product lines. Darrell reiterated the company's intent to continue work in the PC peripheral market, with investment in "selective categories." But along with console gaming peripherals and Harmony remotes, it's not immediately clear if PC gaming accessories will eventually end up among what Darrell referred to as, "non-strategic products."

The Harmony remotes are by far the best universal remotes available. I have a 1100 for my living room TV. If you have a multiple device setup (tv, receiver, cable/sat box, blu-ray player & game consoles), there is no better way to go.

You set up 'Activities' on the remote (ie. Watch TV, Watch Movie, Play Xbox 360 - all can be renamed to whatever you want) that 1 button press will set every device to what it needs to be on, which includes inputs, channels, devices on/off, etc.

Every button on the remotes is fully customizable to control any device button that you have. If there are hard buttons on the remote you don't use, you can remap them to do anything. You can put custom buttons on the screen and name them whatever you want.

I've been putting off getting one for the TV in my room but now I think I need to get one. I hope they don't stop support for these.
