Far too long have I dreaded a Logitech Harmony remote. Yes, my living room is cluttered with more remotes than a Radio Shack clearance section. But I’m a practical tech guru. I love my gadgets but not ones that contradict my personal flow. If I’m looking for a true All-in-one remote I should not be expected to shell out additional cash for hardware to make something — all-in one remote — work. This is where snakebyte comes in. Just announced at CES 2011, this innovative Bluetooth/Infrared Universal remote control contends for the true All-in-one remote. Did I mention it will also support an additional 5 A/V devices.
Li-ion battery chargeable through USB and update-able firmware. Look out for my review, becasue I plan on pushing this guy to the limit!
The snakebyte™ Premium Bluetooth Remote will retail for $49.99 and will be available April 2011 at www.snakebyte-usa.com and other e-tailers.
