Logitech's 1100 goes above and beyond its predecessor with a black anodised aluminium finish and the ability to customise the controls on the 3.5-inch touchscreen.
Beyond that, things have remained fairly unchanged. It still handles as many as 15 devices from a database of 175,000 and has wireless RF capability when paired with the Logitech Harmony RF Extender. The remote is expected to ship in February for $US500, but since the upgrade isn't groundbreaking, you may want to stick with the 1000. It can be had for under $US300 online.
