Those are all incorrect. Only the 200 and 300 lack backlighting. All other models have backlighting. Only a few recent harmonys are touch: One, 900, 1100 and Touch. Also, not only is the 200 not RF, but it can only do one macro. You can still assign any function to any button. Logitech has dozens of non-touch models with backlighting and a movie button. You can also put any activity, including movie, on the screen.
What do you mean by "USB for PC"? I don't know of any remote that controls a PC via USB nor would that even be practical. Do you mean IR? Any remote can control a PC via IR.
In any case, I would avoid the 200 at all costs. I would also avoid all media remotes because most can't control TV or AVR volume and none can do macros. There is one model mentioned recently on TheGreenButton that is RF to the PC and IR to the TV/AVR.
Personally I find normal universal remotes to be far better and cheaper. I use the $8 RCA RCRP05BR. If you want something backlit, check out the URC WR7. I think it's around $20. Both are far better than low end harmonys. If you insist on a media remote, then the HP you linked should work fine but will be limited (no macros, limited device support, etc.).
