Logitech Harmony 650
Most people balk at the idea of spending more than $50 on a remote control, which makes the Logitech Harmony 650 such a perfect gift. It's the most affordable Harmony universal remote and still offers the excellent activity-based commands and Web-based programming that make the brand so beloved.

The good: Powerful universal remote with great ergonomics; color LCD screen surrounded by five contextual buttons; Web programmable via Windows or Mac PCs; excellent button layout and overall design; supports custom sequences/macros; sub-$100 price tag.
The bad: Only controls five devices; requires Internet-connected PC to program; adding favorite channel icons is a bit more difficult than it should be; an additional $20 gets you the step-up model rechargeable batteries.
The bottom line: The Logitech Harmony 650 is one of the best universal remotes you can buy for less than $100.
