Harmony 650 remote
Why change a good thing? The three-year-old 650 is Logitech's new "entry-level" Harmony, and it's a still fantastic deal for something that can seamlessly replace all other remote controls, making your home entertainment system as easy to use as possible. There's a reason why so many CNET editors own one.

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.
