Peel Universal Controller
The Peel is an affordable iPhone/iPod universal remote that helps you filter your TV viewing options, but its current shortcomings--inability to bookmark future shows for recording and the dearth of a native iPad app--make the $99 hardware component tough to recommend.
Jabra Speak 410
The Jabra Speak 410 is for those who want a portable speakerphone for VoIP calls and the occasional music playback, but we do wish it had more features considering its price.
TiVo Slide Remote
The TiVo Slide is a must-have remote for owners of compatible TiVo DVRs.

Belkin AV360 Mini-DisplayPort converter for 27-inch iMac
Belkin's AV360 iMac adapter edges out the competition by making it easier to connect HDMI-based video components to your iMac's Mini DisplayPort. We'd prefer that Apple had gone with HDMI in the iMac to begin with, but until it makes that switch, this is the adapter we'd pick.
Own a 27-inch iMac? Dying to connect a game console, Blu-ray player, or other HDMI-equipped device? Cursing Apple for using Mini DisplayPort instead of HDMI for video input? The situation might be frustrating, but that doesn't make the Kanex XD adapter less effective. We recommend it to those looking to bridge the gap between the living room and their large iMac.
Logitech Harmony 650
The Logitech Harmony 650 is one of the best universal remotes you can buy for less than $100.
Logitech Harmony 600
If you can't spend $100 or more on a universal remote, the Logitech Harmony 600 is a great choice.
Nyko SpeakerCom 360 ( Black)
The Nyko SpeakerCom 360 is a great idea on paper, but is seriously flawed in its actual performance.
Logitech Harmony 300i
If you're looking for a cheap and easy universal remote--and you can live with its streamlined feature set--the Logitech Harmony 300 is a great choice.
The GlideTV Navigator strikes a decent balance between ease of use and living room acceptability, but Logitech's diNovo Mini is a better tool for controlling a PC via your HDTV. The Navigator's saving graces are its built-in Mac support and, for those who dislike the Logitech BlackBerry-style keys, a software keyboard. If neither of those features appeals to you, the Logitech device is a better product for couch-based computing.
