REVIEW

Acoustic Research ARRU449

The Acoustic Research Universal Smart Remote works well once you've managed to set it up, but it cannot replace the easy-to-use experience with that of a Harmony remote.

REVIEW

Logitech Harmony One Advanced

While it's missing an RF option, Logitech's Harmony One is one of the best--if not the best--universal remote we've ever tested.

Nyko Blu-Wave Infrared Remote ( PS3)

The Nyko Blu-Wave Infrared Remote is a cheap and easy way to add IR remote compatibility to your PS3, but the inability to power the console on or off is an annoying limitation.

Logitech Harmony 1000
REVIEW

Logitech Harmony 1000
