Cheering Tech CASE Remote

Though it's far from perfect, the Case Remote offers an inexpensive way to add Wi-Fi capabilities to many Canon and Nikon dSLRs.

Logitech Harmony Ultimate
REVIEW

Logitech Harmony Ultimate

Despite its high price and a handful of drawbacks, the Logitech Harmony Ultimate is an impressive, feature-rich universal remote that's well worth the investment, particularly if you have a lot of components in your system.

Logitech Harmony Smart Control
REVIEW

Logitech Harmony Smart Control

The Logitech Harmony Smart Control combines RF functionality and smartphone control in an affordable universal-remote package, but the complexity of the initial setup will burden some buyers.

Logitech Harmony Touch
REVIEW

Logitech Harmony Touch

The Harmony Touch can't justify the high price of its touch screen compared with traditional multibutton universal remotes.

REVIEW

Logitech Harmony 200

If you only need to control three devices, the Logitech Harmony 200 is the best universal remote you can buy for under $20.

Peel Universal Controller
REVIEW

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.

GlideTV Navigator
REVIEW

GlideTV Navigator

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.

Logitech Harmony 900
REVIEW

Logitech Harmony 900

The Logitech Harmony 900 is an impressive universal remote but it loses some of its luster with the release of the Harmony Ultimate, which replaces it in the Harmony line.

REVIEW

Philips Prestigo SRU8015

The Philips Prestigo SRU8015 universal remote offers relatively easy setup and good control flexibility, but it's sabotaged by a poorly implemented scroll-wheel control.

Logitech Harmony 510
REVIEW

Logitech Harmony 510

The Logitech Harmony 510 is a good PC-programmable universal remote, but you should opt for one of the two nearly identical Harmony models instead.

Acoustic Research  ARRU449
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.

Logitech Harmony One Advanced
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.

REVIEW

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.

REVIEW

Hercules Tunes Explorer Wireless remote control

The Hercules Tunes Explorer Wireless lets you access your digital music library from across the room--but whether or not you find that useful is another issue.
