Logitech Harmony 300Price: $50

Roger said: Logitech has many models above the Harmony 300 that should suit the needs of those who require a fully featured, activity-based remote control for a complex A/V system. But if all you need is an inexpensive, basic universal remote that can control up to four components and is incredibly easy to program, the Harmony 300 is an excellent choice.

Read the SoundStage! Xperience review.

The gist: A deal for under $50 street price.
