harmony_880_remote.jpgHarmony has made quite a name for the company with their universal remotes, for good reason. They have the user interface down better than anyone else in the industry. From the simple Mac- and PC-compatible software for programming the remote to the famous Help button to walk users through when problems arise with the remote's control of a system, Harmony deserves its place in the market. The 880 is a competent and highly flexible remote, capable of controlling up to 15 different components. Its color LCD display has up to eight buttons per page, allowing multiple start-up macros or extra buttons to be displayed, in addition to all the backlit hard buttons on the main body of the remote.

• Find an AV receiver to program into the Harmony 880.

Should your components not be in Harmony's database of codes, the remote can learn IR codes from the original device. The included lithium ion battery and charging dock keep the remote ready at all times. Should you forget to replace the remote in the dock, don't worry, the battery lasts for days between charges. All keys are backlit for use in dark environments and the LCD display is customizable to suit your tastes. All this comes for just $250.
