Editors' note: Confused about how this model stacks up to other Harmony remotes? See CNET's "Which Logitech universal remote is right for you?" for updated comparisons and recommendations.

The $20 Logitech Harmony 200 is a well-designed universal remote with great ergonomics. You program it via streamlined wizard-style setup software (Mac or PC) that's optimized for tech novices

The Harmony 200 only controls three devices and requires a computer with Internet access to configure. For just $40 more, a step-up model adds an LCD screen and uses the activity-based commands that Harmony is known for.

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

Basic universal remote control

 

If you're looking for a high-quality universal remote control at a bargain-basement price point, critics say the Logitech Harmony 200 is the best option around. Most note that the Harmony 200 features a sturdy, ergonomic physical design, four...

Four programmable buttons, easy to program and use, cheap, ergonomic and sturdy

Lacks bells and whistles of expensive models, only controls three devices, no skip forward/back buttons

The cheapest Logitech Harmony remote yet is also the easiest to use.

Affordable ; Easy to use ; Great build quality

No device indicator ; 3-device limit

Owners of expansive home cinema systems will understand the frustration that comes with searching for the right remote control for each piece of equipment. One way to deal with this is to buy a universal remote, but these can be expensive. Not so with...

An easy to use remote that is almost certain to support your home cinema system. If you’re fed up with multiple remotes, it's a great buy

Lost the remote to the tv and the side buttons were faulty. It's a off-brand so couldn't find a remote that worked, till i found this one. Set up is easy as pie, Read the manual before trying and It's 3 steps. 1. Put the batteries (Included) in 2. Plug...

"Very easy to configure."

 

I bought this model today, and I can say that's very easy to configure. I probed it with one strange brand of TV, and although that brand was not recognized, when I had to configure the commands, with only three short steps, the control was completely...

Size, weight, price, material quality, ease of programming....

Maybe needs some free buttons to set additional functions

The software is the worst POS imaginable.

 

Don't buy it. You WILL regret having it as soon as you need to (re-)program it.

Great remote

Software this bad should mean jail-time for the developers. Seriously
