3. Philips Universal Remote review

Philips Universal Remote

Philips Universal Remote

This remote pairs with up to eight devices, including smart TVs, streaming services, your cable box, a VCR and more. It’s reasonably priced and comes with programmable buttons that are color-coded for some of the most common streaming services: Netflix, Hulu and Amazon. The colors of the programmable buttons correspond to these services without naming them, which we thought was a nice design element. This remote is a great for those who use multiple streaming services, and it’s also compatible with Apple TV and Roku. It also lacked an eject button, so if you sync the remote with your DVD or Blu-ray player, you must get up or use another remote to eject your disc. This remote stood out because of its silver sheen, but some of our testers said that design element made it difficult to read the buttons. Our testers also said it wasn’t curved or ergonomic, making it easy to drop.

Harmony Express 350 The Good and the Bad. To sum things up out of the gate, Logitech’s Harmony 350 is a good no-frills remote that gets you a decent IR remote at a very inexpensive price.

All Harmony models, including the new Harmony 300, can only control IR (infrared) devices. Harmony remotes cannot control RF devices. … The RF signals are sent from your Harmony Remote to the RF Wireless Extender or Harmony RF System which can be located inside your cabinet.

6. Ray Super Remote

Ray Super Remote

Ray Super Remote

The Good the Ray Super Remote has a phone-like touchscreen that puts other dedicated remotes to shame. It offers simple setup without having to use a separate app or device. You can use it to find shows to watch. The Bad the Ray is expensive and not as capable as some cheaper Logitech Harmony remotes. A phone-like screen, simple interface and TV show suggestions aren’t enough to overcome the competition for Ray’s expensive remote. For every other kind of control, you’ll be looking down at the remote, then back up at the TV, then down at the remote, quite a bit. Depending on how many commands you normally issue, this can be more or less tedious, but the simple fact is that with a well-designed button-centric clicker like Harmony’s, you can keep your eyes on the screen while you drive around your device’s on-screen menus mainly by feel.
