Best Universal Remote Controls

31 Days of Spring Cleaning: Buy (and Use) a Universal Remote

There may be some stylish ways to wrangle your remote controls, but the question that begs to be asked is — "Do you really need all those remotes in the first place?"

Buying and programming a universal remote can rid your coffee table of clutter and help you streamline your viewing experience. The Logitech Harmony Touch ($214) has been invaluable in my house since it controls all of my components — from my TV to sound system, DVD player, even my PS3 — and comes with an easy-to-use touchscreen. If you already have a universal remote, let this serve as a reminder to program it already. It'll make your life so much easier.
