If you’re looking for a hot new universal remote to control all the new gear you got during Black Friday — and all the hot new gear you’re about to get for Christmas — it doesn’t get any hotter than the Logitech Harmony Elite Remote Control. The problem, of course, is that it’s quite expensive. Even on sale on Amazon, the Elite remote still costs $250 right now. If you’re willing to get a certified refurbished model that comes with a guarantee and a warranty, however, you can get one for just $199. It’s the first time this awesome remote has ever been under $200, and it might be the last time until next holiday season.
