4.0 out of 5 stars Great addition for a 360 used as a media center 29 April 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Since they added LoveFilm, Netflix, iPlayer, etc. to the 360 it has become the center of my home cinema. I use it to play all my downloaded video files, stream movies and (of course!) play games. I wanted a remote as using the controller all the time was 1) wasting batteries and 2) cumbersome.

After receiving the remote the first thing I noticed was how good looking it is. I have the new slim 360 and the remote has the same piano black finish. It looks really smart. It requires 2 x AAA batteries which were provided in the box - always a bonus!

Within minutes I had set it up to control my TV too so now I only have one remote for the TV and the 360 which is really convenient. The remote doesn't need to be synced to work but it does require line-of-sight. The instructions for controlling your TV with it are in the box and it's a really simply process.

If you use your 360 to play any media then this is a must-buy. My only criticism is that it doesn't replicate the trigger & bumper buttons functionality so you can't skip through content a screen at a time - you have to scroll through the items one by one. This is the only reason it didn't get 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars IT WORKS! Fantastic 26 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase
I was fed up with my controller powering down when watching films through my Xbox so decided to buy this remote. I had read all the negative reviews about the line of sight having to be straight on to the console for it to work, but I didn't let them put me off and bought it anyway. After all it was under a tenner (delivered). It arrived swiftly in 3 days and was easy to set up. I found my TV code on the Xbox website which surprised me as my tv is not a mainstream brand (it's a Hannspree). The tv controls are basic but work fine and the Xbox controls are all ready to go straight from the box. The remote works great from all angles in my average sized lounge and my Xbox is in a tv cabinet with glass doors (which were closed when I tested it) so nothing to worry about. I'm glad the other reviews didn't put me off. Buy it you won't be disappointed! IT WORKS!!

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I brought this remote in December when I was looking for something extra to add to my "Secret Santa" present for a friend and found this for £13, which was ideal to bring me up to my £30 limit - and while I was buying it for them I decided to get one for myself - why not, after all it was Christmas?

I know remote controls aren't particularly exciting but it seems good quality, plus its small and light; personally I would have preferred a matt finish, but that is just me.

After some light to medium use (as I tend to do most of my DVD etc. view on my PS3) I have found that the remote seems to do what it is supposed to do - i.e. it turns the Xbox on, navigates the menus, selects whatever content you want to view, plays it, pauses it, stops it, etc. - it even controls the TV (something which my PS3 remote cannot do as it uses Bluetooth tech). I personally didn't find this too difficult to set up, but I would say that the instructions left a little to be desired and I think the more technologically shy would spend a little bit more time than I did trying to get it working.

Again, the remote controls the TV (mine is a Sony Bravia HDTV) without any problems - turns the TV on/off (standby), changes standard channels, selects the alternative inputs such as HDMI 1, 2, 3, etc. changes the volume... and so on and so forth.

The only thing I can say against it would be that you have to make sure you are pointing directly at the 360 - and I know this is the case with all standard remotes (well, usually the general direction and this seems a little more direction sensitive) but I've probably been spoiled by the PS3 bluetooth remote, as you can literally point that anywhere and it will do as instructed. And the only other minor point would be...

5.0 out of 5 stars Microsoft Media Remote (Xbox 360) 26 May 2012
By James

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you use your Xbox 360 as a media center, and spend more time streaming video and music to your HDTV with it than you do playing video games, you may be interested in Microsoft's new 360 slim Remote. Its easy to setup, & has a nice glossy finish to it!! Awesome :) I would highly recommend it to anyone. 5/5

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful, but has some downsides 16 Oct. 2013
By Piers
Verified Purchase
So, when flicking through the settings on my Xbox I discovered that I could enable standard Windows Media Center remotes, which I have. This proved incredibly useful for watching videos on my Xbox, but interfered with my PC, which I use in the same room as a media center (e.g. I'd hit the WMC button on the remote and it'd turn the Xbox on, when all I wanted to do was start WMC on my PC). I decided to buy this, as yes, more remotes is a nuisance, but I figured the benefits would outweigh that negative - after all, I use both devices for different video requirements (locally stored films and TV on PC, YouTube and Netflix on Xbox).

Other than a really sharp plastic edge on the top (which may be a manufacturing flaw as it's only really noticeable on the left), this is comfortable to just hold in my hand while I watch videos (I tend to hold on to remotes so I can instantly pause etc. rather than fumble around looking for it). I use a computer monitor rather than a TV screen, but I'm sure the TV controls on this remote are as useful as other reviewers have said. For the functionality this remote offers, it's useful and I certainly don't regret purchasing it.

The negatives then:
-The top is glossy plastic. I really don't understand why any manufacturer chooses this finish on products that are going to be handled a lot... it's like the car paints in GTA V - glossy looks more 'premium' than matte, but it shows up marks clearer. And naturally, there's going to be a lot of fingerprints covering this remote. For comparison, my WMC remote has a matte finish on the top, and yes, it looks cheaper (although it isn't), but it also looks brand new despite several years of use. After using the Xbox remote for a day, it looks like I've been using it all week.
-A keyboard would be nice.
