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.
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...Read more ›
A few negatives would be that the remote is quite unresponsive at times, you often find yourself having to press buttons 2-3 times before you get a response. The remote can link up to your TV as well in order to operate volume and channel up/down. If you want to increase/decrease the volume by a large amount, you have to physically press the button for each volume change (meaning you cant just hold the button down). This kind of thing has been around for many years now and its strange how the manufacturer could miss such a simple design flaw.
There is also no STOP button for when playing videos, only PAUSE and BACK. The TV functions are restricted and you can only really change volume & channel, no AV output change buttom (that im aware of)
Its still better than all the fake/copies that are out there though !

Works well apart from it's an IR remote with quite a narrow beam so need to point it at the Xbox.
A wireless/bluetooth version would be better.
Works OK, buttons a little non responsive sometimes but with a hard press it work fine.Published 6 days ago by Mr. S. Cattell
