does the job well,
This review is from: Xbox Official DVD Movie Playback Controller (Video Game)
The unit itself is pretty good, and it picks up the signal from the remote from a good distance. The handset is large, but well in character with the xbox itself.
The IR unit has to be plugged into one of the four controller slots, which is fine if you don't have three mates playing games on it often.
The xbox itself plays dvd's fairly well, certainly better than most mid-range DVD players in themselves, but to really get the most, you need to get a better connection that the standard scart and use s-video. Sadly that costs you more money.
Personally, if I had a DVD player before buying xbox, I would not bother buying it - but the dvd kit makes your xbox into a perfectly acceptable DVD player with no hassles and is very easy to get to grips with
