An excellent addition to any PS3 if you play media on yours,
This review is from: Sony Blu-ray Disc Remote Control (PS3) (Accessory)
This controller is excellent for playing MP3, Divx, Blue-ray..Well any media on your PS3.
It has all the options on the buttons and is far more natural to use for playing media than the functional Six axis. As some of the options on the remote are not obvious on the six axis.
It will turn on your PS3 as it has the PS button and if you use your PS3 as purely the best blue-ray media player out there then this controller is all you need.
It will display the battery level on screen when ever you press the PS button.
The only downside is it uses AAA batteries, but they seem to last forever so far. I've had my remote for a year now and it hasn't run down yet.
It is bluetooth not Infra-red so it doesn't matter where you point it, you will need to sync' the controller to your PS3 first but this is far simpler than it sounds.
On your PS3 go to your System settings and select additional Bluetooth controllers and follow the steps it will ask you to turn on your controller the PS3 will look for it, find it and its done. Its fully explained in the instruction manual.
I use mine for playing my MP4 and Divx movies..
Just a foot note but when you put your USB stick in your PS3 to play the movies it will say there is no compatible media on this device.. Hit the triangle for options and select show all media and the movies appear and play just fine.
