5.0 out of 5 stars PS3 Remote, 4 July 2007
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Sony Blu-ray Disc Remote Control (PS3) (Accessory)
The PS3 remote is a useful gadget for 2 good reasons: 1) it allows a non-gamer to navigate around the PS3 music, films. photos etc 2) it makes moview viewing a lot simpler. Buying this has allowed my wife to enjoy the console which makes it worth the money alone.

I've tried using the sixaxis game controller to watch DVDs and it can be a problem. Firstly the left stick can be knocked pretty easily when you have it sat on your lap causing the playback speed to change. Secondly, it is all to easy to press the wrong (unlabeled) button when you need to pause or resume.

With the remote you have a well laid out, well labeled set of buttons that includes all of the options that would normally require on screen display (such as the audio and angle options) as well as an eject button and all of the game contoller buttons. You can even use it with the web browser if you don't mind the slightly slower screen navigation.

Note: it does have a fuly functional PS button on it so you can use it to turn the system on and off (to standbye) and, like the game controller, you can use it to have multiple functions running at the same time (such as the music player with the photo viewer)
