Summary: Great remote and works very well - Only downside is you have to point it directly at the xbox receiver to get it to work. Aim slightly off course and it won't do anything. - Annoying for us as we have a dog that likes to inconveniently sit right in front of our entertainment center.
Summary: Works well but suffers from a lack of ergonomics and bad layout. It's great that there is a separate power button for both TV and the Xbox. However the biggest drawback of this remote is the shape of the buttons. Most of the buttons are the exact same size and shape.
Great size to have sitting with the other remotes. Plus clearly labeled functions.

Summary: Looks well made and sturdy. If we could figure out how to program or connect this, we'd probably like it. It came packaged in a white unmarked box with no instructions or papers of any kind. I eventually plan on looking online as to how to get it to work. But feel like I shouldn't have too.
Summary: I got this remote so I could control my tv and Xbox on the same remote when I watched movies. I was very disappointed when I wasn't able to program it for my tv, the directions are very confusing and even when I tried to contact someone on Xbox support I got no help with it.
Works perfectly. So much easier than using the gaming controller for TV-like services.

Summary: My roommate and I use my Xbox for everything. Hulu, HBO Go, Netflix and the occasional gaming. Using the Xbox for everything TV related makes for an annoying task when you have to use the gaming controllers to navigate.
