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: Great product! Don't have a range issue at all! The only reason the review gets 2 stars is because the description said it was used but in good condition. The only good thing about it, is functionality. It has been beat up. I was pretty angry when I saw how beat up it was.
Summary: I bought this to control our XBox 360 when we wanted to watch DVDs or online content, but I also wanted to be able to control the volume and change the channel on our TV. However, even though it has channel buttons, they're useless, since they don't work with any TV.
Summary: Soooo just like everyone else says. Yes, this doesn't work unless you have it pointed directly at the front of your Xbox and not everyone has their Xbox in the most ideal place for this. You have to really get it in it's sweet spot which is incredibly frustrating.
Summary: You would think that you would be able to use this like a controller but you have to have a direct line of sight to the controller for it to work. I have my xbox in a cabinet under my tv and I can play great without having to look at cables but this setup does not work with the remote.
Summary: Have to be standing directly in front of the XBox in order for the remote to work; the range seems very limited. I have to maintain a clear line of sight and press the buttons numerous times in order for anything to happen.
