Poor range/layout and difficult to use in a dark room

R. Hebshie, Amazon
31 March 2016
  • Summary: While this re-designed media remote is more sleek and streamlined than the older model, the black color and lack of backlit keys makes it very difficult to use in a dark room. The remote also has pretty limited range and line of sight.

Not very reliable

SteveInFrisco, Amazon
4 March 2016
  • Summary: The signal must be really low because when I point this remote at my Xbox and push buttons at about 6 to 10 feet away from the unit it has a really hard time registering the commands and it doesn't respond. I have tried replacing the batteries with no difference in performance.

Not useful for controlling TV

Taylor Easum, Amazon
2 December 2014
  • 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.

Dosent work through cabinets

rcobelli, Amazon
22 March 2014
  • 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.

Did not work with my xbox

Hellen Earles, Amazon
6 September 2013
  • Summary: This seemed like a great remote but it just would not work with my xbox. Would turn tv on an off and raise and lower volume but that is all it would do. My xbox is several years old so may not be compatible with it.

Works, but not complete

Brian S., Newegg
16 February 2013
  • Summary: Overall the remote works, but by no means replaces the old (no longer available) white media remote.
  • Pros: It controls the xbox and works with most feature in Windows Media Center.
  • Cons: The remote is missing many buttons that are required for use with windows media center. There isn't even a stop button on the remote. The remote is also missing the "start" button (brings up the main menu in windows media center) as well as the tray "open/close" button.
