Great size to have sitting with the other remotes. Plus clearly labeled functions.

Summary: I just didn't want to have my Xbox 360 controller for watching DVD's. Plus I can never remember what button does what on the controller. This is smaller than the controller so it's easier to having sitting on the table with my other remotes (especially since I have a Sony TV and the remote for that is the size of a that their game systems controller WITH a keypad). And functions are labeled. Nice and easy. What more could does anyone need?
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. The controllers shut off automatically which means you have to turn the controller on every time you need to start the next episode. After two years of dealing with this, I finally decided to do a quick search for Xbox remote controls.
Summary: I'm so glad I finally bought this. Was getting really tired of keeping the controller on the end table since it's bulky and if you bump something it screws what ever you're watching up. This remote is sleek looking and is smaller that I thought it would be which is great. It's actually smaller than our DirecTv remote.
Summary: I bought this for my son to use, and it has been a great investment. He's 8 and uses his XBox 360 as his cable box, this remote saves on the wear and tear of his controller as well, it is programmable to his Vizio TV. The volume button works for the TV bit it doesn't seem to have the ability to change the input. Overall, it is perfect for the price and I would recommend this product.
Summary: I was a bit skeptical of this remote, as I wasn't sure that it would work with my newer 2nd generation Xbox. Straight out of the box (after removing the plastic around the included batteries and installing them), this remote just works. It works with Netflix, Youtube, the System Video and Music Players, and even the Xbox Menus. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that this product is such an amazing value. Highly recommended.
Summary: Got this for my son with some of his birthday stuff. He likes watching Netflix and Amazon movies from his bed but was complaining that using the regular controller for this is a pain because every time he wanted to change settings or pause, the controller would be in sleep mode and he would have to wake it up and he would miss his pause spot. Also the constant waking and sleeping of his controller was killing the battery prematurely.
Summary: I was a little concerned to get this because it doesn't have the green XBMC button. I set my xbox 360 to automatically turn on the media center when you turn it on, and have no need for the button. :) The buttons are more responsive than the old white xbox remote. Very pleased for the price. One thing I did have to do when programming it was do a Google search for the programming code. Once I found it, it programmed quickly. I no longer use my TV remote control.
A must if you are a movie / video watcher on the Xbox.

Summary: This thing has been a great addition! I no longer have to wait for a controller to turn on to pause or control playback of videos. I no longer have to go thru so many batteries (which has saved money) because the controller is turned on all the time while watching Netflix. Drawbacks: I use a receiver for sound/video with the Xbox, and I am disappointed the volume can not be programmed for anything other than the TV sound/control.
