Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I've had maybe a half dozen xboxes and xbox 360's, and used 2-3 of them to play movies off my home server, off my windows media center (as an extender), off netflix, and heck, even from a DVD popped straight into the drive.

Pro:
+ More compact, more solid feeling than the old remote
+ I don't have to aim as precisely to control my xbox with this one as I did with the old remote (Xbox 360 Universal Media Remote)
+ works great as a universal remote for what I need it for. I *don't* need to change channels.
+ no confusing 'TV' mode, as compared to the old remote!

Con:
- no media center button. It was handy but certainly not required. Just a few more steps to start up the extender.
- no back-lighting on the buttons. Better know where they are!

I used the old remote (Xbox 360 Universal Media Remote) for years. I bought this replacement it and tried it out. It took a little fiddling to get the batteries in (look for the arrow on the bottom of the case, and slide the bottom that direction. The ENTIRE bottom slides to open up the battery slot).

The buttons feel better than the old remote: they have a more solid activation feel, and are less squishy. The remote's got a nice feel to it, and I like the more compact size. It's got separate power buttons for the TV and XBox, in addition to the 'X' button, which I like. It also has a much bigger sweet spot for controlling the xbox. I used to have to aim carefully, and even then try a few times for many of my presses on the old white remotes. This one works first time, every time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice, but where is the Green Button? October 22, 2011
By Eric B
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I like the look and feel, but didn't realize until afterwards that there is not a media center "green button". I liked that button on the other media center remotes because pressing that one button would turn on the XBox and launch Windows Media Center. Also, once you are in Media Center watching live tv, there is no single button (that I can find) which takes me to the main landing area of media center (pressing the back button a couple of times can usually get you back there). The "LAST" button doesn't do anything, but you can still use the center "OK" button to go to the last channel. MENU doesn't do anything either. Actually, pressing the MENU button plays the "you're trying to do something that is not available" ding...so I guess it does do something. Y and B do nothing in media center and X and A changes the channel up or down? I can't tell what the intended function of the remote is? Media Center or strictly XBOX guide? Perhaps it is intended to work better for the new upcoming updates (HBO Go, etc). All that being said, I would still buy another one.

Pros:
- Sleek look and feel
- Can control the TV (limited but functional)

Cons:
- No "green button"
- The LAST, MENU, Y, and B buttons don't function in media center
- No back-lit buttons

4.0 out of 5 stars No green button, no problem June 16, 2012
By James
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Thought I'd drop a quick review for this handy remote. I recently converted an Xbox 360 into a media extender and use this remote to watch TV / browse video on demand offerings. The remote works great! I read some reviews about the lack of the "green button" for Media Center and was a bit worried, but you do not need that button at all if you configure your xbox correctly. There is a setting on the xbox that allows you to default Media Center as the the app that loads anytime the xbox is powered on. Thus, hit the power button and boom.. media center loads. My only negative on this remote is that the buttons are not backlit for use in the dark.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lame replacement for the old remote October 26, 2011
By Hafhead
The Good:
- This is a vast step up from using the xbox controller to play movies.
- This is smaller than the old remote and finally matches the color of most other accessories.

The Bad:
- The channel selector doesn't work for the TV. This is used for something on the xbox instead. And since there are no longer TV and xbox modes for the remote, there is no way to use this to switch TV channels. At least the Input button works, so I can get to/from the xbox channel- but for my spare room where I have just a TV and xbox, I still need the TV remote.
- The backlit buttons are gone. And now that I'm using two remotes, it is more important than before to be able to see the buttons.
- The TV programming codes don't match the old remote, so you have to start from scratch to figure out which one works for your TV.

The Odd:
This isn't really a significant issue, but I've never seen a remote before that is front-heavy. The batteries in most remotes are toward the bottom, and they balance nicely in the hand. But this one has the batteries shifted slightly forward of center, and it feels like the thing wants to tumble out of my hand.

If you plan to use another remote for your TV anyway or use the TV exclusively for the xbox, this would be great. But for me, I'm probably going to go out and get another of the older remotes for my second xbox.

This is a must have if you use your Xbox 360 for Netflix. I only gave it 3 stars because it doesn't work 100% with my TV. It can only adjust volume and switch inputs on the TV
