4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent remote, but prefer the 360 one March 7, 2014
I'll start by saying I really like this remote. It feels sturdy and is good of quality as you can expect from something primarily made of plastic. It does the job, and works great. I even like that it is smaller and simpler than my older Xbox 360 and PS3 remotes. I only wish they hadn't downsized it SO much.

I actually haven't missed the number buttons my 360 & PS3 remotes have. I never realized how little I used them until they were gone and it didn't affect me much. They are mostly just used for chapter selection in a DVD, where I usually just use the next/previous chapter buttons for anyway. The backlit keys are a nice feature that my black 360 remote doesn't have (though my old white one does). There are times when I wish some of the old functionality was here. I also liked the A,B,X,Y buttons so I could navigate through any DVD or game menus the same way as a normal controller without needing to figure out which buttons mapped to what functions. I liked my black Xbox 360 remote's separate power buttons for both the TV and Xbox. And call me crazy, but I also liked having an eject button. I suppose that one makes more sense to remove with a slot-loading drive though.

The button style is closer to the newest black Xbox 360 remote design, where they are hard and clicky instead of the older white Xbox 360 remote design that had soft, subtle buttons. I don't really have a preference as far as hard/soft buttons go, just pointing it out.

Probably the biggest con though, is shared between this one as well as all versions of the Xbox 360 one: infrared. My PS3 controller uses Bluetooth, so it works from anywhere in my house regardless of line-of-sight with the IR receiver.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nearly perfect April 7, 2014
Verified Purchase
Complaints from my girlfriend about watching TV through the Xbox One have fallen to nearly zero since obtaining this remote. It has paid for itself in that fact alone. No longer do we have to yell at the Xbox repeating the same thing over-and-over like idiots (for further reading, check out the definition of insanity that is commonly attributed to Einstein). The auto-backlighting is great at night, but it is slightly hard to see during the day. This remote has two major issues. The first is that it has to see the actual Xbox enclosure - for whatever brilliant reason it doesn't directly communicate with the Kinect (this is a complaint separate from how the remote works in practice - once the Xbox receives the commands from the media remote, the Xbox then uses the Kinect to blast commands to your electronics). If you don't have line of sight to your Xbox console, the remote is useless. The second issue is the lack of ABXY buttons. Most of the functions are assumed by other buttons on the remote (i.e. the back arrow generally equals B/red), but not always and it isn't immediately apparent how to use the remote in some apps. Microsoft could have colored the backlights for those buttons to match their controller equivalents, colored the buttons themselves, or simply added explicit ABXY buttons on the remote.

Overall, this is a great remote and I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nicely made, easy to use. March 17, 2014
Verified Purchase
The Xbox One Media Remote arrived today, and after just a couple of hours with it, I have to say I like it quite a bit.

For starters, the packaging: Like all the packaging for the Xbox One and it's official accessories, Microsoft is really doing things right. No plastic clamshell cases that require scissors, a crowbar, and a blowtorch to open. Just an elegant, simple box that opens with the lift of a lid, and the contents firmly ensconsed within, sitting in a molded cardboard cradle. Lift the cardboard tray, and the two included AAA batteries are attached on the underside. Beneath the tray you will find the warranty info, manual, and quickstart guide.

The first thing I noticed when holding the remote for the first time was the solidness of it. It feels very well crafted, with a nice weight to it that I wasn't expecting for such a small device. It's not heavy by any means, but it's perfectly weighted (even moreso with the batteries inserted) and doesn't feel like it will fly out of your hand while using it.

Immediately after noting the weight and construction quality, I was struck by the general feel of the materials. The entire remote has a soft rubbery feel to it, adding to the overall feel that this device isn't going anywhere once you've got it in your hand. This coating does have a tendancy to attract dust, mostly on the underside of the device.

Installing the batteries requires you to slide the entire back panel of the device down. There is no door, or clip to be seen, which is nice because it does not interfere with the design aesthetic.

The design is simple and elegant (there are those words again), with a nice curved back that feels very comfortable in the hand, and the button placement is well thought out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good build quality
Good build quality. Only improvement would be the use of RF or Bluetooth instead of IR. You have to aim directly at the Kinect in order for it to work.
