GREAT Remote, Universal Remote? Not so much,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Xbox 360 Universal Media Remote (Video Game)
ill start this review by saying, this remote is great, the quality and solidity of the remote feels good, the numbers are backlit green which is a huge plus and it works with my xbox!
i see some of these negative reviews out there of people being lazy. because the instructions don't come with TV codes, but if you have an xbox obviously you know how to work a computer, and xbox has a lot of tv codes on their website albeit not all. I have an insignia TV and xbox doesn't have any codes for the remote, so i did a quick google search and found out the right code.
All in all the remote is great, you can do everything you want faster without having to use the controller which is annoying. My remote works from across the room no issues there as some have reported.
one complaint i had about this whole experience from buying from amazon, was that the remote is the size of a bottle of a small bottle of shampoo, and they sent it in a box the size of 2 xbox's. pointless? wasteful? yes.
I recommend that you DO buy this remote if:
1) You want to stop using the controller for movies, netflix, browsing etc
2) You would like to get rid of your tv's OEM remote and control your xbox at the same time
i recommend that you DON'T buy this remote if:
1) you are expecting a remote that can control all of your electronic equipment (DVR, Cable Box, TIVO, surround sound system)
