It's been a while since my previous review. I don't have the original packaging, and it's probably too late to return. As it turns out, the Dr. Who Wii remote is only fun while it lasts. It is still a great prop/novelty for the reasons I've listed below. Now the battery won't hold more than half a days charge--and that is primarily with television usage. The battery probably drains instantly if you actually try to play a game.
While this is a faithful replica, it is not a wii remote. It is a sonic screwdriver with buttons that don't do anything and a usb port that won't charge. I would no longer recommend this item.
As an adult and a collector of many geeky things I found myself having to pick this up for my wife for her birthday (read: best birthday present ever). These days we use our wii mostly for online TV, and for our purposes this remote works as well as any other.
This is a great item, with some caveats. First, the sonic screwdriver looks beautiful. It is a great reproduction of the 11th Dr.'s trusty door opener. The size is about perfect for the Dr.'s screwdriver, and it is not very heavy--both making it particularly comfortable to hold. My wife has mentioned a preference for it because of the form factor. It tracks well on the screen, and the buttons and accelerometers all work as well as the standard wii-motes.
The less good:
While it is lighter than a standard wii-mote it also feels like it may be less durable. The battery also lasts nowhere near as long as it probably should. We have non-OEM rechargeable in our other remotes, and we've used them quite a bit. While the the batteries in our normal remotes last for over a week with our normal usage patterns, the screwdriver remote only lasts a few days before it needs a charge (and it seems less likely to remind us when it gets low). It comes with a USB charger that plugs into the bottom, and the batteries don't appear to be replaceable. I probably wouldn't recommend for children that are rough with their toys or anyone who is likely to use it for regular video-gaming. However, for the low price this remote could make a cool piece to show off when company comes over.
I love the geek-factor of this item, so I thought that it was worth five stars of fun. I took off a star in the overall rating because of the battery issues. Either way I'm pretty happy with the purchase.
If they had both worked the day I got them, I would rate 5 stars.
We've had this for 5 months now and have nothing but rave reviews for it.
It charges strictly through the (included) USB cable...I love that there are no batteries required, what a relief, not having to think about that added cost.
Using this remote is so much easier than the traditional Wii remote; the design is actually made to fit into your hand comfortably and is even cushioned around the area right below where the "home" button is. Also, since there are no batteries inside, it is considerably lighter and easier to use.
We've had no issues (as others have reported) with charging the device, it illuminates red during charging and turns off when completed. We only charge ours once every 2 weeks maybe, it really lasts quite a while.
We have had so many comments on it and everyone asks where they can get one as well.
I only wish maybe this same company had other design options as well...so we could each get one to more match our personality.
Overall...Completely satisfied & will be purchasing additional remote's!
