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.Read more ›
Overall, this is a great remote and I highly recommend it.
Not 3 days after purchasing the remote, I started experiencing a problem with the Volume buttons not working properly, which apparently may be a widespread problem and not just an isolated bug. The volume button does not always register when pressed. I have to repeatedly press the power button and it may be detected maybe only every other push. Also If I just hold down the volume button, It's only adjust the volume up or down a little, then a pause, then a little more, then a pause, then a little more. Very annoying little bug if your relying on this remote for volume control. I've dropped from 5 stars to 4 stars. I still really like the remote but I do expect the volume to work normally and will have to contact microsoft about this issue. Maybe a bigger drop in stars is incoming if I don't resolve this problem.

The remote is about half the height of the 360 media remote. Very straight forward and easy to use. Has a soft touch feel that feels really good. The downside of the soft touch material is that it is a bit of a lint magnet. Remote picked up lint just from the packaging it came in and I had to wipe it clean first thing.
I'm still quite happy with the soft touch and think it will be great in the long run. The remote also has a sensor that turns on the backlighting when you pick it up without you having to do anything. The back light then very gracefully fades after about 5-7 seconds when the remote is placed down again. Very slick and the design akin to something Apple might do. Very good on Microsoft here.
To turn on Xbox you long press the Xbox logo button on the remote.
This is so much better than using the Xbox One controller as your remote control. It's just less work.Read more ›

The Xbox One Kinect can operate as a universal remote, so why this doesn't have numeric and DVR buttons is beyond me. Otherwise works fine.Published 4 hours ago by Carolyn Gordon

Requires Kinect to control volume. The remote literally has an IR blaster and yet it can't be programmed to throw the codes for volume and power for your TV.Published 6 days ago by wsander2
