I was looking for a remote to make it easier for everyone in the house to navigate discs and streaming on the Xbox Series X, since using the controller for that can be daunting and fidgety for non-gamers. This remote is familiar enough that anyone should be able to figure it out so I don't regret the purchase per se.
However, there's definitely room for improvement.
It seems to need line of sight. Fair enough, but still a minor inconvenience, rejigging the room.
The bigger problem is that I use a passcode to log in to my console but the controller doesn't seem to have any buttons that map onto the shoulder or trigger buttons, so I either need to choose a code that avoids the numbers representing those buttons or use my controller anyway.
So this remote will certainly do for now but I'll be on the look out for something better.
So in terms of size and layout, this is an improvement from the original PDP remote but in almost every other regard, it’s just worse.
By far, the biggest problem is the back cover. It’s uncomfortably loose. It clips off far too easily. It slides around during normal use. The original also had a similar issue and I was really hoping they’d finally fixed it, considering how many complaints there were about the problem but, oddly, they seem to have gone the opposite way and made it even less secure.
I also really miss the lack of dedicated Playback buttons but, particularly, it’s the lack of a “Stop” button that bugs me most. To be fair though, that might just be a personal preference for me specifically. For instance, there’s no way to actually stop playback on services that allow you to bring up the menu while it continues playing on the background, like YouTube TV. The only way to outright stop playback is to exit the application altogether.
As a positive, the new remote is definitely not as sensitive to movement as the old one so I expect the battery life will be greatly improved. However, I won’t get the chance to find out because this device is being sent back. The battery cover issue is a deal-breaker for me.
One major problem with remote gives it 3 stars. The battery cover which is the entire bottom of the remote opens with a loose fit top to bottom. Because your grip on remote naturally pulls on the bottom, I am continually opening the battery cover when using the remote. Nearly every time. The back should slide in the opposite direction or have a better fit, I think. The other minor issue is the navigation pad buttons are a bit mushy and hard to press. The saving grace is that I was able to use this remote to program my universal remote, which is my preferred remote.
Like the title implies, this is the best XS Media remote available from a current selection of not-great offerings.
It’s not the build quality of name-brand TV or AIO remotes, let alone the OEM XBOX controller.
Only $20, but feels like a $6 remote. Functionality is there although there is no apparent Shoulder equivalent buttons so things like sorting within the XBOX store and navigation in some Xbox apps are not possible.
I give it 3 stars because 80% of the functionality is there and it synced up immediately to my X and TV out of the box, just not made for 10K+ presses of the buttons and lacks Xbox RT/LT/RB/LB/R3/L3 equivalents and can be a waving pointing frustrating experience to use.
Get it for the dedicated Volume media buttons, just don’t expect it to last or react as snappy as a regular Controller.
Simple and easy to use. Very easy to pair but this remote will not power down or power on the T.V. in sync with my xbox. Even with the settings adjusted on the xbox. It states that it will but it will only control the volume, the mute and the channel on my Roku TV. Very disappointing. The navigation wheel is so depressed in the remote. I feel like I have to jam my fingers into it for the direction. The xbox home button looks to be a glued sticker on a button. The back of the remote is so slippery, I feel like I can't get a good grip on it.. There is a delay from the remote buttons unless you directly point the remote at the xbox. I was hoping for a solid purchase from the reviews but little did I realize untill I held it. Utilizing the xbox game controller give you a better response but who wants to lug the controller around on the couch, when your watching movies and T.V. I gave it 3 stars for the simple nature of it but I am returning it due to the many faults and flaws it has. The purpose of the purchase was to use one remote for everything. Unfortunately I am back to step one with Utilizing two remotes again.
I've used the official xbox one media remote for the past 6 or 7 years. When I got my series X I wanted a nice new clean remote to replace it. It's been so reliable I had no idea it was discontinued a while ago. I decided to give this one a go.
While I do find my old remote to be superior, I think any new xbox media remote users will find this one OK, provided they can deal with the dumbfounding placement of the back button. If I hold the remote just the right way, I can reach both the navigation buttons and the back button without moving the remote in my hand, but this shouldn't be necessary. The placement of the back button cost this remote a full star all by itself.
The build quality is OK. It doesn't scream quality, but it's good enough. It does feel light to me, but that could be because I'm used to the heftier feel of my old remote. A little extra weight would have definitely made this remote feel a bit more premium. Will it last 6-7 years and still work fine like my original remote? I'm very skeptical it can pull that off. Will it fall apart in the next 6 months? That is also doubtful.
I've had no issues with the battery cover. It's solidly attached.
The light does seem to turn off rather quickly. But this is more of an annoyance than any real impediment in functionality. This is a small remote. You don't need a lot of time to orient your hand on the remote.
The strength of the IR beam seems to be sufficient. I tried pointing the remote at a few sensible angles towards the ceiling and the wall behind me, and it worked fine.
In summary, I docked it one star because of its general averageness and one star due to the placement of the back button. The back button will always annoy me, but it's still better than using a controller for streaming media. And as my old remote still works fine, I'll likely be keeping this one in a drawer as a back up.
One other thing to note about this remote to new xbox remote users: the only thing that makes this an xbox series X/S remote is its lack of buttons that are specific to the xbox one OneGuide functionality. (There's no OneGuide on series X/S) It's basically just branding. Any xbox one remote will work fine, with or without all the extra buttons.
