Does the job

 

Was a little hesitant when i saw that the seller was not NEWEGG, but it came in fine from over seas. Brand new. No dents on the package (not that it matters). I have the XBOX mainly to just stream my kid's movies from my computer. A lot easier than...

Run Away!! Run Away!!!

 

If you are trying to lose weight, this is the remote for you! You will gain muscle tone in your arms from the rigorous and strenuous repeated attempts waving the remote at the Xbox trying to get the darn thing to work. Eventually you will get up with...

none really the inexpensive price is not worth the hassle

There is such a small sweet-spot for the remote to connect to the XBOX it's almost worth just getting up and finding a controller. Plus there is no green button for Windows Media Center on this model

Works, but not complete

 

Overall the remote works, but by no means replaces the old (no longer available) white media remote.

It controls the xbox and works with most feature in Windows Media Center.

The remote is missing many buttons that are required for use with windows media center. There isn't even a stop button on the remote. The remote is also missing the "start" button (brings up the main menu in windows media center) as well as the tray...

Not Great

 

This remote is OK. It mostly gets the job done but with a few problems. The first problem is the lack of a media center button (Green Button) for automatically starting the media center extender on the Xbox. I'm using the xbox for watching live TV off...

Nice Look and Feel

Doesn't have all the buttons necessary when using the Xbox as a media extender ; Weak or narrow transmitter beam

Does the job

 

Way way WAY too many complaints on this very simple device. No stop button only somewhat sucks, but def not worthy to torpedo the rating solely because of it. The only valid complaint would be that it doesn't change TV channels, which I haven't run...

It does what it's meant to do... controls the XBOX without having to turn on a controller. I've had it for a month and the range seems fine. I spend 2 years using one of my controllers to watch movies and such, so this thing is a VERY welcome change!...

If there is an ergonomics department at Microsoft, they were clearly not consulted in the making of this device. It is almost the exact same shape right side up as it is up side down, so it's almost impossible to tell without looking, which gets...
