Good remote if you need Xbox buttons

 

If you are in the market for a real Xbox 360 remote, then this is the best I have seen. The differences between a "real" Xbox 360 remote, and a normal universal remote, is that the Xbox remote has the dedicated A, B, X, Y and "Xbox" buttons on it. A...

nice hand feel, pre-set to work with xbox, attractive glossy finish

poor range, clicky buttons, small buttons, limited use for other devices

Much better DVD controls, excellent purchase

 

This gives much better control over the DVD playback and can easily be programmed to your TV so that you can control both with the one remote. You do need to point the remote at the Xbox for it to pick up your commands but it is nowhere near as bad as...
