    I have no idea why there are some bad reviews of this case. I can only assume they purchased it for the wrong remote. I have a 4th generation Apple TV and the remote's design leaves lots to be desired. It''s purely a rectangular shape so it's almost impossible to determine which end is up without looking at it. Also, the remote is uber sensitive to touch, which produces unintended activations while fiddling with it to get the orientation correct. Because of these issues, one is compelled to handle the remote with a soft touch which increases the likelihood of it being dropped, especially given its smooth surface. This case rectifies most of the remote's shortcomings. The strap at the bottom makes correct orientation super easy. Also, the strap helps hold the remote securely, especially when using it to play games. The soft texture makes for a secure grip and the case fits very securely on the remote. Lastly, all functions and ports are fully accessible. I highly recommend this case.

    Great Case for the Price

    This case includes a wrist strap, and is cheaper than the Apple Remote Loop by itself. Unlike the wrist strap on this case, the Apple Remote Loop attaches to the Lightning Connector on the bottom of the remote, meaning you need to remove it whenever you need to charge the remote. The wrist strap on the case is removable if you don't want to use it. The remote fits the case snugly, and there are cutouts for the Lightning Connector, the IR Sensor, and Both Microphones. The case doesn't hinder use of the remote in any way, and there is no need to remove the case for any function. The ridges on the back also make the remote easier to grip than the flat, smooth back of the remote itself. Overall, I would definitely recommend this case for anyone with the new Apple TV

    Does the job of keeping my remote from sliding off the arm of the couch. On the down side when initially purchased it was a little too snug. It impeded the ability to actually press the touch pad because it was held down perpetually. After manually stretching it out a bit it works fine. I wish it were available in more visible colors and a bit larger honestly. The apple remote is too small and easy to lose. Overall it does the job after a little tweaking, but still leaves something to be desired.

    If you have Apple TV you know how small and slippery the remote is. It really is very hard to use due to its size. The little cover makes the remote much easier to hang onto and keeps it from constantly slipping into the couch cushions. One flaw in design is that the cover fits a little too tightly and makes the touch pad operate a little strangely. My cure for that is to just peel the cover back at the top so that it keeps the touch pad more loose, and will operate as intended. The cover really is a must have and totally worth the cost.

    Not for older remotes!

    I didn't realize when I purchased this cover that the newer generations of AppleTV have a different remote. This remote cover will be too large for older generation remotes. However, if you do have a newer AppleTV remote, this product will offer protection for your remote with a good look. It's worth mentioning that this product doesn't completely cover the remote but is more of a rubber backing. Definitely worth buying if you're rough on your remote(s).

    I was so proud and happy for getting myself a 4th Gen Apple TV. As soon as I hooked it up I feared that I'd do something to damage the remote in a short period of time. Fortunately I found this product while searching for something unrelated and thought that the insurance of having this protection versus not having it and having to buy a new remote. Definite no-brainer for me. I haven't had an instance of dropping the remote, but I did do some drop tests. Go figure I'll bet you that had I not had this one I'd have broken the Apple TV remote by now.

    Bad Remote Cover

    Though the cover feels great and offers protection, there's one HUGE caveat. I would never recommend it or use it due to that. The top of the Apple remote is a clickable button. When you have the cover on the top, it's such a tight feet, the button no longer "clicks." It works, but you don't feel the click, and often times, you don't even know if you properly clicked it or not. Thus making the cover completely useless. Protection is great, but if it makes the remote act differently, then it's pointless. I've since kept the remote naked, because it works best that way.

    Serves its purpose

    The Apple TV remote itself is very thin and kind of slippery, very easy to lose track of. This case helps alleviate that issue dramatically. If you don't get the case on just right, the trackpad on the remote is partially pressed down by the case and the trackpad doesn't have the same "clickiness" (hard to tell if you pressed it or not). This can be fixed but it takes some time. Also, pressing the sides of the trackpad to do the 10 second jumps is difficult as the case wraps around the top of the remote.
