    Before I say anything else I want to say. I waited WAY too long to get a remote for the Xbox One. If you recently got an Xbox One as a gift for someone or for yourself. Buy a remote! especially if you didn't get a play and charge kit, you will be a lot happier overall. It will be worth it later. Quick non-wordy breakdown: Pros: - Easy to use. - Battery saver. - Great for Media (Netflix, blu-ray, youtube, etc..) - Backlit for night time visibility (lights up when moved.) - Comfortable in the hand. - Didn't cost 25 bucks... Cons: - Buttons are very "Firm". - Backlighting only lasts a few seconds - Button arrangement/layout leaves something to be desired. I like the feel of the remote and how brightly it can glow. I also appreciate that it came with a pair of batteries. However, it only stays lit for a few seconds and it dims in like 2-3 seconds leaving you little time to find buttons in the dark if you happen to be looking for a specific button. The top most button "dashboard" button does not light up at all and neither do the A, B, X, and Y buttons. They do have a nice bright paint on them though which is great if you do have light to see them... It's super easy to use. Just point and click once the batteries are in. I like the idea that this remote is an all in one including the normal controller buttons. However, I'd really like it if the 'back' button or the B button were closer to the radial selector. I feel like the Microsoft remote has a better overall layout in this regard. It's a lot more like a normal TV remote in the layout making a bit more intuitive to use. I'd also like to say that the buttons, especially the radial selector are a bit firm. By that I mean the force needed to actually press the button is more than I'd like it to be. Feels like I have to press through the layer of silicone or rubber material in order to press it. In comparison, the Microsoft remote while similar is still much easier to press the buttons on. (Not a huge problem but definitely something I'm not a fan of.) I like how it feels in my hand and the material feels the same overall as the Microsoft Media remote. If I was to break this down into a price basis. You technically get a lot more for the same overall quality and feel as the Microsoft Media remote. However, I do not have my cable hooked up into the Xbox One so I cannot test that portion and I'm not sure how useful the added buttons like the number pad really are. Apparently, I cannot even turn the volume up or down unless this is done. A huge drawback.

    Handy Remote, But Could be Better

    I am NOT a gamer by any means. I can barely figure out how to power on the various game systems around our house, let alone figure out the game controllers, so once I got myself to the point I had finally figured out how to use our PS3 for streaming Netflix, and gotten my own handy little remote so I didn't have to work the controller, I was quite content. My teenage son, however, informed me that he wanted his XBox One to sit where the PS3 was sitting in our living room, and that meant I had to learn how to stream Netflix from the XBox One instead. I TRIED to hold my ground and insist on the PS3 because I had my own handy-dandy remote control for it, and the next thing I know, an order arrives from Best Buy. Turns out the teenager (who has a job and earns his own money) has decided he'll eliminate my little remote control excuse by purchasing me a remote for the XBox One. Sigh. SO . . . I've now learned how to use this remote control. And it is indeed a handy little device. I will say, though, that I do find it harder to use than my PS3 remote. First of all, most of the keys are marked, but for things like turning on closed captioning, or other menu options, this remote is not clear at all, and I usually manage to disconnect my system from the TV at least once whilst trying to figure out how to activate the menu. Not the end of the world. I can usually figure out how to get my movie started again. But I think the buttons really could be marked better so that at least the button that disconnects everything has a big old red "X" on it or something! Also, these buttons have a very soft feel. I have to push them very hard before they actually activate anything. Sometimes I just feel like I'm going to break something before whatever button I'm pushing will actually activate. So I'm hoping this doesn't mean I'll have issues with this in a few months, but for now it's working OK. All in all, if I must use the XBox One for streaming, I'd much rather be using this remote control than trying to figure out that game controller, so I'm glad it was an option! I'm sure I'll eventually learn which buttons NOT to push, and hopefully this will serve me well for years to come!

    This remote is a bust. The volume never works which is one of the main reasons for purchasing. How do you sell a remote control that doesn’t even control volume on your tv?? All functions work otherwise. A slight learning curve on what buttons control what. The Arrows control things that I feel the arrows shouldn’t control. Very counterintuitive. The batteries die quickly as well considering it lights up every time you move it or you move the table/couch it is sitting on. This is a 3rd party remote meaning Xbox doesn’t make this remote directly. I have yet to find good quality 3rd party products and this is definitely in that category. Thumbs Down again. I tried to reprogram the remote several times and volume still doesn’t work. I called support from Xbox and after trouble shooting the volume worked. Then 5 minutes later didn’t work again. I am giving this remote a single star because it works on everything else but the volume which is a pretty major quality when you are trying to replace your controller and looking to control tv and all other functions with one remote. Don’t know when Xbox will come out with a version of their own so until then I will return this remote and use my controller to control the Xbox and all it’s new functions. :(

    Volume doesn't work, otherwise good

    Posted

    Whole reason I got this remote was so that I only need one remote to control my tv, cable box, and Xbox. It advertises that the remote controls volume on your TV and yet the volume buttons don't do anything. (I know I have the IR cords hooked up correct because my Xbox remote app on my iPhone can control my tv volume through the Xbox). Other than that, works fine. Has an XBOX button on the top that functions exactly like the button on a normal controller. Pressing it turns on your XBOX. One Guide button takes you directly to tv listings , tap twice to go to full screen tv. The buttons light up when it moves, (except for X, A, B, Y) which is helpful in the dark. Play/pause etc. buttons control Netflix and such just fine. Comfortable to hold, especially compared to the small Xbox brand remote. The remote would be great, but I can't get over the fact that the volume buttons don't work, which is why I can't recommend it.

    Very nice remote

    This is a very nice remote for the Xbox One S. I picked this one over the standard remote that Microsoft sells because I preferred the larger size. I liked how the buttons light up when you move it so you can see them in the dark and I like how you can turn your Xbox on/off with the remote. This remote is better than using the game pad for watching movies and shows because you have to wake up the game pad (if you haven't used it for awhile) to switch shows and stuff. I've seen other reviewers mentioned that controlling the TV volume doesn't work. It is stated on the box that you need to connect an infrared extender to the Xbox in order for this to work. The standard Xbox remote says the same thing. I think this is a Bluetooth remote so the remote would send the Bluetooth signal to the Xbox to raise the volume and (if you have an infrared extender connected to the Xbox), the Xbox would then relay that signal (through infrared) to the TV. I haven't actually tried it but I'm pretty sure that's how it's supposed to work. I dinged the remote 1 star because the directional pad is flat and not raised so it's hard to know where your fingers are on the remote when trying to use the pad to select things. Other than this flaw, it's been perfect for my uses.

    Great Remote

    Remote works great. I’ve had it work up to 30ft. away without any issues. A few issues: You have to point it in very close proximity in the direction of the XBox. It will not work if you happen to just pick it up and try to use it without pointing it at the XBox. It is infrared and not radio like the controller. Another issue I have found is the X,Y,B,A buttons dont always seem to work like they would on the XBox controller. The remote defaults to other buttons sometimes. I have not figured out if this remote is programmable since the instructions are very limited to non-existant. Last, dont drop the remote. They are not super durable. Don’t mis-interpret this, they are durable, but due to little kids and hard tile floors, they will over time become unusable when they end up on the floor alot. Mine lasted for over 2 yrs. which seems to be the norm for most all products now. Other than that it works great.

    Misleading description

    I bought this mainly so i could plug my headset in and watch tv with the tv muted, and only listen through my headset (Some Roku tvs have this feature). But it seems there is a serious mistake on the description. If you want a basic remote like the microsoft brand then this is fine I guess. This is what the description says but half of it isn't true: Easily control your Xbox One system. Works with Blu-ray and streaming media applications-mostly true The 3.5mm headset jack supports game and chat audio, so gamers can easily plug in and play-FALSE. The audio control button located on the front of the controller adds a hassle-free way to adjust game and chat audio levels without interrupting gameplay-FALSE Non-slip grips provide a comfortable grip for long hours of play Motion activated backlit buttons-True Vibration feedback and impulse triggers helps to keep you alert-FALSE Compatible with Xbox One gaming console and PC-

    It's an IR remote it needs line of sight

    No where on the packaging does it state that it is an IR remote that requires line of sight. In fact on the packaging it states it requires an IR blaster or kinetic in order to control your television. If it requires an IR blaster to communicate with your television it wouldn't be unreasonable to assume that it communicates with the Xbox one with RF like the game controllers do. This was a completely useless purchase for me since all my a/v equipment including my Xbox one is located in a closet in the room behind the wall the televisions are mounted on. Why would I want to look at a stack of electronics when they can be hidden away and controlled remotely. I'm going to have to install an IR extender system that costs more then this remote just to control my Xbox media since all my other gear operates on RF or via an app. I understand the Xbox app will control my media, but it is the absolute worse remote control app. I think they did this to force people to buy the official Xbox media remote which is about 40% more than this one...
