    I bought the Apple TV Gen. 4 while already having the Apple 2nd. Gen. due to Apps availability between the two. The remote that comes w/the Apple TV Gen.4 is pretty much the same as all previous ones except 1 difference. This one does not require batteries. You charge it with a Lightning cable. I like this function due to the fact, I have the Apple TV box and the remote control cradle mounted to the back of my tv.

    Poorly Designed

    Great idea. Useful to help keep track of the remote. Unfortunately the case gets in the way of the function of the remote when an application requires use of the edge of the remote. For example when using YouTube TV the remote is used for fast forwarding. The case gets in the way and you can't fast forward. I ended up cutting off the top half of the case.

    I needed this after the last remote was dropped and stepped on one too many times. My only complaints are the wrist strap and the amount of overlap on the edges of the touch pad. I don’t use the strap and would prefer to not have the hole. The overlap is slightly too large to make jumping forward and backward and skipping ads on YouTube easy.

    I had this remote cover with my Apple TV 4K 64GB in an offer. It work good. The string helps to avoid slipping remote from hand when playing game on apple TV using it and the remote doesn’t feel cold & slippery after having this cover otherwise the remote becomes too cold and slippery sometimes as well. So it does what it is supposed to do.

    Worthwhile addition to Apple TV

    Great protection for the Apple TV remote. Without it the remote would be incredibly light and difficult to pick up from a flat surface. The wrist strap is easily removed if you don't find it useful. Would have been worth the normal price, but was able to get it essentially free as part of a bundle with Apple TV at end of November

    I always thought that my apple remote was a little slippery. So when I saw this I decide to purchase it. Once I got it home slap it on the remote and what do you know, it takes some use to getting to. Because it over laps the touch part of the remote which was making it hard to do certain gestures. But I finally got it and it's all good now. And it also gives it that bulk that need if you got big hands.

    Inhibits function of the remote

    I wanted this cover to work and I liked the concept, having young children in the house. However, when I placed the cover on the remote I quickly realized that the click feature of the Apple TV 4K remote was actually depressed by the cover, and did not allow proper function of the remote. I promptly returned it the same day.

    Our 2 year old loves to take the remotes to play with and eventually hide them. Eventually he hid the Apple TV remote and it took us about to months to find, which was scratched up pretty good now. Purchased this cover to prevent any future damages. So far so good and even has a wrist strap that helps us hang the remote away from our child! :)

    I can not stress enough how much this little accessory is necessary. Unless you plan on keeping your remote in a glass display case this this holder is the best thing for it. Without the case I’d have a mini heart attack everytime i dropped the remote due to how fragile and breakable it feels but this case helps relieve that anxiety.

    The Apple TV remote has a terrible design idea. It’s slippery and even with the new 4K remote have a raise ring to indicate top and bottom you still have hard times moving it in the palm. This cover add firm grips. The carry-on rope prevents dropping.

    Great protection for the apple tv remote. The touch pad sensitivity is affected by this, but still functions. The remote is slim and this adds grip and protection to it. Worth the investment and it is cheaper at Best Buy then Amazon.

    This is perfect except the snugness of it at first causes the main clicking button to be pressed down slightly which can cause the remote selection to be extra sensitive. I took one star off for this reason, otherwise it’s a great protection case for the remote.

    And I like that I can keep the quarter round my wrist so I don’t lose the remote because it is so small. Also, the cover makes it a little larger. However, the cover also covers the 10- second back and 10-second forward icons. So in order to utilize I have to lift the cover.

    The little gadget has saved us from dropping the remote. It also protects it from scratches when placed on our nightstand. The grip is perfect and gives you more control when using the remotes touch pad. Great purchase, will be getting another for our upstairs system.

    The case really protects the remote, but because the case fits so snug the button to click at the top of the remote is pressed down making it super sensitive while using it. I’m going to take the advice of others that have reviewed this remote and try to stretch it out some so it doesn’t fit as tightly.

    This cover interfered with the remote track pad

    I was unable to use the track pad on my 5th gen Apple Tv 4K remote because this cover was continuously pressing it down. It fits very tightly and it wraps too much around the top which is why it is always pressing down on the track pad and making it unusable. I returned it the next day.

    Fit is a little too tight

    The outer rim of this case is a little too tight fitting around the touch pad and seems to cause issues when trying to click. I own two other cases (different brands) and have zero issues. I'll give it about a month to loosen up as another reviewer suggested, will update later.

    I am an apple product enthusiast and love this item for the new Apple TV Remote; I like how it wraps around my forearm and for ease of use! If i fall asleep while in the middle of a show or movie I at least have the remote attached to my arm! Love it! Definitely recommend to anyone who has the new Apple TV Device and Remote.

    Good quality case for remote

    The Apple remote case seems well constructed and has a good feel during use. The big downside to this case is that it squeezes the remote pad too tightly and keeps it depressed. Stretching out the case corners helped a bit but it tends to move back to its original form.

    For the non-replacement affordable remote, this case covers 100% of the item and if it falls to the floor will bounce and avoid breaks. Only reason why I don’t give it 5 stars is because you won’t be able to feel the trackpad clicks when making a selection. But everything else makes me recommend it
