Would buy again.
I also found the ergonomics of trying to control the remote single-handedly -- like any other remote -- to be more tiring and difficult. I don't know how this but it could just be that there's more pressure required on these buttons. With a curled thumb this can be hard.
Lastly, this isn't a significant improvement over the game controller in terms of functionality. The buttons are generic functions and do not include the keys for Blu-Ray or DVD. So instead you have to guess what a function button will do, try to pull up a media button menu on the screen, cursor over to the button, then select it. This is laborious and unintuitive. So if you are one of those who needs a quick-responding remote, then this will test your patience.
I have IR blasters connected to my Xbox so I can control my TV and Bell receiver all frome the Xbox. In my opinion, this remote beats the Logitech Harmony simply because of how simplistic the layout is. Plus, it uses standard AAA batteries.
Allows me to control Netflix, YouTube, iPlayer, Hulu, Sling and TV easily and quickly.
My Xbox One is fed in through my surround sound receiver and the volume and mute buttons work with no issue, which is great.
This remote is perfect. It's responsive, always awake and has really improved my ability to use Netflix or watch a DVD. Even navigating the dashboard is a breeze - I prefer it over the controller if I'm browsing the store or any menus. I also like that it lights up when you touch it and it even came with a pair of batteries, which is an added bonus.
Con: I don't have massive hands, but even I found my hands cramping while trying to thumb some buttons - so much so that I had to switch the remote to my left hand (I'm right-handed) in order to hit the most-used buttons.
Neutral: The back of the remote is covered in a silky smooth rubber that feels nice in your hands, but will make the remote slide off of just about anything.
The only down-side is that I seem to be having range-problems. The signal has a hard time penetrating my coffee table. This wouldn't be a complaint at all for a regular remote. I suppose it's just a but disappointing because I expected it to operate much as the controllers do. However, I can see why it wouldn't---the battery life would be dismal.

Well just like the rest of the Xbox one, it is too big but it's still the best functionality wise. Tried Logitech harmony products and this is easier.Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
