Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I use my Xbox to watch a lot of movies and shows, and whenever a streaming service asks the inevitable "are you still watching?" I don't always feel like turning on my regular controller just to press A. That's why I love this gaming media remote! It's small, cute, and useful! Great to have with my new Xbox!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy Set Up If you use a Playstation 4 and don't like using the game controller all the time to watch movies or turn up the volume on your television, this remote comes in handy. It is easy to set up just by connecting online and it then does the work for you, which is nice to have. I have always hated setting up universal remotes because you have to enter codes. That isn't necessary with this. I can now just grab the remote and watch one of our dvds and adjust the volume without having to find the game controller. It is definitely a time saver. It does need two AAA batteries which do not come with it. All in all, I would recommend for those who like the easy way to use the PS4 features.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice but, Nice feeling remote. Feels nice in your hands. I like how with movement the buttons light up. Here’s the issue. The volume button doesn’t work. It has been paired, unpaired and paired again and the volume button still doesn’t work. I’m seeing people on the internet having the same issue. Some think that after an update the volume button stopped working. I’m not sure and the resources to find a solution are few. Microsoft and PDP need to fix this or remove it from their store. I didn’t even want this remote. I wanted the new one designed for the series X but it seems to never be in stock. Microsoft why list stuff on your website if it doesn’t work or you can’t keep it in stock? I thought you were here to sell products. Not just display them. It’s frustrating enough it took forever to get a series X and I’m sure others can’t even find one. Fix your production issues. And the manual is a joke. PDP website gives you program codes for different manufacturers tv’s. But has no walkthrough how to program those codes on their remote. Or I couldn’t find the literature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great device which makes streaming a whole easier! I love this remote. It's so easy to use and, since we use the XBox for streaming, it makes the process a lot easier. Great for less tech savvy individuals (or the aging community) so they don't have to learn to use an XBox controller. Soft rubber makes it non-slip and quite comfy in the hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great remote I love this remote, we watch alot of streaming services and are always having dead controllers because I fall asleep and forget to charge them while watching TV. Now with the remote I dont have to worry about that. It is incredibly easy to use has all the buttons your controller has and more. It connects to the TV volume so I don't have to use 2 remotes. All the buttons are a light touch no wearing of the buttons. It is very light weight and is the perfect size. I highly recommend the PDP Gaming Media Remote.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this remote I saw this on clearance at a local place. I liked the idea of having a remote for Netflix/Plex/Prime Video that didn't require me to burn batteries constantly turning a controller back on to pause and stuff. I'm SO glad I bought this. I love this remote. It looks great and works great. I can even easily use it back and forth on both my xboxes because it's just IR and not paired to a single xbox.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works great but needs some tweaks Received this for free through TryItSampling. After a minor hiccup and a Google Search to find out why the remote wouldn't connect (the included instructions don't tell you to press the share and PS buttons to trigger Bluetooth broadcasting) everything went smoothly. Connected to PS4 and TV easily. We did encounter a few design based issues. There is really no tactile difference between directional and Sony interaction buttons, this could be solved by making the dpad 4 separate buttons. The biggest design flaw in our estimation is the fact the device is not back-lit... A black remote,that isn't back-lit, in a dark bedroom is not user friendly. We would definitely consider purchasing this if those few things were corrected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really convenient! I got the PDP Gaming Media Remote to use with my Xbox One S and it works great! I didn't have to program anything, just put the batteries in it and start using it. I have my soundbar plugged into my Xbox, so the remote even works with the soundbar! I love that it lights up when you pick it up, and it works with everything on Xbox including Netflix, YouTube, and everything else. This is so much more convenient than having to keep turning on the Xbox controller to adjust the volume or skip ads. I love it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but not as good as the PS3 remote The volume punch through function for an amplifier doesn't work properly when controlling the PS4. Every time you want to change the volume, you have to hit it rapidly a few times to get it to start working. PDP is aware of the defect, and, from what I heard, has no solution, even though this is apparently a known defect. It's still worth getting the remote. I wouldn't have gotten a PS4 if not for PDP making this remote.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for those that use their console as a TV This should be the official remote for Xbox one. It has the same feel as the official one with additional functionality. The best part is, it does not need direct line of sight to work! My fiancé actually just had carpal tunnel surgery and this was PERFECT for assisting him in using our XBOX as a TV for the time being. The controls are easy to learn and use, and set up was super easy, just plug some batteries in and go! There was absolutely no setup involved aside from placing the batteries inside it. I have read some reviews complaining that they had troubles with the remote's infrared getting to the console. Personally, this remote is working better than my TV remote. It may also help that my Xbox is on an open shelf of the TV stand with no interference such as cabinet doors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I have seen all videos and others trying to hook up to PS4 and TV on YouTube and so on well I was getting upset as well but I looked it up on the website of the controller and the first code I used work so it’s working with my PS4 and TV so stop and think before you start recording

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cause of much sadness Had one of these for almost 2 years and all over sudden it would only work for one button push and disconnect. Replaced the batteries but that didn’t help. Had such good luck with it for so long decided to buy another one. Worked great for 2 weeks and then started doing the same thing, completely heartbroken.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very convenient (especially for youtube) I use it a lot, since many months. I had the same problem as in "Cause of much sadness" but unpairing it and re-pairing it solved the problem. See the PDP support : "Unpairing / Removing Old Remotes – Important information before using the Universal Media Remote for PS4" https://support.pdp.com/hc/en-us/articles/115011754728-Unpairing-Removing-Old-Remotes-Important-information-before-using-the-Universal-Media-Remote-for-PS4

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for Xbox Series X It does not work with Xbox Series X most of the time. You keep pressing and nothing happens until you just use the game controller. I will have to try other remotes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice size and overall design I have the original media remote and didn't use most of the available buttons so this new one seemed like more my speed. It's more comfortable due to the smaller form factor and the de cluttering of the buttons. But 2 buttons that have been omitted that are still needed, skip forward and back (LB and RB). If a revised remote brings them back then it would be perfect...but until then, just get the original media remote.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Seriously why even make a remote if it doesn’t work. Stop selling this garbage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy! The PDP cloud works exactly how it says it does. Connects in seconds, easy to use, and very user friendly. In navigating menus it works perfectly, no delay on inputs, and is a nice addition to your PlayStation devices. When watching shows or video playbacks, every button works with no delay and the same can be said with music apps. If you install the pdp cloud remote app it can work with your tv as well. It can change the volume, the input, and even power on or off the tv. Overall, great product. Does exactly what you need a remote to do

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! We absolutely love the PDP Gaming Media remote for our son to use with his Xbox! This product is great because you can use the same remote for basically every feature including Volume, normal tv and the gaming system! It is well made and also helps my son stay organized and not have too many remotes so we don't lose any of forget to turn off the TV or gaming system because of this remote! It makes things so much easier! I highly recommend this product for the gamers out there!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid but two cons Good remote but with two cons. There is no dedicated next button, so you’re forced to fast forward through things like songs or videos instead of just advancing to the next one in a playlist. The second is it seems to be a battery hog. Batteries only lasted two weeks and I’m not using cheap batteries either. Otherwise solid in build quality and value for sure.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a step forward The remote feels cheaper than the Xbox One version. The previous Xbox logo button is now just a sticker that comes off on the new button and the remote’s backlight is less sensitive so you will fins yourself shaking the remote in the dark to see what you are doing. Fairly disappointing product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tricky So I really wanted to like this remote but it has disappointed me. I don’t just use my Xbox for games I also use it as my DVD player. I found this remote I thought that it would solve all my problems as I don’t like using the controller for movies. My husband likes to use an app with his phone which is okay but I like a good ole fashioned remote. Unfortunately this thing has been a pain to set up. I had to have my husband help and he couldn’t do it either. Maybe you’ll have better luck with yours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features! I got this pdp gaming remote son to go with his xbox one. He absolutely loves it! He likes how he can go back and fourth with the remote to switch his stuff around. Definitely a great gift to get! I totally recommend this for everyone who owns a xbox!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good This remote sucks. The backlight doesn't stay lit long enough, the buttons feel awkward, and the remote just isn't responsive. Often times I'll have to click a button several times for it to register. I won't be buying any more products from PDP.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor layout for a media remote The remote works, but not much thought was put into the button layout. The back button is too far from the directional and select button to use comfortably. The remote is also very narrow and the directional buttons are stiff and difficult to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I got this media remote for my son to use on his xbox. It makes it so much easier to control the volume and when he is watching movies.. It works on the netflix app and others. Its way better then using the gaming controller

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product!! I received the Cloud Remote for PS4 from Try It and I have to say, it is very awesome and convenient. The remote itself has a great look. It connected to my PS4 with ease and the response is quick and smooth! It is very easy to use. It comes in handy when I’m not playing games and I’m just navigating through apps, especially when using streaming services like Netflix and Hulu. I believe anyone who has a PS4 should really consider purchasing this remote! Definitely a game changer!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Volume not working Works well except can’t control volume or tv on/off
Date published: 2020-11-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Volume control not fast enough The control works great but the volume buttons take a while for the Xbox to acknowledge. After 3 or 4 clicks then the Xbox turns up/down the volume

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it yeah it's pretty cool I guess its fun to use and works perfectly fine even though I lose remotes a lot and have a Samsung tv but its pretty good

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect TV, and movie remote After you learn the buttons it makes for a perfect remote for tv, and movie watching. I highly recommend this remote.
