  • Working As Intended

    My personal experience has been excellent. Bought this remote to make usage easier for my non-tech family (seeing as the PS5 has replaced the majority of our media devices). The device was simple enough to connect - navigate to settings > media remote > pair, and then hit the PS5 button. The system was connected to the TV so it asked me if I wanted to auto sync some universal features (volume control, mute, etc) so I said yes and bing-bang-boom it was an all in one remote right there. Connection is strong, navigation is easy, my retirement aged dad gets to watch netflix and amazon prime video with ease. Worth.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Seems Useless, yet worth it.

    In the past, I hated using the base controller to watch movies because I wasn’t used to what controls what, then I had to figure it out, look at the instructions, forget all of that. Why not go for a simplified way for accessing media? Using the powerful media remote.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Ridiculous
    Reviewed by Pacoup - December 5, 2020

    This is an egregiously low quality product by Sony that is completely out of place with the PS5. Quite possibly the worst $40 I have ever spent. The color scheme is wrong. The front face of the device is a weird beige, so it doesn't match the color of the PS5 and its DualSense controller. The build quality is an absolute joke. The battery cover doesn't even fit properly and leaves a weird gap in the front. The eject button for the battery cover is nigh unusable. The plastic has marks from bad molding. The buttons are too far apart and feel like a cheap knockoff product. The remote also sits awkwardly in the hand. It's definitely uncomfortable to use. And to top it all off, the remote is also very slow, often skipping presses in the PlayStation UI and mashing several of them in a row after a delay. It's so bad, you might wonder whether your PS5 is lagging. All in all, this makes anything you do with the remote, from watching YouTube to browsing Netflix and Disney+ an unpleasant experience. Skip this and just use the DualSense.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
