    Apple TV Remote

    • Written by from Piccadilly

    My only concern with the remote is its compact size. Sadly my remote disappeared in my lounge room and I was unable to find it. Yes I am a dinosaur and perhaps a small hole in it to attach a ring so I can hang it around my neck. This could be for older people such as myself who mislay small items. Otherwise a great product.

    No front row!??

    • Written by from Fayetteville

    Bought a new Imac for $800, dissapointed it didn't come with new remote. Realized my old remote works on the new iMac minus the menu button which apparently apple got rid of? What's the point of losing a perfectly good feature? Hope to see the function restored in a future OS update.

    Too Small

    • Written by from Salem

    It's always getting lost in our couch, it needs to be bigger! It still works great.

    Good build quality too small

    • Written by from Halifax

    Great remote design, it's a pleasure to hold. That being said it's very small and if you lose it you need to have home sharing initiated already or you won't be able to sink another device to it. A replacement is surprisingly cheap and syncing a different remote is easy but a scream function in the remote that could be activated by an inconspicuous button on the apple tv itself would be brilliant.

    Great!

    • Written by from Park Ridge

    Sleek, beautiful and extremely durable.

    I've had this remote for 2 years with no problems and great battery life. I also love the intuitive design.

    Only issue: This all-in-one remote works on multiple Apple products. So, if you're on the computer and using your Apple TV, make sure that the remote is only focused on one of the two, otherwise you're in for a full-blown cacophony.

    Good. But don't stray far from Mac

    • Written by from tampa

    Great device for Apple TV, MacBook Pro when you are close to the device (less 10ft). I do many presentations on Keynote at conferences/ events and usually my Mac is on the podium near me - no problem, but you can't walk the stage. If you walk more than 10ft it doesn't work well at all or doesn't respond at all to forward your slides, animate videos etc...

    If you want to walk the stage as you speak this is not the device to use, if you are stationary or next to the Mac- works great.

    Lastly, battery life is poor.

    I use mine for home Apple TV or to rehearse my presentations. I have another remote for when I am on stage that gives me great coverage +60ft.

    Buttons wore out pretty soon

    • Written by from San Diego

    I bought the Apple TV like a month ago and the buttons on the remote have worn out already.
    I am really disappointed.

    Where did it go?

    • Written by from Kingston Springs

    The remote is great, let get that out there. It came with our Apple TV. Works fine, does everything we need it to, but a lot of times we lose it. We have always found it, but have had to use our iPad's "Remote" app from Apple in the meantime. But it looks so cool! So we give it four stars, 1 for cool, -1 for losing it all the time, 3 for working.

    TOO SMALL!

    • Written by from Prattville

    Please, I'm begging, make it bigger next time or design an attachment to make it bigger. Or, how about a tracking device? I lose this at least once a day and have lost 2 permanently.

    Also works with my Apple TV

    • Written by from Dalton

    I needed a replacement remote for my Apple TV, since the one that came with it had been damaged. No one at Apple could confirm that this was the right one, but, I took a chance. Surprise! It works perfectly and looks identical to the original I may order another one to go with this one. This remote is so slim that it's easy to loose. Fortunately, the Apple TV lets you use other unused remotes with it, so I'll let the kids use another bigger remote, and, I'll keep this one safe--I hope.

    Works for Me

    • Written by from Columbus

    Works with my iMac (Mid 2011). iTunes and DVD Player. I sure I'll find other apps to use it with.
    They should make an app to enhance the function of the remote. (deduct 1 star)

    This product is great. And Scott, it doesn't work with the retina display macbook pro or 2012 iMac.

    OK when it works (intermittently)

    • Written by from Carlsbad

    The Apple Remote that came with our Apple TV only works part of the time. It seems to be temperature sensitive - it sometimes works after warming it between my hands. I tried two new batteries with no improvement. It's going back under warranty. (The Apple TV is fine, it works reliably with a trained universal remote.)

    It would be nice if there was a battery level readout like the wireless mouse and keyboard on our iMac. Maybe that's a lot to ask of an IR device - even a red LED on the remote that lights when a button is pressed would help you know if it's still alive.

    Needed accessory!?

    • Written by from Manotick

    This product is great and works with all the macs and apple tv's in my house. If you are to get this product "better touch tools" it is an app and is free, it allows you to customize every button on the remote for mac. Makes the uses for this great product practically endless.

    Lousy

    • Written by from Reno

    First of all, the Apple remote (new) and my Macbook Pro Retina (new) will not pair. Nothing shows up and instructions stink ( why not show visual as to which buttons to press and where to aim it?). After trying to "pair" the remote and Mac for 45 minutes (nothing hallens), I give up. A waste of $20 for the remote. It occurs to me that I might have a bad battery and if this is the case (new remote should NOT have a bad battery), why doesn't the remote have a battery indicator light? A poorly designed unit- not worthy of Apple name.

    Awesome!

    I got one of these waaay back in 2007 with my macbook pro. It's great for presentations and media, but the most fun I've had with it is making other people's computers fall asleep and change their volume. On a college campus, it's pranks galore!

    Too small and thin

    • Written by from Mount morris

    This is one instance where small and thin don't work. Leave it on a couch or chair and it disappears into oblivion for days at a time. I had to turn my couch upside down to find it! Be nice if I could program my TV remote to operate my Apple TV. At least I would have a backup. That's the problem with a lot of devices with remotes. You loose the remote you can't operate the device! Should be some basic controls on any device with a remote. My other gripe is that you absolutely have to point the darn remote at the Apple TV box to get it to respond.
