    Apple TV Remote

    I have four Apple remotes for my apple tv's and three of the four Apple remotes have failed when trying to use the up button on the remote. Three of my Apple TV remotes up button stopped working. I will be taking them back to the store this morning and hopefully Apple will provide me with three new Apple TV remotes. The fact that 3 of my 4 Apple TV remotes up button doesn't work tells me it is an Apple design flaw or the batch of Apple TV remotes I received shouldn't have passed quality control.

    Absolutely the worst remote control

    Not sure how to put this in the worst terms I can but this is the worst remote control that anyone has designed. It is the absolute worst. Did anyone test this thing? I know there are people that will not say anything bad about any product that apple will make but come on. I wish I could give it negative stars.

    I hate this remote

    Hate isn't a strong enough word for this silver devil stick. It constantly gets lost among covers, pillows, and cushions. Way too small for anyone to try and keep track of. If I could add up the hours of my life I've spent looking for it in the couch cushions, I could have solved several world problems. I can't wait til the next new technology makes my Apple TV and its devil child spawn remote obsolete. I'm going to destroy this stupid thing...if I can find it. For now I'll just buy a new one to replace the one that's currently AWOL. So annoyed.....

    Nothing about this remote works for real people

    The remote is small and easily slips out of your hand.
    When using the apple tv you've got to enter lots of text in order to find things, the remote is very slow and inaccurate to do that.
    When trying to use the voice input to spell user id or password it inserts random spaces thus yielding your effort moot. Couple that with my first point and you've a very frustrating combination.

    Please Apple give us the keyboard back.

    Trendy design over functionality

    As usual, Apple scores on trendy design. But the thing has never worked right. The right/forward button has never worked properly since the day we opened the box. Finally after a year of sticky/intermittent functioning of that button we pried the thing apart (another annoying thing about Apple is they make all their products impossible to get into and fix). We discovered some sort of sticky glue over top of a button that wasn't seated correctly that could not be repaired. While I understand that manufacturing glitches happen, that is not my only issue with this remote. Like another user stated -- by removing all the buttons to have the "coolest" looking remote on the market, Apple has given us a remote that is a headache to use. Constant scrolling, tedious, takes too much time. Yes, our regular TV and video remotes and Comcast remotes are hugely clunky by comparison, but they aren't nearly as annoying to use.

    Very Elegant Remote Design

    I really like the looks and solid metal feel of this remote. The design is simple and form follows function. What is not to like about it? Five stars!

    Works great.

    Im trying to find the difference worth switching up to the next hyped apple product but I find no necessary adjustments made worth buy a new tv app for. This generation still works great. I wish I could delete and add thing to the main page. Wish the control had had some sort of of screen to type. Obviously they would need to make the remote more normal sized too fit that function. I hate having to switch to my phone just to type a title in. Also want necessary upgrades made. Anyhow I could wait for the next upgrade.

    Simple is better.

    Hard to go wrong with the most simple remote on the planet, honestly. I can imagine if you have large hands it could basically disappear under your fingers, but if you aren't ham fisted with it you really won't want to go back to a normal IR remote after.

    The most annoying remote on the planet - I would give it no stars.

    Having to scroll slowly down to each letter is tedious, the annoying sensitivity of the buttons is more tedious, scrolling again to delete letters the apple remote thought you pressed is painful, so that by the time you have entered the right word you could have watched the movie.
    Fix up your time-wasting remote.
