    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.

    great!

    Im using this remote with my 2014 mac mini and is a great option when wanting to control my video and music without using the keyboard. Took only 2 seconds to set up, all you need is an IR reader, which unfortunately is becoming rare on macs.

    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.
