    Excellent remote control

    • Written by from Dublin 8

    After having my imac for almost 5 years now, the old white remote control that came with it was giving some problems with the play/stop button. So I decided to buy the new remote control, it is really nice and feels really good. It is much more thinner and longer than the first one. The buttons are excellent and really easy to use. I would highly recommend this remote.

    Fab Remote

    • Written by from Birmingham

    Bought this in September 2011 to use mainly for presentations on my MacBook Pro. Excellent remote, nicely designed and works like a charm. Do make sure that when you try to pair it, that you have allowed Pairings with your Mac in the preferences.

    Excelletn product!

    Great remote. You don't need Front Row.

    • Written by from CRAIGAVON

    The remote is excellent. It is well constructed and the minimal design looks great. A lot of reviewers are criticising the remote because Apple removed Front Row in Lion, however, you do not need this program. XBMC works perfectly with the Apple Remote out of the box, will play anything you throw at it, will work with all your iTunes downloads and is a much better program all round than Front Row ever was (plus it is free). Most of the criticisms come from people who never bothered to even google for other media apps. I'm sure it will work with most other 3rd party media apps as well. So don't let the fact that Apple have dropped Front Row detract you from purchasing this remote.

    Sleek, Compact and Functional

    • Written by

    The new Apple Remote is sleek, really small and light and provides all the functionality I need. It fits perfectly with Apple's aluminium range. Bought with the Apple Dock and well worth the money. Although, be warned as OS X Lion doesn't have Front Row, so if you need it for Front Row, you can't use it in Lion but still works with iTunes, Keynote, iPod, iPad etc.

    Excellent product

    • Written by from NÆSTVED

    Stunning design. It matches perfectly with your other Apple products.

    The remote is thin and light, but keeps its ergonomic in top.

    It's a pleasure to use Frontrow with the remote.

    But if you have en Ipod Touch or Iphone, there is an app which turns your ipod touch or iphone into a remote.

    Brilliant little thing! :D

    • Written by from Buckfastleigh

    I bought this about 2 weeks ago and am really very impressed with it. I bought it because I watch lots of films on my macbook pro and was always having to get up or lean forward to change the volume or skip the entrance credits but now I have this its so much more relaxing and nice. PLUS it looks brilliant and is very compact. Oh yeah it also enables you to browse your photos and music without even having to touch your computer! VERY VERY IMPRESSED!!

    Brilliant !

    • Written by from Tommerup

    Yes, the remote is a lot bigger than the previous white one - but this one fits a lot better in your hand than the previous.

    The Apple Remote has a very nice design and is highly recommendable for when you watch movies or listen to music while not having your mac right in front of you.

    A very nice remote.

    It's a good remote.

    • Written by from Chippenham

    It's a good remote that comes with the Apple TV although, like many others, I choose to use my iPhone or iPad to control the Apple TV and I just use this as a back up.

    On My Mac it all works fine front row,itunes,even keynote but when with the ipod nano in the dock the menu button is non functional this might just be me but it still an amazing product, it fits in the hand perfectily (better than the old one).

    Over all a great shiny remote!

    Brilliant!

    • Written by from Dewsbury

    As you'd expect from Apple, this product is beautifully simple, yet does everything you want it to. Straight out of the packaging, I was using it with my MacBook Pro within 10 seconds. It feels nice in the hand, and the buttons are nice to press.
    I mainly use it for Keynote presentations, which it does brilliantly. The only thing I can think of which would make this product better, is releasing an Apple Remote which features a laser pointer (I appreciate not everyone would use this, which is why maybe a separate remote may be the best option). Other than that, it's perfect!
    Thanks Apple!

    Great and simple

    • Written by from Milton Keynes

    I have noticed a couple of people complaining that this remote is too big, being longer than the previous model. However, I find that if anything, this extra length is an improvement, making it easier to hold, and as for being portable and easy to fit in your pocket? Well I find that being so slim and curved, it does so better than the old plastic one.

    There is no question about the high manufacturing quality, and the aluminium is a great bonus. I believe this remote is better kept simple, although I can think of perhaps one or two extra features that would be nice. Only one downside, it occasionally appears to cut out, and fail to work for a few minutes, but it still works great afterwards, and in fairness, it has seen a lot of use. Other than that, nothing bad to say.

    Beautiful industrial art

    • Written by from København S

    One piece of aluminum that is a couple of classes over the already great plastic remote. So much care for detail and style that the price seems way to low.

    It's simply art and a joy to use.

    No new functions. But I never wanted them anyway! This is such a beautiful upgrade. It is super sleek, and really compliments any aluminium Apple product.

    It looks great, feels great and is simple to use. Buy it now as it compliments the aluminium imacs much more stylishly than the white plastic version.

    Excellent little addition

    • Written by from Walsall

    As the title says, it's a great little addition to my collection of Mac accessories. Works with front row nicely, very quick and easy to connect to my white Macbook - only needed to do it once and it's stayed in sync since. I bought it mainly for Keynote presentations and it works really well. I know the iPhone app is only .59p and allows you to see presenter notes, but this is a beautifully made, discreet little remote, easily concealed and very easy to use. Great little accessory - if you're used to paying Apple prices for accessories, you can't go far wrong with this.
