    Build Quality

    • Written by from Huntsville

    It has excellent build quality. Apple has definitely done it again! Works great and I love how it's made from aluminum and not cheap plastic like every other electronic accessory out there.

    More I use it the more I like it.

    • Written by from NORTH SALT LAKE

    Received as a Christmas gift. Remote has a much better tactile feel since it has a slightly raised and a concave button. I originally thought the longer size would be a drawback, but it seems to fit into the hand better. Of course love the durability and overall feel of the metal and the battery compartment is more accessible.

    Excellant, quality just oozes from this.

    • Written by from Cannington

    Beautiful piece of design work, precision machined, feels nice in your hand-design makes it easy to pick up and hold, buttons are good, angle of reception fantastic. It is a piece of art. Impressed. I like good design and quality manufacturing.

    Since it is begging to be picked up and held, I want to watch all my videos on the mac mini. :) I wish I could have more use for this precision manufactured item than being a quality remote for video and audio, maybe more buttons, a keyboard on the back, a mic, a motion detector......

    BTW, and of course it just works as its designed to.

    Works Great

    • Written by from Mount Solon

    My Apple Remote works very well. I can now sit in bed and list to some music on iTunes without even getting up. The Apple Remote has a wonderfully slim design and I'd recommend it to anyone buying a new Mac. I love how it matches my new 15-inch MacBook Pro! :)

    Out of this world

    It has an incredibly pleasing feel to it. It is a same functioning design as the cheap plastic one, usually included with purchase of the Apple TV or Mac Book Pro, but the beauty of this Remote is hard to describe. You will love it.

    Pretty Darn Good Looking Too

    • Written by from Uvalde

    It's great... there is an amazing thing that hasn't happened in the past and that is that you can pair you computer with one remote... i remember sitting in class and friends that sat behind me would mess with my computer from the back... but now there isn't a problem. And for presentations it looks great in your hand

    Good and bad

    • Written by from Oakland

    Really beautiful and super flat design.

    However, if you're an Apple TV user for 2 years like I am, you'll be very used to the previous design, so there is a learning curve. The menu button is now on the bottom left, rather than centered, so it will slow down your speed if you're used to the old one. Also, Apple made a very un-Apple decision to add a completely redundant play button. So the middle button still selects and plays, but there's now a second play button on the bottom right. This makes absolutely no sense -- what was Apple thinking?

    Not sure if the cool design is worth the trade-off.

    New Remote Worth Purchasing

    • Written by from Atlanta

    The new apple remote feels better with a fresh new contoured body and is extremely reminiscent of the silver nano. It's new length fits in your hand without getting lost if you have long hands like i do. It matches all of the aluminum products beautifully and is definitely worth getting if you enjoy a matching home entertainment system.

    Cons- 19 dollars always seemed a bit steep to me for a simple remote, but I still think it's a great piece of hardware.

    It's a remote!

    • Written by from 서대문구

    I like it. It is nice.

    The new length and weight gives it a nice feel. The menu button and play button are still different, but the middle is still able to be used as the select button. It seems like there is redundancy and for the sake of design the extra button was added.

    It matches my MBA which is what I got it for. However it seems to be all design and no functionality.

    That is my take on it. The old plastic one is still nice.

    Great little remote. If you lose it in you couch, don't just buy another like Juan O. They have a iPhone app that works the apple tv too. Gotta use your eyes and brain though.

    Beautiful

    • Written by from Lincoln

    This is one of the most beautifully designed and built products that I have ever seen in my life. The menu and center buttons are slightly concave and your fingers sit very nicely on them (seriously). The case is a single piece of aluminum (no seams except for the battery cover, buttons, and IR transmitter of course). Matches perfectly with the Mac computers’ latest designs. Simple and perfect.

    Not up to my expectations for Apple.

    • Written by from Fairfield

    From a purely functional standpoint the remote performs as advertised. However from an ergonomics standpoint it is terrible. It is too small to be held comfortably in the hand, even for someone with small hands. The buttons are awkwardly placed and require you to adjust your grip to operate it. The click wheel from the ipod is mimicked in the design but it is in fact a faux click wheel that is really a directional pad. You can advance through menus by pressing => but you cant back through them the same way, you have to hit the awkward menu button. Until apple updates this I wouldn't waste my money. The Remote App for iphone or ipod is far superior, easier to use and has more functions.

    My Hands Hate The "New" Apple Remote

    • Written by from Santa Fe

    To the point - the sharp metal edges do not feel good in my hands - the placement of the 'Menu' button is awkward - the 'wheel' around the 'select' button is hard to locate by touch alone - the battery cover on the back is a tactile distraction and is hard to 'close' - the metal finish gets clammy and damp from being held.

    PUL-LEAZE - do something with the design of the Apple Remote - this metal thing is really not good - and I am a 1988-to-the-present SUPER APPLE FAN - There's almost nothing to complain about regarding Apple designs - but this one is TERRIBLE!

    Looks good with a MBP

    • Written by from Tampa

    Looks good as it matches the color of the MBP. really professional look for Powerpoint and Keynote presentations. Pity they made something so sleek and didn't think to integrate a laser pointer however, or at least a second model with a laser inside.
