XBox 360 Remote
The Futuretronics XBox 360 Universal Remote
is the perfect accessory for those that have purchased the standard XBox
360 console or for those that have somehow damaged their original
Microsoft XBox 360 remote control beyond repair.
Either way, the
Futuretronics XBox 360 Universal Remote has a recommended retail price
of $29.95 and should definitely be investigated when thinking of
purchasing a remote control for this next generation console.
The remote comes in the classic XBox 360
grey with a similar button scheme as the official XBox 360 controller
and is larger. However a variety of other colours are available that
include silver, clear blue, clear red and black. The reason for the size difference is that the
Futuretronics third party remote control comes with additional buttons
that is ideal for navigating those DVD menus and chapters.
The remote control has been ergonomically designed for comfort that
comfortably fits in the hand with the buttons being easily accessible. There
are a few third party remotes on the market that have rather stiff
buttons, however the Futuretronics XBox 360 Universal Remote has
clickable buttons that feel sturdy yet easy to push.
Installation? What installation, the device automatically works once you
have installed the batteries into the device and best of all, the remote
control also comes with two batteries, ensuring that you can use the
device immediately upon returning home with your purchase.
My only gripe
with the device is the size, which is a little on the large size as is
the official PlayStation 3 remote control but itís a small price to pay
for such a well made item.
