4.5 Great remote, poor design. Amn3sia91 | 04/02/2012 | See all Amn3sia91's reviews (9) The remote has a very study feeling to it, and both looks and feels as if it could take a real beating. The fact that it doesn't use IR to transmit the signal lets you point the controller in any direction and still control the PS3, unlike conventional TV remotes. The only negative aspect of the remote is the design, it's built for durability which means that it isn't that good looking. All in all a great buy for anyone who uses their PS3 as a Blu-ray player.
