There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
This thing has buttons seemingly moved around at random from the original design, it turns itself off after 15 minutes of not being used and you have to press the PS4 button and wait 3 seconds before being able to use it again AND on top of all that it chews through batteries! We had to replace the PS3 batteries once ever couple of years. This one needs replacing every couple of weeks!
Stick to using the PS4 controller and don’t waste your money on this crap.

The other reason is that the shoulder buttons on the DualShock have the bad habit to fast forward or to rewind, depending on how I put it back on the couch or table after using it. Clearly, this won't be happening with the pdp remote.
Finally, the fact that the remote powers down on its own after a while is more comfortable than manualy switching the DualShock off, in which case a special screen superimposes on the film or program you are watching. The DualShock can be set to power down after a while, but it will still lose charge and I'd rather have it fully charged when I want to play.
The only thing getting used to is that you have to push the PS button to reactivate the remote when it has powered down, and the lag is a bit long.
I haven't tried to synch the remote with my TV set, so I can't say anything about it yet.
All in all, I definitely recommend this product if you use your PS4 more as a BR/DVD player than as a gaming console.
Also, if you press the PS4 button from device list or the large PS button is turns your PS4 on- you just have to keep it pressed a little longer.
Overall I'm pleased with this remote, it feels very sturdy and pleasant to use overall
However (and I admit this is a niggle) but the PS3 remote could adjust the volume, mute, change channel and source, whilst still controlling PS3 functions like play, pause etc, without having to switch between TV and PS4 functions at the top of the remote. This is new remote does not recognise any functions of the TV whilst communicating with the PS4, and vice versus.
It's a small difference, but enough to notice considering this is a newer product.
For the money it could and should be much better but with no proper Sony one, this is as good as it gets at the moment and certainly more convenient than using a controller, but that’s about the only thing it’s got going for it.
Where it falls down;
As noted in many other reviews, it is annoying that (after a sort period of inactivity) you need to hit the playstation button first to wake up the controller before you can perform whatever action you wish. Is it a deal breaker? No, but it happens so regularly that it becomes an ongoing irritation.
The bigger problem, from my point of view, is the inconsistency of the functionality between services. So the rewind button might simply skip back 10 seconds on Netflix, but on Amazon Prime the same button causes what you're watching to zoom backwards until you press play, on another service it skips back a chapter. It's really annoying as I watch things on different services and find myself constantly surprised at what is happening. (I rewind a lot to listen to dialogue I missed, or to a scene that was particularly good.)
Finally, the main buttons that I want (play, pause, rewind) are just a little too small and tightly packed together to be really distinguishable by my (perhaps too fat) fingers as I navigate them in the near-dark. I often find myself turning on a lamp so I can hit the playstation button so I can hit the rewind button (and then maybe the play button if it's zooming backwards). It's a lot of faff when this controller was meant to make things easier.
This review is sounding pretty negative but I am highlighting the weaknesses. For me, it is an improvement over the playstation controller whose functionality was not intuitive when it came to watching video, whose buttons could accidentally be pressed when it was set down, and whose battery was being drained due to my movie watching impacting on the following day's gameplay.
I was price-gouged when purchasing this, paying nearly £70. It was absolutely not worth that, but given the pandemic look-down, and my increased movie watching, I decided to just take the hit. In more normal times, do not pay anything over £30 for this, and only then if you are watching a lot of video on your playstation.
