The BD Remote is an optional accessory for the PS3 and unfortunately, it hasn't got enough features to make it an on-demand product. If you're filthy rich or want to waste money, then feel free to buy it. But if you wanna conserve money, you can live without this product as the default PS3 Sixaxis controller can handle all the playback options of viewing a movie on the PS3.
During my trial of the remote at my friend's house, I didn't get to customize anything at all. So I gave it a poor rating of 1. The ease of use for either hand was excellent, either hand was practically the same except it was slightly harder to reach the power button on the opposite hand.
Perhaps the best feature of the BD remote is its durability. It looks very sturdy and it has a special mechanism that "juices out" the last life of a battery. This technology will end the days of banging on the end of a remote just to get it to work for a few more minutes.
Overall, mind-blowing technology but the BD remote won't be revolutionary as it isn't needed to enjoy high-definition movies on the PS3.
