Fair play. Think i payed £17+ for mine a few months back

Don't want to put a dampener on this one, and I doubt you'd notice the difference, but this isn't an official remote.

If you look, the brand name "Sony" isn't on any of the pictures, see

They do have the official remote, but it's rather more expensive. ]http//ww…679

Again you can see the "Sony" written at the bottom of the remote. Still, a deal is a deal! Nice price for a bluetooth remote :gift:

If people don't mind about unbranded remotes, Blockbuster do one for £9.99

i got mine from marshall ward for £4 with £15 off first spend or something like that

I'd rather pay the bit extra and get a genuine one from Amazon for £16.96 with free delivery

Not voting either way.

Cheers, Des.

note of advice for people buying from dealextreme:

since delivery is free order one item at a time.

twice in a row i have ordered from them and they left items missing from the original order. it's a real pain to set up a claim and claims takes ages to sort out. as far as i am aware i am not the only person missing items from dealextreme. so to spare yourself grief i suggest ordering one item at a time.

Voting cold as it's not an original, and not really 'that' cheap to be honest, to be ordering from a US company etc.

+1

although its a chinese company.

I'd rather go for the Gamestation "instore" offer, Casino Royale, HDMI cable and official remote for £19.99

Voted cold as it's not original.

agreed,not worth it for non sony IMO

£14 for an unofficial remote is no bargain when an official one is only slightly more expensive, cold from me too.

I got mine for £5 in WHSmith it was on here! Not sure if its still availiable

The genuine sony one costs £15 in my local ASDA. Voted cold

Ordered mine for £14.99 from ]play.com + quidco. Voted Cold

good remote for changing things

This isn't a great deal.
Play has the official remote available for £14.99 with free delivery

Isn't this kinda useless anyway? The PS3 controller is wireless and performs all the functions of a remote

There's a reason why remote controllers are shaped like remote controllers and not joypads....

In any case, this has the functionality on single buttons and doesn't require you to pull up a menu and navigate around it with the pad in order to select a control function.

Could I ask if anyone here has the official remote, have you noticed that the paint on the rubber keys is wearing off? I've had mine for about a year and not used it much, but for what keys I have been pressing the paint is almost worn off!

Anyone else?

mine is official, 2 years old, used loads and looks the same as the day I bought it.

Did you buy your 'official' one from dealextreme?

Voted cold - better off paying a few pence/pounds more for the official one.

@ Mallinersha - I have had the official remote for about 2 years, and have not lost any paint from the keys or anywhere else - sounds like you have a duff one. My PlayTV overlay has lost lots of print though, and has only been one the remote for about 3 months.

ahhh I have ordered one before seeing if its the offical or not =/

No, my official one came from Toys R Us - weird, I must've got a reject one :x

How is this HOT? Get to Play or ASDA, HMV e.t.c and buy the original one.
