PDP and its 3rd party accessories for game consoles have become extremely competitive in the market when compared to its first party counterparts. There are also some of its accessories that are licensed by the first party companies and come with the same quality that you would expect if the first party had made it themselves.Enter the PS4 media remote made by PDP. It is licensed by Sony for use with the PS4 and other media devices including your TV, cable box, and even audio receiver. This slick looking remote is extremely comfortable in your hands and checks just about every box you could hope for in a remote control.

After taking this remote on a test drive for a little while, it definitely has cut down on the amount of times where I have hit buttons by mistake and ruined any sense of my movies immersion due to a rewind or chapter skip. The buttons have just enough resistance to prevent the accidental button presses; it’s lightweight and lays comfortably in your hand so you can easily access any of the buttons when necessary.

For the most part, this remote has no flaws and delivers on everything you need for a remote control. If I had to choose a con for the product, I would say that it goes into rest mode a bit too easily. The only other minor con would be it sporting a $29.99 price tag. That isn’t my ideal price when it comes to having an extra remote to be used with media apps, but on the other hand, you’d also be hard-pressed to find another remote out there that has not only all the bells and whistles but also come in a sleek and compact design.

If you have ever been agitated or upset about inadvertently pausing, skipping, or rewinding from hitting buttons on the PS4 controller while relaxing in bed or on the couch, then the PDP PS4 Universal Media Remote is the remedy for all your movie watching pains. Now while the remote won’t make your media content any better, it certainly will improve your in-home experience when watching them.
