Saitek's DVD Remote Controller
for PlayStation 2 works very well - at any reasonable angle with the system. It is
based on infra-red technology, as your television remote would be. The receiving unit needs no batteries and has a 'pass-thru' port for your controller to plug into. This means that there's no need to switch between your DVD Remote Controller
and a normal (or other) controller in port one. Instead, you can plug the DVD Remote Controller
into port one and then plug whatever controller you wish into the receiver unit
. This way, you basically never have to remove the receiver unit. That makes it a pretty good thing that the receiver matches the style and appearance to the PS2 pretty well. In fact, the remote itself has the PS2 fin design that we're all so familiar with.
The final question is: what do I want in a remote control? If some of your answers include 'small', 'sleek', 'lightweight', 'clearly marked' or 'stylish' then the Saitek DVD Remote Controller for the PlayStation 2 might be perfect for you.
