Loose buttons, feels cheap.

These are at least the 8th and 9th remotes I've had over the course of Roku time. The kids eat them, the dogs eat them... I got sick of losing them so I decided to drill a hole through our last one and attach it to the coffee table with string. I picked a nice spot on the bottom of the remote below where the batteries were so there wouldn't be any important circuitry, because obviously there wouldn't be anything important that far down. Well, the brains of the operation lives right where the #30 drill bit went through.
This time took a screw out under the battery cover and drilled through that out the face, installed the battery cover and back drilled it. Now, I have a remote attached to the end table. The other one is free to be lost and found. As for these remotes, the arrow keys rattle and feel like cheap ABS plastic. The whole package feels cheap, light weight and shipped without batteries, but it works. They should have done what I've seen inside some other consumer goods and glue meaningless weights inside it to give it the impression there's some substance in there Maybe some Pop-Tarts and powdered donuts ground in there over time will help it feel better. I like the hot keys on the bottom (finally, Hulu, Amazon and Netflix!) I paid extra over other remotes for the shortcut buttons I often use.
