LEGO® Power Functions IR Receiver is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The "Main Knob" for all IR builds This unit is brilliant !! It's not just a reciever, but also a twin controller unit. It has 2 separate subchannels for each of the 4 main channels. This way it will control 2 motors or 1 motor and lights on a train, or any two powerfunction units. As a "train-o-holic" this unit along with the other controls is a MUST for powering and controlling modern lego IR trains. I wish that lego would make a SET with the necessary items for powering trains: 8884 IR reciever 8879 IR speed remote control 8870 lights 88002 train motor 88000 battery box (or alternately, 8878 rechargable battery box and 8887 charger) And then give us a reasonable rebate on the whole deal, since we already have bought a train. {;o)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Again, needs improvement! This is an essential set if you want any remote control. BUT!! The current output is vastly limited --> You cannot run any of two PF motors from one slot. Of course, you can workaround this problem with two IR receivers, assigning each PF motors to each IR receivers. But you need two controllers to actually power two motors at the same time. --> a waste of resource. I know that V2 partially solves the problem but you can't get them unless you purchase the retired product: 4x4 Crawler from an aftermarket. I'm not sure why LEGO isn't still phasing this V1 receiver out while V2 was released 4 yrs ago...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything is Awesome........... These remote, and motor parts make any Lego set, or build go to the next stage of fun. My son want's to buy more so as to make the truck a full RC. My son is 9, the build rated 10-14 so was a challenge, which is what he enjoys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Full review from Range, to Model it is here. This is a very good Piece of equipment, if you just have a motor and a battery box and looking into making your models RC this would be very helpful, It has about a 25-30 Foot range Indoors, and about a 15-20 Out doors. This has been a fan loved piece so there where three types, Most people don't know about that this one had a older one it looked the same and acted similar, It had a 10-15 Foot range inside and about 10 foot range outdoors, I would recommend buying it from a place like LEGO because they are only selling the 'Newer' one, The V2 Featured in the Rock crawler has better battery to motor power usage, so the motors spin the same speed but the battery uses less power, I have the V2 and I think it has a little better range (though I haven't tested it yet) I can't say what to do right now, Wait and get the newer one (though it isn't much better then this one) Or just have this one Because we don't know if this could come out in a day or a year it is a hard choice. Value for money is excellent, $12 to make awesome RC models is totally worth it. They do break after about 3 years I have just had my oldest one pass its life time. Play, Wow all I can say is that these make your model that much better. They are so fun whether it is from Driving your LEGO train around the Christmas tree, to Driving your LEGO Jeep outside this is perfect for every place. Unlike most of the PF parts I don't know if this is water proof, the motors are and I have tested them but I don't want to test this. Mainly for Technic building, it has two front Pin holes then the rest of it is studded. The video I attached is of my Jeep I built and it is showing my Technic model using this part. This is outdoors and I am about 10 feet away at the time.
