One For All's new range is dubbed XSight, but it got off to a rocky start with our two-star review of the range-topping Touch last month.

Thankfully, the peculiar language bugs we encountered previously are absent when we setup the Colour, but it's still a very cumbersome process, whether you use the PC software or on-remote guide, requiring lots of trial-and-error, and lacking the intelligence of the Logitechs when it comes to creating activities and working out what inputs your equipment has.

The lack of a touchscreen and cradle isn't terminal, but doesn't help, and the extra customisation and profile creation added with the new software, though neat, isn't a deal-maker.
