Flawed but functional Posted by: from: on These controllers may be suitable for some as a budget buy, but I wouldn't recommend them for serious gamers. As compared to regular Playstation 3 wireless controllers, they fall short in the following ways: 1. No Sixaxis functionality. Games that require you to twist or shake the controller won't be playable with these controllers. 2. Cannot turn the PS3 console on. Not that big of a deal, but a minor inconvenience. 3. They don't recharge. You must use AA batteries, and batteries aren't included. 4. The wireless connectivity requires one USB dongle per controller (included with product.) So if you plan to use more than one of these controllers, you need to have the same number of free USB ports available on your PS3 or PC to get all of the controllers connected. Most importantly, the wireless range on these controllers is quite poor. I was only able to get about four feet away from the dongle before experiencing connection issues. Unless you play practically right next to your PS3 or PC, these controllers simply won't work. Buyer beware. If none of the above issues are likely to bother you, then you might be happy with these. The buttons and analog sticks were all very responsive, making these well suited for basic use.

Works great, very easy to use. Posted by: from: on I bought this for my son, but I have used it quite a bit myself. First the controller is wireless which is awesome, no wires to deal with. I'm not into gaming much, but even with my lack of knowledge, I had no problem getting the controller working with the Playstation3. I put new batteries in the controller when we got it. The controller gets used a lot and we have yet to change them. The battery usage / life seems to be good also. We do not keep the blue L.E.D.'s burning so that may help with the battery life. I can't say anything negative. This has been a great controller for our family.

Great 3rd party option controller Posted by: from: on The lights are very bright and colorful. You just plug the receiver in the PS3 or PC and play just like that. For some PC games though, you might need additional software. Overall, solidly built and doesn't feel cheap at all.

Not so cool Posted by: from: on I guess I didn't check to realize it uses only AA batteries and cannot be charged to play wirelessly like a "normal" controller. Now I have to keep buying new batteries for it as my son loves the glow but will cost me more.

Looks great but not Posted by: from: on The only draw to this controller is that it cheaper than the original controller and it has flashy lights on it during game play. You need batteries for it to work and some features aren't available with it. I will not purchase another. I'll just cough up the extra money to get the original next time.
