    Great Controller .. Not so sure about the adapter

    Okay so I bought this controller thinking that it would work magic with the adapter. Think again. If you connect it to the adapter, it will not work. Very few (I think only For Honor) support this adapter. So if you want to enjoy this controller, here are your options: 1- Play For Honor only 2- Connect it via a usb cable and play as a generic controller 3- Connect it via steam on a game that supports the controller. 4- Connect it via the adapter and download a software called 'InputMApper' that reads it as an Xbox One controller but at least you will enjoy it.

    Good controller, bad receiver

    The dongle included in this starter kit has very poor power. I have the receiver plugged in less than 5 feet away from me and the controller, yet if I were to move my leg in the direct path between the two devices the controller will cease to function.The PS4 itself doesn't have this problem, so I assumed the dongle wouldn't either, but I was wrong.

    Great Concept but Unnecessary

    I purchased this for use with my iMac. Turns out that the DualShock4 can connect directly to my Mac via bluetooth without the need for this additional device. The price was actually the same as it was to purchase the DualShock4 on its own, so not a big deal. Not entirely necessary, though. Maybe if you had a computer without built-in bluetooth?

    Not worth the extra couple bucks

    I purchased this thinking it would be easier than doing a manual bluetooth sync or having a cable. Unfortunately, the pairing was not as straight forward as you would assume and often didn't work. I would recommend investing in a long USB cable rather than messing around with the wireless.

    I purchased the Dualshock controller to use with PlayNow online via BluRay player. After I set everything up I found that I needed the older model controller because the newer one that I had purchased would not work. I ended up returning both the BluRay player as well as the controller.

    First thought this was the best idea, when i got it, found out it does not work on all windows os. Description said which os. But not versions within. Does not work on 64 bit. Gotta find a workaround or wait for an update. Hope i can get it to work so i can try it out.

    At first I thought this was a awesome ideal. That was until i found out that you still had to have the PS4 on and with you to even use your game on the computer. Why wouldn't I just play on my TV.

    Not worth $69 in my opinion. It's better to just wait for a sale. I bought this at $29.99 and it was worth it. The controller is the latest controller that comes with the PS Pro.

    This product is confusing. It works great if you want to use playstation now or steam from your PS4 but for any other purpose the adapter is all but useless.

    The connection is spotty so even if you have a strong connection, it's still spotty. It's like share playing but on your computer.
