Summary: this is an outstanding controller! I think that it is way better than the controllers that come with the Ps3. If you don't believe me, I'll tell you this: there is more control on the analog stocks meaning that they don't stick at all. Plus the controller is more efficient because it can last days on just 2 AA batteries whereas the controller that comes with the Ps3 can only last a few hours.
Summary: I DO NOT suggest this controller to be used all the time. This controller is more of a secondary "only used when a friends over for 2 player" type of controller. It does not have bluetooth and occasionally it does a little bug where the light blinks and it doesn't work. But you just reset it and it works fine. It feels a little chunky and unusual compared to normal SIXAXIS.
Summary: This is a very good controller, overall not cheap manufacturing. The shipping was SUPER FAST (from hy games) it came in one business day, when it said it was going to come the 27th (a week from ordering). VERY Easy to sync, you may want to get a usb splitter so you have more room for your other controllers, chargers, headset chargers, ect. it is bulkier than the standard controller, which isnt a bad thing though.
Don't belive the haters, this is a good piece of equipment

Summary: First of, let me tell you why i got this controller, it was not to substitute the original shock PS3 controller but to get an additional one without paying an arm for it, i was able to score this controller on a really good price so decided to take a flyer on it, the packing was good as well as the instructions, on the down side well it has a usb stick that you will have to insert on your PS3 to make it work ...
Works great with PS3 and works on my PC too! BONUS!

Summary: I basically purchased this device to use on a PS3. But I got it earlier than I expected and for a week it was without a PS3. I thought maybe I could use it on my laptop and as soon as I plugged it in my laptop (OS: Win 7 Pro x64), it just got detected. And voila! I was playing NFS Shift, and Split-Second on my laptop using this device. When eventually the controller saw a PS3 and got a chance to get to its designated parent, it was perfect.
Summary: So I was trying to play an old PSOne platformer "Jersey Devil" on my PS3 with the Dualshock 3 and was getting really frustrated with the horrid controller response. I was dying constantly and wanted very much to throw my controller against the wall (fortunately I'm not one of those people who actually do, I'd rather save the $40 it'd cost to replace it).
Summary: This wireless controller is the cheaper option ($19.99 vs. $49.99) and works effectively. I bought it without a manual and realized I had to click the bluetooth button on the piece you plug into PS3 in order for it to be activated. It is a smaller controller for my hands but this is standard size. If you want a cheaper wireless option go for it.
Summary: this controller is very nice and ultra comfortable. I really like it and using it the only problem is that freakin sixaxis, in almost every game I own at one point in time this is a necessary thing. Sony most likely did that on purpose because now at the current moment of this review no one but Sony makes a sixaxis controller, I am pretty sure that won't change. Really great gamepad for PC, also because it's not bluetooth it cannot turn on your PS3.
Summary: I got the controller as a quick and more cost effective way to start playing my PS3! The other Logitech controllers I had to my Xbox and PS2 worked awesome. To my surprise the controller worked brilliantly! Don't get me wrong the Sony Sixaxis is prime, but also very expensive. The only drawback that comes to mind is the buttons are a some what taller than the Sony controllers!
Summary: I got this controller on sale for about half the price of a new Dualshock 3, and I'm happy to say that it's actually really good. Logitech continues the tradition of quality products. The controller is much more comfortable to hold than the Sixaxis and it has far superior analog sticks, especially if you're going to use it to play shooters. This was a serious aid to my SOCOM game (or lack thereof). I was pleased with the overall quality of this controller.
