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.
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: 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 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.
Summary: I got this controller during a Christmas sale for $[...] at Gamestop and have been pleased with my purchase. Please note, it does NOT have rumble or SixAxis support. That said, it's put together well and feels nice and solid in my hands. I also prefer the more rounded feel to it as opposed to the traditional PS controllers.
Summary: I've always enjoyed the Logitech brand controllers for all my consoles. This controller is a great deal if you're looking for an inexpensive second controller. The one, or two downsides it is the inability to turn the PS3 on with the controller and lack of rumble. Aside from that, I actually prefer this controller over the six axis for some games as it has added weight and feels less "cheap" than the Sony brand contoller.
Summary: This controller is a great 3rd party controller. It works well, never loses it's wireless connection, and it feels much better than the Sony controller. As already stated, the main drawbacks would be no six-axis support (not a problem for me as I've never used it anyway), and the PS3 cannot be powered on by the controller.
