Summary: The person who wrote the long description of this guitar before me, hit the nail on the head. It is heavier then the "regular" controller. But feels like a real guitar. It is orange. Very orange. ;-) Just like something a rock stair would have. I would buy it again, and would recommend it to others. The only complaint I have with it is SOMETIMES it feels like no matter how the game is calibrated, you miss notes that you know you have gotten right.
Summary: I looked at reviews and prices for all the different types of guitar controllers for Rock Band, and finally decided on this Guitar Hero controller. (Note, even though it is for GH, it works just fine with RB3 on my PS3.) I must say I like it, but that it isn't 'that much better' than the Rock Band controllers or other Guitar Hero controllers. It is heavier and looks better. However, the buttons are not 'whisper' quiet...
Summary: The Logitech controller appears well made but I did have a few complaints. 1. Stiff "Select" button. This makes using Overdrive/Star Power without shaking the controller somewhat difficult. 2. Spacing of fret buttons. I have small hands and find myself straining to reach yellow at times but this probably is just me. 3. Cost.
Summary: I purchased this guitar after the Warbeast went down completely in less than a year. It is a solid design and works very well with Guitar Hero games. But I also have all of the Rock Band games and this guitar will not sync up with the game. I have 2 PS2's one is the older model and one I just got, the slim design. It would not work in either system.
Summary: This is a great controller and much more sturdy than any of the packaged controllers I have tried. I would have preferred a different color than orange, but besides that the controller is exactly what I was looking for in a guitar hero controller. In my opinion this is very much worth the $100 I paid for it, not sure if it would be worth the $200 MSRP.
Summary: Pros: *Works for PS2 & PS3, also PS3 Slim *Nice weight, not too heavy and very realistic *Buttons are slightly smaller but slightly farther apart than on the GH 5 guitar, making them easier to manage for smaller (adult/teenage) hands *Great battery life *Has Slider *STRUM BAR IS EXTREMELY QUIET!!
Summary: Most of the reviews already here will give you an idea of the fret action and strumming capabilities, so I won't go into too much detail. The guitar is pretty quiet, never sticks and I haven't had much trouble with the fret buttons. Occasionally I'll miss a note I could have SWORN I nailed, but it doesn't bother me as much as the other reviewers. Plus, the raised buttons were always a preference of mine, as opposed to the rockband controllers.
Summary: I can't consider myself a huge fan of either Guitar Hero or Rock Band. I bought the first Guitar Hero when it came out and enjoyed it immensely -- but immediately became dismayed by the onslaught of new game and controller releases. Compatibility also became an issue after awhile. That said, I'll explain that I'm a game collector -- however -- I prefer to own the best of peripherals rather than a huge swatch of them. I don't need 4 guitars and drums and all of that.
