Summary: The controller is actually very nice. A little different than a Sony brand, but still great, and the price is unbeatable. The main reason I only gave it 3 stars is the fact that it had marks on the back of the controller, which obviously appears to be USED. It was described as NEW??
Summary: Bought mine on the website and picked up at store. Once unboxed, I noticed some dents, scratches and dirty. It also smelled cigarrette, so no way to give it to my 6-year -old son. It had certainly been used for quite a long time. I decided to go back to the store and I got my product exchanged.
Summary: Purchased in Sept., broke in Jan. Controller with light to reasonable use and rotated through use with two others. Don't know if the manufacturing is any different on the different colors or if it's just the housing, but the white one was the one that broke.
Summary: the controller works great but did not come in new packaging. it was secondarily shrink wrapped on a piece of cardboard. no wire to charge it with and no instructions. it looks new. but unknown for sure because it did not come like the picture shown in original packaging.
Summary: Controller worked as expected but a few months after purchase the right analogue stick was moving on its own. I take pride in how well I treat my game controllers and never had one break on me. Three stars since the controller is great but this one must've been a defective model.
Pros: This is my favorite controller for so many reasons. It feels great in the hands, is super-responsive, almost never loses connection, the battery lasts for a very long time, works via standard bluetooth across devices, and the build quality is superb.
Cons: I sent this as a gift for a friend with a Mac, and since found out that it didn't come with a USB cable. My friend had to buy one. So I feel like a doof. Granted it's "standard" mini-USB, but not everyone has those lying around. I re-read the product description and no, it doesn't specifically sa...
Summary: I still have this controller for my PS3. The left stick gets a little stuck, but that just maybe be a result of dust and moisture from using it a lot. Silver paint comes off after two months. I was a little disappointed about that.
