Broken PS3 AND a broken controller

Summary: I purchased a used PS3 along with MGS4 and Uncharted 3 yesterday. I plugged everything in and upon startup the controller went nuts and began selecting items at random and eventually set the system preferences in a foreign language!
Summary: bought this a while ago and had it 2 days and started vibrating and very noisy, I took it off with the intention to return it but ended up forgetting about it and found it a few weeks ago, so i took it apart and slapped in much better fans and now its worthy.
Pros: good construction, great tight clip to rear of ps3 and simple to use.
Cons: terrible cheap fans, terrible vibration when bad could cause damage to the ps3.
Adding to my previous review - Still Junk out of the box
24 February 2012
Summary: Just wanted to add to my previous review... If you are willing to do the extra work to add decent fans into the well designed assembly, go for it! I replaced all the fans with good ball bearing fans and about a year later they are still running strong and quiet!
Pros: Great Design, Fantastic Idea!! Quick and easy installation! Two fan speed settings! - same as previous
Cons: The Fan are extrememly CHEAP!!! Worked good for 1 week, then the fan started making a noise and never stopped!!! - same as previous
Cons: I didnt buy this on Newegg, but this item was taken directly out of the box and hooked up only to find that the fans don't work at all. My PS3 will function fine while it is inline, so it has power but the fans will not budge. The factory makes too many mistakes for me. Needless to say its chinee...
Pros: When it was working it pulled a good amount of air and I would have been happy with how easy it was to install and the decent price, but now I'm pretty disappointed :/
Cons: Had this for about 4-5 days when I tuned on my PS3 and two of the fans started making a horrible noise. I could remedy this by giving it a tap the first two or three times but now it doesn't stop.
