Summary: i purchased this controller based solely on the fact that it's styled like an Xbox 360 controller, which I have always preferred over Sony's DualShock Controllers. The controller has worked with no issues for several months now, and overall feels much sturdier than the standard DS3.
The cable is NOT hardwired & so the cable can easily be swapped out when it fails

Summary: The rugged construction highly surpasses the flimsy dualshock controllers. The Start, Select, L2 & R2 buttons are larger & MUCH easier to use. For Battlefield players this is a serious improvement over the stock Sony gear.
