Pros: I like the fact this is a HOTAS stick under $100. Most of the buttons are easy to press with an exception. the HAT on the top of the joystick is in a good place. I can easily change fire modes with the hat. Many of the throttle buttons are easy to press. The height of the stick is in a good place so I didn't need to adjust my chair or monitor. USB is about 8ft long from stick to plug.
Cons: The trigger is a big con to me. It is hard plastic. This means my index finger is pressing on the corner of the trigger for most of my play time. I cannot train myself yet to find a different part of the trigger, or use another finger to fire. The trigger feels like it should have been a two stage piece but the sensor was a cheaper model and only has one stage of firing. Because of the amount of distance the trigger takes to register, I cannot use butterfly presses. I wish I could calibrate it like you would on a good trigger calibrated paintball gun. The bottom of the sticks have plastic pads. This makes the stick move around if you start using the Yaw function on twisting the stick. I havn't had it come entirely off the desk so much I blame it for losses, but I did notice I kept rotating the stick counter clockwise. So, down was now 7 o'clock position.
Other Thoughts: I have not used the preset function to set up different profiles. I liked the resistance on the stick to start, but you can increase or decrease joystick resistance with a dial on bottom.
I might recommend another joystick with better trigger, or get a combo separately. I was new to joystick gaming for this century and wanted to update my relics. For $50 I can research other sticks and throttles for my space game ED.

Pros: Well It works and feels just like the standard Sony PS3 controller. The only deference is it doesn't say Sony on it.
Cons: This thing has zero charge out of the box. You need to let it charge up some before you use it. Don't try to charge it from your PS3 while you play straight out of the box ...that may cause your PS3 to turn off unexpectedly (at least it did for me). You need to get some charge on it first.
Other Thoughts: This thing is a Dualshock 3 clone. I compared the two in every way and they seem identical in both form and function. It paired up to my PS3 just the same as if it was a dualshock. It turns my PS3 on just like a dualshock. It feels like i'm using a dualshock in game. However, it's not priced like a dualshock! It's a good buy, and i'll probably pick up another one.

Pros: Feels just like an original PS3 controller Price is ridiculously low It can turn the system on/off just like the original PS3 controller Charges directly from the PS3 just like the original PS3 controller No USB dongle needed
Cons: Does not come with the USB cable to connect it to the PS3 for charging
Other Thoughts: This thing looks and feels and acts so much like an original PS3 controller, you cannot tell the difference between it and the original. Definitely worth the price.
