4 out of 5 eggsTall Sticks

Pros: I am new to gaming, so be warned-I might be wrong. I will try my best here.
-large size
-2 configurations to choose when making initial purchase, PS3 or Xbox regarding placement of the joy sticks and the buttons
-tall sticks(I think it's a couple millimeters taller?)

Cons: I had to slow down sensitivity to get precise aim, but that made panning slow as molasses. A big problem when snipping and looking around, when speed is crucial. I hope to overcome this with time and practice. and bring sensitivity back up.

Other Thoughts: I am worried that the "O" button isn't all-ways working, could be a epidemic problem. Because I have the same problem on 1 of 2 of my PS3 controllers.

I wish I had stayed with the PS3 set-up, Thats what I learned on and using Xbox configuration has no advantage, it's just a matter of preference.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: -Comfortable
-Switch R2 L2 and R1 L1 buttons
-Heavy feel
-Cheaper than sixaxis

Cons: -Super sticky analog sticks, makes it almost impossible to play FPS games
- Dpad tends to stick

Other Thoughts: If you want to use to play COD or any other shooters then it would not be good. However games like little big planet and gran turismo are fine.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Controller

Pros: Comfort, Craftmanship, and Price! Better than any 3rd party controller I've ever had in 25+ years of gaming.

Cons: Its a 3rd party controller.

Other Thoughts: Not perfect, might be the best 3rd party controller for the PS3 ever.

4 out of 5 eggsNYKO Raven Wireless Controller PS3

Pros: cheap worth the price respond good the wight feel great good for FPS the button switch is a good thing and works for PC with no Rumble and also great around the hand for sweaty hands

Cons: the d-pad too small part of the r1 button get stuck but works so this is not good for third person shooter players dont I like the xbox triggers but works and this controller is no good for fighting games. The bird in the middle looks like a chicken instead of a raven

Other Thoughts: Nyko focus too much on making this controller a FPS controller i can live with the bottom trigger but need to fix the top

5 out of 5 eggsPretty good controller

Pros: The texture of the controller is noce...no slipping when your hands sweat.
Little bigger and heavier than the DS3, which makes it more comfortable.
No dead zones that I have noticed so far.
Can charge off any usb device (computer).

Cons: Can't turn on system with controller.

Other Thoughts: I'm pretty happy with this controller so far. It feels good, has a nice weight to it, and all the buttons function correctly. I like that you can switch the function of R1/2 and L1/2 to make the 2s the triggers. Haven't noticed and dead zones or lags like i read in reviews. And for $20, its a great deal!
