5 out of 5 eggsComplaining?

Pros: -Price
-Color
-Feel
-Charge

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: I got this thing, my 3rd PS3 controller, for $40. Best price I've seen to date for any PS3 controllers. It camed fully charged and lasted about 8-10 hrs before needing to be plugged in.

I don't know how somebody is "taking care" of their equipment and breaking them in two weeks? I've had my other two controllers for over a year. One has trouble with the L3 button now (because of all the sprinting on MW2 I did) but the other is in perfect condition. I've had friends whose remotes have started sticking here and there, but it's mainly because they ate and then played numerous times. If you take care of the remotes, they will not break or stick. They are the highest quality remote you can buy, so if you are looking elsewhere, you are dumb.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes Not Hold Charge

Pros: Quick delivery

Cons: Ordered one each of two colors and neither holds a charge. Have had two black controllers for years with no problems. Will return for exchanges -- hopefully new ones will work.

3 out of 5 eggsps3 controller

Pros: Love the color

Cons: After 3 weeks of use, the R3 button started not activating when pressed. Then at other times it was overly sensitive.

Other Thoughts: I love the ps3 but these new controllers don't seem to last long. I'm very gentle with my stuff and maintain all of my equipment. Even the controller that came with the system didn't last 2 weeks after purchase AND I bought my ps3 on 2//9/11

5 out of 5 eggsClassic PS controller

Pros: Durability
Accuracy
Grip

Cons: The triggers don't feel as clean as other controllers. They need to be indented as well for better grip. The analog sticks should be indented for better grip as well. The left analog stick and d-pad need to be switched.

Other Thoughts: Get with the times, Sony! You're the only controller maker that doesn't have the analog placement correct yet. Sega did it right with the NiGHTS controller like 15 years ago, and you can't do it right still? Fanboys will disagree, but I'm sure once it was the correct way, they'd prefer it.

I still give it 5 eggs because there isn't a better PS controller, and my opinion doesn't affect the overall quality of the controller. It still deserves 5 eggs.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Solid, works well, and Nice color.

Cons: I know not everyone feels this way, but I really wish they would switch the D pad and left stick. I always enjoy my xbox control more because of this, but other than that, it fits the hands well.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's a Sony

Pros: Official Sony controller. Cheaper than in stores.

Cons: None really. It performs just as well as the sony controller that came with the PS3

Other Thoughts: I got this for my brother in law, who spent $40 getting a "Monster" branded HDMI cable, but then cheaped out and got a $20 MadCatz controller. He used the MadCatz everytime we played so that I couldn't complain about the disadvantage, but it drove me INSANE!

5 out of 5 eggsReplacement order

Pros: I've had a PS3 since 2008 and am just now ordering more controllers to replace the first two that I had. For the cost, that is a great value considering how much time I have spent using these controllers.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: For those of you concerned about a cord... It is just a mini-USB cable and the PS3 only has two USB slots so you can only have two. I use an old Blackberry computer cable as my secondary charging cable.
