5 out of 5 eggsBetter than other ps3 controllers

Pros: Comfortable
Easy Button Presses
Long Battery Life

Cons: IT broke in a year after dropping it at least 20 times

Other Thoughts: I can see why SONY decided to discontinue this controller soon. This controller was the best ps3 controller I ever had. The buttons were extremely easy to press but never felt mushy. It gave me an advantage in fighting games where fast button presses are needed. I'm not sure if this is true or not but it seemed like this controller lasted much longer in terms of battery life than my other controllers. The deep red color was fantastic looking too.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Sale price was about $15 less than regular retail, plus Newegg offers free shipping. This was an excellent deal.

For those people disappointed about the lack of a usb to mini cable: No Sony controllers purchased through Newegg or any other retailer will contain such a cable. \Any generic cable from e.g. mp3 players, digital cameras, etc. will also work.

Cons: None. Works well.

Other Thoughts: I've replaced a few controllers and I've always paid full retail. If Newegg continues to offer these deals, I hope to never pay full price for a controller again (or for that matter any of a myriad of other products).

5 out of 5 eggsi know its just a ps3 controller but...

Pros: Sometimes I go a month without charging these things. Granted I only play like 2 hours a day, but still, I can't remember the last time I had it connected to the USB port.

Cons: Apparently you can't launch your controller across the room and expect it to still work.

Other Thoughts: Best prices on the web here.

4 out of 5 eggsDeep is not Deep

Pros: Great controller. It is a Sony licensed product and the quality that you would expect from it is matched.

Cons: The "Deep Red" that is is supposed to be is more of a bright red. One reviewer said that it is darker than in the photo with metallic specs. This is not the case. The picture is exactly what I received. I was hoping for the Deep Red that I had seen in other pictures, but oh well.

Other Thoughts: Great controller, worth the discounted price!

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It's from sony. It's a terrific controller.

Cons: Didn't come with a USB cable. Not a HUGE problem but, I didn't read anything telling me it wasn't going to be in there.
I may have skimmed over something telling me that they're wasn't but, it was a somewhat unpleasant surprise when there wasn't a USB cable in the box.

Other Thoughts: The light does shine through with the red controller, but that is just a gripe.
