1 out of 5 eggsFeels Good.

Pros: The controller has all the features of the standard PS3 controller with a nicer feel that is easy to grip. The L2 and R2 triggers are better as well.

Cons: The left analog sticks when pressed to the right and will stay stuck until moved. The deadzones are also very bad. The left analog cannot reach the upper left corner no matter how much you push. That means you can only walk in that direction in games that require you to push the analog all the way to run.

Other Thoughts: A nice design and comfortable feel is ruined by poor deadzones making unsuitable for any gaming needing analog sensitivity to move. I had read others had this problem but I was hoping it had been fixed.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrid deadzone

Pros: Feels comfortable, good grip, lets you have a 360 style controller for your ps3

Cons: Horrible deadzone, makes playing anything almost impossible. It also has connection problems because its not a bluetooth controller its only wireless. I sent this back and got an xcm cross battle instead. Far superior to this controller.

5 out of 5 eggsGibson75

Pros: For those seeking the xbox 360 controller feel for FPS but are tired their xbox system failures like me and have turned to the Ps3, there is no better choice i have found than this controller. NO dead zone, analog is accurate and responsive, grip texture is good, d-pad not feel cheap or get stuck like some lesser knock-off controllers. Works perfect for FPS (thats all i play), no dead zone, precision movement and aiming is possible, no lag. Re-chargeable battery has long life. Red back light is cool.

Cons: some not like it that cant turn on ps3, but i don't care at all, just want a good controller thats reliable...

Other Thoughts: I bought two, the more expensive wireless one with the rechargeable feature feels better than the one that is wireless with AAA batteries, but thats just a personal preference to the soft rubbery texture versus the harder texture of the less expensive model.

1 out of 5 eggsSteer clear!

Pros: * Very comfortable, I mean VERY ergonomic and well designed.

* At the moment they are the closest thing you can get to a 360 controller on the PS3 without buying the wired adapter.

* The buttons light up, just in case you recently suffered massive brain damage and can't remember where the triangle, square, circle and X buttons are in the middle of the night.

* As soon as I picked it up I really loved everything about it, feels almost identical to an XBOX 360's controller.

* Nice solid feel, light but solidly put together. No creaking when applying pressure, etc...

Cons: * Ridiculous amount of dead zone, which is uneven--more in other thoughts.

* I guess Sony must have a patent on BlueTooth controller technology since you need to plug in the enclosed RF USB dongle.

* You cannot turn the PS3 on by pressing the home button.

* I can't get over how the embarrassing size of the dead zone (almost 1/2 and inch!) makes this beautiful design worthless!

* The custom grip might feel like a cheese grater in some hands.

* You will not be able to put up with the dead zone, this controller will curse you with an insurmountable handicap if you decide to buy it.

* OK, so I complain about the dead zone in three bullet points, four with this one... Yes, it's that bad.

Other Thoughts: I never had to RMA anything from NewEgg, this will be my first.

I really wanted to love this controller, I am currently playing on a DreamGear Shadow 6, which I full-heartedly recommend, if you're willing to take it apart and shave off some parts of the analog stick which rubs on internal parts...

But I digress, back to this thing. The dead zone is worse when tilting the right stick to the left. Dead zone is unacceptable to begin with, but an uneven dead zone means that the flaw that crippled this piece of hardware is flawed. Think about that for a second.

Nyko is coming out with a controller named "Raven" which has a 360-style analog stick placement, that will be my next buy. From NewEgg of course.

Off I go to RMA this beautiful, very light paper weight just after 10 minutes with it on Battlefield Bad Company 2.

5 out of 5 eggsWORKS GOOD

Pros: Buttons light up its got rubbery grips its the same size as the xbox 360 controller

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I just got this controller yesterday and it seems to be a good controller its the same size as the Xbox 360 controller and bigger than the Shadow 6 controller I got this controller after the USB Dongle on the Shadow 6 controller went out and the buttons were sticking when I got the BD&A controller I tryed the Shadow 6 before I trashed it but now it works But I think this BD&A controller is a better controller
