SONY DUALSHOCK3 Wireless Controller Ceramic White
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great 12/10/2010

This review is from: SONY DUALSHOCK3 Wireless Controller Ceramic White

Pros: OEM Sony, nice feel, won't get clammy after a long session, Newegg fast shipping.

Cons: Had to type something in this field to submit.

Other Thoughts: Still working with my 40gb PS3 on 3.5 FW. Don't try to save $$ with the e*ay ones, a lot of the white ones are Hong Kong market versions and stopped working with US PS3s. The way to identify them is on the back of it, the CECHZC2x string, x = U on US market, HK on Hong Kong market.

Pros: This one works, newegg's RMA painless.

Cons: Doubts about longevity, PS3 installation somewhat in depth compared to other brands?

Other Thoughts: This is part 2 of my previous review, my RMA went through flawlessly and quickly, but that's what I expect from Newegg anyway. Received my new one and installed in my PS3, I'm not sure if all drives require a reflash of FW to the unit but this one did. The instructions that I saw from Sony and independent sites say to backup, install, then restore and you're on your way. My install took an additional step, I had to find a FW file, put that onto a USB stick (PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP) then reflash and finally restore. Before that was done my PS3 just displayed a FW not found message with no insight as to where to find one and the backup I made apparently didn't include it. The restoration took around an hour and a half with a 20GB restore file from my old drive, so plan accordingly. With that said, I'm happy with it so far.

Pros: remain to be seen

Cons: DOA out of the box, powers up but not seen by my PS3, PC, or external housing. My first Samsung, I should've known better and stuck with WD. Sent for RMA exchange. Will update with a good review hopefully.

Other Thoughts: I really should've known better, I used to be a mobile phone dealer and avoided Samsung like the plague, they always came back. Nothing but problems with them. If I was thinking clearly I would've done the RMA for money back and bought a Western Digital for my PS3. I still have my first WD drive from 7 years ago and it's still going strong in my Puppy Arcade box.
