PowerA Mini Pro Elite Wireless PS3
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

2 out of 5 eggs Buy at your own risk 06/28/2013

This review is from: PowerA Mini Pro Elite Wireless PS3

Pros: The small design is perfect for smaller hands. The stick positions are more like a 360. It looks cool. The lights on the controller are default off and can be turned on and off. Feels solid.

Cons: Battery in the thing was dead on arrival and has never charged. Few other online reviews have similar stories. It can be used if it's plugged into a USB port (any usb port, doesn't need to be the PS3.) The wireless dongle is required to be plugged into the PS3. It can't wake the PS3 with the home button press like an official controller.

Other Thoughts: I bought this from a local B&M and all I can say is it works with a lot of ifs and not at all as advertised. Two stars because it kind of works. Will update this review or post a new one if swapping batteries is possible.

The controller indicators flash while "charging" and not designated as in use.

Pros: > Crisp Screen
> No page turn flashing
> Large Book format support
> Read and listen to music at the same time
> Responsive page turns
> Buttons are solid
> When viewing pictures, they are gray scaled very well
> Gif support includes animated gifs, (don't expect super fast gifs or large gifs to change frames at the same speed as your desktop)
> Ok audio quality, worth not using 2 devices while reading & listening to music
> 5 eggs because it works exactly as described in the specs and is a solid non-e-ink reader.

Cons: > Features are now lacking compared to similarly priced e-readers.

Other Thoughts: With recent price cuts with the Kindle and Nook I can not recommend this product. At the time of my purchase the Kindle and Nook were much higher in price and the lacking features warranted the price difference. Now the Kindle and Nook can be had for a similar price with the added features of WiFi, 3G (some models), book reading, direct access to online stores, web access, etc.

If the price of this e-reader drops below $100 it will be a eliminate my 1 con since its features and price will be comparable to other popular e-readers.
