PS3 Afterglow Controller
It worked great for a while! After a few months in COD it wouldn't let me run once in a while. Now all it does is make me turn in a circle with my gun pointed down. You get what you pay for. Over all, a cool controller but it does break down sooner than other controllers.
I've had to return this controller twice due to the controller buttons breaking inside the housing. This controller comes with a plug in USB wireless adapter, which is just as poor quality as the controller itself. A month after the last return of defective controller the USB wireless adapter has died as well. This is an extremely poor quality controller, and I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone.
On the good side, the LED in the controller as well as the USB wireless adapter glows quite brightly. That's about the only good, or even interesting, thing that I can say about this product.
good but wont last
this a good controller for about 3 months then things start to not work. i bought two of these and they stooped working at 3 months
Good at first, does not last long
This controller seemed like a great buy when i saw it at best buy. Only $30 bucks for a controller that looks more comfortable than a 360 or Dualshock, and it did not disappoint. It was always very comfortable, particularly for me because I have large hands. The only design flaw is an odd ridge on the back that forces you to position your fingers in a way other than you may be used to from dualshock controllers, but this is very easy to adapt to. As for the shoulder buttons, well... they're OK, not great. i love how the L2 and R2 curve up for a more secure grip, but the L1 and R1 sometimes get stuck down when you press them, causing you to waste all your ammo in any FPS. The sticks are good, but I have trouble with the L3 and R3 functions because they don't stay on, you have to keep them pressed down to continue sprinting in MW3, whereas you only have to quickly click them on a dualshock. the sticks are also more resistant than on a dualshock, but are still easy to use. The glow feature is nice, but it can distract you at the worst of times, especially when you set it to flash as the controller rumbles. overall, it's not as durable or reliable as a dualshock, but it makes a good temporary replacement, if you're only keeping it for about 5 months. even so, I don't regret buying it, I like it enough to overlook the flaws.
it is a horrible controller the sensitivity is to extreme but the design is okay but in overall this remote sucks DON'T BUY IT
After breaking my dualshock controller from tampering i decided to try a much cheaper controller. The sensitivity is too high, it has a xbox layout which feels awkard in your hand, and the settings are annoying. The light up when vibration is distracting and the normal light up setting is too. But its not as bad as the other wired controllers out there. Overall if you have the money spring for a dualshock if not get this.
Cheap but not built to last.
I got one of these this past christmas as a gift. Though it wasn't an official PS3 controller, I was willing to give it a shot ( even with the odd apparently "better" location of the left stick) as I know controllers are ridiculously over priced. It worked fine up until just now. The right stick started getting stuck in the left, down, and right position and the only thing I could safely do was push it up...not very helpful. It didn't last very long and to be honest, I wasn't a fan of the left stick being shifted (didn't feel right). Not terribly happy with this controller. It looks cool with the lights but that doesn't really matter if it doesn't work.
2 years ago I wanted to buy a new ps3 controller. I decided to get this one because it was cheaper and the idea of glow-in-the-dark looked cool because I play in the dark. I got the green one (even though I wanted the red one). It was great. It was responsive, and every time the lights worked. One day I was playing Black Ops. I wanted to throw a flashbang so I pressed L2. Then the L2 button broke off. That made the rest of the round a little harder. Now, whenever I want to throw a tactical item, I have to reach into the slot and push a little trigger. The product is still good overall though.
I Personally think dat this Item Is great.. But.. Yes there is a But To All Of Dis Folks.. When i First Bought it I Got The Blue One.. Lights Are Bright So What. Ehh.. On the Blue One..One Of The Lights Busted out on me and thats its other then that I Got No complaints.. I Have a Red one too been useing it for 5 months now and still Works Like New..On The Red Controller The Lights Are Not As Bright As The Blue ..
Overall Quality Product
I purchased one of these controllers for my PC (in blue). It was detected as an Xbox360 controller without issue. I use it primarily for driving as a kb/mouse just doesn't cut it for me. It's been in use for several months without issues. Feels good in your hand, decent weight. I wouldn't suggest throwing it at a wall though. The switching of the controller stick/pad set up is no big deal. If you can't adapt you fail. I discovered an interesting feature that I haven't seen mentioned. My LED's were not lighting up. While trying to figure out the problem I noticed a button on the bottom of the controller. Thinking it was some form of reset button and hoping it would fix my problem, I pressed it. Lo and behold it was a switch to turn the LED's On/Off. Amazing! If your LED's are not working, depress the switch on the bottom and see if that doesn't fix it.
