Gioteck PS3 HF-2 Bluetooth Wireless Controller
THIS PRODUCT ISTRULY AMAZING IT CHANGED HOW I PLAY
THIS IS AS GOOD AS ITS GONNA GET YOU JUST HAVE TO GET IT FOR ALSO SUCH A CHEAP PRICE IT IS JUST GREAT
I bought this for myself and it's horrible. Mainly because im not used to the feel, but the features too, bluetooth? How does a controller have bluetooth? Doesnt make sence. Also the ablitity to sitch what R1, R2 and what L1 and L2 do complete screws up the controller. i hate this controller to death.
Perfect With One Simple Mod
I have always loved the 360 controller and even more so the "Duke" for the original Xbox. This HF-2 has a great smooth feel to it and the placement of the sticks feels exactly like the 360. I really, really like the R1 and L1 bumper placements once you get used to triggering them with the back of your second knuckle. Like others have said, hook it up to your PC and change the setting to FPS (sensitive) for minimal dead zones. Another mod I made that turned this controller into a perfect setup for me was buying two grey 360 analog sticks off of eBay for a few bucks and replacing the stock ones. Other than opening up the controller to install them, no other modification is needed. The slots are identical on both sticks. Now it feels almost no different than the 360 controller and I like the looks better as well. The stock sticks are too hard and the raised slits dig into your fingers and just aren't comfortable long term. Great controller stock, but perfect with the 360 sticks.
good but some flaws needs work
i enjoy this product and like its versitility and feel but it dose have flaws it is not very easy to update and the d pad isint so great but for the price i think any fps fan wanting to improve their game should buy this controller
Would be great but terrible lag
I have terrible lag trying to play online with new lithium ion rechargeable batteries. They make no difference. Sucks because the controller is great otherwise - It's feel and design are really good but the lag makes it unusable.
Recommend for fps lovers, otherwise don't bother
First off, be sure to update the firmware and change to the FPS setting.
1. Amazing feeling in FPS games like Call of Duty once you get used to it.
2. Concave analog sticks
3. Awesome looking, better than both 360 and DS3 controllers but that's just my opinion.
1. Although there seems to be no deadzones, the analog sticks are not as soft&free going as those on DS3.
2. The bumper buttons feel awkward, you have to press it with the second knuckle on index finger.
3. The face buttons are sticky, although I haven't' found that this affected my gameplay, in menus & navigations, often they weren't responsive so I had to press them hard again. And because of this, this controller is NOT for button smashing games.
Love this controller. As an Xbox 360 owner, I loath the standard PS3 controller and have been looking for one that was similar to the 360. The HF-2 hits the nail right on the head! It's like they designed the exact controller that I have been thinking about. The flip switch is awesome for games like Uncharted, where using the bumpers (L1, R1) to shoot and aim (makes no sense to me) was the only choice. Absolutely no delay when aiming for me, so I don't know where others are getting that from.
Great, with only one small flaw
This controller is absolutely amazing. I love its design and its rapid fire function which really helped me online on Call of Duty, Medal of Honor, and the many other shooters that I own. However, the only flaw with this controller is its reaction time. I thought this was only happening because battery life was low, but sometimes you will get a little lag even on full charge. Besides that, this controller is great.
Took a chance and it paid off.
Finaly a great working xbox 360 layout controller for the ps3.
I updated the fireware from Giotecks site for FPS, worked great, no lag.
I did play for awhile with the controller set to normal, with no problems, so i tried it on high. Turned out really good, no dead spots, no lag in any of the buttons. Onley trigger that i do not like, is the L1, its the placement of it.
I am using the controller as a wired controller with the Gioteck 10 foot usb cable and there is no lag at all.
I have a Power A Pro Elite controller that i liked until i tried this one, the Power A has alittle bit of button and trigger lag compared to this controller, the Goiteck responds just like a good sony brand controller.
Its my opinion, that people using batteries in this controller and who are getting lag or weird game play, buy better batteries, you need something like lithium ion rechargeables to work the blue tooth connection, all the button pushing and triggers. Regular batteries right off the self at stores are most times months old or just plain cheap junk half charged or nearly dead batteries when new.
I like this controller so much i am ordering a spare.
This is the best non sony controller i have ever tried.
for mw3, it works ok offline and in private parties but if tried to play online it has significant laaaaaaag. i turn and few seconds later he turns.i applied the update to fps and no problem solved. emailed cust support and they said theres nothing else that can be done,so its going back. has a nice rapid fire function and feels better than the ps3 controller too bad doesnt work online. and you need recharge able batteries because it wont charge via the usb, the usb i only to do the update, weak!
