I figured I would give this controller a shot. What the heck, right? WRONG! I found the controller relatively comfortable. I was immediately frustrated when I used it on COD4, the lights were somewhat of a distraction and the controller's response is poor at best. Here is the break down of what I found wrong with this controller: 1. Lights are a gimmick and a distraction. 2. L2 and R2 are set at a 45 degree angle and can only comfortably be used with your middle fingers. 3. L2 and R2's spring is quite a bit firmer than what I am used to. 4. L2 and R2 do not begin to register AT ALL until they are pressed 1/2 of the entire distance of what I believe to be 3/4 of an inch. (remember the springs are firm and set at a 45) 5. The sticks do not register until they are 1/3 of the way which gave it a slingshot effect making sneaking up on your prey (walking) all but impossible. On a lighter note, if you're willing to look past all of that, it's corded so you don't have to worry about batteries!

There are many problems with this controller, but to star i just have to say that it starts off ok but as it ages many more problems start. 1. Button response is very late, for example i played COD WAW with it and it just wouldn't work, the back triggers only work when you pushed them down all the way not like the Dualshock 3 controller where you could just ligtly push and it would fire, it is much much harder. 2. As it ages maybe a few days or maybe a month or 2 the buttons start to lock and you cant really push them in anymore. 3. When you buy the controller there is some grip on the back and that starts to shed off as well. 4.The back triggers can really only be used with the middle fingers, if you use them with your pointers it will take to much time to switch back and used the face buttons. I only used this controller maybe 8 times and these problems already started take my word and don't buy this controller only buy it if your life depends on it

I bought the afterglow controller about 2 weeks ago and i have not found any problems with it. For the price, it is a very good piece of equipment. The glow was very bright at first and slightly distracting but I quickly adjusted. Also there is a button on the back to turn the glow off, turn the rumble on and to turn both off. This controller is is slightly different from the normal sixaxis ones that come with the PS3. The L2 and R2 buttons are more like the xbox controller in that they curve out, making it easier to grip. The left stick and the D-pad also switch places. That took some time to get used to but after a few matches of Modern Warfare 2 I got the hang of it. The cable that came with it was long enough so I could keep my Playstation where it was. One bad thing was that it didn't work with some games that required the sixaxis controller but I got this as a spare so it wasn't a major issue. All in all it is a good controller for the price. It does what the Sony controllers do but with some flare and a cheaper price.

i dont know why all the other reviews are negative towards this product.i recently purchased this product looking for a cheap and well working controller.that is exactly what i recieved.this controller works perfect with all my games. its very comfortable,in fact,sometimes i prefer using it than my dualshock 3. the L2 and R2 triggers are spring with worries me about durablity,but they feel amazing. the controller has a ps button wich also works fine. the 1 major set back is the L3 and R3 buttons.u need to really push on the analog sticks to make them click which is really annoying in games like call of duty 4 and 5 where R3 is your knife button. the L1 and R1 buttons are perfect.Now the glow is another thing thats not that great. for example,if ur playing at night in a dark room,they kind of bug a little bit but in day u barely notice it. the design overall is great ( except the controller says gamestop on it which makes it look cheap).i really recommend this controller to anybody on a tight budget looking for a nice well working controller.
Rated 2 out of 10 by GrandShadow Not the best of choices.
This controller has some good things to it. yes sure it glows, but the glow after a while shines into your eyes and that messes you up on a game. Yea sure it has a great price and its so good, but only for so long. Within a month my controller was litterally breaking apart. I mean the handles busting into,buttons sticking, it sucked. People may say this controller is great but it really isnt. Although if your looking for a way to just get by u could get this controller. Trust me though it will only be so good for just so long. So guys srry to say but if u plan to buy this your wasting ur money in my opinion but a good controller would be the Logitech cordless precission controller, sure it takes up a usb place and sure it has bad signal but if u got a clear view with the playstation, then you will honestly have no prob. Its very durable, the buttons dont hang, Its a great controller for someone who cant really afford one.

To start, this controller is good for the price you pay. When you first get the controller, you were probably like me and everyone else and was wondering what was up with the L2 & R2 buttons. Once you get used to seeing them and feeling them, they wont be to bad. The buttons all respond fine, so don't worry about that, they always respond well and all the buttons (not any of the L&R buttons) are not hard to push and do not stick. The only problem with an of the controls is with the R3 analog. Knifing can be a little hard, but that is not the main problem. I noticed that it is very hard to line up your aimer when trying to throw a grenade in COD4. The aimer can really be controlled well so it makes it almost impossible to throw into a doorway, and really impossible to make it into a window. Overall, this controller is good. You get what you pay for, and at the end of the day the controller is pretty good.
Rated 9 out of 10 by JTP420 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.

I must say, this controller is terrible. I was under the impression that if i spent more money, i would have gotton better quality; well, i was VERY wrong. The responsivness of the L2/R2 is sluggish, and PS2 games (disk) played on a PS3 will not reconize this controller, and you'll be stuck at the "Please inster Dualshock 2 controller" screen. The lights on the controller are rather distracting, mainly when you're playing in a dark room, the LED lights on it are way too bright. This controller WAS ABSOLUTLEY NOT worth $29.99, i could have gotton a Madcatz controller for $20 that had features and worked on PS1/PS2 games. Really wish i would have purchased the madcatz controller. For those of you reading this, even if you dont play PS1/PS2 games, dont buy this. For games that require percision timing and skill, this controller is not what you want.

I wonder what people are doing to theirs that causes them to wear out so fast? Mine has been going strong for six months now. I prefer that it's wired because the wireless aftermarket units use a USB dongle which just introduces problems and takes a USB port anyway. I think using a USB dongle is ignorant and refuse to buy anything that requires it.First, a tip. The controller seems to self calibrate when plugged in. Make sure you aren't touching the controller when the PS3 is turned on. That accounts for many of the complaints about the sticks being off a hair. It's instinct to put your thumbs "at the ready" but resist it.The controller is a bit larger than the Dual Shock 3 but not too much so. It's comfortable for me but the DS is just a bit better suited for my hands. Mostly I say get it as an "extra" controller. How ever many players you have make this be the last one or two. It's wired so no worry about USB dongles, it's powered via wire so no worries about charging it and keeping it charged in storage, and it's cheap enough to leave some cash for games. The lack of Six Axis and Shock are the only sticking points and for many games that will be ok.
