PS3 Afterglow Wireless Control
This controller works perfectly fine, no problems with it so far. It is very confortable to hold, and they give you nice finger rests. It looks REALLY cool at night when all the lights on the controller are on, if you want to save battery life, you can turn off the lights. My only complaint with this controller is that it has a slightly bigger dead zone than the ps3/xbox 360 controller. In case you didn't know, the dead zone is how far you can move your analog sticks without them responding. Not a huge con, but it is definitely noticeable (but still useable) in some fps games. If you are the intense, get the best performance out of it kind of guy, then i would suggest you get the sony ps3 controller. Overall, for its price, it is a very useable, confortable, and cool looking controller. Hope this helped. :)
Visually Pleasing, and that's about it.
I bought an afterglow controller because it caught my attention with it's glowing capability. In short, the glowing capability is nice but not useful or wise to use. It cuts on battery power and is not really useful for anything other than looking cool, which it does. One thing I did like was the Xbox layout. I liked the analog stick where the D-Pad is. It was more comfortable. However, what really makes me frown upon this controller is its durability. It cracked maybe a week and a half after I purchased it. Not too much later after that, the crack grew until the controller became uncomfortable to use. I would not buy an Afterglow controller again. My advice is to pay the extra $30, and just buy a Dualshock 3 because it will last longer.
These controllers are awesome. I have two of them and played a lot of games. I have no issues what so ever. the analog sticks fit my hand better and they are easy to sync and love that they are wireless. i don't have any connection issues and they has long battery life. Just like any after glow you can turn the light off or on are intermittently. the controller is durable and not going to break unless you throw it across that room. Great controller.
joy stick is incompatible
In this controller the joy stick is incompatible with my current games. The forward, back, left, right all work. If you do a 45* angle the joy stick responds like you are only pushing the stick a tiny bit. This causes games to do a slow walk in those directions. The rest of the controller is fine. This makes some games very annoying to play.
will not stay connected
the controller actually works pretty well and has great response time, when it's connected. i played with it for about 2 hours and had to point it at my ps3 about 6 or 7 times because it kept disconnecting. i decided to try it because i liked the reverse analog sticks, but i returned it the next day.
i like it i use mine all the time for mw3 i have no problems with it at all
DO NOT PURCHASE
This controller is terrible. It cuts out constantly. If it is left idle for more than 25 seconds, it stops working. If it is more than 8' from the wireless USB adapter that it requires to work, it stops working. The charge time on it is shorter than most controllers. The left joystick is offset from where it is on every other controller manufactured by anyone. You cant turn the PS3 on an off from it, and the buttons are not nearly as responsive as on other brands. The controller is cheaper than some, but it is also clearly cheaply made as well. Dont buy this product.
Great price good for FPS
I have the wired one for more then a year now and really like it I just got the wireless today and same thing . I know the buttons arent as good as first party controllers But the L1/2 R1/2 are fine . I got rid of my xbox cause of system probs over and over But I miss the controller . I hate the PS3 controller slippery dumb triggers that slant in so your fingers slip off and the sticks no indent to place your thumbs. The afterglow is perfect for people that like the xbox controller . The real key for me is that the sticks are GREAT!!! very responsive . Ive tried alot off third party contollers but its always the same you have to move the rigth stick way to far before it moves your aim . Not with the afterglow . So if u want a cheap very good xbox style FPS controller buy this now
I bought this new and the right joystick sticks in the left position. I don't know if this is the case for all these, but this doesn't help sell my appeal for third party controllers.
Like an x box controller but it takes time to get used to. Its great for some one who plays in the dark and in joys Fps.
