PS3 Afterglow Wireless Control
Bought a controller a few months, even though a button went out it's still a great controller I had ever used when it comes to playing games.
Product won't work at all
After numerous attempts to get the controller to connect, I've given up. There is no reset button which is ridiculous and the controller, despite reseting the system numerous times, will not connect. I'll be returning this immediately.
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. :)
Wish it worked
The lights are cool (especially with the rumble mode) but the product is simply broken. I bought a blue one from Gamestop and the right analog stick wouldn't let me look anywhere except up. I exchange it the next day for the same color. The analog stick worked fine but the connectivity was terrible. I couldn't stand 3 feet away without disconnecting or having delays. The design was perfect though! Beautiful, non-blinding LEDs, and the compact feel was better. I hope they make a AP3 and get it right because I still want one. :(
Better Than the Sony PS3 Controller
This controller is wireless and is better than the default PS3 controller the system comes with, and it's not as expensive. Some might steer clear of it, because of the design, being similar to the XBox controller design, but I like it a lot. Switching the directional pad and left analog stick makes playing Call of Duty a much better experience in my opinion, because your thumbs won't be so cramped and the controller is smaller, so your hand won't hurt as bad. I was able to play for over 3 hours without even having to take a break and give my hand a rest. Overall the design is good, and I love how you can turn the lighting on and off. Afterglow products will never steer you wrong.
Solid design, but a bad gimmick
First off, this controller works great. It's comfortable and I really liked that the L stick and D pad have switched positions. The only issue I had is with the controllers main selling point: the light effect. While the controller lighting up is cool you get tired of it pretty quick and end up turning it off. This wouldn't be so bad but the usb receiver also has a light in it and it's very bright. The entire time I'm playing, out of the corner of my eye I see this super bright light coming off the usb receiver. It was just way too distracting and I had to trade it in. If I had a usb port on the back of my ps3 I might have held on to this controller, but I don't, so I'm just gonna trade it in.
Great Controller. Just Don't Drop It.
I got this controller because I used the xbox360 version at my friend's house and it was great. I bought this around Easter time and it just stopped working yesterday after being dropped, thrown, and stepped on. Like most controllers, once you drop them they're done. After a few times dropping it , by accident, a piece of plastic snapped or near the R2 button making it annoying to use. It was a great controller overall.
Xbox style controller
The controller fits comfortably in my hands, I like the controller a lot more than the regular old play station design. This controller is like an xbox 360 controller, I personally like this because I went from being an xbox 360 player to a ps3 and now I don't have to get used to a new style of controller. I say buy it, its wireless, It does have a USB slot so I would recommend this as a second controller. The design is a bit small so if you have huge hands you probably won't like this controller. I enjoyed the fact that this is a cool looking controller and cost less than a regular used ps3 dual-shock 3 controller. This controller does vibrate in case anyone cares haha. Good 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
Bought the older version of controller for ps2, worked GREAT. Bought for ps3, SUCKS. Got home plugged it in it worked for about 3 hours, until it shut off. I plugged it back in but it did not reconnect even with full battery. Looked for reset button and lo and behold there isn't one! DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!! BUY ps3 CONTROLLER, ATLEAST THAT WORKS, AND HAS RESET BUTTON!
