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. :)
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.
Looks cool, gameplay is garbage with it though.
The overall visual appeal is great, but this distracts from other issues. Such as stiff analog sticks, which were advertised as "precision control."
Also the placement of the left analog stick is very confusing for Play-Station user's. Size is also an issue, it is very small. "Even for a child's hands." Overall, even though it look's great. "I would recommend NOT buying this product." My Rating- 1/10
Bad connection and breaks easily
I maybe bought 2 of these in total as far as I can remember because I liked the glowing features and the clear casing, but this product is atrocious. Constantly getting disconnected if I go afk for a few minutes and sometimes I have to reset the connection by unplugging the USB plug in. Not only is that bad, but the plastic used to make it is even worse. It can barely survive a 2 ft. drop without cracking or something inside coming loose. I would highly recommend buying a generic Sony controller than this.
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
Havn't used it yet but i have extremely high hopes for a great looking controller that should give a great performance.
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
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.
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.
