  • Good controller for the price, but don't expect much

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    - Just like a PS3 original controller
    - Can be synced to PC and Android
    - Great for playing plataforming and racing games
    - All buttons seem to be pressure sensitive

    Cons:

    - Analogs not very precise (they tend to snap to the usual 8 directions)
    - Unstable on PC (paired wireless seamlessly for a week then never again)
    - Kinda hard to get to work on Android. If you're having problems with Sixaxis Pairing Tool, remember to press the PS button before pairing.
    - Triggers not very precise, big dead zones

    OtherThoughts:

    - Although some precision problems, should work ok for most games
    - I did not tested it on PS3 (because I don't have one)
    - I did buy it for using with PC and Android, and I'm fairly pleased, it took me some time and effort but i've managed to succeed in both cases.

    Bottomline:

    - If you're buying to sync with PC, better check compatibility issues first. Try to borrow one from a friend, even a PS3 original controller can be used, since they behave pretty much alike when it comes to bluetooth pairing
    - If you're buying for android, download the app that checks for compatibility and/or borrow a controller and test. Keep in mind that it wont work via USB, only via Bluetooth
