Works great on PC – PS2-PS3 Controller Adapter Cable Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Windows 7 automatically installed the drivers and the controller worked immediately. All buttons and analog sticks register properly, also when they're used simultaneously. I noticed no input lag.
Cons:
It doesn't seem possible to use the controller's rumble or button pressure sensitivity functionality (on PC, at least). Might be possible with different drivers, don't know.
Other:
Haven't tried it on my PS3 yet. Works great on PC, though.
Bottomline:
I frequently use an Xbox 360 controller on my PC but in some cases I prefer a PlayStation controller. Using my PS3 controller on PC requires me to install the third-party MotionInJoy driver which is in my opinion rather shoddily put together and cumbersome to use. With this adapter I can just use trustworthy standard USB controller drivers. I have no complaints so far and I'm quite pleased with my purchase.
