    Useful, even if only for one time

    posted by JohnoBoy on 12/13/2007 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    - Backup your PS2/PS memory cards on your PS3 HDD - Can be used as a controller adapter, even includes the 4 indicator lights and the "missing" PS button that aren't available on the old controllers - If you still use your old memory cards (for ex...
    Cons:
    - If you need it just to copy your saves to the PS3 than it's probably useless after the first day - Instructions on box are in...

    Useful

    posted by JohnoBoy on 09/21/2007 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    - Never a bad idea to have an extra charger - Almost identical to original (American) charger - Multi-voltage meaning no extra stepdown converter is required - Super light and small
    Cons:
    - US prongs means you still need a plug adapter to use in Europe
