Not as well built as the Dualshock 3
on 22 May 2014
Ergonomically this is a great controller,
However, after a month or so of gaming every other day, the rubber grip on the left analog stick gradually began to wear off, and a few weeks later it had worn off completely
And, just now after having owned it for six months, the R2 trigger hinge/spring has broken, resulting in it not springing back up. (Bear in mind I am not the type of person that throws controllers around.)
The first issue can be resolved by buying thumb grips to place over the analog sticks, but as far as I'm aware no replacement part can be purchased for the R2 and L2 triggers.
It's a fantastic controller to use, just a massive shame that the durability of some of the parts is very poor, unlike most Sony products.
