This review is from: PDP Afterglow Wired Controller - Blue (PS3) (Accessory)
This is by far the best third party controller I have come across. I was a bit dubious at first giving that the button layout resembles a 360 pad which im not used to, but its really comfortable and takes no time to adapt. Its a tad smaller than a Sony pad but its very well built. The analog sticks, buttons and triggers are so smooth, in fact just as good as the Sony original. It has vibration and comes with good length of wire. The LED has three settings on, off, and rumble activated. There are two things which prevent this from being a true replacement to a Sony pad. The first is that the home button will not start the PS3 when in standby. The second is the pad has no Sixaxis. But, the positives certainly outweigh the negatives. This is an excellent controller with great looks & for any one tired of wasting money on cheaply made third party controllers that never work properly. I'd highly recommend giving this a go.
