Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: PS3 Eagle Eye Mouse and Keyboard Converter (Accessory)
I have been a computer gamer since 1983, BTW I'm 60 yoa, and am extremely competent with a mouse and keyboard. I had bought the PS3 about 3 years ago as a Blue Ray player as I knew I was worst than rubbish with the consoles controller. Within the last couple of weeks I saw several YouTube videos about this device and decided to give it a go.
This converter is fantastic! I was extremely sceptical about how this piece of equipment would work, but it does exactly as they claim. Let's just say it brought my time in MW2 "The Pit" down from 2mins 11secs to 38secs within a day.
EEC (Eagle Eye Controller) has no mouse lag (as far as I can tell) and is very easy to set up. You do need a computer of course and if your lazy key/mouse setup files can be downloaded from the net. The new version 3.0 firmware enables even more precise dead zones and sensitivities to be set up to get it just right for you.
Note that not all keyboards may work with the EEC. My logitech G15 didn't so I bought a Cyborg V5. Compatible keyboards and mice are itemised at Penguin Uniteds' forum. Don't despair as a PS2 keyboard connector with a usb adapter works. I've tried it.
Many people ask why go PS3 gaming when you could play the game on a computer. My reasons were that all PS3's are identical as far as hardware is concerned. So no turning down eye candy to have a reasonably fast game. It also takes hardware differences out of the equation as regards "lag".
I am absolutely delighted with the EEC. 10 out of 10 for everything.
I've had it for 4 days and am still putting the final touches to my settings.
I also bought the Logitech G500 mouse with the EEC. A great mouse perfect when paired with the EEC.
If you want to game on a PS3 with a mouse and keyboard buy the EEC. You will NOT be dissapointed.
