This controller is basically identical to the new dual shock controllers only due to legal copyright laws the rumble was not fitted to these earlier models.
Later this was added look up dual shock, however, this controller is lighter and slightly longer battery life due to the missing Rumble devices. IT DOES HOWEVER, have all the other features and is cheaper for a second controller because who cares if your friend doesn't have the Rumble.
Six axis, etc. has not been changed on the newer controllers so a cheaper option if you need to save a few pounds.
I only gave it a four as the new dual shock has RUMBLE so this looses 1 star.
Still an excellent controller and Sony again make a good D-pad for fighting games. I would definitely buy a second hand one of these over any 3rd party new controllers.

I purchased this so called reconditioned unit for my Nephew for Christmas and when he went to use it one of the joysticks would not spring back into the central position.

As there was no packaging outside of a jiffy bag I strongly suspect that this unit is not reconditioned but second hand. I have emailed the seller but does not respond.

DON'T BUY FROM THIS SELLER - IT'S A CON!!!!!!!!!

The product is picture as a SONY controller. The Thing that arrived is cheap flimsy made in china knock off. I am very angry and feel very, very ripped off. It is imported by a third party from china.

This controller is perfect for all your gaming needs! Fits perfectly in hands, and it isnt a struggle ir a stretch reach any buttons or triggers! Works with iOS devices (Jailbroken), for MFI games, and works amazingly on PC as a mouse or game controller. Very much worth buying.

This was an excellent bit of kit, people generally don't see the point in paying a premium when there is a cheaper chinese clone on the market. After owning both a cheap copy and the original, the original comes out on top everytime in terms of durability, reliability and even comfort. The batteries are much better at sustaining charge and these tend to take a few more knocks then the cheaper clones!

This controller is NOT an original Sony item. But it does work ok. The only two issues I have is the SIXAXIS didn't work on a game but did on others so I put that down to the game. But even so, the buttons are a bit sluggish/sticky compared to an original Sony controller. The seller was very helpful and replied instantly to any concerns I had.
