I love this controller, it fits my grip perfectly and just because i love to play in the dark makes it more fun. The battery life is considerably of long durability. there is not much you can say about it but that it is a pretty eccentric addition to your gaming experience. I give it 5 stars and will most definitely recommended if you are the kind of person who likes cool gadget like this one.

The controller is fine. I am giving the rating not on the product, but the merchant. I am very disappointed with the means by which this product was shipped. Right on the main page for this product, there are pictures for the the retail packaging... that to me implies what I will get the product in... no such luck here. Nice, white, OEM box. Additionally, there is this very very sticky residue on the front of the controller that acetone would not even take off. If a product is used / out of retail... the description should say it, and if I buy it, I know the risk. To imply it is new in retail (by using the pictures) and not sending it that way, is misleading and dishonest.

I bought 3 of these controllers for various projects.
For Raspberry Pi (MAME) video games this works great, you can program each button or stick, and I got various games working that would not have work otherwise (i.e. Disc of Tron rotary control)

For the PS3 however it is hard to beat Sony brand controllers in games like Battlefield or Call of Duty.

It does have a great look and i have been able to use it on many systems with the usb dongle.

Glows brighter than expected, and works for it's price. I would buy another if a current controller broke. Some games are a little hard to play with switched analog stick and d-pad positions (ex: Uncharted). There is a little bigger dead zone on the analog sticks compared to the dualshock 3 controller, but when I'm playing i don't really notice it.

First off i play alot street fighter, particularly SSF4AE. I seen alot of reviews but no one ever really spoke about the D-Pad (directional pad). I for one use the d-pad i only use the analog when using Cammy or Fei Long with that being said the d-pad on this control is smoothe and + cross like which i prefer rather than the ps3's dual shock controller in which the d-pad is cut up into fours and i hate that design it was cool back in the day but even ps4 with follow that trend if i can use this controller on there i will but i will have to wait n see. The analogs are cool, the buttons are small pea size even but that not a factor all buttons are highly responsive. Gamestop sells it for 35 bucks the price here is better. I used to have trouble using the FADC (focus attack dash cancel) but not now, now i can accurately do shoryuken FADC then input ryu's metsu hadoken ultra easily. Bottom line if your looking for a good controller for fighting games you found it. Oh and the light up thing is cool too!

I recently had an accident at work which cost me my pinky and wedding finger on my left hand. Once my hand was good enough to play again the ps3 controller just felt very uncomfortable with the new way I have to position my hands. Its even more so that I have to extend my thumb to reach the analog stick. I already have the Afterglow controller for PC and it feels comfortable in my hand although its a bit bulky. Got this one for the ps3 and I have to say it feels great being able to play without feeling uncomfortable. The round shape holds firmly in my palm which is how I have to hold the controller on my left hand. The position of the left analog stick is close so no more extending and less strain on my hand. The triggers feels great and responsive. Doesn't seem to get my palm sweaty after an extended game session. Buttons are a bit small but not too annoying. With the ps4 on the way I hope Afterglow comes out with a controller for it. 1 thing I almost left out. It uses a small USB adaptor to play wireless so please be careful and not to lose it. I definitely recommend this product to any other gamer that's in the same situation as me or any other gamer looking for a new controller. Hope this little review helps someone.

Well I was a bit skeptical about buying this controller after reading the reviews over the wired version. However the wireless version has no dead zone that I could feel. It was very responsive. The light could be turned on an off if your concerned with power. The only thing I don't like is it's too small for my hands and my hands are not very big. So I gave this controller to my girlfriend. I bought both the (Power A - Pro Elite) controller as well and this one. The wireless (AfterGlow) controller is more responsive then the (Power A). It's just like a PS3 or Xbox manufactured model. To me it's more comfortable then the Play Station's out dated controller when playing FPS. The reason I love the xbox controllers is because of the offset analog sticks when playing first person shooters, it just feels better.

Works Just as well as a normal controller and the feel is not bad. Also, the lights are awesome! Recommended to anyone looking for a cheaper alternative to the standard PS3 controller.

The controller would seem like it would suck, but it doesn't. It didn't give me any kind of problems and after a while you get used to the layout. It's a great buy for the money you pay.No regrets!! And I think it looks awesome in the dark.

I purchased this controller for myself for Christmas to use as my main controller for my PS3; I couldn't be happier. I was a little disappointed when I pushed the start button to turn off the controller before watching a movie, and there is no option for it, but that is o.k., because all you do is turn the light off on the controller and leave it alone and it automatically turns off after about a minute or so of inactivity. I LOVE it, really easy to use at night and it looks AWESOME!! Great value for the price.....pick your favorite color and I know you'll love it!
