5.0 out of 5 stars (Video and gameplay) Great product with minor flaws February 13, 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Length: 9:26 Mins
Over all I found the frag fx to be an excellent controller, and is worth the price if you want to use a mouse while gaming on your playstation 3.

Pros: Helps increase accuracy(unless you are bad at video games, nothing will help then); Increases turning speed significantly; Buttons are remapable; Motion sensitivity is remapable; L3 and R3 are hot swappable

Cons: Mouse pad is terrible(can use it in lap, or on a table); D-pad is terrible in every way, its position is wrong and it miss hits directions

Over all I think the frag fx is a good product, even with its few flaws. The mouse and nunchuk work great so long as you read the manual and set it up properly.

5.0 out of 5 stars The mouse is only 1/2 of the story October 24, 2007

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
When I first saw it, I thought, "Well, it's about time!" So I ordered this from Amazon and just got done playing Resistance again with it...

I don't play online so I am not going to give this great product a negative review so no one else would have the same advantage. :)

And no, it's not 100% like having a KB/Mouse setup, Some things about it are better, some worse, but overall, I find it to be better than playing FPS on a console with any controllers or even a PC using KB/Mouse.

1) Mouse aiming is say about 90% as good/accurate as on a PC, but 200% better than Sixaxis.
2) Unless there's a 7 button PC mouse I don't know about, having 4 additional button on the mouse is a plus.
3) Left analog stick for movement is superior than using KB.

As I have read somewhere, the aiming and moving can get jerky, but to me, it's no worse than when I tried to play the original Half Life on a PC with less than the most expensive graphics card back when (cost me $300 to upgrade). The accuracy I've gained far outweighs anything negative about this product, which is very few.

There's one minor problem with my middle mouse button (R3), however. When I press it to zoom in or out, it fires one or two shots which would alert the enemies. So I reassigned R3 to reload and problem solved. It still fires one or two shots but no biggie. The configuration software thinks I'm pressing R1 when I press R3.

I placed a call to their technical support, and after 3-4 rings, the CEO of the company answered! I told him what a great product I thought this is and brought up the minor issue of the middle mouse button. He suggested I send email to tech support and said that if the firmware upgrade didn't fix the problem, he'd personally ship me a new one tomorrow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Controller if you READ THE MANUAL January 6, 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I purchased the FragFX despite many negative reviews here. Somewhat skeptical, I thoroughly read the website and the manual and proceeded to proceed.

Firstly I will say I think this controller is fantastic! Cod4, R6, RFoM, Ut3 (especially ut3, I'll explain later). There are some things you should know to get optimum use.

People who have stated the controller is jerky did not read the manual. You need to adjust the game's sensitivity to max (or slightly below) before adjusting the sensitivity on the controller. If you use low or medium sensitivity in the game, it will be VERY jerky and act like it has a lot of acceleration. Simply read the manual as this is explained!!

Those who claim the buttons are hard to press did not read the website or manual. You can change the sensitivity of all the buttons on your Windows XP computer. Min and Max Levels for each button are available. You can make a button respond very easily (I'm talking super turbo desert eagle here) or make it very difficult to mis-press (grenades!! AHHH). Simply goto the website and download the configuration software to get your controller set how you want.

Next... Those who complain the button layout is hard to use suffer from the same fate as those above. The same program that allows you to change sensitivity of buttons lets you remap your buttons! Hate using Square to reload in Cod4? Just set it to a trigger. Want reload to be shaking the nunchuck? No problem! You can switch the sticks, switch the stick clicks, anything you want. It is fully customizable. JUST RTFM!!

The Sixaxis support is very good. You can change the sensitivity of the accelerometers, as well as changing the default plane. So if you rest your hand sideways, the game will recognize that as the 'zero' point.

First,
If someone plugs it in without reading how to properly set it up that will cause 100% of the issues that all those nOObs that wrote negative reviews reported. I know this because I did too...BUT, I'm not a nOOb that immediately jumped online and started firing off ignorant comments, rather I read the instructions and made the game adjustments recommended and BAM! ( as Emeril says ) all the "lag" and miscalibration went away and I immediately went on massive, record breaking, kill streaks on Unreal. ANOTHER THING! I read a review from another nOOb that said,"The first thing I did was go to the browser..." THIS control is for GAMES not browsing, that's what the Mediaboard and other keyboards and mice are for...I have noticed that the sensitivity levels I have configured for the games presents a problem when going back to the online mode, but who cares, I have a Mediaboard and before that I used other devices for web browsing. I purchased this VERY REASONABLY PRICED controller to kick serious butt on FPS games and to that end it delivers WAY ABOVE EXPECTATION! Anyone who says otherwise has either:

1. Not properly configured this VERY customizable & configurable device.
2. Never used a Mouse & Keyboard on PC platform and is a complete nOOb with that scheme anyway.
3. Not taken the, maybe, 10 minutes it takes ( after proper configuration ) to get used to the feel needed to use it.

Mostly, I believe the negative reviews are just a classic case of plugging it in right out of the box, maybe turning the sensitivity dial on the side a little, and saying, "Duh...This don't work!" and writing a pouty lip review.
