Controller worked for a little less than a year but all of a sudden without touching anything it scrolls up and down
I have tried to clean it every which way possible but it doesn't stop.

These new painted DualShock 3 controllers are better than the black ones, because the paint finish makes them easier to grip. The black plastic ones become slick when your hands sweat while gaming, while the painted ones have a matte finish that adds a little texture. I have a silver one and this red one, both have a nice look.

The problem with the red version is that the indicator light next to the usb plug shines through the casing. With the light and the paint being red, the light gets an intensity boost and it shows through the top of the controller. It's not a big deal to me, but is surprising coming from Sony as they usually don't miss details like that. Otherwise this is a great color red, with just a bit of metal flake. Get one of these and spice up your gaming.

I was so pleased to learn that Sony resolved their legal issue with "Dual Shock" rumble. Now this feels so much like the controller I have grown used to. It has a good weight to it now and the rumble and new six axis features work very well together. Actually I had a Wii and the six axis features of the Wiimote (like in MarioKart) seem to be not as precise or user friendly as Sony's are.

As for the red color, I was worried it was painted, but no the plastic is through and through red, solid red. And the red is the God of War red (in my opinion) so it is pleasant on the eye.

I am still not very pleased with the L3 and R3 buttons, they feel awkward, but I couldn't really tell you how to better implement these extra buttons either.

Died within months of lite use. this looks like a real PS3 controller but is some unknown maker and they will not replace it, or repair it even though you contact them within the 90 day warranty period.

This controller is a fake don't buy or you would very soon regret it for sure.

This controller is a Chinese fake, it works on some games just like the original controller but on more advanced games like Amazing Spiderman 2 it sucks, the buttons don't work as a original controller works. I have this and original controller and I compared both controller's function and I was shocked. I have to keep pressing the fire button for each fire whereas with original controller it would keep firing at a very high rate.

This was for my son and totally stopped using this controller because If you are a gamer then you would understand this flaw makes life and death difference in most games.

Also, now when I compared the label on original and this controller its clear this its not same, its says Sony but there is no serial number of ay other details that were on original controller.

I contacted seller with this complain and I got no response, which kind a shows that are aware of the issue and just trying to push out these fake controllers. I tried Sony and they won't cover these controllers under manufacturer warranty either.

Only buy from a US seller because from within US they can't sell fakes like this for a trademark products.

This is a nice little controller. I was on target when I thought they released the DualShock 3, Sony's next gen gamer's Excalibur. Same awesome design that fits oh so perfectly in my hand, same game enhancing vibration function as the DS2, and now with the sixaxis control feature & it's wireless! What more do I need to say about it? Sure there are other after market controllers out there for less money, but why? Who didn't cringe a bit when Sony unveiled the unsightly, boomerang controller with the PS3, oh so many years ago? So when it was revealed that the controller was going to be the same shape & function as the DualShock 2, I let out a huge sigh of relief. But my relief was tempered by the announcement that there was to be no 'shock' in the new wireless controller. "Oh well," I thought, "At least it still 'looks' like the dual shock." But then I heard that the reason for no 'shock' was that it wasn't compatible with the sixaxis feature. Now I'm no electronics engineer, but I know enough to know that there are ways to counter such incompatibilities.

at first, you see this control and you think it is cheap or cheaper, because all ps3 dualshock 3 controllers look made of a finer plastic. But then you start using it, and the real only difference between this and the black ones is the color. This color thing makes it propagate the light indicators from their very source. You see the red light on from the other side of the controller. I thought it was due to a cheaper plastic composition, but if you look carefully, the black ones also are transparent.

Anyway, lots of fun having multiple controllers, I think I'll keep on buying them. Also not so expensive as the not official or not Sony ones. It's not cheap, in any sense.
