Get what you pay for

So far, this charge stand works well enough, though there are certainly some oddities to it. The included instructions said it will have a blue light when charging, and then a green one when finished- though in truth, it has a red light when charging, and a blue one when finished. Sometimes, if you plug it into different sources it will appear blue when charging or red when fully charged, I haven't figured out why yet.
It's a little hard to fit the controllers in sometimes- but when you do, it looks nice enough, and it's one of the more aesthetically pleasing chargers I've owned. And hey, it DOES charge the controllers- so that's what's important, right? well, not quite- if you plan on plugging this into some game consoles, you need to turn the console ON for it to actually charge. It should be fine if you plug it into a wall adapter or desktop computer, but if you're plugging it into a PS3, it may not work. It's... less than consistent and works when it wants to.
But, for the price and the look, as long as it actually charges, it's not TOO bad. Just realize that you're not exactly getting top of the line gear here, even if it looks nice.
