HOWEVER, I ultimately returned the product. The problem that I haven't seen mentioned is that the main thing that makes using a mouse so much better than a controller simply doesn't translate onto PS3:
On a PC, a mouse is LINEAR. If you move the mouse 2 inches to the right your character turns a certain amount. If you move the mouse 2 inches to the right quickly, the character turns the EXACT SAME AMOUNT, he just does it MORE QUICKLY. This is not the case when using a mouse on Black Ops, Medal of Honor, etc. The Eagle Eye basically translates the "mouse is moving to the right" action into "right analog stick is being pushed to the right." This, in theory, works well. However, on the PS3, the speed of your character's turn depends not on the speed that the mouse moves, nor the distance, but on a fixed in game sensitivity. For example, if you set your sensitivity to 2 in Black Ops, your character can only turn at a certain max speed. If you try to swipe your mouse to the right quickly, the PS3 only understands that the right analog stick is being pushed breifly, and your character will barely move. If you move the mouse relatively slowly, the character will turn farther, because the PS3 thinks the right analog stick has been pushed right for a longer period of time. This is the opposite of how it works on PC, and is very disconcerting.Read more ›
That being said, just as background and setup, I'm a mid-30's gamer who grown up rocking the FPS online PC games all the way back to the original Quake1&2, Wolfenstein and the ever awesome Half Life on those fantastic dial ups. It's ingrained that a keyboard and mouse are the necessary tools for an FPS. I transitioned to the PS3 because of the expense of continually updating my gaming rig each year and in buying the PS3 I've gone though quite a few Keyboard/Mouse setups for it. Most noteable is the SplitFish series of PS3/xBox mouse setups.
The SplitFish has it's advantages with an easy plug'n play, but the calibration, adjustments and precision are far lacking in comparison to the Eagle Eye. Moving from one game to the next you find the SplitFish 'feeling' is way different on each game. Now this isn't a review on the SplitFish, but a review on the Eagle Eye. I have had more issues trying to dial in and change and setup the SplitFish to get the PC Game feel and in the end had no luck. The SplitFish will never feel like a PC game setup. Period. I eventually just "lived with it".... until I jumped the CoD line and moved to BF3 where the SplitFish is completely and utterly useless by the stair effect.
Being useless I moved onto another Mouse/Keyboard setup and bought the Eagle Eye. I was weary based on some of the review, but I'm happy I bought it. Here, let me say that again in big'ol letters I"M HAPPY I BOUGHT IT. It's far beyond the SplitFish setup.Read more ›
It was by accident that I stumbled across a YouTube review of Eagle Eye but for the price it was worth a shot. I am so glad I made the decision to buy it. I've already been cursed at in-game for being such a good shot and went from that guy at the bottom of the scoreboard with 1 kill and 20 deaths to the top 5 every time. I've used it for BF3, Golden Eye, and CoD4. All of them work great with the Eagle Eye.
As for finding the correct mouse and keyboard, it worked with a cheap Logitech M310 wireless mouse and GE wireless keyboard I picked up from Target for $15 total.
As to the people giving this a negative review, it is either (1) they are too inept to read the instructions and calibrate it correctly, (2) not adjusting in-game sensitivity, or (3) not using a correct mouse or keyboard.
Pros: Quick install, faster aiming, compact, and great for PC gamers coming to console.
Cons: It has 95% of the feel of a PC game (it still feels a bit off), not compatible with all mice or keyboards, and it will make your wife angry that you spend more time gaming.

it took 2 hours to get it dialed in then the next day wouldn't work with the game that i dialed it in for. No updates from later that 2011. Read morePublished 1 month ago by chris

I like it. One issue I am having however, the mouse moves way too slow. You may need to buy a mouse like mine which has the ability to change own speed.Published 5 months ago by AlexT
