I was expecting a terrible knock off that performed poorly (because of the price & reviews), but I was pleasantly surprised to find out that this controller was an excellent Sony replica controller.
I purchased two for my kids with protective skins to replace the ones they broke, & the first thing I noticed was that the size, shape, & weight was almost exactly like Sony's.
They fit perfectly on my energizer controller charging dock, & the protective skins I purchased were also a perfect fit.
The first (& only) game I tested with them on was Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon, & everything worked as it should. I know there were reports of the battery life being short, the controller not connecting, stiffness in the sticks, & a lag in the response time, I'm happy to report that I haven't experienced none of those issues.
In fact I'm ordering two more for my wife & I.
This is an excellent product at a phenomenal price.
If you're in the market for a new controller, but you don't want to spend too much because you're saving for the new consoles, (like me) I'd at least give these a chance. If they're as bad as some of the guys (that had me terrified after I purchased these controllers) commenting here claim they are, you can always return them.
In my limited opinion, there's no conceivable difference between this, & Sony's version (other than the generic PS button). It even has the grainy texture that new Sony controllers have, & all of the Sony controller accessories like the chat pad fit.
