This controller was purchased for a five year old. The dual shock controllers are too large for a child's hands and do not allow them to reach all the buttons without changing hand position constantly. I have noticed that with this controller she is finally able to press buttons in fast combinations. This allows for less frustration and the faster response is aiding in the development of small motor skills. Game enjoyment has increased as well. She loves the fact that this controller has back lit buttons (something worth taunting me on as mine does not). For someone that hasn't memorized the controller layout, this is a positive when playing a game with minimal lighting. The rumble seems to work just fine. I have noticed no response lag when gaming. I don't know why the D-Pad and left joystick were swapped, but the controller's primary user doesn't seem to mind. The internal battery charges through USB and cannot be accessed, similar to the Sony controllers (and a plus to me).

As with all third party accessories, not all functions are available with this controller. I didn't ding the rating for them, but you wont be able to check the battery charge level through the PS3, or turn the controller off using the onscreen menu. That said, the controller does turn off on its own after a few minutes of non-use, which is a good approach for a child. the battery has lasted for a number of hour or two gaming sessions and hasn't required a charge since the initial charge three weeks ago. I don't intend to allow this to be used for marathon gaming sessions, so it is good for us.

This compares two controllers from the same company. Both are rather similar and are made to be closer to the Xbox 360 controller, I feel. The mini Blue controller is RF and thus cannot turn on the PS3. It can turn off the PS3 though, since that is done from an on screen menu. It has a dedicated RF dongle, feels well built and comfortable, and illuminates well. The controller is about 30% smaller than a typical PS3 controller by comparison. This is roughly 50% smaller than an Xbox 360 controller. Due to this, it is not as comfortable as the 360 controller. But, I feel it is more comfortable than the standard PS3 controller.

I've seen this controller at my local brick and mortar stores with a price around $40 plus tax. Purchasing it from Amazon through 5 Star Gaming was definitely a better choice as I was able to purchase two "used, like new" controllers (Translation: Near Mint Condition with wires and dongle, but no box) for less than the price of one. The controller is a good size and fits comfortably in my hands. Even with the Xbox 360 joystick layout, I had no difficulty using the D-pad for gameplay. Syncing to the PS3 is a breeze too. I plugged the USB dongle into the PS3, connected the charge wire to the controller (controller was dead at the time), and turned on the PS3 via the console's power button. Once the PS3 booted up, all I had to do was press the Home button on the controller and in seconds, the controller was detected and worked flawlessly.

One of the benefits that this controller has over the Sony PS3 controllers is that you can plug it into ANY Mini-USB charger and it will charge with no quarrels, even during gameplay. The Sony PS3 controller, however, will only charge when connected to a source that recognizes it as both a USB controller and has a 5v output (like the PS3 or a computer). Be warned though, most outlet chargers have a 5v at 1A output whereas the PS3 and any computer put out 5v at 500mA on a USB line. Higher amperage will make the controllers charge faster, but I can't guarantee if repeat charging on a higher than intended amperage is good for the battery's longevity.

As for the PC compatibility, I knew that the controller used an RF USB dongle to communicate, so I figured it would work with my PC as well just the same as any other wireless peripheral. After charging the controller, I plugged the dongle into my PC and it was installed with no problems.

After playing the 360 for years and loving the controller, I needed a PS3 controller with a similar layout. I first tried the Pro EX Controller for PS3 but couldn't deal with the huge dead zones in the sticks. I went for this controller instead.

I was a little worried about the size of the controller being too small to be comfortable. I have average-sized hands, and before I ordered this, I held a standard 360 controller in my hand. It felt great, and I couldn't imagine a smaller version feeling better. I decided to take the chance anyway, and I ordered the controller.

Let me tell you, this controller feels and looks great. My hands are just as comfortable with this Mini Pro Elite as they are with a regular 360 controller. Because it is smaller, I feel that I can access all of the buttons faster because they are in closer range. I don't detect any dead zones in the sticks, the buttons and vibrations feel great, and the battery seems to last a very long time. The battery life may be the most impressive feature on this controller.

You charge the controller with the standard USB cable you would use to charge any other PS3 controller, and you can charge while playing. This will take up two USB slots, however, as you need to keep the wireless plug-in, well, plugged in.

There is a button on the back of the controller that will light up the face buttons and the bumpers (well, L1 and R1, I suppose). It is a nice feature, albeit one that I do not use because I'm familiar with the buttons and would rather save the battery life.
