Customer Reviews of Snakebyte Premium Bluetooth Controller for Sony Playstation 3
I got this one instead of getting a second PS3 controller because of the vast difference in price. There is definitely a difference in feel between the two but the price difference is well worth it. I have my friends use this one or I just use it when I don't feel like using the PS3 controller while it's recharging.
Good Third-Party Controller7/20/2011
A friend bought this controller and let me play with it and it was everything that I could ask for in a PS3 controller. I like the size and positioning of all the buttons.
Great Alternative to the DS37/19/2011
I picked up the SnakeByte Premium after doing some research online. I must say so far I am Very pleased with the results. the controller is slightly larger than the standard DS3 but not near as bulky and awkward as a 360 controller. It features Sixaxis, Dual Shock, and Bluetooth capabilities. It also comes with a 9ft USB cable and a set of clip on triggers for the DS3. On a side note the Triggers for the DS3 are really helpful and normally are 3.99-5.99 a set.The controller synced to my Ps3 in no time at all. It does have a shorter window of staying on when inactive than a DS3 but this is not bad as it saves battery life. The only complaints I have are that it will randomly pause the game, this has happened 3 times in about 4 days, and the battery life is not as good as a DS3 BUT you can change the battery out.
Does not work on wireless7/17/2011
Do not buy this controller! It does not work wirelessly with the PS3 due to a update on the PS3. If you go to the snakebyte website, there is a notice about the incompatibility with the PS3. I found out too late, but it is not too late to warn everyone about this "great" deal.
