I needed a xbox style controller badly because my PS3 controller hurt my hands. Everyone says not to go 3rd party but in the world of PS3, I had no choice. I read all of the horror stories about deadzones and bad connection, but I had to buy something. The power A feels great in my hands. I don't feel the usual tension that I normally get with the sixaxis. The responsiveness of the L and R analog sticks felt nice, but had slight deadzones. I had to turn my sensitivity on Black Ops down to compensate for the force required to turn normally. After that, everything balanced out. The D pad, however, is a problem. I sometimes have to hit it 3 or more times to get a resonse. It has lost connection for no reason as well, but I wouldn't say it does often. So is this controller for you? Well, that depends on what you are looking for. If your looking for something to compare to the sixaxis with smoothness and responsiveness, then this is not what you are looking for. But if you want a controller that feels wonderful in your hands and gives slightly less gameplay quality, then this might be for you. All of my testing was done playing Black Ops. There was a slight feeling out period when I couldn't kill anything, but after an hour, I got my stuff together and was able to maintain the same quality of play as I would with the sixaxis. Except this time, My hands didn't hurt from holding a tiny controller.
