"The perfect PS2 companion?"4.5 starson by b0undlessone
Pros: Incredible responsiveness, no lag whatsoever, unbelievable battery life, excellent range
Cons: A little pricey.....
Summary: To be fair, the reason I decided to FINALLY go wireless with my PS2 controller less than a year before PS3 launches is because one of Sony's main competitors, Xbox 360. Anyone who owns the Xbox 360 wireless controller can tell you this is the BEST designed controller EVER, hands down! This is the next best thing. First, the background. I made the foolish mistake of assuming that all wireless controllers were created equally. Originally, I had bought Sylvania's 900 Mhz controllers for a mere $15 each off eBay......big mistake. First off, they're huge compared to Logitech's, they take four "AA" batteries instead of two, and the receiver is this dongle that hangs ever so ugly from the system for which you have to manually select the channel for each controller using a switch on the back. Less than five minutes after using them, the game paused with the message, "Please plug a controller back into controller port one." The controller kept losing the connection to the receiver and the system thought I had unplugged the controller!!! I was so angry that, even though I almost NEVER pay retail for anything, I used some Christmas money to pay a whopping $40 each for Logitech's controllers. Do I regret it? NEVER!!! These things are almost perfect. They are well designed, just slightly bigger than the OEM wired controllers, and syncing them with the receivers is such a breeze! The receiving unit is a little rectangle you plug into the controller port. It only has one button. To link it up with the controller, just push the button, and turn on the controller and VOILA! Wireless at its very best. I've had 2 of these for about four months and even with my son and me logging about 10-20 hours/week on the system, still haven't needed to replace the batteries (they take two each). Don't make the mistake I did and let price affect your decision, go with the best!
