  1.  It DOES Work With PS3

    Posted: 

    I can 100% confirm it does. The user below was probably unaware that you have to format the drive to FAT32 before a PS3 can recognise it.
    This is as simple as right clicking the drive on your PC and clicking format, making sure FAT32 is selected not NTFS.

  2.  Not Ready Yet

    Posted: 

    I purchased this pad hoping to jump into Mass Effect and enjoy the game as it should be played but alas it doesn't work. It's unrealistic to expect already-released games to fully support a controller that wasn't even released when they were developing their games but I havent actually found a game that fully supports it yet.
    Also, games generally don't support the controller's vibration feature so it feels like a bit of dead wood.
    Also, not many games support a "z axis" so you wont be able to map those shoulder buttons either.
    To be honest I think the ergonomics are great and the hardware is awesome but due to software issues that have plagued the PC for years, it seems a bit pointless paying all that money for what is in effect half a controller.
    If you get the wired one however you can get some special drivers called XBDC that allow yout to map the shoulder buttons and enable vibration in older games that dont support it. Of course though the XBDC drivers dont support wireless.
    Overall not very happy but great service from Play.com as usual.

  3.  Have No Doubts

    I was a bit sceptical about this monitor as the price did not seem to tally up with the spec of which you receive. I received it today on what must have been a special delivery Play.com do for items of this size as it arrived on the next working day!
    Monitor fits very easily into supplied stand and comes with a standard VGA cable and power lead.
    I am using an HDMI cable to connect it to my pc and after starting up my PC the monitor was making a horrid noise that sounded like the fan on my GFX card! Upon further investigation I realised it was a static sound and all I had to do was mute the inbuilt speakers via the easy to navigate control panel. I think it only did this as I already have sound via my soundcard and the HDMI probably conflicted with it.
    There are NO dead pixels on it at all and the quality of the picture is awesome on the 1680 x 1050 max resolution for this screen.
    Unlike some other reviews I have not seen any evidence of colours leaking, although I do suggest calibrating the monitor with a free program simply called Monitor Callibration WIzard 10 (Google it).

    Over all I am left speachless with how such a great quality screen can be sold for this price, the quality of the picture is immense and the high quality black gloss finish is also very classy.
    One more word of advice I have for a potential buyer is not to panic if you hear the monitor buzzing, it sometimes does it when you fick between resolution for about 5 seconds but after it's resized it's fine.

    I hope my review encourages those of you who were in the same situation as me at the start. You will not find ANY monitor of this spec/quality any cheaper, any where.

  4.  Does What It Says On The Tin

    Hard to give this product anything less than 5 stars. It does the same job as any "major" brand version for a fraction of the cost. Before you take any notice of people claiming it's "slow", it's worth considering that some people have USB 1.1 ports rather than the much faster 2.0. It wont make a difference which stick you use with 1.1 as it will always be slow.
