I have definitely seen multiple improvements with these new PS4 controllers over the older ones. The battery lasts a lot longer, the thumbsticks are more rugged and have a better grip on them, L2 and R2 buttons are more springy (a good thing), and the thumbsticks also feel way smoother when moving them around. Other things I have noticed is that the buttons are now grey like the throwback controller and there is now a light on the touchpad. Although the last gen controllers are still pretty good, I would definitely recommend the new gen controllers for only $10 more.

Update: 12/4/17 This controller still functions as if it were new, even with heavy use which includes me dropping it on multiple occasions. It has outlasted three gen 1 controllers.
Bravo Sony!

Pretty cool and unique ps4 controller. It's an official product not some "nock-off".
*That's an added destiny decal I bought separately*

Oh my goodness....If I knew what I know now I would of never invested in Steams controller for my computer! Thank goodness for grandson's input because I would of never know any different. I originally purchased the Steam controller and I will admit it does do what it claims to do...unfortunately PS controllers rule. With my Steam controller I had to jump through hoops to get it set up to something I was comfortable with and it did not always respond as I had set it up to do. When I first started using the PS4 controller I found the buttons to be a bit much however with a bit of endurance it is like second nature now. The easy of the control of things is exceptionally well designed and I don't have to put batteries in constantly as I did on the Steam controller. I will state that even though I find this controller far exceeds my Steam controller that on extremely rare occasion the controller will divert back to what Steam believes are the best setting yet this is easily resolved by rebooting the controller.

Works great. I chose the silver since it was a wee-but cheaper than the others.

So far so good!!!!! Awesome color l!!!!

Pretty color and I like the feel of this one, but as I have experienced with the other controllers I've bought that were not shipped with the console, there's a weird lag every so often and from time to time the "input" doesn't stop when the control is released. For example, sometimes I may be heading in a certain direction and I'll let go of the stick, but my character continues to move for a moment. Sometimes it fixes itself quickly, other times it lasts for a minute or so. This can be VERY detrimental to game play!

Lives up to the classic Dual Shock from the original Playstation. Definitely a bit bigger than the original (as I obviously have slightly bigger hands than I did when I was 18, and the DS4 feels girthier than I remember the DS being). But it's still comfortable to hold and has good weight distribution. I bought it to use when playing old games on my computer with emulators, and while it takes a little tinkering in Windows to get it to work, it does so great. The only issue I've had is keeping it paired in Bluetooth, but I think that might be an issue with my dongle and not with the controller (as the dongle is several years old). So I've mostly stuck to using it plugged directly into a USB port.

Actually, one small thing to note is that when I go into Discord, it thinks the mic on the remote is my headset mic, even though I have the controller disabled in sound settings. A little annoying when I'm about to raid and my guild can't hear me. But simply unplugging from the USB port solves the problem. Again - this is probably more an issue with Windows than it is with the controller.

I first encountered the DualShock 4 controller when I was playing on my PS4 and it was great.
Lightweight, great response time, love the LEDs that change colors , touchpad is also good and triggers are responsive enough for feedback.

Now I switched back to PC gaming and this is great. I'm running it with "DS4Windows" which is a 3rd party app to make the DS4 controller work on Windows. It's great! you can use it either wired or wireless and charge from PC with the micro-usb cable it comes with.

I played WWE 2k18, NBA2k18, COD: WWII, and South Park with it. So far- great! Highly recommend if you use controllers for PC gaming.

This is the best console controller imo. Compare to the previous models the new one is way lighter. Doesn't feel heavy at all. Thumbsticks have a better feel and doesn't feel as loose as the older model. The triggers not as clicky as the old model. The touch pad and light bar are somewhat more responsive if that makes sense. Overall i would recommend this controller over the previous model and idk compared to other pro/3rd party controllers though.

I don't know if I've just had bad luck with the normal black controllers, but this controller seems way better in terms of battery life. I got at least 12 hours of constant use out of this before I lost even one notch on the battery life. Of course it's brand new, so take that with a grain of salt. I do like the gold design, but I've always liked gold so I'm a bit biased. I had a heck of a time getting it to sync with my PS4 initially. After that, I no longer had any issues with it. I had to use something to reset it with the button on the back and go through a syncing process.
