    the thumb sticks are more rugged and have better grip on them, October 17, 2016

    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!
    Update 7/11/2018 controller still functions great!

    A must controller for PC gamers!, February 19, 2018

    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.

    Left analog stick wears out in months, May 29, 2018

    I have gone through two Dualshock 4 new model controllers, one that came with my PS4 Pro and a second one I ordered a month later when the first one developed issues with the left analog stick. Now my second controller is showing the exact same issues.

    The symptoms are that at some specific angle, in my case at the very least slightly to the left or right of straight forward, the stick will not respond properly. This will result in the game character for instance suddenly slowing to a walk from a run and back again, resulting in very stuttery movement. And over time the issue will get worse, with larger deadzones.

    Sony will replace the controllers under warranty within one year, but the warranty process is inconvenient to say the least. You have to mail the controller to them, and you might not get it back for two or three weeks. Without a controller, the Playstation system is unuseable. There are several guides out there that detail how to replace the sticks yourself, but they require cracking the controller open and desoldering the stick to solder a new one in its place.

    When the stick is behaving normally the controller is great, but with two in a row going bad like this I will be looking into a third party controller for sure.
