Was looking for a controller with Xbox layout for my PS4, this seems a decent price for the controller with 12 months warranty.

I would feel like I'm cheating on my PS4 if I used this type of controller.
I have this I managed to pick it up for £17 from amazon warehouse. It came as new. I prefer Xbox style layout controllers, but this is far from feeling like one of those pads. The triggers are trash and have no travel in them at all along with a short stop at the back that sits uncomfortably on your fingers. The handles don’t hold well either, in that they don’t allow your hands to conform properly. Not only that but the Bluetooth connections is extremely sloppy, it disconnects or reads the inputs slowly and lags as the battery drains, your good for an hour or so after it’s fully charged but after that you pretty much need to plug it in again.

Overall I just use this as the wired backup pad for when I want to play split screen. I’d avoid the pad as even when I paid £17 I wish I’d just put that money towards an official pad.

I bought an open box one from amazon cos it was only £16. Some annoying things - the sticks are very loose compared to a ds4. It will only charge from the PS4 not from a wall charger. It won't bring the PS4 out of standby.

I’d get one if it had an headphone jack
No headphone jack is a deal breaker for me
I'd agree with the post above - never mind the no headphone jack, it is the horrible lag on wireless that makes this unusable. Sent mine straight back when I came across it last year, plumped for the Nacon Revolution Unlimited Pro, works a treat.
Had mine for 1.5 years, prefer it to standard PS4 controller layout as I came from Xbox. Has worked fine for my needs.

This is, by far, one of the worst controllers I’ve ever bought - only beaten into 2nd place by the Ouya controller. Lag, horrible stick movement, no audio jack, poor comms with the PS4, pain to setup, etc
In addition to the other faults, it's worth pointing out it also has no rumble.
An alternative with this button layout is the nacon revolution wireless controller. Really well built, good triggers and sticks have a nice feel.
Downsides include wireless dongle required (provided), doesn't power on console (wired or wireless) and no battery level available on the console. The led on the pad is also way too bright but some black electrical tape fixes that. It also has a headphone socket.
If only there was a PS4 like controller for my Xbox. It's not easy living with SHS (Small Hands Syndrome)
