Pro Good for large hands
The F710 is larger than a PS3 controller, which makes it more comfortable for people with large hands.
Con Poor d-pad
The NW/NE and SW/SE directions on the d-pad feel a bit wonky as they do not always register or register with a delay. The controls for the d-pad almost feel lie it is meant to be a four way d-pad over and eight way. Definitely is not one of the better d=pads out there and may be a hinderance in games that require good d-pad control.
Con Does not support USB charging
