    I want to be able to put my PS2 with my AV gear, behind a glass cabinet door. Therefore a wireless RF controller would be best.
    Would I need an RF extension to be outside of the cabinet, or will it work through the glass??

    I have come across this:
    Logic 3 Freebird Wireless RF Controller For PlayStation 2:

    What are your experiences?? Any ideas?


    Cheers,

    Logitech seems to be OFFICIALLY LICENSED BY SONY; and the reviews below say its 100% pukka!
    http://gameworldnetwork.pricegrabber.com/rating_getprodrev.php/masterid=2991931/id_type=masterid

    This could be the ideal choice peeps ... but then why did it not win awards at the E3 Awards (like the 3G Airstyle

    This is a major benefit of the Airstyle remote though!!
    The Logitech Cordless Action Controller ...which I was just about to buy... only works with its own RF receiver, which you have to have one per controller.
    It works on Radio A & B frequencies... so if you had a 3rd or more controllers they will get confused in the other frequencies. So a multitap is out of the equation.

    However according to Airstyle you can play 8 controllers with the one receiver... (max you'd prob need is 4 anyway)

    DILEMNA...

    The best ones are of course the Logitech.
    Where will you get the rest of your kit from?

    The Logitech comes with its own transmitter/reciever which plugs into the controller port?
