Good for topspin, counter attacking, serving and smashing. However the top sheet is too hard. Overall good for the price but I would recommend the neo version for more control.

** Update **
After having used this rubber fairly constantly for about a year, I noticed the tackiness faded pretty quickly. Along with that the spin has noticeably dropped as well. It is still a great beginner rubber, but I am looking to purchase either a Donic Baracuda or Yasaka Mark V for my next forehand sheet. I would recommend the H3 for anyone who has a bit of experience and looking to up their game. If played with more than a few times a week, it will need to be replaced within a few months, which is more than enough time to develop skills and get used to a step up from basic rubber sheets.
I just received this item over the weekend and have used it a few times since then. Initially the rubber was very tacky, but not nearly as tacky as I had originally anticipated, based upon reviews I had read online. The rubber is very heavy and seems to require a good amount of effort in order to unleash the spin and quickness.
I like to play a heavy topspin and looping game, and this rubber is accommodating that style well. In time there should be a noticeable increase in the amount of speed and spin, as I acclimate to the new rubber.
Overall I would recommend it for anyone with strong, quick topspin/looping shots and game. I will note that it does perform well with pushes and short game shots as well.

This was a generally good rubber for me (I am a all around offensive player), tacky chinese rubber made it good for spins, yet it still was a decent topspin looper. It could still be better at flat kill shots though. Overall it is a good offensive rubber but there are better ones out there for similar prices.

I tried it on a epoxy from donic. Very tacky, the ball stay several seconds glued to the rubber. Very hard too. Very destabilizing at the beginning. After a little adaptation time I can control better this. High thow angle, not difficult to reach the background of the table. You can even do very heavy loops and topspins, and put insane spin in your serves. And very effective on short serve receive just behind the net. That was its advantages. Now the inconvenient : You really need to be well placed and hit the ball with the correct timing or you will do an error. Not easy to play at all. It's also totally rubbish for the flat game (flat hit, blocking, smash). Always have to put spin. And the last but tiresome disadvantage : it's just impossible to finnish a rally with it. For exemple: I was playing with my friend. After a long rally, i did a topspin deep into his bh. He was totally out of game and it opened me a large door into his fh side. So I did a powerful topspin on the short side that would be decisive with an esn rubber. But he had enough time to bring back the ball on the table ! So real lack on speed ... For conclusion : not for beginner and not for high level powerful player. What does remain ? XD

Very high quality rubber from DHS. Works great on power offensive game, great spin on loops, but, I also found it to be a terrific rubber to chop with on the BH. The tackiness enhances spin serving. I washed with water and used a plastic cover every time after a game, which greatly preserved the tackiness of the top sheet. Best on Clipper type wood blades, based on my experience to date.
