4.0 out of 5 stars Very good to use @ Home! 6 Jan 2009
Verified Purchase
I did not want to submit a review within 5 minutes of opening the box... I have had this keypad for three weeks, and it is easier than using the PS3 controller to enter text in Playstation Home. The keypad clamps over the controller, is light and well built, and does not make the controller awkward or unbalanced. There is no USB cable packed with it. From full charge, I have got about four days use from it (based on between 3-4 hours use each day).

I have large hands, so can easily reach the keys, however, the keys are small. It takes a little getting used to when entering other characters using the green and orange shoulder buttons on the keypad. This keypad does not replace a full keyboard. It is ideal for quick messages, web browsing etc. For long typing sessions, you will need a full keyboard.

The track pad function is not very responsive, so I do not use it as the sticks on the controller are better at this aspect. According to my usage over the three weeks I have had it, here are the pros and cons:

Pros:
Small and light
Fits nicely onto the PS3 controller
Well-constructed
Excellent for use in Home and during gaming

Cons:
Small keys. People with large hands may find it tricky when typing, unless you are accustomed to using a Blackberry mobile phone.
Track pad option is not very responsive

What I would like to see in a version 2 of this Keypad:
Slightly bigger keys
Backlighting for low light or dark conditions
Improved track pad

In short, it is a very good device and I recommend it. If you have large hands, it is worth trying it out first if you can before buying one.

3.0 out of 5 stars PS3 keypad 21 Oct 2009
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I have owned a PS3 for just over 1 year, I found going on Sony home and typing txt to my friends a bit of a pain till I got the Sony Keypad. It was easy to fit and mine came with a USB charge lead. If you use the sixaxis controller and add the keypad then it does take a little getting used to the extra weight. The buttons are a little small for big stubby fingers like mine, but im used to it now. It also can be used as a mouse when net surfing via the middle button. Overall a welcome addition to your joypad if like me you spend a lot of time typing messages out or on the internet. It holds it's charge for quite a long time, about 6 - 10 hours of use.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job! 26 Dec 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
You'll be amazed how small this keypad is, though I suppose it needs to be to fit on the controller.

The build quality is excellent and what you expect from Sony. The individual keys are small but suprisingly I can still effectively type text quickly and with few errors, even with my bigger than average hands. Though I do find myself looking closely at the keypad while I'm typing to make sure I'm hitting those tiny little buttons correctly.

The controller as widely explained clips onto the controller - which it does very securely and without hindering access to any of the controller buttons. The keypad is light but I've got to say that I feel the difference in the weight when combined with the controller, but overall the controller/keypad combo when held are quite light still. Overall it does the job well, but you're not going to want to type lengthy emails - I think it's good for relatively short messages on Home or when chatting - but a lengthy email writer (for example) then I think you'll be using your trusty PC keyboard.

The downsides:

The mouse pad feature doesn't work very well and I think most people will continue to use the thumbsticks to guide the mouse pointer - they're just easier and more accurate than the mouse pad on the keypad. Not a real problem.

I use two controllers - one for use while the other is charging. The problem with the keypad is that I will have to unclip and then clip from one controller to the other. Although it's relatively easy to do it is a bit of annoyance as it's not just a simple clip-on clip-off - you need to be sure you're bending one side of the clip to hook/unhook.

5.0 out of 5 stars Handy - but ive got big habds 14 Aug 2009
This is a great accessory and made to the high quality I have come to expect from Sony. It works a treat and is easy to attach to the controller. My only issues is I have quite big hands and the keys are quite small however just like my blackberry as soon as im used to it all will be fine.

The battery lasts really well too.

I feel this is a must for PS Home! Interaction has never been so fun.

5/5 from me!

2.0 out of 5 stars PS3 Wireless Keypadd 11 Feb 2010
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Neat little unit that fits on the controller unit, little is the oprative word. Bit fiddly to use, so I would recommend that if you want to input text regularly you get a larger keyboard. I have tried a usb keyboard and it works okay.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for my fingers... 2 Feb 2010
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Although it is very well made and it fits perfectly with the SONY dualshock, it is very hard to type with your thumbs because, in the natural position, they does not reach the keys, so you have to release the controller and handle it again. This must sound funny, but it is not. Keys are so tiny that in most of the times you do not know whether you have pressed a key or not. Again, keys are so small and they do not have backlit so, unless you have a well lighted room, it is very hard to type. The "touch pad" function is very smart, but is not precise.

I hardly suggest to try it with your hands before buying it.

Bought this for the husband as a presie, not as good as expected, too small and would probably be suited to a child as the buttons are hard to use for an adult hand
