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:
Small and light
Fits nicely onto the PS3 controller
Excellent for use in Home and during gaming
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.
This official keypad looks very nice on a controller and doesn't interfere with any of the buttons or triggers. A little extra weight is added to the controller, but that is not a problem at all - still feels normal to me. It is easy to put on/remove and the materials used for the keypad is very nice which makes it feel more natural in the hand. The same cable you use to charge a controller can be used to charge the keypad which is very convenient. No dongle needed either like other keypads, so your USB ports will be free.
Typing with this keypad is very easy for me. The buttons are well sized, designed and spaced out for easy use; small, but big enough to use well in my opinion. Big hand users should not have any problems with this, especially if you're adept to using a Blackberry. Getting some of the other characters you want will take a little getting used to, as you have two coloured bumpers on either side of the keypad which correspond to the characters you want. Overall, it is just like a standard, full-sized keyboard but obviously shrunk down. The edition of shortcut buttons for messages and friends is very nice allowing for quick access. Lastly, there is an on/ off switch which is good as some others don't have one.
There are only two negatives I could find for the keypad, however, these are small issues. It would have been very nice if the keys would light up in a darker setting. It's a slight annoying thing, but something that can be ignored. Lastly, the touch pad capabilities - this in my opinion is not even needed for the keypad. I think it is just a gimmick and Sony's way to try and produce something technically impressive. But being that it is still a feature for this keypad, I will mention what I think of it. It is absolutely terrible! It is so unresponsive, it is almost funny! You will never use it again once you've tried it, I can guarantee it!
In conclusion, it is a great keypad for quick messaging. I am very happy with my purchase. Do not look at any other keypad, get yourself an official one 'cause you'll be doing yourself an injustice otherwise. Make sure you buy it from a reputable company.
Very convenient for when you need to send a message or use text.. much faster than using the default setting keyboard. From using a pc/laptop keyboard you may find typing on the PS3 keypad a little hard at first with the keys being so small, but you adapt to that quickly. Anyone with large hands would definitely struggle with it.
Everyone else = Recommended.
