I got it for Christmas and I like it. It beats using the on screen keyboard by a mile. The buttons are on the tiny side and you need a light on to use it. Other than that it is very good. If you have large, fat fingers, this may not be for you. It is virtually weightless, you can even use it without being on the controller which is sometimes better than it on the controller.
I recommend it to any PS3 user who does not have large fingers and lives in a bat cave. :lol:
Very well tooled piece of hardware. Responsive, Easy to set up, and a breeze to use. Highly recommended. Though the mouse function is virtually useless, its still so much better than typing with a controller.
A backlight would be have been very welcome though.
Hi! For CHristmas my wife bought me the new Keypad for the controller and also a few months a go she bought me the logitech pro series blu-tooth keyboard I feel that I will probably be sticking with the full sized blutooth keyboard myself. The small one for the pad is nice don't get me wrong, but I feel there is nothing like having a full sized wireless keyboard. Plus it has a touch mouse pad and all of the B-Ray player controls are hotkeyed right on the keyboard. It really makes everything a breeze! It also allows me to have an actual conversation in HOME without looking up and discovering the person I was messaging has walked away and lost interest because I couldn't get my response out fast enough!
I also have short kinda stubby fingers and the small keys on the little keypad are just too easy to mis-stroke. For a few extra bucks get the actual fullsized keyboard, if you've got the money and the little bit of space you'll need to place it down.
Picked mine up 2 weeks ago and love it. I have regular hands so the buttons aren't much of a problem for me. Like pretty much everyone else said, backlight would have been good to have, but if you know the general layout of a regular keyboard you shouldn't have too much trouble with this one. I didn't go with a full size keyboard because I like having the keypad right there on the controller. No need to put down the controller to pick up the keyboard.
wireless USB keyboard[/URL] (although I got it on sale for $20 about 2 years ago) from my PC when I'm in Home. it works great. It's light and thin. I don't see myself buying the PS3 wireless keypad right now.
