PS3 Wireless Keypad Review
30 November 2010
Conclusion: If you want a faster way to input text on your PS3, this keypad won’t disappoint. There are no major complaints here, other the rather high price (but we all know how the game console manufacturers are pricing their accessories, don’t we?
Pros: Nice design and integration with the existing controller, rechargeable / USB interface, wireless!!!, very good way to do a fast Netflix / Hulu search
Cons: somewhat high price, although not as expensive as Logitech stuff, touch pad sucks, no back-lit
Conclusion: If you really want to enter a lot of text on your PlayStation 3 for PlayStation Home or web browsing you really are better off getting a cheap USB keyboard and saving your money for an actual game. It's faster than using the on-screen virtual keyboard but not by much.
Conclusion: Since I actively use HOME and chat through my PS3 console, having this keypad attachment is a welcome addition to my product library. While those are the main reasons to utilize a keypad or keyboard, with the way Sony is releasing innovative software for their console, who’s to say the wont release...
Excerpt: Sore thumbs... you has them. Text chatting, mouse scrolling, and typing into a search bar are all a big pain in the arse when you are peripheral-less. You want to surf the web on your PS3, chat in the Home beta, or maybe just enter in text during a game without having to use your face buttons.
Pros: you can't stand choosing letters with a controller
Conclusion: Neither of these issues gets in the way of how well the unit works overall. The Wireless Keypad certainly makes the whole process of showing everyone what a literary genius looks like without getting in the way of a good fragging.
