Summary: I love playing around on Playstation Home. The onscreen keyboard interface takes me a long time to type out simple messages. Because of that, I decided to purchase a keypad. The $40 for Sony's keypad seemed a bit steep, so I purchased this brand instead. Boy do I regret that decision.
Good for those who want to type fast without having a full-sized keyboard next to you

Excerpt: The keypad attaches to the Sixaxis or Dualshock PS3 controllers and allows you to use all of the buttons on the controller whilst having the extra buttons of a standard keyboard. This makes it particularly important in social games or in applications such as PS Home.
Last Keypad/Messenger I ever buy for a controller!

Excerpt: I had the Messenger Kit for the Xbox 360 which was quickly sold due to the illogical design of attaching it to the bottom. As a result, you couldn't fully hold the controller and it felt uncomfortable, especially if playing for more than an hour. Sony have responded with a similar accessory.
