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. After reading these reviews, I faithfully charged up the keypad for a full 24 hours so that I wouldn't have any problems. Well...
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. The keypad attaches so that the keyboard is above the controllers buttons.
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. It is true that the design is superior as it attaches to the top of the PS3 controller.
