    The keyboard it s so helpful with typing and browsing since the entire keys with a press of a button become a Mouse pad, for browsing on PS3; same concept as using the mouse pad on a notebook with a lil difference that the surface its not smooth but get used to it in matter of sec/min.
    I do have to make a point I desided to write a review here for. One of the reasons it s because I strongly believe people who sell a item and try to be so sneaky with shipping and handling are scammers and I won t support people who are dis/honest. Don t mark down the price if you going to over charge on shipping and the sec it takes to place on a envelop. Should be a policy on scammers who do such thing. No way this item would cost close to 15USD for shipping, it s less then 1/2 a pound. Please don t buy from people who do this pls. Please be honest when selling a item or don t sell it at all. It s discusted enough There hundreds o them on EBay. Stay alway from amazon also.

    I bought this for messaging over PSN with my friends.

    Pros: Nicely made. Doesn t drain DS3 battery. Comes off easily. The touchpad feature is nice, but I never use it because I don t websurf on the PS3.

    Cons: I really wish it had been more like the Xbox 360 messenger keypad. It should be on the bottom between the grips. For $50, having a backlight would have been much better. When I game, I usually have a light on only around the TV, not behind me, so it s hard to read the keys. It s especially hard to see the alternate characters. The buttons are too small and I make frequent errors (maybe I ll get better with practice). I have fairly skinny fingers too. I would have preferred a lower price with a backlight and no touchpad feature. Honestly the analog stick is probably easier for web pointing and clicking.

    Some things are unnecessarily complicated, like Caps Lock. You have press a colored button and then caps lock. Why not just hold down the Shift button for two seconds?

    In comparison, I got the Xbox 360 Live 12 Month Messenger Gold Pack with a keypad, PGR4, 12 month XBL card, and wired headset for almost the same price as this.

    Well its almost perfect if you plan to chat a lot and if u are the one that like to use your play station for internet jobs and so on....

    You have to get used to the touch pad mode...sometimes jump the pointer to nowhere but its not that bad just a little of practice...

    one thing i wanted on this its some kind of glint on the keys you know when you are playing in total dark or something like that

    ...only that
