5.0 out of 5 stars Make sure it "clicks" and then type away March 19, 2011

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have had my Xbox 360 for a couple years, but I never had invested in a chatpad. The live voice chat, I thought, made typing messages fairly rare. But as I played more online co-op and versus games, the occasions come up when you want to thank another player for playing honorably, or finishing the campaign despite the late hour, or whatever. Picking letters using the joystick and screen is a fairly laborious process, so I bought the chatpad.

At first, I thought it didn't work. I had attached it to the controller, but the chatpad did not seem to work. Make sure it "Clicks" on both sides of your controller. The fit is very snug, and I do not think it was intended to come on and off regularly. Once the chatpad was snapped into place properly, it worked brilliantly.

The chatpad is a great add-on for your controller:
1) the chatpad has an access point for the standard xbox 360 wired headset.
2) the chatpad is very light and does not in any way interfere with the controller.
3) the chatpad letters/numbers are backlit when you start typing.
4) the chatpad works fine with the Xbox 360 Black Play & Charge Kit and also works with Xbox 360 Energizer Power and Play Charging System - Black. You do not have to remove the chatpad to charge your controller. NOTE: CHATPAD WILL HAVE TO BE REMOVED TO CHARGE YOUR CONTROLLER WITH

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been looking out for this item for a few months now, and shockingly I found it here on Amazon. I couldn't find it online anywhere or in stores. I refused to buy the White Chat Pad kit thats been out here on online stores, and on the shelves in retail stores. I wasn't sure if this was really the original black Chat Pad at first, and was thinking twice about purchasing it. I just took my chances, and I'm glad I did. This matches great with my new Xbox 360 25O GB Hard Drive Console. Looks great, matches, easy to use, keypad lights up for use when playing with the lights off, and most importantly relieves me of the time it takes to reply to messages from friends, and posting messages on my facebook. Great product, highly recommend it. This isn't the knock off "White" playback Chat Pad that they custom paint Black that you find on e Bay that people are selling for like $50.00. I Got my product on time and for a great price, with free shipping, I was satisfied. Can't say anything bad about this Chat Pad, it's great and ofcourse this comes complete with the new all black live headset. Great way to get your game on, and save yourself lots of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic deal for those who got the 4GB slim December 30, 2010
Verified Purchase
I wanted to play Xbox Live online with my friends on Christmas Day with my new 4GB Xbox 360, but I hadn't realized that it doesn't come with a headset. For just a few dollars more than the headset, you can get a headset and a nice, backlit QWERTY chatpad.

The layout is a little awkward- for example, apostrophes are square + J. Not that it's a big deal, you get used to it quickly. Oddly enough, when it's attached to my controller, it looks like a modern Atari Jaguar controller.

The chatpad isn't limited to Facebook and Twitter as the box may suggest; you can use it anytime the on-screen keyboard pops up. I also noticed that pressing A, B, X, and Y on the chatpad do the same as their colored button counterparts when there's no on-screen keyboard.

Bottom line: if you need a headset, just get this. On the occasion that you need to type something, it's so much better to tap it out on the chatpad than using the D-pad at 4 words per minute.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Deal! This is the Legit Black chatpad September 9, 2010

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been waiting for this chatpad since I saw it on the box of my new xbox 360 slim. I just got the chatpad today and I can say so far so good. Mic works through the jack. Everything works just as expected. No regrets, buy now and match your black 360 controller with this awesome black chatpad.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very nifty keypad, but bulky and uncomfortable December 12, 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Using the thumbsticks to enter text messages or reward codes has always been a time consuming process. Plugging in a USB keyboard gives you the capability of typing in text more rapidly. However, the chatpad offers a more integrated approach. Unfortunately, the chatpad is rather bulky and uncomfortable to grip for long periods of time. I can always feel the seam and overlap from the chatpad, and the inside edges can catch my fingernails from time to time. It adds quite a bit of bulk to the wireless controller. The backlit keys are a nice touch though.

Overall: 3/5 stars.

I'd recommend that Microsoft release a Bluetooth wireless keyboard, sort of like a medium sized table controller for a media center, for the Xbox that one could store on a table top without taking up too much space.

5.0 out of 5 stars replaced headset with a chatpad! October 5, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
well, I broke my husband's headset and got into an argument blah blah :D I got free gift codes from swagbucks (if anyone wants to know what it is just reply) so I ordered a Chatpad as a replacement because it is cheaper, and convenient to use. Hubby was at work when item arrived so I set it up but the Chatpad wouldn't work and I almost panicked. I had to reconnect the chatpad a few times and it worked after I pushed it hard and it snapped in place.

So when you set up your chatpad make sure to push the chatpad onto the controller with even pressure until they snap together. There should be no gaps. - from Xbox support :)

Product works great after set up. Will update review if there are any issues with it which I hope not!
