Very nifty keypad, but bulky and uncomfortable
on December 12, 2010
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.
