5.0 out of 5 stars Not a gimmick, great addon, September 13, 2007
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Xbox 360 Messenger Kit (Video Game)
The 360 chatpad is a much-needed relief from the thumbstick method of typing messages on Xbox Live.

I have larger hands, so leaving it attached to the controller doesn't bother me while I play games. If you have smaller hands or the chat pad bothers you while playing, you can simply detach or leave detached until you need it to type.

Since it takes up the space on the controller normally allocated to the Xbox Live headset, MS has included a new headset that works with the chatpad.

I found it very easy to type with the chatpad, and overall I think it is a must-have accessory for anyone with a friends list!

The keys light up for easy use in the dark, and there is a one-press MSN button for those that want to chat in between gaming sessions. MS has really outdone themselves on this one. The 360 chatpad is an exceptional accessory for less than the price of a new game!

I don't see your comment adding much to the review, either Nuno! Double shame on you!

Eric, I find your review to be very helpful and affirming. In fact, I have a cosmic feeling that we purchased our Messenger Kits at precisely the exact time. Thank you for enriching my 360 gaming experience, Microsoft!

Or you could have spent half the money and bought an USB keyboard. It works just as well for chatting and is about half the price.

I guess that some feel that they need to buy everything just because it says Microsoft on it.

Or maybe you have an Xbox 360 situated such that a USB keyboard is impractical...

$10-20 for a USB keyboard... $5-20 for a 3.5mm jack headset. Convenience of integrating keyboard with a controller and a headset, well, that's subjective. But you'd spend $15-40 on a similar setup that'd not be nearly as convenient as this.

And, right now, it's on sale for $23.

Tack on the price of a USB extension, most people sit further than 4 feet from the television, and you're spending more money for something for people and pets to trip on.

Jason,
You reviewed this product, so apparently you own one. Some feel they need to own everything just because it says Microsoft on it? I dunno, you tell me.

Paslay > Jason. lol

This is a good product though, definitely better than going with the stupid USB keyboard. (I've tried both)

This product is basically wireless and easily attached/unattached... how can you go wrong for under $20?? (current sale price)

I just purchased this, and I got a regular 360 headset that does not work with the chatpad. Was I supposed to get a headset that does work with the chatpad?
