Either I'm an old blind guy with fat fingers, or this thing is too damn small!!!,
This review is from: PS3 Wireless Keypad (Video Game)
Once Sony flipped the switch on Home, I saw an ad for this keyboard in the Home mall. Two or three stunted interactions with fellow gamers (most likely teenagers who could kick the snot out of me in any FPS, with their eyes closed), I realized the hunt and peck method of data entry using the PS3 remote was aggravating at best, time-consuming at worst.
After striking out at all box stores in the days leading up to and after Christmas, I finally found the PlayStation 3 Wireless keypad on Amazon. Once charged up, I took it for a spin, using it to enter URLs while using the PS3 broswer.
Unless you have thin, delicate fingers, be prepared to fat-finger the hell out this thing... even with the extensive Blackberry Curve keyboard typing experience, I was a misspelling fool for the first day or two... My only complaint (aside from being cursed with apparently pudgy fingers, is that the alternate key values (accessed by shifting between two buttons on the top left and right of the device) do not "pop" against the black device background, forcing me to hold the controller to my nose to see if I was typing a : or a ;.
Pros: Device is well balanced and unobtrusive. I keep it on my controller even while playing games that do not require its use. Battery life seems to be of the same caliber of the remotes themselves, ensuring hours of uninterrupted play (or until the wife makes me shut down.) Pairing with the PS3 was quick and easy.
Buy it, get used to it, and you'll be typing away in no time... just be prepared to use the backspace liberally.

this is the most halarious review I have read..... EVER.... and yes I too, suffer from the curse of the "Pudge Finger" as well as what I call "Little Font Syndrom" I keep getting Bigger TV's and the Fonts keep getting Smaller. WTF's with that!!! Remember the days of Tube TV's and PS 1 and Ps2... I could at least Read the RPG Games! I told my husband that we need a 1000 inch TV so I can Read the PS3 games once more.
I am still tossed up with this PS3 Controller Saddle and the Logitec Keyboard : ) thanks for the great review dude
