The keyboard works well, but the positioning left a lot to be desired. I really liked the placement of the 360 chatpad as it sits below the controller instead of above. It felt as though while using the ps3 pad I'd have to reach above the controller to type a message and then re-position my hands back on the controller. It also made the controller top heavy as the analog sticks were no longer the center of gravity. The 360 pad felt more natural in allowing me to barely slide my thumbs down. It also allowed the controller itself to feel a little more balanced overall.

The only thing keeping this keyboard from rating higher to me was the placement.

Yesterday I picked up Sony’s keyboard peripheral for PS3 controllers.

As a keyboard, this thing is great. It’s thinner than I expected, and just clips onto the controller easily. It doesn’t actually “connect” to the controller in any way, so you could actually use it separately if you really wanted to. It’s a Bluetooth keyboard that you pair to your PS3 by connecting the two with a USB cable momentarily. This is also how you charge the keyboard’s on-board battery. The keyboard is surprisingly thin, and doesn’t get in the way at all when gaming, which is nice.

As a cursor for navigating the XMB or whatever, this thing sucks. It has a mode you can put it in which makes all the keys behave somewhat like one big trackpad. This feature didn’t work very well for me at all, but I didn’t care that much since I have no need for such a feature anyway. UPDATE: I had indeed neglected to calibrate the keyboard. Once I did that, it worked much better. But I still don’t need it. :)

I think this keyboard is great. It does everything that I want, and does it well.
