This mini keyboard is pretty awesome and I could'nt find a black so im getting a whit e and it will look awesome
Makes writing quick messages to friends a lot quicker and easier, and has an added bonus of changing the centre of gravity of the controller closer to the person holding it, making it even more comfortable to hlod.
Mini Keyboard is good.. doesnt get too much in the way while using controller… but would suggest a wireless (normal) keyboard if you type lots of messages Headset is too big on its smallest setting and foam piece on other side from earphone ends up on your ear… not very comfy to use, I would suggest a set from a cell phone
As for the chat pad: I don't really use it for messaging but it's brilliant for searching for things on youtube and bing and makes life a lot easier when playing games like The Elder Scrolls series where is common to be renaming thing and makes setting up profiles much quicker. All in all I don't think there is any real, “short term” payoff to this but in the long run it's well worth it. And the headset: I got a pair with my Xbox when I bought it so my tenancy to leave it in the draw is entirely due to a learned appreciation for Xbox live, for the most part, its comfortable and user friendly but can take some getting used to and considering that for the entire time this has been on my wish list, the chat pad alone has been $10 more than the chat pad + headset and as is so often the case, I couldn't find a better price for this new without some severe haggling (after 10 minutes I got away with saving on postage and four cents).
In short: highly recommended for anyone that uses any apps and games that require a bit of typing and anyone that messages a lot.
Great accessory, I was hesitant as I have black controllers but could not find a black version. Regardless it operates great and actually looks pretty good with the black controller contrasting colours. Only annoying this is the lack of a Facebook shortcut but ti was obviously created before it was a feature.
Really nice to get when you have a controller for your pc. You don't need to type with you real key board when its so… so far away, you just plug it into your xbox controller and start typing with comfort and ease.
