Pros Wireless Keyboard
Cons No number keypad (not in the picture at least) and probably pricey like most bluetooth keyboards.
Summary This is a response to the editors comment: "The biggest drawback of the keyboard is that it doesn't have any PS3-centric buttons (Circle, Square, Cross, Triangle, Select, Start, and so forth) built into the keyboard itself. One major problem with using Sony's Web browser on the PS3 is that, in order to call up the address bar, you have to hit the Start button on the PS3 controller." On a standard keyboard (wired and with the latest update installed) you can use ESC for circle(back), F1 for triangle (to call up submenu on the browser and xmb) and ENTER for cross. Everything else can be navigated from there. I am sure that the wireless keyboard functions the same. Actually navigating the net with the previously mentioned buttons and the mouse would be similiar to using a laptop and touchpad mouse (on the side instead of in the middle of the keyboard).
Pros It's Bluetooth so it doesn't take up a USB port on your PS3. It's black and has the 4 PS buttons they say it doesn't. It works just as promised. Batteries last 4 months of every night use.
Cons Letter on the keys are wearing off. No PS button. Very cheap feel.
Summary I bought this when I bought my first PS3. It has outlasted that PS3, but, I play Home almost every night which involves heavy typing. After 28 months the E A S D L O M N C keys are now blank. The letters are printed on the keys and have worn off.
I actually bought this for web surfing on the PS3. At the time I had no idea how horrible the browser in the PS3 was and still is. It sat unused until Home came to open beta so it only has 2 years use on it.
If you want a Bluetooth keyboard for your PS3 this is the cheapest one I can find at $83.00. If you don't mind losing a USB port to a wireless keyboard or if you sit close enough a wired keyboard then this is your only real option. And that just sucks.
Pros Lets you enter test without using the PS3 controller.
Cons Won't work in games.
Summary I do not own this keyboard but I did look into it and check it out at my local electronics store. I think the touch pad is just a gimmick and much prefer a mouse. How can you get a mouse you ask? The CNET reviewer says other cordless keyboards don't work, but that's completely false. I picked up a Rocketfish keyboard and mouse combo, both cordless. Bluetooth. They come with a USB dongle but you don't need it because it works great using the PS3s internal Bluetooth. I have also seen a dedicated PS3 cordless mouse available with an off-hand controller for your other hand. There are plenty of wireless keyboard options available for the PS3 now. Just Google it.
Pros i like that its a wire less key board and all just on that its great
Cons but i play final fantasy XI online and you cant use the keyboard on it cause once the game starts up you must push the ps button to reconnect the controller and . . . . no ps button so the whole thing stops registering.
Summary so ya if you only use it for web surfing and in ps home great but any one looking to use it on ffxi god luck
Pros Price was only $20. Not a refurbished unit.; Works right out of the box; battery is included; touchpad and buttons work well; Substitute buttons work well: F1-triangle; ESC-O; Enter-X. Simple style.
Cons Key strokes feel a little bit on the cheap side for a keyboard with a price tag of $80 retail. Silver colour does not match the PS3 console.
Summary Overall it's a good wireless USB keyboard functionally. It could have a richer feel to the materials used and feel of the keystroke is somewhat cheap. Touchpad works effectively in browser and XMB mode. Great buy over the $50 wireless keypad or $80 bluetooth one from logitech.
