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.

Some friends and I tried these triggers out last night. These things are great! They feel very integrated into the controller, as if the controller was built that way. They look great too.

I can't think of anything negative to say about these, except that it's hard to find them in Canada. I had to have a friend from the States mail me some.

I found that this headset worked as advertised. It did everything pretty well, though you have to pair it directly with the USB cable (not using the base) in order to get all the functionality out of it. The documentation didn't say that you'd be missing out on screen status updates about the headset if you paired it via Bluetooth.

The sound quality is excellent. I heard some other people with this headset talking, and it sounded great. I wish everyone used a headset of this sound quality.

As to comfort, that's where this headset really falls down. I cannot get it into my ear comfortably, no matter how I try.

Plus it's a bit expensive.
