The Microsoft Xbox Live Gold Starter Kit is an amazing deal. First the membership at that price. Second the chat pad. This makes browsing through internet explorer and other apps a breeze. Also, chatting back and forth with other players. If you don't want to text chat with them, put on the headset that you get with this package deal. It's not super fancy, but it's simplicity is all you need to start interacting with other players vocally. You also received Microsoft points, which Microsoft has done away with, so now it would just be credit. Everything in this package is a steal.

First into the cart was the Xbox, followed immediately by the Starter Kit. The chat pad is ideal for anyone who ever has to type anything in Live (which is EVERYONE). Seriously. The only downside is that it adds some weight to your controller as well as take a little more from your battery life, however it's an even exchange for the ease of use you get from it. The headphones may be redundant depending on what version of Xbox you have (or if you bought it used), but it's still a good base line set. I keep mine around just in case. Finally the year of Live is essential for anyone who wants to use Netflix, Hulu, or the endless array of Live only products. Basically this is exactly what you need to get the most from your Xbox.

If your just starting out playing the xbox 360 this is the pack you will want to buy. Basically you are paying for a one year live gold membership and getting the chatpad and the headset for free. When I started out with gold this is just what I bought, the chat pad is almost essential if you want to talk to your friends and send messages. I know I couldn't survive with out mine. The headset I could take or leave, as its great to get started, but eventually you will want to upgrade.

This is one of the best purchases I have made accessory wise for my Xbox! So much easier for xbox live and if you need to type in any passwords or anything. Really recommend!! The Xbox live card is also a must so why not get a box with the chat pad, membership and headset?!!

Th chat pad is great, it helps a lot with sending messages faster, and quicker replies. I used it everyday even with netflix and just random chatting. The mic is great too. Sometimes you do however need to have it extremely close to your mouth for it to actually pick up your voice is you're not on the louder side or if you're trying to be quiet but other than that I think everyone needs this!

I am not a fan of the wired headset, but the chat pad makes messaging a ton easier. I usually take forever using just the controller. What is also awesome is that this comes with a year of Xbox live (play to play or talk) and microsoft points that could be used on an arcade game or dlc. In all its worth your money.

This is a great starter kit for families who are just getting the system. It allows people to save money while getting all the necessary and basic gaming essentials for your child to play their game to the best of their ability. The Mic may be a little films, but the keyboard stays in great shape.

Great kit if you're just getting yourself an xbox! The headset and gold membership are a must. I had mixed feelings about the keyboard, as it's somewhat hard to attach and I think in the long run jamming it into your remote if you choose to detach and reattach it, could be harmful to your remote.

I think they just include the headset to get rid of some....because the only reason anybody buys this set is to get the text pad :D It feels kinda large in my hands though they are smaller, and I kinda had to get used to typing on this but after a while i got the hang of it and it's pretty decent and definitely makes sending word messages easier or searching for movies on netflix easier also.

Chat pad is great! makes typing messages, searching for YouTube videos and surfing the internet on your Xbox 36 so simple and fast. The headset is decent if you're just getting started in the gaming world or looking for something cheap.
