Yes it is, I have it in several locations.

Create your desired datasheet view in the list, go to your web part page and add the list web part and change the view to use the datasheet view.

I tried it.. But my Datasheet view is always read-only in the webpart. What to do for it? – neo269 Jul 20 '12 at 12:17
Depending what coulmns you have in the view can make it read only. Try removing one at a time to see what columns are triggering it to be read only. – Eric Alexander Jul 20 '12 at 12:20
Have tried it! Works perfectly on SP2010. In WSS it was a pain to make it work!! Thanks @PirateEric – neo269 Jul 27 '12 at 11:51
