    I own two - One still works

    • Written by from Granbury

    Less than 12 months into owning this, one of the two units I purchased has stopped working. At first, it failed to connect to bluetooth. I'd manually have to rediscover it. It would work for a session. I'd have to repeat that each session. Sometimes a key would stick (not physically - all keys were fine visually) and the Mac would sound like a machine gun until I opened Settings to undiscover the number pad. What a pain. What a disappointment. The one that still works is pure perfection and I dread the day it too stops working. I guess I should give this a 2-1/2 star rating since I'm currently 1 for 2, but I really think any failure (and it would appear from the reviews, mine is far from an isolated case) should be reported as a 1 star rating. And yet NO OTHER VENDOR (including Apple) has addressed the obvious need for this product!? What am I not understanding about 10-key number pads here? C'mon, Apple. Step-up!

    Disappointing, would not recommend it

    • Written by from Battice

    Connection fails every 10 seconds, quality is mediocre compared to Apple's keyboards.
    I would not recommend this product especially in regard to the price

    Don't Buy it!!!

    • Written by from CHICAGO

    After working with the wireless Belkin Keypad for a year, it safe to say after chances given "Don't buy it!". Apple should call Belkin to the Round table and give them a tongue lashing and tell them to "Step up and contact Our customer and make it right!'. I only bought it because I thought Apple back it up and I even gave it a extended chance. I work with customers live over the phone and on chat line, and I get credit card information and my calls are monitored, how embarrassing that I have to ask them to repeat the Credit info because the kepad lagged and didn't record the numbers correctly! How disappointing for Apple to allow this! I will never buy another Belkin product and it makes me wonder who in Apple is the Bedfellow with this Company? Shame on you guys!!

    Also very disapointing

    • Written by from Almere

    I bought this wireless keypad, because I use a lot of financial data.
    A wireless keypad is very handy.
    Unfortunaly the keypad would conect to my Imac and when it does sometimes
    it is only for a few moments.
    I realy can not recommend this item, if you want soemthing like this, please look further.
    I find it a waste of good money and not price worthy.

    Doesn't Work!

    • Written by from Camberwell

    I only have one thing to say and that is that this terrible piece of junk doesn't even work! It connects by bluetooth then you can tap on every single key and the mac will not recognise any of them! What a joke! DO NOT BUY!

    Doesn't work with Yosemite

    • Written by from Rochester Hills

    Since updating to OS X 10.10.1, this keypad connects, but provides no input. Belkin's website is a joke. Useless, pretty piece of metal now.

    Good but not great

    • Written by from Moorebank

    The numpad when sitting side by side with the genuine apple wireless keyboard looks identical and matches the apple keyboards profile perfectly.

    If the Key strokes on the numpad felt the same as the apple keyboard I would have rated it 5 stars.

    I use the numpad for data entry in MYOB and it works great. I Have none of the issues others have noted in their reviews i.e. connectivity issues.

    The Numpad powers down into standby mode after a period of inactivity, and when you resume using it it buffers your keystrokes until it powers on and connects with your machine then sends the buffered strokes to your machine, this happens in a second or less and causes no issues for me.

    Battery life is good it has been in use for several months now without needing the batteries replaced and used daily.

    If apple made a wireless keyboard with a full set of keys I would purchase this over the welkin numpad but they don't so this will do and is preferable over a wired keyboard.

    Belkin Bluetooth Wireless Keypad

    • Written by from San Mateo

    I am not sure why so many negative reviews for this product, I had no problems whatsoever syncing the keypad with my Mac. Exactly what I was looking for. However, it's too early to tell how long the battery will last.

    Almost perfect

    • Written by from Moscow

    Sorry for my bad english, but this product is so cool, then i decide to write this review. Everything works as it should be. Even on Windows ran through parallels desktop. As wrote earlier, there is no battery indicator. It's only the deficiency. Must have anyway.

    Bushleague Setup...but works

    • Written by from Calgary

    I got this working (via online customer support) just before returning it. The key was, believe it or not, removing and reinserting the batteries. They would save a lot of agony if they included that tidbit in the quick start guide....and also the fact that it doesn't recognize it for the device it is, but rather another full sized keyboard....and you have to do a workaround and select the US keyboard option. It works but it was quite the runaround to get there. My guess is a lot of people return this item who just don't know to reinstall the batteries, I almost did.

    Seems to be working fine now, so far so good.

    Two down...

    • Written by from Healdsburg

    I've now purchased two of these key pads. The first one paired, after some difficulty with appearing and then disappearing. For a short time it worked as advertised. Within a month, however, the first one failed completely. I got a second on which seemed to work better. However, after three months, it, too, failed completely. I would not recommend the purchase of this keypad.

    Unreliable

    • Written by from Brighton

    This is a piece of junk. When you do get it connected after hour of frustration, it is slow, cuts out and stops working. There is no warning, but it gets worse when the battery life gets low. Mine is now a door stop as it will not work at all, even with new batteries. I cannot believe a quality company like apple has these in their stores. Less than 1 star!!!!

    Waste of money

    • Written by from Ashburton

    I should have read the reviews before buying this. I thought it would complement by wireless Apple keyboard, but it consistently drops out and have trouble reconnecting as well as incredibly short battery life. I have decided to just buy an Apple corded keyboard with a number pad.

    Not reliable

    • Written by from Toronto

    Was not working in 3 weeks - just could not switch it on.
    Does not show battery level (in comparison to Apple wireless devices) - very inconvenient.

    Piece of Junk...

    • Written by from Santa Rosa

    Purchased this because I've always been faster at inputting numbers with a 10-key over using the top row of the keyboard. Fit and finish is first-rate... but that's about it. First off it eats batteries like no device I've ever had. It doesn't automatically turn on (during boot up) or shut down like other bluetooth devices, and it freezes up continually which requires turn it off and on. I've tried deleting and pairing it again and every other thing I can think of. Now it just sits (unused) on my desk.

    Absolutely Love!

    • Written by from Park City

    I was quite leery about this product after reading the reviews. However, I went ahead and purchased from the Apple Store and brought it home, put the batteries in, followed the Quick Install Guide (5 steps), the tricky part is that after pairing, you'll be asked to press button to the right of the shift key (doesn't exist) simply continue and select "US/ANSI" and your set!

    Perfect

    • Written by from Saugerties

    Despite all the poor reviews I took a chance. Set up was a bit strange as its added as another keyboard and then the setup wizard thinks it's a keyboard and doesn't recognize what type of keyboard it is...just close that out of the wizard as no further setup is required. I had to call Belkin about this as it was confusing...looks like it might be more of an apple issue than a Belkin issue, but not sure. Once it's set up though it works great...fast entry and wakes up from sleeping very quickly. Looks great too, I'm very happy.

    works for me!

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    Because of the amount of negative reviews I was hesitant to buy this, but being that I didn't really see another equivalent one I figured I'd give it a try. Once you get past the slightly awkward process of pairing, things seem to be fine. I found that it was already paired when it asked for the key next to the (nonexistent) SHIFT, so I just closed the window and voila. I had read enough of these reviews ahead of time to be forewarned on this easy solution, but I would definitely recommend Belkin to update their installation guide.

    The only caveat I have is that I'm currently using the bluetooth keyboard, bluetooth magic mouse, and now the bluetooth keypad and I have seen the lag occasionally in any one of the 3 when I've got them running all at the same time and switching quickly between them. If I'm using only two of the devices everything's fine. And even when I'm using all 3 it's really not that bad - nothing like what it seems other people have encountered - and I would more likely suspect the bluetooth protocol rather than the keypad since the lag happens on any one of the devices.
