    Belkin keypad fail

    • Written by from Clarendon Hills

    Looks good but has spotty connection at best and no software to figure out if its battery related or not. Change batteries all the time but doesn't help for long.

    Great - when it wants to work

    • Written by from Williamsville

    I am very disappointed in the product, especially since it is sold in the Apple store. One would think that if Apple sells it, it would work, right? Well, it does - sometimes. There is no telling when it will decide to connect. Sometimes I will forget that it is not working and I keep typing away, not realizing there is a blank space in the spot where I wanted the numbers to be. Then they suddenly appear several lines later. Very frustrating!
    Why couldn't Apple have kept the numeric keypad on the new wireless keyboard???

    Love it, but very short battery life

    • Written by from Columbia

    I found this keypad very useful, but with moderate use the battery life is only a few hours, MUCH shorter than my keyboard or trackpad.

    Very disappointing issues

    • Written by from Petropolis

    1) sometimes it delays to start the typing (when you start to type, it often misses the first number)
    2) The "clear" and "delete" keys has never worked for me
    3) the key strokes are so different form the Apple original keyboard. It is not comfortable.
    4) it doesn't have a comma. So it's only useful for countries that uses the dot for decimals numbers (for me as a Brazilian, it's very disappointing)
    5) doesn't show how much battery life has left

    in the overall helps, but has very disappointing issues

    Unreliable, disappointing

    • Written by from Downers Grove

    Despite the very promising look, this keyboard disappoints. It largely failed to work on a most recent iMac (Late 2013) running OS X 10.9 (Mavericks).

    On my first attempt at Bluetooth pairing, the OS apparently expected a full-size keyboard. I chose Remove device and started over. I got the keyboard to register but only on the third try were key presses actually recognized. This lasted for only a few key presses (5-10 seconds), after which connectivity appeared to fade in and out. Key presses came in only sporadically and if so only in bunches of 10 or so.

    Finally, while the device is less than half as wide as the Apple wireless keyboard it is intended to complement, it weighs disproportionately much – 230 g vs. 330 g.
