    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.

    Very nice product, can recommend

    • Written by from Naples

    I'm actually stunned at some of the moronic reviews on this product by people not understanding how it works and how BT works. This critter is a nice piece of engineering and works reliably. Bluetooth, though, can be quite finicky, and that's not Belkin's fault. As to the 'delays'- it's normal, people, for the device to sleep or else it would tear through batteries. Sheesh.

    I support users who throw up their hands and scream 'it won't work' from the other room when all they have to do is know how to use their tools. That pretty much sums up the comments here.

    Works!

    Using it for Numeric Entry into QuickBooks, it connected just fine and works well. To move along entries in QuickBooks you need to hit "Tab" and not "Enter," I am still trying to figure out how to assign "Tab" to one of the function keys, but that is pretty much my only complaint. Keys feel similar to my MBP. Battery life good so far.

    Shift + PageUp/PageDown/Home/End doesn't working

    • Written by from Budapest

    The numeric keypad working well with my iMac 2011 and OSX 10.9.1, but the SHIFT+PageDown/PageUp/Home/End doesn't works. So I need to use SHIFT+fn+down arrow or SHIFT+fn+up arrow to select/highlight lines from text (eg. in XCode)

    Difficult start (installation instructions rubbish) but good product

    • Written by from Bilzen

    Installation of this keypad following the 'installation manual' proved difficult: iMAC running OS 10.9 detected it as a keyboard, but then try to press the key next to the left shift key... Retrying several times did not bring any improvements. By accident I found out that it was coupled anyway and worked quite well.
    Shape and key presses are like the apple keyboard; tint differs slightly. Sleep mode works fine too.
    All in all, worth the purchase. Definitely much better than using the magic trackpad as numpad (with Mobee cover & sw: no good due to missing key press feeling).

    Nicely done, except...

    • Written by from Queens Village

    the lack of battery percentage like the Apple keyboard and trackpad. You don't know how much battery is left until it just stops working. Otherwise, I like it.
