    Just won't work

    • Written by from Slingerlands

    Sorry to say I can't recommend it. POJ. Disconnects when it feels like it. I'm repeatedly trying to get it reconnected. And even when the unit appears to be connected, it doesn't work. Then all of a sudden it will type the last thirty characters I pressed to see if it's working. Like this 99298983939398. (I waited about 3 minutes for that little demonstration.) Belkin usually has great stuff. Not this time. Looks like I'm getting a cabled keyboard.

    Works fine for me

    I use it for my new MBPr, and in Windows on Bootcamp. Keypad feels just like any other Apple keyboard that I've used. Set up was no problem.

    Works Flawlessly !!!

    • Written by from New York

    I have the Belkin Bluetooth Keypad along Apple's Wireless keyboard and Apple's Magic Mouse. All three Bluetooth devices are connected to a 2013 iMac.

    The Keypad pairs with the iMac in a couple of seconds and stays connected without any issues whatsoever. All the keys work flawlessly. I can even use the Keypad to wakeup the iMac, which I think is a testament of how well it integrates with the iMac.

    The keys are very, very responsive. The Keypad looks and feels like an Apple product, except for small bulge on the underside. It seems that Belkin could not figure out how to pack the electronics like only Apple does.

    The only limitation I find is that there is no way to check how much charge the batteries have. But, I can use the status of Apple's Wireless Keyboard as a reference. So, I replace all the batteries at once. Although, I think the Keypad batteries should last longer since it gets the least amount of use among all the three devices.

    Overall, I'm very impressed with how seamlessly the Keypad integrates with the rest of the system. I'll pickup another one soon for my MacBook Pro.

    Pairs w/ my MacBook, but doesn't work

    • Written by from VASS

    Very disappointing item by Belkin. The keyboard pairs with my MacBook bluetooth settings, but it won't type anything, which makes it entirely useless. I wish Apple would make its own wireless (or wired) keyboard pad for MacBooks.

    Works well for the most part but some odd omissions

    • Written by from CHICAGO

    I had a different keypad before this, one that was made of plastic, had an appalling battery cover, and dropped signal. This one is made of metal, has a proper metallic screw-in battery cover, and has not dropped signal once.

    I'm hesitating to give it a higher rating though because Belkin inexcusably left the battery power rating out of this device, which my otherwise horrible plastic thing had. Also, if you're going to go to the trouble of machining aluminum, Apple style, it would be nice to get the keyboard action right as well. The Belkin key action is pretty soft and you need to lighten up a bit when using it, compared to the standard keyboard.

    If you're going to charge $50 for this thing, you need to be getting this kind of stuff right. As it is, a fair price would be $30. But I ponied up and paid the freight anyway because there's nothing else that's even close to this one in usability and ergonomics.

    Don't waste your time or money

    • Written by from Littleton

    The new iOS does not recognize this keypad as a 10 key. The first one I purchased wouldn't even power on. The store exchanged it for me and the apple guy spent 30 minutes trying to connect. I've spent over an hour trying to troubleshoot, driving to the store twice and still no connection. Stick with a USB keypad until Apple and Belkin figure it out. It asks to press the button next to the shift key, there is no shift key! It will save you loads of frustration and lost productivity to skip this item.

    Seemed like a good idea

    • Written by from Black Diamond

    Matched the Apple Wireless Keyboard well, BUT when starting to type there is a significant delay for it to re-synch to the computer. Sometimes it takes a really long time and while your waiting your keystrokes are cached. So when it finally connects, it starts sending all of your keystrokes at once. However, that might be fine in some cases, but you never know what keystrokes it started at. Meaning, if you type 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 it might start listening at 3 and connect at 7 immediately sending "3, 4, 5, 6, 7" and "8" as you type it. I need something like this that works like the Apple keyboard or better yet, an Apple Wireless keyboard WITH the numeric keypad section.

    Put the batteries in, paired it to my Mac, has worked flawlessly for 2 months. Would be nice if it had a battery percentage meter like the Apple keyboard but other than that it does exactly as advertised.

    Very Disappointing!

    • Written by from Cape Coral

    I just bought my first Mac and was surprised that the keypad was an add-on. However, I did buy this wireless keypad to go with the wireless keyboard. After 4 or 5 days the keypad stopped working - would not stay on and connected. I changed the batteries using brand new Duracell batteries. Worked for a few days then back to the same old problem. I went to the local Apple store and was told that was a frequent problem and I should take the batteries out and and put them back in. If that did not work I should change them again. Much to my surprise when I took the batteries out they had battery acid all over them! I could be wrong but I don't think the problem really started with the batteries. I think the keypad is bad but of course, I have no recourse because I changed the batteries. I love my Mac but was disappointed with this accessory.

    Poor Quality

    After trying for four days with my new iMac this keypad has worked 10% of the time. I've made an appointment at the Apple store to trade both the key pad and key board for a usb model.

    As I type this, I have tried and tried and tried to get it to pair. Bluetooth sees the device correctly....but when I hit continue..."attempting to pair" is as far as I get. Never pairs with my new MacPro.

    This thing was a total waste of money. It feels soooo cheap and the color does not match the stock keyboard. It is low quality and overpriced. I will be returning mine.

    Best numeric keypad ever! (plus installation instructions)

    • Written by

    For years I've been using a lousy SMK-Link wireless numeric keypad; it was very annoying, as when it goes to sleep, you have to hit a special "wake" key, it used short-lived AAA batteries, and the flimsy battery-eject strap broke the first time I changed the batteries (forcing me to pry the batteries out with a knife), and it was made out of cheap plastic.

    A couple of weeks ago, I replaced it with the Belkin keypad, and I'm extremely pleased with it. You hit ANY key and it wakes up, it uses two longer-lasting AA batteries just like the Apple keyboard does, the batteries are very easy to change, it's made of solid metal and the keys have a great feel to them.

    I use this keypad every day almost exclusively with Quicken, the Windows accounting software I use for my business. A real bonus is that the keypad works flawlessly with Parallels and Windows, whether you're working on the Mac or Windows side. I also appreciate the inclusion of a redundant Delete key (so you don't have to switch between the keypad and the main keyboard to make corrections), and also the "magnifying glass" key which takes you straight to the search box in your current app without having to use the mouse.

    Belkin made a HUGE mistake with the quick-start installation leaflet... when you first pair the keypad, OS X will ask you to press the key to the right of the Shift key in order to auto-identify the keyboard, and of course the keypad doesn't have a Shift key. You simply click Continue (which Belkin fails to tell you) and manually select "US/ANSI" as the keyboard type.

    Unfortunately, many people have rated this keypad with only one or two stars, reflecting their frustration with setting it up. It really is much better than the ratings imply, as long as you know the magic secret to setting it up. I hope Belkin corrects the quick-start leaflet in the future.

    Will not pair with my Mini or MacBook Pro. You are instructed to press a key that does not exist on the keyboard to pair. Boo!

    Awful

    I thought it was just me, until I logged in here to see other's experience. I am lucky if it types anything at all. When it does, it lags behind by 10-20 seconds. Very frustrating. I'm done.
    DO NOT BUY THIS PIECE OF GARBAGE!!!!

    Don't waste your time with this keypad

    • Written by from Fairfield

    I've had this for about 2 months, and it just doesn't work. I've tried everything including 2 calls to their customer support which were a complete waste of hours as they could not help at all.

    One out of ten times, it connects and works fine for a while, but then just loses its connection and you're done. Most other times it just won't connect at all no matter what I do. A few times I would hit some numbers to test it out and nothing happens, and then a few minutes later all of the numbers start appearing on my spreadsheet. It's like there was a 2 minute lag!

    I just ordered the Apple extended wired keyboard so I can get some work done. If you must have a wireless keypad, try another one because this one will just waste your time.

    Works!

    • Written by from Scottsdale

    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.

    Will it link?

    • Written by from Vineyard Haven

    We purchased this to have a 10-key pad for our new MacBook Pro. The Bluetooth recognized it, but the keys wouldn't work. We brought it back to the store, their tech support worked a half-hour trying to get it to work. They had to give me my money back. Maybe it works with other laptops, but not with MacBook Pro!
