    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)

    The replacement keypad works fine.

    • Written by from Columbia

    The original keypad, purchased 12/16/13, had all the problems everyone else has mentioned. I called Apple Support on 1/13/14 and they arranged to have a new one delivered to us on 1/14/14. This one has given us no problems and works exactly like we expected a keypad to work. My wife uses it a lot to input numbers into Excel spread sheets and is very happy with the replacement.

    Not impressed

    • Written by from MACKAY

    I can't get this to work with my macbook pro. There are virtually no instructions. I'm thinking that Belkin may have forgotten that they sell this product. You can't even register it on their website to contact support.

    Great when it works, but…

    • Written by from Frankfort

    I received this keypad as a Christmas gift. I've discovered that when my machine wakes from sleep the keypad registers as connected, but the keystrokes aren't actually seen by the Mac. I've tried a variety of potential solutions including deleting the keyboard from my Bluetooth devices and then adding it again. Although the device pairs successfully keystrokes are still not recorded. The only successful workaround that I've found is to restart the Mac. While this is a pain, the keypad provides me with necessary functionality so it's a pain that I'm willing to bear. What I don't know and have not been able to determine is whether the issue is on the Apple side or the Belkin side.

    Product does not work

    • Written by from Prince Albert

    I purchased this for use with my new Mac Book (OS X). The Mac Book is able to see it but it thinks it is a large keyboard. It keeps asking my to hit the key to the right of the shift key, which is not on a number pad.

    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.

    Real Lemon

    • Written by from Lewes

    I really wanted a wireless numeric key pad. The first one I purchased failed and before it failed completely, it had all the flaws mentioned in the reviews of those who were also disappointed. Delayed key strokes, trouble maintaining connection etc etc… I purchased a replacement and it followed the same trend of issues and as of today, it's completely failed. Belkin is on my no buy list. I will be avoiding their products as much as possible from here on out.

    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.

    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).

    Extremely disappointing

    • Written by from Rancho Cucamonga

    I don't do a lot of numbers crunching, but I still prefer a separate keypad rather than going to the numbers directly above the letters. So, I purchased the Belkin. It worked only sporadically. Most of the time, the numbers appeared on screen only after the words were typed (Imagine typing in an address, and the street numbers appeared BEHIND the street name, and not in front of the street name.) Sometimes, the numbers didn't show up at all. I called Belkin on the second day of use. The tech wasn't able to assist, and took my info so that she could escalate the call. Belkin called me MORE THAN TWO WEEKS after my initial call to them. Disappointing. By that time, however, I had returned the keypad to Apple.

    Just right.

    • Written by from Muskogee

    I have been looking for a numpad since I purchased my MBPR. This fits the bill perfectly. It is the only one I know of that is actually aluminum, not painted plastic. The only thing that makes it not an exact match for my apple keyboard is a bulge on the bottom (that you never see unless you flip it over) Just like the Apple wireless keyboard it goes to sleep and if you don't wake it it misses the first keystroke. This is normative to me and it frustrates me that people complain about it. If it didn't sleep it'd be dead in a week! All in all it is the best accessory to my macbook to date.

    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.

    Works ... mostly works...

    • Written by from Ottawa

    I have the wired keyboard but wanted to free up a USB connection but the wireless keyboard from Apple is missing the keypad portion that I need as a software engineer. I thought the Belkin YourType Bluetooth Wireless Keypad was the solution. It works...well, it mostly works. I do a lot of remote work using mostly Microsoft's Remote Desktop (2013 edition). The issue, and it is a major one, is that the CTRL-ALT-DEL combination does not work. I wonder if it is because the CTRL and ALT keys are on the Apple Wireless Keyboard and the DEL key is on the Belkin YourType Keypad. I do not know who to blame, Apple or Belkin (and Microsoft for this stupid key combination) but I absolutely need this key combination when working on a remote Windows environment.

    Great match for Apple wireless keyboard

    • Written by from San Luis Obispo

    The Belkin Your Type is a great addition to the Apple's keyboard. The Bluetooth connects quickly, and the key input is quick when working with documents such as spreadsheets. If I were to find any faults with it, the key feel is lighter than the Apple wireless keyboard or MacBook Air keyboards, and it would be nice to have the battery level displayed under the Bluetooth menu. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase!

    disappointing

    • Written by from Cedar Rapids

    I thought the wireless keypad would be a great accessory with my wireless keyboard. In fact I ordered it twice hoping it would work. The first time it would only stayed connect to my computer for a few minutes, never long enough to use. Two calls to the help number included in the package proved fruitless. I spent 45 minutes on the phone with them, after 2 hours of trying myself -- no good. They even have the supervisor on the line. It wouldn't stay connected, so I returned it. A few weeks later I ordered another one. ( I dreamed of a wireless numeral keypad.) The second one never connected at all. So I returned it also. Neither one worked. Very disappointing.

    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.
