    DO NOT BUY THIS

    • Written by from Glen Allen

    It just won't work right. I've never gotten it working the way it's supposed to, and now it won't connect. Find a USB 10-Key numeric key pad instead.

    BEWARE of important defect this item has!

    • Written by from los angeles

    So, I learned this the hard way. Make sure when you look at this little numeric keypad you notice that comma or apostrophe is not added. Big FAIL. I think the purpose of the keypad was to shortcut and quicken the numeric process yet this keypad won't help if you are a designer, architect or any other project involving measurements...don't measurements and numbers go hand by hand?
    So beware builders and designers...you will not be able to relay feet, inches or dimensions of any programs such as AutoCad, Sketchup, Revit etc....without ultimately having to go back to your keyboards numeric upper row, o whats the point.

    For anyone else aside from accountants its like buying sneakers without laces. Disppointed.

    Also disappointed :(

    • Written by from Scottsdale

    This keypad worked for several months and then just quit working. When that happened I searched the troubleshooting section of the user manual with no luck, so went online to see if there was something I could do. I was extremely disappointed to find out that many, many others had the same problem with no solution. I do NOT recommend this product and am surprised that Apple even sells it.

    Worked great

    • Written by from Elkton

    This number pad worked great until it stopped connecting. I removed it and tried to pair it again but it doesn't recognize the number pad. When I was able to use it, it made my life much easier. If it still worked, I would give it 5/5.

    Extremely Frustrating Because It Would Not Stay Connected

    • Written by from Fort Worth

    I bought this Belkin Bluetooth Wireless numerical keypad for my iMAC. It is completely disappointing because it only stays connected to the Mac for just a few seconds. I will try it with the calculator and everything seemed fine. But a few seconds later, the connection would be lost. This is the second Belkin keypad I got from Apple after returning another one with the same connection problem.

    What's more frustrating is it sometimes seems to "remembers" the numbers that it doesn't transmit. This is because when I get fed up with it and switch over to the Apple Bluetooth keyboard using the numbers along the top, it then adds in the numbers that previously would not be transmitted so now you have additional numbers in your equation!

    Very disappointing in this product.

    Lags behind several steps

    • Written by from LAS CRUCES

    Absolutely unusable! One star is too much! You are trying to enter a series of numbers and it either skips entirely or gets parts of one number intermingled with others! I am surprised that Apple would have such an item in their listing.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    RUBBISH not even worth one star

    • Written by from Norwich

    I have had the Belkin wireless numeric keypad for a few months now, and have finally given up on it and bought a wired keyboard with the numeric pad built in. Seems I have had pretty much the same problem as everybody else, sometimes it works and another time you press the numbers and it takes ages for them to appear on the screen. Apple did try to assist me over the phone but I am still having the same problems. If I re-start my Mac it seems to be ok for a little while but then it will suddenly stop again. A really frustrating keypad, which in my opinion Apple should not sell.

    Was good for a couple of months but now NO GOOD!

    • Written by from Braddon

    I bought mine around 10 months ago, it was pretty good for awhile but now just won't connect at all.

    Also FYI for Adobe InDesign users, the keyboard is not compatible with the shortcuts in InDesign that require a numerical keypad, that is a bummer.

    Why do I have to give it even one star?

    • Written by from Wildwood

    I've had the same frustrating experience as many others I see making comments about this key pad. It works OK sometimes, but then quits for no apparent reason. It disconnects itself in the middle of a job. Sometimes there is a delay before the numbers appear which is not acceptable since alpha characters are taken in real time. The pad was installed at the Apple store by an Apple employee when I purchased the computer. I returned the pad when it didn't operate properly and was given a new one. It didn't work either. I have now junked the wireless Bluetooth keyboard (although the keyboard was not the problem) and the numeric key pad, and bought the full numeric keyboard using the USB port. Problem solved.
    How can Apple risk its reputation by selling something of such obvious poor design and quality?
