    Something better must be out there ...

    • Written by Sheryl B from AUSTIN

    I do accounting part-time with my personal computer so it is very important that I have the numeric keypad. I use this only because there is nothing better available. It is battery operated rather than rechargeable. It is not possible to turn it off and save the batteries (2 AA) so I have resorted to opening the battery compartment and removing the batteries when I am finished. This is necessary because in my bag, if it gets bumped, it will be picked up by my notebook and I will get something like "77777777777777777777" in the middle of my work.

    Regarding the wireless connection - it sometimes doesn't connect. Sometimes it loses it's connection in the middle of working. The only way to remedy this is to restart my computer and sometimes take the batteries out. Pain in the a**.

    I was fooled by the feel of quality and didn't check reviews. Don't do the same. A wired pad would be a big improvement.

    Apparently is does work with El Capitan. Try exchanging it for a new one.

    My friend owns one of these and it stopped working. After reading the reviews when everything else failed I determined it was hopeless and told her to try an alternative. She returned it to Microcenter and they said it does work after connecting one in store. She has a new one and it works just fine. Maybe there’s a batch that has problems and she had one. Who knows. I suggest exchanging one if it isn’t working for you as Apple probably wouldn’t continue to sell these if they didn’t work.

    Belkin YourType was a Waste of $49.00

    Bought this thing a year ago and it was never able to pair with my, always up to date, MBP. Every couple of months I try to rain it and it will not work. Tossed it into the trash this morning.
