Does what it says, is what it is.
All in all this is a solid product, I’ve noticed that it disconnects after periods of inactivity but reconnects on its own after pressing any of its buttons. I saw in other reviews a plastic piece that connects it to the Mac wireless keyboard, mine didn’t come with that, Which is too bad.

Great design overall
Nice design. Not sure if it’s my laptop or the keyboard on how it’s configured but the backspace keys only work when you select a text. Wish it would automatically delete without selecting with the mouse.

Requires Brand New Strong batteries to work
I have the same problem described by others with the keyboard being flaky. It is great when it works. But often doesn't. After playing around with it for quite a bit I found the following: 1. It is very sensitive to interference from competing blue tooth devices; 2. It pairs more easily and works better with an I pad thatn it does with a mac pro or a mac book pro and most importantly 3. It requires new batteries with a total of more than 3 volts total to work properly. Once the individual batteries drop down to the 1.5 volt range the device starts exhibiting its flakey connections and its inability to stay connected through the blue tooth. The better new alkaline batteries carry a charge in excess of their 1.5 volt rating for a time. Many new batteries, particularly rechargeable batteries, do not carry more than 1.5 volts even when fully charged. This Belkin Keypad will not work reliably with them and it stops working reliable early into the normal life of good batteries.
I say I would recommend it only to some one who is willing to get new batteries very frequently and who has a use for the batteries that are taken out of the keypad. (most clocks for example can run a long time on batteries with 1.5 v or less.)

Better life with it!
I am a somewhat newer user of Finale Music software. This keypad has made data entry a breeze! The pad linked perfectly with my MacBook pro and integrated with the Finale software effortlessly. I wish all my accessories worked this well!

I wish it worked.
When I got this, I thought it was awesome. It looks almost exactly like my main keyboard and it makes things so much easier. I put it away for a while and now it doesn’t work. I tried replacing the batteries several times.
When you push the power button, the green light goes on and then blinks off. My main keyboard and mouse pad have no such issue. It would be great if it actually worked.
It seems to be a common issue.

Connection drops all the time
This product is a waste of your money. It losses the connection to the computer continuously. Very frustrating. Pushing the side button to light up the pad to try and connect to the computer is futile. Save your money, buy elsewhere.

Bought this a week ago because it was the only model the store had and I was desperate and didn't have the time to shop around. I didn't have any problems getting it to connect to my macbook pro and for the main part it works for what I need it to do. The problem is that not all the buttons work...for example, the delete button does NOTHING. The "clear" button only works if you click on a cell that you're not working on and empty it....
My only other complaint would be that the keys are not programmable...for example, I would LOVE to be able to get rid of a key who's function I will never use and make it a "Tab" key instead so i don't have to keep switching back and forth between this keypad and my actual keyboard while i'm entering massive amounts of data into a program.

Looses connection with PC too often. Even though Windows tells the keyboard is paired, you can not type. The problem appears and disappears without any understandable reason.
