This product offers itself as a keypad, a calculator, and as a calculator that can transfer a result to a spreadsheet. As a keypad it may drop a digit on the first transfer - you have to make sure that the keypad has connected - after which it does what is required. But the calculator transfer function is buggy. It frequently drops either the first or last digit or both and frequently generates a repeating digit which won't stop until you turn off the keypad and start over.

I will still use it as a keypad and be happy that I don't have to use the top row or wonky function pad on my laptop. I seldom need an independent calculator. The failure of the calculator transfer feature is disappointing - hence the unenthusiastic endorsement of the rating.

HASH(0xa518f09c) out of 5 stars Solid Bluetooth keypad calculator Jan. 6 2012
By Sean Jay SD - Published on
Verified Purchase
I use a MacBook Air with a Magic Mouse, and needed a Bluetooth keypad. I read the negative reviews of others and ordered this product with some hesitation.
I ran into the same pairing issues as other reviewers did. I tried following the manual's instructions, which are quite confusing as others have noted, with no success.

Then I called customer service (connected with Philippines, I believe). A rep picked up quickly, and 5 min later the unit worked just fine. The problem turned out to be the batteries which were supplied with the unit -- a minor inconvenience. The rep explained that the batteries were nearly out of charge, likely because of being in a warehouse for an extended period of time. When the unit toggles between its two modes (more on the modes later in this review) without user input, it indicates that the battery needs to be changed. This point is not explained in the user manual. There is a Battery Indicator which plays a minor part during the pairing process (but apparently is not an indication of remaining battery life).

When I replaced with a new set of batteries, the unit paired easily and remained paired. The rep mentioned that fresh batteries should last 4-5 months under normal use -- about the same life as Apple's Magic Trackpad and Magic Mouse. However, this unit uses two AAA batteries, not the AA batteries used in Apple's units. Another design detail which tells you that this is not an Apple product is that the batteries are inserted side-by-side with opposite polarities (i.e., like most electric/electronic devices), not the end-to-end same polarity insertion used in Apple's products. The side-by-side arrangement also makes the battery compartment thicker than Apple's battery compartments, even though this KeyPad uses smaller AAA batteries. It would have also been more convenient to use AA batteries, so that rechargeable batteries could be shared between the Magic Trackpad and/or Magic Mouse and this Keypad.

There are two modes to the unit -- Keypad and Calculator. The Mode button in the top right toggles between the two modes, and the mode you are in currently is identified on the unit's display.
In Keypad mode, you use the unit with your computer. There is initially a jarring effect in Keypad mode which passes quickly (also not explained in the manual) -- the numbers you type are not reflected on the unit's display, but are reflected only on your computer (if paired properly). This feature makes sense, as it serves as an alert to the user that your computer is receiving input from the unit.
In Calculator mode, you use the unit like a calculator (simple arithmetic calculator). Your numeric key presses are displayed on the unit's display, and your computer is disconnected from the unit. I was able to toggle between the modes and, when returning to Keypad mode, seamlessly continued to type numbers into my computer where I had left off. The Calculator mode is indeed a convenient added touch.

Pairing with iPad 2 was also easy (first disconnect from your computer).

Construction quality -- matches the MacBook Air in color, but the material is plastic, not metallic. Adequate quality, although not up to Apple quality, as others have noted.
It is a rather large unit with big numeric keys -- I like the size, but others may not. I like the fact that you can pick up the unit and use two hands to tap out your numbers, as if using a calculator.

If you decide to purchase this unit, have a fresh pair of AAA batteries handy. If you have trouble pairing when using the batteries provided with the unit, replace the batteries and then try pairing again. If you still need to contact customer service, it was a quick and pleasant experience for me.

Rating: 3.5 stars, due to construction quality, battery type (AAA instead of AA) and battery compartment design.

HASH(0xa5197504) out of 5 stars Works great & easy connect June 8 2012

This little numeric keypad works great. Easy setup via bluetooth and easy reconnect with my laptop whenever I need it. A lot easier than using the row of number keys across the top of my laptop's keyboard, and I've never been able to get the hang of the weird, slanted, alternate keypad that some laptops offer as an alternative to the number keys across the top of the keyboard. Seems to be holding up well in all the dust here in Baghdad this time of year. Every full-size keyboard that I have tried here develops sticky, glitchy, keys within a few days after exposure to Baghdad dust, but this little numeric keypad is still smooth as it was when new after two weeks in horrific dust. I'm very satisfied. The only improvement that I would like to see would be a change to AA batteries. The AAA batteries are sometimes difficult to find here in Iraq, and they don't last as long as AAs would.

HASH(0xa5469bb8) out of 5 stars FRUSTRATED AT FIRST BUT NOW PERFECTLY HAPPY Dec 14 2012
By DILLIGAS - Published on
I have owned this calculator for almost two years now. I use it extensively in my bill paying and stock trading. At first I was frustrated like other reviews, where the pairing would drop, it became hard to pair, the mode would slip back and forth. After many tries I found how to pair quickly (type the key number on the pad and hit enter....don't worry about seeing what you typed). It does shut down to sleep with non use, however a hit of the 'wake' key then the 'enter' key will wake it up (about 10-15 seconds) when you see the shadow of the key pad on your screen, then striking your first key once or twice will show the key number on your screen. The only problem i find is it is a 'separate unit'. I would like it to connect to the side of my apple wireless keyboard. and be the same height as the keep board. I am perfectly happy now with it's performance and ease of use and would recommend it to others.

HASH(0xa596c54c) out of 5 stars for casual users, interesting "send" function Dec 11 2013
By lttldgn - Published on
Verified Purchase
it may be commonplace for all Bluetooth peripherals, but the fact that numbers randomly skip when entering data is a great cause for concern. (10 key is meant for fast and accurate data entry).

for casual users, the "send" function is very interesting and may be worthwhile for people who often use a normal calculator to perform simple arithmetic and send final values to the computer. (use keypad in calculator mode to do basic computations, and send the final results to the computer with the send button)

I simply think that I cannot trust a randomly skipping BT connection to enter data. (percentage of skipping was very low, so again, this might be just fine for causal users)

the quality and build of the keypad was pretty good. It is plastic, but has heft and is solid enough to not move when placed on a desk.
