Rated 2 out of 5 by akpiantin from Ok, until it got a mind of it's own!My initial response to this product was that the buttons were a bit too far apart to get a comfortable speed going, otherwise I liked the product. That is, until it suddenly took over my computer. Without my touching the keypad it would enter random digits into any field on the screen, plus it keeps making a "boing" sound, again, when I'm not even touching anything. It also keeps moving the cursor! All of these have rendered it useless. I haven't even used it that much!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Andrew from No alt codes, not a true numeric keypadI needed a numeric keypad for my computer so I could type ALT codes (copyright and other special characters typed by holding down the ALT key and typing a code), but sadly this keypad does not send ALT codes. It doesn't have arrow or page up/down alternate keys, or anything like that. it's a little odd but works decently for what it is.I can use my calculator more easily now, but since this isn't a normal number pad like that on a standard keyboard, it's not going to do what I bought it for. It would be great if targus had a software to impliment ALT codes but since this thing is only good for entering basic numbers into calculator or online, I'm bummed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Professional_and_Student from Works Great on Apple MacBook Pro!Works like a charm on my MacBook Pro, right out of the box! Using with Microsoft Excel in Microsoft Office for Macintosh 2011 fantastically. Bought as inexpensive, portable alternative to Bluetooth numeric keypad. Comfortable, and key shape-and-size gels with the MacBook Pro perfectly. Ignore the Apple "Identify Keyboard" System Preference dialog box that will open (at least for me, on OS X Lion 10.7.3) and just use it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kaptainess from Its easy to use. No set up on the computer, plug and play. Saves a lot of strain on the wrists because my computer didn't come with a #keypad.
