Customer Reviews:
  • Not fantastic - better than OK
    Targus Wireless Stow-N-Go Keypad AKP01US
    This is a better than OK product, not great or fantastic. For some reason the left/right; up/down arrows do not work, even when I depress teh NUM LOCK key. When I depress numbers I then have to depress the 'Enter' key; cannot use the down arrow key - like I would in an Excel spreadsheet. I have to admit I am not used to using a keypad such as this. ...more info
  • Terrible purchase
    I highly recommend against buying this item. The keypad skips numbers even with a fresh battery. It has brought me nothing but aggravation every time I attempt to use it!...more info
  • Functional but not Poor Design
    It works as advertised. The idea of wireless is attractive. One less cable to get tangled. But the transmitter size is very large and blocks access to neighboring slots in USB hub. Sometimes response to key presses are a little slow. The transmitter is a bit tight to pull out of the storage space in the back. So I had to use extra force to get it out and I dropped it on the floor. Next thing I know, the transmitter stopped working which means the keypad stopped working....more info
  • Be wary of receiver dimensions
    I just got this product of the box and have noticed it comes with a distinct disadvantage. The USB receiver is both wide and fat, to such an extent a second USB devise cannot be plugged in next to it. I've tested it on both side-by-side and top-bottom USB ports. This is rather frustrating, particularly when my ports are in short supply.

    This product does come with a USB extender, which is sized to more standard dimensions and will fit more comfortably with other devises in the ports. Still, I'm disappointed that I need to use and handle wires in order to have this wireless devise perform optimally....more info
  • I love this keypad!
    I have not had any of the problems described by other reviewers. I highly recommend this product!

    I will agree that the receiver that plugs into the USB port is a little on the fat side, and makes it a little difficult to use my second USB port, although not impossible.

    I'm not sure why people were sitting 3 feet away from their computer using their keypad - I usually have it on my desk next to my laptop, or I sit back in my chair with the keypad in my hand.

    The only time I had problems with it picking up what I was typing was when the battery was low. I changed the battery and the problem was solved!...more info
  • Great Product
    We are very happy with the wireless stow n go keypad. Keypad is very comparable to an actual computer keyboard keypad. ...more info
  • Poor Operation
    The keypad is unreliable. It often registers only about 2/3 of the keys pressed, and at best still misses a key here and there. The included USB cable must be used to ensure proper performance, which of course defeats the purpose of buying a wireless device. The range varies each time I tried to use it, sometimes it would work a few feet away (the 3.3 ft. range claimed by Targus), but often it had to be within 12 inches of the receiver to work. I actually purchased 2 of these Stow-N-Go keypads and had the exact same problems with both. I give it two stars, not one, because under the perfect conditions it worked all right and for that brief time it was nice to have a wireless device. I'm returning these for a refund....more info
  • Works great!
    I have just bought this keypad. It works great and I have had no problems with the operation. After reading the other reviews I wonder if I have the same numeric keypad. I have the wireless Stow-N-Go keypad from Targus.
    I have not encountered any of the problems that are discussed in the older reviews. I would highly recommend the product.

  • Good idea, poor execution for my needs
    The concept is good, I love wireless devices as I hate pulling out the tangle of cords in the laptop case. So I was surprised to see the USB extension cable included. My laptop has over&under USB ports, meaning one on top of the other. This USB receiver is too fat to be able to also use my wireless mouse, and it has no additional ports on the body of the keypad to assist here. I don't really want to have to use another cable for a wireless device, and I don't want to have to purchase a USB hub with wires. To boot, the backspace key was sticking. I will return this item....more info
  • Not bad
    This product works very well and is easy to use. The only draw back I have noticed is that my coworker has the same keypad and we cannot both use them at the same time. If we both have the receivers plugged in, whatever I type shows up on both screens. ...more info
  • Mediocre
    I would actually recommend against this item. The range on the keypad either sucks or the item itself is faulty. I can have the keypad in my lap and my laptop less than a foot away and the keypad will skip numbers when I'm trying to calculate or type in a string of numbers. It also seems to independantly turn off the number lock key. Save your money....more info
