Good morning,
i would trust EK: WARNING: Not Apple OSX compatible. - https://elitekeyboards.com/products.php?sub=topre_keyboards,rf_numberpad&pid=rf_wc0100
Looking at Google, https://www.google.de/search?q=Realforce+23U+Tenkeypad&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&gws_rd=cr&ei=FqcsVvqfMaKHygONuIewDQ#q=Mac+OS+X+Realforce+23U+TenkeyPad, isn't very helpfull either.
@ext3rN I would say yes, because the 87 has an Integrated tenkey numberpad (outputs true 'Num' keycodes). It wouldn't make any sense at all for me if the this Numpad wouldn't be able to do that.

thanks @Makami it is clear it is not MacOS compatible. It is a pity as it would have been a nice addition to my collection. THX.

I've been reading user reviews of this numpad on Japanese sites, and people there indicate that it does work with Mac. Just need to have the right DIP switches enabled.

I'm a Mac user, and I'll be joining this drop. I can let you know what I find, but I'm afraid the drop will end first.

@YanboWu and @Kunal have Macs. I'll get one of them to test it out and see if it works.

Perfect solution for the poor of us that can't understand Japanese :)

Hey just tested out on my Mac and it worked just fine.
2015 Macbook Air with OS X El Capitan
EDIT: The '00' doesn't seem to work and the "=" is outputting 16 when pressed.

Do all keys work, including the '00' and '=' ? People report online that some keys make it freeze up on OSX.

Hey, so the '00' doesn't seem to work and the "=" is outputting 16 when pressed.
I'll edit my previous comment to reflect this

Thanks for testing that. Assuming the enter key works fine, it seems like it will be okay for most data-entry uses on OSX. Users on GeekHack had similar problems with Filco numpads and were able to fix it with Karabiner or by passing it though a USB->PS/2 converter then a PS/2->USB converter https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=64977.0

Yep, the enter key worked just fine. That's why I didn't even notice something was off. Was doing some calculator stuff all morning with it without any problems. Didn't even think to test the "00" and "=" buttons.

Ty for another flashback to the eighties :)
Every breath you take Every move you make Every bond you break Every step you take I'll be watching you.
Every single day Every word you say Every game you play Every night you stay I'll be watching you.
Every move you make Every vow you break Every smile you fake Every claim you stake I'll be watching you.
Edit: Strange, no MD 2.0 is eating "new lines/hitting enter". The text is fine in preview, after submitting it's mixed up.

Looks good on my side. Is it turning it into a brick of text for you?
