New Keyboard or Number Pad

I just bought a new iMac that came with one of those 3/4 keyboards. Usually I just sell them on ebay and keep using the same old Mac keyboard I've used since '06.. Well, I liked the idea of going cordless and my old one is pretty dirty and some of the buttons aren't working so I started using the new one. I really like it but it's slowing down my editing by not having the number pad. I constantly use the + key and add frames to move forward or back. Nudge +1 or +5 isn't quite as efficient so I'm looking at a new keyboard. Apparently apple never made a full size cordless one... Not surprised really... What is everybody else using? I see that there is the number pad that I can buy separately. $50 seems a bit steep but I'm considering it. Has anybody tried it out? I'm looking at the "NewerTech 28-Key Bluetooth Wireless Aluminum Keypad".
I mostly want to know if it's compatible with Adobe and if it's awkward using a number pad that's not attached to the actual keyboard.
