When my desktop was arranged differently, with my keyboard in a pull-out drawer and mouse on top of the desk, it was a pain moving between mouse and kb to enter bet amounts. I bought the above Logitech wireless numpad for about $18 on eBay, and left it on the desktop next to the mouse. HUGE improvement. These days my kb is on top next to the mouse, so I just use the regular kb keypad and save the wireless numpad for playing on the laptop.
If you want to take it even further and really customize it into a "poker controller" you could use AHK or other software to map the /*-+() keys to specific poker actions. Plus there are three additional custom buttons along the top that the included Logitech driver will let you map to other keys/actions.
If you play on a laptop, or with your mouse and kb widely separated like mine was, the separate numpad should be all you need. Plus it works as a numpad for other applications, so it's a lot more practical than such a dedicated poker controller.
