    The keys aren't really backlit.

    • Written by from Sturgis

    Maybe I'm just not easily impressed - but this keyboard seems like a completely average piece of equipment to me. I give it a downgrade for deceptive advertising though. I bought it thinking the actual characters on the keys were backlit - little glowing letters and symbols. They do not. What is "backlit" is just the base of the keyboard - which actually makes the characters on the keys harder to see if you should ever like to glance down at them. Otherwise, what it is is a bunch of poorly marked black keys suspended in a silly light-up base. And even the light-up base is pretty underwhelming.
    It functions otherwise as any plain old keyboard. *yawn* I returned mine. If the characters had REALLY been backlit - THAT would have been cool and improved functionality. As it is, it's an overpriced bauble for those who just are awestruck by most anything.

    Even better than expected!

    • Written by from King

    My extended Apple keyboard was quite aged and the white keys were turning yellow. I wondered why Apple didn't offer a great keyboard with black keys so I searched the net for an alternative to purchase. I found this Moshi Luna keyboard. I installed it last night... so easy. After plugging it into the USB of my display it prompted me for two keys to press and that was it. The set-up was complete. Wow, what a keyboard! The craftsmanship is immaculate. The adjustable glow from the backlight is awesome. I highly recommend this brand to anyone looking for an alternative and stylish keyboard. Functionally the tactile feel of the keys is PERFECT. I buy Apple products for their simplicity, functionality and superb quality. This Moshi Luna keyboard is all that and MORE!

    Great replacement

    • Written by from Westport

    The std keyboard with my iMac died and thus needed a replacement. The extra $30 was very well spent and I really like the number pad inclusion and regular delete button.

    Smooth, Light, Type

    • Written by from Fayetteville

    WOW! Super nice. Totally illuminated. I love the glass extension that lights the edge all around the keyboard. I'm a heavy-handed typist, so I'm glad to have a keyboard that's "got some meat on it's bones!" Liked the keyboard that came with my mac, but I always felt that I'd snap it in two, and I could never get quite use to the feeling of the keys. But this Moshi is much Mo-Better. For someone who learned to type on one of the old "ding-slap-jobs" I can say that I appreciate the flow of this board. Great work Moshi, thanks!

    Great keyboard but CAPS LOCK indicator lets it down

    • Written by from WAIKIKI

    I must agree with most of the reviews here and wont repeat what has already been said. BUT as a visually impaired person my only major fault is the CAPS LOCK light indicator is not obvious, so I may type something and not realize THAT I HAVE HIT CAPS LOCK next time place it in the middle of the upper keyboard or adapt software that tells you onscreen that you have enabled caps lock :)

    thanks

    Moshi Luna Keyboard Blows the Rest Away

    • Written by from Simi Valley

    I just hooked up my Moshi Luna Keyboard and the word impressed is not enough. It is the best keyboard on the market to support you iMac. I have the standard wireless keyboard from Apple and obviously does the job. Then I decided to go with an after market keyboard, two in fact. One was the Logitech K-750 Solar and the other was the smaller Logitech Wireless Bluetooth Solar. Both were O.K. but I am never satisfied until I find what is perceived to be the best so far and that is the Moshi Luna Keyboard.
    The design is well thought out (a little large) but if you have the desk space it's not a big deal. The feel of the keyboard is awesome. The illuminated keyboard is bright and makes it easy to type in a dimly lit room. The $100.00 is a little pricey but in this case you get what tou pay for. A great buy. I assume this will be my last keyboard for a long time. Buy one you will feel the same as I do.

    Awesome Keyboard

    • Written by from Castle Rock

    If you want a backlit keyboard, the Luna is the best one for a Mac. It feels natural, in fact better than Apples's own keyboard. The lighting is great. It is a USB keyboard because of the backlighting, the only drawback I see. Much better than Apple's own keyboards, especially if you want to have the keys backlit and see them while you are typing at night. I got used to backlit keyboards with my Macbook Pro and must have a backlit keyboard. Packaging is as good as Apple's and instructions are clear. Highly recommended.

    Nice but issues

    • Written by from Fort Smith

    Just fired up my nice new Moshi keyboard.
    I tried it on my Windows 7 PC but it would not work - would not even boot up.
    It came with no info or instructions so I figured it was up to me.
    I tried it on my MacBook Pro.
    Plugged it in and nothing - messed with it for a while and checked The Google - still nothing.
    At my wits end I pressed the Luna key and behold, it gave commands. After a few steps it was finally recognized and working.
    But not the mousepad - I had to connect an external mouse for that - which I usually do anyway so no big deal. Just odd.
    I like my old Mac keyboard a bit better - slightly more refined key action. But this Luna is still nice.
    It is frustrating that keystrokes for cut and paste do not work though - have to use the right mouse button for that. Or is there a fix for that too?
    I am a writer and I love the backlit keys on my MacBook. It allows me to work at night and on the plane on long trips. I just ordered a MacBook Air because of that - I would have tried the new Microsoft Surface but they do not offer backlit keys. Mac is always a step higher in design quality it seems.
    But why don't they make an Apple backlit ext. keyboard? Bizzare.

    NOT SO GREAT !

    • Written by from Omaha

    Just kidding it is almost PERFECT!

    The only qualms are: that it is not wireless & that Moshi does not offer the keyboard in a black & silver modern color scheme that many of Apple desktop/laptop & displays resemble today.

    quality weight and construction, easy on the palms and perfect smooth keystrokes.

    Close, but not quite

    • Written by from Vancouver

    I have waited years for an illuminated keyboard with Mac keys, and the Luna does not disappoint. I like the keyboard very much, and I can now work with dim lighting ion my office as I prefer.

    It's not perfect, however. There is one design "feature" that is causing me problems. That is the illuminated "luna" in the bottom left corner of the space bar. The problem is that when I want to press the Command key I am used to looking for the first symbol to the left of what is normally a blank space bar. I am using my peripheral vision, so I am not seeing details, I am just seeing the symbols on the keyboard. Because the space bar has "luna" on it, I see that as the first symbol and end up pressing the space bar instead of the Command key. Or I end up pressing Command instead of Option when I'm looking for the second symbol to the left of the space bar. I'm going to have to figure out how to cover over the illuminated "luna" without making the keyboard look ugly in daylight.

    There are a few other problems. The keys in the bottom row don't line up the same as they do on the Apple keyboard so I sometimes hit the wrong key because I'm not used to the spacing. The Fn key is inexplicably stuck between the Option and Control keys on the right side. The volume keys worked for a while, but now don't do anything.

    The clear plastic around the edges of the keyboards can be damaged, so it should be treated carefully. My first keyboard arrived with a chunk of the clear plastic broken off and rattling around in the box. Apple replaced the keyboard right away, but it made me a bit concerned about the ability of the keyboard to withstand any accidental bumps.

    Awesome...

    • Written by from Vancouver

    Absolutely fantastic. The keyboard feel is identical to the stock Apple keyboard. Lowest light level is perfect for typing in the dark. The highest brightest is too bright for me.
    I wish it had a usb port or two.
    Fit and finish is superb and the packaging is on the same level as Apple packaging.

    Hands down the best rubber-dome backlit keyboard for Mac.

    • Written by from Walnut

    I wish this was a mechanical keyboard with Cherry Red MX switches, but maybe I am asking for too much. As rubber-dome keyboards for Mac go, this is one of the best keyboards out there. One, the look and feel of the keyboard is slick and very Apple-esque. Two, the backlights are fantastically laid out and just look downright sexy in the dark. The white light bleeds to the edges of the clear plastic and looks like something out of Tron. Three, it is a full sized keyboard, meaning all buttons are given proper size. One thing I hate, is how small the arrow keys are on official Apple keyboards. This Moshi Luna offers a full size numeric pad as well.

    Cons? Not every keyboard is perfect. Due to how shiny and reflective the black and clear plastic surface is, this keyboard is prone to finger prints and hand smudges. If you care how your keyboard looks, you might be finding your self wiping this keyboard down more often than not. As a plus, in the box, they provide a nice micro-fiber towel that covers the keys on your keyboard while you are away.

    There are a total of 5 light settings for the backlights on the keyboard. [f5] lowers the brightness setting while [f6] increases the brightness.
    1 - OFF
    2 - 25%
    3 - 50%
    4 - 75%
    5 - 100%
    Pressing [f6] over 5 times does not forcibly cycle through the brightnesses. Instead it just stays at 100% until [f5] is pressed, and vice versa.

    The keyboard requires a quick set-up when plugged into my Mac. The Mac kept detecting the keyboard with a Japanese layout, but just forcibly selecting US Keyboard was easy enough. I've been using it for a few days now and haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary.

    I have the philosophy that user interface peripherals need to be comfortable and functional. Don't worry about the cost; buy the best you can possibly afford and make sure your typing experience is a good one.

    This review was typed with the Moshi Luna Backlit Keyboard and I am loving every keystroke.

    If you want to get it...get it!

    • Written by from Whitby

    i just purchased this keyboard and so far so good. The keys are a little lighter than typing on a macbook pro keyboard so it takes getting use too, nonetheless, having a backlit keyboard is great! You can't lose with that! It makes typing in low lighting much easier. The design is very sleek and contemporary and very light weight. Also, having the keyboard on a slant is easy on the wrists.

    And for those that are having trouble with using the MAC quick keys for LION OS: the mission control key works fine on its own; but to use the dashboard icon you have to hit function before pressing the key. I

    All in all I think it was worth getting this keyboard because it is compatible with both windows and mac for those boot campers out there. No weird performance issues to report.

    My quest for the perfect backlit keyboard is over.

    • Written by from Henrico

    I have tried a half dozen, at least. Moshi replaced my Razer Black Widow. Seriously. Back-lighting control is exquisite, and the keyboard is visually a thing to behold. Keys are solidly set and the board itself is quite heavy and substantial. There are 4 levels of back-light strength. #4 is very bright but not overwhelming, although I normally find #2 perfect. There is a clear plastic "flange" that borders the left, right, and bottom of the keyboard, that casts gentle back-light in a useful working pattern along the perimeter. Elegant and clean. I love this keyboard. I am using this keyboard on my Mac Pro, but I plan to buy another one for my PC as well.

    It's that good.

    Great Keyboard

    • Written by from Prince George

    Love this keyboard. Great build & quality. Had an issue with the f1 & f2 keys not working, contacted Moshi tech & got a very quick reply, that solved the problem. Make sure that your original Mac keyboard is switched off or else you may get a conflict between the two keyboards & some keys may not work on the Luna. That was the problem I had. Great product & great tech support!!

    Nice Keyboard But!

    • Written by from Orlando

    Well, I went ahead and bought the Moshi Luna Keyboard, and here are some of my observations. I noticed that the Moshi Luna Illuminated keyboard can't perform a Pram reset by holding the p,r,option, command keys on restart in lion. Other than that one issue the keyboard is simply a joy to use! The key's have a better more solid tactical feedback than the standard Apple keyboard. A much better height angle at 9 degrees feels very comfortable, and totally brilliant white backlighting. The construction is really first rate. even though it is plastic, it is a very high grade thick plastic. The keyboard is actually quite a bit heavier than the Apple keyboard. I'm very pleased so far. Guess I'll have use my Apple keyboard to perform a Pram reset. No biggie really. The benefits far out weigh that. If you can live with the Pram thing, I would recommend this keyboard to anyone looking for a solid illuminated keyboard. Oh, and every function key works perfectly!

    Looks great, keys feel a bit flimsy, dashboard softkey does not work

    • Written by from Amesbury

    I'd been looking for a solid lighted actual-Mac keyboard for ages now, and at around a hundred bucks I figured the Luna was worth taking a gamble on. As others have said, it looks fantastic. The lighting is perfect adn the design is great.

    Two things - one is that on Mountain Lion the dashboard softkey does not work at all, and there appears to be no real troubleshooting that I can do for it.

    Secondly - the keys feel a tad on the cheap side. I was hoping that they'd be macbook-quality in terms of build and feel, but they feel much thinner. It's not a big problem for me but if you are rough on your keyboards I think this might break pretty easy on you.

    For the price it's worth it, just be aware of the shortcomings.

    Awesome Keyboard!

    • Written by from Delray Beach

    This keyboard is awesome. Lights up just like my MBPR. It also works great through my thunderbolt display I know another reviewer said they had problems with this but I can confirm that it works great with the thunderbolt display and the new macbook pro with retina display. All the keys work in windows and osx for those of you that bootcamp like me. Illumination/Backlights work great. All around feel is solid and excellent for long typing periods. Definitely recommend the keyboard.

    Outstanding Keyboard

    • Written by from Pickerington

    I purchased this keyboard for the following reasons (in order of importance):
    -Backlit keyboard
    -Mac/Win Compatible
    -Reviews

    While I'm pleased with the backlighting and the fact that I can use it with my A/B switch (Mac/Win), it's the "feel" of the keyboard that is on the top of my list.
    Regarding the feel, Moshi managed to strike the perfect balance between a short travel distance and the tactile response that a key has been struck.

    The only thing that I would change is the size, it's large. Personally, I'd love to see a version of this keyboard sans the numeric keys.

    Overall, one of the best keyboards I've ever used. Kudos, Moshi.
