    Terrible. Failed after 2 years use.

    • Written by from Midland

    Worked great for the first year and half and started having key problems (I never eat or drink anything at my desk. NOTHING was spilled on it)

    The 8 key is stuck, cleaned underneath and it was already spotless, still the same problems. Now the o & 1 key doesn't work. Now am forced to use a hideous logitech keyboard as I can't afford 50$ for a new one.

    OK but not great

    • Written by from laval

    My wireless keyboard came by default with my new iMac 27in system. I like the quality and fell of the keyboard. Its design is also beautiful. However its main drawback is that people like me, software developers, the keyboard is much too small, is missing page up/down buttons, and the location of the CONTROL key is just painful to use. CONTROL i s more frequently used than FN so I would have place it in the current location of FN, that way one can use the left hand pinky to easily reach CTRL-A CTRL-something combinations without doing a Houdini with the fingers.

    Waterproof?

    • Written by from Astoria

    I just spilled water in the keyboard at work and it's working like nothing happened! It was a lot of water. I'm quite impressed! :) YAY! Good stuff, I have this keyboard @ home and I'm happy as always. More now!

    it just stops working

    • Written by from LAKE VIEW TERRACE

    this is like the third one i've had to buy and now it's broken too.... all of a sudden the keys just stop working. one day it's fine next day - half the keys stop responding. i didn't wet it or drop it - it's just dead. i guess i'll go to a LOGITECH this time, even though i love the look and feel of this keyboard. at least it should last more than 3 months.

    Good keyboard, however...

    • Written by from DENVER

    I do like this keyboard with the one exception of its non-ergonomic style. I have used the ergonomic keyboards on PC's before changing over to Mac and they are much friendlier on the hands and wrists.

    Why oh why not wireless?

    • Written by from Morristown

    Just purchased a new iMac and the lovely wireless keyboard that came with it does not have the usual attached keypad. Ok, I get it, maybe most folks don't use it. But to not even OFFER AN OPTION of this larger keyboard in wireless form? Seriously?

    The wired keyboard is great, except that it is WIRED. Why am I forced to go backwards, technology wise, due to Apple's apparent belief that the keypad isn't necessary? IT IS NECESSARY. Please provide a wireless version of this keyboard. PLEASE???? (It would be 5 stars except...it's WIRED)

    Great Keyboard, but Lacking Durability

    • Written by from Bloomington

    I really like this keyboard and enjoy using it more than other keyboards I've tried, but I got one drop of a drink under the space bar, and cleaning it with a tiny amount of rubbing alcohol damaged it to the point it is non-operational. I plan to buy another one, but it could be more durable to withstand such a tiny amount of moisture.

    Wireless keyboard

    • Written by from Davis

    I love the design of the new apple wireless keyboard with 1 huge exception. No 10 built-in 10 key..

    I do a LOT of data entry and a 10-key is essential: trying to use the numerical entry is difficult and frustrating.

    The separate 10 key that is available is an extra piece of equipment to deal with

    I look forward to a wireless keyboard that has the built-in 10 key.

    Great keyboard

    The only way to make it better would be to make it wireless. Love the sleek feel. Matches my new iMac nicely.

    Why is the 10 key pad not on every keyboard

    • Written by from Redmond

    I originally got the wireless Bluetooth keyboard for the iMac when I purchased it. Its a good keyboard, but the wired 10 key with USB ports has made work more efficient. I no longer have to go to the back of the iMac to plug in a thumb drive, I don't have batteries to worry about or connectivity. Also adding the few other buttons like home, page up, page down etc just makes life easier. The Keys are spread out just enough to make typing easy. It looks great and the function is 100x better then the smaller wireless. This keyboard should be standard on the iMacs.

    Just short of Excellent...

    • Written by from Kelowna

    I cannot understand for the life of me why Apple did not produce a full size keyboard in wireless. I would gladly sacrifice the two USB ports for wireless! Other than that (thanks for the vent) it is an excellent keyboard. Stylish, functional, and easy to keep clean! Excellent value, and compliments my iMac beautifully.

    Good while it lasted

    • Written by from Toronto

    I purchased the Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad back in 2007 to use with my Macbook when hooked up to an external monitor. The keyboard worked great for the past 3 years until it suddenly died. One day it was working fine, the next day it was not detected. I would expect a basic USB keyboard like this to work for more than a few years, especially considering the price paid.

    Best keyboard I've ever owned

    • Written by from Turku

    I've tried Microsoft's Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000, which, in addition to having a ridiculously long and pointless technically numeristic name, also broke very easily; I tend to spill coffee on my keyboards quite often, and they tend to break. But this keyboard didn't, it functioned perfecly after a small spill, and it's also beautifully ergonomic to use, even if it's not a split keyboard. I believe this is the fastest typing and best feeling keyboard I've ever used. And resilient as well!

    Best. Keyboard. Ever.

    • Written by from Belleview

    I have been using this keyboard since 2007. I love it. Nothing else even comes close. I type faster and with no struggling at all. It is hard for me to find a keyboard that I don't have to fight with... I have very, very large hands, and this particular keyboard allows me to just focus on creating the content that I want, not on how/where I place my hands. If something happens to this keyboard, I'll go buy another one just like it.

    Random Problems with Tunes and key combinations

    • Written by from Lanham

    Over the past six months I have purchased several of these keyboards for my office and personal use, I have a problem with one which turns on my iTunes on and starts playing when the keyboard is connected to my MacBook Pro. The key combination of shift and W doesn't work. I contacted Apple they had no answers, I questioned warranty and was told there is no warranty since it wasn't purchased with a computer, I questioned more and got several stories, know one at Apple could tell me what the warranty is.
    My company has been loyal Apple users since the first Mac and this is the most run around I have ever had. I do know that other keyboard manufacturers have clear warranty statements and don't require a computer purchase get get warranty.
    other than these problems the keyboard would be a solid five star rating.

    Shocking!

    • Written by from Denver

    I have no problem with the key feel or ergonomics of this keyboard. My problem is that everytime I use it I get a static discharge, and not a small one. I don't know if this caused any problems with my computer (hope not), but it got irritating enough that I had to stop using it and I got an old plastic apple keyboard. I would love to get a wireless keyboard, but I have to have the numeric keyboard on the right, and Apple does not make one like that.
