    Keys stopped working

    • Written by from Washington

    One year and 2 weeks after purchasing this keyboard with a new 21" iMac several keys just stopped working, rendering it useless. I checked online and this seems to be a fairly common problem. I've been a Dell user for over a decade and last year switched to a Mac based on rave reviews from friends. So far I've been unimpressed. Six weeks after purchasing the iMac the hard drive failed. Now the keyboard has failed. I don't know what will fail next, but this is becoming the most expensive computer I've ever owned......and not because of the quality.

    Heels for fingers, looks sexy but painful

    • Written by from Toronto

    Going to keep it short as possible,

    Like with all Apple products, they all look very sexy and attractive like women in heels however it comes at a cost, and that cost is that it is painful (literally), all of apple's keyboards both on their desktop and laptops are incredibly flat. For me and a few other people apple users out there, A little too Flat, that its caused some pretty stiff and intense Repeitive Stress Injuries (RSI) in my hands and fingers

    If you value comfort over form switch to another keyboard, some thats not so flat, and more ergonomic, personally i like the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic 4000 keyboard. Plugs in via USB, and all the keys are there and work. However if your going to tough be prepared to see a occupational injury physio therapist.


    Summery
    Beautiful but lethal on fingers
    Try it before you buy it, the pain does not appear right away. for me it came up 2-3 days of use after i started on it.

    Broke in one Year

    • Written by from Novi

    Nothing had been spilled on it ever, nothing unusual had ever happened to it. After a year, the left half of the keys stopped working so I couldn't log in to my user any longer. I am typing this from a friends computer. Other than this issue, It worked fine. But I'm thinking I may buy a usb keyboard to replace it instead of another copy.

    Not enthralled

    • Written by from Toronto

    I like not having the cord, but the action isn't great on this thing. The keyboard has this really cheap, hollow, plastic-like feel to it. It's more Fischer-Price than Apple. I've had the wireless for about a month. I'm trying to like it, but I just can't used to the feel of the new keyboard. If I had a chance for a do-over, I wouldn't have bought this thing.

    Not backlit

    • Written by from Pittsburg

    Bought this to use with my MacBook when it is connected to my tv. It weighs about as much as a paper clip which is taking some getting used to since I type in my lap. I'm baffled as to why it has white textured keys, I can't wait to see how dirty it will look in a year. The lack of a backlight is completely dumb and I would have purchased another keyboard if I would have realized this before.

    KEYBOARD FOR NEW COMPUTER (IMAC)

    • Written by from Van Nuys

    I cannot do power typing on this keyboard AT ALL--I make numerous typos. So...I slide out my keyboard drawer, put a plug in keyboard that I had in the garage, and keep the wireless one in back of the keyboard. I love the look of the wireless keyboard, and what it's about, but can't use it!! I am very disappointed. Does anyone have an idea how to have a 'plug-in keyboard' that is totally compatible with Mac, and you can actually power type on it???

    Beware When Cleaning

    • Written by from Phoenix

    Using a dab of rubbing alcohol on a microfiber cloth has caused some of the keys to short. Pressing 't' causes a 't' followed by unending "'" keypresses until another key has been pressed. The same for the 'g' and 'b' keys. I've been cleaning keyboards like this for 10+ years with no problems. I've even had keyboards accidentally spilled on that continued working after sufficient drying. For what you pay, this keyboard is not reliable enough. It's a shame because I really like the Apple keyboards.

    Best keyboard ever!!!!!

    • Written by from stirling

    This is the best keyboard I have ever typed on, in fact I'm typing on it right now. I love its smooth clicking keys, slim blueotth design, and the fact that i can stop/play, mute, fast forward and change the volume of my music. I can change the brightness of the screen and even bring up the on screen keyboard for my emojicons. There are no cons with this apple device, love it!

    wireless keyboard

    • Written by from Houma

    I was very, very disappointed in the quality of the wireless keyboard that came with my new iMac. It is too small and too lightweight, it is difficult to type on because the keys are too smooth and flat. Also, the mouse was too small to feel adequate in my hand.

    So......I had to go out and buy a Microsoft wireless keyboard - that had the number pad on the right as Apple deleted that - and a wireless mouse.

    And now some of the functions don't work with the iMac even though the model I bought is supposed to be compatible with the iMac.

    Just really, really disappointed in Apple putting such a cheap keyboard & mouse with such a fine desk top computer.

    Apple Wireless Key Board

    • Written by from Pasig City

    It is a very useful accessory for my iPad. I don't know why some have issues with battery life. But I have used mine for more than a year daily for 8 to 10 hours except a few weekends and I have not replaced the original lbatteries I put in.

    Surprisingly disappointed

    • Written by from Summit

    I just recently bought the new iMac, which comes with this wireless keyboard. It looks nice on my desk, but constantly needs to be given new batteries. But there are no other iMac keyboards, really, so I guess this is just a warning to keep a box of batteries near your computer.

    Otherwise, the design is rather elegant and aplomb the way it can be moved from one spot to another without the cord! I hope I help :)

    ipad3 paired with wireless keyboard

    • Written by from Fayetteville

    I had to write a review on this product only because I tried another brand of wireless keyboard thinking they would be basically the same. They were not. I tried it out over night and took it back to the store the next day and got the apple keyboard. The apple keyboard was cheaper than the less popular brand and the keys were more responsive and registered clicks were spot on! I highly reccomend it! I love it with my ipad3! There are some features that don't work with the ipad, but for heavy typing for long periods of time the ipad3 was a bit frustrating. I find this keyboard very impressive and helpful!

    how did i get by without this? And why?

    • Written by from San Antonio

    I love my wireless keyboard so much I had to write a review. It paired easily with my old Macbook (sort of a Lazurus project) and my newer 13" MacbookPro. A whole row of keys and the battery on the old Macbook got fried when someone accidentally drowned it a few years back. Thanks to my new wireless keyboard, "It's alive!" I had to turn the new MacbookPro off while i was pairing to the old Mac and vice versa but the keyboard now works fine with both. I noticed some folks mentioned problems with paring.. I know I had to be patient...it seemed like it couldn't find it initially but now we are locked and loaded with no problems whatsoever.

    Also, the keyboard is light yet durable and angled which offers a more ergo-friendliy experience then even the Macbook itself. Works great with the Magic Mouse and no problems using with RocketFIsh adapter to 22" monitor. Thank you Apple for making such a stellar and affordable product. Worth every penny!

    Nice keyboard with some flaws

    • Written by from Cranford

    THe keyboard is made out of aluminum which gives it a nice look the only flaw is that the caps light will burn out so you can't tell if its on or off.

    Great, but why not full-sized??

    • Written by from Fairfax

    The smaller size is handy for throwing in a notebook bag and hitting the road, but at my desk I need the real thing. What I don't understand is why Apple discontinued the full-sized wireless keyboard. Why not have both? Rather short-sighted if you ask me. It's these types of moves by Apple that makes me wonder what they are thinking, or even if they're thinking, inside or outside the box.

    Excellent keyboard

    • Written by from San Antonio

    I've been using mine for two years now, and I'm delighted with it. Solid construction, great key feel, stable, and extremely reliable. I hammer keys, and I have a long history of breaking keyboards. This one has survived my abuse with no problems. It has also survived a couple of coffee spills. Best keyboard I've ever owned.

    Incidentally, I use rechargeable batteries and get about three weeks from a charge, I think, but I don't pay careful attention. I use the keyboard for most of my workday.

    Numeric Pad

    • Written by from san francisco

    This keyboard is great. The gripe I have is that Apple has not built a full function wireless keyboard. A full function keyboard with a keypad by Apple does not come in wireless? Really?
