    Wireless keyboard useless

    • Written by from Birmingham

    Just got brand new mac at work 2 weeks ago. Wireless keyboard useless. Keeps loosing signal. When the signal drops the last key stroke is repeated until signal returns. Poor software coding can only cause this. Very bad when signal drops whilst pressing the back space key. You loose all your work. Funny really cos 3 other users not had a problem yet. Anyway need to change to one with numpad so will buy one with usb cable. New apple mouse will have to go also. Will get a wheel mouse. If I cannot get a true British English keyboard layout to work with correct @ key position I will be asking my director to swap it for the windows 7 cad PC. Still using my win Xp pro machine that still does what I want it to. Most important part of a PC is the mouse and keyboard.

    Waster of money

    • Written by from SOUTHAMPTON

    Never works properly always having to pair keyboard with Macbook and never works with bootcamp. This will soon go the way of the Apple Mouse with an axe through it.

    Made me ditch the remote.

    • Written by from Richmond

    Before i got my first truly modern Mac, I was using an iMac G5 followed by a white plastic Intel. Both of those had wired keyboards and I had to use the Apple Remote to control the iTunes when I'm not close in front of the machine. However, I bought a 2011 27" iMac used and it came with both the remote and this. I immediately found myself ditching the remote and doing everything remotely on the keyboard, whether it's controlling itunes, typing, or controlling the computer. And since it's not IR, it can be used anywhere in the range. The remote just sits there collecting dust right now… Also it seems to be very efficient or maybe it's the less use it gets because the mouse dies faster than the keyboard.

    corrosion

    • Written by from Hannover

    as many others I have the same problem that after a short period of storage, the batteries corroded and making it impossible to open or repair. Apparently there are no replacements from apple! This seams to be a serious issue and one should consider this before buying a keyboard and possibly risking 69 dollars.

    space key doesn't work well

    • Written by from Nelson

    The keyboard is OK and has a small footprint. I've had issues with it disconnecting and that's a pain. The worst thing is the keys aren't very good for fast typing and the space key needs a very firm press. As it stands, I'm not using it!

    JUST PLAIN USELESS

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    A lot of users have hit the nail right on the head with this one. Looks sleek, modern etc. BUT...many issues getting this keyboard to work. Batteries, pairing issues top the list. What a shame!!!! The only thing equally as bad is the mouse and track pad. Truly a trifecta of trash from Apple.

    Good enough.

    • Written by from Villanova

    I've had this keyboard for a good 2 years, but this year, the lower row (zxcvbnm) just stopped working. I don't know what happened, but it was something with the cables inside. I didn't want to take it to the Apple Store to get it fixed cause that would just be more money. Instead, I got another wireless Mac keyboard, but it was a full-size (with the num. pad) solar powered Logitech one for $10 less than the smaller Apple one which works like a charm.
    SO yeah, I would only get this keyboard if you bought an Apple computer that came with it like my iMac, otherwise you can get a better less expensive one. It's still not bad.

    The Best ever

    • Written by

    This keyboard is sleek and good looking and everything. it has access to a lot of features and has a lot of options. But for pc users, they need some way to edit their keyboard to, but i'm a mac user so i don't care. the keys are all responsive (except for a small flaw in the caps lock, could be just mine) and not being able to tell if its on or not. the wireless is awesome, never disconnects, and these Ωƒß¥†ƒ∑ƒ˚ߨ¥©•ªtg2h©ß¨¥ƒßˆ¬¥ƒ¥™¨∂¬ƒ©ˆ†¶©π® i love doing that and i love this keyboard <3

    STYLE AND PRACTICALTY

    • Written by from LEICESTER

    I haven't had this very long but am already in love with it. I use it it with my iPad and prefer it to the pop up keyboard. I'm still getting to know the keys and although it doesn't have the full functionality as when used with an Apple Mac it is still well worth the money.

    There was no problem pairing it with my iPad at all so I was up and running almost as soon as it was out of the box! I have never had any problems connecting with it since pairing, as long as I remember to switch it on! The battery life is very impressive and as it turns itself off if means your not wasting them either.

    It is light and comfortable to hold , much lighter than the iPad itself. And not only that it is a good looking piece of equipment to boot.

    I would recommend this product without qualms.

    Nice design, does not work with Bootcamp/Win 8.1

    • Written by from Hilversum

    Nice keyboard with exactly the same layout as the one on my MacBook Pro. Strangely this keyboard does work on Windows 7, but not on my Bootcamp partition with Windows 8.1.

    Great product!

    • Written by

    This keyboard came with my iMac in a nice package and the design of the keyboard was great. It was sleek and very impressive. It is very comfortable to type with, but since I am used to Windows PC keyboards, it took a few days to master as the size was smaller and slightly more cramped, but this you can overcome quickly. I am fairly quick typer and I could type on here with no errors even though the size is smaller than other keyboards. Setup was easy with a new Mac because it was connected to the computer at startup, and it probably is as easy to pair if you bought a replacement. The shortcut keys at the top of the keyboard are fast and easy to adjust basic settings such as brightness and volume and access mission control, launchpad etc. In fact they are quicker and easier than access via the multi touch gestures of the mouse (not sure about trackpad though.)

    Overall, I would highly recommend this keyboard for any Mac desktop user as it gets the job done perfectly, as well as incorporating added functionality and a sleek and attractive design.

    Great Buy

    • Written by from Manchester

    Just purchased the keyboard in order to type more easily on my ipad mini as the screen is difficult to type for any entended period of time on. absolute quality bit of kit, sleekdesign, in fitting with everything apple produce, decent sized keyboard and individual keys making typing free and easy and easy to set up and connect. Would thoroughly recommend for anyone in need of a keyboard for an ipad

    Batteries corrode in the wireless keyboard ....can't open to replace

    • Written by from frankfort

    Second day of school.....8 o'clock at night..... And a paper needs to be written. No such luck !! The batteries in the wireless keyboard have apparently corroded inside the keyboard so badly that I can not open the battery door !! Funny.... I used the keyboard all day without a problem and without the computer giving me any notices that the batteries were low. Tried and tried to get the battery door open ......IMPOSSIBLE! Even got metal shaving slivers in my hand because the metal is so soft where the battery door opens.

    Great feel - no 10 keypad and forward delete

    • Written by from Niceville

    I love the feel of the Apple keyboards and the portability of the wireless keyboards. However - I have to stick with my wired keyboard until Mac puts out a wireless keyboard w/ a 10 keypad and forward delete. There are add-ons out there, but that's just it - they are add ons. 10 keypads are so much easier not only for spreadsheets and work but also for entering long number codes such as tracking numbers and credit card numbers, etc. Such a simple fix and yet they are so reluctant to make it. Why?!?

    Making a move to OSX keyboarding

    • Written by from Dudley

    Making the move from Windows to OSX was something i never expected to be completely painless. However since the advent of windows 8 the choice was made for me, and so came the need to relearn how to use a Mac Keyboard. FACT like keys do different things. However after a short while of re-teaching yourself all becomes second nature. This was all made easier with the help of this apple cut down keyboard. none of the pesky shortcut keys windows forces you to use. so to the device, firstly it looks great, the same high equality finish so many try to emulate. The battery life is great and setup could not be more simple. the keys are response and well spaced.

    One word of warning this is a reduced key set keyboard like a macbook. If like a number of those giving this peripheral a low score you are to complain about the lack of page up/down keys or the delete key. Get the full size apple keyboard with numeric pad.

    This is what it advertises to be nothing more. it is however very good at doing this.

    Perfect and swift

    • Written by from Findlay

    I just bought an iMac and I chose to keep the wireless Keyboard for the first time.

    I work all day on my mac (10 hours a day) and I play quite a lot too (at least 1 hour everyday). In both usage, it is perfect :
    - keys are not too soft but not too hard, they also produce a shuffling sound when you strike them that is comfortable.
    - the keyboard is fast. I play FPS games (Counter Strike, Left4Dead, Team Fortress etc...) and I play Diablo3 and in both case, the Keyboard is responsive, never lagging and really comfortable.
    - I bought the mac a couple months ago and I'm still at 90% of the batteries (included with it) despite an intensive use.
    - the size is the same as the laptop keyboards from the Macbooks. but the angle makes it way more comfortable.

    On the minus side for workers :
    - No numeric keyboard. I don't care, my work doesn't make me need that, but some people will be annoyed.
    - white keys get grey really fast (dirty). You still can clean them really easily.

    Unuseable. Once it un-pairs, you're done.

    • Written by from Boulder

    When it unpairs itself, there is absolutely nothing you can do to get it to re-pair. I've tried at least 30 different things listed in the Apple forums and nothing works. It used to work, now it's just a large paperweight.

    Nice keyboard

    • Written by from Ystradgynlais

    Bought one for use with my Mac Mini after I spilled tea over my cheaper genreric bluetooth keyboard. Unlike that one the apple keyboard doesn't disconnect after being idle for 5 minutes. The sleek design looks good and the keys are good to the touch. Being a touch typist, my one gripe is the in the layout of the @ and " keys which are the "wrong" way around. Although this can be corrected by selecting Brtish PC as the input source, I am trying to see if I can get on with the layout as is. Another gripe, which applies to all UK keyboards, do we really need the $ key? This should be replaced, IMO, by the € key. A suggestion that Apple might consider on future keyboards.

    That said, it was still a good purchase.

    Best keyboard iv ever bought.

    • Written by from edwardsville

    this keyboard is thin, very sturdy, always responsive and iv found its compatible with every device iv tried it on. this list includes iPads, the microsoft surface, dell laptops, HP laptops and my dell desktop. I bought this with 2 rechargeable batteries and i haven't looked back. i also find its a little easier to type on this particular keyboard than on a standard logitec or dell one. idk if its due to the key size and shape or overall size and shape or the tilt or what but i can definitely say i saw an increase in speed once i started using this keyboard.

    Keyboard has No Working iPad Navigation Keys

    • Written by from Honolulu

    I am using the wireless keyboard to type this review on my iPad. It works--for typing.

    However, the most used function keys don't work. First, the keyboard has no home key or equivalent. Consequently, you must reach over and push the home button on your iPad. Second, the arrow keys do not scroll web pages. Also, there are no shortcut keys to toggle between applications.

    Basically, the keyboard has no working iPad navigation keys. My expectation was this this Apple keyboard would be fully compatible with the latest iPad. It is not.
