    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.

    Pairing Issues

    • Written by from Baden

    While the keyboard itself is very nice, lightweight, sleek, and overall an excellent design, it does not connect to devices very well. If your keyboard drops the signal you are in for one heck of a nightmare to get it to reconnect to anything at all. I have read tons of forums to try and fix the problem but nothing seems to work. I have had it for not even a day and I have spent the last 3 hours trying to get it to reconnect to no avail. It is very frustrating, and overall very unhelpful when there is no direction in the instruction manual to resolve these issues

    Well rounded wireless keyboard

    • Written by from huntington

    This keyboard is quite near compatable with every Macintosh, Classics suchs as eMac g4 with usb bt chip, Any device that can take a Bluetooth keyboard,
    The only problem I have had with paring has been with Samsung devices, Rooted and custom rom did not resolve the problem..
    I recall a difficult time to pair with the Samsung 7 inch tablet. "shows for 2 seconds out of 245563 attempts"
    My current cellphone is an android lg-e973 and pairs like cake
    My only problem is the life of the board, Guess I should use lithium's or get a better rechargeables

    Oh wait the major fail on apples part is the genius is how to replace the cells
    0. find a coin bigger then a dime
    1. use coin to remove small cover
    2. change the 3 cells
    3. lose the small cover some where's in the r0om.

    Why do I love the PlayStation 3 controllers sell so well?
    Standard usb charger port and blutooth and able to charge+play with usb, and compatibility as wide as this keyboard.
    Why I compaired to ps3 controllers? Because its user friendly human interface and I want apple to use this in there next keyboard upgrade

    I would glady buy a new keyboard if it had a mega battery life, and was able to work via usb while charging,+ having and be able to pair to a set device by pressing a number key. if I could plug my phone in to the keyboard and have the phone charge
    that sysadmin guy would buy with my features.

    Not worth the materials its made from

    • Written by from Leduc

    This is the single worst keyboard i have ever owned, and i have own something out of the 80's with half the keys missing. It is an absolute nightmare to try and pair it with anything. Macbook says "Couldn't connect to device", iPhone doesn't even see it. got it to connect on my android tablet but it disconnected itself 5 seconds later. i really can't tell how it feels to type on it because it wouldn't pair with anything to save its life. I think I'm going to melt it down and make some sort of modern art piece.

    Unreliable

    • Written by from Cambridge Park

    This keyboard is very fragile and unreliable. Not suitable for heavy use. Expect an early keys malfunctions - mine started printing Y when SHIFT was pressed and produced intermittent spaces, then stopped pairing and died.

    Am currently using keyboard now. Have had no issues what so ever with it and managed to pair with my ipad in less than 1 minute. Keyboard has soft keys which are easy to touch compared to other keyboards. I would thoroughly recommend this product

    Light and compact, but lacking in functionality.

    • Written by from London

    Beyond the obvious benefits of wireless technology, this keyboard unfortunately sacrifices too much functionality to achieve its slight, compact form.

    Fine for casual use, although anyone with average to large hands may find even this to be a struggle.

    It excludes a number of keys, which in my case is a deal-breaker.

    Lacking are: home/end, page up/down, delete and F13 keys, as well as numeric keyboard (with associated keys and layout)

    It also has a single ctrl key (on the left) instead of the usual two.

    Inadequate for workflows associated with a lot of keyboard shortcuts, and not great for number crunchers either.

    Best keyboard for iPad

    • Written by from Belleville

    I've had scores of other keyboards. But the fact that this one is a full sized keyboard (unlike Logitech, whose design I like for case and keyboard but the keyboard is not very functional for someone who types a great deal) is a plus. The only real down side is that there's no case for the iPad and keyboard. I ended up purchasing the origami case for the keyboard (after carrying it around with me in the original box for YEARS) and a case for my newly upgraded iPad Air (upgraded from an iPad 2).

    I wish Apple would get with the program and design something for both or come up with a new keyboard/case for it's product.
