    All round, A great "little" keyboard!

    • Written by from Gloucester

    Again, a great piece of technology... Stylish, Fast, and I use the word "little"... Firstly, it looks great. Its aluminium housing fits in with all apple computers and notebooks, but still looks good with any computer. It has precision cut edges giving it a reel feel of quality. The keys are a perfect size, feel soft to the touch but strong enough for heavy use. The letter/numbers etc are sort of clear to see, I say sort of because they are quiet difficult to see when in a low light environment which brings me to my only negative point which I will explain below. They are also in a perfect layout, not too close together while not to far apart, leaving ugly empty spaces, which you find on many keyboard today, so it doesn't make you hands/wrists ache after a long time typing as all the keys are at an easy reach! White is where the word little come in, As the keys are placed and arrange they way they are, apple have been able to keep the keyboard small, making it fit onto almost any environment and again keep it looking stylish. As for fast, it connects almost instantly and I have yet to see it buffering/lagging when typing. Battery life I have yet to discover as I have only had the keyboard for 2 weeks. But many other reviews say it last a good amount of time before batteries need replacing. I now come onto my only negative point, which I would say is quite a big one... Backlight... This keyboard would really benefit from a backlight, as seen on the MacBooks... Yes, it would greatly shorten the battery life, but apple could give the keyboard some form of a rechargeable battery that you can recharge by usb for example... But, this aside, its a great "little" keyboard!

    Pros:
    Style
    Size
    Feel
    Layout
    Connectivity

    Cons:
    No Backlight

    Best keyboard I've ever used.

    • Written by from doncaster

    I'm a writer. I've used this keyboard every day for the past 20 months. It still works and looks the same as the day I bought it.

    I cannot recommend it too highly. In short, it's a comfortable to use, great looking and extremely robust keyboard.

    Has it's issues

    • Written by from Canton

    This keyboard was designed almost perfectly, the durability and keys are close to perfect. unfortunately, the fact that I have to put tinfoil in the battery case to get it to work completely ruins this product. For half the money you can get a no name wireless keyboard without this issue.

    Love it!

    • Written by from Murfreesboro

    I have had this keyboard for about a year now. I just now had to change the batteries for the first time. It is a great little tool. Easy to transport and super easy to use. I am able to use Word on my iPad Air with it. Works great! I love it!

    Terrible battery life!

    • Written by from Riverview

    I have this keyboard and the bluetooth mouse. Out of everyone I have ever used for any system these are by far the worst. I have to replace the batteries in both weekly and I'm only on my Mac twice a week for a few minutes. Going to try to return them.

    Wireless Keyboard design flaw

    • Written by from SURBITON

    I've had my wireless keyboard now for about 2 years. In essence it is fine but a design fault appears to be if and when the AA batteries inside corrode - they get stuck and seems impossible to them get out. It's a shame to have to keep replacing peripherals because of design flaws. I shall go back to an Apple wired keyboard when I visit the store tomorrow to replace it.

    Compatibility issues when using WIFI, very disappointed.

    • Written by from Port Elliot

    Although the keyboard and magic trackpad work companionably well with my MBP without WIFI, I have to disconnect bluetooth every time I need to open a web page. I spent a week troubleshooting the issue sourcing Apple Support, Discussions and the web in general with no satisfactory solution. That is, nothing worked. Apple seriously need to address compatibility issues here. After all, their own products should work seamlessly together. Internet use is essential in almost every application nowadays, so I've had to put my wireless keyboard and trackpad away permanently. I purchased the pair for ergonomic reasons and so have the MBP elevated on a stand with it's built-in keyboard slanting down on an angle. It is even worse ergonomically when I have to lean across the wireless keyboard to use the MBP to turn bluetooth on and off and use it's keyboard and trackpad while I use the internet. Furthermore, after very limited use in a two-week period, with bluetooth disconnected 95% of the time, the battery level of the keyboard has gone down to 0%. I'm very disappointed as they were bought only for the ergonomics to address back and neck issues from overuse of the MBP. Not forgetting money wasted.

    Replacement for badly designed previous model

    • Written by from London

    If anyone's looking at getting this keyboard because they're previous (3 battery) one has died - try inserting a little roll of tinfoil in before the batteries. This is a common fix for supposedly 'dead' bluetooth keyboards (badly designed by Apple).

    Unfortunately mine has complete died while changing the batteries, which isn't great. £60 down the toilet, for something I looked after well. How can changing a set of batteries kill a piece of 'high-end' electronics? Oh, that's right, it's cheap rubbish that looks nice...

    Very disappointing

    THE remote-keyboard

    • Written by from Radomlje

    It goes all around my room constantly. I've been using it almost like a remote (comp connected to tv). People sat and stepped on it. Fell quite a few times (3,4 foot drops)... Everything works even after 3 years of abuse from humans. The only thing that sometimes bothers me is that when i go on the balcony for a cig, the connection stops and i can't change the music. I get around that with my phone so not really a big problem, but the keyboard has to be 10-15 feet from the computer to work properly.

    Worthless piece of junk.

    • Written by from Port Washington

    Just wanna say, i am very disappointed in the iMac wireless keyboard. I have had it barely two years, yesterday the delete key, zero, and space bar stopped working, after having a friend who works at Apple check it out for me, he said it seems to have just shorted out. There is no damage to the keyboard what so ever, it's never been dropped or had anything spilled on it, yet it just stopped working. $70 to replace it. I have a Dell from 8 years ago where the original keyboard still works just fine.. Makes me almost regret switching to a Mac. They make a pretty product, but it is expensive and not meant to last. I basically only use this computer for editing photos..it's not like i am typing away all day long on it. Should a $70 keyboard be breaking like this in only two years? I will admit, i enjoy other features of the iMac, like it basically being wireless, but to me this keyboard seems poorly made, with only a 1 year warranty. So if you are out of warranty you are out of luck, and must buy a new one, because the computer is worthless without a functioning keyboard.

    Best Keyboard Ever

    • Written by from Denver

    I have used my wireless keyboard since I got my iMac in 2008. No problems. Ever. Not with batteries, not with connection, nothing. It's always possible one or several pieces of hardware fail. Happened to Apollo 13, no reason for anyone to imply all keyboards are lemons.

    Suddenly stopped working...

    • Written by from State College

    Until this week, I would have given the keyboard a 5 rating - worked great. Moved to our second home last week, and it has not worked since. Why not? I have only had the keyboard for a couple of months. The batteries should not have needed to be changed. But, I changed the batteries, and it is still not discoverable ... No idea what to do. Very frustrating!! BTW, my MacAir and Magic Mouse are fine and working well...

    BATTERIES & THE APPLE WIRELESS KEYBOARD

    • Written by from Paducah

    This keyboard is a high risk purchase. I just spent over an hour trying to remove the two AA batteries required to power up the unit. They were jammed in the chamber. Unfortunately, mine won't power up now, after having to force the old batteries. I wasn't able to safely get them out without apparently damaging something. It's frustrating that the chamber was made with such little room to spare. Clearly others have had this issue, as noted in discussion threads on how to fix this issue. Side note: I used duracell pro cell. I highly doubt the battery is to blame...

    Apple Wireless Keyboard needs some work

    • Written by from Richland

    I have had two Apple wireless keyboards. Both have had the 'S' key go bad. Coincidence? I think not. Very frustrating. Make sure you do not use an 'S' in your sign on password. I will be looking for a different product next time.

    Best Keyboard in the World

    • Written by from HOUSTON

    I have had this keyboard for about a week. There has been no pairing issues and battery problems. The batteries are still at 100%. The keyboard looks very nice, clean etc. One of the very good things about it is it has bluetooth. The keyboard makes many people type faster with it, because of its cicklet keys. I have a setup up of a macbook pro retina attached to two monitors and almost all of the ports of the laptop are now full. The keyboard also takes up very small amount of space. It also makes you even neater because you can see all the papers and other thing s on your desk. It works very very well considering how many things are connected to my laptop and there has been no pairing problems. Apple will continue makes very good products and that why everybody likes apple
