    Soft aluminum

    • Written by from Miami

    Very soft aluminum magnesium alloy material that is used for the keyboard frame makes it very susceptible to damage if dropped and rendering it useless especially in the area of the power button. Cool and sleek design at the cost of durability and reliability. I owned my keyboard for less than 24 hours before I found out how quickly I can waste $70

    Fragile Keyboard

    • Written by from Alto

    Now on our third keyboard in less than 2 years with the iMac. Built to last just beyond the warranty. Bought a competitor keyboard and it works fine. Would not recommend this product to anyone.

    Very disappointing keyboard.

    • Written by from Portland

    I purchased this keyboard because of my years of satisfaction with Mac products. What a mistake. For the first month it functioned just fine with the exception of having to repeatedly "resynch" with my iMac. Then it started failing right in mid sentence as I was working on a document. This would occur as much as 5xs a day. Extremely frustrating. Then after 6 months it stopped working period. I will think twice before replacing it with another one or buying any mac peripherals. I can now put it in my "dead drawer" where my wireless mac mouse, mac battery charger and mac batteries permanently reside.

    Too difficult to use...

    • Written by from Etobicoke

    I wish I knew why apple does not make a full size wireless keyboard anymore. I had to return this as it is truly awful to use without the number pad. They really need to make a full sized wireless keyboard!

    They don't make'em like they used to...

    • Written by from Hillsboro

    I bought an apple wireless keyboard in ... 2007 with my iMac. Still using the iMac. They keyboard worked flawlessly. Last month, in a bit or rational exuberance, I decided I wanted to upgrade to the new, 2-battery version (cuz that extra battery of the old one was really slowing me down....). Got the new keyboard, plunked fresh, super-expensive Energizer Advanced batteries and commenced to use it. A week into it, the keyboard would once a day lose its connection for a few seconds and then reconnect with the iMac. The keyboard's, like, a foot away from the iMac. As the days progressed, this interruption became more frequent. Last night it was as if someone was pushing the keyboard's switch every 30 seconds: drop/find/drop/find, etc. I changed batteries, I checked the switch: nuttin'. Just kept cycling all evening. So ... I tossed the thing. $69 down the drain for a month's worth of use. I took out the seven-year-old wireless one, plunked in the two batteries and another one and ... the thing's been hummin' along just fine. Lesson of the day: one more diehard Mac follower who's getting mighty tired of buying flimsy, unreliable junk from the Big-A.

    Worthless after one month

    • Written by from Columbia

    The keyboard came with the iMac that I purchased, and was a little small for my taste, so I decided to use it for my iPad 2 and get a Logitech solar keyboard for the iMac. Everything was great for about a month, and then, after the second time I had to change the batteries, the wireless keyboard would no longer connect to any device, including the iMac. There's no way to reset it, and it will no longer set up with the desktop. I'm not happy with this at all.

    apple fans will never complain about apple

    • Written by from Erie

    This is the worst keyboard i have ever used. It is basically a laptop keyboard for a desktop designed to save this company money. I have and always will use the numerical keypad on the right side of the unit. This can be used very quickly and accurately. Not this thing it was designed by Mickey mouse. Keys are not in the same spots so that takes some getting used to. But come on NO NUMBER PAD on a desktop keyboard. Why not skip the keyboard and go to a desktop with just a touch screen.

    It looks so pretty to bad i have to hook up my old apple keyboard.

    Don't forget the batteries.

    • Written by from Temecula

    I really liked the look of this keyboard, and it worked well with my iPad. Unfortunately, my need for such a keyboard is too infrequent. The batteries eventually leaked and the cap to access the battery compartment is now fused to the housing... cannot be removed. Word of caution: Keep your batteries fresh. Corroded aluminum is unforgiving and you will need to buy a new keyboard if this happens.

    Too small and different size than my MacBook Air keyboard

    • Written by from PASADENA

    This wireless keyboard came with a new iMac 27" that I purchased recently. While I love the large screen for the iMac I am frustrated by the keyboard.

    I toggle between my MacBook Air when I am out of the office and my iMac when in the office. The keyboard causes me all sorts of problems.

    1) It is too small

    2) The keys feel like they are closer together on the wireless keyboard vs. the laptop, causing all sorts of problems

    3) The ergonomics required to use the keyboard are bad -- there is no place rest ones wrists as is the case with a laptop

    It seems that Apple does not make a wireless FULL SIZE keyboard so I may need to switch to a wired one.

    Do not buy

    • Written by from Ballasalla

    I have got one with the iMac that I bought few years ago. I was not happy at all. Very energy hungry, if you are doing something more than just searching the web, it will be really annoying to replace batteries every few weeks. Why on earth they are pushing this piece of junk with an iMac which, I guess, is probably being bought mainly by the guys who actually want to do something more than just consume media (those guys will perfectly do with a tablet only). Anyway, to make long story short, I bought a 'no name usb keyboard' for about 20 pounds, it is not perfect, but at least it works without batteries.

    I hate this keyboard

    • Written by from Nutley

    I had to replace my keyboard and I decided to give this one a go. I hate it already. I hate that Apple doesn't make a full size version. I bought the numeric keypad extension but why should I have to do that? It costs more money, requires more batteries, is made of plastic, and because this keyboard is smaller the arrow keys are in the wrong place and the Page/Home keys are missing, as are F13 and up.

    I understand that some people may not care about this, but I do and this was the only version I could get. I have to decide if I'm going to keep this or go back to a wired keyboard. It would be a lot better if Apple just made this in a full sized version.

    Bad Keys

    • Written by from Ocean View

    I just purchased my third keyboard today from Apple, I selected the Apple Standard and I hope I have better luck with it then I did with the 2 wireless keyboards I have purchased in the last 4 years. I love my Mac, but both of the keyboards I purchased have had keys stop responding after about 2 years. Now, in order to type, I'm using BOTH keyboards. My A key went out on keyboard #2, luckily I had kept Keyboard #1 - which had lost it's delete key and h key. I've been typing this way for a few weeks now, looking for a way to repair either board, no luck - so, I'm out another $69. I don't recommend buying this keyboard, unless you budget replacements.

    Keyboard is too small

    • Written by from San Francisco

    The keyboard would be fine if it was larger. It is too small for most adult male hands. Not only is it prone to typing errors, for me it is an ergonomic disaster due to the cramped position of the hands.

    Expensive pricetag, cheap quality - DO NOT BUY

    • Written by from Minto

    What a poorly constructed device this is. Such a disappointment. Both my trackpad and wireless keyboard were replaced under warranty. Now that they are out of warranty (still only 2 years old though), I am left with two very expensive paper weights. I have seen this happen to other people as well.

    If I could give this no stars I would. Do yourself a favour and buy something else.

    Stopped working

    • Written by from Raleigh

    I had been happy with the keyboard since I bought it 3 months ago but it just stopped working, I changed the batteries three times and it no longer is being picked up by my computer. I did not change any settings, it just stopped working while I was working on a paper. There is no support topic on this problem yet I remember reading reviews about this when I considered purchasing this keyboard initially. I should have paid attention to the reviews. I'm very disappointed it did not last longer.

    Poor quality impossible to work on!

    • Written by from London

    I had this for about 18 months now and it's already almost unusable. It keeps losing the connection to my iMac every 20-30 seconds so I have to reset. I exchanged batteries and done everything. Very disappointed since I love Apple for making everything so easy to use and good quality. This fails both of those criteria.

    Keep a USB keyboard handy

    • Written by from Dubin 14

    Great keyboard until you are reduced to sacrificing chickens to get it to pair with a Mac Pro. It's happened several times over the last year. Normally I can re-pair thru Bluetooth preferences but the last time around the keyboard refused to enter discovery mode. The only fix was to physically walk it away from the house until the led started to blink again then turn around and go back home! After that it paired successfully though that's not a word I'd bandy about for this product.

    Luckily I had an old USB keyboard lying around or there would have been no way to log in.

    Ergonomics anyone?

    • Written by from Eagle River

    This goes for both the wireless and the wired keyboard with number pad.
    It doesn't matter how shiny, streamlined and flashy you make it. I don't care if it weighs less than a fly's wing and you can stuff it in the smallest bag you can find for easy portability...Mac Keyboards are not ergonomic. If, like me, you spend a considerable amount of time typing, then these are the worst keyboards ever made.
    Why can't they make something that will not hurt you in the long run?

    Broke, wouldn't buy again

    • Written by from Altrincham

    Delivery, setup & connection fine - a functional, ergonomic keyboard, until you come to change the batteries.

    The battery access cap is seized and is bending coins (the opening tool) before it will open. Solution to this problem on the apple support forum is 'buy a new keyboard' !

    I will get a replacement, but it won't be apple. VERY DISAPPOINTED.
