Apple New Wired Keyboard

Very thin and lite weight. The new key design has a great feel and very large keys so you don't make many mistakes.
THE ONE PROBLEM I HAVE WITH IT IS the two usb ports will not support an ipod. I have the video Ipod and I get a warning that the USB power is too low to power the attached device. I bought this key board to clear away clutter on my desk and hopefully eliminate a few cords. Unfortunately its not true and I was disappointed. I am very much an apple fan but the low USB ports were a not as advertised on the website. …

Took a little while to get the feel of it, but now it's second-nature. Once problem...Boot Camp. This little baby uses Function keys for audio up and down and brightness, and Vista really didn't like it. Sadly, I'm going to have to keep using my old keyboard until they update BootCamp to work with this new keyboard. That's why I'm only giving three stars. Otherwise, it'd be a full FIVE, baby!

I've bought at least 10 of these this year alone, multiple computers of course in a computational environment. I'd guess half sti I've bought at least 10 of these this year alone, multiple computers of course in a computational environment. I'd guess half still work. They break in a few creative ways. One is only recognized after a ritual of (dis)connecting it a few times. A couple of others refuse to work with Cinema Displays. A few others have unresponsive keys.
These keyboards attract a lot of dirt. I recommend cleaning them to our staff, which is probably where I got it wrong. Cleaning seems to break them. Maybe they'd last longer coupled with a cover, but I hate those.
Probably go back to tried and true PC keyboards. Not as sexy, but I've never had one break. Ever. …

This apple keyboard crapped on me in less than 4 months. Worked when I went to bed, wouldn't work this morning. Poof, gone.

What happened to putting out a quality product? Come on Apple, are you so focused on mobile devices that you're now blowing off us desktop users? Many of us have paid premium prices for many years for apple products which is what got you (apple) to where you are today, and you allow a piece of junk keyboard like this on the market?

Would give it five stars, but...
This is my second keyboard - the same model. Apparently I killed some keys on my first one by scrubbing a little too vigorously on This is my second keyboard - the same model. Apparently I killed some keys on my first one by scrubbing a little too vigorously on a couple of keys - I'm really surprised that it was so sensitive!
I'll handle this one with a little more TLC - I was lost for the four days that it took to get a new keyboard: I have really become accustomed to this one and like it a great deal! …
