    Looks great, keys feel a bit flimsy, dashboard softkey does not work

    • Written by from Amesbury

    I'd been looking for a solid lighted actual-Mac keyboard for ages now, and at around a hundred bucks I figured the Luna was worth taking a gamble on. As others have said, it looks fantastic. The lighting is perfect adn the design is great.

    Two things - one is that on Mountain Lion the dashboard softkey does not work at all, and there appears to be no real troubleshooting that I can do for it.

    Secondly - the keys feel a tad on the cheap side. I was hoping that they'd be macbook-quality in terms of build and feel, but they feel much thinner. It's not a big problem for me but if you are rough on your keyboards I think this might break pretty easy on you.

    For the price it's worth it, just be aware of the shortcomings.

    Keys are not in their normal location

    • Written by from Long Beach

    If you use a lot of keyboard shortcuts...be aware that the CONTROL, OPTION and CMD keys are not in the exact same location as the standard Mac keyboard. Even the space bar is slightly moved to the left. This takes some time to re-learn the location which I wasn't expecting. There is also an additional FN key on the right side which is not on a standard keyboard. I seem to keep hitting that when trying to find the CONTROL key. Otherwise the design is cool and the quality seems to be quite good. Also, there is no USB hub like on the standard Mac keyboard.

    Nice but issues

    • Written by from Fort Smith

    Just fired up my nice new Moshi keyboard.
    I tried it on my Windows 7 PC but it would not work - would not even boot up.
    It came with no info or instructions so I figured it was up to me.
    I tried it on my MacBook Pro.
    Plugged it in and nothing - messed with it for a while and checked The Google - still nothing.
    At my wits end I pressed the Luna key and behold, it gave commands. After a few steps it was finally recognized and working.
    But not the mousepad - I had to connect an external mouse for that - which I usually do anyway so no big deal. Just odd.
    I like my old Mac keyboard a bit better - slightly more refined key action. But this Luna is still nice.
    It is frustrating that keystrokes for cut and paste do not work though - have to use the right mouse button for that. Or is there a fix for that too?
    I am a writer and I love the backlit keys on my MacBook. It allows me to work at night and on the plane on long trips. I just ordered a MacBook Air because of that - I would have tried the new Microsoft Surface but they do not offer backlit keys. Mac is always a step higher in design quality it seems.
    But why don't they make an Apple backlit ext. keyboard? Bizzare.
