    The best keyboard you'll EVER use!

    • Written by from Parksville

    When i purchased this keyboard, i thought I'd like it because i have a older macbook Pro. (purchased just before the current ones came out...man, was i annoyed) To me, it seemed the feel would be similar, and it is. I'd say the new keyboard has a little more spring to the keys though, they feel a little more firm, and i think that's a benefit. It took me a little while to get used to the key placements, since there are small spaces between the keys. I've only had it for a day or so, and its already made me regret not buying it sooner. Also note, if you plan to use a wrist pad or anything which will elevate your hands off the surface the keyboard rests on, be careful, i learned the hard way. This is designed to be comfortable on a desk, thus the thin shape, so if you're using it in a keyboard tray with a wrist rest, be prepared to either modify the tray, or use a book. My one complaint is the space bar. to me it feels a little soft. It doesn't have quite the spring and resistance the other keys do. It doesn't really change anything for ME, but if you let your thumbs rest on the space bar, you're going to overwork office's auto correct to no end. :)
    I would also like to mention the the weight of the keyboard. In every other review its labeled as "sturdy". I would most defiantly agree. The bottom of the keyboard IS plastic, but it feels like its 1/8 of an inch think, it feels solid, rather than a piece of plastic with a thin piece of aluminum over it should. Its a beautiful design.
    You know, if i was using a PC for some ungodly reason, i'd still buy this keyboard. That's how good it is.
    Just remember, don't get discouraged jsut because it feels funny for day or two, you'll get used to it.

    Better than keyboards costing twice as much

    • Written by from Tacoma

    No keyboard can totally meet the needs of every user, but this one comes close. We have keyboards in our office that cost over $200 that are inferior. The only complaint I have is that moving from my Macbook Pro (silver Keyboard) to this one takes a period of adjustment with a lot of errors. The difference in key shape and spacing is very noticeable.

    I notice some complaints here about this keyboard failing to provide sufficient power for some USB devices. I would like to point out that no keyboard will produce more power than the source to which it is connected. If you connect this keyboard to a low power source, you can not expect it to power a high power device.

    you may have problems with the usb because...

    • Written by from Marco Island

    It clearly states on the mac website, when looking at a new mac keyboard, that the usb ports will not support iPods or other attachments that require more power than a flash drive unless hooked up to an aluminum iMac

    So before writing a review, do your research.

    Great Keyboard

    • Written by from Alton

    This is a keyboard that I would recommend to any Apple user. It's light, stylish, and is comfortable. I bought my keyboard yesterday and it works well especially when I'm gaming.

    Apple gets two thumbs up for this product!!!

    Great Invention

    • Written by from Elizabeth

    Thought I was buying this keyboard because I needed a numeric keypad for my new 17" MacBook Pro. The price was less than $20 more than a plain numeric keypad that didn't even do the job correctly. Took it back and bought this keyboard. I love it! I had no idea how convenient it would be for not just typing numerics, but sitting with my feet propped up, this keyboard on my lap typing away . It is incredibly light and easy to use. The touch is light and easy. It is worth every penny. I give it a 5 out of 5 rating.

    Superb!

    • Written by from Beaverton

    There aren't many products that earn a five star rating from me. But this keyboard is the exception. For me it has excellent feel which has improved my typing. Its low profile prevents my wrists from getting sore. And it's super easy to keep clean. I can understand how people with long finger nails may have difficulty with it, but my nails are trimmed short, so that's not an issue.

    Old ones are great, new ones are noisy!

    • Written by from Gilbert

    Sometime in 2009 Apple made a poor revision of this keyboard and the spacebar is really noisy! My wife bought one in September 2008 and it's awesome. I just purchased a Unibody MacBook Pro and picked up one of these keyboards, but the keys now feel different and the spacebar is super noisy! A side by side comparison to my wife's keyboard makes it very obvious. Too bad!

    Amazing

    • Written by from Las Cruces

    Amazing keyboard. So amazing in fact that I bought one to take to work to use on their PC's. The keyboard allows me to type a lot faster, and effortlessly. Going back to a regular keyboard is a pain. You realize how much better you can glide over the Apple "Flatboard" than you can with a conventional keyboard.

    It's ultra quiet, extremely solid, has the USB ports on either side (great for quick camera or flash drive connectivity) and best of all, it looks amazing. I get so many compliments at work on how cool it looks. I just hope they eventually come out with an illuminated version with black keys. Call it the "Flatboard Pro" if you will.

    No Problem...

    • Written by from North York

    Lots of people complain about the flatness of the keys, but it takes a day or so to adapt to it. If you used a laptop like I did before, it will be no problem at all. Unless your keys on your laptop were curved. Then it would take a day or so like I said.

    AWESOME - will speed up your typing

    • Written by from Baltimore

    I can type about 30% faster with this keyboard since the keys have such good response. It sucked for about a day then was awesome ever since. Don't go by the very first time you use it.

    Excellent keyboard

    • Written by from Plano

    I have had no difficulty at all adapting to the flat design. In fact, the keys have an ideal amount of sensitivity for me and typing is more comfortable than any other keyboard I have used in the last nineteen years.

    I am puzzled by many of the online complaints in this forum. I type by touch and view my monitor while typing, having being taught in high school to type on an IBM Typewriter. I wonder if a dependency on looking at the keyboard or not knowing how to type without looking at the keyboard poses problems for some of the dissatisfied buyers. From my experience, I can recommend the keyboard highly.

    The best keyboard I've every had

    • Written by from New York

    Looks a little funky but but it has the best typing experience. I've never been a fan of the standard keyboard keys. They've always been a bit flimsy. But this keyboard is incredible for typing. The keys are solid and don't press down too deep or bounce. It has a great tactile feel. I wish they would release the extended keyboard in the wireless version.

    Just a GREAT Keyboard!!!

    • Written by from huntington

    I was very hesitant on purchasing this keyboard, but after much personal debate...I got it. And I have to say that I AM EXTREMELY PLEASED!!! I mean it's only a keyboard but it works great and I have had none of the problems that have been listed. Maybe beginners luck. It started out without any problems and I happen to like the 2 USB ports. I plugged my mouse into it and off I went.
    If you're debating between this keyboard and another, you should really give this one a try. It's also very comfortable if you have Carpal Tunnel due to the low profile of the unit.
    Maybe a lttle pricey for a keyboard, BUT WORTH EVERY PENNY!

    I purchased the French keyboard and couldn't be happier with it. I had been accustomed to working directly on my laptop keyboard and was wondering if I'd handle the switch well... Have no fear, it rocks.
