    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.

    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.

    Very nice product

    You can even hardly make it dirty, although it's all white. And it can work pretty will with iPad and my Lenovo laptop.

    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

    Wireless Keyboard battery life and keyboard length are issues to consider

    • Written by from Corral de Tierra

    I've owned my wireless keyboard about two years, changed batteries about 10 times, and never had an issue with pairing. It is always immediate. I like the low profle and tactile response. There are two flaws that for me are a problem. First, there is no numeric keypad. Second, the keyboard is too short. I like a longer keyboard because it has more mass and is more stable, and I can use it on my lap or an uneven surface. I also think the keyboard consumes too much power - batteries don't last nearly as long as I think they should.

    Great feel & key response but its too limited without the extended keyboard

    • Written by from Cleveland

    As usual, this is a quality made product from Apple and if this wireless keyboard was an extended keyboard I'd have given it 5 stars. If this was the size & layout of the USB extended keyboard that came with my iMac, I would love it. Bluetooth works great & no wires is a major plus. The feel and response of the keys is great too.

    Not having the extended keyboard, and the modification of the actions of the remaining keys isn't as efficient for me. I also have the wireless mouse but its the large wireless trackpad that I use the most along with a lot of key controls. I look for the fastest way to navigate through my computer, screens, apps & I use many keyboard actions in place of a mouse or trackpad control.

    Another major concern for me is that I also have an iPhone & iPad, along with other iMacs. This has me bouncing around between many keyboards. BTW, I LOVE my iPad & find myself using it far more often, and my iMac far less. I'll be installing Yosemite soon & suspect that the synchronization of my iMac, with my already synchronized iPhone & iPad will bring me back to my iMac more often.

    It should have a Number pad

    • Written by from Sparks

    The lack of a number pad on this keyboard extremely limits it's use for games. Small simple games can still be played with no problem, but many games want you to have a number pad. Also in an office setting a number pad is very useful when trying to use your computer's calculator app.
    It also eats up batteries very quickly and gives poor battery read out levels to your computer, all around I'd recommend a wired keyboard with a number pad. They are better in every way and should be cheaper too.
    I really recommend not getting this keyboard.

    In short I wish my computer came with a wired keyboard with a blasted number pad.

    Stop pairing

    • Written by from Boca Raton

    My keyboard suddenly stop pairing with my IMac. This is my second Apple Wireless, the first one also stop pairing. Apple makes great products but the Intelligent mouse and wireless keyboard are lousy to say the least. What a contradiction!!!!

    Apple Wireless Keyboard

    • Written by from Montreal

    First of all the design is great, and the low-profile keys are fantastic.
    Once you get used to these low-depth keys, you'll never want to return to the older high keys.

    Having said that, there are several issues to think about:

    1. Overpriced
    2. Keys wear out fast, so you'll need to replace then. 10 of mine have totally lost their letters ands characters
    3. I gave my friend my old keyboard and he didn't want to use it. He had trouble seeing the keys and would have wanted more
    contrast of the letters on the white base or even white letters on black bases.
    4. Check the serial numbers carefully. I purchased what I thought was an English keyboard, but waited too long to use it. When I
    connected it to my computer, it was French!!!!
    I couldn't return it to where I purchased it because 3 months was too long. The serial number for French and all writing on the box
    would have one think that one purchased an Englih one. Only one other sub serial number informs you on the box that this was
    French!!!

    Wireless keyboard useless

    • Written by from Birmingham

    Just got brand new mac at work 2 weeks ago. Wireless keyboard useless. Keeps loosing signal. When the signal drops the last key stroke is repeated until signal returns. Poor software coding can only cause this. Very bad when signal drops whilst pressing the back space key. You loose all your work. Funny really cos 3 other users not had a problem yet. Anyway need to change to one with numpad so will buy one with usb cable. New apple mouse will have to go also. Will get a wheel mouse. If I cannot get a true British English keyboard layout to work with correct @ key position I will be asking my director to swap it for the windows 7 cad PC. Still using my win Xp pro machine that still does what I want it to. Most important part of a PC is the mouse and keyboard.

    Made me ditch the remote.

    • Written by from Richmond

    Before i got my first truly modern Mac, I was using an iMac G5 followed by a white plastic Intel. Both of those had wired keyboards and I had to use the Apple Remote to control the iTunes when I'm not close in front of the machine. However, I bought a 2011 27" iMac used and it came with both the remote and this. I immediately found myself ditching the remote and doing everything remotely on the keyboard, whether it's controlling itunes, typing, or controlling the computer. And since it's not IR, it can be used anywhere in the range. The remote just sits there collecting dust right now… Also it seems to be very efficient or maybe it's the less use it gets because the mouse dies faster than the keyboard.

    corrosion

    • Written by from Hannover

    as many others I have the same problem that after a short period of storage, the batteries corroded and making it impossible to open or repair. Apparently there are no replacements from apple! This seams to be a serious issue and one should consider this before buying a keyboard and possibly risking 69 dollars.
