    Love Apple, Hate this Keyboard!

    • Written by from alexandria

    Nice design, poor functionality!

    This is the first Apple product that I seriously hate. Cannot regain connectivity after system loss. Going back to the wired keyboard!

    Garbage.

    • Written by from Oakland

    The batteries leaked and fused the cap. I tried everything trying to pry it open. Ultimately, it's going to be recycled. Waste of $70. This really should have been swapped out for a new one. Apple refuses to do anything about it. There are many posts on here, and ifixit about this issue.

    Another example of form over function from Apple.

    on 2nd keyboard - DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY

    • Written by from ONEIDA

    I'm on my second keyboard now and they are great while they last, but both of them had the same issue within 6 months of purchase. They continually disconnect from the host Mac. I have found MANY blogs on this exact issue and followed all of the "fixes" without any success for either keyboard. I figured I had a lemon with the first one, but obviously it is a product issue. Don't waste your money...

    This keyboard is not worth the money

    • Written by from Hudson's Hope

    It cuts in and out all the time. Makes it very difficult to type anything of any length. It eats batteries. 6 sets in 4 months.

    So its wireless and you can type on it but...

    • Written by from Reno

    The wireless design and ultra-minimalist look are great. The problem in my opinion is that function and ergonomics were given a backseat or no consideration at all and the design and aesthetics of the keyboard was the only consideration. There is no way to adjust the tilt of the keyboard in the back, nothing to rest your wrists on, and the numerical keypad was removed for some odd reason I don't understand. So get this keyboard if you want sore wrists and want to find and pick at the linear numbers in a QWERTY way. There is the wired keyboard with the 10-key numerical keypad, yet it solves the 10 key problem by creating another problem. That keyboard also has no place to put your wrists either. With that said, if you have a high end retail store or salon/spa and only need to type in a name and address at a time, and being ultra-chic is the priority, this is the keyboard for you. Not a keyboard for a serious keyboardist.

    Rediculous

    • Written by from Tulsa

    Received one of these keyboards with my 47 inch iMac yesterday. Jonathan Ive needs to get serious about designing a keyboard for people who actually use keyboards.

    I'll be looking around the net for a substitute.

    Cool looking, but uncomfortable

    • Written by from Cambridge

    It's nice that the design and top-row function buttons mimic my macbook, and I like the wireless feature. But I don't recommend this for an everyday keyboard. It's totally the opposite of ergonomically friendly, as is the magic trackpad. I have both at my office and both are causing use-related stiffness and pain (9-5, M-F use, with macbook usage outside of those hours/days). I would prefer that my desktop keyboard be more comfortable than my laptop keyboard, but that is not the case. I wish Apple would offer more ergonomically friendly products.

    Keyboard and mouse are horrible

    • Written by from Tempe

    The key board and mouse that came with my iMac are absolutely the worst keyboard and mouse I have ever used. They need to go back to the drawing board with these two items.

    Poor layout, some keys gone missing

    • Written by from pasadena

    This keyboard has only one Control key and that key is narrow and not in the lower-left corner. This makes editing in Emacs cumbersome.

    There are no page up/down keys. To scroll a text window by one page, one must hold the "fn" key and tap the up or down arrow key. This cannot be done with one hand, which makes it an accessibility issue.

    Keyboard always disconnects

    • Written by from Durham

    This keyboard for use with an iPad 2 is TERRIBLE! It will allow me to type in one note and then it it will not type anymore. I really hope I received a defective model because this is ridiculous. If I want to use the keyboard, I have to go through and "re-pair" the keyboard all ovr, for maybe one note/message again before it peters out. Awful job Apple, AWFUL! I wish I could give it no stars.

    Don't waste your money

    • Written by from Mission Viejo

    On start up, my iMAC frequently can not find the apple wireless keyboard that is turned on and has been paired with this computer. After a couple of minutes, the iMAC recognizes the keyboard but cannot pair with it. This can go on for 15 minutes or more. When your computer is password protected, this is a major problem. Changing the batteries in the keyboard doesn't help. Turning the keyboard off and on again doesn't help. Restarting the computer doesn't help. I bought the computer in October and this has been a continuing problem. I hate the wireless keyboard!

    Undersized, unreliable

    • Written by from Berkeley

    The key spacing is about 90% of a standard keyboard --- it makes my hands hurt to use it all day. (I'm a programmer, so I spend a lot of the day typing.) I've also had two of them fail within a year (in both cases, an entire row of keys stopped working). They can't take heavy use.

    standard wireless keyboard

    This small keyboard is HORRIBLE. If you pay over $2200 for a computer you should get an adult sized keyboard! The keys stick and apple sells NO replacements! They missed the boat on this one totally!

    Wireless keyboard

    • Written by from Round Rock

    For the love of Pete, will you give us a wireless keyboard with a numeric keypad? This product is for a desktop and I do not want or need a lap keyboard for my desktop. I need a fully functional wireless keyboard, not a toy.

    ANOYING

    • Written by from Ludlow

    This keyboard out of the box was so uneven. Typing long papers is a nightmare. It would rock back and forth with every key typed. I tried bending it to stay even but no luck. Thinking about buying a Logitech its so bad.

    Doesn't work!

    • Written by from Palo Alto

    I just bought this wireless keyboard and it literally does't work. I've tried connecting it with 3 apple computers already and none of them could even detect the keyboard. I have also tried changing the batteries multiple times! I was looking forward to using this nice 70 dollar keyboard but too bad I doesn't work.

    If You Love Headaches, You'll Love This Product!

    • Written by from Seattle

    What The Pho is going on over at Apple?

    How did this silly thing get a green flag for mainstream? I absolutely HATE it! But its nice to look at.

    If you use your computer for anything important, the wireless keyboard and mouse is going to drive you nuts.

    This is how it goes:
    Your working on big project, your on a roll, being productive and BLAM! all of a sudden you can't type any more words! You realize the keyboard just went dead. Now what? You probably don't keep a fresh supply of batteries around the house so you go scrimmaging for batteries and pull em out of whatever you can find them in - the tv remote, your little brothers toys, your aunties dresser drawer. If all those are a no-go, then its off to the store.

    When i'm motivated and on a roll the last thing i want is an interruption, especially by something like this.

    I'm dumbfounded that they didn't include rechargeable something in these things and provide a usb cable, so when the battery goes dead, you simply plug the usb cable in the computer and continue to work while it charges.

    C'mon now Apple, i thought you guys were smarter than this. I even kinda thought you guys were "Green".

    Oh and pairing these over bluetooth and getting the machine to find and "recognize" it is another headache in itself.

    My advice: If you love headaches, you'll love this product, otherwise don't buy it.

    Batteries stuck. Wrists dead

    • Written by from Williamsburg

    I wish this product was as good as I expect of Apple. The angle is a huge pain (literally) because my wrists are flexing just to type.
    And the batteries got stuck! I had to try to pry it out, but the final battery was impossible. I put some new batteries in as I could and the top row of keys stopped responding completely. When I lose connection I have to restart my Mac.

    I seriously can't believe this is an Apple product, and that I paid so much for this.
