    At least you’ll have .03 cents worth of scrap aluminum

    • Written by from Shingletown

    Are you looking for a keyboard that will last about a year and look great doing it? If so this keyboard is for you. I’m now on my second one and it always loses the connection with my iMac and has been displaying random battery messages yet the batteries are new Duracells.

    Keys stopped working

    • Written by from Washington

    One year and 2 weeks after purchasing this keyboard with a new 21" iMac several keys just stopped working, rendering it useless. I checked online and this seems to be a fairly common problem. I've been a Dell user for over a decade and last year switched to a Mac based on rave reviews from friends. So far I've been unimpressed. Six weeks after purchasing the iMac the hard drive failed. Now the keyboard has failed. I don't know what will fail next, but this is becoming the most expensive computer I've ever owned......and not because of the quality.

    Heels for fingers, looks sexy but painful

    • Written by from Toronto

    Going to keep it short as possible,

    Like with all Apple products, they all look very sexy and attractive like women in heels however it comes at a cost, and that cost is that it is painful (literally), all of apple's keyboards both on their desktop and laptops are incredibly flat. For me and a few other people apple users out there, A little too Flat, that its caused some pretty stiff and intense Repeitive Stress Injuries (RSI) in my hands and fingers

    If you value comfort over form switch to another keyboard, some thats not so flat, and more ergonomic, personally i like the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic 4000 keyboard. Plugs in via USB, and all the keys are there and work. However if your going to tough be prepared to see a occupational injury physio therapist.


    Summery
    Beautiful but lethal on fingers
    Try it before you buy it, the pain does not appear right away. for me it came up 2-3 days of use after i started on it.

    wireless keyboard

    • Written by from Houma

    I was very, very disappointed in the quality of the wireless keyboard that came with my new iMac. It is too small and too lightweight, it is difficult to type on because the keys are too smooth and flat. Also, the mouse was too small to feel adequate in my hand.

    So......I had to go out and buy a Microsoft wireless keyboard - that had the number pad on the right as Apple deleted that - and a wireless mouse.

    And now some of the functions don't work with the iMac even though the model I bought is supposed to be compatible with the iMac.

    Just really, really disappointed in Apple putting such a cheap keyboard & mouse with such a fine desk top computer.

    Terrible Product

    • Written by from Woodland Hills

    Apple has a real problem with their product quality. This is the second keyboard I've bought in the past two years. In fairness the first lasted for almost a year. The second didn't make three months before it would not connect. I'll have to try a third party one.

    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!
