    Great keyboard, needs a case!

    • Written by from Camrose

    I like this keyboard, it's light, compact and works really well. Problem is, I have to take it to school, in a backpack filled with textbooks and stuff, so the I am afraid that the keys are going to get messed up, anybody know where I can get a case for it? I have looked at various retail stores, and online and got nothing.

    Wireless Keyboard

    • Written by from Woodstock

    Cons:
    I keep typing in the wrong place.
    Hands feel cramped.
    No stand-alone forward delete key.
    Pros:
    No set-up required. Worked right out of the box in typical Mac style.
    Great size without the numeric extension.

    This will be great for traveling with my laptop but I am going to order a standard keyboard for home use.

    Could be better

    • Written by from Cayce

    I was dissapointed with the keboard for not having the extra numbers on the key pad which is great for entering in numbered information. I love it with my iPad for typing but went back to the extended keyboard for my Mac Pro

    Short lived

    • Written by from San Francisco

    I have had my wireless keyboard for 2 years. Throughout this time it would mysteriously cut out, act weird. I would change batteries quite often and the power/light button failed so I never knew if I was wasting batteries or not. I liked the slim design and the angle, but, I expected it to last longer than it did. I did spill something on it and took it into the Apple Store. The guy popped off the space bar, which was stuck and told me to clean it out. Well, guess what!? It could not be put back together again and was totally broken after that. I was careful, but, I guess not clever enough. I have a terrible time typing on the MacBookPro keypad. I even have a wireless mouse, I do not like the pad. I bought a large monitor because I cannot see well with the existing screen. I love my MacBookPro, I love mac products, but, I do not like having to spend extra money to make my computer operate in the style to my liking. It is like spending $500 for a new set of pots and pans and needing heat proof handles for each pan at another $100 so you don’t burn yourself. It’s so expensive already, why not just make the unit livable from the start. So after two years: 2 mice; 2 keyboards wow

    Prefer wired over wiresless

    • Written by from Milton

    I have both the combination keyboard dock and the wireless. I much prefer the keyboard dock combo. The wireless keyboard has to be synced each time you turn off wi fi.

    Great Keyboard if only you could "send" from it

    • Written by from Lafayette

    The keyboard is fantastic, light, east to pack and easy to use. The only issue....they need to make a case to carry it in for briefcase etc. A case that carried Ipad, KeyBoard and power supply would be even better.

    Other and more significant issues- you cant send or delete email from the board, you have to work back and forth between board and Ipad.

    What a difference a keypad would make!

    • Written by from Barrô AGD

    This wireless keyboard works very well and your fingers will love the touch, but... the lack of a numeric keypad is a serious miss if, like me, you do a lot of number keystrokes.

    Case that protects the power button

    • Written by from Denistone

    Firstly, this is an excellent keyboard. I'm a very fast touch typist (I can keep up with most words in a typical lecture) and it is a pleasure to type on. I use my keyboard to take seminar, meeting, lecture, etc. notes using Pages on either my iPhone or iPad and with the keyboard. Other times I use they screen keyboard on the iPhone/iPad, so don't use the keyboard all the time. When I don't use it, I power it off. And this is why I'm giving the keyboard only 3,not 5 stars. When I carry the keyboard in my bag, in a soft case, the insanely sensitive power button gets bumped which turns on the keyboard, and keys then get bumped which has random, undesirable effects (like blasting music at inappropriate times) on whichever one of my devices it happens to pair to. I have not yet seen a good case that protects the power button. All available cases are soft and are open on the sides. I really wish someone would make a simple, inflexible plastic box that the keyboard fits in nicely. The cardboard box the keyboard came in has been my saviour so far - but how long will it last? Tupperware people - are you reading this????

    The keyboard itself is fine, however

    • Written by from Monroe

    I find the battery compartment lacking. In the case of corroded batteries, which I have experienced due to only mild use of the keyboard, they are impossible to remove, as the keyboard only has a small circular opening, and a one-entrance chute in which to deposit the batteries. It would be nice if the battery cover was more helpful in situations like this.

    Basic typing only, bluetooth power hog

    • Written by from Honolulu

    This keyboard syncs easily with my iPad but it's a power hog. Keys spaced nicely, not cramped. Unable to use escape, tab, and arrow keys. Too bad--it would've been a great keyboard if it did. People have said they could use it with their iPhone4 , but it doesn't sync with mine. I'm running iOS 4.0.2.

    Keyboard has No Working iPad Navigation Keys

    • Written by from Honolulu

    I am using the wireless keyboard to type this review on my iPad. It works--for typing.

    However, the most used function keys don't work. First, the keyboard has no home key or equivalent. Consequently, you must reach over and push the home button on your iPad. Second, the arrow keys do not scroll web pages. Also, there are no shortcut keys to toggle between applications.

    Basically, the keyboard has no working iPad navigation keys. My expectation was this this Apple keyboard would be fully compatible with the latest iPad. It is not.

    Battery Leaks

    • Written by from SAINT PETERSBURG

    Not only did the battery leak, it froze the cap shut so I had to throw away the whole keyboard. That is not being environmentally friendly!

    Quality item, effective, functional. - Much Style.

    • Written by from Kingwood

    IThe keyboard is functional and aesthetically pleasing; however, I find that I prefer the wired, extended version of the keyboard.

    The unit is well engineered.

    Good, but with fatal flaw

    • Written by from Olathe

    It works exactly how I would expect an apple keyboard to work. It just does. However, there's a fatal flaw in the design. Because it's weight distribution is a little awkward, it's possible to drop this thing. If you happen to drop it on the end where the power button is, you'll make it impossible to push the power button. Mine became useless after just a week. This is the kind of device that you would expect to be dropped occasionally. It merely fell off the couch. It's ridiculous that dropping it less than 2 feet could ruin it like that. After some major surgery, it works again, but it's a bit ugly now. If you have tile floors where you plan to use your keyboard, don't buy this one. Apple, please move the power button to a safer place.

    Keyboard for Designers?

    • Written by from Port Melbourne

    If you are a Graphic Designer and you enjoy the odd keyboard shortcut this keyboard isn't really for you. I like to set up Character Styles in Indesign with shortcuts. You cannot set up shortcuts with this keyboard. Good luck editing a 30 page document with no character style shortcuts.

    I'm off to buy the old plug in keyboard to use for any design work.

    No 10-key!

    • Written by from Livonia

    This keyboard would get five stars if it just had a 10-key. I find it hard to believe that Apple can't make a wireless keyboard with a numeric keypad. Or maybe it's not can't, it's just won't, in which case, that's ridiculous.

    • Written by from Hamilton

    The keyboard is conveniently small, but it sacrifices usability. Bottom line - if you prefer form over function, this keyboard is for you.
