    Poor Quality

    • Written by from Mayer

    This keyboard came with the my second iMac purchase 12/2009. I have a key that is popping out. I have just ordered another but the non wireless that has the number key pad that I missed. The last iMac was wireless with a number pad and was made with quality. When they have a good product they seem to find a way to change it to cut weight and cost.

    Not bad.

    Lightweight, long battery life. But little wrist support.

    Good enough.

    • Written by from Villanova

    I've had this keyboard for a good 2 years, but this year, the lower row (zxcvbnm) just stopped working. I don't know what happened, but it was something with the cables inside. I didn't want to take it to the Apple Store to get it fixed cause that would just be more money. Instead, I got another wireless Mac keyboard, but it was a full-size (with the num. pad) solar powered Logitech one for $10 less than the smaller Apple one which works like a charm.
    SO yeah, I would only get this keyboard if you bought an Apple computer that came with it like my iMac, otherwise you can get a better less expensive one. It's still not bad.

    Could be better

    • Written by from Long Beach

    Yes I bought my Apple Wireless Keyboard around two months ago, and i really like it for being a bluetooth board. The only down fall to this board is the fact that it does not come with the numeric key pad like a regular full size board. So i am force to give it a three stars since Apple only put half the effort into creating what would be a great wireless board.

    Great when it works, impossible to fix!

    • Written by from Baldwin

    I got this with my iMac so I could keep my keyboard in my lap when I wanted. Worked great for 2 years, and probably would have lived much longer. Because of the closed body design, when I got a few drops of water on the keys, I couldn't get it to dry properly. The 7 key stopped working even after a month of drying and the Q key stopped working later. Can't open it up to wipe the inside, which would probably save this $70 keyboard.

    Switched to a "spill-proof" Microsoft keyboard instead...

    Great if you're cramped for space

    • Written by from Portland

    This keyboard is sleek and responsive. The wireless feature is nice. But I have a new 27" iMac and it is hard to work on a keyboard the size of your laptop keyboard when you are used to a full size one. Keys are too close together. I'm not a big person, but I feel like I'm playing with a kids toy on it. I've had Macs for years and I was a bit disappointed with this tiny thing.

    Not as good as wired one...

    • Written by from Reading

    I do not like this keyboard very much. It seems the keys were crammed in and it is harder to type. I like the wired keyboard more, especially since it has the numeric keys. I wish you made the wired one, wireless.

    Love the keyboard, but would like to see a USB Port in the future

    • Written by from Songpa-Gu

    I love this keyboard, its light, simple and beautiful. But doesn't have a usb port or a thunderbolt port. I use to have a usb wired-keyboard with a usb port directly on the keyboard. It was very convenient, especially if you go through a lot of usb drives. I would like to see that again on a wireless keyboard. ^^

    I understand that the keyboard is using bluetooth technology to connect wirelessly, and that usb 3 speeds are much higher than bluetooth, so there may be some technology issues. But i think it can be done in the near future.

    Caps Lock...

    • Written by from Mukilteo

    Overall the key board is pretty good. The only problem I have noticed is that the Caps Lock Key is a little harder to push than all the other keys. It's kind of annoying. Also the light that indicates if the caps lock is on or not sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. I've had my keyboard replaced and got a new one and it still does the same thing. Nothing too big. Just minor. Doesn't affect the performance of the keyboard.

    Cool Design - Poor Construction

    • Written by from San Antonio

    I bought my IMac about 6 months ago... 3 of the keys on the wireless keyboard that came with it have either stuck or just don't work anymore. Also hate not having a numeric keypad.... don't Mac users type numbers???
    Have thought of buying a wired keyboard with the numeric pad, but am afraid the construction won't be any better.

    I have started using a wireless (USB) Microsoft keyboard that works great... but would really rather be using a Mac product with my Mac computer. After years of using PCs and buying a Mac for both its OS and its reputation for quality, I am really disappointed in this keyboard.

    Style over substance? Absolutely!

    • Written by from wassat

    The 'wafer thin' keyboard takes up very little space on my desk, which is a shame as I have a large desk to accommodate the 27" monitor that came with it. (It's not like I'm short of space...)

    Note: This is my first mac and therefore my first experience with a mac keyboard.

    - It is too small; as a touch typist I get cramped hands from trying to type on it
    - The keyboard layout is bizarre and I can only assume this is some kind of apple "standard", there are also keys missing which I have seen on the fullsize+numeric apple keyboards, this is very annoying as you then have to look up certain keys on the web
    - It has no USB ports so I still have to have a cable hanging out the back of the screen anyway
    - The typing action for touch typists is still nowhere near as good as a 'proper' keyboard

    Why doesn't someone just make a white/silver, wireless ergonomic keyboard?

    Is it really so difficult?

    No delete key, only a mislabeled backspace key

    • Written by from Shepherdstown

    Since I do a lot of writing, I really miss the delete key. Using my iMac feels like typing on my old Underwood portable. I called customer service for assistance in finding the keystroke combination for deleting forward, but there is none.

    This wireless keyboard is handy for a household with two users, one of whom likes to put the keyboard on top of the computer desk and one of whom likes to use the little pull-out shelf below. If the extended keyboard came in a wireless version, I'd buy it.

    Great while it lasted

    • Written by from Sharon

    I got this keyboard about a year and a half ago and it was just fantastic, I bought it for my macbook so i could type while using my mac like a desktop computer. Unfortunately, recently, the batteries exploded in my keyboard rendering it useless. I tried to get the batteries out and got the first 3 but the last one is still stuck and I tried everything but now all I have is a dead $ 70 keyboard. This is a great keyboard but if you're buying it, be prepared to take very good care of it.

    No Forward Delete Key!!!

    • Written by from RIDGEFIELD

    Come-on guys. Can't believe you made this without a forward delete key...just like my MacBook which is completely aggravating. PC converts will be convinced they bought a defective keyboard - and they did!

    Why bluetooth??? (drains batteries)

    • Written by from fishers

    Apple has always had always had awesome keyboards sleek up-to date (looking almost futuristic). But yes its aluminum and yes it's sleek... But bluetooth?

    The good-
    Fits awesome beside a mouse, it has a almost a fully loaded control, batteries last most of the time if you are not a big typer, It removes the little usb connector from the computer for the normal wireless key boards come with.

    The bad-
    Bluetooth, WHY? it just makes it not really user friendly when trying to connect to the iPad or iMac or any other mac that is bluetooth ready (DOES NOT WORK ON ANY WINDOWS COMPUTERS). You also loose 2 usb ports that are on the non wireless keyboards, also takes a-little bit to connect, but 2 batteries just raises the keyboard WAY more than necessary, Increased weight to be what it is.

    Finally--- the way that Apple make products is amazing but this one was more like a hit then miss.Because you need a big screen to see what your typing when it is on you lap and you are far away, and then yes it is thin and lite but i don't really enjoy it as much as my numeric pad keyboard even though they both feel great while typing.
