    Defective x2

    • Written by from Claremont

    My wife bought this to run with her Powerbook. She wasn't able to link up with the computer and so did more hunting and found many people with the same complaint. Very frustrating. So I tried it with my iMac. It linked up fine and I actually love the feel of it. However, several letters in the upper right, like "P" and the dash, didn't work. Disappointing an an Apple product to find not one but two major problems. I think we'll be reluctant to risk trying another one since we found all the other negative reviews of the thing. Too bad as I liked the feel of it and the look of it.

    Not worth the materials its made from

    • Written by from Leduc

    This is the single worst keyboard i have ever owned, and i have own something out of the 80's with half the keys missing. It is an absolute nightmare to try and pair it with anything. Macbook says "Couldn't connect to device", iPhone doesn't even see it. got it to connect on my android tablet but it disconnected itself 5 seconds later. i really can't tell how it feels to type on it because it wouldn't pair with anything to save its life. I think I'm going to melt it down and make some sort of modern art piece.

    Fragile Keyboard

    • Written by from Alto

    Now on our third keyboard in less than 2 years with the iMac. Built to last just beyond the warranty. Bought a competitor keyboard and it works fine. Would not recommend this product to anyone.

    Function Keys Dont Work!!!

    • Written by from Miller Place

    I had to reset all my key functions when I installed this keyboard. The Dashboard Button (F4) was not opening the dashboard feature. and I can't get my Sound Function keys ( Pause, play, forward, reverse ) to work either. This keyboard would be a hundred times better if it had numeric keypad and also "backspace + delete" Keys. Not just one. I wish I had not spent my money on this keyboard. A lot of money for so little in return.

    wireless keyboard

    • Written by from Miami Lakes

    I bought it about a year ago and it stopped working about three months ago.
    I changed the batteries and checked the wireless connection; and it still isn't working.
    Currently, it's setting on my desk right now and I plan to take it back to the Mac store where I bought as soon as I get a moment to do so. What a bummer.

    Batteries corrode in the wireless keyboard ....can't open to replace

    • Written by from frankfort

    Second day of school.....8 o'clock at night..... And a paper needs to be written. No such luck !! The batteries in the wireless keyboard have apparently corroded inside the keyboard so badly that I can not open the battery door !! Funny.... I used the keyboard all day without a problem and without the computer giving me any notices that the batteries were low. Tried and tried to get the battery door open ......IMPOSSIBLE! Even got metal shaving slivers in my hand because the metal is so soft where the battery door opens.

    Too small and different size than my MacBook Air keyboard

    • Written by from PASADENA

    This wireless keyboard came with a new iMac 27" that I purchased recently. While I love the large screen for the iMac I am frustrated by the keyboard.

    I toggle between my MacBook Air when I am out of the office and my iMac when in the office. The keyboard causes me all sorts of problems.

    1) It is too small

    2) The keys feel like they are closer together on the wireless keyboard vs. the laptop, causing all sorts of problems

    3) The ergonomics required to use the keyboard are bad -- there is no place rest ones wrists as is the case with a laptop

    It seems that Apple does not make a wireless FULL SIZE keyboard so I may need to switch to a wired one.

    Sleek and beautiful but extremely awkward to use

    • Written by from Lake Grove

    I purchased this keyboard with my imac in December of 08 primarily because I liked the idea of a sleek wireless keyboard that could easily be stowed away underneath the screen. And it does indeed look slick and fit under the screen when you just want extra desk space. If I only wanted a keyboard that took up little space and matched the aesthetic of my imac, it would be perfect.

    But I also want a keyboard on which I actually enjoy typing--or at the very least, on which it is not continually uncomfortable and frustrating to type. And on that count, despite the many serious attempts I've made to adjust, this keyboard never feels good. The keys feel very hard and uncomfortable; the spacing is extremely cramped (and I have neither big hands nor thick fingers); even the angle of the keyboard feels too flat. Every time I type on it, I feel frustrated and cramped, I make far more mistakes than I do on normal keyboards, and my hands begin to hurt.

    Ultimately, though it annoyed me to have to mar the i-mac aesthetic, I purchased a wireless dell mouse and keyboard combo that matches the one I use at work (and which I always found far more natural to use than this one). Every once in a while, I'm tempted to take out this keyboard and give it another try, but within minutes, I remember why it's so uncomfortable and toss it back in my desk drawer. I'm continually amazed that apple pairs great computers with keyboards/mice less functional than those you'd find with any generic pc.

    Too difficult to use...

    • Written by from Etobicoke

    I wish I knew why apple does not make a full size wireless keyboard anymore. I had to return this as it is truly awful to use without the number pad. They really need to make a full sized wireless keyboard!

    Soft aluminum

    • Written by from Miami

    Very soft aluminum magnesium alloy material that is used for the keyboard frame makes it very susceptible to damage if dropped and rendering it useless especially in the area of the power button. Cool and sleek design at the cost of durability and reliability. I owned my keyboard for less than 24 hours before I found out how quickly I can waste $70

    Really a piece of garbage
    You will be terribly disappointed

    It seems impossible that this product is made by the same company that makes such fantastic computers, ipads, ipods etc

    Seriously?!

    • Written by from Watertown

    Alright, I was hoping they would have seen the error of their ways, but still no number pad?!? This product has its uses sure, but trying to work in a professional environment in any field pretty much requires a number pad's input.

    Cute, but virtually useless

    • Written by from CUPERTINO

    I’m a recent convert from the PC world. I purchased my first I-Mac yesterday. I love the machine as it allows me to be working in PC world while also in the Apple world using VM-Fusion. Unfortunately, the wireless keyboard included with the I-Mac is impossible to use for a touch typist.
    When buying an I-Mac, add a real keyboard if you intend to type anything.

    Unuseable. Once it un-pairs, you're done.

    • Written by from Boulder

    When it unpairs itself, there is absolutely nothing you can do to get it to re-pair. I've tried at least 30 different things listed in the Apple forums and nothing works. It used to work, now it's just a large paperweight.

    Too small - size does matter.

    • Written by from Buffalo

    I wish my new iMac had come with the mighty mouse and larger keyboard. The small keyboard is just too hard to work with. My command/option/control buttons are smaller and trying to design with shortcuts is a pain.

    Bad Keyboard for Handicapped People

    • Written by from Titusville

    Because this keyboard does NOT have the normal concave keys, it makes it extremely difficult for anybody with hand's issues, i.e., tremors, to use this keyboard. Apple obvisouly didn't keep Universal Access in mind when they designed ths keyboard.
    The normal "home" keys 'F' and 'J' keys do not have the pronounced dots / lines on them so it makes it even more difficult to maintain your finger tips on the home row.
    This keyboard is obviously designed for those who "chicken peck' type.
    I can type about 85 WPM on a regular 'IBM' style keyboard, but am lucky if I can reach 25 WPM on this keyboard.
    Also, because it's missing the normal number section to the right, it can't be used to navigate (page up, page down, etc., using the arrows on the typical number section. This makes it even more difficult for those with hand handicaps to use, because the magic mouse is too sensitive.

    Not a good keyboard at all

    • Written by from irvine

    The buttons feel horrible, they feel like they don't press when you press them, also my fingers slip off the keys when i'm working in photoshop holding multiple keys, and the arrow keys are so tiny they are a pain to press. I hate this keyboard, I love the older whit apple keyboard though.
