    Watch out!

    • Written by from Regina

    I liked this keyboard a lot until the batteries corroded and fused the battery compartment shut. Apparently this is a common failing of AAs. The 'sleek' design is now working against me as there is no way to get it open. Had to buy a whole new keyboard!

    Great keyboard...until it inexplicably died

    • Written by from Lakewood

    I didn't use it that much and it worked great for a while but this morning, it inexplicably died. I've had it for less than a year.

    I'll be buying a cheaper bluetooth keyboard if this is what the reliability will be.

    Get your hands on it and you'll know that I'm not babbling. I would expect an upgrade, though, after 4 years.

    Its okay.

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    The keyboard is nice and most importanly is very compact. No questions - I love it. It has one downside: power switch. I mean you can turn it off and on, but the stupid keyboard turning on by itself while I am carrying it my backpack on the way to school, and the most terrible thing it turns Itunes on, so I walk like a boombox (tanks God Ipads are not that loud) till I notice.

    Functions great, but not durable.

    • Written by from Storrs

    I bought this keyboard about a month ago and I use it exclusively with my iPad. I carry it in my back pack in the laptop section of my bag. I've had to replace three keys already. I couldn't find a sturdy case for just the keyboard only while searching online, so I built a sturdy wooden box out of oak boards and lined the inside of the box with foam that I picked up at a craft store. I definitely recommend getting a case for this if you plan on carrying it around like I do. Otherwise, you'll be paying about $6 per every key that breaks.

    Needs backlit keys like the Mac laptops

    • Written by from Grande Prairie

    It's okay. No complaints from me about battery life or reliability. Nice weight and balance to it. The keys do seem to attract grime and dirt easily.
    Biggest problem is that it needs the awesome backlighting that most of the Mac laptops have. (I would happily sacrifice tons of battery life if that's what it takes.) The backlit keys of my MacBook Air are so awesome, yet when I hook it up to the TV and take this wireless keyboard to the couch I lose that great feature.

    Not energy efficient; Hard to clean keys

    • Written by from Miami Beach

    Negative - Uses a lot battery life; has problems pairing so you can be typing and no words all of a sudden;can't clean the keys easily - no pop off like other key boards - so if you snack or spill this isn't for you

    Pros - NIce looking, keys are soft to use, no wires

    Not convenient enough for the price

    • Written by from Wilkes Barre

    I bought an iPad to use during meetings and therefore bought the keyboard as a more convenient way to take notes, send emails, etc. While the keyboard works in theory, some of the main functions like CTRL+A do not work. I called Apple.com, assuming that there may be a problem with the keyboard and was informed that this is simple a incompatibility issue between the ipad and the keyboard. While i understand the issue at hand, i suppose the fact that they clearly offer this as a compatible accessory to the ipad 2, that it should be just that...fully compatible. Poor representation on their website. I would have bought a keyboard, but not for $70. $70 and 2 batteries should offer me full compatibility...not half way there.

    NOT WORTH THE PRICE OF ADMISSION

    • Written by from Decatur

    I have bought 3, YES THREE, of this product, and each time, one has failed me. The delete key breaks and stops working, the KB will go wacko and just unabatedly enter the same key without me touching a thing. And many others issues.

    I BOUGHT THREE OF THESE

    this must show it's a piece of junk. i like it's size and it's user-friendliness, and all the fancy aspects of it, but i have given up on it.

    Batteries get stuck!

    • Written by from Minneapolis

    Be careful not to leave your batteries in too long. They will get stuck inside with no chance of removal. Particularly Lithium AAs.

    Love it!

    • Written by from Portland

    I was looking for an external keyboard to improve ergonomics while using my MacBook Pro at my desk. I usually avoid wireless accessories because they are sometimes more trouble than they're worth, but this keyboard was tempting because I could also use it with an iPad or iPhone. I went ahead and ordered it, along with Apple's rechargeable AA batteries, and have been very happy with the decision.

    At my desk, the keyboard has a similar feel to the very nice built-in keyboard on the MacBook Pro. It looks great, is easy to move around and clean under, and one less cable is a plus after all. The battery charge lasts several weeks and when the battery dies it takes less than a minute to rotate in a new pair of rechargeables.

    But when I'm traveling the keyboard is really delightful. For many weekend trips I don't need my laptop, but I want to keep up with email. So I'll slip the ultra-thin keyboard in my overnight bag and pair it with my iPhone, which speeds up my email performance immensely.

    The only detail I don't like about this keyboard is that if I take the MacBook Pro away from my desk to another part of the house, the Bluetooth connection fades in and out and keeps flashing Connected / Disconnected messages on my screen. I finally got into the habit of turning off the keyboard when I leave the desk -- by holding down the power button for a few seconds -- and that cleared it up. It would have been better if this were automated somehow or configurable on the computer.

    But overall, I'm happy I tried this keyboard, and it's now an important part of my professional toolkit.
