    Small size good, missing keys bad

    • Written by from Bend

    I like Apple’s Wireless keyboard. It’s very compact and easy to use. Never had problems with Bluetooth connectivity or battery life.

    So why did I replace it with a Logitech wireless keyboard? Because what made the keyboard so compact is also what made it very inconvenient for me; the lack of a numeric keypad and other important keys like “Home”, “End”, “Delete”, and page keys.

    If you work with numbers and financial documents like I do, I recommend not getting this keyboard. Go with a full-size keyboard with all the useful keys.

    On a scale of 1 to 5 stars, I give the Apple Wireless keyboard only 2 stars. There are better keyboards out there for less money.

    The Space Saver

    • Written by from Anchorage

    Compared to my wired Razer Lycosa, the build quality, size, and overall aesthetics of the Apple Wireless Keyboard make it welcome on my desk any time! It paired with my custom built PC without a hitch and runs like a charm. It will take me awhile to get used to the slightly smaller key layout, though; It's approximately 3* smaller than the Lycosa.
    Overall, my desk looks cleaner and my fingers are happier! This is definitely a good buy!

    Wish it had an on/off switch

    • Written by from Morgan

    I love my Apple Keyboard, but there is a fatal mistake. I cannot put it in my bag, because the buttons get pushed which turns on the keyboard, which runs out the batteries, and sometimes turns iTunes which is really embarrassing in the middle of class, or a work meeting. I have a case, but it does not protect the keys from being pushed.

    Going back to wired

    • Written by from NEWPORT

    Very frustrated with the wireless keyboard and the separate numeric keyboard. Goes through batteries quickly, loses connection often and hard to get paired again. I also have the track pad and love it. For some reason, it has no problems, but constantly having problems with the keyboards. Also, it takes 10-15 seconds after striking the first key before the computer recognizes the keyboard. I like the feel and idea of bluetooth, but not worth the constant frustration.

    AWESOME!!!

    • Written by from bassett

    I got one of these with my iMac and I love it, I have never had a computer with wireless anything so the wireless was amazing to me, the keyboard looks really good as well and compared to most keyboards the sound of hitting keys is very low. The batteries last a long time as well, I got my iMac in June and just changed the batteries last month and i use the iMac every day for at least 2-3 hours.

    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.

    Love it but wish...

    • Written by from Gloucester

    I love my keyboard and have had it for a year. One tip though...don't put non-rechargable batteries in there after you have accidentally charged them. The chemicals inside the battery will ooze inside it hold. Other than that it is a lot of fun. Overtime there are some connection problems but it always connects after a couple of off and ons, but remember I have had this for a while. ANother tip...don't use the keyboard where there is no light or (if with an iMac) you will have to turn up the brightness and point it at the keyboard. (If with a iPad 2) Then forget typing. Turn on the light or you will have a painful time trying to guess where the keys are (unless you know it by heart). Apple needs to come out with a backlit keyboard. Lol. BUY THIS PRODUCT....I LOVE IT AND YOU WILL. WORKS WITH ANYTHING. 4stars haha 7 if possible! :)

    love the keyboard. it works beautifully. but it has a truly awful, toxic smell. i hope it will wear off. if anyone has solved this problem, i would love to hear how you did it. i tried contacting customer service, but the process was so long and cumbersome that i gave up.

    These are fabulous...and also serve as a remote shutter release!

    • Written by from Coral Gables

    I bought one of these for my iPhone, and it has been great for taking notes and replying to emails. I have also used it with my EeePC, which otherwise has a small keyboard. It works well for anything that communicates by Bluetooth. My wife loves hers for her new iPhone, and I'm about to order a third for my son, who has an iPhone and iPad. It works splendidly with either one.
    The keyboard is beautifully designed and runs for months on a pair of standard AA batteries. The on/off switch is unobtrusive and easy to access. Turning it off requires holding the switch for a few seconds until a small green light goes off, although it also can put itself to sleep.
    One of the great things I just discovered about the keyboard is that it can serve as a remote shutter release for the iPhone and iPad. When the Camera app is open, just press the F12 (volume up) key on the keyboard. It works from more than 20 feet away.

    where's the 10th star to rate this keyboard???

    • Written by from Calgary

    Oh my I cannot say enough good things about this keyboard I have had this for about 2 months now and the batteries still register at 100% (lithium)

    my magic track pad has had the batteries (charged/replaces 3 times already)

    only complaint from the old wired one is the keypad with the digital and math signs, it makes calculator a littler tougher to use highly recommends as a replacement for your iMac/Macbook or for your iPhone/iPad/iPod touch this is amazing

    Go Apple Go !!!

    Great product

    Very nice keyboard. It's very compact and the keys have a nice feel to them. Batteries lost quite awhile. It has a very modern look sitting on your desk, way better looking then the clunky black oversize pc keyboards. I only wish they built one with backlit keys.

    Great--but BATTERY HUNGRY!!!($)

    • Written by from St. Catharines

    This is a beautiful mouse--sleek, responsive...and wireless. Problem: It goes through batteries every couple of weeks. I am now trying to find something as comfortable, but unfortunately, w/ a wire. Even buying in bulk, I'll pay for a new mouse in no time w/ the money I save in not buying batteries. An environmental disaster...expensive...and frustrating when working on an important project. Never thought I'd give an Apple product a bad review. I hope I never have to again.

    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.

    Looks Ten, Types 3

    • Written by from Bloomington

    So this keyboard has a great look and feels like a laptop. This is not a good choice for doing a lot of typing as the keys are too close together and don't give enough feedback - either tactile or auditory - when you type. Useless for data entry. I thought Apple wanted to appeal to the business and scientific community. The separate aftermarket calculator has gotten only two stars.
    I made my own keyboard stand to put this keyboard in the proper angle and position to type with a wrist rest. Still not as good as some of the after market keyboards. Bluetooth can be buggy at times and depend on battery charge, USB less of a problem. If it came with an iMac, save it to use with your iPad, and buy an aftermarket wired keyboard if you do a lot of typing. I wouldn't buy it as a replacement keyboard.
    This is a case of form being subservient to function.

    Eats Batteries

    I love this keyboard, but I find that I am having to replace the batteries every 2 weeks. I'm looking for better alternatives (like rechargeable) but have not found it yet. Will keep using it, but not happy with the power drain.

    Perfect companion keyboard for iPad

    • Written by from Cambridge

    Along with Pages, this keyboard really expands the capabilities of the iPad. It saves you from having to find a computer when you want to type up a long e-mail or document. Keyboard is very light, comfortable, and it automatically powers down when not in use. Battery life has not been an issue. Note: I have not tried any of the third party keyboards that are integrated into the iPad case. Regardless, if I lost this keyboard tomorrow, I'd turn right around and buy a new one without a second thought.

    Battery Drainer

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    Every 2 days I've gotta use new batteries cause this keyboard drains the life out of them. Got rechargeable ones that go in one day. It also has a hard time connecting to blue tooth. The trackpad works better than this. Apple products just don't like me.
