    Good keyboard, missing some key buttons

    • Written by from Toledo

    Love the look of this keyboard, however there are a few buttons that are missing from it that, coming from a PC, I miss horribly.

    These buttons include: Home, End, Delete, (and less frequently) Page Up/Down

    Coming from a person that is used to PC's, these are hugely missed. It's much more convenient to be able to delete text backward AND forward, but unless you want to use a combination of keys, you can't do that (which decreases any ergonomics for the keyboard itself)

    It's exceptionally compact, which I do like quite a bit. They did scrimp and save a bit on the paint job, though, as it took a tumble off my couch and hit the trim on my wall and scraped the cheap silver paint clean off. It's an esthetic issue, honestly, but still an issue none-the-less.

    The battery on this thing is amazing. I've had it since September and use it nearly on a daily basis (though, admittedly, this Mac is connected to the TV, so it's not used AS much as the mouse). This being said the battery is at 75% and I've never had to change batteries yet. It's just nice not having to have a keyboard that needs charging every month.

    Back to a bit of bad - the ergonomics are just not there. There's only one position that the keyboard can be placed as there is not levers or height increase flaps. It's not a huge thing as I type on my lap, but if I were doing things professionally, this could be of concern to me.

    Like I said before this is connected to a TV, and so I don't do a bunch of this anyways, however you should be aware that they decided to get rid of the number pad to save space / make more compact. I don't miss it, but if you wanted this option then this would not be the keyboard for you. IIRC you *can* buy a num pad by itself, but that would need different batteries, and unless you're doing accounting, you're not going to need it.

    Surprising!

    • Written by from Monument

    This keyboard is of great quality, i've never used a wireless keyboard before and this keyboard is very exceptional. It works great when i play online games (like SCII: which require lots of quick key combinations) i never feel any lag between what i press and what happens.
    Any other wireless keyboard i use is going to have a lot to match up to.

    Lastly, i was having an issue when i pressed the space bar and when i let go the space kept going. As i panicked, the keyboard "lost connection" and then "connected" again. I was so surprised it had its own failsafe that i stopped what i was doing to write this review and share how awesome the keyboard is.

    Amazing.

    PLEASE MAKE A FULL SIZE WIRELESS KEYBOARD!

    • Written by from Port Richey

    Although this tiny model is a very nice keyboard, I REALLY miss the full size version with the numeric keypad. Please offer a full size wireless keyboard. I am tied to a corded model as I use my numeric keypad often. Also, please consider repositioning the up/down, left/right arrow keys. Have the up and down together, then the left/right together. The way they are spaced now with the down key located in the middle of the left/right is very annoying. You have to skip over the down key when you are using only your left & right. Looking forward to seeing a full size wireless keyboard. Thanks in advance.

    With the numeric keypad back, I would give it 5 stars.

    Awesome!

    • Written by from Missouri City

    This is the only kind of keyboard that actually increased my typing speed instead of decreasing it. There's no need to adjust or make any modifications. The battery life is great and I am getting spoiled by this! Using it on my iPad 2 is awesome and I no longer have to get used to typing on the touch screen or having the on-screen keyboard blocking my view! The only reason I gave this product 4 stars instead of 5 is because that I actually have to use batteries. It doesn't come with a recharger and I hope that in the future, apple will make a rechargeable one that easily recharges from a wall outlet or by usb.

    Keyboard

    • Written by from North Las Vegas

    I do like the keyboard. The main reason I got it is for school and to use it on my iPad, but I never really use it. I never bought any word or pages for my iPad, I do all of my reports on my computer, so it is useless almost to me. But I believe that it is a great keyboard.

    Great accessorry for an iPad

    • Written by from Manhasset

    I just purchased this in order to use it with my iPad, rather than having to clunk around on the ipad keyboard. So far, I really love this product. It's lightweight and the keystrokes respond nicely to my typing, infinitely better than having to email using the iPad keyboard. I bought the incase origami stand to go with it and the two work really well together. Now I can leave my laptop at home when I don't need to use excel, word or flash, which I'm verry happy about.

    It works, but not as comfortable as full size

    • Written by from new rochelle

    I got this wireless keyboard with my Imac. A friend bought an Imac a year earlier, and that one came with the extended (cabled) keyboard. The extended keyboard has dedicated numeric pad and seems somewhat wider and easier to type on. I've gotten used to the wireless version, but it doesn't seem as comfortable as a full keyboard. Also, the key 'throw' is short like all apple keyboards and that takes some getting used to. Overall it's ok. Battery life is very good. Perhaps six months or so. As for set-up, synching, etc., no worries there, either.

    Like it! Love it! Gotta have it!

    • Written by from surprise

    I loved my Apple Aluminum Wired Keyboard w/ Numeric Pad and I wasn't using the num pad much and I have small desk so I decided to get this. I love it as much as my wired, don't miss the num pad. It is perfect with my Magic Mouse. The only thing is it takes time to get used to the slightly altered spacing between a compact one like this and the one with the num pad. FIY this will work with Leopard, Apple just says it only works with SL and up cause they want you to shell out another $29 for the OS upgrade.
    Also Apple should make a wireless keyboard with the num pad like Pro one a few years back. Better yet, make the next iteration of keyboard with backlit keys!

    a little small

    • Written by from Bardon

    while the functionality of the keyboard is awesome, it's just a bit small. I'm probably going to buy the keyboard with the numeric keypad anyway.

    The new wireless keyboard is great, but i can surely say that the other part on the right (the numbers) was very useful, i miss it.. if theres any way to buy it, separately, i would! :)

    One of the best keyboards, hands down!

    • Written by

    This keyboard is probably the best keyboard that I have ever used. I am already a fast typer but the design of this keyboard makes typing even more effortless.

    The slight tilt is also helpful in allowing the typer to avoid wrist cramping/carpel tunnel syndrome (as opposed to the laptops).

    I find this keyboard to be compact and small, yet it still allows me to complete my tasks efficiently.

    Also, I like that it is uses bluetooth and is completely wireless, it doesn't take up any usb slots.

    Apple wireless keyboard

    • Written by from Ottawa

    I love my new Mac.(July 2011) That said, I am still learning how to do the things I used to do on my PC now on the MAC. One thing I would like to do is program the function keys. In some of the PREFERENCES you can customize the Fn keys; all of them to #19....the only problem I have now is that with the standard keyboard you only have 12 Fn keys so some of the standard ops in the PREFERENCES section are just not available to me. As with other reviewers i love the ability to type better on this keyboard than on my PC ones...if only the full size apple numeric keyboard came in a wireless version.......I'm thinking ahead now....

    Easiest setup EVER!

    • Written by from Arlington

    I just purchased the keyboard and I have to say, the setup time was the fastest and easiest setup of anything I have ever installed. Unlike the statement above says: "install on the computer first", you don't need to do that at all for the ipad2. It takes more time to get it out of the box then it does to set it up. Pull it out of the box, turn the power button on (on the right), turn bluetooth on in the utilities app and punch in the code it tells you to punch in. Boom. Done. I'll have to use it a while before I can give the product a 5 but it is so compact and clean. Anxious to see how long the batteries last.

    Battery Read Problem, Otherwise Great

    • Written by from chester

    This keyboard always shows low battery on my imac, even after I put fresh ones in. It can last for months on "low battery". Its an annoying pop-up every time I log in, but otherwise this keyboard is great. The keys are nicely spaced apart, so its very easy to type with. I high recommend going wireless to anyone willing two lose a number pad.

    Cool Keyboard

    • Written by from Palm Bay

    Works with my iphone, I also connected to my Vizio 3d TV with internet apps.
    It sure beats typing with the remote. Would have gave 5 stars if it had more keys like pgup and down.

    Great but ...

    • Written by from Scottsdale

    The keyboard is nice and works well. It makes typing on the iPad much easier. However, I worry about traveling with it. I kept the box to protect it while carrying in my briefcase or carry-on. But it would be nice to have some way to protect and attach to my iPad for transport. Of course, I probably should have bought a case with a built-in keyboard.
