    Going wrong after less than a month

    • Written by from Whitehouse

    Keyboard feels solid with nice low profile keys. Two USB connectors on the underside. BUT, I've had this keyboard just under a month, and the 7,8,9, and - keys on the keypad are no longer working.
    Between this and my MBP, I'm having serious concerns about Apple quality control. Going to opt for returning this one rather than replacing it.

    Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad

    • Written by from PORT COLBORNE

    I bought this keyboard in early january of this year along with a monitor and mouse for my macbook pro. I opted into the wired model because I didn't need the range of the wireless one, and the number pad at the side is a nice addition for a student. I was skeptical as to weather or not I was going to like the keyboard, and it turned out to be an incredible investment. In my experience, the keys have just enough resistance to give a solid, undeniable "click" when pressed, but not so much as to make typing a chore. The inclusion of the OSX keys nested along with the function keys along the top is an invaluable feature in my opinion. I do have a few complaints however; first off, the key board is not backlit, which while it would be a nice feature, can be compensated for by turning a light on. Second, the builtin USB ports haven't had enough juice to operate anything I own, besides my iPod shuffle. Finally, the keys (being the white matte plastic) get dirty, I have never eaten at the keyboard, and all the keys are getting to the point where they wont come completely clean anymore. All in all, however, it is a nice keyboard

    "o" key broke after 1 year

    • Written by from Winchester

    After having bought this keyboard the o key stopped working shortly after a year from purchase.

    It also arrived bent near the escape corner from its delivery. Too much money for a keyboard that's only lasted one year!

    What a miserable piece!

    • Written by from los angeles

    On my former PC, I had a Logitech keyboard that outlasted 2 computers -- six years! this miserable keyboard died after 9 months. NEVER wet or abused.

    I could not get into my iMac after restarting! Why? regardless of the state of the caps lock key, it was feeding ALL CAPS -- all the time. Whichg does NOT work with my all lower case master password.

    So I was DOWN!

    get something -- anything else!!

    Pourous Material attracts dirt...

    • Written by from Idyllwild

    I recently had to replace my apple numeric wired keyboard due to my space bar being bad. It's OK though...it lasted a good long time. My new keyboard has a different material that the keys are made out of. It's kind of gritty or porous and it gets dirty really fast. I have to clean it every couple days. The good news is I read somewhere the best way to clean a keyboard was with a "magic eraser" and it's true...it works great. But the keyboard still gets really dirty way too fast. I hope Apple will consider going back to the glossy material they used to use.

    Unbelievable

    • Written by from Portland

    I cannot believe that this Apple keyboard gets a five-star rating. I have to order my THIRD keyboard today because they keep crapping out on me. One key goes out and I'm told, "Nope, can't fix it." Wow. They seem to be very cheaply built so it's no wonder they don't last. I think this last one may have lasted 2 years, maybe a little more. Yuk.

    No BACKLIT >_<

    • Written by from Manhattan

    Could've rated 5 stars, but minus 1 star for no LED backlit, 1 more for the price (as for every other Apple accessory) =='' On the good side, i gave 3 stars for the thinness/design (still the best keyboard by far), usability (num keys for gaming + usb ports for charging my iPhone and gaming controllers), and compatibility (PC, even PS4)

    Breaks just after your warranty ends

    • Written by from Singapore

    I've bought this keyboard twice, and with both purchases, they've worked tremendously well, the best keyboard i've ever used. Unfortunately, it spoils just after a year of purchase, at least it did for me twice. Particularly the bottom left keys become unresponsive. Overall a great keyboard, but be willing to pay for a new one every year. I know I will be.

    Make a backlit iMac keyboard please!!!

    • Written by from Rockledge

    I have both the new iMac keyboard and the wireless keyboard. Both are superb quality, but I have to wish that Apple had made the wired version backlit like the Mac laptops. My wife's new Mac Pro Air is terrific, and the keyboard is so much nicer to use in dimmed lighting (such as you might use when gaming on your iMac.) Please take this as a suggestion, and not as a complaint--this is the best keyboard I've had in thirty years.

    Good but I wanted a black-key version

    • Written by from Campina Grande

    I wonder if Apple would launch a black-keys version of this awesome keyboard... One thing I don't like on the one with white keys is that the keys eventually get dirty. I have a Macbook Pro Retina and its black keys are just what I would like in a keyboard. Please Apple, give us a black-keys keyboard!

    Fantastic Keyboard

    • Written by from Fort Erie

    I have used a lot of keyboards, and I have to say this is by far the best and most comfortable keyboard that I've ever used. the only way I could see Apple improve it is by making it backlit like their MacBook Keyboards. Great job Apple.

    Just had my second one of these die 12 months and one week after purchase

    • Written by from Clontarf

    I've bought two of these. The keyboard looks great but we just had the second one die. Still looks new but has stopped working. Very annoying, particularly as I bought the wired one so I wouldn't have a hassle with batteries running out. The batteries in the wireless probably would have lasted longer than this keyboard.
    Will now check legal rights and see if Apple will replace or repair.

    Our 2nd Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad

    • Written by from Toronto

    This is an excellent keyboard. Its designed really well, built to last. We have 2 of these keyboards, and use them with our Mac Mini's. The keyboard is compact, and has to USB ports at the bottom. They don't take up much space and the keys feel great.
    Love them!

    Keep a good keyboard around

    • Written by from SIDNEY

    This lasted almost 3 years. I have an old keyboard from the G5 that still works fine. Granted it does not look as good, but still works; which is more than I can say for the new one. If the new one would have lasted three years I would have given it three stars.

    Low durability

    • Written by from Somerville

    Owned this keyboard for three years without issue, until recently when I had my first accident. It's a great keyboard, but never in my life have I had so much trouble keeping a keyboard clean. This keyboard is impossible to clean without destroying it. Keyboards are supposed to be able to handle abuse of all kinds, from crumbs, sticky fingers, and the occasional coffee spill. Don't get me wrong, I love this keyboard, but I was very unhappy that after three years, I accidentally spilled a bit of coffee onto the edge, and the keyboard was permanently broken. All cleaning efforts failed tremendously.

    At this point, I would upgrade to the Bluetooth keyboard, but it's lack of a numeric pad is a deal-breaker.

    in the end, this is great keyboard that looks nice and fits the aesthetic of the Mac line. Just don't dare ever have an accident with a nearby drink.

    I LOVE THIS KEYBOARD!

    • Written by from Denver

    People please, buy this frickin keyboard! It's the frickin best one I have ever used! I bought the wired keyboard over the Magic Keyboard for 3 reasons. 1: It's #20 cheaper than the Magic Keyboard. 2: It has that numeric pad. 3: It has a USB 2.0 port on each side. It also works with Windows, although some special Mac keys (such as brightness adjustment) might not work. To anyone with a Mac Pro, iMac, MacBook, or even a Windows desktop or laptop, I recommend this keyboard!!!!

    I've been working on my Mac Pro with a Windows keyboard, and finally switched over - what a nice change.
    Not only are my function keys matching my macbook keyboard now, but the usb ports on the keyboard is a handy feature too.
    Very happy with this purchase.

    The Best Keyboard

    • Written by from Wentzville

    The Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad is the best keyboard I have ever used. It is very comfortable to type on due to its slightly angled profile and separated keys. Additionally, this keyboard is one of the best looking keyboards on the market—almost unrealistically thin and light, and made from gorgeous bead-blasted aluminum.
