    This keyboard doesnt work

    I just brought this keyboard today because I wanted the number keys on the side. It was working just fine then i was typing and all of a sudden it started typing one symbol and wouldnt stop i unplugged it and plugged it back in and it was still doing it. So i plugged my bluetooth one back in. If you want the numeric pad i would do what i am going to do tomorrow and that is just buy one that is by it self. You can buy a numeric keypad that is by itself for like 10.00 from target.

    AppF Keys

    i wish it had the separation between the Function Keys. Otherwise it feels great.

    This keyboard stinks

    I've had it for ages but still haven't gotten used to it. Less accurate than iPhone touchpad. It regularly skips keystrokes making it necessary to go back and clean up everything I type. Good looks don't make up for poor functionality.

    Apple keyboard

    This keyboard looks stylish and sleek to behold. The main problem arises once you start typing words. Many letters get skipped and some of the keys need some extra pressure to register while typing. This looks great but poor performance.

    What happened to full sized wireless?

    When I was at the Apple store today, I was puzzled by what I saw. A full sized wired keyboard. or a smaller wireless keyboard. I definitely do prefer the full sized keyboard since I do need the wireless option because my main computer is hooked up to a 65" screen in my room, not on a desk. I can't really work with a smaller keyboard, so I went with this. I really do need a wireless version of this fully extended keyboard, but otherwise this works fine and it great with all of its crisp clean strokes. It looks better than any other keyboard that I have used, and matches right up with my magic mouse. Glad it's not cheap plastic, full metal. Although it could have been a wireless full keyboard, I am still satisfied with this keyboard.

    Good keyboard BUT ...

    Overall, this keyboard is great. However, I am constantly getting shocked from the aluminum. It gets very dry here in the winter and I think that contributes to it. I prefer the old school keyboard to this one.

    Great feel; needs wireless

    Pros need full size arrow keys and page up/down. But cables are ugly. Right now Apple only has compromises to offer you. Where is my wireless version?

    All that said, both this and the little wireless sister are the nicest keyboards I've typed on.

    Great Product...

    This keyboard is by far one of the best keyboards that I have used. The sleek design makes desk space wonderful and looks awesome too. It would be great if Apple were to make it in different colors though. The white keys seem to pick up dirft very easy. I think the silver background would look really sharp with black keys. It would also be better for clean up. Over all I love my Apple keyboard.

    Great! ...except for the spacebar

    I really like this keyboard. Very simple to use and I like having the ten-key right there.

    The only problem I have is the spacebar. It seems like it's really loose and is very NOISY. Noisy to the point that I almost don't want to use it when other people are around. I had returned the first one I bought thinking it was a glitch with that individual piece, but it appears to be a common theme for this keyboard.

    Of course, anxiously waiting for a wireless version...

    Almost....Very Very Noisy Space Bar!

    The keyboard is really nice. The keys have a great feel to them, they are the right size, it's easy to clean, and it looks fantastic. I read another review that said the USB ports wouldn't work with an iPod, but it certainly works with mine. I've also plugged in digital cameras with no problem.

    I have two complaints though. First, the USB ports are hidden underneath. It gives the keyboard a clean look, but you have to tilt it on end to access the USB port. Why not something easier to access?

    The USB location I can live with, but my biggest complaint is that the space bar is very very loud. Really loud! All the other keys are nice an quiet, but that space bar is unbelievable. If I get up before my wife she can't hear me typing on the other keys, but when I hit the space bar it's loud enough to get her up. I went to an Apple retail store to try and exchange it, but they opened up a brand new keyboard and it was just as loud. It's like it's missing some padding or shock absorbing material underneath. I see this as a design flaw that Apple should correct.

    Amazing but with flaws

    Love the function keys, design quality and feel. I can really fly on this thing! But it doesn't work with pre-OS selections like rEFlt or bios menus, despite the latest firmware upgrades. It's annoying to bring out another keyboard every time I reboot.

    The USB ports on the side are almost useless, they supply inefficient power to the connected devices, so they're only good for charging and thumb drives if you're lucky.

    Alas, its worth outweighs its faults, so I must suggest this product.

    Great keyboard!

    This is a great keyboard. I have to have numeric for work and it is very easy to use like every apple product. No other keyboard can compare.

    Disappointed

    My keyboard is just 2 months out of warranty and the keys keep falling off. Some of the buttons also get stuck so then I can't use the keyboard at all. I can't afford a new one so I'm stuck with a keyboard that doesn't function properly.

    The Apple Keyboard w/Numeric Keypad

    I love the new apple keyboard. so thin my desk looks so uncluttered it's amazing. I don't mind the fact that it has a cord and find the numeric keypad very useful. I replaced my old iMac keyboard with it as soon as i got it and am now typing on it.

    Possibly, the greatest keyboard ever.

    I have been through 4 keyboards for my custom built Windows PC. A Gateway, Logitech Classic Keyboard 200, Logitech Keyboard K120, and my best Christmas present ever, the Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad. I'm using it now, and it's the best ever. Ultra-thin, awesome aluminum, thin keys, ergonomic heaven. This keyboard will help me get more homework done faster, and play online more. Thank you Apple, for descending from the heavens, and forming in 1976. To really reach your full potential with this keyboard and so much more. The only pain is I had to reconnect the keyboard a few times. That isn't even anywhere near enough to put a dent in the 5 star rating.

    don't like this keyboard

    I have 2 of these keyboards and I find them very frustrating after a month of use. The feel of this board is good but the keys are too squished together. I have not been able to adjust to the key spacing and I'm constantly switching on the caps lock. I have trouble finding other keys - I'm no whiz touch typist but this keyboard is the most irritating I've ever tried since the first lap tops came out. I have small hands. I can't imagine how someone with large hands could type on these.

    I don't like that there is no adjustment to the keyboard angle either, and that the mouse USB is at the end of the board - I get tangled in the wire frequently. Go wireless you say? No I don't want to support Duracell all the time.

    Also I wish the caps lock indicator light was much larger. I've found in some light conditions the teeny light is hard to see and I've been stumped why I couldn't log into some stuff, to eventually see the caps lock on AGAIN! grrrrr.

    Apple could do better just expanding this board by a few mm in length and width.

    Love it... but why not wireless?

    I use this keyboard with my Windows laptop at work. (I have the wireless version for my MBP.) With a key mapping utility, it works wonderfully and is one of the best keyboards I've ever used. My coworkers appreciate its quietness--I'm a keybanger, so I can also say that this keyboard is durable.

    My only complaint about the keyboard as designed is the weird delay needed to engage the Caps Lock.

    I would have paid $100 for a wireless one of these. Maybe more. Why, oh why, must I shackled with a wire just to get a numeric keypad?

    Like it

    I've used these at school and today I got one of these to use on my macbook because I have a 2nd screen. So far it works good.
