    European keyboard

    • Written by from Phoenix

    Since I communicate quite often in different European languages, I have always wanted a European keyboard but could never find one in the Apple Stores or at Apple. But, a friend in Spain sent me one for Christmas. I cheated and opened my gift early.

    Not only is it esthetically beautiful and comfortable but, now I can write using all those accent marks and letters that we do not have in English. There is both a $ and a € symbol. Finally!

    It has taken time to really use the keyboard. There are new keys and some keys perform 3 different functions depending upon whether the ctrl, alt or cmd key is depressed with the other key. It was easy programming the Function Keys and my e-Mac has never looked this good especially now that Leopard, i-Work 08 and i-Life 08 are installed.

    It was odd to see the USB port off to one side but I do like the extension USB provided. It is easier now to use my USB Flash Drive.

    It is so typically Apple! Well-designed, well-made, well-presented and so functional. I am one of those long-time Windows users who switched in 2005.

    Great design

    • Written by from Toronto

    This is a great keyboard. I have been using it for some time now and have no complaints. I am a very fast typer and I have no problems with this keyboard. The spacing is correct and it is ultra easy to use. Apple once again you have done a great job! Thank you.

    It may be because of my typing style, but it seems I have to hit the space bar ridiculously hard to get it to register, and I often have to slow WAY down to ensure I don't get joined words. Other than that, I like it... but this one thing is pretty important when it comes to keyboard usage.

    Apple Keyboard

    • Written by from LAS VEGAS

    Hands down the best keyboard I have ever used. My typing speed has improved dramatically. You can also eat your danish in the morning without worrying about the crumbs falling down between the keys.

    • Written by from Duluth

    Zero stars if I could. Worst keyboard ever.

    • Written by from Seattle

    My keyboard started out working just fine, then certain keys stopped working after a few days. Then the volume would go up uncontrollably and other shortcuts were activated through what must have been some sort of short in the wiring. Apple contested it wasn't covered through the warranty since its not the keyboard that came with my Mac. Eventually, when I did get a replacement, it did the exact same thing. I have since smashed it and ripped it apart to gain what little consolation could be gotten from removing such a horrible product from the world. No one else should have to suffer like this. I have since bought a $10 keyboard from Amazon that has worked perfectly and as advertised. Sometimes paying extra for the Apple name simply isn't worth it. Do not buy this product!

    Works great

    • Written by from Macungie

    I was having problems with the bluetooth keyboard and mouse, so I bought the usb keyboard. It turned out to be the best thing I could have done. I like having the numeric keypad and the feel of the keyboard is just great. I would recommend getting one of these if you aren't a fan of wireless input devices. The two usb ports come in handy since I no longer have to get behing the IMac to plug a device in.

    THE only keyboard I use

    • Written by from Oakdale

    These thin keyboards are comfortable, responsive, light, and easy to type on. I don't feel pain or discomfort in my wrists due to the thin design. I have two of these and use them instead of my laptop keyboard. Excellent in every way! THE BEST!!!

    I have a keyboard from 1995. This one died after one year and a half

    • Written by from ALTAMONTE SPRINGS

    Anyway, this is guaranteed to get you spending another $50 every year and a bit. It's pretty okay as a keyboard, and the usb things on the side are probably the one feature that saves it. However it won't last you. You will spend another $50 13 months from now.

    Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad

    • Written by from Fresno

    PROS: Keyboard

    CONS: USB extension cable. WARNING - for Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad ONLY !

    A sort of proprietary USB 2.0 connection that will not fit any other USB device or cable. As a result physical damage can occur if connected ( I damaged a cable itself and a 4 Gb drive due to this)

    Apple please provide an additional replacement and supply via store of extension cables alone. I will gladly pay to get a new one...

    Thank you

    At last the perfect keyboard.

    • Written by from charlemagne

    I got this keyboard about a week ago, and it is quite possibly the best keyboard ever made. Well, not everyone will agree with me I guess. But if, like me, you're tired of hearing noisy keys, and keys with too long a travel, keys that get stuck over time because of poor plastic components, and keyboards that take a lot of space on your work area, then this one's for you.

    This keyboard takes very little space, is virtually silent, keys feel great without too much travel, and it looks amazing too! The touch can be compared to a laptop computer.

    I am not a pro, nor do I possess a professional typist technique, so I guess people who are used to "full size, standard-typewriter-type" keyboards will have to adjust a little, as the spacing of the keys is somewhat closer.

    My only (small) complaints: the "return" or "enter" key is a little too small to my taste, and the two USB connectors provided are not powerful enough to use recharge my Ipad while I'm using it. They still can, however, recharge it very slowly if the Ipad is in sleep mode.

    Overall, for me it's the best $50 I've ever spent on a keyboard. But I understand people who might disagree with me. So my best advice to you is to go to a store which has one on display, and try it out for yourself before buying it.

    Great keyboard

    • Written by from Kotka

    Excellent feel, light touch, lovely design. What more is there to say? This is the first time in half a decade that I haven't missed my ancient full-size Apple ADB keyboard.

    Poorly designed USB ports

    • Written by from Barrô AGD

    The Apple keyboard is a superb product except for the USB ports: they're underneath the keyboard so you cannot connect a larger pen disc. The USB slot should be located much closer to the edge of the keyboard, or on the back, as in previous keyboards.

    Flat, slightly slanted keyboard, responsive lightening-fast keys, absolutely SILENT performance! Smooth operation, lots of function keys placed in useful and convenient positions. Easily useable with my gel wrist support. Able to type faster and more accurately than ever. WOW!

    It's the BEST

    • Written by from North Canton

    I got a new iMac at work 7 months ago and it came with this newer version keyboard. It took a few days to get used to, but I absolutely LOVE IT! I'm a graphic designer and have no problem with the design. In fact, I type faster. I have an older iMac at home with the white keyboard and will order this new design for home. The older style takes more "finger punch." I think it must be similar to the feeling Liberaci must have had when he practiced with weights on his fingers and then, when removed, his fingers seemed weightless and just flew over the piano keys. I have worked as a full-time graphics person for over 20 years and have no carpel tunnel problems. For those with problems with the tilt of this keyboard, you may want to look at the height of your keyboard in relationship to the degree of bend in your elbows.

    I have this keyboard at my house. Even though I use a Macbook instead of an iMac I still switch keyboards when at home. The only reason I'm giving this review 4/5 stars is because I think that Apple should incorporate the backlight technology into these keyboards! I would definitely buy another

    Numeric Keypad in Bootcamp Vista

    • Written by from Eden Hills

    I've read a few reviews complaining that the numeric keypad doesn't work in Bootcamp because there is no "num-lock" key... All you have to do is navigate through windows' clumsy start menu to find the "on screen keyboard" and click on the num-lock key on that.

    With this little annoyance out of the way this keyboard is fantastic. I love the low profile keys because it feels the same as my macbook air keyboard.

    Just a GREAT Keyboard!!!

    • Written by from huntington

    I was very hesitant on purchasing this keyboard, but after much personal debate...I got it. And I have to say that I AM EXTREMELY PLEASED!!! I mean it's only a keyboard but it works great and I have had none of the problems that have been listed. Maybe beginners luck. It started out without any problems and I happen to like the 2 USB ports. I plugged my mouse into it and off I went.
    If you're debating between this keyboard and another, you should really give this one a try. It's also very comfortable if you have Carpal Tunnel due to the low profile of the unit.
    Maybe a lttle pricey for a keyboard, BUT WORTH EVERY PENNY!
