    Please don't discontinue!

    I love this keyboard! I don't know why they didn't include the 10-key on the wireless model, probably just to keep its footprint very small. I don't mind that it is a wired keyboard because I never move it very far away from the computer anyway. I hope I have a chance to buy 10 more of these if they ever decide to discontinue them. It is so popular, in fact, that I know PC customers that use them! (I guess they are just trying to make it look like they are Apple customers!) This keyboard is a perfect height, the key spacing is just right and the tactile feel of the keys took less than a day of use before it felt like I had never used anything else. The engineering on this keyboard is spot on.

    Let down by caps keys

    Both the Caps and Caps Lock keys are very slow to respond, you think you've depressed them but find out later that you haven't, resulting in a lot of wasted time going back and correcting caps that aren't as intended. OK otherwise, but I wouldn't buy one again, sadly let down by this basic flaw.

    THE only keyboard I use

    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!!!

    Are you Kidding ?

    My first computer was an abacus so I've been around these things for a long time, and I've cleaned keyboards dozens of times, always simply spraying some cleaner on it and wiping it down. Exactly what every manufacturer tells you not to do, however it always worked for me.
    So when I did the same thing with this sleek looking piece of equipment with white keys, it failed. Several of the keys quit working. Even the tried and true "blow it out with compressed air " trick did not work, even though it has worked on every other KB I've ruined.
    So after all these years of violating manufacturer's cleaning instructions I figure it's time to pay the piper so I didn't even try to warranty it, especially since i learned the hard way that it is not possible to take these apart.
    On the second one (the one on which the on-board volume control did not work from day one) I did it the right way. Dampened-down a soft cloth with cleaner and went to work. Now 2 keys no longer work. Now tomorrow I'm looking forward to making the 1 hour drive each way to the Apple store, waiting in line behind an army of "20-something's" (who conduct "peaceful" demonstrations in every city about how they can't get jobs yet always crowd the Apple store) so that I can return this one. The worst part is that on the 1-hour drive home I will have plenty of time to worry about if the logic board or power supply on my imac G5 will need to be replaced AGAIN soon, since it's been a year or so since I've had that problem to deal with. Sorry guys, I'm pretty much done with Apple.

    Great design. Lousy reliability

    Had my keyboard die after about 14 months of use. A couple of the buttons the left side of the keyboard stopped working.

    Keyboard lost it's 'snappiness' after about 18 months!

    I was shocked that after 18 months, the nice feeling you get from a key when you press it and it rebounds was gone! On my keyboard, the space and Mac keys both don't spring back anymore. Shame, cuz it's otherwise an amazing keyboard!

    Epic!

    I really like how slim it is,but I can just go with the Imac G3 keyboard.
    Than again, this is probably the best gaming keyboard Ive ever used...

    I like it so much!!!

    I prefer wired keyboard. It is so nice not having to change batteries. It never runs out of power, or lose connection. It is reliable. It is outstanding. I like the keypad.

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

    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.

    Mystery Keys

    From time to time, keys stop working, then suddenly start working. Right now, I can't get a capital "w" using the shift key, I have to use the caps lock key. Very annoying.

    First rate keyboard

    Switched to iMac after using PCs from when they were first sold and one of my concerns was the Apple keyboard design. Went for the tethered version as I use the numeric keypad a lot and would probably miss it, along with the dedicated editing keys. After a month's use, I've no regrets. Feels solid and a decent weight to keep it stationary on my desk; well spaced keys, with nice touch. Only problems have been with me remembering some of the slightly different shortcut combinations, but I'm getting used to them (and that's not strictly a keyboard issue).

    Tempted to buy the wireless version to use with my iPad.

    A good keyboard, BUT...

    I love Apple's keyboards! They look simple and beautiful, they're easy to clean (no deep key crevices) and they obviously have Mac specific shortcuts printed onto them which is very handy.

    However there are some things you should consider here before buying this. This is perhaps a criticism of Apple's whole line of keyboards even, rather than JUST this one.

    You either go wireless, or go numpad-less. I really don't understand why they make us choose, there's no logical reasoning behind it. Heck this version would be able to store even more batteries! I need the numpad to do my work or even gaming properly, but that means sacrificing wireless capabilities. So I'm stuck living in the past with cables on my desk.

    On top of that for whatever reason this keyboard hasn't been updated with the Fn (Function) key the wireless model has. Why do I care? Well a lot of software uses the 'F' keys at the top of the keyboard. OSX uses these keys for shortcuts like brightness, mission control, etc.

    When using this model I can either make them operate as F keys, or make them use OSX's handy shortcuts but NOT both. Every time I want to change it I have to go into System Preferences and change things. On the wireless model I can leave it on OSX shortcuts, then hold FN+F Key when I need them to do something else. Again, another weird omission. Why in one version, but not the other?

    Overall as I said it's a great keyboard in terms of build quality and feel but I don't understand why I have to make silly compromises whichever way I go. C'mon Apple, you're better than this. It should 'just work'!

    Shocked by Apple Keyboard MB110LL/B Model 1243

    Recently purchase Apple Keyboard for my my MacBook Pro. I repeatedly receive small shocks whenever if turn away from the computer (in my chair, with feet on plastic floor mat) or leave and return to the computer for any reason. I have tried grounding the metal, but that doesn't work. It is not only annoying, with a pacemaker I am scared of the impact. This is the second keyboard that has done this. Returned the first. HELP!

    Perfect in a universe where liquid doesn't exist.

    This keyboard feels great, I love it, but my third one just died as a result of coming into contact with literally (really, literally) a single drop of water. The previous two suffered a similar fate, however after being sure that it was such a small amount (a drop of condensation from a can!). I'm not buying another. I have two older Macally IceKeys. In my frustration, I got one of them out and, using a pipette, put 5 mL of water, which is more than it sounds, right into the center of it. I'm typing on it now. It's not as pretty and doesn't feel as nice, but I'm typing on it. I can solve this difficult engineering problem for you, Apple. It'll cost a fraction of a penny on your 50 dollar keyboard. Hire me. If you have one of these, be extremely careful. Use in a room with at least 12 inches of desiccant covering all surfaces. Keep keyboard covered with the plastic from your grandma's sofa.
