    Wish it was wireless

    My family just made the "switch" from PC to Mac. We love it, however, I am FORCED to use a PC for work. I bought this keyboard because I love the action while typing. HOWEVER, why not wireless? ugh. I would give me 5 stars if it was wireless. Other than that, is awesome and it works with a PC too.

    Three Years Running

    That's right, three years. I bought this keyboard in 2008 to use on my white MacBook and it's lived through two moves, a career change and a return to school.

    It's taken quite a beating because I used to carry it to work with me daily for several months, where I used it (ten hours a day, four days a week) while taking troubleshooting calls.

    Now as a student I write code in PHP and HTML5, and I use the keyboard constantly for that. Much more than I use the built-in keyboard on my MBP. Additionally, throughout all that time I have used it for near constant communication online, through Internet Messaging and Internet Relay Chat, as well as gaming (WASD or arrow key movement for the most part).

    Lovin' it

    I think I virtually like everything about it!
    To start, it has a very sleek look.
    The feel of typing on it is great
    I work a lot on MS Excel, so the combination of MS Excel installed under virtual machine + this keyboard = you can do financial modeling on your macbook as speedy as on your work laptop

    The only thing not that satisfactory is that it's not wireless, but the trade off is that the keyboard comes with 2 USB ports. So your net gain is an additional USB port!

    That being said, I still hope apple could make a wireless version of this amazing keyboard!

    NEEDS TO HAVE WIRELESS OPTION

    I REALLY WISH THIS SPECIFIC MODEL CAME WIRELESS, WITH NUMERIC KEYPAD AND ALL, NOT AS AN ATTACHMENT. The attachment is cool for the wireless keyboard, BUT... on the ( current ) mac wireless keyboard the control, option, and command keys are smaller and the "fn" key is a pain to use. PLEASE APPLE CONSIDER THIS! Thank You!

    Best Keyboard Ever!

    Been using this keyboard for about 8 months or so and it is by far the best keyboard I've ever used! The low-profile is great and it has a solid, quality feel to it as I type. I love it!

    Not well made

    Really flimsy - the wireless keypad that is included with the imac is better. Numeric keypad is great for excel, but otherwise not such a good product.

    Quiet and Convenient

    I got this keyboard for a desktop setup that has my macbook plugged in to an external LCD monitor.

    I was amazed at how quiet this keyboard is. It is even more quiet than my Macbook keyboard. It types well, has a nice feel, and the additional numeric pad and other keys like home/end/delete provide expanded capabilities for my desktop setup.

    The additional cable i need to plug into my Macbook is a minus for me, but the convenience of the two USB ports it provides more than makes up for it. That means I do not need to run another USB cable from where I place my Macbook to my desk if I need to plug in USB devices.

    Highly recommended.

    Worked a while, then, one day, with no warning it just went kaput.

    nice but stinks

    I've loved this keyboard (came w/ MacPro, 2008?) but spilled coffee on it. It then quit working, so I bought 2 more (one for another computer.) However, the plastic used to make the keys smells horrible and gives me a headache. I've had them 4 days and it's still strong.

    Absolutely Brilliant

    Really nice weight and feel to the keys. Looks great on the desk as well. I read in some reviews that people are not happy with its performance when in contact with water, however having spilt beer on it the only problems i have are sticky keys - still registers typing fine. £40 for a replacement not bad considering what such a great keyboard this is.

    Sleek, stylish... professional

    This is an amazing keyboard. The design is excellent as you would expect from any Apple product. The two USB 2.0 peripherals are very useful for plugging in USB thumb drives and headphones without having to reach behind my iMac. The short travel keys are excellent and have a good, crisp feel. My keyboard does not have the launchpad icon on F4 but using keyboard preferences, I have made F5 open launchpad. I then printed out a launchpad icon and stuck it on F5.

    The full size numeric keypad is excellent and works amazingly well with Calculator.app, "/" pressing the divide button, "clear" pressing the C button etc. One problem is that the numeric keypad does not work with Bootcamp. probably because I haven't pressed Number Lock but I don't know which button is the equivalent of that on this keyboard.

    As always… backlit keys would have been amazing especially since you don't have the limit of battery life on a wired keyboard.

    Uncharacteristically Great

    I pretty much loathe apple, what they make and what they stand for, but these keyboards are brillient, I adore them and refuse to use anything else at work, to the point that I bought myself a macbook as they're the only laptop that ships with these keyboards from the factory

    Great keyboard!

    This keyboard is amazing...every key you need is here...unlike on the wireless keyboard. Also, this wired keyboard has larger arrow keys, a number pad, and NEVER runs out of power ( no batteries! ).

    Love this keyboard

    I'm loving this keyboard much more than the wireless one, which I also own. I especially like the additional navigation keys and numeric key pad which is a great advantage if you type numbers frequently, like I do. I also find the two USB ports on the keyboard extremely useful. It allows me to attached my portable scanner and other items right on the keyboard. Highly recommend.

    Why didn't I buy this before?

    In early 2010 I bought a new iMac to replace my old G5. I had bought the G5 with the extended keyboard. The iMac came with the smaller, wireless keyboard. I really missed the numeric keypad, especially with spreadsheets.

    Two things happened recently. I had wireless problems (solved, but requiring the temporary use of a wired keyboard and mouse) and I bought an iPad. I figured that if I bought a wired keyboard, the wireless one could be used with the iPad and the wired one could stay with the iMac (and I would still have the wireless one if preferred). Plus, I would have a wired keyboard (and I also bought the Apple wired Mouse) as a backup in case of future wireless problems.

    Well, I was very pleased to find that not only could I buy a reasonably priced wired Apple keyboard, but it had the numeric keypad, too! Perfect. Should have bought it months ago.

    The best keyboard I've used

    It may look simple but it works. I love this keyboard. The keys respond super fast and at the lightest touch, making it easy to type fast. It's sleek, compact and looks great. It also has two usb connectors on the sides and for some people this may be convenient. This is truly the best thing that has happened to me in hardware since my 2009 MacBook Pro
