    Fantastic!

    I just got this keyboard, this week. And love it. It is so nice. I don't want to stop using it. When I saw how thin it was I didn't think it would work, but the keys are so soft to the touch, that I have to watch myself at how I type. It has the features you want for you mac. I just can't say enough about this keyboard it is FANTASTIC!!!!! I wish they were made for my PC at work.

    All touch (I mean pound), no action

    LOVE the look, but give me my old key board back..... This is a keyboard that wants to be all touch, but lacks the sensitivity - drops letters everywhere. I would stay with the old deep seated keyboard until they get the action right. We have an office with multiple keyboards that have been replaced with the old style or (worst yet) MS keyboards.

    European keyboard

    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

    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.

    Pleasemakethespacebarwork!

    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

    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.

    Far Inferior to predecessors

    I had my old keyboard from 2007 to 2014, no problem. When it did finally get wrecked in an accident, I boayght this " new and improved" aluminum case product. I am about to go to the Apple Store and buy my FIFTH of these since. They basically work for six months and then begin to go haywire. May do better in clean room environments but out in the real, humid, particulate world, they go down super fast.

    Also they get grungy to the point of disgusting and (this is important) NEVER try to clean them. No matter how careful you are or how closely you follow their instructions, it will wreck the keyboard. I even saw a tech from a Genius Bar try to demonstrate how to clean one, and even he wrecked it.

    Basically, just get used to budgeting $50 every six months for a replacement. I don't know any other answer.

    Why even bother with the usb ports?

    What initially sold me on this keyboard was the built in usb ports. This would've allowed me to get rid of the hassle of plugging and unplugging usb devices from my mac. It seemed like a great deal, but of course there was a catch. The usb ports are "low-powered" usb ports, so things that you ordinarily connect and disconnect from your computer, such as a phone, iPod, camera, flash drive, etc., do not work through the usb ports on the keyboard. SERIOUSLY APPLE? The only thing i could get to work through the usb ports was a wired mouse, which is interesting since Apple does not currently sell a wired mouse. But that brings the question of why put two ports on the keyboard if the only thing that will work is a mouse? It's not like someone connects two mice to one computer.

    Zero stars if I could. Worst keyboard ever.

    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!

    Come on Apple - listen to us...

    Please, somebody from Apple, for the love of all things Mac, get this message to Dan Riccio:

    The wired and wireless keyboards are great; but, in the words of Steve himself, they're not "insanely great." This is because they're not one and the same. The Mac NEEDS a new, FULL-SIZE bluetooth keyboard (preferably backlit, but not necessarily.) It may well prove to be your biggest-selling computer accessory! Doesn't it cause a few twitches that Logitech, LMP, Mobee and so many others constantly have to fill-in the massive gap in your own market with inferior solutions? I have read thousands (literally) of comments from people saying they would commit to paying $100 for one... PLEASE, either do your fans a solid or at least give us an explanation why it isn't possible.

    Thanks loads, and keep up the excellent work - your hardware has never been better!

    Works great

    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

    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

    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

    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.

    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

    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.
