    I loved it at first....

    • Written by from LITTLE EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP

    It took a little getting used to, but I quickly adapted....then suddenly it totally stopped working for me. I could type, but had NO control over the space bar, so all my words ran together. I was in the middle of a major project and had to run out and buy a keyboard.

    I Googled help, got many answers, to no avail. I saw one response from someone who took it back to an Apple Store and was told "replace the batteries every 2 weeks because they expand"....2 of my batteries are stuck in there, and no way to get them out.

    I want to purchase another, but am leery in doing so....

    After 20 years of being a PC, I went to MAC over a year ago....LOVE the Apple products, but VERY disappointed in this.....

    Excellent device - just new keystrokes to learn

    • Written by from Cheektowaga

    I saw a number of people comment that this device suffers from a lack of a lot of keys that are critical. I can definitely accept that having a numeric keypad would be useful, but aside from that one part, there actually ISN'T anything that you can't handle.

    They key is to use the FN key and learn a few keystrokes. For example, there isn't a DELETE key that lets you remove characters before the cursor, but holding FN + delete (backspace) does it.

    Likewise, you can emulate the HOME or END keys with CMD + Arrow Up or Arrow Down. These aren't really new keystrokes, just ones that we're used to having single keys for instead. Once you get past that idea, they keyboard is excellent. Mine is hooked up to a Mini with a Magic Mouse in the living room and I can use it perfectly from my couch across from the TV (10 + feet no problem - have tested it to 20 with no problems either). If Apple adds a number pad, so much the better, but this product has been excellent for two weeks already.

    It would be great if this keyboard had a back light for my late working hours so I can see the keys

    MC184LL/B Special Keys DO NOT WORK ON iPad 2!

    • Written by from Oshawa

    First let me say that this keyboard is fantastic, very lightweight and portable! The only problem is that on the MC184LL/B (The Lion Model) the Brightness, Volume, and iPod Keys do not work! Therefore this product does not work as advertised and I can't give it a full rating at this time. Hopefully in iOS 5 this problem will be fixed then I will be able to re-rate it.

    Nice feel, but too many missing keys

    • Written by from Spicewood

    The touch of the keys is really nice. Battery life is great. Only complaint is too many missing keys. I really want a wireless keyboard that has the number pad as well as insert, home, end, pgup, pgdown. Those keys are really missed when I remotely connect to a windows box.

    eats batteries

    • Written by from San Francisco

    This keyboard goes through sooooo many batteries. It's a real shame to think about all the batteries I've thrown into a landfill. And, more recently, I went to change my batteries and found they had exploded/corroded inside. I'm getting a wired keyboard next.

    Nice design -BUT BE WARNED

    • Written by from Cape Coral

    If your job or input work requires any numeric work give this a miss. A wireless keyboard without a proper number pad is a complete nightmare. Why Apple don't offer a wireless full size keyboard I do not know.

    Terrible battery life

    • Written by from Minneapolis

    I have no idea what's going on with this thing, but my batteries die after about a week. I've bought two sets of completely new batteries and this thing drains them in no time flat.

    Terrible battery life - every 2 weeks

    • Written by from westport

    Battery life is terrible - replacement required every 2 weeks. Apple has failed to acknowledge or resolve this problem.

    Best keyboard I have used

    • Written by from Florence

    The is keyboard looks great and is slim and lightweight. I have used this keyboard on my iPad an Mac fr 2 years now with no issues at all. The keys are responsive and have a nice click. It is easy to pair to your computer and is easy to switch between devices. If you are looking for a great wireless keyboard then this is the ne for you. Spend the extra money it's worth it.

    Eats Batteries

    • Written by from Little Elm

    I love this keyboard, but I find that I am having to replace the batteries every 2 weeks. I'm looking for better alternatives (like rechargeable) but have not found it yet. Will keep using it, but not happy with the power drain.

    Are you serious!?!?

    • Written by from San Leandro

    I purchase this keyboard back in Feb. 2011, I missed the side number pad because I'm a Logic user and prefer using shortcut keys. I got pass that. I loved the look of the keyboard and how clean my desk appeared without cables running acrossed. Yesterday, out of the blue, certain keys no longer responded. (Cap Lock, Delete. Space, Enter, left and right arrow) My keyboard is now useless. (only 8 month of use?)I had to plug in my old keyboard. Glad I hadn't already tossed it. :(
    BTW, this is a known issue, just google it.

    Love it!

    • Written by from Portland

    I was looking for an external keyboard to improve ergonomics while using my MacBook Pro at my desk. I usually avoid wireless accessories because they are sometimes more trouble than they're worth, but this keyboard was tempting because I could also use it with an iPad or iPhone. I went ahead and ordered it, along with Apple's rechargeable AA batteries, and have been very happy with the decision.

    At my desk, the keyboard has a similar feel to the very nice built-in keyboard on the MacBook Pro. It looks great, is easy to move around and clean under, and one less cable is a plus after all. The battery charge lasts several weeks and when the battery dies it takes less than a minute to rotate in a new pair of rechargeables.

    But when I'm traveling the keyboard is really delightful. For many weekend trips I don't need my laptop, but I want to keep up with email. So I'll slip the ultra-thin keyboard in my overnight bag and pair it with my iPhone, which speeds up my email performance immensely.

    The only detail I don't like about this keyboard is that if I take the MacBook Pro away from my desk to another part of the house, the Bluetooth connection fades in and out and keeps flashing Connected / Disconnected messages on my screen. I finally got into the habit of turning off the keyboard when I leave the desk -- by holding down the power button for a few seconds -- and that cleared it up. It would have been better if this were automated somehow or configurable on the computer.

    But overall, I'm happy I tried this keyboard, and it's now an important part of my professional toolkit.

    Love This Keyboard!!!

    • Written by from Barrie

    I Bought this keyboard because I travel and it was easier to take with me when I was flying back to Canada, with my ipad than my mac book while I was in school. As a writer now I have to be able to write where ever I am and when it comes to travel I find it much easier to deal with than my mac book.

    Not All Function Keys Are Compatible With iPad2

    • Written by from Pinehurst

    Very disappointing to find that the only real use I can get out of this keyboard is typing into Notes or Pages. Still have to tap the screen to navigate around the Home Screen. Does not work with App. Will be returning this keyboard.

    purchased for iPad

    • Written by from Columbus

    I purchased this for my iPad. The keyboard paired instantly and works beautifully. I had a bit of trouble pairing with my laptop but realized it was because it was still paired with my iPad which was close by. I turned off my iPad and, voila! Instant pairing with the laptop. My only problem with this awesome little keyboard is that I'm not sure how to turn it off/on. Otherwise, it is really a great, compact, little keyboard that is super easy to use.

    Keyboard is Perfect

    • Written by from Phoenix

    I use this keyboard and the magic mouse with my MBP on a stand when I'm at the office. It works exactly how it's supposed to. I'm surprised at the bad reviews on here. I've had my keyboard for years and never had a problem. I recently tried it on the iPad 2 and it worked for typing but not navigating. No biggie; not what I bought it for, but if you want it for an iPad it might not be what you're expecting.
