    Pairing Issues

    • Written by from Baden

    While the keyboard itself is very nice, lightweight, sleek, and overall an excellent design, it does not connect to devices very well. If your keyboard drops the signal you are in for one heck of a nightmare to get it to reconnect to anything at all. I have read tons of forums to try and fix the problem but nothing seems to work. I have had it for not even a day and I have spent the last 3 hours trying to get it to reconnect to no avail. It is very frustrating, and overall very unhelpful when there is no direction in the instruction manual to resolve these issues

    Stopped working

    • Written by from Raleigh

    I had been happy with the keyboard since I bought it 3 months ago but it just stopped working, I changed the batteries three times and it no longer is being picked up by my computer. I did not change any settings, it just stopped working while I was working on a paper. There is no support topic on this problem yet I remember reading reviews about this when I considered purchasing this keyboard initially. I should have paid attention to the reviews. I'm very disappointed it did not last longer.

    2nd one lost due to batteries

    • Written by from Newhall

    I should have trusted the reviews. I have now lost 2 apple wireless keyboards in the past 3 years due to battery corrosion. I guess I got fooled twice with this defective product.

    The numeric keypad is no longer embedded over the standard keys.

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    Former Apple keyboards with a standard keyboard configuration had embedded numeric keys. Using the "FN" at the lower left allowed easy access to these keys.

    If you use an application that makes use of these keys, you will have to purchase a numeric keypad in addition to the purchase of this keyboard.

    Even though the extended keyboard is larger and wired, it may be a more effective input device for those who use the numeric keypad.

    Terrible Design

    Having hard time with batteries contacts

    • Written by from MANHATTAN

    After my first battery replacement I found that my keyboard wont turn on anymore. After a couple of battery changes I have also experienced keyboard hangs (where it, for example, has that heart-beating light, like if the batteries were empty when they're fully-charged new batteries).
    I have tried the famous aluminium paper trick to see if my batteries made contact with not much luck. Now I have taken the plastic cover out of the batteries side and each time I change them I have to manually touch (press, hit, or whatever other thing you could think of) the contact and electronic board until it turns on.
    I have a 2nd keyboard which the very same issue, unacceptable from Apple.

    Very disappointing keyboard.

    • Written by from Portland

    I purchased this keyboard because of my years of satisfaction with Mac products. What a mistake. For the first month it functioned just fine with the exception of having to repeatedly "resynch" with my iMac. Then it started failing right in mid sentence as I was working on a document. This would occur as much as 5xs a day. Extremely frustrating. Then after 6 months it stopped working period. I will think twice before replacing it with another one or buying any mac peripherals. I can now put it in my "dead drawer" where my wireless mac mouse, mac battery charger and mac batteries permanently reside.

    Worthless after one month

    • Written by from Columbia

    The keyboard came with the iMac that I purchased, and was a little small for my taste, so I decided to use it for my iPad 2 and get a Logitech solar keyboard for the iMac. Everything was great for about a month, and then, after the second time I had to change the batteries, the wireless keyboard would no longer connect to any device, including the iMac. There's no way to reset it, and it will no longer set up with the desktop. I'm not happy with this at all.

    Apple Wireless Keyboard

    This is great when it works, but once every week it stops working and then won't reconnect. Would be ok if apple care was open on a Sunday...

    Hurts forearms and wrists

    • Written by from Nederland

    This keyboard is an ergonomic nightmare. It rises in the back which causes all the muscles on the top of the forearm to tighten. This same keyboard layout is on my laptop, but the laptop's keyboard is flat. The flat keyboard doesn't hurt my arms and wrists. The angle of the wireless keyboard also slows down how fast I can type. I wanted to have something that was smaller on my desk, but I can't use it. All the ergonomic suggestions are that people have their wrist in neutral to type. This keyboard puts the wrists into extension. It would be better if it were flat. Plus, if it were flat, then it would have more surface contact with the desk so that it wouldn't slide away. This one slides away and injures the wrists and forearms.

    Worst keyboard ever

    • Written by from Rolla

    I've been touch typing for decades. This is the first keyboard that I've used on which I find it consistently impossible to consistently touch the correct keys. I don't know if it is the lack of contour on the keys, the lack of play or what. I HATE this keyboard and curse Apple for making it their default design.

    Keyboard Looks good but disconnects randomly.

    • Written by from orem

    I love this keyboard but here is my issue: It keeps disconnecting and reconnecting. I keep the keyboard about 1-2 feet away from the computer so range isn't the issue. When I Googled the problem someone said it was just interference from the Macbooks Airport (wireless.) When I turn off the airport it still disconnects just as much. I would love this keyboard if it were reliable. I have a 17" Macbook Pro Unibody, and an airport extreme network.

    ANOYING

    • Written by from Ludlow

    This keyboard out of the box was so uneven. Typing long papers is a nightmare. It would rock back and forth with every key typed. I tried bending it to stay even but no luck. Thinking about buying a Logitech its so bad.

    It's cute but annoying

    • Written by from Oakland

    This keyboard disconnects every few minutes despite being inches from my MacBook.
    It's so small that I can't balance it on my lap unless I lock my knees together.

    If this keyboard were full-sized and had a palm rest and could stay connected, it would be great.

    I'm giving it to a friend who just bought an iPad -- hopefully she'll have better luck than I did.

    I'll just go back to my microsoft wireless keyboard. It's a properly sized keyboard and the Mac drivers work just fine for making it emulate Mac special keys.

    Put my wrists out of alignment

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    I tried using the new wireless keyboard with my new iMac for a few days. The keys are so crammed together that I had to position my wrists inward, causing considerable pain and alignment troubles. Fortunately, I was able to attach the old keyboard with the USB cable, and it works fine. I wish Apple would offer the old keyboard for iMacs, just wireless.

    Not worth the materials its made from

    • Written by from Leduc

    This is the single worst keyboard i have ever owned, and i have own something out of the 80's with half the keys missing. It is an absolute nightmare to try and pair it with anything. Macbook says "Couldn't connect to device", iPhone doesn't even see it. got it to connect on my android tablet but it disconnected itself 5 seconds later. i really can't tell how it feels to type on it because it wouldn't pair with anything to save its life. I think I'm going to melt it down and make some sort of modern art piece.

    I hate this keyboard

    • Written by from Nutley

    I had to replace my keyboard and I decided to give this one a go. I hate it already. I hate that Apple doesn't make a full size version. I bought the numeric keypad extension but why should I have to do that? It costs more money, requires more batteries, is made of plastic, and because this keyboard is smaller the arrow keys are in the wrong place and the Page/Home keys are missing, as are F13 and up.

    I understand that some people may not care about this, but I do and this was the only version I could get. I have to decide if I'm going to keep this or go back to a wired keyboard. It would be a lot better if Apple just made this in a full sized version.
