    Worst Apple keyboard yet

    • Written by from Lynchburg

    This keyboard is the most unpredictable Apple product I own. Sometimes it will work flawlessly, sometimes it won't. It always goes berserk come time to replace the batteries. It will never reconnect to my Mac. I always have to go through a secret initiation process that Apple itself won't even publish to get the shiny metal waste-of-money to pair with my other shiny Apple products.

    I miss my white Apple bluetooth keyboard.

    If You Love Headaches, You'll Love This Product!

    • Written by from Seattle

    What The Pho is going on over at Apple?

    How did this silly thing get a green flag for mainstream? I absolutely HATE it! But its nice to look at.

    If you use your computer for anything important, the wireless keyboard and mouse is going to drive you nuts.

    This is how it goes:
    Your working on big project, your on a roll, being productive and BLAM! all of a sudden you can't type any more words! You realize the keyboard just went dead. Now what? You probably don't keep a fresh supply of batteries around the house so you go scrimmaging for batteries and pull em out of whatever you can find them in - the tv remote, your little brothers toys, your aunties dresser drawer. If all those are a no-go, then its off to the store.

    When i'm motivated and on a roll the last thing i want is an interruption, especially by something like this.

    I'm dumbfounded that they didn't include rechargeable something in these things and provide a usb cable, so when the battery goes dead, you simply plug the usb cable in the computer and continue to work while it charges.

    C'mon now Apple, i thought you guys were smarter than this. I even kinda thought you guys were "Green".

    Oh and pairing these over bluetooth and getting the machine to find and "recognize" it is another headache in itself.

    My advice: If you love headaches, you'll love this product, otherwise don't buy it.

    Mac Wireless Keyboard

    • Written by from Goodyear

    I hate this keyboard! The keys are too close together. Can you recommend an ergonomic keyboard that I can use with my Mac. Can I use any wireless keyboard? I would like to throw this one in the trash.

    Worthless keyboard in an office

    • Written by from Worcester

    The bluetooth gets totally confused and overlaps with other keyboards if you use them in an office with a dozen or more computers. I'm really upset at apple for not selling this form factor keyboard with USB. I've been buying the used USB version off ebay to avoid this wireless junk.

    Really unhappy with this purchase. every once in a while,CAN'T TYPE

    • Written by from woodland hills

    Really unhappy with this purchase. Every once in a while, usually when I'm in a rush to complete something, for some reason I still haven't had the free time (because I'm usually sorting out some other technical glitch) i CAN'T TYPE with this keyboard. It's like it freezes up or something. No letters type....... Now, to my knowledge no regular OLD keyboard with a cable would have a problem typing.

    corrosion

    • Written by from Hannover

    as many others I have the same problem that after a short period of storage, the batteries corroded and making it impossible to open or repair. Apparently there are no replacements from apple! This seams to be a serious issue and one should consider this before buying a keyboard and possibly risking 69 dollars.

    Batteries corrode in the wireless keyboard ....can't open to replace

    • Written by from frankfort

    Second day of school.....8 o'clock at night..... And a paper needs to be written. No such luck !! The batteries in the wireless keyboard have apparently corroded inside the keyboard so badly that I can not open the battery door !! Funny.... I used the keyboard all day without a problem and without the computer giving me any notices that the batteries were low. Tried and tried to get the battery door open ......IMPOSSIBLE! Even got metal shaving slivers in my hand because the metal is so soft where the battery door opens.

    2 keyboards-batteries corroded inside, can't even open battery door on one

    • Written by from New Orleans

    There must be a design problem here - never had a device that corrodes batteries to this severity when not used. Will see if duracell pays to replace it, but it seems to be a design problem since it has happened to every apple blue tooth keyboard I have owned. So while it is a great functional design and pleasant to type on, having to remove your batteries after each use makes the design kind of flawed. One can find this issue in multiple threads of apple support forums.

    Beware of iPad lockouts with this keyboard

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    This review is to warn iPad users that the keyboard may result in a major headache. I bought it two days ago and easily paired it with my iPad. So far so good. Then I decided to take it on the road, and little did I know... I put it in my bag, after switching it off, and went to the library. During transport, although the keyboard should have been off, pressure on the keys entered a wrong pass code on my iPad *multiple times*. So many, in fact, that by the time I got to the library my iPad was permanently disabled. I am frankly appalled that something like that could happen for no fault of my own. I hope that Apple will add a warning to the product description. The only safe way to transport it with an iPad in the same bag is to disable the Bluetooth function, since there is no guarantee that it won't turn on by itself. I have some important transcriptions of archival material that I did not back up in the past two days, and if this results in data loss when I restore my iPad this evening, it will mean I'll have wasted many precious hours of work. This is a very significant flaw, well known to the Apple store people I talked to today. Hopefully when Apple redesigns the keyboard or updates iOS they'll fix it. But for now, user beware!

    Keyboard HORRIBLE for ProTools and Applications That Use Numeric Keys

    • Written by from Plano

    There is no numeric keyboard and I can't find any modifier to allow one to allows keys to function as numbers. This is critical missing functionality for ProTools and other applications that use Command/Apple numeric keys for shortcut. If you are a ProTools user, I would skip this keyboard in its entirety.

    Waste of money

    • Written by from Midland

    If you would like a good return on your investment then purchasing this keyboard would be the worst possible choice.

    Reason: After 1.75yrs. you will get an alert that says the battery needs to be changed, and then after you change the battery the unit will never work again. This is what happened to me and numerous folks out there who thought that they were getting a good deal.

    Please research this claim and then make your decision.

    Not enough keys makes it frustrating

    • Written by

    It's missing too many well used keys, such as the navigation keys (home and end) the PC delete key, and the number pad. The size is nice but it doesn't make up for the lack of keys.

    I hate this thing

    • Written by from Austin

    LOVE: The wireless functionality. There are no delays, etc. HATE: Chopped off 10-key. Added 'fin' button. As a designer my shortcuts are my life. Now they're all messed up. Worse, using this at home & the extended at work. Give us an extended wireless keyboard! Please!

    No 10-key numeric on the keypad?

    • Written by from Mendota Heights

    I am very disappointed that Apple would cut corners by eliminating the 10-key numeric feature on the keypad (or at least the option to have one). The last time I recall this was on the 512k Fat Mac I bought in about 1985. I wonder how many other 20th Century features have been resurrected.

    Hating the new keyboard!

    • Written by from New Hope

    It's pretty & cute, but not very functional. I can't believe they dropped the 10-key numbers off to the right side of the keyboard. It makes it very difficult to use.

    Stop pairing

    My keyboard suddenly stop pairing with my IMac. This is my second Apple Wireless, the first one also stop pairing. Apple makes great products but the Intelligent mouse and wireless keyboard are lousy to say the least. What a contradiction!!!!

    Fragile Keyboard

    Now on our third keyboard in less than 2 years with the iMac. Built to last just beyond the warranty. Bought a competitor keyboard and it works fine. Would not recommend this product to anyone.

    Keyboard is too small

    • Written by from San Francisco

    The keyboard would be fine if it was larger. It is too small for most adult male hands. Not only is it prone to typing errors, for me it is an ergonomic disaster due to the cramped position of the hands.
