    Excellent Keyboard

    Super keyboard, responsive and a pleasure to use.
    I use it with a MacBook PRO and I can't fault it.

    Excellent, sturdy, spill-proof and very reliable

    Had to use a keyboard with numeric pad in France - otherwise you need the shift key to get numbers. On return to the UK finally moved back to a QWERTY keyboard after trying this second-hand purchase. That was in 2013 and still haven't bought a new one!

    Specious, overpriced, poorly designed and short-lived.

    Do not buy one of these! I have had four and they all fail after just over a year - whence cannot be exchanged. They are, like almost all of Apple's new products, cynically contrived to be un-repairable. Even when useable, they hardly offer a good tactical experience.

    Instead buy a simple Microsoft 600 for less than a quarter of the price. It can be cleaned and repaired and, for that matter is more pleasant to use.

    Great Keyboard...USB ports Pointless

    Bought this keyboard so I could have a desktop set up with my new 2015 MacBook. The keyboard itself looks great and is nice type on. The keys are laid out well and has all the apple fiction keys you would expect to find on a Mac keyboard. However the USB ports on the keyboard have so little power going to them that I can't even plug in a USB Flash key without getting the low power warning. As the new MacBook only has one usb-c port I would have thought that they would make its power output enough for the keyboard ports to be fit for purpose. Very disappointed.

    In a nutshell, if you are buying this keyboard to work with your new mabook, don't even think about being able to use the 2 USB ports!

    Disappointing

    Nice form factor, really welcome having all the keys.
    But, a few disappointing points.
    Moving the fn key is a pain because on the laptop I had finally gotten used to it being bottom left. Now that is gone again.

    But the worst thing is the actual typing. 1 in 3 words, at least 1 letter will be mised. Makes you think you're typing wrongly, then you go bak and realise you DID hit the key, it just didn't respond. Looks like the macbook chiclet keyboard but is Nowhere near as good. The keys are wobbly and rattly and unresponsive.

    Almost perfect

    I've had my wired Apple keyboard with number pad for a few days now and I have to say I think it's a marked improvement on the wireless variety which it replaced.

    The thing I don't really understand is why haven't Apple produced this keyboard in a wireless version for users that would prefer it.

    For my part the cable doesn't trouble me in anyway whatsoever with the exception that it takes up a USB port on my iMac but as pretty much everything else I use is wireless it's not an issue for me and considering I no longer have to be concerned with battery power/replacement and the occasional bluetooth disconnect this just isn't an issue, at least not for me. I suppose it would be more aesthetically pleasing without the cable but hey ho I think the advantages that this keyboard offers over the wireless version far outweigh any disadvantages.

    My only gripe is that although it's very pleasing to the eye as it is it would be better if it had the same profile as the wireless keyboard but only because it would then be a better match for the trackpad, perhaps an option for Apple to consider would be to produce a trackpad that matches this keyboard ... merely a suggestion ... I'm very happy with it the way it is.

    A beautiful keyboard

    I received this keyboard with my iMac. I went for this version over the wireless version as I like to have a numeric keypad.

    Everything about this keyboard is just perfect. The keys are a good size and its a really quiet keyboard to type on. The keyboard is really well made out of aluminium (which is a nice change from the usual plastic). The angle of the keyboard I find perfect and I can type for a long time without getting any wrist pain at all.

    A nice touch as well is the two USB 2 ports on each end of the keyboard. These are ideal for connecting a USB thumb drive or for connecting your iPhone or iPad. It is possible to charge the iPhone too.

    I am totally satisfied with this keyboard and cannot fault it at all.

    The good and the bad!

    Love the feel of the keyboard: I can type really quickly on it (much nicer than my Microsoft one).
    I wish it had two 'things' at the back to enable it to tilt, however. It would also mean that the mouse/keyboard cables don't catch underneath it. There can be quite a bit of wobble if this happens. Worst thing, though, is the very short length of the mouse cable. It twists incredibly easily and that, too, gets caught beneath the right side of the keyboard. The place where or near where - the cable goes into the mouse also easily sits on top of the rest of the cable, result no mouse. It only takes a moment to sit it on the desk again, but it's still a nuisance. Apart from that, though, really good.

    Top row of letters just stopped working!!

    Only 9 months old, it hasn't had any spillages and the expose key suddenly stopped working, I rebooted and then that came back, but then seconds later letters Q to P suddenly stopped working. Tried usual troubleshooting, checked forums etc. This is my second keyboard after the letter F stopped working on my last one. Really weird as I dont think I am doing anything peculiar !!!! Can only think it must be hardware related

    Pleasure

    Bought this Keyboard a few months ago mainly for the numeric keypad for entering accounts info, looked at the stand alone numeric one, but thought for the small amount of extra money and extra usb ports might aswell go with the full version, glad I did what a pleasure the keyboard is to use and the quality is excellent, a good product!

    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.

    Good, but also rubbish.

    This keyboard is good, when you're typing, however, it can all go wrong very quickly. For example, though most keyboard ain't that good with water, they'd at least work even a drip were to enter the keyboard. However, the Apple one doesn't even perform the most basics, like for example, typing, when a drip enters it.

    And once it goes wrong, that's it. You'd need a new one, which costs £40! For a replacement?! That's just ridiculous! There's a limit to charges!

    So overall, a good product, could be made better however.

    One of the Best Keyboards

    This is my favourite USB keyboard, keys are really comfortable to type on, it looks stunning and overall is really good, one of my favourites keyboards as well as that on the PowerBook G4 and the earlier MacBook Pro's, only backlight would have been a great addition, but doesn't matter greatly

    low profile Keyboard

    I've been using one of these for work for about 9 months. With extensive, constant use I find my wrists ache and finger tips are numb possibly because there isn't as much "give" on the keys as the old conventional type keyboard. Maybe I press the keys to hard but that's the way I've always worked. I came on this site to try and by one of the old keyboards but they don't seem to sell them any more . . .(Seems I'm forced to at least give this 1 star!)
