    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!

    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.

    Typical Apple

    This product is typical of apple! Perfect! The design of this keyboard is the most elegant i've ever seen. The sheer ergonomics of the keyboard increased my typing speed by 20 wpm. I've been a general windows keyboard user all of my life and since I got this keyboard I would never consider going back! Even when connected to a pc it still worked. And well put it this way, this keyboard will soon be followed with a new Mac! Well done apple.

    peeed off!

    I just bought a new imac i and was disappointed to get a pants wireless keyboard, talk about budget cuts, i was a victim of buying a new full size alu keyboard! why did they do that! As a designer, you need to use shortcuts and the wireless keyboard makes this difficult!

    Looks great, feels great and I can type faster

    It looks great & matches my Macbook Pro. I prefer the feel of this keyboard to the old Apple keyboard that it replaces, as I can type quicker with the reduced key travel on these thinner keyboards. Also I have got used to the built-in keyboard on the Macbook Pro and so no longer suffer with typos after a trip away typing on the laptop. I also find it less of a strain on my wrists as it is so thin.

    But if you prefer the clunky keys on older keyboards then I guess this might not be for you.

    Great until keys fall off

    This was a great keyboard until the keys started falling of randomly. I'm not talking about heavy usage just general home use.

    how much for a tacky keyboard???

    i struggle to understand why all the apple fanboys are gushing over a keyboard so much. for a start it is wafer thin so offers as poor a typing experience as a laptop with no play in the key presses whatsoever. secondly it offers precisely no ergonomics. not overly fussed about the usb ports, people with a basic knowledge of computers will buy a hub or an extension cable for their machine from a reputable outlet or pay over twice as much for the same thing off this website.

    on the plus side it looks alright

    Apple Keyboard With Numeric Keyboard

    Another excellent product from Apple, beautifully made and a joy to work on. The keys do take a little getting used to, it is rather like going from a typrewriter to a computer keyboard for the first time.
    Once you have used the keyboard for a couple of days it will seem that you have been using this keyboard for years. The keys are crisp and direct, they are a touch typist's dream. the layout is good, apart from the position of the fn key which is in an unusual place. I chose the wired version for the numeric keyboard which I use a lot.

    I would highly recommend this product particularly for the price.

    Well done Apple

    I am so glad I bought it, and would happily recommend it.

    Love this product

    I have found, over months of use, that the keyboard is geat to use. It is comfortable, the keystrokes give just enough resistance (so you do not find yourself having mulyiple keystrokes and one press). the addition of the numeric pad is useful when 'number-crunching' and of course it looks fantastic.

    I have used other keyboards but find this by far the bes.

    Brilliant USB conections

    It's really handy to have two USB sokets on the keyboard as my computer base unit is tucked away so it is difficult to acssess the USB ports on the main computer

    My thoughts on the Wired Apple Keyboard!

    I love the Apple Keyboard so much it has to be the best keyboard i have ever used, i am a publisher for a well known magazine and obviously as you aspect their is allot of writing going on or typing in my case, but i would just like to clarify that the keyboard does have a # key and that you are going crazy because i am using it fine to be honest so it officiously is their + oh that response time well let me tell you that the response time of this keyboard is really great and maybe its just because you have got an old Mac and it can't take the new Apple Keyboard as well as your old one. So with that i am going nice talking to you about this matter but i thought that it needed to be clarified that it is always human error in thing that are not working on the computer wether it be Mac or windows p.c.!!

    Very Nnnnice

    This is really nice looking (always important for us Apple folk) but functional. The USB ports (x2) are a very clever touch as you lose one on the Mac plugging the keyboard in. It makes a difference having those extra keys (end, home, delete etc. not to mention the number pad.)
    Only criticisms would be why can't you get the wireless version i.e. keyboard with the extra number pads etc? Plus the cable to plug into the mac is cheap and looks untidy. why didn't they use the same material as they power cable, ipod docking cable?
    Overall, very good - love the key action and not too clunky like a lot of windows type keyboards.

    Wot, no # key?!

    Someone somewhere wasn't thinking when they designed the UK version. Spent ages thinking I had gone crazy staring at the keyboard, searching in vain. There is a work round but you would think they would include # key which is so important to programmers before they started filling the spaces with random symbols such as §!
