    Both faulty within months

    • Written by from Orpington

    Care with these keyboards. Very pretty at first sight. I bought 2 for my boys to use with their macs and both had faulty, unresponsive keys within months. So, they're back with their cheap but reliable microsoft keyboards. Now trying to return them. Really upset as they were not cheap.

    Top row of letters just stopped working!!

    • Written by from WANTAGE

    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

    low profile Keyboard

    • Written by from BLANDFORD FORUM

    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!)

    how much for a tacky keyboard???

    • Written by from Cranfield

    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

    1 the usb ports are so pathetic nothing works on them so you will have to buy a usb hub at the same time. What is this about? What century was this keyboard built in?

    2 The keys require more effort to press than the old keyboard. There is a pressure barrier to go through before the key will press.

    3 They's altered the layout, yet again, and the return key is pathetically small.

    Shame on you Apple.

    Classic case of Apple Style over function

    New Apple Keyboard

    • Written by

    II too touch type around 70-80 wpm and personally
    I don’t find it easy using this keyboard. I’m going to be buying my new
    apple imac in the next couple of weeks and a really nice chap in my local
    computer shop showed me the new keyboard after I told him that I wasn’t sure if I would like the
    response of the keys as I touched typed. After having a go of this keyboard straight away
    I didn’t like it because you really have to press the keys and it felt as though I was pressing
    buttons instead of the usual response you get from a regular keyboard. So Sorry Apple I don’t
    think you did enough research for those of us who can touch type. I personally would have
    preferred using the keyboard that came with your
    earlier Apple macs and loved the sound of them too.

    Spongy Keys

    • Written by from Watford

    The original IBM keyboards are still unequalled in my opinion. The keyboard that came with my Mac Pro is far more stylish, but far less pleasant to actually type with! Please Apple, can't you commission Unicomp or someone to make a new version with a USB connection, Apple specific keys, and maybe even the fancy aluminium fascia, but retaining the original reliable contactless clicking keys for those of us who don't regard the keyboard as an afterthought and are willing to pay extra for some real quality rather than an elegant but ultimately rather useless appendage.

    The new Apple keyboard looks very nice - however, if you want to use it to type then forget it - it is ergonomically flawed. Forget this one - it's pretty useless.

    STOP If you use 10.4

    • Written by from DUBLIN 24

    I bought this keyboard to replace one that had a few non functioning keys due to coffee, delighted with my new purchase lovely look and feel to it but no software update is available for me to use it on Tiger 10.4.11. Result I have a keyboard that has a load of non functioning keys (not the same ones as the old one)EG I can't alter the audio volume, most all of the F keys don't do what they are supposed to. Be Warned, this will cost you an extra €129 to upgrade to OS 10.5 so that you can use it.
