    The keyboard Apple should have built...

    Was hesitant to pick this up because I thought it might be of lower quality than a nice Apple aluminum keyboard. To be sure, it's not aluminum, but that hasn't bothered me or my aesthetic sensibilities one bit. And it feels like a quality keyboard.

    The Pros:
    - First and foremost, it has a 10-key section.. an absolute must
    - Great typing touch/feel
    - No wires
    - Solar... (big plus for me)
    - Lays flat if you want it to and is fairly thin.

    Only thing's I would change:
    - Caps lock indicator
    - aluminum body
    - bluetooth (instead of the USB wireless system)
    - Supporting software (solar app) needs to be updated as it it needlessly "spams the console log". (Don't bother installing it, as it is hard to uninstall and you don't need it.)

    If Apple had built it, they would NOT have botched the app... and it would have been aluminum and Bluetooth. Come on, Tim... You like spreadsheets, don't you!?!?

    All in all, I love this keyboard as it has met my biggest need/want to have a 10 key on a wireless keyboard... and it's solar! Yes, there's room for improvement but at $60 it's a great value.

    Overall great!

    I ordered this keyboard when the LMP Bluetooth Keypad I was using along with my Apple wireless keyboard went out on me. I just received it this morning, & so far, I'm loving it overall. There are a couple of cons to it; namely there is no light or any other indicator to show when the caps lock is on, & I would prefer a Bluetooth keyboard so that I wouldn't have to tie up one of my USB ports. But I feel that these are things I can live with, & that the pros far outweigh the cons. So far, the keyboard seems sturdy & durable, & the keys have a great feel to them when typing. And I like the idea that it's solar powered & that I won't have to worry about buying & replacing batteries. And probably the biggest advantage: it has a 10-key keypad! Personally, I find it much more comfortable to use that keypad that the row of numbers at the top of the keyboard when possible, & it's always baffled me that Apple didn't include one on their wireless keyboard. Especially when the USB version has one! So, to sum it up, though I've only had this keyboard for a matter of hours, so far, I'd highly recommend it (Possibly even more highly than Apple's version!). I think I've finally found a keeper, & heck, if they'd fix the minor issues I have, I'd even be the first in line to buy the new model!

    Four Stars!

    I love this keyboard for its design, its feel, and that it's solar powered!

    Only four of five stars as there are no built in USB ports for my Logitech wireless USB mouse and the keyboard requires a USB receiver of its own.

    Note to Logitech: Maybe Bluetooth connectivity and built in USB ports for future models?

    Note to Apple: Maybe solar collectors in future Apple products to help further reduce their electricity consumption?

    I would recommend this keyboard and do not regret my purchase.

    No way of knowing when Caps Lock is on

    The only down side of this keyboard is that you CANNOT tell when the CAPS LOCK is on. Very annoying when entering 'passwords'

    Can't you put a light on the key ???

    Love My Keyboard- BUT?

    I absolutely love the keyboard with one exception; the letters rub off with use over a period of time. At first it was only one, but now there are several and it is becoming an issue. It is missing the C, V, N and M on the bottom row and some others across the keyboard. It is fantastic that you never have to change the batteries and I like the way the keys feel. I am hoping they have a different method of marking the keys, since I would like to purchase another one to replace the one I have. Has anyone else had this problem?

    Overall Good

    I've been using this keyboard for about a year, and mostly I like it. My one complaint? You have to use a USB port for the wireless adapter. Given that modern computers all have Bluetooth, this is ridiculous.

    Not bad and descent value

    I use this keyboard at home for light use. I was really disappointed with the loss of the 10 key function on the newer wireless keyboards and the constant battery changing was a pain. I have had it for about a year and have never had an issue with it. It stays charged and the key response it pretty good (8 out of 10). The biggest knock on it is aesthetically; it looks a little cheap. I thought it was aluminum when I purchased it on line but it is a silver colored plastic film. It looks descent from a distance but when your close enough to use it you can tell. However, it's seem functionally sound and is inexpensive.

    Like this and the price was right. Like wireless because I find wires annoying.never had a problem with the solar power always worked. I admit I'm tough on keyboards and mice. And this took a beating from me and still worked. Wish it had usb ports like the apple keyboard. plus I need only one usb port with my mouse and keyboard.
