    ABSOLUTELY WORTH THE MONEY. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS KEYBOARD

    • Written by Don R from Portland

    THIS KEYBOARD IS WONDERFUL... AND I LOVE THE FACT THAT IT NOW HAS AN INTEGRATED NUMERICAL KEYPAD...

    KEYS:
    THE KEYS ARE TACTILE AND CRISP.

    CHARGING:
    THE KEYBOARD CHARGES QUICKLY AND I LOVE THAT I DON'T HAVE TO MESS WITH BATTERIES AGAIN WITH IT.

    Keyboard Works as Advertised

    • Written by Chris K from Los Angeles

    The keyboard works as advertised. Not sure why everyone complains about the keys not being backlit when you know (or should know) that they aren't by reading the description. There's a reason why the keys aren't backlit. Think about it, it's wireless...

    Keys aren't as nice as the old ones

    • Written by Ben S from Auckland

    I was a huge fan of the previous laptop-style keyboards, so was expecting the new ones to be as good or better.

    But these new keyboards:
    - Have slightly less depth/travel for each key so are less tactile (more mistakes)
    - Feel harder on each depress (they've lost that soft, padded feel)
    - Have a more clickity/clackity sound which is frankly annoying
    - Feel a lot cheaper to use

    If they were half the price, then fair enough but this is a premium keyboard so it's a bit of a shame all-round sorry.

    Feels nice, looks nice but....

    • Written by Larry M from Shell Knob

    I gave it 2 stars when it should have gotten 5. I took off 3 stars because of the lack of backlighting. Really? Apple? Seriously? I am really trying to like my new MacBookPro and accessories but this really, REALLY expensive keyboard is a disappointment and just above useless without backlighting. The least you could have done is send along a desk lamp that plugs into one of the many (laugh) ports on the laptop.

    STICKY AND UNRESPONSIVE KEYS

    • Written by Christian G from Garden Grove

    Had this keyboard for over a year... came with my iMac Pro. Some keys are unresponsive and really "sticky" (see the MacBook's keyboard replacement issue) and there's really no documentation on how to properly clean the keyboard. Not to mention the price for a replacement is really unattractive...

    Inflated price makes you want to puke

    • Written by Grant C from BELLOWS FALLS

    The keyboard works. To be penalized for wanting a keypad is also sickening. At least now I can justify that expensive wireless Matthias because at a ridiculous price, its still cheaper!!!

    Great keyboard!

    • Written by Laura M from Powell

    I purchased this to replace my original keyboard and number pad that used AA batteries (I bought my Mac in 2012). The Magic Keyboard is a HUGE improvement! No more batteries to replace! The keys are very quiet when you type on them. The keyboard lays nearly flat which puts less strain on my wrists than the previous keyboard that tilted up to make room for the batteries.

    Initially the function keys wouldn't work to brighten/dim or change volume and control music. I updated my OS from El Capitan to High Sierra and now it works perfectly (my Mac is too old for Maverick).

    Works well; comfortable and reliable

    • Written by Lorin C from MANSFIELD

    I first tried two different third-party Bluetooth keyboards for my brand new 2018 Mac Mini, and returned both due to problems staying paired, lagging/losing keystrokes when "waking up" after inactivity, etc. I was apprehensive from reading some other reviews here, but decided to roll the dice on the Apple Magic Keyboard anyway. I am very glad that I did. While I don't dispute the experiences of others, I can only share my own: The keyboard has been rock solid, has stayed paired with the Mini, and responds instantly when it's been sitting unused overnight: no lost keystrokes, no lag. Seems to last at least a couple of weeks on a charge -- might be longer, but I toss it on the charger overnight every couple weeks proactively. My only complaint is the extra cost for the space gray model -- yes, it looks great with my Mini, but charging a premium for it vs the silver model just smacks of greed, in my opinion. But as to the product itself, I am very satisfied.

    5 Star Product, 4 Star Cost

    • Written by Anthony B from Sydney

    I was hesitant at first to purchase this keyboard mainly based on the reviews. and the price but I wanted to set up my space grey MacBook as a desktop when I'm at home to ease writing and pressure on the already questionable butterfly keyboards that are on the new MacBooks, however. 4 days in im loving it, the keys aren't as tough on the finger tips as the MacBook Pro and they seem to bounce back at me a bit as a type, I personally haven't had a problem with any lag yet and am thoroughly enjoying the experience thus far.

    the reason I didn't give 5 stars is I don't quite understand why I should pay extra just for the pleasure of having the item in a colour that matches my MacBook, but I do admit it looks very very nice.

    Form Over Function

    • Written by Brandon S from Hattiesburg

    It looks fantastic! Its quieter than a "mechanical switch" type keyboard. (computer keyboard naming convention isn't helpful) I DID get used to typing on it but at only ½ the speed of my Microsoft Natural or Corsair K.

    You are paying for the look and mystique not features. No backlight. No extra programmable keys. Nothing special.

    TWO STARS due to price. This is a $50 max of computing value, but you may think it's art.

    Style over function

    • Written by Chris W from CHELMSFORD

    The keyboard looks great. It is not a great typing experience. There is too little travel on the keys and they come to a hard stop, making it uncomfortable with sustained use.

    My old Microsoft curve USB keyboard is far, far better and for £150, I expected something more from Apple. The other issue is (though it is unclear whether it is a keyboard or a computer issue) is that this keyboard will not react to the ALT button on power up, to go to the boot selection screen on a 2019 Mac Mini, unless the charge cable is plugged in.

    Apple can afford to hire an ergonomist. You make great play of making your software intuitive and easy to use. It should be a similar story for the man-machine interface.

    Single point failure...

    • Written by Paul D from Orangevale

    The keyboard does not illuminate. The print on the keypads is NOT easier to see in the dark. I suspect the majority of customers purchasing this keyboard are doing so because the white one your Apple product came with is impossible to read in low light. Unfortunately, the lack of illumination on this keyboard makes it a complete fail by user experience standards. Apple chose style, over functionality... therefore you should choose another company's keyboard... over Apple's.

    Hard to see the dark keys...

    • Written by Jeff S from Cooper City

    This review is for the dark keyboard. What mistake not to have back-lit keys. I'm constantly struggling to read the keys. Had this had them it would have be 5 stars easily.

    Absolute Junk

    • Written by Paul R from South Weymouth

    This keyboard replaces my original wireless keyboard without numeric keypad and it is quite simply terrible.You get lots of mistyping because the keys most of the time do not react to your input. My 8-1/2 year old keyboard still works first time every time. This one does not. So, I would not recommend it. Another thing, it is not flush to the height of the latest trackpad which works great as the the new mouse. Just the keyboard of the new Space Gray line is poor. That's it.

    For this price it should be better

    • Written by Ran E from Ramot Meir

    It's expensive product and i expect it to be great and not just ok. It should be a little bigger but the main issue I have with this one is the keys, they are just not stable enough to type fast. i have $50 keyboards that are much better than this one. In my country you can't return Apple product since there are no Apple stores, just authorised sellers.

    i have the feeling apple is laughing at us, you can't price it so high and have it function like $20 keyboard.

    Nice Touch & Design

    • Written by Nader Z from San Rafael

    I am happy with the feel, touch, and the smooth travel of the keys .

    The angle also helps my wrists by helping to reduce bending upwards. My wrists are starting to feel the years of using a keyboard!

    Hope You Like Using Cables With Your New Blutetooth Keyboard

    • Written by Ben O from Seattle

    Want to use your new $150 bluetooth keyboard with more than one MacBook? You're going to have to find an adapter (their laptops support USB-C, but they send you a USB 3.1 cable) and plug the keyboard into your laptop every single time you switch between devices because it's not going to pair unless you do so.

    Far too expensive to perform like a peripheral from 1999.

    Good keyboard, no problems.

    • Written by Raymond T from Yuma

    I haven't had any problems with this keyboard since I purchase it. This is no gaming keyboard, it's just a simple keyboard that does its job. I wouldn't put this keyboard on your lab as it could bend in the middle, as I have noticed on some reviews I've read. Just lay it on a flat surface and you shouldn't have a problem with it bending. The only issue I have with this keyboard it that there is no light that comes on when you press the caps lock key. There is a small white dot above the letters (caps lock), but no light. I don't know if it's me or that is the way it suppose to be. I tried to read the reviews to see if someone has the same issue, but came up empty handed.
