      My least favorite Apple product (of all time)

      This may be the only item I've ever been compelled to write a negative review about, for anything, ever. My dislike stems from the fact that, as others have poi This may be the only item I've ever been compelled to write a negative review about, for anything, ever. My dislike stems from the fact that, as others have pointed out (some in a positive light), that it feels just like using a laptop keyboard. Yes, it feels exactly like that. I didn't buy a standalone keyboard for it to feel like my MacBook Air (which, btw, I love). I wanted improved functionality, along with minimal cordage on my cramped desk. Having used an earlier version of the magic keyboard at work and finding it easy to use, I didn't have any qualms trading off the expanded functionality of the USB cable version for this smaller keyboard, though I suspected I'd miss it a little bit. So I was surprised to find out how different the usability of this keyboard is to the earlier magic keyboard I'd used before. The angle of the keyboard makes it difficult to type. The close positioning of the keys makes it difficult to type. The location of the fn key is constantly in my way. Oddly enough, when I'm on my laptop, I don't have any of these issues, like constantly losing letters I just typed or thought I'd typed), hitting the fn key accidentally when I want to use the control key, etc. This tells me it's not that I'm not used to a smaller size keyboard, it's that there are several major design flaws. Typing this review, even, borders on semi-painful. I'm a fast typer and a good speller -- if I were to submit this review as it were being typed, however, it would look like a 6-year-old wrote it (no offense to six-year-olds). Last but not least, I actually ALSO have a functional problem with it: the fn key doesn't work to allow me to interchange between fn keys and their other, more useful duties, such as sound control, screen brightness, etc. System preferences aren't making it work, so it's something else happening that I can't figure out. At least I can get my keyboard "fixed" ... but what I really wish I could do, is replace it entirely with the prior version of this, which may have had battery issues (or so I've heard), but at least was EASY TO USE for its intended purpose: TYPING. Sorry for the negativity. I just ... am so ... annoyed with this product.

      disappointed :(

It was perfect but it went nuts on me and would not hold a connection and would not type numbers.. it was old and it decided it to call it quits.. and I ran out to replace it today and thought that this would be the same but without batteries. Its so flat. I have had to write a report tonight and my wrists are killing me! Its not at all ergonomic.. why no legs? Why no back light ? I dont mind the keys being more shallow, i can live with that kind of a change but when it does not work for basic healthy typing position what is the point? I use an external keyboard because the keyboard on the lap top is not at an angle that is healthy to work on for long hours and a lot of typing, I am curious as to what was the rational for many of these changes ? Ergonomics are a huge issue in any work station. . I suppose i could prop it up on stuff but that is not a very good solution for mobile use. Total fail.. the old one had a very very smart user friendly design. The angle was created by the little round area where the batteries went in.. was quite brilliant. Maybe I can find little rubber feet and glue them to the back and then find something to keep it from sliding towards me, it was not designed for that but I may be able to make it work. APPLE do you have any suggestions on how to fix this issue?

      Worst Keyboard I've Invested Time and Money In

      I've given this keyboard a 14 day trial run. I really forced myself to like this keyboard, but no matter how hard I tried to convince myself of this keyboard's I've given this keyboard a 14 day trial run. I really forced myself to like this keyboard, but no matter how hard I tried to convince myself of this keyboard's ability to be a great match with my mid-2015 15" rMBP it just wasn't. Well, I've returned this keyboard for a mechanical one at the same price point. I can now be productive again, work in the dark, limit my typos, not worrying about having to reposition my fingers, having the proper keys available to navigate files and web pages, and have the proper spacing of keys for accurate typing. For $100 not worth it! I would sell this for a maximum of $28. I'm sure it only costs $20 to manufacture anyhow. Thanks, Mark

      Perfect replacement - a step up from older model

      Wanted to give a bit of background, I am a professional writer, so my keyboard is pretty important to me. Around 6 months ago I ended up with a new keyboard aft Wanted to give a bit of background, I am a professional writer, so my keyboard is pretty important to me. Around 6 months ago I ended up with a new keyboard after my previous keyboard got wet (disaster)! So I went to the Apple store and bought a new one. My old one was more angled, due to the battery storage, so the angle was something I had to get used to. There were also two other major changes. The buttons were more low profile, so they were closer to the aluminum board. The benefit of this is it is much easier to clean, so in 6 months time you won't be left with a horrible keyboard. The spacing of the keys is also a lot better in my opinion, as they are slightly closer together. This isn't where the benefits end. The battery life on this is nothing short of amazing. With writing so much, I'd expect to have to charge this every 48 hours, most of the time I'm looking at weeks between each charge. Sorry for the reality check, but anyone who is complaining about the noise of the keys has a terrible typing technique. Skimming the buttons with a light touch means that you can type really quietly. If you are dropping your fingers from 3/4cm then it is going to make a fair amount of noise. That isn't the keyboards fault, more your heavy fingers :)

      nm<> - keys decided to stop working after a week of using

      Had one keyboard packed laying around, so finally got my hands on it. Was super happy at first.

      Love it with one exception

      It's crazy to me that Apple saddles their current laptops with the extremely low-travel and terribly unreliable butterfly keyboard, when they also make the Magi It's crazy to me that Apple saddles their current laptops with the extremely low-travel and terribly unreliable butterfly keyboard, when they also make the Magic Keyboard, which is so much more reliable and pleasant to type on. I think it's telling that they never made a butterfly version of the Magic Keyboard (thank goodness). Why can't this be the one used in the laptops? My only complaint with the Magic Keyboard is that, sadly, it inherited the full-height left and right arrow keys from the butterfly keyboard. I get that this looks nicer, but it also makes it really difficult to find the arrow keys by feel. Even after months using this keyboard, I still have to actually look down at it whenever I need to use the arrows, or I end up misplacing my hand and mistyping. If Apple ever makes a version of this keyboard with half-height left and right arrow keys, I'll sell this one and buy that one!
