    Exactly as advertised!

    This keyboard is fantastic! Works exactly as advertised. Required the new aluminium iMac to use higher powered devices in the USB 2.0 ports. This keyboard feels great to type on and looks great too! This is the best keyboard Apple has ever made!

    It's all in the design and it feels... good.

    As I type this I am smiling... why? Because this new keyboard feels GOOD. I mean it actually helps me to type faster with less exertion. I tend to be a hard typer and type maybe 50 words per minute... this keyboard absorbs it and actually doesn't require the same pressure I'm used to using. Make sense? I suggest you just buy one... if you're still a skeptic.. go to a store and try one. You won't be disappointed. One last thing... it looks really good with my Macbook Pro. Slim, sleek, minimal in design.

    Thanks again for pushing the design envelope Apple... we appreciate it!

    OMG

    By far my favorite mac keyboard in 7 years. The feel of the keys is great and the low profile design is a fantastic idea that works in practice. It doesn't feel flimsy either, very solid. My only complaint is the wireless version has a 4 to 6 week ship!

    I Love this Keyboard!

    Wow, this keyboard is night and day better than the older ones. I have a 6 month old iMac and when i bought it i got the wireless keyboard. it was ok but i really didnt care for it much. Yesterday i picked up this wired new apple keyboard and it is fantastic. Im writing this review because im simply looking for an excuse to type something haha. Apple came out wth yet again another fantastic product. If nothing else this one shouldnt get near as dirt as the old ones because the old ones had all the cracks and creases everywhere and were only white. Im very happy, you just have to download the software for the hotkeys to work from apple downloads

    Does not always work!

    I have 5 of these keyboards and they all suffer from the same issue. I love the typing action and have never experienced any problems with the USB ports as referred to in the comments. All keys function properly and are easy to use. The Fn key being in a different position has never bothered me. The are two main problems however - (1) The keyboard gets dirty quite quickly and (2) EVERY keyboard I have suffers from a capacitance issue that can only be resolved by unplugging the keyboard overnight when the computer is switched off or discharging it by disconnecting it and attaching a card reader to one of the USB ports to use up any retained charge. If I forget to do this I have to allow at least 30 minutes unplugged before the keyboard will function again. I have tried taking them all back to Apple Store in Kingston upon Thames but of course they are discharged by the time I get there and are found to be working normally! I believe the wireless version does not have this issue.

    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.

    Am I just unlucky or is it just that the quality dropped

    I am a web-developer and I travel a lot.
    I tend to take really good care of my products as they're the tools that bring food on my table.
    I've got my first keyboard about a year an a half ago, which died after a year, for no reason at all (never spelt anything on it, had a cover to protect it if such things were to happen) the keys started failing one after the other.
    So i decided to purchase another one. Delivery was fast, so at least one thing to be happy about. The keyboard by itself feels great but after only 6 month of use, never dropping it, never spilling anything on it, again the keys started failing.
    This time it was the light on the caps lock. Went to take my brake, locked my computer, came back and the "A" key stopped working, out of nowhere, which resulted in being locked out of the computer until i've found somebody to lend me a backup keyboard (one day of work lost as i didn't activated the digital keyboard so no way to bypass the password).
    So so far i've spent about 200 dollars on keyboards that keeps failing one after the other... Seriously ....
    On top of that the keyboard on my Mbair failed a week later, which then leaded to the screen failure according to the apple official retailer who offered me to fix the keyboard and the screen for the little price of 2800 dollars ... Yeah 2800 dollars for a Mbair that is only 3 years old.
    Fortunately i still have my Macmini for backup. So now i'm gonna have to purchase another keyboard, wait for you guys to release a new Mbpro which i hope will be a nice upgrade otherwise i'll have my two employees and myself to switch over another company because it is really exhausting to have products failing one after the other.
    I know i use them intensively but that is my job and i remember a time where my apple products would last and where the customer service would see me as a valuable customer ( 2Mac mini 2Mbpro13inch 1mbpro15inch and 1mbair + the numerous keyboard over the years).

    Anyways i'll give this guy another chance but if it fails again for no reason I swear i'll switch over another brand !

    Great feel but spotty reliability

    This keyboard is slim and feels great to type on. I prefer it to the wireless version because the design is a full-sized keyboard and I like having a separate numeric keypad and full-sized cursor and editing keys. Why Apple doesn't make a wireless version of this remains a mystery to me, particularly as the increased length would allow for the use of additional batteries and thus a longer life before needing to recharge. However, my biggest issue with this keyboard is that I've had two of them die on me for no apparent reason, the most recent one being barely a year old. Sometimes Macs will simply stop recognizing them. Some people have had luck by inserting a USB extension cable between the keyboard and the computer but that doesn't always work and shouldn't be required in any event. I do wish they'd work out the reliability of these as it's otherwise a great keyboard.

    Perfect to use

    Just get one, good to look and type. I thought to buy a wireless one but when I really look at it, I can't find an idea to buy that coz it doesn't have a numeric keyboard. Considering I won't use it out of home, bigger size will be a better choice. Great Apple:)

    Great Keyboard

    Never regret to purchase this keyboard. Responsive keyboard and elegant design of it which make I love it the most. With the two USB ports, I can charge my iPhone 6, read my flash drive or even power up my USB fan. Never have to worry about getting battery dried up like the bluetooth version of it. Talk about the durability, well, I'm just using it for a month. Go for the bluetooth if you don't like cables, otherwise this could be your perfect choice.

    true ergonomics

    i felt symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome for working on the computer all day. this keyboard helped immensely! it's very slim, the angle is perfect, and the feather touch keys are wonderful! truly ergonomic. you'll never ever like another keyboard once you've tried a mac one. :D

    Nine keys stopped working.

    I am a power user and treat my equipment very well, unfortunately this keyboard had nine keys stop working. I have absolutely no idea why they stopped working. Anywho, I loved the keyboard so purchased a replacement which will hopefully last longer!

    Excellent but Backlight Feature Needed

    One of the best keyboards I've ever used. It's thin, compact and I love typing on it. Only complain I have is the lack of backlighting. It's a hassle when you can't see what you're typing when you're in a dark environment. It's especially hard for me when I want to do my work (or play games) at night.

    Once again, this keyboard is amazing but for the next installment, I hope Apple is smart enough to add the backlight feature.

    Best keyboard I've had

    This keyboard is excellent with just enough spring in the keys. The low profile keys cause less hand fatigue than standard keyboards.

    A minor problem is that the Moshi cover stains over time (presumably from hand lotion or finger oils). However this does not detract from its functionality, and I am still very happy with this keyboard + cover purchase from 2 years ago.

    Quiet and Convenient

    I got this keyboard for a desktop setup that has my macbook plugged in to an external LCD monitor.

    I was amazed at how quiet this keyboard is. It is even more quiet than my Macbook keyboard. It types well, has a nice feel, and the additional numeric pad and other keys like home/end/delete provide expanded capabilities for my desktop setup.

    The additional cable i need to plug into my Macbook is a minus for me, but the convenience of the two USB ports it provides more than makes up for it. That means I do not need to run another USB cable from where I place my Macbook to my desk if I need to plug in USB devices.

    Highly recommended.

    Uncharacteristically Great

    I pretty much loathe apple, what they make and what they stand for, but these keyboards are brillient, I adore them and refuse to use anything else at work, to the point that I bought myself a macbook as they're the only laptop that ships with these keyboards from the factory
