    Oh Where, oh where could my letters be? You took my numbers as well you see

    • Written by Scott L from Airport West

    Based on two Key Factors really. 1. I have the 27" iMac Brand New, until 3 weeks ago and The keyboard size compared to the Desktop Display is just plain idiocy. I've gone with the on Screen Keyboard, (As You Become Tormented By All The Click)s, which leads me to 2. The Keyboard not working properly in the first place. It starts fine, but then as minutes go by, so do a number of letters and numbers. Restart it, same thing. Which brings me to my final advice, don't get the Mouse! get the Pad!

    Disappointing

    • Written by Sidney L from Tucson

    I'm typing this review by using my MacBook Pro 15"'s keyboard because I no longer can abide the Magic Keyboard, which has keys too small and too closely spaced. My hands are medium sized, but even so, I make so many errors when I use the Magic Keyboard. For someone with small hands, such as a child, the Magic Keyboard may be suitable. I regret buying this Apple product; I do like the Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad - English (USA), which is half the price and twice as useful.

    Almost unusable

    • Written by Warren M from New Boston

    I must preface by saying that I am not used to laptop keyboards. This keyboard is so small and cramped that I have to look at it while I'm typing....and I am a fast touch typist on a regular size keyboard. I substituted a full size Logitech bluetooth keyboard and was very happy with that, but ran into compatibility issues with some apps, so I'm back to the "magic" keyboard, which I now view as a torture device. Hoping I'll get used to it at some point. Apple hardware isn't cheap; why must they skimp like this?

    Such a disappointment

    • Written by Bronwyn L from Selkirk

    This keyboard works less than half of the time that I need to use it. In fact, I’m typing using the screen for this review because I spent several minutes unsuccessfully trying to get it to work. Since I bought it, I have had it work only sporadically. I was quite disappointed in the keyboard when I first bought it, so I went to bring it back. At the Apple store, I explained the issue with the keyboard - the apple rep was kind and understanding at first. I showed him the non-functioning keyboard. He then disconnected it, reconnected it and it worked fine (this is how I get it to work..sometimes it takes many tries of reconnecting it). So the technician tells me he doesn’t see anything wrong with it, makes me feel silly as I had asked to return it, he responded with that it seems to work fine though. So I walked out of the store with my malfunctioning keyboard and still have been dealing with issues ever since. So, my only suggestion to anyone considering to buy this keyboard is DON’T.

    Is this a joke?

    • Written by Tom M from Rochester

    This is what passes for a keyboard in 2019? Apple used to ship glorious keyboards that one could type on. This reminds me of a chiclet keyboard from a budget basement 1980s Tandy computer. People actually still need to “type*, Apple, give us a break. I love my iMac, but I had to spend $70 on a Nixeus Moda Pro, which is what ought to have shipped with the iMac in the first place.

    Apple Junk

    • Written by Duncan L from Philomath

    fn key won't work so volume keys are useless. I am running Snow Leopard on my iMac and this keyboard won't work properly. Apple can't even make their keyboards work any more. What has happened to this company that they can no longer do the basics.
    If you ignore that problem you have the problem of it being rechargeable, but with no way to change the battery. This is another way for
    Apple to gouge their customers. If you want wireless over time, you're going to have to keep buying keyboards just for a new battery.
    I'm now looking in thrift stores and online for older Mac keyboards. Steve Jobs keyboards. Tim Cook can't make a keyboard that works with my Macs. I got this with my used 24" iMac. I would not have bought it.

    Please recall

    • Written by satish R from Westford

    This keyboard is not ergonomic and will cause a lot of pain for lot of people. People with carpal tunnel syndrome have a lawsuit on their hands. Please swap the keyboard and mouse for a regular keyboard & mice.

    Awful!

    • Written by David Joss B from London

    Cheap feel yet massively over-priced. And who the h*lll needs an Eject key these days? Major fail. I'm only giving it 1 star because there's no way to give a zero star rating.

    worst waste of money

    • Written by Nate B from Dundee

    i have owned 2 of these already and my second one just broke. i was using a wipe(the wipe said it can clean pc screens and keybords) to clean the keybord. after i cleaned all the food stains on it i go to use it and its doing random things like activating caps lock on its own and other things. i even tried turning the keybord off and on and so as the computer and still its not working. dont buy this junk because ive spent $198 on this 2 of these keybords and both broke. just go buy one off of amazon for way cheaper than this garbage. trust me, you wont regret it.

    Terrible Terrible Terrible!

    • Written by David D from Grimes

    Lack of number pad is bad enough, but then add the fact that the angle, and spacing of the keys is terrible. Did anyone even test this thing before putting it into production? NEWS FLASH APPLE: SOME THINGS DON'T NEED TO BE REDESIGNED!!!

    I have owned more than one Apple Magic Keyboard and they have all been junk. Pretty junk. The battery life is nonexistent. I have to plug in my keyboard every other day. So much for wireless

    horrible

    • Written by Petr S from springfield

    It is basically kind of like a laptop keybord in both size and functionality. For a full-size Mac, I'd like a much bigger keyboard, and I'd like to avoid having to use the Fn key. The fact that it's wireless does not make it any better for me.

    Poorest Apple product ever.

    • Written by Alan H from Camano Island

    Tried hard to like this keyboard. Finally went back to wireless keyboard from a previous iMac that I owned. I missed the 10 key keypad but I found the keyboard unusable for me. I was constantly hitting the delete key. It is a shame to pay the price that Apple charged for this computer and find that the keyboard is of poor quality.

    We got rid of the keyboard right away

    • Written by Steven H from Ashton

    Apple did it again: made its keyboard too flat. Flatness is not a virtue. We immediately replaced it with another brand of keyboard.

    My wife is an incredibly fast and accurate typist. She cannot use the Apple keyboard. The touch is bad, the flatness is bad. She won't buy Apple laptops because of the keyboard and they've reproduced all the problems of the laptop keyboards with their desktop models. Apple simply pursues flat design without regard for usability anymore.

    Terrible Keyboard

    • Written by Kevin S from Astoria

    Too small, lacks a numeric keypad, a pain in the *** to use. The full sized wired keyboard with numeric keypad is better, will not frustrate you, and allow you to get what you need to get done faster and more efficiently.

    HOW LONG WILL APPLE CONTINUE TO PUT PROFIT BEFORE QUALITY ?

    • Written by Michael S from Omaha

    KEYBOARD CONS:

    -Same white & silver color design

    -STILL no wireless full size keyboard design : NO NUMBER PAD FOR KEYBOARD ! ! !

    - Small up & down ARROW keys

    - Center port is not ideally located

    - This FLAT design caters to only a select few, not the MAJORITY !

    - Apple charging $100.00 for this and it doesn't even have

    - LESS well defined print on key, a dark silver gray print

    Magic Keyboard? Where´s the magic?

    • Written by Waldo L from Miami

    How does a $99 "magic" keyboard does NOT have backlit keys??????????? How am I supposed to use this in the dark of my room while my wife sleeps and I can´t turn on a light to avoid bothering her...how am I supposed to code in the darK? What´s the magic ah? the bluethooth thing? A technology that was initiated in 1989 called short link radio technology, so am I paying $99 for a keyboard that uses a tech of 1989 and has no backlit keys? This should be sold for FREE!
