    Works Great

    I read previous reviews and was expecting the keyboard to be just okay. I have found no problems with it at all and I am very happy with it. I am a slower typer than most and have no issue with the angle. The keyboard does have a slight angle to it and that works fine for me. I really like the rechargeable battery and battery life has been awesome.

    Hard to adjust to after using the old Magic keyboard for years

    I go back and forth between many keyboards and I find that my error rate on this is way higher than on any other keyboard I have ever used. I was really looking forward to finally having a numeric keypad back but after years of using MacBook keyboards and the standard Magic keyboard, I am just not able to adjust to the key placement on this. I am probably going to return it.

    Very Happy --- Almost perfect

    This keyboard works great; having numeric keypad, full-size arrow keys and full set of function keys is AMAZING! I came from the Apple full size wired keyboard and much prefer the feel of this keyboard, mainly as its closer to the "feel" of my 2017 13inch MacBook Pro. This makes switching back and fourth a lot easier.

    I am disappointed Apple did not:
    - include USB-C cable for charging (this is expensive and all your new MacBooks are USB-C only, this meant I needed to buy another dongle putting the price even higher)
    - did not include key "back-lighting," there are 3rd party options that include both space gray and back-lighting
    - does not sell a space gray version to match my brand new 2017 MacBook Pro
    - has not found a way to "un-map" the F14 and F15 keys from screen brightness (this was available within accessibility prior to Sierra OS X). To me, this is simply unacceptable.
    - finger print sensor (I can live without this as its easy enough to just use the MacBook Pro touch bar but slightly frustrating as the Microsoft equivalent of this keyboard includes this feature for the same price as the Apple keyboard)

    Some people complain this keyboard is not ergonomic as it doesn't tilt up (towards you). This is ABSOLUTELY ridiculous!!! If you understand ergonomics you would know that the keyboard should allow your wrists to remain as flat as possible. An "up tilt" only makes ergonomics worse, not better. This keyboard is fantastic for ergonomics as it lays flat, this also more closely mirrors your hand position on a laptop. This obviously is not a full fledged ergonomic keyboard as it does not split/separate in the middle, but that is more than clear in the picture.

    Overall, I'm very happy with the keyboard. In my opinion there isn't a better keyboard if you use Apple iMac or MacBook. With that said, Apple has the tech to make this keyboard much better and I'm disappointed they wouldn't. The changes I suggested would be very easy and relatively inexpensive with the exception of the finger print sensor.

    Best keyboard I have ever used

    I have used a lot of keyboards designed for Apple products over my many years of video production, and this keyboard by far tops them all.

    The short and snappy travel distance of the keys is perfect, it's responsive and an absolute pleasure to type with. The added numeric keys were exactly what I was looking for - and something everyone that uses this keyboard (professionally or recreationally) will be pleased with.
    The build quality is also absolutely fantastic, there is nothing that would make me think this keyboard will wear down. It also has a fantastic minimalistic look that blends in perfectly to the new iMacs.

    Definitely justifies the price, and I would definitely recommend this keyboard to anyone who needs a new keyboard for their Apple device.

    Bendy!

    I have been waiting for Apple to make this keyboard for several years now. The keyboard arrived promptly, looked lovely taking it out of the box.......but it was bent!

    Ordered a replacement keyboard, arrived (not bent!) and all was going well for two weeks until I checked it today and-guess what? It's bent!

    Now heading for keyboard number three (third time lucky?).

    I think there is a design flaw with this keyboard and that it will bend over time, even with moderate keystrokes. Such a shame, because it really is great to type on.

    I think ultimately I will be heading for a refund and going back to the wired keyboard, which is a real shame.

    Shouldn't have messed with the return button!

    Please note this is reconfigured - your pinky finger now has to reach extra far to hit return... pointless change in my opinion - why move the backslash in that spot, obstructing one of the most commonly used keys with one of the least used? Insane. I'm returning this, unfortunately.

    Finally a wireless full keyboard w/numeric keypad!!!

    I just ordered the Magic keyboard with numeric key pad today. I'm satisfied with my switch from laptop to Apple with my new 15" Macbook Pro, but disappointed with having to spend a lot of money on UCB-C adaptors and also after purchasing a Magic keyboard without numeric keypad.

    Great Keyboard

    Just bought my new wireless keyboard with a number pad. I really, really like it. As with all Apple products, installation was a breeze. The feel and response is excellent. Having the numeric keypad is something I've wanted in a wireless keyboard. Some reviewers have complained about no backlighting--I don't think that's an issue at all since I use it with my iMac is a well-lit situation. Others complain about the lack of angle adjustment--I find that the "flat" angle allows me to type with my wrists in a very neutral position which is the key to an ergonomic position. Angling it up would put my wrists at a non-neutral angle.

    Very poor tactile feedback, you won't be typing anything longer

    I've had small wireless and full with numeric pad wired apple keyboards.

    This one is the worst.

    There is no tactile feedback, I could've be hitting the steel plate with my fingers and I'd get more tactile feedback.

    The travel is also small.

    Most of the time, my fingers hit both the keys and the aluminum body of the keyboard.

    There is no resistance from the keys, you just hit hard the full stop.

    Horrible horrible keyboard.

    People, buy the old keyboards while you can find them.

    They are far far better than this trash of a keyboard.

    Reasonable quality, but too much form over function

    To clarify, this keyboard appears well made, and it works as expected.

    However, compared to my previous Apple wired keyboard, I find the shallower angle less comfortable to type on. The new key mechanism, like that on the redesigned MacBook Pro, is a lot noisier than previously, which is great for annoying family and coworkers, but not so great if you're in the room whilst someone else is using it.

    Finally, Apple have made all of the keys the same height. Not only does this mean that the function keys are taller than previous (looks a bit weird, but fine I guess) but also the bottom row (space, command, option etc) are now shorter than before, which is probably the worst part about this keyboard. Where my thumbs used to sit comfortably on these keys, I find that the reduced height makes them just that little bit more awkward to reach.

    These are small things to complain about, but important when you're using something all day, every day. For me, the perfect keyboard would have been the previous generation with numeric keyboard, just wireless!

    Great keyboard

    Been hanging out for this for ages like so many others. My iMac was replaced recently and with it a new Magic 2 keyboard. Already used to the flatter footprint compared to the original magic keyboard so no problems with the lower profile. With the new magic trackpad, certainly takes up a bit more space on the desk but they look oh so good together. And it works extremely well.

    Worst apple keyboard I have used.

    I'm on my second one of these, the first was sent back because it was bent, the replacement is also bent but not quite as bad.

    The keys on both keyboards have been terrible, very little travel and very noisy.

    It overall has a feeling of very poor quality, not what I would expect from apple.

    The only advantage I can see over the old wired one is that it is wireless, in every other way it is worse.

    Let's hope this isn't a trend for Apple.

    The Perfect Fit

    This Keyboard is the perfect replacement to the older wired keyboard of the same layout. The keys are exceptional, they take the best of the new laptop keyboards and make it even better - Best typing experience I've ever had on a keyboard. Ergonomics are great, to reiterate if you're upgrade from the older wired keyboard you will be blown out of the water. Those on here complaining of getting carpal tunnel from using this are smoking something.

    Nice keyboard upgrade

    I just received my new Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad and I am impressed with it. It sets up instantly (if you remember to turn the power switch on), can be easily configured, and works well. As far as its ergonomics, I find the slightly elevated rear to be sufficient for me. All of the built in function keys work perfectly (don't know why another reviewer had a problem with them), and it is easy to configure and add new shortcut keys on the additional function keys.

    Hugely disappointed

    The keys are too flat with no travel, Apple are meant to be all about accessibility for all! well as some one with deformities with my wrist hands and fingers "though was never an issue with previous keyboard " waiting for my new iMac to arrive but had to buy an older keyboard from eBay after trying the keyboard out in the Apple Store and finding I could not feel or use the keys at all causing discomfort, I'm In university "computer science" and wanted to buy a new MacBook Pro at the same time as buying a ,BTO iMac, but now will have to resort to buying an older second hand model MacBook Pro with older keyboard design which I sadly see as my last MacBook Pro when it becomes obsolete. Macbook loyal for 10 years! But now been pushed away for unsatisfactory and unrealistic redesign.

    No USB C cable

    Very disappointed this does not come with a USB C cable considering I purchased it along side a new MBP which only has USB-C ports. Insane that these 2 brand new products I bought together aren't compatible for charging.

    Excellent Battery Life and Works for Me!

    I ordered the new wireless keyboard as soon as I saw it was available. It arrived fully charged. With moderate to heavy use the battery barely wore down. Totally unexpected to see this type of long battery life, and a pleasant surprise to see this. Looks great with the iMac 5K with Retina Display. Nice and clean, no wires or cables.

    Note the new keyboard does have a flatter profile with a different key "feel" than the old Apple wireless keyboard; however, it was no problem for my wife and I to get use to it.

    Remember, its just a keyboard and not a warp-speed-ergonomic-rocket-ship.

    Waited forever for this....

    I couldn't wait to get rid of my wired keyboard but couldn't leave the num pad behind. When I saw this I immediately purchased. Although it was a bit overpriced I do like the keyboard. Only thing I wish... They should have replaced the eject key with an ID Touch key. Also would have been more "Magic" if they could have added the Touch Bar (understand that probably would have been rough on battery life).
