      My least favorite Apple product (of all time)

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

      Great Keyboard!

      I love it! I don't know why people have given this such bad reviews. I've had Macbook Pros for years and still do. I decided to get a bigger computer for work a I love it! I don't know why people have given this such bad reviews. I've had Macbook Pros for years and still do. I decided to get a bigger computer for work and I love the keyboard. It is nice since it is wireless and I can position it anywhere on my desk. I can store it under the monitor when I'm finished or wherever. The charge on it keeps for months. Sure the keys are semi-loud, but that is any keyboard. Actually, it sounds better than the Macbook pro touch. My husband can't stand when I type on that. I've had nothing but good things to say about this keyboard and it's super lightweight!

Easy to connect, has all the functions you'd expect from a Mac keyboard. But I feel like the last generation one was better. This one seems more flimsy. The keys clackle loudly when even touching them and feel like they rattle when you push them around.

      Great typing feel marred by a couple of issues.

For programmers using these keys often t The first issue is that the arrow keys are not the same size. Up and Down are half height keys, but left right are not. For programmers using these keys often to navigate around code without a mouse, this makes finding and using these keys by feel more difficult than it needs to be. The second issue is that the keyboard is only available in silver and white, not space grey with black keys. The full size keyboard offers both options, but this model without the number pad does not. For those of us with a nice Space Grey Mac mini, this pretty much rules out the keyboard if you want a certain look to your desk. Sounds petty, but you're dropping significant money on this keyboard, so you might as well get what you want rather than make do. Other than those two issues, though, the keyboard is nothing but positives. It holds a charge seemingly forever, has the perfect camber so that you aren't hurting your rights by bending them back while typing, has very little travel but enough that you can still feel the movement of the keys, is small enough to fit in many shoulder bags and is only ever so slightly longer than my 11" iPad Pro. In 5 rounds of testing online, I averaged 91 wpm, so you can really motor on one of these if you're a good touch typist. I prefer the feel of this to the keyboard on almost every notebook I've ever owned.
