    Utter Junk Keyboard

    Looks wonderful & sleek, but it stopped working after two weeks and would not pair with IMAC. Has no backlight so impossible to tell if it's on or not. $100 down the drain.

    I expect more from Apple

    Keyboard's fine, keys work as expected. The pairing with my MacBook Pro, however is very poor. If the Bluetooth connection is ever lost due to range I have to reboot my MacBook before I can re-establish a connection. I expect more from a $130.00 Keyboard and $3000.00 laptop. Very disappointing.

    Uncomfortable and lacks tactile feel

    It is very difficult to type rapidly on this keyboard. The poorly designed board and keys are too flat. Even with the custom designed stand available from Amazon, it is not ergonomic and it is too easy to slip onto the lower row if you are not watching the keys. Having to watch keys slows things down considerably.

    Warped + Bluetooth Blues

    Do Not Purchase. I've tried two and both had the same issues: The Bluetooth kept losing connectivity and I would have to turn it on and off constantly to get it to reconnect. The E and R keys functioned intermittently. The caps lock key with green indicator light would sporadically stop working. Intermittent delayed response while typing. I've spent hours on the phone with Apple tech support trying to resolve the issues I was having with the first keyboard but without resolution, so Apple agreed to ship me a replacement keyboard. I received what looked to be a refurbished keyboard, installed it, and immediately experienced the same problems. Both keyboards are warped, bowed up at both ends. Demanded a refund from Apple today.

    Almost Unusable

    Was looking forward to an Apple bluetooth keyboard with a 10 key so quickly ordered this when it became available. The first thing I noticed is that there is almost no angle to this keyboard and no way to adjust it. This probably going back to Apple and I'll pull the wired keyboard back out.

    Arrived Damaged--Bent / Bow / Bend

    Keyboard arrived with a bend in the aluminum housing. If it wasn't ~$140 (tax included), I wouldn't complain. I expect a perfect product for premium prices.

    Junk keyboard

    With $5000.00 computer I got this flat, no backlit light keyboard...piece of Junk....Apple making joke of people...where did all the Apple Engineers go? People deserve more with such a big machine. Apple has to hire better Engineers than MBAs. It is an insult for customers.

    Complete disappointment

    This keyboard is so nice when it works but I have to turn it off and back on several times a day to get it to actually work. It is so incredibly frustrating to start typing on a BRAND NEW KEYBOARD and nothing happens until I turn it off and back on. Waste of money big time. I wish I had gone with a non-Apple version and I am so surprised at what a terrible flaw this is and why they are still selling this keyboard.

    What happened to the WIRED expanded keyboard

    Please bring back the basic, no-nonsense $50 WIRED keyboard. As a desk-bound iOS developer, I do not need the wirelessness of the Magic keyboard. Better to have a durable/replaceable keyboard for my office. And I love the USB connectors on the old wired keyboard, for charging phone, headphones, or connecting USB thumb drive, right where it's most convenient.

    And at $129, ugh, it misses the mark.

    Ergonomic Nightmare esp. for touch typing

    Beside it is bend, it i a nightmare if you are able to type blind with ten fingers. Angle is wrong, key hub is far too small, key feedback is not good. In a direkt comparison with the 2012 keyboard I lose 80 keystrokes per minute and have a lot more typos and that was already not the best keyboard at all.

    Worse product for greater price + bent

    OK, so needed to replace my wired Apple KB (the one with the number pad) that had died- the new Apple choice is the Magic Keyboard - a VERY pricey item for what a keyboard.

    Pros: it is light and compact, meaning I could take it with me somewhere easily if I needed to.

    Cons:

    - BENT! - it has become slightly bent (or perhaps it started that way and I didn't notice it) - obviously it needs an additional rubber foot/feet in the middle, since the force of typing is concentrated in the centre of the keyboard, while the feet are on the edges. time will tell whether this becomes a functional problem - for now it is just very uncool for such an expensive item from the "it just works" company.

    - Lightning connector - really, in the age of USB 3.0 / 3.1 / C you're putting more Lightning connectors out there? This is a fail on the iPhone as well as on Apple accessories (like my Magic Mouse 2, Apple TV remote and so on).

    - Bluetooth - I'm still running El Capitan for a number of reasons (related to software that I rely on) - I can only use it plugged into the computer with the aforementioned lightning cable, it doesn't appear at all in my Bluetooth prefs (MBA 2013).

    - Angle - I've gotten more used to it but the ergonomics are poor - more Apple form over function. The overall profile is a little too low and the angle from front to back is too close to flat.

    Shame shame shame Apple. If you're going to charge this much it should be an impeccably designed and constructed piece of engineering - in fact at this price point the Touch Strip should be part of it!

    Poor Quality, Unreliable, Junk

    Very disappointed. Junk. After only five weeks of light use my “caps locks” key stopped working reliably. Sometimes it works fine, sometimes I have to tap it 5-6 times—very annoying. And, like many of the posts below, my keyboard is warping like a banana. The entire keyboard is sagging in the middle. I am really disappointed in the flimsy quality and poor workmanship. I expect so much more from Apple. I hope there is a recall so I can get one that works better. I went to an Apple store today and they agree to replace it; but, they don't have any in stock so I am waiting for a phone call when it comes in. I appreciate that Apple will replace it after six weeks, but I fear that the replacement will be just as bad.

    Flimsy junk with him key keys.

    My space key through normal typing has gotten stuck on the left side so typing is now cumbersome on it. The entire keyboard appears to be bent despite my best efforts. This is the absolute last Apple peripheral I ever buy. If you’re thinking about buying this keyboard. Don’t do it. You’re better off buyin a bargain bin keyboard then this junk. I wish I could get a refund.

    Mac Extended Wireless Keyboard - Great concept but…

    Great idea but the keys are too hard, when compared to the plug in version - after a few hours my fingers hurt.
    Went back to my old plug in extended Mac keyboard.
    Sorry Apple…

    Bent keyboard

    The keyboard is bent. Seriously. It moves on the desk when I'm typing. This is bad, Apple, really bad.

    Bent from factory twice

    A Keyboard of this price should at the very least be unbent. My last iteration of the Magic Keyboard (which was nice and had better key switches) broke so I required a new Keyboard. After the first one arrived I was not really happy with the fact that the keyboard did not have the old usb hubs, which ment I had to order myself a dock to account for the loss of usb slots.
    After I paired the Keyboard with the Macbook I started typing. Immediately the Keyboard bounced around on my desk while using the Shift / Tab or Control Keys. After looking closely I saw that my Keyboard was bent in the middle so I filed a refund. After doing so Apples shipping time jumped to over 2 Months. So I ordered another Magic Keyboard from Amazon. This one had the exact same Problem.
    Sorry but this Keyboard is not even worth 30$. The Key switches are worse / The USB Ports are missing and the Keyboard comes broken from the Factory.

    Keyboard bends down in center

    This keyboard is too thin and within a few weeks will bend in the center to the extent that it's touching the desk (while the rubber feet on the sides tilt up). I returned mine to our local Apple Store thinking it was defective, only to find all of the keyboards there with the same issue. I loved everything about the keyboard except for the flimsy construction. Hopefully Apple recognizes this issue and fixes it soon. For now, I went back to my 10-year old wired Apple keyboard, which works perfectly.

    Unusable

    The keyboard was so warped straight out of the box that it was unusable. Placed on a flat desktop it rocked from side to side. This is both a design and quality control failure. Ready to return in the box without its shrink wrap and the box is bulging on one end, push that end and it bulges on the other.
    My first Mac was a 512K, there have been many since and there are six Apple products in the room I am writing from; Retina5K, iMac, MacBook Pro, iPad, iPhone, MacMini. I have never seen anything so completely shoddy before, never imagined it possible.
    Very disappointed.

    Rubbish. They arrive bent!

    I've bought a bunch of these at various points in time for our office and they all arrived warped or bent.
    What was wrong with the old numeric keyboard. Why do I have to have a wireless keyboard!!!

    Bent out of shape after 5 weeks

    A one-star review for a keyboard I really like? Yes.

    I like the action, the size, the angle, have had no connection issues, and so on.

    But after 5 weeks of use, typing hours a day (I'm a writer and book designer), it bent down in the center of the QWERTY portion, the pads at the end couldn't contact my desk, and the kb slid around. Useless.

    No help from Apple -- they claimed I must have damaged it, that there was no way it could have happened except from accidental damage. Ridiculous.

    So I bent it back and put a strip of athletic tape under the center. But it's going to happen again, and I'll bend it back again, and eventually that under-specced part will fail completely and the kb will go off to the recyclers. And I'll go back to a USB keyboard.

    Thus one star for the $130 keyboard that can't withstand typing. Ridiculous. And no, I'm not a ham-handed guy pounding on the keys.
