    Bent in 2 days. I would have gave no stars if I could.

    The Price of this is insane. It is a flimsy piece of garbage. I could not figure out why it had no slant, then after propping the back up on my display stand and noticing it bent. I have been propping my keyboard between my stand and my Wacom tablet for decades and have never seen one bend. I'm so over Apples misplaced concern for thin. I just ordered my first aftermarket keyboard in 15 years to replace this garbage. I can't believe we no longer have a plug in keyboard.

    I hate the direction Apple is going. I have for the first time in my 25 year career purchased PCs as work stations this year. We will slowly be moving away from apple.

    FN Keys not mapped correctly, can't control volume from keyboard

    Very frustrating that Apple can't make a keyboard that has no issues with it. I had to replace my wired full keyboard because it was inconsistently not being recognized with my macbook ( searched online, tons of others had the same issue)

    This keyboard's top row function keys do not work as expected. Very frustrating when I spend 45 minutes on the phone with apple troubleshooting and they can never solve my problem. I had to dig deeper into the shortcuts setting of my keyboard, I was able to re-map the brightness to F1/F2, but because there is no option for increasing or decreasing volume, the F11/12 keys simply do not work. I can't re-map keys that I don't have available in my shortcut menu. I cannot ADD a shortcut for volume, you can only add shortcuts for launching applications.

    Before I found the shortcut menu, the volume keys (f11/12) were taking me to my desktop, and dashboard respectively. I removed those shortcuts but still no volume control.

    Maybe your computer will not have this issue.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    SO disappointed

    As another reviewer noted, the Function keys for Volume and most other functions DON'T WORK. For some bizarre reason, in order to adjust brightness, instead of using the function keys with the icons for adjusting brightness -- which don't work -- you have to use the F14 and F15 keys which don't have brightness icons. And, there doesn't appear to be any way to change this.

    The battery level does not show.

    It took more than 20 minutes to get the keyboard to pair, which included a phone conversation with an Apple Tech Support person who asked, "Are the batteries in correctly?" To which I responded, "How should I know? The battery is built into the keyboard and there's no way to open it to see."

    This very disappointing product which I've waited YEARS for, is being returned.

    Seriously Apple..

    The function keys for volume, brightness, & playback don't work on Yosemite or El Capitan. Why would you change something fundamental like that. Please realize that not everyone uses your products the singular way you envision they use them.
