      My least favorite Apple product (of all time)

      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 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

It carries a list of conveyances, but the number 1# upgrade I found in this keyboard is its flat keys making it so much easier to move on typing I recommend this product very strongly

      Great Buy For People Wishing To Use TWO keyboards to type a simple sentence

      I purchased two of these in the last few years. Why? Because the first one broke, then I purchased the standard keyboard - it also quit working, went back to I purchased two of these in the last few years. Why? Because the first one broke, then I purchased the standard keyboard - it also quit working, went back to the magic keyboard and now am using it to write this email along with my little character viewer. You might not be familiar with this cute little keyboard that can pop up on your screen, but if you buy one of these you'll get to know it well. What you have to do is....type the letters that work on your magic keyboard, stop...look for your little keyboard on the screen, and then type using that for the keys that don't work on your expensive replacement keyboard. I suppose if you are looking for a challenging brain, hand coordination activity this is the perfect product for you, otherwise it is an absolute as* pain.

      It just works

      I'm not sure why this thing has such mixed reviews because mine works flawlessly and it is why I keep buying Apple products. They just work. It's the same size I'm not sure why this thing has such mixed reviews because mine works flawlessly and it is why I keep buying Apple products. They just work. It's the same size as the keyboard on my 15" MacBook Pro so I'm already used to the size. I bought it with the mStand that is also sold on here and now it feels as if I have a desktop computer but I get to keep my portability. 10/10 would recommend.
