    Good keyboard with limitations

    • Written by K C W from Mesa

    Lack of CAPSLOCK indicator creates frequent problems. Am constantly having to re-enter passwords Can be very frustrating and a waste of time. Put it back in the box and have returned to using keyboard that came with why MAC. Do not like the smaller size keyboard but better than multiple entries of passwords. Would not have bought had I known this.

    Great keyboard till the charging stops working.

    • Written by Robert T from Escondido

    I love the feel of the keys and being able to go between laptops and desktops with a similar keyboard. For this reason I purchased similar Logitech KB for my and my wife's work as well. The logitech Solar KB's are one of my favorite keyboards to use and I'd of given it 5 stars if not for the failures. I've had this MAC version keyboard over 5 years, and it's worked great until now, so I guess I'l luckier than many. Suddenly the battery level began to drop and then totally died. I ordered the special rechargeable battery for it, and it worked for a couple days until the new battery also discharged. It doesn't charge even in direct sunlight. I've also had three of the PC versions, one lasted six months (my wife's used at her work, replaced the battery but still malfunctioned), another 3 years, and the last one is about 2 years old and still working (use it at my work). There does seem to be a flaw in them to varying degrees, as I have other wireless keyboards twice as old still working last I used them, including my old apple wireless going on 8 years.

    I decided to go with the new Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad and see how long the rechargeable battery will last. The reason I replaced my original Apple wireless keyboard was for the Numeric Keypad after the Apple looking add-on gave me lots of problems, often not connecting or loosing connection. So far I like the new Magic KB, just getting used to the reduced travel of the keys vs the Logitech or original Apple wireless. I do wish Apple had a solar version, it's been nice never dealing with batteries with the Logitech. I think I got my moneys worth on the Apple version, not so much on my wife's PC version. Just didn't want to risk it again and like the look of the Apple wireless in Space Grey. I think most will like the Logitech and I'm sure many last a long time before failure, so I wouldn't discourage anyone form giving it a try, since it's just over a third of the price of the Apple Space Grey KB.

    Everything works except...

    • Written by John S from Plano

    I've used this keyboard for 5 years now and it works great with no batteries but recently upgrading to High Sierra the Play, Rewind, and Fast Forward buttons (F7, F8, F9) do not work with iTunes. It used to work but now I have to manually go to iTunes. I've created other short cuts on the keyboard through the mac settings but that is a hassle.

    Hope they can get this fixed because as of 8/22/18 it does not work.

    Great Until OS High Sierra

    • Written by Christopher S from Queen Anne

    This keyboard was amazing until I installed OS High Sierra. After upgrading OS, I experience lag and intermittent periods of certain keys not functioning. High Sierra killed this keyboard. I miss that days when everything Mac "just worked"......not like that anymore-- "just bugs"

    The Little Legs Break Too Easily

    • Written by Michael T from Fort Lauderdale

    This is a nice keyboard. However, be aware that the spindly little legs used to angle the keyboard break very easily. Just looking at them the wrong way will cause them to snap off. Very poor design when they could have easily made them more sturdy. Still, this is a better choice than the Apple wireless keyboard which is absolute trash.
