      Noisy and cheap-feeling, terrible value for money

This new one is definitely a step backwards. The keys feel cheap and nasty and are very very noisy when you type. I record screencasts during which I'm often typing, and the noise is ruining my audio. Also the lower angle makes it more uncomfortable to type. Unfortunately this being apple you don't have much choice if you need a keyboard, but if you can find an alternative, buy it. There's no way this is worth the £79 I paid for it.

      Excellent, as usual

      I read a few reviews about this keyboard before I bought one and a lot of them said that the arrow keys were hard to use and in general wasn't easy to use, not I read a few reviews about this keyboard before I bought one and a lot of them said that the arrow keys were hard to use and in general wasn't easy to use, not sure what they are all talking about, it is a great product, yes the arrow keys are a little smaller than on the old keyboards but there is no difference in usability, my fingers found the right keys from the start!

      Another solid Apple product

      I have had this keyboard for a few days now, and I have found that I can type much faster on this keyboard because of the lower key travel. As most other review I have had this keyboard for a few days now, and I have found that I can type much faster on this keyboard because of the lower key travel. As most other reviews have said, this new version is louder to type. But I quite like the noise, each key makes a satisfying tap to compensate for the lower key travel. The lower key travel does make they keyboard much easier to use, and is defiantly an upgrade from my wired apple keyboard with the num pad. Although, the only thing I would want it to do is be able to act as a wired keyboard through the lightning cable, as at work we have really rubbish keyboards, but no bluetooth, therefore I'd love to be able to simply plug this keyboard into my work computer and continue to use it there. This is another great product from apple. Im not sure it's worth £79 however at least when you buy from apple you can rest assured that you are buying quality and that the product is designed by Jony Ive!

      Worst keyboard ever

The product feels cheap and lightweight, and is disproportionate to the size of the iMac. The keys are cramped together and don't press down enough to feel comfortable. I found it annoying to use so dug out an older wired Apple keyboard from 10 years ago (!) that feels comparatively solid. Surprised that Apple have re-engineered the keyboard design that feels so flimsy and cheap compared to previous generations. And the price tag is taking the proverbial.

      Good, But Bundled Cable Not Compatible With Latest MacBook Pros

The keyboard comes bundled with a Lightning to USB cable but unfortunately the latest MacBook Pros only ship with USB-C sockets! Given that I've just spent £99 on the keyboard, slightly aggrieved that I have to pay an additional £25 for a cable so that I can charge the thing! Buyers beware.

They are very much prone to stop functioning with no indication as to why. Though, they are a must to fully utilises your mac. When it works it is brilliant like most MAC products, feel great and very easy to use. Type a dozen of reports, 2 dissertations with this - no complains there. Probably will not buy again though as the quality (in terms of longevity) does not validate the price tag
