      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!

      A Rather Nice Upgrade

      Having used the previous generation of Wireless keyboards from Apple, both the original 3 AA battery and the revised 2 AA battery version, I was a little curiou Having used the previous generation of Wireless keyboards from Apple, both the original 3 AA battery and the revised 2 AA battery version, I was a little curious to see what this latest generation would offer, so I bought one. First thing first. The packaging, build and feel is totally Apple. It is lovely. So, connected up to charge onto my iMac, the keyboard instantly paired and sorted itself out, so when I unplugged it once it had finished charging, the keyboard was already wirelessly paired and working without issue. Keys: in a word, different. They don't have as much travel as the previous generation, but after a couple of hours use, I absolutely love them. I can type much faster with fewer mis-hits. The keys don't wobble as much as the previous generation and feel great. So, if you are wondering about an upgrade from the previous generation, I would say, despite the higher price tag, it's a much better experience to use and makes my older iMac feel a little bit newer.

      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.
