Summary: After 18 months of use, the entire middle row of this keyboard stopped working. I tried to fix it using all the methods outlined in the keyboard troubleshooting pages on the Apple site to no avail. It had to be replaced. There was no spillage, no Windex sprayed into it, no dropping it on the ground, nothing to warrant it breaking. Just normal, regular use. Obviously after reading some reviews I find that I am not the only one with this issue.
Summary: This is a fantastic keyboard, most comfortable i've ever used. I have 3 of them. But.. please produce a wireless version! The smaller wireless one is fine for casual typing, but not so great for when using Pro apps or for number crunching. Make a Wireless one and you'll have more of my money!
Summary: I effing love this keyboard. It's so easy to use, but seriously, why do we have to choose between having a complete keyboard and having wireless? MAKE A WIRELESS VERSION ALREADY. There are enough people asking for it. I'm a PC girl, and I would still go out and buy the wireless version of this even though I already have the wired one. The cord is rather short, even with the extender. Once again, problem solved by wireless version.
Summary: Just purchased a new iMac and the lovely wireless keyboard that came with it does not have the usual attached keypad. Ok, I get it, maybe most folks don't use it. But to not even OFFER AN OPTION of this larger keyboard in wireless form? Seriously? The wired keyboard is great, except that it is WIRED. Why am I forced to go backwards, technology wise, due to Apple's apparent belief that the keypad isn't necessary? IT IS NECESSARY.
Summary: This is a great keyboard. The key layout and spacing is fantastic and makes for very accurate typing. It's also nice and quiet to type with, which is important as I tend to press keys hard when I type, which can be very noisey on different keyboards. .......but when it comes to the USB ports all I can say is 'WHAT THE!!!!'. The two USB ports on either side of the keyboard are STILL lower power ports, and cannot even run a USB 2.0 memory stick!
Summary: I love this keyboard, but why not provide this in a wireless option? You already make a beautiful wireless keyboard, but it doesn't have the full size arrow keys or numeric keypad - why not update this product to be wireless? Otherwise, this is the single greatest keyboard I've ever owned. I have two so far and am thinking of stockpiling several in case it's ever discontinued.
Conclusion: This keyboard is just awesome. Such an improvement over my older version. The keypads are so much easier to use and the flat design is wonderful. May just order one for my other older Mac too.
