Basic, basic problem

Randal O, Apple Store
2 November 2012
  • Summary: You can never tell if it's on or off. When you turn it on, a little light blinks green once. And when you turn it off, guess what -- that's right, a little light blinks green once. So you have no way of knowing if it's off or on!!!! A bunch of us have just taken to taking the batteries out and carrying them separately.

You got to be kidding

John Kolata, MacMall
1 February 2010
  • Conclusion: Apple makes great machines and products -- 99% OF THE TIME. This keyboard fits into the 1%. Nothing like buying a 27" iMac and getting a cheap, but good look'n, keyboard. On the odd occasion you want to play a game its no good. Hope the guy that pushed this keyboard thru the review process missed his yearly bonus. Had to buy another bluetooth keyboard. Too bad Apple does not give an option to get a keyboard with the standard numeric key pad.

unsatisfactory

bonita delrey, MacMall
17 December 2009
  • Conclusion: Great keyboardâ??for a dollhouse. Clearly this keyboard was designed to look pretty on a desk in a fashion magazine. Certainly not designed for a person who writes all day long. The touch is terrible. The slant is nearly non-existent. Not only did they do away with the incredibly convenient number pad, they took away the page navigation, forward delete and help keys. And the half-keys for functions are a total waste.

  • Conclusion: This design without a number key off to the side is not good. If you are a touch typist or not it is not easy to use as the number are at the top of the keyboard. If you play games you cannot use the number to move within the game. The length of the keyboard causes many incorrect key strokes. I bought the new 27" iMac and it was TERRIBLE to get this cheap looking and designed keyboard. the only good feature is that it is bluetooth capable.

The only dreadful Apple product I've ever owned.

Madeleine C, Apple Store
10 November 2009
  • Summary: I guess it had to happen eventually, simply by the laws of probability. My lifetime run of one brilliant Apple product after another came to a crashing halt when I bought one of the new Apple wireless keyboards. What were you guys thinking when you designed this thing? O.K., I know, it is a beautiful design to LOOK AT. True. No question.

Where is the 10-Key pad

Mark B, Apple Store
24 October 2009
  • Summary: This keyboard is very nice, if you don't work with numbers for your job or hobby. Apple should offer a wireless keyboard with a 10-key pad, as an option, like they used to. For anyone who deals with numbers, the lack of a ten key makes this model useless. I love Apple products, but i don't understand their product strategy, especially if they hope to make inroads to the business market.
