Too small and different size than my MacBook Air keyboard
ERIK H, Apple Store

Summary: This wireless keyboard came with a new iMac 27" that I purchased recently. While I love the large screen for the iMac I am frustrated by the keyboard. I toggle between my MacBook Air when I am out of the office and my iMac when in the office. The keyboard causes me all sorts of problems. 1) It is too small 2) The keys feel like they are closer together on the wireless keyboard vs.
Summary: I had to replace my keyboard and I decided to give this one a go. I hate it already. I hate that Apple doesn't make a full size version. I bought the numeric keypad extension but why should I have to do that? It costs more money, requires more batteries, is made of plastic, and because this keyboard is smaller the arrow keys are in the wrong place and the Page/Home keys are missing, as are F13 and up.
Summary: I just purchased my third keyboard today from Apple, I selected the Apple Standard and I hope I have better luck with it then I did with the 2 wireless keyboards I have purchased in the last 4 years. I love my Mac, but both of the keyboards I purchased have had keys stop responding after about 2 years. Now, in order to type, I'm using BOTH keyboards. My A key went out on keyboard #2, luckily I had kept Keyboard #1 - which had lost it's delete key and h key.
Summary: The keyboard would be fine if it was larger. It is too small for most adult male hands. Not only is it prone to typing errors, for me it is an ergonomic disaster due to the cramped position of the hands.
Summary: I had been happy with the keyboard since I bought it 3 months ago but it just stopped working, I changed the batteries three times and it no longer is being picked up by my computer. I did not change any settings, it just stopped working while I was working on a paper. There is no support topic on this problem yet I remember reading reviews about this when I considered purchasing this keyboard initially. I should have paid attention to the reviews.
Summary: This goes for both the wireless and the wired keyboard with number pad. It doesn't matter how shiny, streamlined and flashy you make it. I don't care if it weighs less than a fly's wing and you can stuff it in the smallest bag you can find for easy portability...Mac Keyboards are not ergonomic. If, like me, you spend a considerable amount of time typing, then these are the worst keyboards ever made. Why can't they make something that will not hurt you in the long run?
Summary: Delivery, setup & connection fine - a functional, ergonomic keyboard, until you come to change the batteries. The battery access cap is seized and is bending coins (the opening tool) before it will open. Solution to this problem on the apple support forum is 'buy a new keyboard' ! I will get a replacement, but it won't be apple. VERY DISAPPOINTED.
Summary: The keyboard is lovely and compact and probably works well for those who are used to a laptop keyboard. I'm used to a full sized ergonaumic keyboard and I cannot use this one. I have to spend money for another keyboard and haven't found one that is compatible.
