Great keyboard; one small complaint

Summary: I love this keyboard, but there does seem to be a problem with the CD eject key. All of the other buttons work seamlessly, but the keyboard seems to dislike the idea of actually opening my super drive. Nonetheless, it's a great keyboard. It's a shame that Logitech isn't focusing on Mac very much anymore. I've always been a big fan of their products.
Summary: I really liked the keyboard that Apple makes for it's iMac, the wider model with the number keypad. Sadly they are very sensitive to liquids even with a cover. I purchased four of them within the last three years. One was lost to cleaning with a damp cloth, the other three due to coffee spills. The aluminum Apple keyboard is very nice looking, and once you get used to it it is a fine keyboard.
Summary: This keyboard has performed amazingly throughout my entire experience with it. It is a real shame that Logitech no longer makes Mac keyboards. I haven't replaced the batteries in it since I got this keyboard over two years ago. The only drawback to this keyboard is that the on-off switch is very chintzy. It is no longer reliable enough to stay on.
Summary: I absolutely love this keyboard. It is stylish, functional, and has quick response time. I know some people have complaints about the function keys at the top, but I really like them. While it doesn't make sense that you can't reprogram the iTunes controls for other functions, I find it very helpful being able to control iTunes without switching windows.
Summary: I loved the layout and extra function keys over the standard mac keyboard. Worked great for 6 months then the keypad section stopped working, no numbers work at all, just +-/*= work, now I have to use the number keys on the top row, might as well go back to my original mini mac keyboard. EDIT *** Found a fix , try turning off mouse keys in universal access in system pref., worked for me.
Summary: Keyboard was easy to set up, and worked as soon as it was turned on. This keyboard is used by my wife, who likes it a lot more than the keyboard that came with the Mac. We might have bought the Apple Bluetooth keyboard, but it doesn't have a number keypad, which is a real shortcoming. My only complaint is the documentation was sparse, to say the least. Is this a Bluetooth keyboard? It doesn't say whether it is or not in the documentation.
Summary: Ordered this keyboard to replace a very tired wired keyboard. The set up was very simple and all works just as advertised. Downsides? The only one I can think of is the dongle. Takes up a port and if I travel with it I have to make sure not to lose that piece. Key feel is quite good. Special keys are useful.
Summary: Was the best and basically only option for the Mac with a numeric keypad. Wanted this as bluetooth but the only thing available was a USB wireless connection. If it was bluetooth it would be perfect! Only complaint thus far is that I would like the option of raising the angle of the keyboard - it sits to low and I think I will have problems with my hands and wrist over time.
Summary: i use this on my keyboard while my MBP is next to the 24" LED monitor. along with a Logitech mouse, it's pretty much an extension of my laptop's keyboard with all its function keys. i especially like doing the budget because of the number pad. also, i like some of the quick-launch buttons for iTunes, Safari, etc., which can be customized. it's sleek, low profile matches the gloss of the LED monitor. its keys are soft and silent with quicker, shorter throws than my MBP.
Summary: overall, i am satisfied with the product. wireless USB dongle can be a little tricky. it took me a while to have it properly connected. however, once it is all straight out, you will not have any problem. the keyboard is built solid and typing does not sound loud or noisy. I was looking for a low profile keyboard with Num Pad. I was considering HP, but i am glad i got this. it has handy short cut keys that are convenient for every day use. Recommended.
