Great product! but..
4 February 2014
Summary: I have had this keyboard for about 8 months now, and Im still very happy for it! I only have two major errors to complain about, else is this possibly the best keyboard I have ever typed on. Maybe even better than Apple own keyboards.. Cons: - CMD+TAB for shifting between programs does not work?! If you press it, and then want to go back, so you add shift (CMD+TAB+SHIFT) then it exits the tab function. That is a major error/bug!
Excerpt: I had a keyboard that doubled as a case. However, it added bulk to the IPad, and it was a pain to switch from device to device. This one is external to the iPad, so it is easy to share with my wife and her iPad, or my Android phone. Especially love the easy-switch keys, as I never have to Pair it a second time. The keys work well and are spaced well too. Really nice to have the backlighting for the keys, because I often sit outside on the deck at night.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Multi-device, Never Freezes, Versatile
Excerpt: I liked the Apple keyboard that came with my new Mac, but it never had that "just right" feeling when typing on it. This keyboard has the right feel for me. You know when the keystroke worked. I like to keep my work area on the dim side (I hate glare). Sometimes this would cause me to have to look hard to find the right key if it was one I seldom used. This keyboard solved that problem handily.
Pros: Backlighting Is Great, Easy To Set Up, Easy to Use, Efficient, Key Board Has Nice Touch, Quality Construction
Summary: Bought this to use with my mac mini, windows gaming pc and ipad (1 keyboard on my desk is much neater). It's obviously a very good looking keyboard and it sits well with other apple gear if that's what you're in to. I particularly like the backlight, which fades out when not in use and then turns back on as your hands approach to type again. Typing wise, the keys have more travel than the apple wireless keyboard which I like.
Summary: Very frustrating. Paired with windows 8.1 easily the first time, it then refused to pair after that, reinstalling drivers or resetting did nothing, and my pc bluetooth still functional with all other devices. Solution; bought an external bluetooth dongle for a tenner... now works perfectly every time. Glad I tried this before returning item. Now it's working, very good keyboard, feels classy and sturdy. Works well with ps4 too.
Summary: Much better than Apple wireless keyboards, especially comfortable for people who write a lot. However, there are some drawbacks: the keyboard lacks some of the Apple dedicated keys, particulary "next/last track" for iTunes is missing which is irritating.
Summary: This is a great product. I used to have three full sized mac keyboards cluttering up my desk now I just have one, the Logitech K811. Easy to set up and good battery life. Also the back lit key board is great, something I did not really appreciate until having one.
