Summary: I usually use Apple-branded accessories with my Mac, but had to choose something new because Apple doesn't currently offer a bluetooth keyboard with numpad. While connected, they keyboard works flawlessly. However, when I come back to the computer in the morning it takes a long time to reconnect and sometimes I even need to redo the pairing process.
Summary: I wanted a wireless keyboard to use with my ipad that had a 10-key. Good luck trying to find that! This is the only one! It's large, like a standard keyboard, which is fine, I don't have to worry about typing on an itty bitty keyboard, it was just larger than I thought! It pairs easily and you can shut it off when not in use. For an Accountant like myself, who lives on the number pad, it's just what I needed.
Summary: I, too, ignored the negative comments and bought the Macally BTKey wireless keyboard. It was easy to use, and the design was fine, but I have only had it for three months and it's dead as a doornail. I changed the battery three times and tried unsuccessfully to re sync it to no avail Don't waste your money on this piece of crap. Spend the money and save yourself the hassle.
Summary: The price was right and it worked okay. Too often duplicated letters, but that was manageable. Too often needed batteries, also manageable. But after owning it for 13 1/2 months, the bluetooth failed suddenly. The warranty is for one year. Replaced it with a wired Apple keyboard.
Summary: Ever since Apple went to the chiclet keyboard, I've been struggling with the lack of standard keys, especially since I use Windows in a virtual machine on my late-2009 Mac (no one-key back delete!). This keyboard was a great find. It is a comfortabl...
Summary: I really like this keyboard. It has an easy touch, which helps make typing easier. If I continue with Macs in the future, I'll make sure to buy a Macally keyboard. Less expensive than keyboards from Apple, which typically don't have a numeric keypad. A great product for a great price, new or used.
Summary: I have bought 2 of these, one for each work location, as they are much better than the macbook air keyboard. The extra keys, found on the right of the standard PC keyboard but lacking on the macbook, make my work so much easier. Unfortunately the 2nd keyboard arrived with a dead battery which made me knock off a rating star. I use rechargeable AAA batteries for these after the original ones die.
Great keyboard, frustrating connectivity, finally died after a year

Summary: I love the look of the keyboard, the contoured keys and touch, the locations of the eject and volume buttons, the solid feel, the rise and its ability to keep pretty clean - only one button's letter has slightly faded. BUT, every time I changed batteries, I would have a heck of time reconnecting. And half of the time waking from sleep I would have to press a bunch of keys for however long to get it to start working.
