Summary: I bought this because I was looking for a fullsize keyboard with numpad, and this keyboard does have that. Sadly, the drivers for the multimedia keys (volume up, volume down, eject) do not work with recent versions of Mac OS X.
Summary: I purchased this key board to use with my Macbook pro. While I love the action of the keyboard, I am disappointed that the special keys such as the volume and eject button do not work with my Macbook. The manufacture does offer a driver for this product but the driver does not work with the newer Macbook.
Summary: I built a hackintosh desktop (OSX on non-Apple hardware) and soon learned the difficulties of running a Mac using a Windows keyboard. All the apple keyboards were expensive, and I never liked the feel of them, so I took a chance on the Macally and could not be happier. The keyboard is a little loud, but that's never bothered me. The attached USB ports don't really work on my system, but that might be a hackintosh issue and not a Macally one. Great keyboard for the price.

Summary: This keyboard has a nice touch and is full size, not like the Apple Mac keyboard. This is my second Macally Keyboard and ZI have been satisfied with them both. Give 'em a try. The price is right and the product will be as advertised.
Volume and eject DO NOT WORK withn 10.8 Mountain Lion

Summary: I love this keyboard, unfortunately the drivers are several years old and do not support 64 bit kernels such as 10.8. They recommend booting into 32 bit, I believe this is not possible with Apple newest OS, 10.8 so its back to the apple keyboard. Too bad I don't have the box or I'd send this right back. Great keyboard, awful support. Get up to date MACALLY! This would be a 5 Star if the software was recent but since the basic functionality isn't there its a 1 star.
Summary: I can confirm that this keyboard does not fully work with Mountain Lion. Volume, eject, mute, etc will not work. Other than that, I have owned two of these and they have done the job well. It is unfortunate that Macally won't update the drivers.
Summary: I have been a fan of the Macally Icekey keyboard. Last week the three audio keys in the upper right corner failed, so I just went online and bought what I thought was a replacement. What a disappointment when I connected it today! It was cheap, clunky, and noisy. It went right back in the box to be returned tomorrow. I don't know what I'll get as a replacement. (My grandson has my iMac keyboard.) I'll probably get another iMac keyboard for myself.
Summary: Mac Lion OSX? I was not at all impressed by MacAlly ICEKEY. No doubt the Mountain Lion OSX has keyboards issues. Warning: MacAlly drivers are no longer available online anywhere, neither 1.0b3 (2006), nor driver 1.1 (most recent) - dont loose your cdrom that comes with the box. I already had a generic windows keyboard (KB570BL) with Modifier Key remapping and in retrospect, it works just as good as the ICEKEY.
Summary: I've used Macally products for a long time and have never had a problem with them, until I got this keyboard. I'm not sure what happened but suddenly it just stopped working. The number pad went first, then the caps key and finally certain keys were unusable. Okay, fine, once in a while you get a lemon. The problem is, I got another one exactly like it and the same exact thing happened. It worked for a few days and then the keys started acting up.
Summary: I'll have to admit that I am not at all experienced when it comes to getting a new key board for my Mac computer (this being the second time I"ve spilled my morning coffee on it in the past 10 years!). That makes this the second time I've had to replace my keyboard! The first time I went to my local Apple store to get a new one and paid almost $70 for it! For a new key board,this time, I got on Amazon.com and started looking at keyboards for Macs.
