This keyboard is smaller and lighter than the Bluetooth version because there's no battery compartment.
There are two USB2 ports underneath by the sides. To power electronic devices (e.g. cameras, iPod), it has to be plugged into a self-powered USB2 port. In case you don't know, not all USB ports on Macs are self-powered.
I like the tactile feel of the keys. Typing is faster compared to the previous white plastic keyboards. The very minor issue is sometimes I mis-type letters because my fingers hit the keys nearby -- these keys are flat and not indented to prevent slips.
The layout of the keys are exactly the same as those on the portable Macbooks. If you're a new user, you'll get used to it after sometime.
There are people complaining about the lack of numeric keypad for reasons I don't know. I don't think they have Macbooks or even PC portables because I don't hear a lot of complaints from laptop users about the lack of numeric keypad. Additionally, if you want the numeric keypad, you have that option.
This keyboard can also be used in a Windows OS environment. You have to read support documents on Apple's website for specific requirements, e.g. how to map the buttons and stuff like that.
Conclusion: This keyboard is really for Mac users whose computers have no Bluetooth, and who value table space very much (or need those extra USB2 ports).
My Bluetooth keyboard had some issues so I had to use the wired version. Table space is my main priority. I bought this keyboard to replace my other wired keyboard, which still functioning perfectly well.Read more ›
My goals for the keyboard were: 1. save desk space (keyboard drawer) and 2. Have a wired keyboard that doesn't need batteries.
I'm very surprised by how small the keyboard is. Make no mistake: the keys are full-sized. It's exactly the same size and layout of the keyboard on my MacBook Pro, which is convenient.
I do not miss the media keys from the Microsoft keyboard, nor the numeric keypad (used, but never by need).
The keyboard is extremely solid -- there is no bounce or play from pressing down hard. This wonderful and makes typing very easy.
The noise is acceptably quiet. It's not silent, nor does it click annoyingly. Some of the bigger keys do make more noise (such as the delete key), but not so much that it matters.
The only thing I really miss from it is back lighting. I wish it had that as I've come to enjoy it on the built-in keyboard.
Highly recommended as a keyboard attached to a MacBook -- or for any machine where desk space is important.
They keyboard itself is pleasant to type on and quiet. No complaints.
However, the USB ports are essentially useless for anything other than a mouse (when plugged into my macbook). I tried to plug in a sandisk flash drive, and got a low power notice. This is a real hassle. But considering this is a keyboard first, and at least the mouse works, I've swallowed that deficiency for the other pros listed above.
