I also tried this with adb keyboard and mouse (Apple ADB Mouse II) and it worked perfectly!

I've used an older Alps keyboard for the Mac with the Griffin iMate, from a G4 thru my present MacBook Pro running 10.4.10; and it still works like a charm.

They have them confused with one of Griffin's other products from that same timeframe, the iMic.

I purchased one of these for use with an old ADB Apple Extended Keyboard, which along with the old IBM Model M is one of the more reknowned keyboards in history. If you want to use one of these classic keyboards with mechanical key switches on a Mac, you are pretty much restricted to the Apple Extended Keyboard due to the special Mac keys.

These classic keyboards can be had for a song on EBay, so even when combined with the cost of a Griffin iMate you are getting a great keyboard (which originally retailed at $199) for a great price. The keyboard works great with Leopard (and Windows too), and is plug and play with no software driver needed- the Panther and older compatibility is for other ADB devices that require the software driver.

Note- I do not have an Apple ADB mouse, so have not tested compatibility with those (would be useful if those work as well, since the Apple keyboard has an extra ADB port for a mouse.)

Hey - IGNORE the dummy who left a bad review on this item, when he never bought or tried it (DUH!). I'm an Apple Mac tech, and after researching this item, I could see no reason why it wouldn't work with Mac OS 10.4 and my Intel Mac Mini. After all, OS X still supports generic ADB stuff. Asking it to support 3rd party ADB devices like Wacom tablets that require specific drivers is pressing your luck, but I figured my old ADB Datadesk Trackboard (combo keyboard & trackball) would work. Sure enough, I plugged it in and restarted, and without any drivers being installed it worked great. Even the power key works (a missing feature I really miss on the newer Apple keyboards). I'm running OS 10.4.11, and my old Trackboard is still doing the job. Thanks Griffin, and of course Apple!

When we got my wife a new Mac a few years ago, we had to get an adapter to use her old ADB keyboard. (It's a $200 ergonomic keyboard, so an adapter was cheaper than a new one--and the anti-ergonomic keyboard Apple shipped with the Mac was not an option.) The one we got worked, most of the time, but it was a lot of hassle. We had to reinstall the drivers at least once; and it had a persistent problem that it kept hanging, or something, so that we had to unplug it and plug it back in again to reset it.
Then she moved to OS X, and the old adapter didn't work any more; no drivers for it. So, again, it was cheaper to get a new adapter than to get a new keyboard. This one turned out to be great: no flakiness, and it didn't need drivers; OS X just recognized it and it worked. It Just Works.

This review was written on an Apple Extended II Keyboard plugged into a Griffin iMate which is plugged into a MacBook Pro. It works fine, and no drivers are needed. For hardware other than keyboards or one-button mice, you're on your own.

Not much I can add to the overwhelmingly favorable customer reviews already postd here...

...except to serve notice that Amazon has the product bullets completely wrong. They have them confused with one of Griffin's other products from that same timeframe, the iMic. The iMic was (still is), in effect, an external sound card; it provided audio in and out for USB computers that had no built-in audio-in ports.

The iMate, though, is an ADB-to-USB adapter, for plugging in old-style ADB peripherals to the newer USB machines (starting with the iMacs and the blue G3 "pillowcase" tower), and it has nothing to do with audio. And it works great.

Simple to use, and everything works. I have the 2011 i5 MacMini, and an Apple Extended Keyboard II. Just plug it in and start typing.

Apple has this fun feature on their OS, that popped up a dialog upon plugging in my older Apple Standard Keyboard, saying that this is a new unrecognized keyboard. It then asked me to press the key right of the left shift key. After pressing that key, OS X said we are ready to go :-) That keyboard also works perfectly. No need to install drivers or anything else... I have Mac OS Lion.

I also tried this with adb keyboard and mouse (Apple ADB Mouse II) and it worked perfectly!

Bought to use an Apple Extended Keyboard II with my mid-2010 MacBook Pro. Works great under 10.6.7 with no drivers; it's just plug and play. As a bonus, the keyboard's power button still works for shutting the computer off, but not on.

EDIT: Now using with a mid-2011 iMac still without issue on OSX 10.7
