This keyboard is better than ICEKEY, better than any Apple keyboard.
Allan Grant
You learn to adjust, however, by typing a little lighter, and the result is pleasant.
Jesda Gulati
The keys feel like those on some laptop keyboards and have good tactile response.

When my iceKey (another, better, keyboard by MacAlly) started to fail (4yrs old), I looked around for a suitable replacement. I noticed that MacAlly came out with another slim, low profile keyboard and thought I'd give it a try. It also didn't hurt that the iKeySlim was half the price of the iceKey.

Overall, the iKeySlim is a decent keyboard but it doesn't compare to the iceKey. The keys feel cheap (actually, the entire keyboard felt cheap and light) and you have to press pretty darn hard to type anything. It's also a little bit larger than the iceKey.

I'd recommed buying the iceKey over the iKeySlim if you're looking for a low profile keyboard. It may cost more but it's hands down, the better keyboard.

Verified Purchase
I bought this keyboard as a replacement based on some reviews read, and really wasn't sure whether I'd like it. Turned out to be a great buy as I really like the light touch needed on the keys. Obviously, the feel of a keyboard is rather personal and subjective, and your preferences could be a bit different, but I found it very comfortable and easy to adjust to. Furthermore, it's a full mac keyboard complete with the f-keys, etc, and at around $23 including shipping it is a great value. I liked it so much I bought another one for use at home. Great buy overall.

When my five year old Apple keyboard finally started to die, I began to look around for another keyboard. I'm not overly crazy about the newer Apple keyboards due to the grooves in them and how they love to collect dirt and junk, and they are also very susceptible to spills. So I looked around for another keyboard which still offered many of the features my Gigabit PowerMac came with. I was looking for a keyboard with the volume and eject buttons, and if it came with a power button, that would really be the icing on it all! After doin some research, I discovered the Macally ikeyslim keyboard. It looked good, it had the three volume buttons, an eject button, and evn a power button! So, on paper, this keyboard looks great.

However, I have found a few quirks. The feel of the keyboard is off for me, and I find myself often "missing" the G and T at the end of words, and my typin accuracy has gone down. The misspellings in this review are intentional to show the problems I have been having with this keyboard. Ultimately, this is my only real gripe, but considering that typing is a keyboard's main function, this causes a large problem.

Another thing which is a little difficult to get used to is the placement of the volume and eject keys, which are placed on a row on the top of the keyboard, which requires a little more arm movement thank just slightly moving my hand from the mouse to press the volume/eject keys like on the Apple Pro keyboards. This, is just a minor quibble, and not a real problem.

There is a power button on this keyboard, but it unfortunately cannot boot up older Macs like the early USB Apple keyboards could do. It can pull up a Restart/Sleep/Shut Down dialog if you press it, which is a great feature.

I've used several Apple keyboards... my trusty old Apple Pro black and translucent keyboard wore out...so I had to find a replacement for my Mac Mini, and I think I like this one better than the more expensive Apple offerings. I like the tactile feel and sound of the keys.... the sharper, more mechanical "clickity-clack" recalls classic mechanical keyboards of old. However, the key action is both light yet solid feeling, and if you're a fast typist, this keyboard won't get in your way. I find that I work smoothly and swiftly with it. Its lightweight plastic construction in construction and very thin, but everything seems to be fairly tight and well put together. It has all the buttons you'd expect from an Apple keyboard.... power button, CD eject, volume keys, etc... as well as two USB ports. It also has an old-fashioned pen/pencil groove in the top of the keyboard, which is a nice touch. It won't appeal to the more brand conscious *cough*snooty*cough* Apple customers, but to thrifty Mac owners, it's a delight. I don't think you can beat it for the money.

I bought this iKeySlim to replace an Apple USB keyboard I purchased in 2005 (the Apple spacesaver USB with the clear plastic tray around it). The Apple keyboard I had was durable but completely unenjoyable to type on, and it had a habit of collecting food and hair. Apple's key design allowed plastic to rub directly on plastic, making the keys creak lightly on impact. It felt crude and I was overdue for a change.

I was considering a $70 Unicomp keyboard with IBM-style buckling springs, but didn't want to spend that much. I also didn't want to disturb my roommate with noise.

I had low expectations for this $19 MacAlly keyboard but was pleasantly surprised when I cracked open the box at the store and discovered that the keys had an audible click. No, its not a real clicking spring sound like a classic IBM model M, but it gives audible feedback and has a gentle clicking feel under your fingers.

The keystrokes are a bit shallow, much like many modern laptop keyboards. Macally actually advertises this on the box as a feature, though I'm not sure why. Because the strokes are shallow, the impact is a bit harsher than a traditional keyboard will full size keycaps. You learn to adjust, however, by typing a little lighter, and the result is pleasant.

I wish the volume keys were on the side instead of way up on top.

The printed text on the keys can be felt while typing, which is a bit crude, but the rest of the keyboard is well made with sufficient weight (under 2lbs) to keep it on place on your desk.

I gave it 5/5 stars for noise because I actually -want- to hear each keystroke. Quiet keyboards tend to feel gummy. I started writing school papers on a Royal typewriter, so audible feedback is a huge plus for me.

I havent tried cleaning it yet, but there's phillips-head screws underneath.
