Not worth the price, or the hassles,
This review is from: Apple MC184LL/B Wireless Keyboard (Personal Computers)
We got this keyboard last year when we bought our iMac, despite some initial reservations we had. Initially, we found that its small size, and non-ergonomic shape made it difficult to use for any extended period of time; it has the feel and functionality of a netbook keyboard. The size of the keyboard also got in the way of enjoying the main perk, which is supposed to be the wireless feature. One of the reasons we got this keyboard was so we could sit back in our chair, and rest it on our lap. However, the small size of it keeps you from being able to rest it comfortably on your legs, and it ended up sitting on the desk, negating one of the advantages of wireless. Which brings us to . . .
The wireless feature. When it worked right, it was as advertized. However, the keyboard seems to randomly go haywire, and start doing its own thing. Caps Lock would turn on . . then off . . then on again. You would start seeing things like: "qqqqq1111111111111111444444222[dim screen, mute]", etc. It wouldn't do this every day, but at least once or twice a week, for the past year. Usually, after playing with it for a while, it would stop. Finally the other day, we were unable to bring it under compliance, and threw it away. We have given up, and will be getting a larger, usb keyboard.
For $10, I might consider this product. But for $70, this keyboard is simply not worth it.

Why didn't you return it when you first noticed it wasn't functioning properly? Amazon stands behind their products as does apple.
