5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars for the keyboard; 1 star for Amazon
By S. L. Patterson on June 29, 2016
I have several of these for various Macs around the place and think it's the best keyboard Apple has produced to date -- especially when paired with the newest Magic Trackpad.

That being said, I noted the box was not shrink-wrapped when I removed it from the Amazon box and then the keyboard plastic wrap was a bit askew. "This couldn't be used, could it?", I thought.

Then I tried to pair it with my MacBook Pro and saw the keyboard name in the list (see attached).

The good thing is that 1) the keyboard has no issues and 2) I could easily change its name, but the main issue is that I do not like paying for new items that have obviously been bought, returned and then sold as new.

1.0 out of 5 stars I paid for a NEW keyboard and got a USED keyboard
By K. Eoghan Schwope on June 19, 2020
I did not notice it right away... in fact it took a few months. I paid full price for a NEW keyboard. Then I noticed when I hovered over the bluetooth icon at some point that my keyboard had a name... and not my name, but the name of a man who doesn't even live in my house... the name of a man I don't even know. Jerome Estrella! The keyboard arrived "like new," in a shiny new Apple box with all of the write wrapping and typical Apple packaging. I never suspected a thing until I saw "Jerome Estrella." Now, after having had this keyboard for only a few months, I have to replace it again because I have keys that aren't working smoothly. I will NOT be buying another Apple keyboard from anywhere except APPLE. Fool me once, shame on you....

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Keyboard for iPad users who don't want the Smart Keyboard cover
By Kevin A Lawrence on July 20, 2018
I bought this to use with my iPad Pro 10.5. Love it. Pairs up via Bluetooth. I've had it for two days and have used it a few hours a day. It came with 85% battery, currently at 84% battery. Dropped a whole 1% in two days. Perfect. I love that it is a full sized keyboard, comparable to my MBP 13". I also wasn't a fan of the Apple Smart Keyboard (the cover with the keyboard cooked in). It was just too cramped plus I already had a smart cover so no reason to have two covers. I found out that I could use this keyboard when talking to an Apple Store employee while looking at iMacs. We paired a keyboard up to an iPad and I was sold (although I bought it on Amazon because it is $10 cheaper compared to buying it from Apple). Since it is an Apple keyboard, the battery life shows up in the battery widget along with the iPad battery life and Apple Pencil battery life. Screen brightness and volume controls on the top work with the iPad. I was also able to pair this up with my iPhone 8 but not sure I would ever do that in the future. If there would be one suggestion for iPad users who want to use this keyboard, I would buy a case for it if you are going to travel around with it, like me going to campus and putting it in my backpack. I purchased a Hermit Shell case and it fits perfectly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Software Developer's Review
By Tsk Tsk Tsk on November 11, 2015
I have the full sized Apple Keyboard with the numeric keypad, the original Wireless Apple Keyboard and now the Magic Keyboard. I'll go through each and list what makes the Magic Keyboard upgrade worthy.

Full Sized Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad
Obviously, these are great for those who need the extra keys. However, the problem for me is the length of the keyboard. Due to its length, it pushes the mouse or the trackpad too far off to the side for my comfort. I have since purchased an ergonomic chair ([[ASIN:B006H1QYBA Steelcase Leap Fabric Chair, Black]]) with highly adjustable arms, but prior to owning this chair, having the mouse so far out to the side hurt my shoulders. The other issue is the big movement required to reach the mouse. And of course, the wires. I hate wires. So I purchased the bluetooth keyboard from Apple.

Apple Wireless Keyboard
These were great. It had amazing battery life and the keyboard felt good. Due to the shorter length, the mouse or trackpad can be placed right next to the keyboard and you don't need an exaggerated movement to reach it. One thing that has always bothered me about the wireless keyboard was the angle of the keyboard due to the battery compartment. I kept wishing that it could sit flatter on the desk.

Magic Keyboard
It's flatter! My wrist is thankful for it. This alone convinced me to purchase it. The rechargeable battery is also a great improvement from the previous generation. Some people worry that the built in battery will need to be replaced, but I am fairly certain that I will want to replace my keyboard before the battery dies. And if it does die, I can always plug in the lightning cable and use it as a wired keyboard. Battery life is great. I initially purchased the Magic Keyboard back in 10/29/2015. It came with a 99% charge. It's now 11/11/2015 and still has 82% remaining. I use my computer A LOT because I work from home and write software for a living.

The much talked about key travel is also worth mentioning. I type around 120 words per minute. I was able to reach that speed on Typeracer (it's an online typing game where you compete with others -- type faster, and your race car moves fasters towards the finish line) immediately, but it just didn't feel right. The only thing I have to say is to give it a chance. Your brain with adapt to it. It feels like my fingers are using less force and doing less work. I don't notice it much anymore because I'm so used to it (that is not until I use another keyboard).

The other thing that really bothered me was the arrow keys. The left and right keys are full sized but the up and down keys are not. This kept throwing off my muscle memory. My fingers kept missing the up and down keys as I instinctively reached for them. Also, due to the lower profile of the keys, it was harder to get the tactile feedback to discern between the keys. The old Wireless Keyboard had a deeper groove separating the up and down keys so it was easier to sense the keys. I eventually got used to this, too, though it took a bit longer. Looking at the keyboard I can see why Apple made this design choice.

Finally, the keyboard looks better and sleeker than the previous generation. Attached are some photos for comparison.

Do I love it (5 stars)? Well, no, because I thought the original price was expensive enough but this one is even more expensive at $100 ($30 jump). But I really do like it, hence the 4 stars. I would not have trouble recommending it to someone who already has the original Wireless Keyboard.

Update 12/6/2015:
Someone asked if it's loud compared to the old wireless keyboard. I just tested it, and although the sound different, the previous generation is definitely louder. They sound different (older one has more bass). I'm not sure how much these will help, but below are the recordings for comparison.

Previous Apple Wireless Keyboard

New Magic Keyboard
[...]
Also, I haven't had to recharge my battery yet. I'm at 47%.

Update 4/29/2016:
Still loving it. The rechargeable battery is great. Even though the previous model has great battery life, I still find it annoying whenever I have to replace the batteries and I have none readily available. I ran into this exact situation last week (I still have the previous gen). The rechargeable battery is just one less thing to worry about.

Update 5/14/2016:
It's still going strong. The battery life is phenomenal. The letter S is barely visible because it has faded due to it being used so much. It's followed (in degree of fading) by A, C and E. This problem of letters fading has also been a problem with the previous Apple Keyboards. Since having used this keyboard for over a year, I have gotten very used to the short travel distance. When I type other keyboards, I have difficulty pressing the keys all the way because I'm so used to the shorter travel distance. If it were to break, I'd buy another one to replace it because I prefer it that much more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Piacevole da utilizzare, bella e leggera
Reviewed in Italy on November 17, 2019
La tastiera per me è fondamentale, uso Magic Keyboard 2 abbinata al Mac per fare lavori di grafica, quindi ne faccio un utilizzo molto intenso, ho preferito testarla sotto tutti gli aspetti prima di esprimere le mie impressioni che scriverò di seguito.

ASPETTO:
Personalmente mi piace molto il design, quasi interamente in alluminio, molto elegante, minimal e soprattutto sottile, più sottile anche della prima versione.

AUTONOMIA:
A differenza del primo modello che era alimentato con batterie stilo e le cambiavo ogni 2 mesi, questa è dotata di una batteria integrata molto performante che può essere ricaricata tramite cavo Lightning (quello dell’ Iphone) con una durata di 4 mesi circa.

NOTA NEGATIVA:
Manca la retro illuminazione dei tasti, dettaglio trascurabile per molti ma aspetto negativo per chi lavora in ambienti poco luminosi, una tastiera di fascia alta non può essere progettata tralasciando questi “particolari”.

UTILIZZO:
Il vero punto forte di questo prodotto Apple e forse quello più importante è l’esperienza di scrittura, i tasti rispondono bene anche durante le battiture veloci e premendo solo negli angoli, il feedback che restituisce è molto piacevole.
Gli unici tasti meno “comodi” sono le frecce in basso a destra, che a differenza delle tastiere standard con disposizione a piramide, ora sono tutti e quattro sullo stesso livello (come i nuovi MacBook), c’è bisogno di un po’ di tempo per abituarsi a questa novità.

PREZZO:
La Magic Keyboard ha un prezzo molto alto ma in linea con tutti i prodotti Apple, anche se ripagato dall’ottima qualità.

CONCLUSIONI:
Se utilizzate molto la tastiera che sia scrittura, grafica o qualsiasi altra cosa vi assicuro che la Magic Keyboard, anche se molto costosa, non vi farà rimpiangere i soldi spesi.
Unica pecca la mancanza di retro illuminazione dei tasti, per il resto tastiera leggera, intuitiva, comoda, di alta qualità e per me anche bella esteticamente.

Spero che la mia recensione sia stata utile per chi sia intenzionato all’acquisto.

5.0 out of 5 stars La tastiera perfetta
Reviewed in Italy on January 31, 2020
✅PRO:
– Digitazione veloce, sicura, precisa
– Molto comoda, i tasti risultano sempre facili da raggiungere e molto intuitivi
– Ottimo feedback del meccanismo a forbice
– Maggiore affidabilità del meccanismo a forbice rispetto quello a farfalla
– Prodotto di qualità estrema che vale il prezzo che costa
– Durata della batteria molto soddisfacente

❌CONTRO:
– Non si smontano facilmente i tasti per eseguire la pulizia e soffre abbastanza la polvere

A seguire la recensione completa:

📦SPEDIZIONE E PACKAGING:

La confezione è la classica scatola Apple completamente incelofanata ed originale. La scatola ha protetto bene la confezione durante il viaggio e si presenterebbe benissimo come un regalo.
All’interno troviamo la tastiera avvolta nella pellicola, un cavo di ricarica da USB a lightning, un manuale di garanzia e degli adesivi Apple.

📲FUNZIONALITA’ E DETTAGLI:

Scrivo al computer tutti i giorni per lavoro, la sera scrivo perché sto lavorando ad un libro e il weekend scrivo per le recensioni: ho voluto mettere alla prova la proposta di casa Apple sul settore tastiere e devo dire che mi ha convinto! Ora vi spiegherò il perché:

La tastiera si presenta ben solida, senza un graffio e come me la aspettavo. Posseggo un MacBook Pro 13” Touch Bar del 2018 con una tastiera con meccanismo a farfalla. Negli anni si è rivelata essere comoda e veloce per la scrittura, con la corsa limitata, ma poco affidabile con spesso dei tasti mancati o delle doppie a causa dello sporco e della scarsa affidabilità del meccanismo.
Conscio di ciò e volendo allestire una postazione di lavoro con portatile su un supporto ho acquistato la nuova magic keyboard, che ha i tasti con meccanismo a forbice. La corsa del tasto è leggermente più lunga di quella dei MacBook con sistema a farfalla e leggermente più rumorosa. Non è tanto il suono ad essere più intenso quando il colpo del tasto ad essere più nitido. A questo aggiungerei che è anche più soddisfacente!
La scrittura è precisa, veloce, le dita seguono perfettamente i tasti che sono grandi il giusto e si riescono a fare pochissimi errori di battitura.

La durata della batteria è fenomenale e l’appaiamento ai Mac è davvero istantaneo: si accende la tastiera, si preme un qualsiasi tasto ed appare una icona “connessa” sullo schermo e si è pronti a digitare.
L’interruttore è posto nello spessore destro e risulta abbastanza rigido da muovere: questo è un pro a mio punto di vista perché si evitano spegnimenti o accensioni accidentali.

La leggera inclinazione della tastiera verso la parte dei tasti funzione ad alcuni può piacere e ad altri no. A mio avviso non impatta assolutamente sulla scrittura e favorisce la lettura a colpo d’occhio soprattutto dei simboli posta sopra ai numeri: una tastiera piatta a volta subisce dei riflessi che impediscono la lettura se non si è proprio perpendicolari ad essa.
Non possiede retroilluminazione, ma i segni dei tasti si leggono chiaramente.

Ritenevo superfluo dirlo, ma non si sa mai, il layout di questo prodotto è in italiano, quindi con i tasti è, à sulla destra e con il tasto di invio a capo a forma di L rovesciata.

Comodi i tasti funzione per accedere direttamente alla regolazione della luminosità, al mission control, per controllare la musica ed il volume del mac: con la Touch Bar mi ero scordato com’era avere un tasto per questi comandi ed è più rapido ed immediato!

Ottima la luminosità del LED sul tasto BLOCK MAIUSC per ricordarci che stiamo scrivendo in caps: non troppo intensa da dare fastidio ma ben visibile.

Il prodotto è leggero, la durata della batteria talmente lunga che ci si scorda che sia un dispositivo a batteria ed in un paio di ore si ricarica. Dalla tendina del bluetooth del mac si riesce a vedere la percentuale di carica in modo da farsi una idea di quanto manca alla ricarica. In due settimane di utilizzo in ufficio (tempo di accensione stimato di circa 9 ore per 12 giorni) si è scaricata dal 100% al 91%.

Non sono proprio d’accordo con la scelta minimal di apple di integrare in tasti ravvicinati i quattro tasti direzionali perché spesso succede di sbagliarsi con quello superiore ed inferiore. Un prodotto solido e ben costruito che però soffre molto la polvere: consiglio di utilizzare un copri tastiera o di riporla con un panno per la polvere quando non si utilizza!

💸PREZZO:

Il prezzo di vendita dal produttore è di 99,99€ al momento in cui ho acquistato questa su amazon al prezzo scontato lampo di 85,99€. Non è uno di quei prodotti che si scontano quindi con un prezzo del genere l’ho comprata all’istante. Per quanto riguarda il rapporto qualità prezzo vale tutti anche a 100€ li vale davvero tutti!

⚖️VOTI e conclusioni:

Durabilità nel tempo: 4/5
Qualità dei materiali: 5/5
Precisione di digitazione: 5/5
Facilità di pulizia: 3/5
Lo consiglierei: 5/5

Grazie per la lettura! Buoni acquisti!
