I actually tested writing an email first, and I can type just as fast as I normally can. That's probably because it is so similar to the normal Apple wireless keyboard that I use at work. I was looking for a dedicated iPad keyboard that let me type as well as I can, and this does it. The special iOS feature buttons are nice, too, and as far as I can tell all the usual buttons work as expected (e.g., option+arrow to navigate words, shift+arrow to select ranges, tab, etc.).
Note that it is not actually aluminum; the top panel is just painted that way, but the benefit of this is that it is lighter than the Apple keyboard, which is important for portability. I got this keyboard specifically to have a regular keyboard to keep in my bag in the off chance I want to type something lengthy on the iPad. It looks nice, regardless.
I have it sitting on my lap, and it is fine that way. It has rubber feet, and appears to rest evenly on a surface. The special iOS buttons work as expected.
As others have mentioned, having the real on/off switch is important if you're going to be tossing it into a bag. Time will tell how well it wears.
The keys have good resistance, and I suppose it may be just a tad louder than the Apple keyboard, but not bad. This is a great, affordable alternative, and is better in some ways for this purpose than the Apple keyboard.
Remember it's $20 - so at 4 stars you really can't go wrong.
This keyboard lives up to it's marketing billing. It's light weight, really aluminum to the feel; just like Apple's version of the wireless keyboard. Furthermore, it's rechargeable.
I have 3 pet peeves about it:
1- The keys are not perfectly rounded and are not as stable when you place your fingers on them; they feel a little "clickity". My fingers are sensitive to these details (ie: this is not a usability issue, b/c I can type on it very well). Still, certainly not as smooth as the keys on Apple's wireless keyboard. The SHARKK keyboard keys feel is still more "Plastic" than smooth like it is on the Apple's Wireless keyboard.
2- Disconnection and time to re-connect: In order to conserve power, the keyboard disconnects often. I've measured it at about 1 min after inactivity. Now that may seem fine, except that in some cases, if you're using tactile input (like a Magic track pad) and other input tools, it's possible for the drive/firmware to know that the user is still there and may need the use of the keyboard and not disconnect. Why is this an issue? b/c it takes roughly 3 seconds before the connection is re-established. You're there waiting when you may be used to typing and jumping back off to the track pad or other input mechanisms. So it can disrupt the way in which you work/flow. It certainly does for me.
3- Finally, when I am holding down the Control AND Command keys at the same time and using the arrows to scroll though applications (Excel and Chrome tabs, for example), I have to depress one of the control/command keys and then re-press them to keep scrolling. I don't have to do that with the Wireless Mac Keyboard. It's an inconvenience, not a showstopper.
If they can fix the above items, then this would be much better than the original wireless Mac Keyboard (unless you want the Apple logo) since it is re-chargeable & costs only $20.
- Size: The keyboard is standard sized, which I prefer. It matches perfectly with my laptop's keyboard. I like this because it makes adapting to it much easier than trying to use a tiny keyboard.
- Frame: It's a nice combination of metal/plastic that has proven very sturdy. I can throw it in my bag along with everything else and not worry about it breaking.
- Battery life: I've been using it fairly constantly for a week, and the two AAA batteries seem to be chugging along just fine.
- Range: I can get a decent range from the iPad without losing the connection. People complaining that they lose the signal may just be expecting too much from range.
- Extra keys: There is extra functionality built into this (function keys can order your tablet to do things), but no documentation came with the thing telling me what they are for.
- Positioning: Because of its size and the raised part on the back, which are great when used on a flat surface, it's a little harder to use on your lap. I tend to keep a legal pad around and place it on top of that if I am not working from a desk in order to avoid having to balance it on my legs.
Overall, I think, in my experience, the pros far outweigh the cons. No problems so far, and I'll probably be buying another one of these before too long to keep at the office.
The difference in price is not worth the quality and the frustration every time I use this keyboard. After using this product for a week, I finally decided to return this keyboard, and buy the apple keyboard.
