Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on November 14, 2018
I am the ultimate Apple fanboy, dating back to the Apple II days as a certified Apple technician, and I've been in love ever since. However, while I really wanted to love this keyboard, it broke my heart.

Cons:
• There is virtually no tilt to the keyboard, and it's not adjustable. It's also very low profile (maybe 1/4" lower than the traditional wired Apple keyboard). Your experience may vary, but I found touch typing on something that is nearly flat is almost impossible.
• The keys are quite low profile, and don't offer much in the way of differentiation against your fingertips. Again, it makes touch typing very difficult.
• The key travel is very short. I don't get a satisfying tactical feedback when typing.
• Typing is noisy. The keys clack when you strike them, and they feel cheap.
• Expensive.

Pros:
• Long battery life.
• Cordless, makes for a neat desktop.
• Connected without fuss.
• Caps lock key is illuminated.
• Function keys are full-size.

Bottom line, I feel that Apple really blew it. It's no wonder that the original wired full-size Apple keyboards are now quite expensive on the used market. I won't be parting with mine.
