It's a keyboard, what more were you expecting?

I bought this to replace the wireless keyboard that came with my '11 iMac. It got this weird thing where the top row (qwerty...) would only capitalize using the shift button on the right and the bottom row (zxcvb...) would only capitalize using the Capslock button. What's even weirder is that I didn't have this problem when I connected it to my iPad, but it did the same thing when connected to my wife's '13 MacBook Air.

So I was looking for a few things in a new keyboard:
-wired
-capslock light
-backlit

This product hit 2/3. Other products I was looking at either didn't seem like they were quality products (macally) or were FAR more expensive (logitec, moshi), and I didn't feel like the lack of backlighting was a deal breaker.

One thing I noticed that most reveiws didn't mention is that the included USB extension cable has this weird notch on the female end so that it can only be used with the keyboard. I was looking forward to being able to use that with my iPhone charger to make the look a little more seemless (I currently have a braided silver extension).

It's not that big of a deal, but I just thought I'd share that with everyone.

As a grad student who writes a lot of papers, I appreciate a good keyboard. I prefer low-profile keys and a good, responsive 'click'. I don't know that I would have been happier getting anything but the Apple branded keyboard :)

-Cheers

This Keyboard looks quite similar to my original Apple Keyboard but it has some minor differences. The connector cables have a square design and it was assembled in China compared to Malaysia. My volume buttons don't work instead there is a volume icon in the menu bar that you have to use with the mouse. As for now that is all I have noticed and hopefully that is it for the differences. I guess that is what you get for trying to save a few dollars instead of buying from Apple directly.

    Comments about Apple Keyboard With Numeric Keypad - English (USA):

    This keyboard is everything I need. I use a 27" iMac and the wireless keyboard that came with it does not have a number pad. For the last few years, I've used a USB version keypad from our local office supply store. The numbers are faded and it has served its purpose, but this keyboard is SO MUCH better!

        I called in to special order something. Although the product was no longer made, they made every effort to find it, including calling the manufacturer overseas. I've been a happy customer of B&H for a long time and would highly recommend. As a bonus, as a California resident, there is no sales tax added to items bought here!

        Comments about Apple Keyboard With Numeric Keypad - English (USA):

        I made a mistake and bought the iHome version of Mac keyboards. The buttons felt insanely cheap and the whole thing looked like something I could pick up at Chuck E. Cheese for 100 tickets.

        Then I bought this one for the same price and I am much happier.

              The aesthetics of this are excellent -- and an improvement over the old basic Apple keyboard.

              The keyboard's function is excellent as well.

              I would only like to see Apple design this keyboard in a more ergonomic version.

                        This was a very simple set-up, just 'plug and play'. No issues with it all, started working from day 1 and is still performing as described. MUCH better than a clunky, noisy old PC keyboard I had used when my original Mac Pro keyboard went. I would recommend this highly!

                            This keyboard is definitely a good representation of general Apple products. The construction is flawless, although I did receive a defective unit the first time. B & H handled the issue remarkably and offered me a free return immediately and I received a new unit a few days later. Plug it to your Mac or Windows computer and you are done. Of course, this keyboard is not wireless so you should think about whether or not this feature is important to you. But considering the difference in price and the fact that this one actually has a numeric keyboard included, it seems this one is a far better deal.

                                I searched the internet looking for this keypad at a reasonable price with no success. I found many "compatible keyboard" offered for sale and a few "rebuilt" Apple keyboards but nothing until I stumbled on the B&H site where the keyboard was genuine Apple at a price that I had to check twice to believe. I ordered it, received it very quickly, and am absolutely delighted with the purchase in every aspect. Since I bought my IMac from B&H and was totally satisfied, I kick myself for not thinking of them when searching for a full keyboard originally. I could have saved much time.

                                Comments about Apple Keyboard With Numeric Keypad - English (USA):

                                Good: Xlnt compact full keyboard with 19 function keys and great tactile keypads. 5 stars.

                                Bad: There is no way to open the keyboard to clean it - it's glued together. More importantly, if you spill any liquid on it, it will fry some or all of the keys. 3 stars,
