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):

      Got this keyboard to work with my laptop when connected to an external monitor Works perfectly and the numeric keypad is great to have. I actually prefer that it plugs into a usb port as opposed to wireless...... My kids toys devour enough batteries as it is.

        For me it is very necessary to use the numeric keypad, and separate keyboards to stack not serve me because I spend many hours on the machine, so he recommended this more official mac keyboard for video and audio editors.

            Apple Keyboards have a silky nice feel to them. I wish they made a wireless version of their extended version as I love the 10 Key portion and use it all the time with Logic X!

                        Like all Apple products, quality is excellent, but being white, these keyboards do get filthy with regular use and are difficult to clean. The only reason I'm replacing the one I have is that it looks so gross and I just can'y get it clean. This time I also ordered the clear plastic cover, so I hope it solves the problem.

                          What a great keyboard. I recently moved from the Microsoft world to Mac and purchased this keyboard. At first I was a bit sceptic thinking it would be to small, but to my surprise, this is by far the best keyboard I've ever owned. It has small footprint but the keys are solid and no click-id-clack like the Microsoft keyboards I've used for years. You buy this board and you will not be disappointed.

                            I hook the keyboard up to my thunderbolt display that is in turn hooked up to my macbook.

                            It's hard to say much about a keyboard. This one is particularly expensive but it matched the rest of the Apple "decor" that I have going on in my computer nook so that's why I bought it. Chances are if you are considering this keyboard it's for the same reason.

                            I think that most of the Apple products look good and this is no exception. The keyboard is responsive and has a good feel to it when using it.

                            You can't adjust the tilt on the keyboard but it seems comfortable to me. Buy it if it matches the Mac Feng-Shui you have going on. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is because of the cost

                                        I bought this to replace the standard wireless keyboard that comes with an imac. That's a nice keyboard too, but it seemed to be using up batteries at a faster rate. So I opted for the extended 'wired' keyboard, which adds functionality to pro apps like video editing, etc. The usb is plenty long enough, and I especially like that it has usb connections on the keyboard, so I don't have to hunt for one in back of my imac on those occasions when I need one.

                                        Great form, great function...that's what Apple does!

                                          Love this keyboard. Great layout. Small size. Love the tactile feedback. Much easier to use than the built-in keyboard on my MacBook Pro.

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

                                            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

                                              Very easy to use and not so cumbersome, the Apple Keyboard is the ultimate tool for any Apple Desktop. It is a full keyboard which allows for complete use of the calculator and arrow keys and also has two extra USB 2.0 ports on either side of the keyboard for more external uses. If one is a gamer, than this keyboard is the one to get, in fact I would recommend this to any Apple user, period.
