Great Apple-ish Keyboard for a Fraction

By Javier
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-02

After months waiting, I finally got my hands on the Xcellon Wired Mac Keyboard, Silver, USB-A to pair it with a MacBook Pro 2012 and my HP M27fq monitor (from B&H). The Good: Solid aluminum, Apple-ish look matches perfectly with any silver Mac. Very stylish, unconventional rounded keys have a subtle dimple and are smooth to the touch. The feedback while typing is firm but not noisy. The two USB-A ports are a great plus; no need to juggle for the ones on the computer! Silicon padded feet give excellent stability and the rear ones allow for inclination. The Not So Good: The Caps Lock light is at the upper right, rather than next to the key itself. Also, the extra Function key (next to the Control key) is a bit annoying. Still, I can live with that. The No Good: The Power button does not turn on my MacBook.; It only allows Sleep and Shut Down. I was told it would work, and that was the main reason I chose this keyboard. For this, it only gets 4 stars. The Bottom Line: The Xcellon Wired Mac Keyboard is a fairly priced alternative to the original pricey fruit one. Materials, construction, finish and feeling are right on. So far, it seems to be a very good choice.

Great Keyboard

My new iMac came with a small, smart keyboard. I didn't want to use bluetooth, and love this large keyboard with all its fancy extras and its ability to wire into my computer.

No lag and no sticky keys. Replaced an old 2014 vintage wired Mac keyboard with this after my space bar was sticking on my old one. Works well and matches my m1 Mac mini pretty well. Can plug my mouse right into it too like on my old one. No worries with this keyboard.

Excellent Apple Alternative

This keyboard has a similar feel to the one that came with my iMac. The keys are raised a bit more, and a more rounded shape but the 'scissor' style action is very similar and I've been able to easily adjust in a few days. At less than half the price of the comparable Apple version and considering the performance and style of this keyboard, it's an excellent option. Just be sure you choose the right connector style for your computer so your experience is plug-and-play the minute you take it out of the box.

Excellent quality Mac Keyboard. Recently bought second one.

The Xcellon Wired Mac keyboard is really nice. Noticeably better than the Satechi Aluminum USB Wired Keyboard with Numeric Keypad that it replaces. You can tell by the feel, it's a better, more solid keyboard. It has nice rubber pads on the bottom and extendable feet, also with rubber pads. Stays in place. Works well. Comfortable to type on. Two USB ports. Well packaged. Easy decision to buy the second one.

Really Neat Apple-ish Keyboard at a Great Price

After waiting for months, my Xcellon AL MAC KEYBOARD W/2 USB (USB-A/SILVER) is finally here! The Good: Really nice look and feeling. Its solid aluminum frame in a frosted finish goes perfectly with any silver aluminum Mac. The keys are stylish; rounded, smooth to the touch and with a light indentation. Nice feeling and feedback when typing. Can be raised or lay flat and has two USB-A ports. The So-So: The Caps Lock indicator light could have been placed next to the key itself, rather than on the upper right. But I can live with that. The Not-So-Good: The main reason I was after this keyboard was that it featured a Power Button. Before purchasing, I asked in the Q&A if I could turn on a 2012 MacBook Pro with this keyboard and the answer was Yes. Unfortunately, that is NOT possible. The power button on the keyboard can ONLY put the laptop into Sleep mode, Restart it and Shut (it) Down. Despite all this, I really like this keyboard very much and will keep powering the laptop the usual way. If this is not a deal breaker for you, this is probably the best fairly priced alternative to a pricey original Apple wired aluminum keyboard.

Great (When It Works)

I purchased this keyboard at the start of lockdown in March 2020 since I wanted a numbered key pad to go with my Mac since I was going to be working from home. The keyboard worked great for a while and then one day the space bar decided to stop working. This was the start of a love/hate relationship with this keyboard. Because just like it one day decided that the space bar would stop working, it would suddenly work again and I'd have no issues for several more weeks. A couple of weeks later, I'd type, get up to refill my coffee and return to some letters suddenly not working, needing to unplug the keyboard until further notice. Great keyboard when all the keys are working. Pure rage when the space bar and/or keys stop functioning mid-email.
