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.

The best Apple keyboard ever!

By Reseda Russ

from Queen Creek, AZ

Verified Buyer

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

You can't go wrong with this keyboard. The feel is perfect. Typing is easy. It's small enough to fit in the space you have for it. It's a complete keyboard with numeric keypad and standard directional keys. It's inexpensive. What are you waiting for? Do it. Go ahead, you'll be glad you did. Really!

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

This does exactly what I need it to, it looks good, and works perfectly with my MacBook Pro Retina 15". The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is that it's a little pricey for a keyboard. But what's new when you use Apple products, right?

    Prior to this purchase I used a number pad with the magic keyboard and that just didn't work well. While I wish this keyboard was wireless it is a big plus. Thanks BH I can get photo equipment and more right here.

    Extended Version of Factory iMac Keyboard - But Corded

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

    The keyboard that comes with the iMAC does not have extended keys, such as the 10 key number pad. We need the extended keyboard to handle keyboard shortcuts for video editing. This keyboard is essentially the same as the one that comes with the iMac except for those extended keys...and the fact that it is not cordless.

    Bonus, the keyboard has a USB port built into it.

      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.
