    Some things not as good as previous Magic Keyboard

    Purchased this Lightning connector rechargeable keyboard to replace the previous model Apple Magic keyboard powered by 2 AA batteries. Unlike some reviewers, it doesn't bother me that the keys aren't backlit, as my purchase decision was driven largely by the longer rechargeable battery life. I find this newer keyboard a bit more difficult to type on compared to that older keyboard, requiring me to look at the keys as I type to a greater extent than I did before. For example, re-sizing of the left and right cursor keys makes it more difficult to identify these by touch. This newer keyboard doesn't seem as "visually ergonomic" either. The keyboard body (silver space between the keys) has a smoother, more brightly reflective finish than the older keyboard, while the characters printed on the keys are a lighter shade of gray compared to the older keyboard. In other words "readability" of the older keyboard given a quick glance was superior to this newer keyboard given my work desk lighting. Initially, I preferred the greater keypress travel distance of the older Magic keyboard, but have now grown to like the new keypress action. Without question, the keypress action of this newer Magic keyboard is vastly superior to that of my 2016 15" MacBook Pro. And perhaps a trivial observation, but the small open space underneath the older keyboard made it a little easier to pick up that keyboard and move it aside when necessary, as the newer keyboard lays close and flat against the table. However, unlike some reviewers, I like this "flat" positioning while actually typing, as it feels somewhat similar to that of a laptop.

    Not a whole lot to say about a keyboard but I like it! It's better than the first generation. I bought this to replace the first gen that came with my iMac a couple of years ago. This keyboard came out around the same time but they weren't shipping with the iMacs yet or came with the models that were at BB, so I felt a little slighted but got over it and used the default one. haha Fast forward to now and had a few rewards certificates, so I felt it was a good time to upgrade and glad I did. They recently came out with the Magic Keyboard 2 with numeric keypad, which I tried but it was a tad bent so I returned it. I will eventually get that one to replace my full sized wired keyboard from Apple that sits in my home office. Although I prefer having the full-size keyboard because it's easier to type numbers but I asked myself how much I really used it and if I really "needed" it on this iMac. I went with the smaller one because it's compact, smaller footprint and I didn't want to get a bigger desk pad, which the keyboard and mouse sit on. I like how I don't have to stretch far from my keyboard to get to the mouse and it's a space saver. Also, if I ever want to travel with this one, I like the size. It's easy to type on and the keys fell nice. Not sure what else to say about it. It has a good weight on it. It's really user preference, wants and needs.

    I wanted a iMac but wasn't ready to pay the iMac price O_o, so instead I decided to be creative and create my own iMac experience. I purchased the Apple Magic Keyboard and I am in love with this keyboard! It has everything I need and its so compact! I wish I was able to use this keyboard at work. It keeps a charge too! I've had it for about a little over three weeks and I have not had to recharge it. Great purchase! Perhaps when Apple gets more innovative and have more competitive prices, I'll switch out my iMac set up with MacBook Pro for an actual iMac :) FYI I have a Macbook Pro and also purchased the following items for my iMac set up (which also allows for dual monitors): Apple - Magic Keyboard - Silver Apple - Magic Mouse 2 - Silver Insignia™ - 6' HDDB15 Male-to-Male PC Monitor Cable - Black j5create - SuperSpeed USB 3.0 to VGA External Video Adapter - White AOC - i2779vh 27" IPS LED FHD Monitor - Black/silver

    Pros and cons but still excellent

    This keyboard is not perfect. I purchased it online, but did not opt for the English keyboard as I needed the German version. You'd think because the keyboard is advertised as "magic" that it would really surpass all expectations. However, in the simple process of connecting to an iMac, the device was unaware of its own language and mapped all of the keys incorrectly to English. Not something that you would expect from this type of product. On the bright side, this keyboard has been excellent. It is rechargeable with a lightning cable and probably only loses 1-2% battery capacity per week with heavy use. It rarely ever needs to be charged. At first I hated the shallow keys as I found that it was easier to make mistakes when compared to a standard keyboard. After one day of using the device however I truly prefer the key depth. Lastly, the style and small form factor (albeit subjective) are a huge factor in why I like this keyboard. It is so small and thin that it can easily be locked with the lock button and thrown into a bag. It is virtually weightless, yet I have never had an issue with it sliding on the desk surface. As it is made from aluminum, one would assume that it is durable and might last quite some time if taken care of. The device also works with AppleTV, which is great except the Siri remote pretty much negates the need for a bluetooth keyboard. Still, the range of the device is such that it works flawlessly.

    The original is better than the sequel

    I wanted to like this keyboard, but I couldn't even make it a week before I boxed it back up and returned it. I bought this keyboard as a replacement to the Magic Keyboard 1 and expected it to be a better product. I was, however, disappointed. The short travel of the keys was awkward at first and never got better. It even started to hurt as I typed on it, which was not acceptable. The size of the keys is also hard to get used to. I found myself constantly shifting my hands to correct placement and still hit the edges of the keys I wanted to press. Connecting is easy enough. All you need to do is connect it with your lightning cable to your computer and the bluetooth setup is done automatically. It's nice that you can charge the keyboard instead of swapping out batteries, but those are perks that will not be utilized as much as the feel of the keyboard. Compared with the original, which had easy enough pairing and efficient enough batter life that you wouldn't be able to remember the last time you switched out the 2 double AA batteries it runs off of, this is not an improvement. If you really want an Apple Magic keyboard, then get the Magic Keyboard 1.

    Perfect keyboard for my iPad Pro

    I’ve always wanted Apple’s Magic Keyboard, but without buying an iMac, I never found a reason to put the money down and actually get one. I got an iPad Pro a few weeks ago, and I didn’t want the Smart Keyboard (because I HATE the material that the keyboard itself is made of), and whenever I want to use the iPad to read WSJ or other news, I don’t want to have the Smart Keyboard dangling off the iPad or adding extra weight to it while it’s folded against the back of the iPad. I use the iPad in multiple ways. So I settled with a regular Smart Cover and this Magic Keyboard. Aside from having to carry around the Magic Keyboard in my backpack dangling around while my iPad is sitting nicely in its sleeve that I also got for it, the Magic Keyboard is fantastic. There is zero lag when iam typing with it, which is extremely rare. I’ll use the age-old saying that has been going around for years when referring to Apple products: it just works! It feels like my MacBook Pro (2010 - before they tried to get all fancy with the thinner keyboards, which are nonsensical at best, in my opinion). Wonderful purchase. Really happy with it!

    Apple does it again!

    Ushering in a new generation of products - this keyboard update is a long time in coming!!! Anyone who used the original Apple wireless bluetooth keyboard, knows how great of a design it was, reducing desk clutter, needing no wires, and running for (often months) on a single set of 3 AA batteries (later they came out with a 2 battery model.) Well, the major improvement this time, was a sleeker smoother design / thinner key profile, but most importantly, absolutely no batteries! With just a brief plug in with the lighting connector, your keyboard charges and runs optimally for extended periods of time (weeks/months depending on frequency of use.) My biggest complaint with the old model, was the batteries failing right in the middle of a project, and having to swap my AA battery rotation, and there was no way to use the keyboard during the charging, if I didn't have them ready. Never again will this be an issue. Simply use the lighting connector (any Apple user has this already nearby) and enjoy full keyboard usage while charging! Way-to-go, Apple!! Similar battery-less versions of the Apple mouse and Trackpad have been released as well, so we can say goodbye now to the recurring battery charging of the past!

    Great Accessory

    I carry my laptop from home to work and basically connect my laptop to an external monitor during most usage. This keyboard was a great add on to my setup partnering it with the magic trackpad of course. What I would say about his keyboard that either makes it a good or bad product would be the comfort of how it's positioned. Since this keyboard does "not" have the option to be slanted, it basically sits like a laptop keyboard which in other terms it feels a bit flat. Another thing was that they removed all extra spacing from around the keyboard, so it feels like you're going to type outside of it. This has been a minor difficulty for me, but I've been able to adjust to it, but at times still make errors because of it. Because of those two major flaws I'm giving this product 3 stars based on the price.

    Apple Magic Keyboard review: Should have called it basic
