I love this keyboard. I have been wanting a wireless keyboard for my Mac Mini, but hated the cheap feel of the Mac keyboards. This one feels like a real piece of hardware.

Macally Bluetooth keyboard

By John G

Works fine, but be aware that you have to strike a key to start the pairing process between the computer and the keyboard on every restart of the computer.

Decent full-size keyboard for an Apple

By WolfHawke

Ever since Apple went to the chiclet keyboard, I've been struggling with the lack of standard keys, especially since I use Windows in a virtual machine on my late-2009 Mac (no one-key back delete!). This keyboard was a great find. It is a comfortable keyboard, with a good distance between the keys, excellent in tactile response and nice and lightweight. I find I can type almost twice as fast as on Apple's chiclet keyboard. Best of all it has all the keys that a normal user will use on a keyboard (including back delete and no special functions on the F-keys).

However, not all is flowers and sunshine. The white finish quickly attracts dust and begins to look grungy. It is also too long to take along in my already very big computer bag. The keyboard's Bluetooth connection is rather flakey (as others have noted) and it eats batteries at an alarming rate. These last two issues are easily remedied: I've learned to solve the reconnection issue by toggling the Bluetooth connection; the keyboard pairs almost instantly after turning it on again. And the battery issue can be fixed by using rechargeable batteries.

Overall, I've been very pleased with the keyboard, so much so that I have bought two: one for home and one for work.

Nice Keyboard

By ZlotnickDesign

Very nice keyboard. Don't understand why Apple never made an extended wireless keyboard.
Easy setup. Bluetooth. (Missing a couple of teeth)
I also like the little feet on it. Has all the letters of the alphabet.
Easy touch. Nice touch. Good touch. Kind of a cross between the old deep keyboard and the new flat ones.
Not totally flat.

The keyboard has one flaw.... like all the others, it hates coffee : )

MacAlly Keyboard User Friendly

By Julie

I love this MacAlly Bluetooth keyboard. The keyboard that came with my new iMac seemed cramped and I was always fumbling for the right key. The MacAlly keyboard has a soft touch and keys that are well spaced for a competent typist like me to access quickly. I love the numeric keypad. Connection to my iMac was simple and I was out of the box and running in less than five minutes. My only critique is that there sometimes seems to be a short lag time for the computer to "find" the keyboard; that is not an issue with my other Apple Bluetooth keyboards. Overall, I would recommend the MacAlly Bluetooth keyboard for someone who finds the standard Apple keyboard a bit awkward.

Almost a good keyboard

By Scott

Although there are a lot of good things about this keyboard, I especially like that it is specifically designed for mac, so they keys are arranged and labeled accordingly. There is one overwhelmingly annoying thing about this keyboard. after the keyboard and computer are asleep for a while (say, the amount of time it would take to step away and make a sandwich.) The keyboard and computer go into sleep mode. When that happens, the bluetooth connection between the devices is lost. When you hit a key to wake the computer, the light labeled "paring" flashes and flashes and the computer doesn't wake. My mouse will wake the computer. But once awake, it takes the keyboard a few seconds to reconnect and start working again. It drove me crazy, so I returned for an apple bluetooth keyboard. If you want to go bluetooth, dont use this one. Although I feel if they had a wireless USB, or their wired USB versions would do very well. If you want a bluetooth keyboard for ou mac, buy the Apple keyboard. Spend the few extra bucks for a keyboard that works immediately when you want to start working.
