Great Apple-like keyboard, hard time connecting – 79-Key Ultra-Slim Portable 2.4G Wireless Keyboard with Receiver (2*AAA) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
+ Real apple-like feel + high-quality plastics + Windows Layout (See pictures)
Cons:
- Fn + F3 (volume higher) doesn't work - Connecting it was really hard, make sure the distance between keyboard and receiver is as small as possible - Plastic bends a little
Other:
I had a really hard time to connect the keyboard, and the conclusion was that there was just too much interference when I'd put the receiver in the back of my PC, so now it's on the USB port on top of my computer case. The feel is like the Apple wireless keyboard, but it's still plastic. You have to type a little harder I've noticed, because (especially when typing characters like the V, B and N, because the keyboard bends a little. It's not really irritating, but noticeable.
Bottomline:
The keyboard it great to type on, but it's just not aluminum, and that makes a noticeable difference. Also, I think the price is not 100% justified. However, if you are looking for a Apple-like keyboard that types almost the same for a clean desk, this is your keyboard to go with.
