Matias Wired Aluminum Keyboard for Mac UK - FK318S-UK

High precision volume dial.
Perfect for users with external speakers, the volume dial gives you MUCH finer volume control than you get from pressing volume keys - though it has those too.
Specifically, the dial has 4x higher precision than the volume keys. That’s 64 volume levels vs. the 16 levels you get from the keys.

Mac-friendly function keys.
Just like an Apple keyboard, the function keys let you control screen brightness, volume, iTunes, and more.
There's even an Fn key, that lets you momentarily change the function keys back to their traditional duties, when you need them.

Matias Wired Aluminum Keyboard for Mac UK - FK318S-UK

This is based on an ACTUAL purchase of this keyboard- weird that everyone else gives it 5***** as it is not worthy of that - are these genuine reviews I wonder?
The Keyboard looked the part and functions well, I bought it because it was wired and half the price of a genuine apple magic keyboard.
BUT
only had it less than six months and already the printed letters on some of the more used keys are starting to wearfade off, so I am not really impressed by it at all, how long before the keys are readable? So I would not recommend this keyboard, only in an emergency situation to get you by - I will definitely replace with a proper apple keyboard if I have to do it ever again which might be sooner rather than later at the rate the keys are fading away - I have never cleaned the keyboard other than with a dry duster and I don't do a massive amount of typing either! Very disappointing.

Excellent service from the Keyboard Company. The Matias keyboard seems to work as well as the ageing Mac wired version. As usual, Apple do their best to make folk buy new gear they shouldn't really need. I have some legacy software that won't run on OS 10.11 (El Capitan), but the only available keyboard from Apple now is the Magic version, which is Bluetooth and doesnt work with anything before OS 10.12. Thank goodness for Matias.

I'm a massive fan of the old Apple wired keyboards, but enamoured with the new magic iteration. The £129 is extremely steep and I'd rather avoid bluetooth wherever possible. The FK318S-UK is a decent, if not quite perfect substitute. From a distance it looks identical, but in reality the dimensions are slightly greater (length ~1mm, depth ~0.5mm, height ~0.5mm), and there's a fraction more space around each key. Probably the biggest visual change is the USB plug, which instead of having the sleek apple design, is rather clumsy.

Usage wise, the keyboard is a definitely clackier and I do find myself having to hit a key twice every once in a while, but neither of these issues are severe enough to bother me and overall I'm very pleased. The volume dial is a welcome improvement too.

I was also delighted with the Keyboard Company's service. Delivery was much faster than I expected and the product was extremely well packed.

Keyboards look exactly as an Apple keyboard. But the touch is really not as good, I suppose because it lacks a bit of rubber to make it smooth and to ensure the user is actually pressing a letter. As a result I often hit two letters at once and it makes more noise. It would be fine for an inexpensive keyboard, but those are sold at the Apple price of wired keyboards and they are not as luxurious. Still the only option for wired keyboards.

Excellent high quality product. Feels and looks Apple. Changed because we wanted a Number Pad and also fed up with changing batteries in the iMac bluetooth keyboard.

Good keyboard arrived on time with full quality communications from company.
Sadly I don't buy many keyboards but if i did the Keyboard Co would get 100% of my business. Very impressed - can you expand to sell other things too?

Ordered a couple of keyboards after the death of almost half a dozen Apple keyboards over the past few months. They arrived in good time and are almost indistinguishable from the Apple originals. Very happy with them, they're built just as solidly and work absolutely fine via a Cat5 USB extender that we have in our setup. I also purchased it specifically for the built in USB that they've retained from the original which the old Apple mice work with. All in all very happy with the order. Thank you!

Good product, nice feel and softness. The volume pot and the two extra UsB slots are huge plusses. To me it's even better than old apple keyboard.

Very nice keyboard, indeed. Glad I got it in time for enhanced working at home. Very handy to have the USB ports built-in, and the volume dial has proven very useful. Packed very nicely and the cardboard case has been re-purposed as a cable bag.

The keyboard was despatched quickly, and arrived very well packed. It is absolutely perfect for my Mac, and the price was extremely good. Would highly recommend!

I am a Mac and a Windows user and I am looking for a replacement keyboard. I have been told to check with the 'Key board Company' so I did. After reading all of the user reviews, I am impressed with the 5 stars that have been given by people. I might give this company a try and see if I can add to the 5* ratings.
