Pros The reviewer is incorrect in criticizing the keyboard for a lack of USB ports.
Cons Apple's version of the wireless keyboard does not have USB ports. Only the wired Apple keyboard has USB ports. BTW, those USB ports are low power ports (unless used with the Al iMac), which means no external hard drives and similar devices.
Summary Being a wireless keyboard, it is not be possible to include USB ports on the keyboard.
There aren't any wireless keyboards that have USB ports, which makes sense considering that in order to have USB ports on a wireless keyboard would need to overcome two major problems:
1. not enough power available to power the ports
2. data from the port cannot travel wirelessly back to the computer
Hence, USB ports on a wireless keyboard would serve no purpose and that's why they aren't on this or any other wireless keyboard.

Pros Deeper keys with curved surface. More like a regular typewriter than the chiclet-style of Mac keyboards.
Cons One key has fallen out several times during the first several months of use. The keyboard does not strike me as solidly built, either overall or in the details, compared to the original-equipment iMac keyboard.
Summary It makes a good initial impression, but don't be surprised if the honeymoon is short-lived and your attachment to your original Mac keyboard goes up accordingly.It's true that USB ports are not an option on a wireless keyboard, but some prospective consumers may not register that omission or may not realize how much they can be missed until using a keyboard without them. It's a trade-off, at least, that deserves consideration before purchase.

Pros Don't really care about how it works or if I even like t.
Cons No issues - I don't even own one..ha
Summary What an idiotic statement about there not being a built in USB port - On Wireless Keyboard! ! ! How uninformed about life are these people when something like that is made ? It's like saying, a VW Rabbit has an insufficient Tow package...Of course it won't ! ! Losing any appreciation for product reviews from these dweebs....
