Wired Aluminum Keyboard
Silver

Mac / PC / USB 2.0
Wired with a number pad
This keyboard is for the people who miss Apple's Wired Keyboard with Numeric Keypad. The Matias Wired Aluminum Keyboard for Mac has a beautiful silver aluminum case with traditional white keycaps, just like you remember. It brings you the 2 port USB 2.0 hub that you have always found useful, as well as the special Mac functions that you know and like. It has Matias scissor switches for a slim and comfortable typing experience. Of course, it also connects to your Mac by a traditional USB cable, hard-wired right into the keyboard.

Matias couldn't help but make at least one improvement to the traditional Apple design — they've added a volume control dial along the top edge of the keyboard, to give you more precise control of the volume of your speakers — but if you want to do everything the traditional Apple way, we also include volume keys on the keyboard too.

Rating: 4/5 Great keyboard but... August 20, 2020 Great keyboard and the two USB ports is an awesome addition, especially with the lack of USB ports on the MacBook Pro. Easy to setup, plug it in and it's ready to be used. After two months of owning, however, the letters looks like it's just been painted on and it's starting to come off. I constantly use the W key in my design programs and the paint is starting to chip off. It still works but I'm a bit disappointed with the quality of production on it.

Rating: 5/5 Better then the original October 19, 2019 I ordered the keyboard on Oct. 15, and received it on Oct. 18th. Very fast service with a great keyboard. Plugged it into my 2008 iMac and it worked right away. Has a good feel on the keys and has a volume control knob to make fine audio adjustments. Love this.

Rating: 5/5 I love my Matias keyboards July 26, 2019 I pre-ordered this keyboard when it was a new design. Waited five months to get it. Worked great for about ten months then the caps lock light stopped working. When I finally contacted Matias, the one year warranty period had passed. Nevertheless, Matias cheerfully replaced the defective keyboard with a brand new one. I have Matias keyboards for my Mac and my PC. My daughter uses a folding bluetooth Matias keyboard with her iPad. They are all excellent products. I recommend them to my family and friends.

Rating: 3/5 Frustrated by odd behavior March 21, 2019 I LOVE that it has the look and feel of the original Apple wired keyboard. It does that VERY well, sadly though one minor issue and one might be fatal. Because the Apple devices have a slightly unique USB connector, this one can't match that and didn't connect to an Apple USB extension. cable. No biggie.

BUT it seems like it isn't accurate. .There are times I'm typing when I get extra periods and spaces that I didn't add in. I thought I was getting "sloppy" but I don't see this on other keyboards on laptops etc. I didn't clean this text and see some of those artifacts as I'm typing. It's now a few months old but has been like this, I think since day one. It's hard to replicate the issue. Very intermittent but I need to be VERY careful ALL the time because of it.

Response from MacSales.com, Call Center March 21, 2019 Hello! Sorry to hear about any issues you were having with your Matias keyboard. One thing to check when you are getting extra key presses would the Keyboard settings in System Preferences. The Key Repeat and Delay Until Repeat may be set incorrectly and causing some repeat presses. Also, you can contact Matias for support as well. You can reach them at https://matias.ca/contact/
