Backlit Wireless Aluminum Keyboard
Space Gray

Mac / PC / Bluetooth
Aluminum + Bluetooth + Backlit = Awesome
We took Apple's iconic aluminum keyboard as a starting point, and built from there.
Full-size in beautiful aluminum
Built out of aluminum, Apple fans now have a full-size Bluetooth keyboard that's backlit, matches the look of their system, and feels great to type on.
Wireless with a number pad
If you like Apple's wired keyboard with numeric keypad but wish it were wireless, this is the one to get (especially if you need/want backlighting).
Brightness control.
You can adjust the brightness of the backlight (in 10% increments) anywhere from 0 to 100% ... Hold down the −/+ backlight key, then press + or − to increase/decrease the brightness.
You can also select a brightness level directly, by holding down the −/+ backlight key, then pressing a number (1 = 10%, 2 = 20%, etc.).

−/+ backlight key and Esc turns off the backlight.
Rechargeable 1-year battery life — for Bluetooth
No expense was spared to make this the best Bluetooth keyboard possible. That includes putting a much bigger rechargeable battery in it than we had to — 1,600 mAh. That's 5x to 12x bigger than what's inside most other wireless keyboards; big enough to last a year, on a single charge.
Backlighting done right — 2nd dedicated battery
Most backlit keyboards stop working if you use the backlight too much, running the battery dry quickly — VERY inconvenient. For this reason, we have a 2nd separate rechargeable battery just for the backlight.

So, you can use the backlight as much as you like. If the backlight runs dry, the keyboard will still continue working off its own separate battery — for up to a year. The backlight battery should last 1 to 2 weeks between charges, in normal use.
Pairs up to 4 Bluetooth devices — Mac, iPad, iPhone, Windows, or Android
It may look like a Mac keyboard (and it is) but the Matias Wireless Aluminum Keyboard can do a few extra tricks...

You can pair up to 4 Bluetooth devices, easily switching between them with the press of a button, and the keyboard adjusts its layout to match each device (as you switch) — whether it's Mac, iPad, Windows, Android, etc.
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.
Stays on. Stays connected.
Other wireless keyboards will often power down and disconnect to conserve battery life — leaving you waiting, each time they reconnect. With its BIG battery, the Matias Wireless Aluminum Keyboard doesn't need to do that. It stays on, and stays connected. These simple luxuries — not having to worry about batteries, no waiting to reconnect — make it feel more like a wired keyboard.

Rating: 5/5 Very good alternative to the Apple Keyboard April 19, 2018 After several days of using this keyboard I have found it to be an excellent product. If you are looking for an alternative to the wireless Apple keyboard, this is the one to get. The backlight feature is also helpful in certain lighting conditions.

Rating: 5/5 Very nice April 5, 2018 Replacing my wired apple extended. Nice quality, very similar set-up to apple's -- Key action just slightly different. Nice to use with mac, ipad and a pc. The f16 - f19 keys are used for bluetooth device switching. I had some macros set-up on those keys that had to be re-mapped. Would highly recommend to people needing an extended keyboard.

Rating: 5/5 A great keyboard February 1, 2018 I spilled coffee on my trusty mac wired keyboard. Time to get a new keyboard. I tried a cheap $30 keyboard but did not like the way the keys were shaped or the way they worked. Matias to the rescue. I got a wireless bluetooth Matias keyboard with a layout just like my old mac keyboard but with improved key action and a wireless connection to boot. What a great deal!

Rating: 5/5 Very Nice Keyboard January 17, 2018 I needed a good replacement keyboard. I wore out two apple keyboards on two separate computers and decided to spend the money to get a really good one, though I think the wired keyboards from apple are also nice. Also, need the numeric pad. Don't really care about the bluetooth part. This keyboard is worth the money. It has a feature where you can connect to multiple devices. There are four extra buttons. You push one, and you're connected to another device i.e. one for your main computer and one for your iPad. I suppose you could take it from home to work and use it because it's so nice.

Rating: 5/5 Better alternative to Apple Wireless Keyboard December 21, 2017 Its good to know that we have a better alternative to the Apple wireless keyboard. This device can hook up to 4 different BT devices with separate buttons for each, ~and~ it gives you a full set of F keys to boot! Rechargeable battery instead of stupid replaceable batteries.

Rating: 5/5 FUNCTIONAL WITH IMPRESSIVE PACKAGING December 18, 2017 Keyboard worked well right out of box (it had a small charge in the battery upon delivery). After charging for about 5 hours, the unit immediately connected to my MacBook Pro (late 2011) running El Capitan.

I was especially impressed with the product's packaging. Had I not known it was a non-Apple product, I would have guessed it was from Apple. This box even comes with a carrying handle.

Rating: 5/5 Great product October 23, 2017 Absolutely love this keyboard, it's exactly what I've been looking for since I got a Mac. Well designed, easy to use and set up and much cheaper than what Apple charges for a similar product. Especially enjoy the fact that it holds a charge for so long, much longer than the Apple unit. My only wish is that it would show the charge remaining in the Bluetooth menu like the Apple keyboard.

Rating: 4/5 It's a nice keyboard, but... July 10, 2017 I bought this keyboard to replace a Logitech solar keyboard for Mac, which I loved...and which simply died one day. This Matias keyboard looks very similar, but uses bluetooth to connect. The looks are quite nice, matching my iMac perfectly. I like the lighted caps lock key too. My one criticism is that the keyboard if fairly noisy when typing: lots of clicks when depressing keys. Both the wired Apple keyboard and the Logitech solar were wonderfully quiet. I can't say the same about this keyboard. Looks: great. Variety of features and keys: great. Noise when typing: it certainly could be made much quieter...then it would be awesome.

Rating: 4/5 Good keyboard - but noisy June 26, 2017 The keyboard itself is great. Love the full number keypad. Only complaint is the keys are noisy and not a great touch. Squeaks occasionally. Probably should have spent extra and got the Apple keyboard that much quieter and has a better touch.

Rating: 5/5 Awesome and surprising. June 21, 2017 No cord stays charged forever feels just like the real board. I do hope they will make one with the new keyboard thats on my 2016 MBP 15", but it's still great.

I covered the off button with scotch tape, it's a bit easy to hit it when moving the board. This surprised me, I type a whole row of text then noticed the board was turned off just before I typed. When I turned it back on all I types appeared one letter at a time, fast. Apparently, the battery had a residual memory of some kind.

I have had it a few months and only charged it twice, not because it died either, just to be safe. Very impressed.

Rating: 4/5 Great keyboard for Mac, Windows, eh January 2, 2017 Recently was looking at purchasing a new keyboard for my new MacBook Pro, since the last one I had, was from Apple, but it was the older wireless keyboard, and was having all kinds of issues connecting to bluetooth and could not connect at all using Windows (via Bootcamp). I looked online for several weeks, and after watching some videos on YouTube, decided to give the Matias keyboard a try. The product overall has a great build quality, the aluminum makes the keyboard feel very premium and solid. Setup was simple enough, the only issue I have had, is that it does not connect automatically when I start using my computer, I have to press a key so that they bluetooth kicks in, might be a battery saving mechanism, but still would love it to just connect. I was also looking forward to using it via Bootcamp on Windows, but have yet to be able to get it to connect, don't know if its a Windows issue or a keyboard itself issue. Will keep trying to make ti work, might have to do with the drivers. Regardless I am loving the keyboard, and love that it also comes in different colors to match the newer Macs.

Rating: 5/5 Comfortable, responsive, doesn't show dirt! December 18, 2016 I love this keyboard. The keys have enough resistance to make it feel like you're pressing but not so much that you have to add more pressure than normal, at least for me. I got the black buttons, and now I don't have to worry about cleaning the keys all the time. It was simple to connect to my mac too. LOVE IT!

Rating: 5/5 Wonderful keyboard September 26, 2016 I bought this keyboard because I wanted a wireless keyboard for mey Mac with a numeric keypad. The standard Mac bluetooth keyboard lack a numeric keypad, and has the tiny arrow key cluster nestled under the right-hand shift key. So far after a month, this keyboard is the perfect companion to my Mac.

Rating: 5/5 Solid & Fully Functional September 26, 2016 Nice solid Aluminum keyboard with all the keys in the proper places. My 5K iMac reconizes it immediately and unlike when I had a separate key pad I do not have to wait for two blue tooth devices to be connected before I type in my password. I highly recommend this keyboard to those who miss having a wireless full keyboard set up with all the Apple keys. It even comes in different colors matching the latest iphone or ipad colors. Thank you Matias for making this keyboard

The only con I can think of is that the battery will last so long I might loose the usb recharging cord that came with it. Fortunately even if I do loose it it is a standard usb connection.
