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

  Steve  21/04/2020
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.

The keyboard arrived promptly and well packaged. Works perfectly and is a perfect replacement for Apple's wired keyboard. Seems very solid and well made. I like the extra control round the back for controlling the sound volume. A nice touch that.

A note I initially plugged it into my powered USB 2 hub. Didn't work properly. Plugged it into the back of the Mac and its fine. I bought a new USB 3 hub as I'd been meaning to anyway. The keyboard works just fine plugged into that.

Only been using this keyboard for a few days, but first impressions are good. It's not quite as 'high quality' as the Apple equivalent - keys clack a bit more, and occasionally need to be pressed again - but for half the price it's pretty good, and the fact it is wired is the deal-clincher. I don't think Apple do a wired one any more. Would recommend and buy again.

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.

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.

Excellent keyboard which was delivered very quickly. Style and mechanism are not identical to Apple but the quality is every bit as good. Very pleased with the keyboard and your service.

I ordered this for a colleague when her Mac keyboard packed up, as I already have one and love it. The service from this company is excellent and the goods are always with you within a day or two. I have recommended once and would so again
