    Ladies and Gentlemen, some advice please.

    Before the new metallic keyboard came out I bought a white :apple: keyboard and it is great! Looks good, great to type on and is nice and solid. The problem I'm having is that however much I fiddle with the settings on OSX.4, it often doubles up on letters where I don't want it to.

    For example I could type 'would' and iit comes up as 'wouuld'

    Maybe its me - but if there is something I can do then tell me!

    If its the wireless version that is bluetooth. My old Logitech bluetooth keyboard did that (the one from the MX Bluetooth Duo set). I finally had to move to an RF wireless mouse/keyboard setup, which in turn made me have to have stupid cables/adapters plugged up to my laptop.

    I've also had this happen on WIRED keyboards where I had previously spilled beverage in the keyboard and that was the unfortunate aftermath even after I let the liquid dry out.

    Its a brand new wired one!Not a drip of coffee has gone near it which makes it all the more puzzling!

    I found that mine did that until I broke it in, it took about a month and a half of using it and then the issue went away.

    Thanks, I'll keep going with it. Maybe I just have to break it in gently!

    Same here. Except at the two month point I spilled a full glass of water on it and that was the end. Drying it out didn't help. Now I have a brand new aluminium keyboard and I love it.

    It takes up less space, the keys are extremely responsive and there's absolutely no "stickiness". I highly recommend them.

    I've used these in my local Apple store, they seem to be great keyboards! I like the MacBook keyboard and they seem to be just like that. Something for my Christmas list...
