Not Really Usable

 

I wasn't familiar with Gear Head, but I was glad to find a keyboard with a touchpad, and theirs was the best price. Ultimately, it's not a good value, because the device is fatally flawed. The backspace key is smaller than I would like, making it hard...

Works good but has a few downsides

 

This keyboard is ok. I like the volume and other controls for media since Im using this for my htpc. Worked easily and quickly out of the box using Windows 7 with Media Center. The touchpad is somewhat irritating to use, perhaps just my lack of...

not good for typing

 

Somewhere there must be a good wireless keyboard at a good price; that will work good. Over the last 4 years I have gone through 4 wireless keyboard to use with my HTPC - 2 addesso's 1 rosewill, and this Gear Head. NON have lasted a full year and each...

Good but quirky

 

Touchpad works great. Keyboard a little hit and miss. It gets the job done as a keyboard for projector video.

Great Product

Not for me

 

I threw it in the trash.

None

I've been a programmer/analyst for 20+ years and the keyboard is like my right hand. I find the key contacts are poor and a few of the keys are awkwardly placed

Best Wireless Keyboard I've Ever Used

 

Of course, it's the only wireless keyboard I've ever used, but it performs very well. I purchased this to use with a laptop connected to a 37 inch flatscreen and it works flawlessly from anywhere in the room (15ft x 12ft). As others have mentioned, it...

Junk

 

Good idea

Poorly executed. Does not work more than a few feet away from adapter. Track pad becomes erratic and unreliable. So, what's the point
