Decent Backup Keyboard/Mouse

 

Has held up well for this past 2 months. It's a decent basic wireless keyboard, but if you are on your computer all day like myself, I recommend something more serious from a bigger brand. I'll get something a little fancier in a couple months and give...

Price is great ; Great replacement/backup keyboard ; Adequate Range ; Zero Compatibility problems with Win 7 Ultimate 32 or 64 (tried both) ; Mouse is accurate, responds well

Keys are quiet, but soft and require more effort to type than my noisy wireless OEM keyboard ; Sometimes keyboard/mouse need a key punched or mouse click to "wake up", it seems to "fall asleep" if left inactive for a few mins (not a big deal really,...

DESTOP

 

I TRIED MOVING THE KEYBOARD CLOSER TO THE UNIT, DOESN'T MAKE A DIFFERENCE. WHEREVER I POSITION THE KEYBOARD, I STILL HAVE TO TAKE OUT THE BATTERIES TO RESTART IT

LIGHTWEIGHT AND QUIET. EASY TO INSTALL

I KEEP HAVING TO TAKE THE BATTERIES OUT OF THE KEYBOARD TO RESTART IT. JUST MIGHT PUT THE OLD KEYBOARD BACK IN. IT IS ANNOYING. I WORK AT A COMPUTER WITH DOCUMENTATION DAILY

Keyboard fails, no support

 

Buy ANYTHING other than a Gear Head wireless keyboard.

Inexpensive, compact, keys work well except when the keyboard loses connection to the USB transceiver

The keyboard always loses connection with the receiver that plugs into the computer's USB port after a few minutes of non use. The only way to re-establish connection is to remove and reinstall the batteries. The little "ID" button on the back does not...

9 out of 10 Geeks approve

 

I definitely approve and believe it was an excellent choice for the price. I'm pleased!

Keyboard has a great fill and the mouse is perfect for my hands since I use both. The keyboard is quiet which is quite nice and a great change from my office PC. I needed a wireless combo for my media PC so I can kick back on my couch and watch my...

None just yet but give an update in about 30 days or so if I do have problems

So Far So Good

 

I would rate 5 eggs except for the spacebar. Its drastically louder compared to the other keys

Easy to install (Plug and Play) ; Small Receiver (usb stick) ; Quiet keys, except space key ; Good Range. At least 7 feet

Mouse is a tiny bit small ; Spacebar makes a clack when pressed and not quiet like the other keys

Consumer review by:

Easy and simple

 

Light weight, can be tossed around and wont get damaged. not recommended but....just saying....soft keys so they dont make a lot of noise. the mouse is simple enough so that all you have to do is flicker the on button under it and its working

None

Mouse wont connect right out of the box?

 

I love the feel of both the mouse and key small and light weight

The tech support for gearhead is horrible, I cant get my mouse to connect right out of the box my keyboard works fine its new batteries I have tried new batteries and re connecting i cant get the mouse to work anyone have any ideas

Consumer review by:

working great!

 

works great for my new silent pc behind my tv...

light, easy to install (for windows 7) and easy to use

naturally the mouse can be jittery at range. not a huge minus ; keys are very flat... personal dislike

Consumer review by:

Works pretty good

 

NOT a gaming board... I'd suggest you only use it for recreational internet surfing and basic PC usage.

It's very economical battery-wise. The 2.4GHz allows me to sit on the couch 15 ft from the TV and type

Some lag, sometimes key strokes are missed

Great Value

 

As other reviewers have mentioned, when the mouse goes into sleep mode all you have to do is right click once and it wakes up. I was very glad to see a nice, decently priced wireless keyboard and mouse combo where the keyboard doesn't have a ton of...

Mouse has an on/off switch (though it will go into sleep mode after a few minutes of not being used), great price for both a wireless keyboard AND mouse! Before buying this on here on newegg.com I checked out a few retail stores...and the prices were...
