Solid Package

 

Highly recommend this if you need a long range solution for a HTPC or some other living room/atypical PC setup.

Range, Response, Keys

Accompanying software is a bit clunky

Solid Keyboard / Mouse combo

 

great for the price and they match my sharp lcd and Logitech Z-4 40 watt speaker set perfectly. Sleakest keyboard I've seen in a while. Mouse charger/transmitter is a plus!

Great design, thin, I bought this set because I like the laptop keyboard feel over the clunky logitech usual suspects. I was surprised by the quality of the mouse. Dare I say good enough for gaming? Hot keys are a plus and work out of the box, no cd.....

Keys could be a bit better quality but I'm nit picking. Also the spacebar is obnoxiously rounded and elevated.. feels out of place, but it's nothing you can't get used to or fix with a wrist pad. Power and usb cables could be longer

Excellent range but...

 

It's really too bad that the keys stick as they do, this was a great keyboard while it lasted.

The range on this set is incredible. They keyboard is lightweight and compact, but in a manner that doesn't sacrifice usability like many small keyboards. The mouse works pretty well, and the docking station/charger is convenient

After about 5 months, nearly half of the keys began to stick. At first I thought this was due to the tightness of the key layout, and possibly some grit under the keys, but after pulling out the problem keys, you'll see that each key is held in with a...

LOVE IT!!!

 

When your mouse is out of batteries, and you can't wait for it to charge with the charging dock, just connect the AC adapter directly to the mouse. Now you can use your mouse while recharging it!

Awesome combo! The keyboard is slim and sexy and I prefer it over regular keyboards. It has a nice laptop feel which I like. It has good long range and I can use it from across my room with no problems. The mouse is great as well. It has a nice...

The keyboard feels a little flimsy because of it's slim profile. However, I dropped it a couple times onto carpet floor and it still works

Simply Amazed

 

i got this for mom and dad's new HTPC, but after i used this set, i want to keep it! IOgear is getting another order from me real soon!

Wow! Dock for the mouse to charge, 1 USB for both keyboard and mouse, excelent build quality with a great feel, keys are silent but not over sensitive, mouse has good response, and the range is as good as it says...at least is works for my practical...

I don't like the added icons on the task bar...oh well

Works Great!!!!

 

I bought a $100 Microsoft keyboard that said it had a range of 30 feet. I have my desktop hooked up to a 42" Plasma TV so I need to be able to sit on my couch which is about 10 feet away. The Microsoft mouse and keyboard would reach 5 feet without lag...

Great long range capability ; Price ; Ease of hookup

None

Impressed

 

Have been using this for two years on my HTPC. Never a dropped keystroke. Replaced keyboard batteries only once or twice. Have only had to resynch once in two years. Mouse works well, battery lasts for over a week without docking. A bit heavy for...

Feels like a much more expensive unit, sturdy and nice-looking ; Excellent range and accuracy ; Good battery life

None for my use

Looks and feels great

 

It really feels like typing on a laptop keyboard. I have used a laptop for years and when my work went to PC's I was given the keyboard that came with it and I couldn't stand typing on those huge keys. I'm much happier now

The space key is a little loud and sometimes you feel like you push it but nothing happens

More bad than good

 

I was able to connect mouse2 to base1 when mouse1 died.

Both keyboard and mouse look nice and are comfortable. Keyboard is responsive, sturdy and has very very quiet keys (think notebook keyboard). Mouse is responsive, accurate and has nice and effortlessly slides around my desk without a mousepad

I purchased 2 units of this item on 8/20 (just over a month ago), have had several problems and one that started today is the last straw ; 1. The Spacebar key on the keyboard is raised above the other keys, which takes a little getting used to (I still...

IOGEAR GKM541RA Silver/Black 104 Normal Keys 13 Function Keys RF Wireless Slim Keyboard & Mouse Combo

 

Overall its a great combo and well worth the money. The range is exactly what they claim, and the pros outweigh the cons.

This has been a great keyboard/mouse combo. I'm a huge fan of the slimmer keyboards and this one doesn't disappoint. The keyboard is slim and has practically whisper quiet keys. I've had mine for almost two months now and I haven't had to replace the...

The recharge dock requires you to plug in a separate power cable (it will get enough power through USB for the receiver end, but it will not charge the mouse unless the included power cord is plugged in). It's not that big of a deal, but it would have...
