Decent Build, Terrible Connection and Power Usage

 

I can not recommend this device as it fails to work. I had low expectations to begin with and the litany of issues I've experienced should serve as a warning to potential buyers.

The design is sleek and works well with my setup, I really like the layout and key feedback.

The unit drains AAA batteries faster than I can explain, I have bought a new 8 pack of batteries and have used a total of 7 including the one included with the unit in just a few weeks. The unit also loses connection easily, making it very difficult to...

Keyboard Useless

 

I received the set a few weeks ago to use with a laptop (ASUS, i7, Win10) connected to an HD TV in my LR. It seemed to work properly out of the box. Then I was away on business and now the keyboard barely responds making it useless. Re-booted the...

It's not for gaming.

 

Don't get this if you intend to use it for gaming. It's only for offices.

It works ; Good office keyboard

Slides around alooooooooooooot ; Mouse and keyboard aren't responsive ; Lags ; Courser teleports throughout the screen ; Got a bit upset when playing Warface

Can't recommend it

 

I bought this because the IOGear KVM I bought was supposedly only friendly with an IOGear keyboard. After some reading I learned that Logitech wireless would work fine with mouse emulation disabled on the KVM, so I bought that.. everything has been...

Small footprint, mouse is pretty decent

Stopped working after less than two months. Not sure exactly what it's doing but it's essentially like the SHIFT key is stuck. I called support who immediately issued an RMA, but when I read the details of the return, the shipping and packaging was up...

Depends what you want

 

I searched a very long time to find this kind of wireless keyboard and it ended up including a mouse in the style that I love! I just wish logitech make a keyboard like this or there was a receiver I could use for any name brand- the only logitch one I...

Just the right size and has the number pad I need ; Best wireless keyboard for the price ; Doesn't take up too much space on my desktop ; Comes with a mouse in my favorite style (have two similar ones from logitech) ; One receiver signals both devices...

This is not a con for the product but more of a con for my preference ; I used it for a month and ended up re-gifting it to my brother. The main reason for this is because I travel a lot, have a different laptop for work, and have mouses in different...

Slim Yes, Long Range Not so Much

 

Good product at a great price. Picked a refurbed model for a deal. Still have not figured out programming all buttons.

Very Good Product ; Quality Fit and Trim ; Slim Profile of Keyboard ; Good Mouse Ergo

Long Range is a questionable attribute

IOGEAR Z-GKM552R

 

This was an impulse buy when I saw this combo was on sale. Luckily I didn't waste too much money. I stopped using this set after a week or two. Can't really recommend unfortunately.

Inexpensive. Keyboard keys have a nice soft feel to them

Keyboard seemed to drop letters as I was typing. Maybe I just got a bad unit. Mouse has extra buttons that I had hoped were programmable but they were not. Mouse is too heavy and hard to get a grip on if you need to lift it to reposition on your mouse pad

Great keyboard and mouse!

 

This is one of the best keyboards I've ever used, and a huge relief after using the clunky '90s-style keyboard I was given at work. I'm able to type as quickly as possible with no lag or repeated characters, and it's truly whisper-quiet. The mouse is a...

None!

Not long Range

 

If you are looking for a average 2.4GHz wireless keyboard and have the transmitter right in front of the keyboard and mouse, this one should do the trick

Good Styling comfortable mouse, keyboard nice feel

Can not receive at 1.5 meters away when keyboard and mouse are below transmitter. If this were a true RF keyboard (Radio Freq) this wouldn't be an issue. but it uses the 2.4 Ghz band that most routers use.
