Iogear 2.4GHz Wireless On-Lap Keyboard

 

The Iogear 2.4GHz Wireless On-Lap Keyboard has all the standard features that make this remote keyboard a welcome addition to any home entertainment setup. However, there are more advanced solutions on the market.

Rechargeable batteries. Bottom conforms around lap. Rubber frame makes keyboard comfortable to hold and type on. USB dongle storage

Unattractive design. Trackball rather than touchpad. No backlit keys. Would have preferred longer charging wire

IOGEAR 2.4GHz Multimedia Mini Keyboard Review

 

Remember the days when your TV had a dial that you turned to tune in the three channels you could watch? There was no remote (other than us kids), but then there were no peripherals attached to the TV, either. Watching TV today is much more complex...

QWERTY keyboard for entering file names or URLs ; Backlit keys ; Mouse functions ; Compact size

Doesn't work or has limited functionality with some devices ; Doesn't have power keys to turn on your device, so you'll still need another remote

Tech-com 2.4GHZ Wireless Keyboard Mouse Combo

 

An affordable mouse-keyboard combo marred by bizarre design choices

Nano wireless receiver ; Mouse navigation keys ; Price

Sub-par multimedia keys finish ; Mouse unsuitable for left handed people ; Strange key placement on the keyboard

Consumer review by:

Awesome

 

This is my 2nd iogear wireless keyboard. Both are great. Long battery life. Stands up to the abuse of my two and 5 year old kids

None

Consumer review by:

Worked Perfect for me

 

This is a 2.4 GHZ device. A lot of wireless devices run in this frequency area. If you have multiple wireless devices they may be causing you grief. I don't have many in my house so I am not experiencing any negative effects.

Was very simple to install. Plug and play on Windows 8.1

None

Corporate Use

 

If you want long range and reliability, this is a good fit.

I am the technical support for a large corporation. We have been using ioGear long-range wireless keyboards in all of our conference and meeting rooms for the last 5 years and have had very good results. The range covers everything we have tried so far...

Sometimes users inadvertently turn off the keyboard and don't know how to turn it back on (but there are instructions printed on the keyboard... user error)

Consumer review by:

Solid Keyboard, affordable price.

 

Unit is very sturdy and types quite silently, keys are responsive as well as mouse. Good for casual to light gaming and i currently use it as my main set up with tropico and black and white two as well as a few rts's with no lag

none that I can think of, the key spacing feels like it's a bit off but that might just be me getting used to a new keyboard. The spill proof feature is great as my girlfriend is super clumsy and has already dropped it several times to no ill effect

Consumer review by:

Good and bad.

 

Overall, I am unimpressed. The range is great, and the mouse does it's job. The keyboard definitely leaves something to be desired. I bought this on the advice of a co-worker, as he has used IO Gear products for years. And yes, I would buy IO Gear...

Well, it's a keyboard/mouse combo. This thing has great range. Battery life seems reasonable so far. The mouse is one of the better ones I've used

This may just be a personal thing, but I hate the way the keys were designed. Namely the return key. It's shapd somewhat funky, and I ALWAYS manage to hit the backslash key when I try to hit the return key. Whether you're writing out code or just...

Consumer review by:

Good mouse, awful keyboard

 

The mouse was great but the keyboard needed new batteries every 2-5 days, and the enter key and the backslash key were switched in way that took some getting used to.

Small profile, excellent mouse, easy setup

Battery life, weird key placement

Consumer review by:

DO NOT BUY THIS!!!

 

The bottom line is, just don't buy this...read the other reviews if you don't believe me & remember...a company responding quickly to a problem is not the same as a company that makes sure there are no problems to begin with - Bad Quality Assurance =...

Simple, elegant design, tiny USB transceiver, great performance (when actually functioning) & good value (price-wise)

The keyboard goes into 'sleep' mode and will not wake-up without removal/replacement of the battery...EVERY TIME ; IOGear used to be a fantastic company, their products were not numerous, but always filled a useful/important market niche & price to...
