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

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...

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...

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

Wonderful

 

Purchased this for my girlfriend to operate computer in the living room attached to a 50" HDTV. It works beautifully and was what I wanted for the right price range

Wireless ; Low Profile receiver ; Adjustable sensitivity on the mouse

The mouse has freaked out a couple of times, moving the cursor where it wasn't supposed to go. It hasn't happened often

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

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

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)
