Really good deal

 

I got mine 4 days ago, and as stated a few times, there is an occasional issue with the keys not responding, just have to retype occasionally. The only true knock on this product I have is no UI to program the keys to do what you want them to do. other...

Gear Head 5500

 

For the price and if you want something different, I recomend to by it.

Very nice design. Slim, small, easy to work with away from the desk. Larger letters on keyboard helps those who have reading glasses. Downloaded sotware from GearHead has keyboard and mouse setup combo software

USB dongle is not very good. I had to put a USB extension cord to get it under the monitor. It works perfect now

Very poor quality

 

Terrible performance--hard to position mouse, mouse clicks only work sometimes, key repeats so much that it is useless.

Nice Combo with So So Range

 

Mouse has better range than keyboard. Used with HTPC from easy chair across room. Must hold keyboard at unusual angles to get input to be accepted which is funny since connection is by RF.

Sleek ; Nice tactile feel ; Good battery life

Wireless range is fair at best. I can't get more than 20 feet

Failed after 35 days

 

Gearhead offers a lifetime waranty, however you have to return it to them at your cost -- not worth the bother -- purchased a logitech to replace this one

Consumer review by:

Works

 

It works. Bought it for a home theatre pc, the range is pretty short for that application. Misses some keystrokes, the mouse is VERY sketchy. I wouldn't buy it again for this purpose, for a desktop or workstation package in close proximity to the...

Nice for a while

 

You don't want to know!!!!

Easy install, nice keys, mouse works great, etc

DEAD AFTER 4 1/2 MONTHS

Consumer review by:

Gear Head KB5500W

 

The keyboard unexpectedly died. Despite placing new batteries (10 to be exact) it never resurrect! From what another reviewer wrote this may be a common flaw.

Sleek low profile design, easy to set up and use

Unable to customize the keys on keyboard. Keyboard died

GEAR HEAD KB5500W Black 103 Normal Keys 15 Function Keys 2.4G Wireless Slim Desktop & Optical Mouse

 

I ended up buying this a few months ago for pretty cheap. I was looking for just a wireless keyboard but the combo was just as cheap. I used the mouse for about 10 minutes and didn't like the feel of it so I switched back to my Logitech but I have been...

Very nice looking keyboard. Very slim with a decent range. USB receiver is small and discreet. Really good battery life on keyboard... I use it every day and have only changed the batteries in it once in a few months

No way to customize any of the media buttons on the keyboard. Construction seems some what flimsy but I have yet to have my break (knock on wood!)
