Just Get the Mouse; Look for Keyboard Elsewhere

 

If I were reviewing just the mouse I would give it five starts. Even if it means using a separate receiver, I would definitely recommend a different keyboard. That's what USB hubs are for. :)

LOVE the air mouse. Took some getting used to, and while I like the sensitivity high I had to turn it down for my dad. Tweaked the software buttons and gestures quite a bit to get it to my liking, but the fact I can do that is a plus, not a minus....

The keyboard, on the other hand, is another matter. Pretty disappointed with it. I have used it with four to five feet with an unobstructed view of the USB receiver, and I have used it maybe a little over ten feet away, again with an unobstructed view....

Gyration wireless products

 

Overall, not a good company to do business with!!!

Sorta worked when I first bought it

I actually bought a SLIGHTLY older model (Ultra mouse), but still paid $100 for it! Never sync'ed that well and kept 'forgetting'. Upgraded to Win 7 and- lo and behold - Gyration cut off all driver support for Win 7!! Do not trust a company that...

Very, Very Easy to Use.....

 

Buy ONE

Very, Very Easy to Use.....Just Plug the USB Reciever in to a USB port, press the sync button on it, then press the sync buttons on the air mouse and on the keyboard and you're good to go...takes....15secs ; I got this for my PC that's connected to my...

Full Sized Keyboard takes getting used to while on a couch

Consumer review by:

Not very durable

 

For a HTPC and the typical set the remote (mouse) on the arm of a chair or couch there is the usual high risk of eventually knocking it off. We have all done it and most remote controls are not affected by this, but this mouse has a sensitive gyro...

Compact keyboard-the old version anyway. air mouse is nice once you calibrate your hand to it

Drop the mouse one time and it will never work consistently again. Drop it twice and you will have trouble with it from then on. my mouse lasted 6mos before i dropped it the first time, after the second I had to use it like a regular mouse on a surface

Consumer review by:

Doesn't Work

 

None

Doesn't pick up wireless signal half the time even though I'm right in front of my computer

Consumer review by:

Great for vesatility & limited space

 

The Gyro mouse is invaluble in navigating presentations on the big screen.The compact wireless key board is great for using from your lap or limited counter space.

Garbage

 

Fix the problems or discontinue the products

none

absolutely garbage ; never works

Consumer review by:

Broke after two months

 

It was free to me, so tossing it in the trash wasn't that painful.

Decent for the first 2 months it worked

Terrible wireless performance. Sometimes the signal made it through one wall and 6' beyond. I used the mouse 5 minutes per day and the gyro failed after 2 months of daily use
