Ge 98552 Multimedia Keyboard & Optical Mouse

Customer Reviews

An awful product.
Matthew Shobe
The problem with this keyboard is that when I type, it consistently skips letters causing me to constantly delete backwards to fix the errors.
Amazon Customer
The keyboard's range is pitiful, and I had to move the receiver from the back of my PC to the front to get it to even start working.

I got this keyboard at a local store, because my usual keyboard finally died. I hate this thing. It constantly skips or doubles letters. I am constantly having to change batteries. I wish I'd gone a bit farther afield and gotten something useful.
The mouse is great. The keyboard sucks. Don't waste your money on this.

I have used this keyboard for about 1 month now and I have gone back to my bluetooth one because it doesn't miss letters. I love the mouse that came with this set- and the nano reciever is a must have because you can leave it plugged in when putting laptop in a bag. The problem with this keyboard is that when I type, it consistently skips letters causing me to constantly delete backwards to fix the errors. I am not secretary fast at typing, but I can type about 60-70 words/ minute. If you are a slow typist then this keyboard will be perfectly good for you. When I slow down my typing it is error free.

i would like to say that GE has let me down. i bought a 98552 wireless 2.4 ghz keyboard/mouse and the usb nano receiver was lost. i called support (Tech Support:
Phone: 800.654.8483
Option 4 if prompted) and was told that i can not buy a replacement receiver.
i have several problems with this. first is that my $50 combo is junk and only 2 months old. but more over is that our landfills are overflowing with plastic devices like my combo because company's like GE would have me toss it out and pay them another $50 when they could simply sell me a new part.
the big question is: When will big companies stop lining there pockets at the expense off our planet? i would not recommend any GE product to anyone till they start putting there customers and the planet before there wallet.

signed: Buying a different brand

I rarely write reviews, but after picking up this keyboard from my local target and 'trying' to use it for a couple of days, I feel obligated to inform others of the keyboards un-usability. In short: 1) the keyboard doesn't work (e.g. skips letters, doubles letters, etc) quite routinely, 2) the keyboard is advertised as having a range of ~20ft or so, yet doesn't work at all unless within about ~3ft, 3) not only doesn't it work, it anti-works, meaning it works against you. Let me explain - keys routinely become stuck (alt, ctrl, shft, from my experience). This leads to odd behavior as button clicks and keystrokes end up creating very odd behavior. I actually spent the past twenty minutes figuring this out after researching on my smart phone and unplugging/replugging the device multiple times (the first time simply changed the locked key from shft to ctrl).

TLDR: 1) distance is much less than advertised, 2) keystrokes are routinely missed or doubled 3) command keys (ctrl, shft, etc) have a habit of sticking

Purchased at Big K for $20 near Weir Beach NH Aug 2010. With all the disappointed reviews, I felt it necessary to share my experience. Learnt early that the mouse battery can drain several times per year. Thus I power off the mouse when not on the computer over a day, after this, perhaps once a year batteries need changing. I do type at a medium pace and use the computer often. I remember the first month, the keyboard had intermittent missing key strokes. I live 2 hours away from the closest Big K, I didn't want to return it, so I opened the battery compartment and pulled on the battery springs to cause elongation that ensures battery snug contact. Note, every key stroke presents a sudden movement and if the battery does not have snug contact, skipping key will be experienced. The keyboard and mouse have performed way beyond expectation. it's been close to 3 1/2 years. Within the living room I have no problem typing and mousing. In front of my computer or in front of the large screen TV, very reliable. I hope this helps someone. I suspect the quality control should have picked the problem out at the factory.

Trust everyone else here: the compact mouse is handy, convenient, and works reliably. The keyboard, however, will be snapped in two across your thigh in abject frustration. I couldn't get it to transmit consistent keystrokes from more than ~18" away, and even at that it drops a keystroke or two.

Hey, um, GE? Time to apply a little Jack Welch thinking and cut this particular bottom 10% from the product line. An awful product.

It is now Year 2013. I would rather have the old wired up beige stock keyboard in my elementary school in 1993 than this piece of junk.
A good friend of mine is interning for G.E. this summer and I thought I would buy a G.E. keyboard to show my support at the local Target.
My friend is confident that this is just a licensed product that G.E. doesn't even make, just sticks its logo on it.
I like G.E. as a company, but this product is an embarrassment to Jack Welch.

I bought this keyboard/mouse combo today. I was trying to replace a decent/but antiquated wireless mircosoft keyboard combo. GE "claims" long range connectivity (26ft), - but it was nowhere near close. But that wasn't even the worst of it. There were two glaring issues right out of the box. First the mouse tracking was terrible. I tried over and over to move the mouse into the text field of my search engine - and when I finally did get the mouse to get to the box - the keyboard typed nothing but sssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss. Even when I'd erase the s'es, it would put them back. I clicked the s button several times, thinking it might be stuck - but no. It just sssssssucked. I boxed it up right away and am getting ready to take it back.

I did a search and visited several sites to see if I just got a dud - but it seems to be the consensus with all GE keyboards. GE needs to stick to making refrigerators and light bulbs and leave the computer peripherals alone.
