5.0 out of 5 stars Really a 4.5 Star rating, November 8, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: IOGEAR Multimedia Keyboard with Laser Trackball and Scroll Wheel, 2.4GHz Wireless GKM561R (Black) (Personal Computers)
I bought this keyboard for my HTPC after seeing good reviews on other sites.

Setup was a snap--plugged in the RF receiver and the keyboard worked right away with no other steps required.

I like the compactness of this device--it has full sized keys without the number pad on the right side. The on/off switch helps with battery life.

My HTPC is in the basement and the TV is on the 1st floor so the RF signal has to go through a wood floor and no problems to date. I am inside the 30' radius that's recommended.

I'm subtracting 0.5 stars for the trackball. It works good enough but feels cheap.

I use this only a few times a week to look for TV on the internet and it's great for that. For full-time use I'd probably look for a keyboard with a higher quality trackball.

I'm completely satisfied with this device but only because it gets limited usage. Can't beat the performance for the price paid.
