5 out of 5 eggsWonderful

Pros: -Wireless
-Low Profile receiver
-Adjustable sensitivity on the mouse

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

Other Thoughts: 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

5 out of 5 eggsWorked Perfect for me

Pros: Was very simple to install. Plug and play on Windows 8.1.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: 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.

5 out of 5 eggsCorporate Use

Pros: 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 and our user community has not experienced any problems.

Cons: 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).

Other Thoughts: If you want long range and reliability, this is a good fit.

5 out of 5 eggsworks better than expected

Pros: the key board works 20 feet away with no problems through my hallway. The mouse worked 26 feet away and the dongle was only 9 inches off the floor. in my computer cabinet I did no setup it just worked from those distances without tweaking or moving anything and I have many obstacles in the way. I tried other wireless setups and could not get them to work outside of the bedroom. The GkM552mr worked remarkably out of the box

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I am elated at the performance of the keyboard and mouse. I have logitechs which I loved prior to getting the io gear I have used logitechs for over 10 years and i still love them but the io gear is on a higher level it responds immediately to the touch which the logitech does not come close to. I got used to logitechs responiveness but i was surprised to see how much faster the iogear was

1 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely Terrible

Pros: It looks somewhat nice and lightweight but like the stereotypical popular girl in high school, that is all it has going for it.

Cons: You have to be like 3 inches away from the dongle for it to work and even then its intermittent. Its terrible, absolutely terrible, never have I been compelled to actually write a bad review as this one.

I tried different USB slots, I tried restarting, research was no help. I will say it did work at a range of further than four inches for a second then quit. Again repeated the steps after that to no avail. I really hope I can get my money back.

IOGEAR I have seen your responses in other peoples reviews and I must say I do admire companies that actually look through reviews and offer to help. However, you present your self in the most uncaring manner. Also, you always say "it shouldn't work like that". YOU DON'T SAY! You think I would buy a product if on the front it said "NEW FEATURE PLUG AND NOT PLAY, guaranteed to not work and you don't get your money back". I would hop on that about as fast a tortoise swimming through molasses in winter after he just smoked a whole bag of weed. Seriously I know know why you call your selves IOgear, I OWE GEAR. You product is about as terrible as that pun I made.

3 out of 5 eggsThis is a good product, and a bad product.

Pros: 5 button mouse, very smooth movement on the mouse as far as how easy it slides compared to my first mouse. My keyboard doesn't seem to fall into eternal sleep like described in other reviews. KEEP KEYBOARD PARELLEL TO THE FLOOR TO TYPE!

Cons: The keyboard MUST be flat!!! Do not try relaxing and kicking back in the recliner and typing with your keyboard tilted it will not work well at all. I just figured this out because i was about to throw it across the room and I was going to show my girlfriend how bad it was and i put the recliner down putting my lap in a parrellel position to the floor and it is working like a normal keyboard. ery glad i figured this out because I was about to hulk out on this keyboard. still very upset I spet 40.99 and now it is 36.99. sorry for my gramatical mistakes but you can manage to read it...The main thing is u gotta keep the keyboard flat!!!

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for the inconvenience. Try placing the USB receiver in a front usb port of your computer and see if this corrects the issue are having. It is possible that your body is blocking the signal however we have duplicated this problem here. To better service you and understand your set up, please feel to contact our customer support at 1-866-946-4327 or email us: support@iogear.com. Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

5 out of 5 eggsA little flimsy, but otherwise very good

Pros: great battery life, micro sized receiver, good range, good responsiveness

Cons: a little flimsy, but still holding up.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this as my previous keyboard was stolen along with my computer.
So far it was dropped once onto a hardwood floor and is seems a little bit weak as far as the plastic, but it does work well and over a very far distance if needed.
I like how the mouse can run on one battery since I lost one of the batteries when I dropped it.
Yesterday the batteries that came with the keyboard finally died, the mouse is still working on it's original single AA battery. That's about 8 months on the included batteries.
It's very responsive for a wireless unit and I am happy at the micro size of the receiver which is much nicer than my previous unit which was the size of the mouse.
I was thinking about picking up another one, but maybe after the holidays.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Light weight, mouse fits my hand well, no hassle to setup

Cons: My first day of use was perfect, but when I turned on the computer the next day, at random it would think I was using keys that I wasn't. E.g. Pushing Ctrl would bring up the Start Menu, pushing W would give me a J. It was just weird. Still not sure what is causing it. If it continues I will probably end up returning it and getting a different one.

Manufacturer Response:

First, thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for your experience. The product should not behave as you described. Please contact our customer service at email: support@iogear.com and let us know in more detail on when and how you’re having this experience.

3 out of 5 eggsNot spill resistant. 1 spill, fried.

Pros: Mouse is comfortable and works great. The range in my living room is 15' and works great for both the keyboard and mouse. They don't have to have a direct line-of-sight to the USB receiver either. I like how each is lightweight and the buttons on both work nice. Battery life seems pretty good too, at least with the mouse. Not sure about the keyboard for reasons noted below.

Cons: The first week of owning this, my roommate spilled his soda on the keyboard and it was ruined. Only two keys would work. The advertised "Spill-Resistant" on the box is bogus in this case. I looked inside the keyboard and multiple circuits were fried. Iogear customer service agreed to look at the keyboard as a replacement if I shipped the keyboard/mouse combo to them. The cost of shipping (each way) and no guarantee it would be replaced wasn't worth it since the overall price is $40 or less shipped most places. Iogear seemed helpful, but my falsely advertised keyboard never got replaced and they closed my warranty case in a few days, before I even made a decision on what to do. Not all their doing I'm stuck with a bunk keyboard, buying online and having a clumsy roommate are at fault as well.

Other Thoughts: Overall great product in my opinion for a HTPC. Just don't spill anything on your "spill resistant" keyboard.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for your experience. Spill resistant does not mean spill proof. Soda is a very sticky substance. A can of water would not have the same effect. You can send the keyboard in and we will look at it. If it is not determined to be customer abuse it will most likely be replaced however we cannot make any guarantees until the keyboard is received. Again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.
