5 out of 5 eggsexcellent value

Pros: Up to 8 devices, works with Linux and Mac out of the box (probably Win as well but I wouldn't know), works with old an new dongles.

Cons: you need a bluetooth enabled PC, or supply your own dongle (<$10)

Other Thoughts: I have had this keyboard now for several years and do not understand the negative reviews. It does take a second to reconnect after reboot, like my microsoft bluetooth mouse does. I'm typing this review with it. It's a solid, inexpensive bluetooth keyboard and trackpad that I connect to a Kubuntu 14.04, an Archlinux system, a Raspberry Pi, and a Mac mini - all at once. It can do 8 devices I believe, although I do only 4 regularly.

1 out of 5 eggsiogear bluetooth keyboard.

Pros: None

Cons: This never came with the usb bluetooth device I had to buy it took another 4 5 days to arrive. If you do not have a keyboard and mouse you on the computer you will not be able to get this to work. The wireless usb type keyboard and mouse is a better buy and easier to install and work. Stay away from bluetooth unless you have a keyboard and mouse working on the computer. Once you have a wired mouse and keyboard it is easy to install, then you can use this bluetooth keyboard and mouse.

Manufacturer Response:

First, thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for your experience. This blue tooth keyboard does not come with a blue tooth dongle. This is standard with most blue tooth enabled keyboards. A blue tooth enabled devise should not interfere with your wireless keyboard and mouse. Again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.
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.

1 out of 5 eggsusb dongle

Pros: none

Cons: Did not come with a usb dongle and the description did not say it came with it or not. If I would have known this I never would have bought it. It is like getting a ps2 keyboard with no cord. I would not recommend this item at all.

3 out of 5 eggsIt's 50/50

Pros: I've had this keyboard for about a month now. As a blue tooth keyboard it works very well. I have not had it miss any keys,

Cons: The touch pad needs to be bigger. It will not work during boot ups. I have an asus v pro gen3 and it takes and extra 30 seconds to load windows. too loud. i would not recommend this to my friends or buy again. Actually I'm returning this .

Other Thoughts: As a keyboard its great, it needs a blue tooth mouse with it to work well. It also needs to be back lit, i have trouble finding the home row sometimes when its dark, I type very well. Don't use this as a replacement for a usb keyboard and mouse, you will be disapointed with the track pad. If this is just a home theater pc keyboard it will work very well.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Bluetooth
integrated touchpad (until it dies...)

Cons: Wouldn't stay connected to bluetooth between reboots. Hard to reconnect when only keyboard and pointing device not functioning. (catch-22)
Shoddy construction, keyboard slid downward inside the casing after only a few weeks of use with an HTPC. this caused all the lower keys to start snapping off and breaking. It was repaired once with super-glue, but this failed to alleviate the issue, until finally the touchpad totally failed. Threw it in the trash.

Other Thoughts: Bought IOGEAR GKM561R (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823176018) as a replacement, and it's a million times better than this model. It's also comparably priced. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this one.

Manufacturer Response:

First, thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for your experience. The product should not behave as you described. The GKM611B carries a 3 year warranty. If you still have this keyboard we will be more than happy to contact you with quality service and process an RMA. Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

1 out of 5 eggsConnection issues

Pros: Buttons are very nice.
Can switch between different devices. (would be nice I didn't need to constantly reinstall)

Cons: - This keyboard constantly disconnects. So often that I have to have a wired keyboard attached in order to reinstall the driver whenever it stops working.
- Trackpad sluggish

Other Thoughts: I cannot recommend this product. Worst keyboard I ever owned.

I'm using Windows 7 64bit. Maybe some others have had better luck.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for your experience. We have tested this keyboard with Windows 7 and did not have any of the problems you are describing. Please email us with a phone number to contact you at support@iogear.com. We will be more than happy to contact you with quality service and process an RMA. Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks, But no range

Pros: Works well sitting at your PC and within the very limited range.

Cons: I intended on using this keyboard to run my media computer for video streaming and Blu-Ray movies.
At a distance of about 10 feet the touch pad control gets flaky.

Other Thoughts: I went with an extended range USB keyboard with touch pad.

2 out of 5 eggsNot for MAC

Pros: Solid keyboard for windows operating system

Cons: trackpad is too small and not sensitive enough for MAC

Other Thoughts: I have to echo the previous review in regard to MAC users. I too thought this could be an affordable option for docking my Macbook Air. While the keyboard function works just fine (less some options as stated in previous review). The trackpad is the killer here. It's just too small and the sensitivity is very lacking with no way to adjust. You can't scroll from one side of your desktop to the other with one swipe of the finger, you have to keep picking up your finger and reswiping to get anywhere. Kind of defeats the purpose. In IOGears defense they admit this was not fully developed for MAC but again if your are thinking this is an alternative to a MAC keyboard/trackpad it falls short.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for the inconvenience. I will pass this information along to the product manager for his review. Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.
