5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome keyboard combo
I bought this for my HTPC after being too annoyed with the remote that came with it. When I opened the box and took a brief look at the flyer that comes with it, it said Windows & Mac compatible, while I have Ubuntu 10.10. That gave me a slight pause, but I plugged in the USB receiver, pushed the sync buttons, and everything worked perfectly. The extra multimedia keys...

I had trouble with this as certain keys started to fail. The left and right click also started to go out. I got 2 replacements from IOGear. They were very prompt and responsive with sending out the replacements, but I did had to do it twice. Right now I'm living without the ability to middle click.

I bought this for my HTPC after being too annoyed with the remote that came with it. When I opened the box and took a brief look at the flyer that comes with it, it said Windows & Mac compatible, while I have Ubuntu 10.10. That gave me a slight pause, but I plugged in the USB receiver, pushed the sync buttons, and everything worked perfectly. The extra multimedia keys don't work (yet?), but that's not a big deal at all. At least now I can type my password on a real keyboard, instead or moving the remote control's mouse around an onscreen one.

I have not experienced any interference with my wifi, and movies stream just fine with the keyboard on. Two thumbs up from me. And the price cannot be beat either. This is the cheapest you will find it anywhere in Canada.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great useful keyboard, Sept. 11 2013

Using this keyboard has been a real pleasure. All the mouse functions without having to take your hands off the keyboard. I've used this keyboard for about 2 years and have had no problem with it. Being wireless is awesome. You can move around with the keyboard and it's great when you hook your computer to HDMI on your TV. A good purchase for the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars A terrific home theater keyboard, Jan. 28 2015

A terrific home theater keyboard. Rugged enough that mine has withstood several falls. Only casualty is the batteries fly out. Just put electrical tape over the battery cover, and that's only if you anticipate dropping it! I'd give it 5 stars if there was some back lighting included. Quite difficult to read the keys in low lighting. Thankfully I can touch type!

I made a Home Theater PC and was looking for a single unit mouse and keyboard. This one is small, light, and has a great feel. Works perfect for what I need it for. Would be nice to able to program multimedia keys for my applications

My HTPC needed to be operated from the sofa and this does it really well with the position of the track ball and mouse buttons. Its easy to get used to and very accurate and a breeze to navigate to all parts of the screen unlike the track pads that require a balancing act to use. The track ball could be higher quality to make this the ultimate HTPC keyboard but it still functions well enough for me and anyone I would think. This is really the only way to go.

3.0 out of 5 stars No number pad, Feb. 15 2014

I had not realized when I shopped for this keyboard that it does not have a numpad. I intended to use it as a "mobile" replacement for my wired keyboard but I just can't get used to typing without a numpad. It's quite an expensive keyboard for just using it the odd times I need it in front of the TV to control my computer. There is also some lag when using it 10ft away from the computer. Overall good quality, but I am a bit disappointed with my purchase.

We snagged one of these for a PC streaming only TV setup after dropping cable and we love this thing. It works great! The only thing I notice after 6 months of use now is that we need to reset now and then when turning the keyboard on and off doesn't seem to work. Keys work well, the track ball is responsive. All in all a good buy!
