      This is my third wireless keyboard for my "couch-PC". Overall, it's a fairly well-designed unit. The trackball is a pleasure to use and the key feel is good. I haven't run the original batteries out yet, after about 2 months. I do miss having a number pad, but including one would be cumbersome from a size standpoint. It's very tightly put together, which is good, as it seems like it will let in less dust/dirt/grime over time. They even included a cleaning cloth in the box, which I thought was a nice touch.

      There are a few issues. The scroll wheel is fidgety on my unit, often making accurate scrolling (and scroll-clicks) difficult or impossible. The rubber feet on the bottom of the unit will, naturally, come unglued, and two of these feet must be removed to disassemble the keyboard for cleaning, anyway. Same goes for the rubber bumpers on the sides of the keyboard, which are probably useless, anyway. The media center buttons for playback/volume control aren't well thought-out from a usability standpoint. While useful, their lack of separation/differentiation make it difficult to press the one you want without actively looking at the keyboard (having the volume controls separated and close to the trackball would have been nice).

      At the price, though, it's easy to ignore this unit's faults, and I've spent far more on other keyboards that have been less functional.

      I use this product to control my HTPC computer. Its really great having a mouse and keyboard together. The range works well across the large 12ft room. The only problem is the track-ball. It seems too loose, I took the keyboard apart and loosened the screws to the circuit board for the track ball, this allowed for a tighter fit.

      I would buy this again based on all my research but will see what new products are available first.

      Great Product

      Comments about IOGEAR 2.4GHz Multimedia Keyboard with Laser Trackball and Scroll Wheel:

      So far I am pleased with this keyboard. I brought my dead computer back to life as a second machine for watching streaming video.

      The wireless keyboard is perfect for a remote. Not so small you can't type comfortably, but not so big it gets in the way. The trackball is responsive and easy to use. Having the buttons for the trackball on the other side takes a little getting used to, but makes it easier to hold on your lap.

      Comments about IOGEAR 2.4GHz Multimedia Keyboard with Laser Trackball and Scroll Wheel:

      This keyboard/trackball mouse combo is excellent for sitting on the couch surfing the net on TV. The trackball and mouse buttons are pretty easy to use, and battery life seems good so far. Two setbacks to this keyboard. On/off switch on the bottom..WHY? (I think a timer shutoff would be better.) No numberpad makes some things a bit tougher, but the size very comfortable.

        Price: A+
        Quality: A
        Functionality: A
        Durability: C-

        Pros: Good, small size, great feel, media keys.
        Cons: Trackball is sealed in permanently, unable to clean. Once it starts sticking, there's not much you can do.

        Note: I have read many reviews on this and the only complaint is the trackball gets dirty and stops working over time. I have not tested to see if its cleanable, if the keyboard is unscrewed and disassembled a bit - might not be a big deal. I haven't had the need to clean it yet.

          Previously purchased for the family room HTPC. Worked out well so I purchased another for the bedroom HTPC. Great for web surfing and as a media player controller. Easy and comfortable to use, although you need the use of both hands- the right thumb controls the track ball and the left thumb controlls the right/left buttons and scroll wheel. Good RF reception at 15-20 feet and very responsive. The track ball feels a little rough but works well.

              I use this for the computer that is dedicated to my big screen TV. The thing that I liked and bought it for is that it has the 2 mouse buttons and a track ball and the added bonus of a scroll wheel. After a week the track ball started acting up and has become useless for the most part. Don't know if this is a common problem with this or I just got a bad one.

              Comments about IOGEAR 2.4GHz Multimedia Keyboard with Laser Trackball and Scroll Wheel:

              I got this keyboard originally because I needed a tiny footprint wireless keyboard for my server. Since I haven't finished building my server I decided to test the keyboard on my primary machine. I was expecting the input to be laggy and for random characters to be typed every time my neighbour's kid started playing with his RC car. Well... I was very wrong. The response is sharp, and even with my 103wpm typing, not a single character was missed. The mouse is smooth, the scroll wheel and L/R click buttons are in a great place, and no matter what is happening in the EM spectrum, the thing just keeps in going. I plugged in an old wireless keyboard, the same one that turned me away from wireless, and even though the other board was getting a haranguing by other devices, the iomega never had a single issue.

              There is one small thing I would change... The receiver that plugs into the computer is small, but it isn't low profile like most wireless devices these days. It doesn't warrant losing a star, but I am sure there are people who will use this with a laptop (I can think of a dozen situations off the top of my head) and either a receiver storage spot on the unit or a low profile receiver would be better for those taking this thing on the go.

              Additional side note: I want this keyboard with shoulder click buttons and a WASD pad where the mouse buttons are so I can play Minecraft with it. ;) that would be a great product!

                  Sturdy construction, Plug and Play set up no problem with Vista Home Premium. Pointer very smooth and accurate. Read instuctions, it will shut down every 30 min. to save battery, any key to turn on... I only give it 4 stars, because when used in dark room for TV control, lighted keys would have been nice to have.

                        If you are looking for a wireless keyboard this is the one. Not too big and not too small. It fits well on your lap, the trackball work well and so far I have found nothing I did not like. I use it for my laptop which sends the video to my TV so it is a perfect match. Ok, I guess I should say one negitive thing !! but most will not even know. When you click the mouse button I wish it was silent, but that is just me.

                                  Range is as good as I need it to be ~10ft.
                                  Track ball is surprisingly responsive.
                                  Scroll wheel is also a big PLUS!

                                  One slight negative: Some media center functions are provided in buttons above the keyboard (this is a good thing), but some other funcitons are doubled-up with the F1-F8 keys and require the FN button be pushed to access them. It would be preferable if all of those functions were added at the top of the keyboard.

                                  That being said, great keyboard at a great price. I'm extremely happy with the purchase.

                                  This wireless keyboard with trackball is a very good product. It feels very comfortable in your hands and the keys are full sized and well placed. Best thing? No drivers or lousy software needed to run it. One of the first computer gadgets I've found that is TRULY plug N' play. The multimedia buttons worked with all four of the media players on my computer with no problem. The only weakness, and it is minor, is the trackball. It could be a little smoother and a little larger. There are function keys to adjust the resolution, but the ball movement is a bit rough and sometimes jerky. Other than that, it is a great device overall and certainly the best of its class that I've tried.

                                    We purchased this for our 4 year old son as we thought that it would be easier for him to use than a separate keyboard & nouse. He loves it! The trackball and keys are the perfect size for him. I have used it a few times with our home theater and it works great from 10' away on our living room sofa. Great product, especially for the price I paid.

                                    I love this keyboard's design - it is a perfect keyboard for the couch. However, it seems to be of poor quality. I've purchased 2 of these keyboards - the SHIFT keys stopped working on the first one. The trackball doesn't work perfectly. And the advertised range of 33 feet is overly optimistic.
