IOGEAR GKM561R Black 2.4GHz Wireless HTPC Multimedia Keyboard with Laser Trackball and Scroll Wheel

Robert N., Newegg

  • Pros: Excellent trackball for positioning the pointer on smaller spaces.
  • Cons: Needs a left click button beside the trackball so you can navigate and select with one hand like the nmediapc it replaces. I REALLY miss this feature. Trackball is loose in its socket and moves the pointer if you tilt the keyboard. Should be a tighter fit.

Works as expected - 2+ years

  • Pros: Works as expected, great for a HTPC type application. Use to navigate my pc (screen on my TV) from my couch, web browsing/playing movies ect.
  • Cons: No on/off switch so if it falls between your couch cushions and a key gets pressed down will wear out your batteries faster. My dog chewed the battery cover off while it was on the floor :)

HTPC Keyboard

John O., Newegg
28 February 2015
  • Summary: A good purchase for the money tho more precision with the trackball would be appreciated.
  • Pros: Range is ok for me (15ft+ ... thru closed cabinet door). Nice having mouse keys and wheel opposite trackball hand and all needed functions included without 2nd device (mouse).
  • Cons: Trackball tracking is a bit "vague". It gets there, but it's a bit frustrating at times.

It works and the price was right

  • Excerpt: I've been using this a little over a week so can't say anything about long term durability. It works great but I have not tried it at a distance. I bought this to replace a wired keyboard that the scroll wheel stooped working on. Its for personal web browsing use and does what I need it for.
  • Pros: Quiet, Reliable Performance
  • Cons: Dual Function Keys, Inadequate features, No Caps Lock Light

Fits my special need!

  • Excerpt: I am well pleased with my new keyboard. First of all I have been a touch typist for decades and i like the "feel" of this keyboard -- keys are responsive. I bought it because of the trackball / mouse configuration. My right hand is stressed from decades of use especially mouse use.
  • Pros: Comfortable Design, Great Features, Quiet, Reliable Performance, Small Footprint, Sturdy

Great while it lasted

Casey M., Newegg

  • Summary: "It was fun while it lasted" would be the best way to describe this keyboard. I wish it would have lasted longer because it really fits my needs.
  • Pros: One of the very few mouse/keyboard combos out there that is actually configured correctly. Clickers on one side, mouse movement on the other side. Even Logitec's "high-end" HTPC keyboards have mouse pad and clickers on the same side.
  • Cons: After about 1.5 years of owning, the usb receiver died. Called IOGear up and ask about purchasing a new receiver. They said they would send me a receiver free of charge. I waited about 3 months for that receiver to come in. After the 3rd month I called back again inquiring about getting a replace...

  • Summary: I use this keyboard for my multimedia PC that's part of my entertainment center. That Keyboard part works very well, as far as typing. The trackball part (which is what I use most) is not that great.

  • Summary: I love this keyboard to death and use it every day. The Set-up was non-existent (If I remember - I've had it so long). I think I've changed the batteries maybe once or twice in 18 months, and I guarantee I use it more often than pretty much anyone on earth..
  • Pros: Easy set up, Good Size, light, comfortable, Perfect for HTPC
  • Cons: Cheap and un-removable trackball
