STAY AWAY

Julian C., Newegg
1 April 2015
  • Summary: Stay away from this keybaord. First time buying from IOGear/Aten Technology, Inc. Probably my last. IOGear, please improve the quality of your products, we understand planned obsolescence is a thing but this is ridiculous.
  • Pros: Worked well for about 4 months *12/26/14-04/01/15
  • Cons: After about three months of use, the keyboard started disconnecting randomly, and now my keys are very confused. pressing a 'd' button will cause a 6 to appear, most of my numbers do not work, and my caps lock button will randomly turn on and off.

It's OK

Anonymous, Newegg
2 March 2015
  • Summary: Lesson learned: Avoid Bluetooth unless you have no other options.
  • Pros: Keyboard works when it is paired
  • Cons: I bought this for use with Windows XP x64, unfortunately the keyboard must be paired with the computer again (a highly manual and finicky process) after EVERY reboot. I'm assuming that this limitation is either due to the OS or the specific Bluetooth implementation on my motherboard (Gigabyte GA-...

ok but not very good for the money

Anonymous, Newegg
16 October 2014
  • Summary: Does anyone make a wireless keyboard that works and lasts? In 6 years I have gone through 6 keyboards; that are used with my HTPC,
  • Pros: I worked
  • Cons: After 4 months the finish has worn off the left mouse button. I could live with that however, the key is failing as well. It need to be pushed several times to work. The key also needs to be pressed in a certain stop to work. A keyboard should last longer than this. Now I will have to pay to ship...

OK but no two finger control, no zoom in or zoom out

Mike, Amazon
13 September 2014
  • Summary: Easily connected to a Nexus 10 and a Cubox-i (both android) The touchpad does not support two finger control, no zoom in or zoom out. Zoom in can alternatively be done with a double click I am not aware of any comparable method to zoom out This makes it worthless for many apps.

Good enough to by an identical unit to replace the old one.

PHILLIP C ODELL, Amazon
7 September 2014
  • Summary: This is a replacement for an identical keyboard I bought a little more than a year ago. The older unit works but the plastic case has split and needs gluing. I like the way the keys feel and the layout of the keyboard.

excellent value

Paul C., Newegg
11 August 2014
  • Summary: 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.
  • 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)

Works great with 6 devices

Lawrence J Tetzner, Amazon
15 July 2014
  • Summary: Works great with 6 devices. Hardest part is to remember which device is controlled by which setting. Could have better battery life (perhaps more batteries to last longer). Using with with PlayStation3, Ipad, Several computers, Droid Phone.

Bluetooth keyboard is a winner

Jillo Gelatin "Jillo", Amazon
12 July 2014
  • Summary: Works great, no problems whatsoever. Connects every time. What makes it especially useful is that all of the arrow keys work just like a standard keyboard, like up, down, left, right, a backspace that doesn't erase characters as you backspace.

I do not like the smaller keyboards as I learned to type on ...

Nichole P. Conard, Amazon
9 July 2014
  • Summary: I am using it right now...it is light weight but more importantly it has full size keys. I do not like the smaller keyboards as I learned to type on a manual typewriter, yes one of those, this keyboard has good reaction to my firmer typing style and like I said it is full sized.
