IOGEAR GKM581R


$90.00 Released December, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Connects right away and never looses its connection. Keys are responsive and give good feedback so you know when you've pressed them. Battery life is very good, don't have to change them too often.

The Cons:Rapid-fire mode can be switched on by accident, makes it triple-click on everything. Trackball isn't very accurate, hard to get it exactly where you want it.

The IOGEAR GKM581R is one of two 2.4GHz wireless home theater PC (HTPC) remotes (GKM571R, GKM581R) released in late 2010. The larger GKM581R is geared more for getting work done while sitting comfortably on a touch.
