IOGEAR Kaliber Gaming Keyboard/Mouse Combo

IOGEAR Kaliber - Gaming Keyboard & Mouse Combo

The IOGEAR Kaliber GKM602R Gaming Keyboard and Mouse Combo is great for anyone looking for a sleek compact gaming keyboard and mouse.

The GKM602R’s Diamond Ring Keycap structure provides a solid stroke, free of play and slop that is common in some gaming keyboards. The 8 anti-ghosting keys ensure the most important keystrokes are always accurately read, even when you’re mashing multiple keys at the same time.

The keyboard keys are low profile, easy to push and responsive even with fast typing and gaming.

The keystrokes are smooth and lovely. Each stroke is absolute perfection with a solid feel and very minimal transition time. This is one of my biggest pet peeves with gaming keyboards it the extremely high keys that take full finger travel to activate, not the case with the IOGEAR Kaliber.

The Kaliber Gaming Keyboard also is spill resistant and features drain holes in the bottom to assist with expelling any nasty liquids that may find their way into the keyboard. As always caution should be taken to avoid this in the first place but it is a nice feature.


The mouse is a pure treat to work with and allows the option of using IOGEAR software to customize exactly to your needs. The top and side buttons function flawlessly and are very easy to depress during gaming / coding sessions.

One downside I found with the mouse is the middle wheel can be difficult to depress. This may be related to the one I received but it is the only one available for me to test with. As such I would have liked to see smoother depress for the middle key.


Overall I would highly recommend the IOGEAR Kaliber Gaming Keyboard & Mouse Combo. The price point presents itself as an entry level gaming keyboard and mouse combo but the overall quality and functionality of the keyboard and mouse are top notch. I personally have had more expensive combos from competitors that did not feel near as nice and work as reliably as the Kaliber.
