I currently have my PC hooked up to my TV to use as a media station of sorts. However, I usually have problems when I sit on the couch about 6 feet from the receiver. I've used Microsoft- and Logitech-branded keyboard/mouse combos in the past, and most have done the job to an extent, but I'd really like to find a wireless keyboard/mouse combo that will reach 10 feet easily. Any suggestions? Does Bluetooth offer a longer range than RF?

I found that one online but I've found others that proclaim to be "long range" with no better results than what I have now.

personally - i have never bought one ,but if it operates on 2.4 gigs that is the same frequency as a wireless router,and you should have no trouble with 6 feet of distance.Bluetooth isn't necessarily a good option because it is only good for short range. You can always return it if it doesn't work. Amazon is great about refunds and returns. Let me know what happens - good luck!Paul P.S. if you look at the item , i noticed that it comes with a USB wireless card, so I would think that it works pretty well-
