In researching Smart TVs the biggest complaint I hear about was using the remote to fill in characters and how it could be a real pain and very tedious. So when I decided to buy a whole new Home Theater for my husband right after I ordered the TV I ordered this keyboard. The setup was easy and it paired with the TV with virtually no hassle, which was what I had expected and was great. However he tries to start typing things in and while the remote seemed to work and the arrow keys seemed to work nothing seemed to be happening with the keys. I went back later and did some tinkering and found that it seems that you can't type UNTIL you have the TV's onscreen keyboard up. This seems to be the trick and I could imagine a boat load of frustration ensuing if you never thought to try it until you gave up trying to type and pulled up the onscreen key board. Once I had that figured out it was great and is going to definitely make many things easier because in short order I too found out just how frustrating it could be just using the remote and attempting to input characters via the onscreen keyboard. If you have a SMART TV, I must agree with every other reviewer... the keyboard will save you loads of frustration and is well worth the money if you intent to do a lot of searching, browsing, etc.

First, the good news. this keyboard synched up immediately with my JS9000 TV. Now for the bad. This would probably rate four stars if you just wanted to use it for web browsing, for which the keyboard works well. The trackpad is a little skittish, but you can get used to it. However, the box shows all of the Samsung "Smart Hub" features, so the implication is that you can use the QUERTY keyboard to access applications on the Smart Hub toolbar. Most will not work (for example Hulu, Amazon, YouTube).. You will have to use the pointer on the TV remote and point to each individual letter. That makes this unit worthless for the Smart Hub. (I did get Netflix to work). Samsung, you make such great products; how about building an interface to allow the KBD 2500 to work with third-party applications? I returned my unit.

        Another Samsung product that does not function

          Comments about Samsung Smart Wireless Keyboard:

          Given the lack of working apps for a new Samsung Smart-Hub LETV, it was necessary to purchase this expensive accessory. Although it functioned reasonably well initially, despite trying countless (and time-consuming) maneuvers as per Samsung's instructions, after more than a month of trial-and-error this keyboard still fails to connect. (Although it does turn the TV off. ...) Limited by mobility, time, and availability, together with the need to combine computing and video, as well as "entertainment" suitable for a family room constrained by space and decore, I had hoped that purchasing this over-priced keyboard - specifically designed use with Samsung's own screen/TV containing a basic built-in processor - would be of benefit; instead it is just one more headache.

            Comments about Samsung Smart Wireless Keyboard:

            I purchased a VG-KBD2500/ZA key board to work with my UN55JS7000FXZA TV after chatting with another Samsung representative. They confirmed this unit would work with my TV. It does, however it will not allow me to type in any of the search fields of any of the APPS such as YOUTUBE. I found that odd as the photo on Samsung’s web page one can clearly see YOUTUBE. So I reached out to Samsung via chat and asked them if I was doing something wrong. They confirmed the APPS determine whether or not a keyboard can be used in place of the virtual keyboard displayed on screen. For me this is a deal breaker. I bought this to do just that. I does work in the search bar of a web browser and there are useful remote commands to operate the TV. If it would work with the APPS it would be a great product as it is made to high standards as most Samsung products are.

                  Purchased to take better advantage of features available using TV browser capabilities. This keyboard certainly fits the bill, and makes it simple to put in information. Much easier for me to use a keyboard than the SmartRemote that came with the TV.

                      I'm soooo lazy, i needed to get a keyboard for my smart tv. QWERTY is much easier than the remote that came with the tv. This thing is awesome. Even the mouse pad is better than described by some reviewers.

                          At first I thought that the keyboard will be just like another wireless keyboard althelike from other brands. But I've been pretty amazed so far with what can I do with this keyboard on my 4k smart Samsung TV. It's got all the functions of the smart control plus all the functions of a computer keyboard which is great for web searching
