    Hello to everyone and a Happy new Year.

    I/we have just bought a Samsung QLED TV and 4K Blu-ray player. Christmas presents to ourselves. Question can someone recommend a good reliable Keyboard? Either Wireless or Bluetooth. Trust do one for Samsung TV's but it costs £77+. I am now saving for a 4K VuSolo Receiver so a cheaper keyboard is a must.

    Any/all REAL advice appreciated.

    Range is important especially if you have a large TV room or are more than 1M away from your set. I think the range on Wifi keyboards may be better than that on BT ones but if you want to be able to use it with a phone without a USB adaptor then this needs to be considered also when choosing.

    I have one of these (mini with touchpad) but TBH find the range poor at times even though I am only about 5ft from the unit I'm controlling. Rechargeable & lasts for weeks between charges which is a big plus.

    Here's one that boast 10M range but it is closer to full size.
    Jelly-Comb-Touchpad-Black

    Worth checking out if there is an 'App for that' for your phone that you could use as well. I quite often use an App on my phone to control my media devices.

    Thanks for the info DD. I wasn't sure about that one, with hyperlink, I was looking at Logitech or Microsoft. If that particular keyboard can be used with a Smart TV, I'll go for that one. At least it is not costing the earth like the Trust model. Yes I did have an app for the TV and Blu-ray, but uninstalled them as they seem to run all the time.

    Thanks again

    Latest update on 'Bluetooth/Wireless Keyboard. In the end I went for the expensive, "So Called Samsung Smart TV Compatible" keyboard. Rubbish! the QLED did not recognise the keyboard. Sent it back and got a full refund. I am not too bothered at the moment. I had an accident with the new tv, whilst closing the French Door Curtains. See pic. Rather P##### Off at the moment. Claimed on the house insurance for repair or replacement. 20180115_084053.jpg When it or whatever returns I will try again with a keyboard.
