Buying for a Smart TV? Don't!
1 Star Review   By mkmck on Adorama - Oct 9, 2013    ( See more reviews from Adorama )

This unit is practically useless for a Smart TV. The only thing the keyboard portion works on is when the TV puts up it's onscreen keyboard. It wouldn't work on any apps that I tried...Youtube, Netflix, Amazon, etc. You have to use their onscreen keyboard, the bluetooth one is useless. If you want to drop that kind of money on an extra remote and extremely limited keyboard functionality, be my guest. Mine went back to the store. If Samsung gets their act together and makes the apps it offers compatible with this keyboard, I'd buy it again. Until then, no thanks.

Good keyboard, VERY POOR support on late model TV
1 Star Review   By Anonymous on Adorama - Oct 9, 2013    ( See more reviews from Adorama )

There's probably nothing wrong with the keyboard itself - it tethers fine to my late-model PS64E8000 TV and also to my mobile and -- when the devices and apps are paying proper attention -- it works fine. But the rub lies in the ridiculouslly poor keyboard support Samsung have in their apps. On my TV, some apps work, some of the time, and most don't. And even the web browser - which is the MAIN reason I got the keyboard - is incredibly unreliable and inconsistent when it comes to the mouse support. The cursor is hard to manage and usually just disappears. I'm hoping a future TV software update will get this right. If it doesn't, there's really no reason to own a pricey keyboard like this. As someone else said "I am a principal product manager for one of the world's largest software companies. There is NO WAY I would ever let a product that performs as bad as this keyboard out the door." Same here, except I believe it's really the TV's software, not the keyboard hardware at fault.

Does not work with all apps notably netflix and youtube
1 Star Review   By Dillu on Adorama - Aug 1, 2013    ( See more reviews from Adorama )

To me, this is a waste of money, I bought the keyboard with the hope that I would be able to type in netflix and youtube but utterly disappointed to find out that this doesn't work with those apps. [The TV remote works just fine for me for navigating smart hub and apps is where the problem was]. I am hoping that i can return this keyboard.

difficult to use touch pad
2 Star Review   By BadKbd on Adorama - Jul 26, 2013    ( See more reviews from Adorama )

Wish I could have tried it before I purchased the kbd2000. The mouse (touch pad) does not work well. Sometimes the cursor will not move, other times it is all over the screen, very difficult to use.

Overall a good keyboard
5 Star Review   By Renatojd1 on Adorama - Jul 26, 2013    ( See more reviews from Adorama )

THe keyboard is an excellent addition to the Smart TV, but it's not supported by many of the apps that are on the SmartHub. Really a good thing for the browser, but it's a hit or miss otherwise. However, it does connect to multiple devices so I can use it on my Series 7 Slate as well; for which I need a new keyboard anyway. Also the touchpad works completely different than the remote. It's more of a mouse with a pointer. That takes a bit of getting used to. But when you are browsing the Internet it works really well. Much better than without it.

2013 6400 Series 3D LED TV
1 Star Review   By Mrshmellow on Adorama - Jul 13, 2013    ( See more reviews from Adorama )

I have not found an application that responds to typing on the keyboard. Typing titles was the desired benefit to having this keyboard. It will shift into Smart Hub and change volume and channel but I have a remote for that. So far (2 weeks), I just have a useless keyboard attached to a Smart Remote.

Would be great If...
1 Star Review   By DeeDee38 on Adorama - Jun 6, 2013    ( See more reviews from Adorama )

This Samsung keyboard would have been excellent for the 2 smart TVs I brought which i love if I could use the wireless Bluetooth keyboard on the TVs. I brought not only the 2000 but the 1500 and found neither worked. Do to I have 6300 series TVs which do no have Bluetooth function built in. I had to go buy another brand of keyboard to use on my Samsung TVs. No more near as cool or function the same. The keyboard works through a Bluetooth dongle which came with the keyboard. If you correct the keyboard and add a dongle I would go out and buy one today because it has all the functions to control my TVs. Instead I have to use my keyboard and my phone with control app on it. Why when your product has it all in one. So no I would not recommend this keyboard to anyone until corrected. Why the chose was made that way I do not understand but I'm sure or hope you will fix the problem because a lot of people have put out complaints on the web. Simple fix keyboard Bluetooth dongle product sold.

Makes Some Things Easier
4 Star Review   By Stabler on Adorama - May 18, 2013    ( See more reviews from Adorama )

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.
