We had a brief review of Samsung 43″ NU7100 Series SmartTV running Tizen OS. Keyboard, Mouse Are Important Tools For Any SmartTV For Full Enjoyment. Which Wireless Keyboard Mouse For Samsung Smart TV (NU7100 Series) Works? Many of the sellers do not accept return of these products. We are providing you 100% genuine, tested review for cheapest to most costly wireless keyboard. You can buy them from local shop instead of online shop to save money.
There are dedicated, specially made Smart TV Keyboards such as Rii i8+. They are usually mini keyboards with touchpad, two set of direction keys like TV remote. Unfortunately they are inferior compared to computer keyboard & mouse. Logitech K600 TV Keyboard costs $10 more than the usual computer keyboard & mouse.
Samsung has/hd a QWERTY flip Smart TV remote which costs whooping $200 with power button :
Unless there are keys like power button, “Smart TV Keyboards” are inferior than the usual computer keyboard & mouse – you’ll still need the remote for some reason with such power button free keyboards plus they are near unusable with full computers for typing many sentences.
Which Wireless Keyboard Mouse For Samsung Smart TV (NU7100 Series) Works?
A wired USB keyboard is not practical for a larger TV. Many made in China wireless keyboards are astonishingly great with a cheap $20 price tag for full mouse keyboard combo.
Thankfully, Tizen OS supports plug and play of most of the wireless keyboards. You just need to insert the USB dongle to USB port of your Samsung Smart TV to get them working.
Rapoo (Shenzhen Rapoo Technology Co., Ltd) is one such China company who are known in the computer peripheral market delivering decent products. They have official website :
We tested Rapoo X1800 keyboard, mouse (which is cheapest wireless keyboard mouse model with a cheap $20 price tag). Unless you need gaming or has fascination of funky keyboard, such keyboard enough for a Smart TV. That model lacks switch for the keyboard, mouse is beautiful and has Apple style on/off switch. Apart from that, we tested similar mouse from Logitech which did same work. If you want keyboard, mouse in one board (mouse will be like laptop’s touchpad), we must warn you – it can prove to be unfriendly in the context of usefulness.
Which Functions of Keyboard Samsung Smart TV (NU7100 Series) Supports?
You’ll get enough support by Rapoo X1800 keyboard, mouse from Tizen OS for television. It is Samsung’s modification and App developers’ wrong development which forces not to support all the features.
On Samsung’s Smart Hub (practically the Home), keyboard’s arrow direction keys, Enter key, Escape key, sound volume key works. Mouse will not work outside right click. YouTube app supports only the keyboard’s arrow direction keys, numerical keys, enter key, escape key, space (pause/play) which forces to tap on their odd onscreen keypad of the app to search. Samsung’s Internet app supports all the normal features of keyboard and mouse. Samsung’s Tizen OS supports full keyboard where a keyboard pops up like for filling email IDs in various applications. You’ll clearly understand that the app developers has problem, not Samsung or Tizen OS.
Although Samsung’s modified Tizen OS does not support all the features of keyboard mouse outside Internet app, arrow keys, enter & escape key is far smooth and easy to use than any remote. Samsung’s Internet app enough good like Samsung smartphone’s browsers. It is impractical to use the officially provided remote to sign in, use Google maps. You needed a keyboard which works with most of your computing devices. Inside your home, full computer keyboard is durable and practical.
