How about the Logitech Revue?
A couple of months ago, I met a Samsung rep at a Costco store . As I was consisering a D6500 (55" LED), I asked about a keyboard that could be used with this model. He whipped out a fancy remote/keyboard out of his bag and showed me what Samsung offers. However, he suggested I consider the Revue by Logitech. He said it's much more ergonomically friendly.
I eventually purchased a D6000 with a dongle from a competitor (better deal) because I felt the picture quality and the prce was a no-brainer. After I installed everything (AV receiver, speakers, BR player, VCR & XBox), I tried out the Smart features and agree with others that the remote input task is indeed cumbersome and somewhat of a hassle.
I then purchased a Revue and saw that this appliance was designed for HDMI input from either a cable or satallite STB. Well, I get my HD & other programming from the atmosphere; good ole OTA. So up until now, I haven't connected it because it really isn't designed for my set-up. I interpret hat the Revue makes any TV into a Smart TV but I'm not sure how this would work connected to the receiver. Although I have a hunch that the Revue's keyboard will interface well with the TV and the internet connection, thus allowing me to use the keyboard as originally intended.
This may be a solution to the wireless keyboard debachle. Before I decide to return this (haven't tried it nor opened the box), has anyone tried this product to see if it would work with Samsung Smart TV's? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.
