Plug and play keyboard works great on my Samsung smart HDTV. Comes with a USB extender. Plugged into the TV USB port and placed the “dongle” where the IR would hit it. TV menu screen popup recognized the keyboard. Compact, easy to use, touchpad is nice. Works great to navigate Smart TV, browser, (and) apps like Pandora. (It is) much better than the on screen QWERTY keyboard. For a few extra bucks, you would think Samsung would include an accessory such as this.

I already own a universal remote but needed a keyboard/mouse for windows commands. I love the (KP-810-18R Commander Keyboard) it works great an it is small. It is rechargeable. It has the controls on the back that can be programmed to mimic media center commands. The receiver is behind the TV but I have no problem with reception…it works great.

I cannot say enough about this (KP-810-18VR Commander Voice) keyboard. I am a big fan. I had been using the lenovo remote that does not have a back light, and it was ok, but not great. Hard to see in dim lights and the signal would cut out causing missed keys. I starting looking for a replacement and came across this gem. Not only do you get a back-lit keyboard, but a wireless speaker and microphone with IR remote??!!

“My setup in the living room is a large television and an HTPC running XBMC. I’ve used at least five other devices or combination of devices to control this setup and each of them had their advantages and disadvantages. The KP-810-16R Wave Air /Fly Mouse remote/keyboard is much better than all of the other options overall.
The importance of the IR remote on the back can’t be overstated. Even though the buttons are limited, each of them has two modes (TV and AV). This remote would not be adequate for anything more than turning the television on, changing the channel, adjusting the volume and changing the input…. But that’s all I needed it for anyway. These simple buttons allow me to throw my Television IR remote in the drawer and only take it out when I need to access some special function, which is almost never.
The air-mouse function was a surprise to me, I thought it would be, at best, a barely tolerable way to move the mouse when I needed to for some reason and I didn’t want to go find my wireless mouse that is always where I didn’t sit down. In fact it works really well and is without a doubt my favorite way of controlling the cursor short of a real wireless mouse (which, let’s face it, can’t be beat). It is surprisingly smooth. I turned the mouse sensitivity down a couple of notches in windows to allow for more accurate pointing. There are 2 ways of moving the cursor, both using the same air-mouse button either “Click cursor movement on – Click cursor movement off” or a “Click and hold to move – Release to stop”. Both of these work well, but some situations demand one or the other, and it’s nice that they are both always available. It just depends on how long you hold the button. Another great feature is the ability to rotate the air mouse so you can hold it like a remote if you want and the movements are natural, or rotate and hold the KB sideways and the mouse will work correctly in that orientation. Impressive.
I’ve paid 3 times as much for products that did only half of what this one does and not as well. While not perfect, the price brings this up to 5 stars for me and I will never build a HTPC for a friend without insisting they get one of these.”
