Bluetooth

Bluetooth Smart LE Range is 10 metres. It only pairs to one device at a time – no multipoint as is becoming popular. But pairing is very easy to so, so this is not an issue.

I tested it on several devices (as long as it supports HID – human Interface Device ) it should work.

  • Android TV – Sony
  • Laser Android 4K TV set top box (USB and Bluetooth)
  • Android Tablet – Samsung Galaxy Tab
  • Android smartphone -Samsung Galaxy Note 8
  • Windows 10 – Samsung Galaxy Book and Surface Pro 2017 – it is especially handy for the new USB-C only devices
  • MacBook Pro 2017
  • Pixel Chromebook
  • Telstra Roku device

A keyboard and touchpad work wonders on most TVs compared to an imprecise remote. It is even better for typing in passwords for Netflix et al.

GadgetGuy’s take

I own two of the USB only models for HTPC (smart TV and media centre use) – they have given excellent service. I have found no other brands/models that come close to their functionality (keyboard and trackpad) or quality.

But with the addition of Bluetooth it has become a real HTPC keyboard, it is a great addition to the lounge with a great trackpad, subtle backlighting, and Logitech quality.

At GadgetGuy we increasingly use this Bluetooth keyboard for testing the new USB-C only devices.

I am impressed with the device’s preciseness on an Android TV and tablets – yes, using a trackpad beats a remote control.

Price

$149.95 – for either version. Online prices can be up to 30% less.

It may be best to take this article with you if you want to get a Bluetooth version.
