Samsung qwerty remote compatibility

by Sdbenzo76 / February 12, 2013 12:52 PM PST

Hello. I plan on purchasing a Samsung 60 inch plasma 1080 3d tv (class E550) this Friday. I would like to know if I can buy/use the Samsung 2 sided qwerty keyboard remote with it. I have researched online and I can't get a def answer. As long as tv have built in wifi which is does, should be able to pair the 2. But I'm not sure. Please help. Thank you.

Thank you so so very much for that answer...one last question though. when it says "as long as it has bluetooth" does blue-tooth essentially mean built in wi fi. i just want to make sure before i buy remote that wi-fi and bluetooth have totally different meanings when it comes to trying to pair the device.


Thank you!!

Hi Sdbenzo76,

No, Bluetooth is a different technology altogether than WiFi. However, I do believe this model has WiFi since it has 3D glasses, which if I recall correctly pair using Bluetooth.
