It's a little touchy with USB keyboards. Some work, some don't, and I haven't found one that works with all apps. If you have a keyboard you want to connect, try using the front USB port.

The answer is, "Yes, but...."

You can plug a USB keyboard into the front USB port, but it is only active when there is a search box displayed, but not all of the search boxes work and not all keys work. For instance, you can search YouTube, but have to use the keyboard in conjunction with the remote to navigate once you get the search results. The keyboard does not work at all with Amazon Instant Video's search. In the Web browser, you can move around the screen with the arrow keys to highlight clickable areas, but will have to use the remote to actually click.

Sony stopped just short of making it useful. Then again, without a zoom function in the browser, many sites are all but unreadable, anyway.

There is a USB connection port on the front of the Blue Ray player, if one has wireless internet you could use this port for a keyboard, otherwise if you don't have wireless internet, you would have to use this port for your LAN cable. Hope this helps. I still LOVE this player! And it streams movies flawlessly......
