Can someone recommend me a good full sized bluetooth keyboard?

I need one for when my laptop is hooked to my TV. Only ones i'm finding on Amazon are the compact ones for Ipads and such without the full key set.

Since I'm not using this one on the go, but in my living room, i don't mind it being large. Would be even cooler if they made mechanical BT keyboards.

Why not a wireless one? Cheaper and more reliable.

You can buy a USB port expander for as low as $3.

The point is I don't want more stuff hanging off my laptop than there already is. I don't mind bluetooth at all. I just wanna find one with a full sized layout. I much prefer the completely dongle free kind.

They already exist:

I have one but I mostly use it in wired mode. The bluetooth mode has key repeat problems for me, but I do have a lot of devices that could be interfering with it. It also has a 100ms delay in bluetooth mode, which is rather inconvenient for online gaming. It's really easy to switch between bluetooth and wired though if you wanted to get the best of both worlds.

That looks pretty nice, but kinda pricey too.
