Yes. I got a Vizio XRT302 Qwerty keyboard Remote and it works with the E500i-A1 without any problems so far. I got a new one on ebay for ~$16. Vizio uses this remote for many of their smart tvs.

The TV does not come with a keyboard remote and it will not work with one. When a keyboard is needed a virtual keyboard will display on the screen.
