Its called a (KVM) Switch, not a splitter!!!!

Amazon basics one is double the cost of cheaper ones but I guess would be reliable. You can go for a cheaper one that has good reviews. Be wary of fake reviews.
 
Asus TUF K3 - Kailh Red switch - ₹5600

Initial impressions - Good, my first time owning a mech KB. Have used my friend's Logitech G413 briefly. Because of the lack of dedicated media keys, I set scroll lock as vol down, Pause key as vol up & Home key as play/pause using Armoury Crate. My biggest con for this KB was its software, needs 2 software if you want to create custom RGB effects, also the installation took almost an hour for me for some reason. Key caps are easy to remove, no idea if switches can be removed or not. It's not loud IMO, similar to my CM Devastator 3 KB.

I never thought I needed a long wrist rest until I used this.

But, I see it already has volume control keys in F9-F11.

Good enough. For typists, generally blue or brown switches are recommended though. There are a bit extra erroneous key presses for me than earlier, but I guess that's because of the new KB in general. I likely type a bit more than average gamers, but still not too much of typing even for my work, so red keys are fine.

Wrist rest is normal hard plastic, attaches to KB via magnets, neat solution.

Have to press Fn+F9-F11 vs just pressing 1 key. I don't use the Scroll Lock, Pause or Home keys ever, so I don't think I will miss those keys. Whereas I use vol up/down & play/pause a lot more often.

Apple's cable is called lightning, it's an ageing standard that really needs to be replaced by usb c. They have started though (ipad new ones and MacBooks all have type c only)

For a few years I was confused between lightning (apple) and thunderbolt(intel).

Just to add:
Firstly, I was aware of the negative reviews about Samsung Shop (2.1 out of 5). But analyzing the reviews, I realized most criticism were from delivery perspective. Since I only watch TV at weekends, I am OK with delay.
Secondly, they sent the product by surface from Noida to Bangalore. Surface shipping may damage the product. But there is replacement available if the unboxing is done by Samsung service personal.
About the TV.
Sound seems low, but then I realized I can hear it well from our kitchen. I am OK with the TV speakers. Black levels and color reproduction are very good.
Coming to OS I have two android TV, 1 WebOS and this one Tizen. I would rate WebOS>Tizen>Android(have too many apps but will lag)
I wish we have magic remote available with Samsung as well.

Sound quality: I didn't find much difference, but Sony would be my pick
Call quality: Excellent on the Bose and pathetic on the Sony
Comfort: Bose wins this one as well, the Sony is too tight for my not so normal head size
