Logitech diNovo Mini Review

 

When we first played with the Logitech diNovo Mini, we loved the concept and it looked like it solved all [...]

In the end, our experience with the diNovo Mini has been excellent. It is everything that we wanted in a Media Center controller and it is the perfect blend between a remote, a keyboard and mouse, in a beautiful package that looks good on the coffee...

Logitech diNovo Mini

 

The Logitech diNovo Mini has the style and substance to make it an excellent home entertainment keyboard solution.

Backlit keys. Raised keys feels like texting. Media buttons. Bluetooth. Wireless USB dongle. Rechargeable lithium-ion battery

Must press FN in order to right click. Glossy frame and cover tends to attract finger print and smudge marks

Logitech diNovo Keyboard (Mac Edition)

 

If you're picky about your keyboards, the Logitech diNovo Keyboard for Mac has plenty to offer, including programmable hot keys, but if you're not so particular, you can get a comparable device for less.

Spacious palm rest. Matches the Mac aesthetic. Impressive wireless range. Programmable function keys. Works without loading included software

Tricky to sync the first time. Expensive. Receiver takes up USB port

Logitech diNovo Keyboard for Notebooks

 

The Logitech diNovo Keyboard for Notebooks connects to your computer through USB 2.0, and its 2.4GHz wireless receiver can be used with any PC desktop or notebook with satisfactory results. Aside from a different set of shortcut keys across the top,...

Elegant finish; programmable shortcut keys; comfortable typing experience; easy plug-and-play design.

Expensive; lacks illuminated keys and integrated USB ports; no control over wrist angle.

The Logitech diNovo for Notebooks looks sexy and is comfortable for typing, but it's a pricey upgrade for a keyboard that lacks integrated USB ports and backlit keys.

Logitech diNovo Keyboard Mac Edition

 

The Logitech diNovo Mac Edition keyboard offers Mac users a viable alternative to Apple's brand of peripherals. Like many of the other keyboards in the Logitech stable, the diNovo Mac Edition uses Logitech's PerfectStroke system to ensure precision and...

Elegant finish; Mac-specific shortcut keys; comfortable typing experience; easy plug-and-play design.

Expensive; lacks illuminated keys and integrated USB ports; no control over wrist angle.

Logitech diNovo Mini

 

This Bluetooth keyboard and remote combo nicely fills the gap between your media center PC and TV.

Good range ; Lightweight ; Easy setup

Pricey ; Inconsistent touchpad response

At At $149, the Logitech diNovo Mini may cost more than most are willing to pay for a wireless keyboard/mouse device, but if you have a PC set up as a media center, and are tired of looking at that bulky keyboard lying around your living room, it49,...

Logitech diNovo Mini

 

If you've got a Home Theater PC (HTPC), you know how awkward it can be keeping a full-sized keyboard lying around your living room. Logitech feels your pain, and has come up with a miniature wireless keyboard that doesn't take up much space but offers...

Intuitive layout; extremely functional; perfect size and shape

Touchpad is a bit difficult to use with your thumb; can't type very fast on it

If you have an HTPC this keyboard is a must-buy product, period.

Logitech diNovo Mini Keyboard

 

Logitech's diNovo Mini does for home theater PC keyboards what Apple's iPod did to the MP3 player. Granted, there are many more digital music listeners than HTPC owners out there, but if you are a member of the latter category, you'll love the diNovo...

The Logitech diNovo Mini's elegant design won't besmirch your living room; it gives the HTPC owner full cursor control; keyboard is well-suited to situational typing; easy setup; it works with your PS3.

Pricey; touch pad occasionally inaccurate; no Xbox 360 or Apple support.

If you're a home theater PC owner looking for the perfect input device, look no further. Logitech has melded the keyboard of a BlackBerry with a flexible cursor control pad into an attractive, coffee-table-ready package that will let you master your...

Logitech diNovo Cordless Desktop

 

The keyboard and the detachable media pad look the same as those on the original DiNovo. The keys still have a quick, shallow response similar to that of a laptop keyboard, and all of the media-control buttons and hot keys remain intact and...

Sleek looks; supercomfortable keyboard; USB minireceiver.

Portable mouse feels cramped on your day-to-day desktop; expensive considering the cheap mouse; no Bluetooth.

This high-end desktop/portable mouse-and-wireless-keyboard set looks nice but won't work as your permanent gear.

DINOVO MEDIA DESKTOP BLUETOOTH K / B MEDIA PAD & MOUSE

 

Connect as many as seven Bluetooth devices with this sleek and expensive package, our top Bluetooth pick, but expect a slight delay with the mouse and keyboard after you start up your PC.

If you want a modern-looking desktop that can connect up to seven Bluetooth devices, and if you like to have quick access to your music and video, the pricey DiNovo fits the bill
