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 table. quote

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 HTPC without cluttering up your living room with clunky hardware.

Though the touchpad is a bit difficult to get used to, the rest of the device is a joy to use and is supremely comfortable and easy to use. If you have an HTPC this keyboard is a must-buy product, period.

The diNovo Mini is easy to use, made of high quality materials, and is an excellent alternative to using a bulky wireless keyboard or mouse to control a computer.

I've been regularly using my Dinovo Mini since a couple weeks after it went on sale. I have an HTPC hooked up to my HDTV. I searched far and wide for an elegant solution to control my computer from afar. Full sized wireless keyboards look harsh in a living room environment. The Mini is sleek...

So I just got this baby yesterday secondhand on eBay because it's so pricey brand new. It's totally worth it though! First thing you'll notice is just how tiny it really is. The thing really is palm sized! Logitech have fit so many keys and functions onto it without it being...

I purchased a diNovo Mini to be used with my UMPC (which lacks a hardware keyboard) and have found myself not using it as much. The device itself is a good size portable keyboard for your HTPC setup but as an on-the-go keyboard it is a bit too big. I do not recommend this for anything else other...

I just got the Logitech DiNovo Mini from Dell ( I know, ew, but it was %20 off there), and I thought I would do a little review here. First of all I Love this thing. My previous solution for controlling my HTPC was a Logitech LX710 keyboard and mouse combo. While it did the trick, it was bulky...

This keyboard holds a charge for a nice length of time, has integrated bluetooth which is a nice touch, and I actually like the protective clamshell design. Keyboard is easy to use. A close comparision, though smaller of course, would be the design of the Droid keyboard...a single surface with...

I bought one to talk to the Linux box I keep by the TV. I pushed past the considerable sticker shock (it cost about the same as the PC it's talking to) and made an impulse purchase to get my home theatre setup working. Out of the box it never worked terribly well - would fail to wake up...

I use this, as many others do, as a Home Theater PC keyboard/remote. It's pretty great for that - especially with the backlit keys. The ability to switch the touch sensitive pad on the fly from a directional keypad to a mouse is awesome - I do have some minor issues when using it as a directional...

After about 20 min of continuous use, the track pad will not respond properly (tracking or as arrows). You must close the lid and wait for the lights to go off and everything to reset. Occasionally, will not work at all and the battery must be briefly pulled to "reset" the device.

I use my Dinovo Mini almost Daily. My bedroom TV is hooked up to my Dell Studio Mini. I watch a lot of shows on Hulu or torrents. Dinovo mini was the best option to use as a remote. It wasn't cheap but was worth it. Note, I use the dongle not bluetooth. To sum up the experience:...

Pros: 1. Looks Cool 2. Good form factor 3. Works well to control a media center but terrible to control your PC. Even to have to use it once in a while to control the PC gets real old real fast. Cons: 1. The arrow pad is pretty bad and that is a main needed function for HTPC use. 2. Does not...
