Summary: If you're a home theater PC owner looking for the perfect input device, look no further.

Excerpt: So you’re a road warrior, and recently got a media-centric laptop to take with you on your travels.

Logitech diNovo Mini Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard for PC and PS3 Review
9 June 2008
Conclusion: This li'l keyboard is a wicked-cool design and it works fabulously, effectively addressing some legitimate gripes with other PS3 and PC peripherals vying for a place in the home theater. If you want to operate either of these next-gen source components from the sofa, do it with a diNovo Mini.
Summary: I'm currently stuck in a cheapo apartment lease where they only offer proprietary cable and internet services, which means no HD for me. So, I haven't bothered to get a high-def TV yet... nor have I bothered to set up a dedicated HTPC.
What I have done, however, is connect my laptop to my TV.

Pros: Innovative, miniature design fits in well in living rooms, Thumb-style keyboard is easy to type on, Includes control pad for navigation, Simple setup, Long battery life, Works with PlayStation 3

Summary: A tiny Bluetooth keyboard to control your media centre is a cool idea. However, the diNovo Mini is hard to recommend, particularly given its relatively steep price. If you're paying $200 for a keyboard it better be damned good and the diNovo Mini isn't in our opinion.
Pros: Small, light, rechargeable battery, kind of cute, backlighting
