Excerpt: The logitech diNovo (920-000594) mini keyboard is one step above all the other mini keyboards I have ever tried in stores. I hunted around to find one that met all of my needs yet still was easy to use and comfortable in my palm. This one was the only one that passed the test, and I am glad I ended up purchasing it. Logitech does a nice job of structuring the keyboard so that is easy enough to type without mistyping certain letters. This is definitely a great option...
Excerpt: I'm a huge fan of Logitech products. I have mice and keyboards a decade old that just will not quit and there gaming mice are second to none. So in my pursuit to find the perfect HTPC keyboard I had high hopes the Logitech DiNovo Mini would fill that need. So far I am not that impressed. The key feature for the DiNovo Mini is the illuminated keyboard for those nighttime viewings.
Cool looking, functions well and super convenient.

Excerpt: Before owning the Dinovo Mini I had the Logitech MediaBoard Pro. The MediaBoard felt cheap and not worth the money I spent on it. I returned it and purchased the Dinovo Mini and I haven't looked back since. I'm using this to control my media center PC running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and XBMC and it works great. Pairing it with Ubuntu was a snap using the included receiver and I never notice any signal issues (lag, dropped connection, etc).
Excerpt: Overall the Dinovo mini is one of the better HTPC keyboards/mouse combos I've used. The lighted keys and touchpad are great features to have so that you never need a fullsize keyboard or mouse lying around in your living room. After using the device for three years here are the major problems I've noticed with the design - (1) the keys are not aligned in the traditional QWERTY offset, instead they are vertically aligned (2) Using the touchpad as a D-pad is not the best...
Excerpt: this miniature keyboard is great if you really need to type quickly but in terms of everyday carrability, it will not be something to just throw in your pocket. though i guess if you really wanted to you could carry it in a purse. the key quality is pretty good. though since it is a minaturized keyboard, it can be a little hard to type if you have big or chubby hands. regardless it is much larger than the keyboard on some minuature devices.
Excerpt: I love the design of this remote. I love the backlit keys. I love the features. I love that it's bluetooth. It feels like it's the ultimate HTPC remote based on what is said on the box and on Logitech's web site. However, it is not. It's ridiculously expensive, mouse trackpad is not the easiest/best, keys make a loud, clickety sound (like it's about to break), and it's begging to be scratched.
"Nice and small but poor quality and regular freezes"

Pros: Small and incorporates mouse trackpad. Good wireless range. Not a bad design for occasional use in a home theater setup
Cons: Very poor build quality. After 6 months gentle use use some of the keys are responding properly anymore and take a lot of pressure to register. Touch pad can be finicky and erratic. Battery life significantly less than advertised but not a big problem, ju
