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.
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.
Pros: Looks good, illuminated keyboard, battery life satisfactory for casual HTPC use. light weight easy install good reception and connectivity
Cons: key functions such as mouse right-click (and dashes), escape button and arrows require multiple button pressing, no scroll (instead there is page up/down), mouse pad with life of its own..., perhaps a bit too small (but that's a matter of taste), after a

Pros: Bluetooth, couch usable mouse (sort of), clamshell design (almost) really other than bluetooth all of the pros are almost pros. ( like they would be pros is they were implemented with more care and thought)
Cons: Size (i know i know its suposed to be small but if you get one it will be about 50% smaller than you were thinking) Faulty down button (seems to be more than just mine per other reviews) glitch-tastic (sometimes it hangs, some times it doesnt work)
Pros: Ultra compact, extremely long battery life, easy setup out of the box, QWERTY keyboard
Cons: NO CAPS LOCK, NO Function keys so u can't access BIOS during PC reboot, mouse nav sometimes jumps randomly, typing w/thumbs on compact KB kind of slow; Hard cover doesn't fold under KB when open but just sticks up. No battery-life indicator on KB.
