Great HTPC remote, good keyboard. Improvement in pretty much every way from the previous version.

Summary: I had the previous version of this, the DiNovo Mini, and this is a improvement in every way. The keys are better, the fliptop is better, and the unifying receiver is a welcome change. For an HTPC remote, it's great. Now it's not a perfect remote, but if you have an HTPC and you don't want to store a full keyboard by your couch, there is no better solution that I've seen. The price drop is nice too.
Summary: Great, but not prefect! Could be THE perfect HTPC remote if they offered key remapping and customization. It also doesnt have adjustable DPI settings but seems to do pretty good on my big screen. If they offered these two features, this remote would be awesome. It already is the best HTPC remote I have been able to find after extensive research. Buy with confidence!
Summary: Have had an old diNovo Mini for some time now (4+ years) and battery life was failing a bit. Instead of replacing the battery this seemed a good price at USD50ish. Wanted it for a Home Theatre PC and it works brilliantly. Plug it in and it works.
Summary: Pros: Works great, simply plug and play w/ wireless usb. Light up keyboard is very nice, especially for in the dark, and is much more comfortable to type on. It switches between a green or orange backlight depending on if you are holding down the function key or not. The thumbpad for the mouse is more comfortable and sensitive. The cover is also nice as it protects the keys from spills, or accidentally hitting buttons and pulling up the menu, for example.
Summary: Yes they work but the slightest bit of moisture and these cheap keyboards are broken. Yeah I know keep water away from the keyboard but accidents happen and both times on both keyboards the water was only a tiny bit and on it for just a second or two and both were destroyed.
Summary: Bought this remote to replace the original remote that came with the sony goggle tv model nsz-gt1 that my dogs ate. Plugged the USB dongle into blu-Ray and worked right from the start, the tv functions worked for volume and input. The power button for the tv doesn't work yet, I may have to configure something else. I liked this remote because it has the same button labels as the original so my wife can figure it out while I'm at work.
Summary: I bought for use with the xbox one. I was hoping to control the cursor using this, but it's just for typing. That's less of a problem with the keyboard and more of a problem with the xbox one.
Summary: this is a game changer of a product... ive never used it for google tv bc i've never had google tv but this machine changed my experience when it comes to my recording studio... i paid $60 for it originally and if it was to ever break i would pay $160 for a replacement if i had to that how much i love this thing... it weighs nothing, its compact but the keys are well put together and allow for normal typing...
