- Good Choice
I have had my PC connected to our HDTV for a couple of years now and it was always a pain to sit-down with the keyboard and discover that the mouse is somewhere else. Not anymore. The Logitech diNovo Edge has worked thus far as it claims to. It's compact, clean looking, easy to use, and can easily be tucked away when needed. I used it with my MacBook Pro via bluetooth and my PC with Vista via the USB adapter. I didn't have to do anything special when installing it on the MacBook outside of the bluetooth wizard, but I did have to uninstall all other keyboard and mouse drivers on the PC with Vista before using the Logitech diNovo Edge....more info
- great keyboard
keyboard is very appealing to the eye, very thin and very sturdy. just like using a keyboard on a laptop. haven't used any of the special functions, but the scroll pad works well. I've heard alot of people complain that the sensitivity is too high. I think that it's just fine, you just have to get used to the placement of it.
The only thing that I wish it had was backlit keys, and a number pad would be nice. all in all it's a great product, I've had it for a couple months now and have only charged it twice. ...more info
- Great keyboard, when it works
There's already a lot of reviews on this product that give great detail on the pros & cons of the features of this keyboard, and I'm not going to reiterate any of that. Instead I wanted to add some insight into my experience of the keyboard's functionality.
I've had the product for about a year now and am submitting my review after sufficient use. I'm on my 3rd keyboard and can't really praise it for its dependability. The first one worked for a little while and then began having problems with the mousepad/scroll feature. The second one was dead on arrival and was immediately replaced. The third works fairly well, but has a much shorter battery life than the first one I had, and there is very little time from when the low-battery light flashes to when it is completely out of battery. More annoying is the frequency with which it loses connection with the computer. Sometimes it's just a brief loss of connection (just a few seconds). Other times you have to go to the computer and hit the reset button on the USB transmitter in order to reconnect the signal. Not a huge deal, but for a top of the line keyboard, it doesn't really deliver top of the line performance. The company is fairly easy to work with to get a replacement, but they require that you send back the original before sending the replacement--they refused my suggestion of taking my credit card number and shipping me out a replacement first in case they never received the original back.
In summary, IF the keyboard functioned in a dependable manner, I would love this keyboard. However, it's sort of like owning a high-end sports car: it's fun to use, but it's very temperamental. Any potential buyers out there should know that they may experience similar issues. I can understand a product having an occasional issue, but for one owner to have 3 different ones all having issues, that is concerning....more info
- I'm considering a second for the other computer
This is simply the best keyboard I've ever used. The touchpad works absolutely great. I needed a keyboard with integrated touchpad so that I could leave the ThinkPad laptop closed and out of the way, and instead use an external keyboard and flat screen LED display.
This has worked so well, I'm considering getting a second for the other computer....more info
- Internittent keyboard issue
I bought this keyboard to complete a pc I built. It started to work fine but after a few minutes it started locking up and then missing keystrokes. I installed the latest drivers but still had the same problem. Running Vista Home Premium x64. Sent it back. The keyboard feel is good but too unreliable for me. Maybe it is something about my environment that was the problem but I don't have the time to waste to investigate it....more info

Keyboard was easy to set-up. Worked well and I enjoy not accidently bumping the touchpad during use....more info
- Great except...
This productis great it gives amazing wireless control with no lag time, has many functional button including a volume slider for the HTPC user (which works well with or without the software although it works differntly in both case) now i have found two problems and i do need to send the keyboard back to get another, the touchpad scrolling is not functioning correctly, which means i cannot scroll with my bluetooth mouse wheel, and sometimes when i mash two buttons it will scroll, also turning of the touchpad means that it scrolls all the way down to the button of the page and you cant get up ( i beleive this is a glitch and as soon as i get a spare mouse and keyboard im going to try getting another), the only other problem i have found with this keyboard is that although the entire front is sleek and stylish the back is bright orange WHY?? simply once you go Dinovo its difficult to go back which is why i havent tried to get a replacement for even with the bug i like it better than any keyboard i have used.
im using this keyboard on a HTPC and gaming computer sitting at about 4 ft away from the computer reclinded in a lounge chair with it sitting upon my lap for this it is amazing. ...more info
- Very Nice Keyboard
I bought this to use with a PS3. It connected easily and functions well. My laptop keyboard drank a beer, so we started using this with the laptop. My laptop had no bluetooth, but the included software and dongle were also easy to install and worked within minutes. The keyboard is styled great, and the buttons are among the best feeling of any keyboard I have used. The button are easy to customize, and the volume controller worked with out changing anything. The round scroll wheels took awhile to get used to but is better that the standard square ones. I would only change one thing - the touch pad could be slightly larger. The battery life is extremly long on this keyboard, we only charge it overnight every few weeks. Overall this is a great keyboard, and i would reccomend it to anyone....more info
- Great Wireless Keyboard Have Recommended To All My Friends
Have owned this keyboard for about a year and so far it has been awesome. Everything I did not like about my original wireless keyboard (Adesso) works with this keyboard.
Most reviews have already examined this keyboard in detail so I do not have much to add, all I can say is the battery life is great, quality is great and it was worth every penny.
The only problem I had with it was when I plugged in the bluetooth dongle originally, I had mouse tracking problems and keyboard key problems. After moving my desktop away from the stereo system and plugging the dongle into the front which placed it even farther away from the stereo and TV, I have been completely satisfied.
Also this keyboard does work fine with the Windows 7 RC, after installing W7 I did not even need drivers and was up and running with no problems. The setpoint software is interesting but not needed for most uses....more info
- Great keyboard, better HTPC keyboard.
The Logitech diNovo Edge keyboard is indeed a great find. I have been looking for about 6-8 months now for a keyboard that is under $200, sleek, solid and includes a built-in mouse.
Solid feel, quick response (I believe they talk about some rapid type technology of sorts in their product propaganda, er, details.). The keyboard is very thin, and a good weight - while on your lap it does not feel like a paper plate nor does it feel like a brick.
The range is good (bluetooth - ~30 ft).
Pairing could not be easier.
WORKS IN THE BIOS.
Works well under both linux (test with Ubuntu 8.04 64bit, 8.10 64bit and 9.04 32/64bit), and windows vista 64bit.
If one looses connection, a simple press of the connect button on the keyboard, and then on the usb bluetooth dongle will fix that.
Battery life is incredible (mine claims that I still have about 50 days left off of one charge.
Charging base-station is a little awkward to get the keyboard on there just right (though, I'm sure that over a little bit of time it won't be as hard).
Mouse is not very responsive and a little harder to use than something like a macbook pro's touch pad.
The touchpad will allow you to scroll by running your fingers vertically on the right side - but it's not the greatest.
The diNovo definitely does it's job, and does it well. The keyboard includes little lights that will illuminate ABOVE the function keys (no, the keyboard is not backlit), and the volume line lights up to the left as you move your finger up or down. It's a very nice keyboard, but if you plan to use it at a PC that is for extended use, or graphics design, or gaming or anything mouse intensive, buy a separate mouse....more info
- I love this keyboard
I bought one because I have a tiny desk in my home office. There isn't enough room for a full-sized keyboard and a mouse. I finally found this and it suits my purposes wonderfully. A short time after, I purchased a 30-in wide monitor for a different PC in the same room - my gaming PC, where I'm usually sitting on a small sofa. Having a keyboard on my lap was fine but a mouse on the sofa beside me, not so good. I liked how this keyboard was working at my desk so I purchased another.
My only complaint is that I should be able to set the pressure setting for the touchpad. Every laptop that uses a touchpad has software that allows you to control the pressure and this one needs it as my tapping is clearly too soft for the default settings. Other than that this works like a charm. Even having it on all day and working, I don't need to charge it more than every couple of days....more info
- Worth the outrageous price
This is a fantastic keyboard. The wireless connection is instantaneous, the action on the keys is great and the keyboard has an on/off switch. My only complaint is that although this is a bluetooth keyboard, the receiver does not give the computer bluetooth capability. I still need a separate bluetooth dongle....more info
- Nice design, but useless (for me) as it loses connections
I recently purchased this item to replace a DiNovo Media keyboard that I have had for 2 years and loved. Big mistake! While I like the design, and the very tactile and positive yet low profile keyboard, it simply won't work for me, since every time I am away from the keyboard for a while, it goes to sleep and loses the bluetooth connection. I am using the built in bluetooth, which worked well with the former keyboard. I don't like or wish to have extra plugin devices.
I will be returning this item unless technical support can find a fix, although as of now, I am not optimistic as they sent me solutions for a different keyboard even though I had provided the serial and model number.
Update: Several email conversations with technical support failed to resolve my problem. They didn't seem to understand that I was trying to use the internal bluetooth connection. I did try the supplied receiver, and must confess that this worked extremely well, in fact more responsive that my previous DiNovo Media keyboard. ...more info
- Love the feel, hate the number pad.
Other than the complete lack of a number pad I love this keyboard. The battery lasts forever. It has good range. The mouse pad is kind of nice to have, although I have an MX air mouse as well, sometimes it's nice to not have the air mouse sitting around or have this mouse to use if the other one dies. The mouse stopped working for a while but apparently that was due to either dirt or lint in it or a software update. I blew it out and reinstalled the software and updated it and it's been fine ever since.
I love the look of it. I like the function buttons. I like the software. I like Logitech stuff. I have this, the MX Air and z-5300 speakers and they're all great....more info
- I LOVE THIS KEYBOARD!!!!!!
I was skeptical at first and put off buying this keyboard for a long time. I was worried about some of the negative reviews. However, I have not had one problem with this keyboard. It works exactly as I expected and programming the "A" "B" "C" "D" buttons was a breeze and I'm in no way a technologically savvy person.
The only thing I miss is the number pad on the right. I still find myself reaching over only to find I have to use the numbers above the letter keys. But this is no big deal, just a habit I will have to break.
One thing that frustrated me the first time it happened was when my boyfriend borrowed it to use on his PlayStation 3. When I went to use it again on my computer, I had to manually resynch it. But this again is an easy process by pressing the button on the signal receiver in my USB port and the Bluetooth button on the back of the keyboard. Presto, problem solved. Other than these two very minor issues, this keyboard is as close to perfect as can be obtained at this time.
- Perfect for when your living room becomes your office
With daughter #2 reaching the age where she needed her own room, I was banished from my office and forced (gently:) to move my entire desk and computer setup into the living room. When that happened, the diNovo Edge was my compensation / consolation prize.
On the plus side:
- No more ugly MS keyboards for me! This thing looks great in the living room!
- The keys are wonderful (perfect for me as a touch typist).
- I can use it with multiple machines through my KVM (an Iogear Miniview GCS1204) via its USB 2.0 hub.
On the minus side:
- The touchpad isn't much use to me, since I've got an MX Revolution mouse right next to it. I would much rather have a numeric keypad, which I use infrequently but still waaaay more than the touchpad.
- The wristrest isn't that comfortable relative to most other keyboards. The Logitech logo on the brushed aluminum looks cool but scratches my palms....more info
- This Keyboard Rocks!
I use this keyboard with my Dell M1530 laptop and Windows Vista. The main reason for having the Logitech was to connect the laptop to my flat panel TV and use the Bluetooth keyboard remotely. The DiNovo works very well, and it is also one elegant piece of equipment. The keyboard is very thin and rests in its charging station when not in use. The workmanship is excellent, looks and feels high end. The mousepad works well. The battery lasts forever it seems. ...more info
Amazing keyboard, when i firat opened it noticed that the number 2 and 3 keys were not on the board the were somewhere in the box. i have had laptops for about 7 years now so by now i know how to reinsert the keys that pop out.
Once the keys were reinserted just pressed connect on the USB key and the keyboard and voila i was done, everything works as advertised and the backlight when using the mouse is simply amazing.
Because i had to reinsert the key myself i am giving it 4 out of 5 stars, i am just glad it was something simple to rectify....more info
- The World's Most Advanced Keyboard? Probably.
Writing this review on the diNovo Edge right now. I probably wouldn't have bought this keyboard if my friend hadn't had one for a couple years. He uses it for his media computer in his entertainment room with a 72 inch hi-def projection system. I'm using it for the exact same purpose, but sadly my setup is only a 42-inch 1080p 120hz LCD. He had no problems with it under adverse party conditions, so I believe it will be able to handle anything I subject it to as well. So far I've used it for only basic uses over the last few hours, but have already thought up some pros and cons from my experiences with his(I already weighed these before buying, but they may add insight to someone on the fence).
Cons--No number pad. Heard of glitches/compatibility issues with Macs. Don't know, as I am a PC person all the way...with the exception of monitors. Mac monitors are the best on the planet(which you of course have to pay a kings ransom for). It creates laziness, where you may stop using your primary workhorse/gaming PC and find yourself sitting on the comfortable couch endlessly surfing forums while "multitasking" with iTunes or MPC.The touchpad doesn't always scroll perfectly. Haven't tried all functions, but I'd imagine selecting Ventrilo for VoIP, gmail for email, MPC for media etc... wouldn't be the default, but I haven't tried it yet. Interested in how well the [A B C D] macros work. Function key on right instead of left. Doesn't come with very much documentation on how to use said extra functions.
Pros--::INHALE:: Beautiful and classy like Audrey Hepburn. And just as slim. INSANE battery life. Charge once a every few weeks--that's not a joke. Full sized portable keyboard with nice feedback. Feels very solid as well. Touchpad feels more natural than most laptop touchpads. Left click on right AND left side of keyboard makes using mouse more reliable on my lap. Bluetooth is far superior to IR(especially) or RF. Was plug and play for me on both XP SP2 and Vista SP1 for basic functions(keyboard, mouse, basic media keys). Didn't even install SetPoint 3.3 yet to use advanced functions.
In summation--if you're seriously thinking of connecting a media PC to your entertainment center, you'll want to get a wireless keyboard/mouse. This has everything you'll probably need, AND it looks good on an end table. If this is for your workhorse/gaming PC, you may just want to get another keyboard for cheaper. For my uses, it's perfect....more info
- Stylish and nice to use
First, I'm going to break this into three parts - the "keyboard" itself, the touchpad, and the extras
This keyboard has a "tight" layout - very little wasted space and everything is fairly close together. It's kind of like a laptop, but with nicer keys. They're all nice and springy but easy to push.. There's no number pad, but since this is a wireless keyboard, most people want it smaller rather than an extra 3-4 inches long. It's very nice to type on
The touchpad takes a little getting used to if you normally use your left hand. However, it's much nicer than the middle-mounted touchpads you might find elsewhere in that I don't keep slapping it with my palm. You can turn it on and off through hardware buttons, and if you don't like the tap to click thing, there's a dedicated "click" button on the left side. It seems like it would be a little awkward to use, but I just tap the pad anyway. In addition to being a touchpad, it also has scroll features - I feel these are of dubious use but they seem to work well enough.
This keyboard has a lot of extra button features. It has dedicated zoom buttons on the left, and then you can program F1-F4 and F9-F12 using SetPoint. The "FN" key is a little awkwardly located on the right side where the context menu button normally goes, but I don't normally use the extra feature sort of things anyhow. F5-F8 are media control buttons, and there's a "sleep" button in the top left, complemented by a "media" button in the top right. Thankfully, Logitech really got this one right - not only is the sleep button where it's hard to press it accidentally and it's harder to press than a regular key, but it's also programmable (mine is programmed to "do nothing")
This is an amazing keyboard. My main goal was to have a wireless board where I didn't need to sit near a mouse, and this performs admirably. Whether it's worth over $100 to you is your decision, but unlike the $70 mouse-keyboard combo I got last Summer, this seems sturdy enough to last for a couple years at least....more info
- Great feel, not reliable for me
Great key feel, which is the most important thing. However it hasn't been reliable for me. The first keyboard I received had intermittent bluetooth issues, so I got it replaced under warranty. A year or so later that keyboard developed battery issues, where it would only run for a day or less between charges. To Logitech's credit, they did send replacement keyboards under warranty. A buddy who has the same keyboard noted that he finds it doesn't charge every time you put it in the charger... sometimes you have to insert it several times before it actually starts charging. So I'm wondering if my battery issues were maybe charging issues. At any rate, the three year warranty makes these reliability issues less painful, but I still don't like having to send it back so often....more info
- Works thru closet doors, great battery life
I have a computer in a closet which is wired to my flat-screen TV on the bedroom wall. I bought this keyboard to use with that computer, about a year ago. I use it daily for about 1/2 hour to an hour a day, and charge it every other month, though only once the warning light changed color to require charging. The keyboard is very convenient and trackpad works well in lieu of a mouse (which would be hard to use while lying on the bed). The keys have a good tactile feel. There is no wireless interference. Oh, and it looks cool.
I leave the keyboard on the side of my bed, careful to put it with the right side (enter key) up. If I put it the reverse way (qwerty or left side up), there's a key to put the computer to sleep, which I tend to hit when grabbing it. If I put the computer to sleep I then need to grab the stepladder and go into the closet to rectify, which is a drag. It would be nice if I could disable the button, but after I did it once or twice I learned how to avoid it.
I am very happy with this purchase, and definitely recommend it....more info
