And though the separate keypad comes across as a little gimmicky during regular desktop use, the way it isolates multimedia control does help make the PC a more family-friendly beast.

If we're getting really picky with the keyboard, we'd have liked the option to set it at a steeper angle. Logitech diNovo Cordless Desktop the inability to angle the keypad at all is a definite oversight. But the real chink in the armour comes in the form of the mouse. It's sturdy enough, but with such a small body and only the basic three buttons on offer it seems mismatched with the rest of the bundle. But then it does offer exemplary performance, and you can't really argue with that. All these buttons can be reprogrammed easily using Logitech's software drivers which only work with Windows or XP.

Logitech diNovo Cordless Desktop

In the top right-hand corner of the keyboard is a set of volume controls for media playback. The main letter and function keys are extremely thin and have a larger-than-normal surface area. The up-and-down travel is surprisingly deep for such a thin keyboard, and there's a sound-dampening layer below the keys to keep you from annoying anyone nearby even if you really pound away at the keyboard. The overall design and feel of the diNovo reminds me of those on IBM ThinkPad notebooks, arguably one of the Logitech diNovo Cordless Desktop slim keyboard designs on the market. Story continues below advertisement The keyboard has no status LEDs, which is annoying.

Instead, an on-screen text message does pop up if you've just turned a lock-key on or off, though, which should prevent you from activating these keyboard features accidentally. Number Pad Then there's the part of the diNovo that really makes Logitech diNovo Cordless Desktop stand out from the competition in the keyboard market - the detachable number pad.


The pad runs on a pair of AA alkaline batteries included. Its outer right-hand edge is a mirror of the keyboard, with the same silver volume and media controls. Buttons above the standard number keys change the pad from standard keyboard numberpad mode to calculator mode. Above the keys is a wide greyscale LCD screen that displays the time and date, the room temperature, and calculations done on the pad. When the Logitech software is installed, hitting the Number key turns the pad into a standard keyboard number pad. Hitting "calculator" turns it into, well, a calculator. From a hardware point of view, though, the number pad shares some Logitech diNovo Cordless Desktop weaknesses with its Bluetooth cousin. First of all, there's no way to lock it to the side of the keyboard, so it just floats free and can get moved around.

I found myself constantly having to line it back up with the keyboard. But it does give you the flexibility to place the number pad wherever you choose, on the right or left side of the keyboard, which many people hello lefties will like. Story continues below advertisement Secondly, there are no "legs" to tilt the back of the number pad up a bit, as there are on the keyboard. If you have the keyboard legs extended, the top of the number pad will be lower than the keyboard and tilted at a different angle - annoying if you use the keypad a lot for work or games. The Mouse Ah yes, the mouse. While the keyboard is gorgeous and the numberpad is useful and innovative, the mouse looks like it was designed as an afterthought - by an entirely different team.

Unlike the high-quality keyboard and pad hardware, the mouse is made of cheap-looking silvery plastic.


It's also chunky and angular, and basically isn't all that pleasant to use for more than short periods. It works with either hand, but isn't comfortable in either one - the lines are too angular and the mouse is a bit on the small side. The idea behind the smaller, battery-powered mouse is presumably that you no Logitech diNovo Cordless Desktop need the bulky receiver for the rechargeable mouse that came in the original set. This makes the DiNovo Cordless Desktop more portable.

Instead of the big base station, Logitech includes a standard USB RF minireceiver not Bluetooth like the original that is relatively easy to throw Logitech diNovo Cordless Desktop a travel bag along with the mouse. But have you been clamoring for a full-size keyboard an expensive one, no less to take on business trips?
