Logitech diNovo Edge detailed review



An expensive keyboard for the style-conscious


The diNovo Edge is Logitech’s costliest offering from its keyboard line-up. It is thin and sleek—just around 1 cm tall.

The frame is sturdy; it has a layer of Plexiglas on top, which gives it a nice, glossy finish. The downside, however, is that you’re bound to get scratches and fingerprints on it. It won’t go down too well with users with sweaty hands either. But there’s no denying it looks great. There’s a brushed metal panel to complement the glossy Plexiglas.

With the short key travel, this feels like a laptop keyboard. A circular touchpad acts as a mouse. Moving your finger around the edges lets you scroll vertically and horizontally. The touchpad is pretty small, though, and is a little cumbersome to use. It can be turned off if you’d like.

There is no numeric keypad, and many of the keys have been made smaller to accommodate them in the small, sleek form factor. The touch slider for volume control is a good addition. Indicators light up when you press some of the keys. Pressing the Function key [FN], for example, lights up the multimedia buttons, which are coupled with the function keys ([F1] through [F12]). There are buttons for putting the PC into standby, for opening the default media player, and for muting system sound.

The wireless Bluetooth connection worked perfectly fine with no glitches from 20 ft or so. Also, we should mention that you get a chic charging dock to go with the looks of the keyboard itself.

Sleek and elegant it may be, but the feel of the keys really lets the diNovo Edge down. The high price tag of Rs 15,995 is another major downside. Other keyboards from Logitech with more features—such as the G11 and the G15—are priced at half that much or less. Those are a lot bulkier, and are meant for gaming. The only saving grace for the diNovo Edge is its looks.
