Logitech's diNovo Edge is liked by reviewers on many points, including its sleek design, responsive keys, wireless capability and unique recharging system. But where critics say it pulls away from other keyboards and perhaps justifies its high cost is in the arena of media center PCs. High-end machines designed to make the most of media experience need a well-appointed, reliable keyboard, and the diNovo Edge fits that bill. Outfitted with Bluetooth capability and a rechargeable battery that can last up to two months on a single charge, the diNovo Edge can do double duty in the living room controlling a connected home theater. Experts love its designer styling and its media-centric features including an iPod-like TouchDisc and one-handed navigation.
One thing all reviewers agree on -- the Logitech diNovo Edge is a beautiful keyboard. So beautiful, in fact, that some reviewers refer to it glowingly as a piece of art and don't stop admiring it long enough to critically examine the keyboard's performance. This tendency makes for some unbalanced reviews, such as the ones from APHNetworks.com and CoolTechZone. Luckily, Jeremy Atkinson, from ExtremeTech, takes a more critical look at the diNovo Edge. Digital Trends also covers the diNovo Edge well, with findings similar to those at ExtremeTech.
Jeremy Atkinson walks readers through every stage of set-up, software installation and use of the Logitech diNovo Edge. Atkinson's findings are supported and reliable. He grants the diNovo Edge eight points out of ten, deducting points for an extraordinarily high price tag.

Digital Trends is unique among reviewers in that its article on the Logitech diNovo Edge is accompanied by a short video that demonstrates the keyboard's major features. The review itself is complete and objective, though not particularly comparative. The diNovo Edge is rated 8.5 out of 10 by the site.

Jonathan Kwan writes extremely descriptive, thorough reviews. When it comes to the Logitech diNovo Edge, most of his attention remains on the keyboard's design; only three sentences, in fact, deal with the keyboard's actual performance.

These keyboards don't appear to have been actually reviewed by Shamoon, leaving us unsure on what basis they were determined to be the best. The diNovo Edge is identified as a Recommended model although, again, we have no idea of the basis for that determination.
