When I reviewed the Lenovo N5901 Keyboard Remote in April 2010, there were very few similar devices to choose from. Back then the Logitech diNovo Mini pretty much had this market all to itself. The diNovo costs £99 and if the user reviews are to be believed, appears to have relibility issues. So when the Lenovo N5901 turned up for less than half the price of the diNovo mini it was a very welcome addition.
However things don't stand still for long and towards the end of 2011 Lenovo released a revised model called (appropriately enough) the N5902. So in this video I'll highlight the differences between the old N5901 and the new N5902 and find out if the new model is a worthwhile upgrade.
IMPORTANT UPDATE 01/02/12 - The USB dongle does infact work on a Mac or a PS3. I stupidly trusted the manufacturer's info on the box and believed that this was a Windows only device.....but surprisingly when I plugged it into the PS3, it worked straight away and even the PS key is mapped to the Windows key. The Mac works equally well. So I apologise for the incorrect info in the video, when the Rii keyboard arrives, I'll be sure to include more information about this undocumented feature in that video, together with a demonstration.
