If you have a media PC, you know that things could be made easier, had you have the right equipment. Or, do you have a regular PC but want a cool way to be able to control music while not at your desk? The S 510 Media Keyboard is a set that’s complete with a remote control. Let’s jump right into the review to see how great this set is.

Introduction

Logitech is a name I have personally come to trust over recent years. I have used many products by them, and have never had anything terrible to say about any of them. It’s evident that they make sure that their products meet high standards, because they do not want to tarnish their well established name.

Over the course of our being online, we have taken a look at Logitech Mice, Keyboards and even a joystick. Today, we are taking a look at something slightly different though, something that’s really beneficial to HTPC users.

I personally have never been into the HTPC scene. I don’t even watch many movies… and I’m not even into the ‘picture slideshow’ thing. After using this set though, I began thinking a little differently, and realized the potential and how much fun there could be in an HTPC. Now if I only had room for such a PC! Before we jump in, here is a quick blurb about Logitech and the S 510.
