Custom keyboards have become so popular over the past few years. While many are building their own keyboard, a lot of people don’t have the time / patience for that. Many brands are capitalizing on the popularity of custom mechanical keyboards they are offering fully-built boards that rival many custom builds. Today AZIO is releasing their Cascade and Cascade Slim mechanical keyboards. These keyboards offer a 75% design, mechanical key switches, a aluminum top plate, pretty cool colorways, and wired / wireless connectivity. The main differences between the Cascade and Cascade Slim is that the Slim version comes with a low-profile body, switches, and keycaps, whereas the normal Cascade has a full-size body, switches, and keycaps. Today we are taking a look at the Slim version, let’s jump in!
The Cascade Slim comes in a pretty simple retail box that has an outline of the keyboard on the front. Flipping over to the back some of the features are detailed in a few different languages.
Opening the box up and getting everything out we have the Cascade Slim Keyboard, USB cable, keycap and switch puller, and a quick start guide.
