AZIO started this whole retro keyboard thing back in 2016 with the MK Retro keyboard. A year later they took things even further with the Retro Classic, which added a real metal frame and different surface materials to truly give it that classic typewriter look and feel. This year AZIO has updated the keyboard once again, first they have added Bluetooth functionality as well as making the keyboard compatible with both PC and Mac systems. Next we have a new color-design which is called Elwood. It features a metal frame around the keyboard with the top-plate being made of real wood. Of course you have those iconic circular keycaps and mechanical key switches as well. Let’s take a look at this truly unique keyboard…
Special thanks to AZIO for providing us with the Retro Classic Elwood Keyboard to review.
The Retro Classic comes in a very nice retail package. On the front there is a picture of the keyboard and each individual color-design actually has its own box design.
Flipping over to the back there is another photo of the keyboard as well as a list of the main features.
Inside of the main box is another box where you will find the Retro Classic Elwood keyboard, USB Type-C charging cable, Mac layout replacement keycaps, a microfiber cleaning cloth, user’s guide, and warranty card.
