AZIO Retro Classic Elwood Keyboard Review

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...

AZIO Retro Classic Mechanical Keyboard Review

Every once in a while in the PC Industry there is a product that comes out that is truly unique. Just under a year ago we saw one such product, the AZIO MK Retro Mechanical Keyboard. This keyboard was inspired by classic typewriters with its rounded keys, chrome trim, and black keycaps. When we reviewed it we loved it and felt it was one of the more interesting products we reviewed in a while. Fast forward to today we have the next revision of the original MK Retro, The Retro Classic. It has been updated with a zinc alloy frame, genuine leather surface, mechanical key switches, and full back light illumination. These updates take the original keyboard and take it to the next level! This once again is a very unique product and AZIO was nice enough to send us a first edition run of the keyboard so we have one of the first units available. Let's jump right in and see what this keyboard is all about!

AZIO Armato Gaming Keyboard Review

AZIO has a pretty interesting lineup of keyboards. They have two main categories, Lifestyle and Gaming. Of course we are mainly interested in their gaming products, but they have released products like the MK Retro which were very unique. We took at our last AZIO gaming keyboard about a year ago, and while it was good, we still feel it lacked some necessary features. Well they are back with the Armato which they say offers striking aesthetics and essential gaming functionalities. With that you have Cherry MX Brown mechanical key switches, an aluminum chassis design, 5 dedicated macro keys, and a very interesting volume control. Does the Armato have enough for us to recommend it for your next gaming keyboard? Read on as we find out!

AZIO MGK 1 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

While it’s certainly true that there are those that could care less what input devices they use with their computer they must be the minority with all the options we have available to us. Your input device, your mouse and keyboard, are like your virtual hands that allow you to manipulate the pixels displayed before you and bend them to your will. For this reason the look, feel, and feedback of these devices is very important to us. When it comes to keyboards specifically, each of us has a different physiology and needs. However there are certainly a couple of features that set one keyboard apart from another regardless of personal opinion. It’s no secret that the mechanical keyboard is often the most sought after type of deck thanks to it’s snappy response and luscious actuation. Today we’ll be taking a look at one specific mechanical keyboard, the AZIO MGK 1 RGB. This fully backlit board has RGB LED lighting and of course, those awesome mechanical switches. Follow along as we go through the board and evaluate its potential strengths and weakness’.
