Review:Let me start by saying that I really, really wanted to like this keyboard. It looks sooo cool - and wireless and mechanical "clicky" keys - OMG this has to be the best keyboard ever - or so I thought. Such was my fervor that I paid the additional $8.95 for overnight shipping. When I got home and saw the Amazon box, I felt anticipation that I hadn't felt since my honeymoon. There it was - all retro and clicky and un-wired - and all that remained was the unboxing and then ... typing bliss. Now, kids, the facts of life here are that, if you can't type on a keyboard, it really isn't a keyboard at all. Rather than being solid, tactile and clicky like Cherry keys, the Azio's keys had a kind of "rattly", imprecise feel to them. The deal breaker though was that the spacebar actually STUCK! No matter what I tried, it was clear that the problem was that the long plastic stems attaching the spacebar to the switches were binding and so no amount of patience or finagling was going to fix it. This was a simple case of a $219.00 keyboard engineered like a $20.00 keyboard. So, after an appropriate moment of silent contemplation, I admitted to myself that it was not to be, and returned it. I now own a Logitech G613, a perfectly functional plastic, wireless, mechanical-keyed keyboard. I've learned not to seek emotional fulfillment in my hardware anymore. I've moved on. Read more

Review:This is a beautiful keyboard and works quite well. . . It has a fatal manufacturing flaw: The illuminated keys are made of clear plastic with some sort of black paint around each letter. This paint chips very easily and before you know it, you have a transparent key with an illegible and unsightly letter on it. In less than a year, I am on my second set of keys, and they are already chipping like the first set. For this price, they could have easily furnished keys with a far more durable surface. Read more

Review:After using this keyboard for a few weeks, and initially re-adjusting my fingers to the retro round keys, this is easily the best keyboard I have ever used without question. After learning to type on the IBM Selectric, and then transitioning through all the PC keyboards to the Apple Macbook Pro and iMac keyboards over the years, its a incredible thing to have a real quality typewriters keyboard finally. Instantly connects via bluetooth to the Apple laptop and wakes the computer when a key is pressed. Impressive quality and build, all details seem to be worked out. Comes with all the keys for the Mac to pop on in a zip lock baggie. Just make sure you have an image of an Apple Keyboard so you don't put the wrong key in the wrong spot. To pair the keyboard all you need to do is hold down the FN key located at the bottom right of the keyboard and also hold down the minus sign a the top of the number pad. If you want the absolute best with out a doubt this is the keyboard. Im a writer and I have here 6 different keyboards, as I have been always searching for a 'better' keyboard, not including all the keyboards I bought and then returned. This keyboard is so far out of the league as far as current options for keyboards go its just ridiculous. The keyboard is backlit and has the retro-click when typing. The keyboard must weight about 4lbs, and looks like it is built to last. Large rubber feet that grip the desk very well keep the keyboard from moving. Cant recommend this keyboard enough. Read more

Review:Perhaps buying such an expensive keyboard seems an extravagance, yet it shows that beauty has its own price to spread joy! In fact, I bought this product because traditional typing would act as an intriguing inspirational source for writing. Yet I accept that I chose one of the most expensive ones! Nevertheless, what I got out of it (when writing) was more than what I spent. No need to go into technicalities as there are enough reviews on the subject. However, I waited more than a year before I decided to make any comment on Azio Retro keyboard, by letting the keyboard prove its durability. It showed that 8 hours of charging would last for about 8 months. The Bluetooth is steady and sturdy after pairing--if however runs into any trouble (W-indicator begins blinking) one can easily use the charging cable to continue working before seeing into the problem. As for the wrist rest I used "Bailey Leather Ergonomic Computer Wrist Rest Pad" whose length is coincidentally the same as Azio Retro Classic. Read more

Review:I will leave my other review as it still applies but I have to give a 1 star over 5 now as mine died and no longer works, was a lot of money to spend for something that didnt last more than 3 months with basic use. If it can be replaced or fixed I will bring it back to a 4 or 5 star. Bit pricey but compared to a rgb gaming keyboard this things a beast and who doesnt love the retro steampunk style, best keyboard I've ever had, love the multiple settings, and functions, would recommend this to anyone who wants a very well built keyboard with style!

Review:I was very tempted to buy one of these keyboards when Azio's indiegogo campaign raised an insane amount of money. I rarely, if ever, back projects like this because the results are usually underwhelming, or simply never get delivered. Over a year later, I noticed the keyboards are now available at a reasonable price, so I bought 2 (Elwood and Artisan). The Pro's: The keyboards are nice and weighty, the simple white backlit keys make the keyboards look stylish, and slightly understated. A big pro compared to those ghastly pulsating RGB "Gamer" keyboards you find all over the place. The height adjustment mechanism is a neat idea, sadly you can't raise the keyboard as high up as I'd like. Probably because that would mean making the back feet of the board bigger, and only giving people the choice between angled, and more angled; as opposed to flat and elevated. The finish is great, and there are some nice touches like the warranty card for the Elwood model being made of wood, whereas the Artisan comes with a leather card. Neutral (depending on what you like, either pro or con): The keyboard is advertised as having blue switches. Keep in mind that these are Kailh blues, not cherry MX. On top of that, I think they're not the standard ones either. They sit flush with the board, and the backlight is positioned in the middle of the switch. They have a decent amount of travel, they feel tactile, but somehow less well defined compared to the Cherry MX blue's I'm using to write this review on. Because the keys are round, and the function row is positioned a bit higher up than it is on some keyboards, the escape key is *just* out of reach for my pinky. I'm an ardent vim user, and I need my escape key. I haven't had the keyboards for long, but maintenance might be a bit tricky. The Elwood model is finished in nice, unvarnished wood. Dust is a thing we have to contend with in the real world. Black leather can be cleaned with a wet tissue. Veneer gets damaged easily when exposed to water. Round key caps aren't as big an issue as I originally thought they would be. However, I'll get back to this in the Con's section. The Con's: Missing one quite nice feature considering the cost: a USB passthrough/charge port on the keyboard would've been nice. Looking at the keys from the side, some of them are imperfectly positioned. one or two keys seemed to stick out ever so slightly on the Elwood model I bought, and one other key stuck out on the Artisan. I ended up grinding the caps down with some sandpaper. A bit anal/extreme you might think, but it's remarkable how one or two millimetres can really decrease your accuracy. Fingers get snagged by the higher key cap, and because of their rounded edges, you tend to hit the key right next to the offset one. The bluetooth version of this board, I haven't tried, and given the insane price difference, I'm not going to either. No customisation for backlighting (choose which keys to light, which not to light, set different intensities for different keys - e.g. dim the function row and numpad). Conclusion: Overall, these are solid mechanical keyboards. They are well built, and apart from the keycaps, this feels lika a quality item. They are also quite beautiful to behold. I love my keyboards, something that is almost impossible to explain to people when you tell them you love your model M. I had friends spontaneously ask me if they could try these out. The looks drew them in, but what they all said afterwards was how "it feels so nice to type on". Azio seems to have built the mechanical keyboard gateway drug here. Should they ever make a mark II version of these keyboards, I would love to see what they can come up with, and I'd probably buy one (onyx looks nice). If they do, I would really like to see a USB-C passthrough port, maybe backlight customisation, and for the keycaps to be exactly the same height throughout. Nice to haves on top of that would be: ability to tilt the keyboard at a steeper angle, and perhaps a choice of switches (Cherry green switches, lovely switch, not easy to find unless you build your own); maybe something worth considering is a indiegogo campaign to see if there's sufficient demand for aftermarket metal key caps that fit these boards?

Review:If you want a retroactive, typewriter styled keyboard with light up display, I seriously think this product is for you. It is its money's worth. Look at the packaging. It is exquisite. And, when I took out the typewriter keyboard I was amazed by the details and the smoothness of the keys. There is no false advertising. You get what they have displayed. The reaction time of the keyboard is really good as well. I am actually writing the review with the keyboard. I got the Artisan one. The colours are wonderful The black leather and the copper style REALLY works well together. The copper accents actually goes well with the Asus gamer Republic laptop (That also has a copper accents on its body). As you can see the backlit is good in the dark. I took the photos during the daytime but with curtains closed and they were dark, grey curtains. You can also see this keyboard is MAC compatible as I have it hooked up to Mac laptop. I tried gaming with. May take some time to get used to but it works well enough. I played NieR: Automata with this keyboard,. Worked good. The clickity noises are reminiscent to a old time typewriter if not necessarily identical. This is a very good product. I am so glad that after I debilitated I ordered it. Read more

Review:So I've just taken delivery of my new keyboard after my previous mechanical keyboard failed. I loved the love of this keyboard and whilst a little expensive thought I'd have a go. Mine (the bronze leather) looks fantastic. couple of points. 1) the keys are a little slow; they have a good definite click and feel, but take a little more pressure that the usual mechanical keyboard. Almost like a hydraulic feel. If you can imagine that. 2) Purely because of the style of the keyboard and full size the keys are a little further apart. So it does feel like your fingers stretch apart a bit more. However once you adapt you don’t miss a key or stroke. Plus side it IS in UK layout so all the right keys are in the right place with the correct symbols! Big plus. Overall its wonderful, super heavy and oozes will excessive elegance and quality. Very happy with it on day 1. Read more

Review:Beautiful keyboard, comfortable to type on. I would give this 5 stars if not for the letters on the keycaps rubbing off, this started to be noticeable after only a few weeks and now some of the keys are completely ilegable. Dissappointing and this keyboard was not cheap and it is otherwise a great keyboard, I just hope I can find replacement keycaps for this. Read more
