It Works

 

This keyboard is not as satisfying as my mechanical keyboard but it works reliably and has backlit keys which is nice when the room light is off or low.

- Backlit Keys

- None

Not sure whether it's a keyboard or a flickering hunk of plastic.

 

Don't buy this keyboard. Save your precious money and go for a brand name keyboard that will last you more than 10 months. Oh and buy from newegg, not directcanada. Every single PC part I have bought from there has broken, now totalling 8 parts.

- Multi-key rollover seems to be working, I haven't run into any issues. - Keys are well lit in most lighting conditions and the alphabet keys are easy to read.

- All three lights (Numlock, etc) burnt out within a month. - Within six months, the black paint on the keys started to disappear (L, A, M keys in particular). Sharpie-ing the keys back to normal didn't work. - Now some of the buttons have started...

Update :: black starting come off

 

I will wait to see what response, if any, Azio may choose to make about this issue. Contacting Azio Jan 9 2016 since no response yet... Will follow-up later.

As I may have stated in my earlier review, it types great, key spacing is wonderful, volume knob and status indicator LEDs are great too. ...but... see cons.

But, it appears that unlike my previous experience with Azio products, this keyboard is painted black and unpainted where the LED light shows through. The paint is beginning to come off, arrow keys, often used letter keys, the space bar is beginning to...

Horrible. I'd have been better off sticking forks in my electrical outlets...whatever would come of the electrified dynamo of forking off would have b

 

There aren't any.

Keys fit TOO snug on the mounts, creating unpredictable and un-necessary frustration typing out "T-H-E" or even pressing any keys at all. Seriously, it got to the point where I would sit down at my keyboard and the moment my pinky began to press down...
