Best budget keyboard


I believe this is the best budget illuminated keyboard out on the market. I have had it over a year and it works great for gaming and for typing long reports (30-50pgs each once every other week) and the illimination has greatly reduced the ammount...

Have yet to find one yet

Not so good


Lucky that this doesn't always happen so I still give it 2 stars. I hope that this is just I'm unlucky and only me is experiencing this issue and I will be sent another one. Otherwise I don't suggest anyone who wants to play games to buy this keyboard...

Nothing fancy. Just a normal keyboard with backlit

The keys sometimes don't work as it suppose to be. I play BF4 a lot and the 1,2,3,4 keys are under extremely heavy use. But the thing is, sometimes all those keys just bring me to the menu (the esc key) and it really screw up my games A LOT OF TIMES

Still an Excellent Keyboard, An Update


I have my PC keep Power on to the USB Ports and I set it to Blue, a more relaxing color. I Tried using it with back-lit off and didn't like the looks of the keys, Best with Back-lit on. Not a keyboard for a soft touch-typist.

Like the large Lettering and back-lighting of every key made it a plus

Scroll/Numb/Caps Lock LEDs can not be seen readily at an angle on my keyboard. Not a big issue ; Holding the Back-light switch for a few seconds powers off the LEDs. However, if power is removed from Kbd it reverts back to default. Not a big issue

On Second Thought


I wrote a positive review for this keyboard when I got it in 2012, however, I've been forced to rethink it because just three months after I got it, the keys started to jam. It got to the point where, unless you put two fingers on, for example, the...

Cheap ; Large print keys ; Very bright backlighting with three color choices

You cannot turn the backlighting off ; The keys get sticky fast

AZIO Large Print Tri-Color Illuminated Keyboard


The biggest concern would be the low profile keys I think for some. I have not encountered sticking. I mostly type on my lenovo thinkpad yoga, but when I use the AZIO, I do not find myself having any issues with it. Appreciate the keyboard for what it...

Love the backlight, easy to read. Inexpensive ; I am particular about my typing and am a pretty fast typer (~70-85 WPM). I found this to be an easy transition and quite comfortable. I purchased another one for a gift as well

No dedicated sleep button, keys are lower profile than some keyboards, which can take some time adjusting to. Doesnt have gold plated connector (nitpicking here, given the price, which is why no loss of egg)

Better Keyboard


the large characters on the keys. Blue and Red colors make daytime and night time typing all around easier

None that I have encountered

Consumer review by:

Looks nice, performance not so much


This keyboard will defeat the most dedicated touch-typist. If you are a "hunt-n-peck" typer, this board probably won't cause you any more difficulty than any other board, but if you are a speedy touch typer, you will grow to hate this keyboard as I...

Large easy to read backlit keys, switch to toggle through 3 color choices

poor ergonomics, horrible key action, keys stick unless you strike them perfectly vertically

Consumer review by:



This keyboard is truly the perfect product for the quick typist. The keys are very responsive and provides fluid typing. The illumination is truly a treat, providing very vibrant and visible illuminated color choices (I'm tickled purple!). The red and...

Possibility of receiving a defective keyboard that causes a very hard key press due to a manufacturer defect, however easy process w/ Azio to get it replaced. Please see note above :-)

Consumer review by:

pretty good for the price


I like the large Letters- getting older = Over 50 and it is nice to see the keys easily

Nothing at this price
