    AZIO MGK1 reviews

    MGK1 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (White LEDs, Kailh Blue) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great keyboard but some caveats... There is no problems with its base functions. I prefer white LED over the red and blues. Heck, I'd even take orange or yellow. Its fairly minimalistic, which I like. And it looks like a copy of the k70, which is fine as well. However, there seems to be some odd problems with it. The spacebar started to squeak after a while. Probably something metal that wasn't lubed well enough. Easy fix though. The tab key is noticeably dimmer than the other keys. I took off the keycap, but the problem isn't with the LED backlighting, but seems to be with the keycap itself.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best combination of price and features. Pros: White LEDs that don't require extra drivers to operate; Blue switch clicky feel and sound; Made my boss jelly and now he wants one; Volume wheel with mute button; Wrist rest; Brushed aluminum surface with individual cutouts per keycap reduce dirt getting inside the keyboard; Adjustable LED brightness; Reasonable price; Not tweeny gamery looking I use this in an office. Cons: I prefer the smoother style volume wheel that's in my Corsair K70. Other thoughts: USB pass through and a softer or rubberized wrist rest like my Corsair would make this thing perfect, but I didn't take off because no where else could I find all these features in the color I want at a reasonable price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply amazing! Perfection right out of the box. The switches feel amazing and so does the finish on the key caps. It is comfortable to use with or without the wrist rest as well. It is also without a doubt the best built keyboard I have ever used. The braided USB cable is very thick and heavy and the gold plated plug should last for years and years. The utilitarian design doesn't take away from the looks of they keyboard either. The lack of software does not hinder this keyboard at all either. Volume and mute controls are flawless as are the media controls. Windows key lock functionality is also great for gaming, which is what this keyboard excels at. If you're looking for a no-frills keyboard that feels amazing and is built like a tank without an enormous price tag, you just found it. I hope to test out many more offerings from Azio in the near future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not just for gaming! Very fine indeed - this keyboard makes typing a pleasure, well build well spaced keys, having the letters backlite is a joy. lights can be dimmed or shut off. keys have a good sound and feel - removable wrist rest feels great - can't think of thing i would change
