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!
