WHAT WE DISLIKED:

Package and Hardware:
Azio did a great job on its packaging, despite a small rip on the upper left side of the box which likely happened during shipping. The artwork and layout of the design were quite impressive. The vibrant colors used really made the Mech5 box standout. At the rear of the package you will find the continued artwork and some features of the Levetron Mech5.
While the outer package may seem a bit thin, the actual package is rather sturdy. There is another box inside that holds its contents and protects them.
Once opened, you will see the packing is very robust. The contents are wrapped for protection and an extra cardboad container helps keep everything in place.
Here we have the additional accessories that attach to the keyboard. We also have the instruction manual, software CD, modular number pad, and modular macro keys.
