Posted October 1, 2015 by Jake in Peripherals


Price at time of Review: $80, $90


Sleek "floating keys" design; Well priced; Clean illumination effects; Choice of switches on MGK model


Lack of advanced customization/software; No choice of switches for RGB model
Solid illuminated mechanical keyboards that have all the essentials covered and won't break the bank.

Mechanical keyboards have become very popular, and if you haven’t used one before, you simply don’t know what you’re missing. Particularly if you’re of a slightly older vintage who grew up becoming accomplished touch typists, then you really need to reconsider your next PC-related purchase by looking carefully at a mechanical keyboard.

We certainly love to see quality and value in computer products. Most of us dream of having fantastic gear, but few have the lofty budgets to buy them. Azio is a company that is likely not too well known by many PC users, except for perhaps some of the diehards in the crowd. In truth, Azio has been around for 15 years but has been recently expanding their peripheral lineup, with an emphasis on mechanical keyboards. More importantly, however, Azio has been focusing on providing mechanical keyboards with solid features at very reasonable prices.

Specifically we’re looking at two of their latest mechanical keyboards today, the MGK1-K and MGK1-RGB. Both are sleek and functional, both come with different illumination effects, and both come with very attractive price tags. Can these two boards stand out?

Let’s take a closer look at the Azio MGK1-K and RGB mechanical keyboards to see if they can manage to impress.

    nice review. I have both the azio blue and brown switch model. Incredible bargains, snatch em while you can because they are getting scarce, especially the rgb model. Can’t bring myself to pay the corsair tax. Highly recommended.
