This ultra-durable keyboard is designed for heavy combat. The Cherry mechanical switch extends its lifespan to 50 million keystrokes. You can stop wasting time reaching for Macro keys all the way across the keyboard since its modular D-Pad can be adjusted to perfectly complement your hands natural gaming position. As we know, too many Macro keys lumped up together in the same place or split to all corners of the keyboard will only bring additional confusion and stress. AZIO’s simplistic design approach improves your speed and accuracy by keeping just 5 Macro keys to the immediate left and 6 additional ones (D-Pad) directly above your hand -- all at your fingertips.

What’s more, you can attach the Numeric Keypad on the left-wing of the Mech5 and instantly add 17 additional Macro keys to your arsenal. Or attach it to the right-wing and use it as a standard numeric keypad or leave it detached to make more room for your mice. Virtually all keys across the Mech5 are user programmable! In addition, this keyboard is designed to be water resistant, featuring special seals and drainage gutters. Spilling your drink on your keyboard is no longer an excuse for losing!

  • newegg Mechanical Keys The Cherry Black mechanical switch is widely believed to provide the best gaming experience. Featuring a linear design, the Cherry Black mechanical switch is ideal for rapid pressing of keys. And the right stiffness helps prevent accidental key presses.
  • newegg Fully Programmable Keys The included Software allows for full customization of the entire keyboard and 11 dedicated Macro-keys.
  • newegg Modular Design: The numeric keypad can be attached to either side of the keyboard or remain detached. The included Macro Keypad module is the first of many accessories that will take advantage of the keyboard’s rail system.
  • newegg Macro D-Pad The add-on Macro D-Pad expansion allows for 6 additional programmable keys. The expansion module rail enables custom positioning by sliding the D-Pad left or right.
  • newegg Anti-Ghost Ensures multiple commonly pressed keys register when pressed simultaneously.
  • newegg Water-Resistant Engineered to remain functional even if accidentally exposed to liquid. Do not flip or shake the keyboard and the liquid will properly drain itself.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard

Pros: This keyboard has Cherry MX Black switches which I feel are a great switch on the market. The modularity of the keyboard helps to let me make it the way I want. I also enjoy the programmable keys (16 in total) and enjoy the volume adjustment knob. The build quality is great and it even includes a button to disable the windows key. Even though the Cherry MX Black mechanical switches aren't known for typing I'm having no issue typing this review at a good pace.

Cons: My three biggest complaints, and only complaints have to be regarding that most of the keyboard isn't back-lit, the volume knob doesn't work in every situation, and the somewhat difficult to use software.

Other Thoughts: A definite buy in my book. If you're in the market for a nice keyboard this is one you should definitely consider!

4 out of 5 eggspretty happy :D

Pros: Great weight
Mechanical keys for a cheap price
Modular design
Macros

Cons: usb ports are a bit finnicky...
Thing is HUGE!! But I can detach my numpad so that helps

Other Thoughts: first I bought the aziocorp levitron clicker mechanical keyboard. Within a couple weeks paint was fading from shift ctrl alt z x c v f r e q keys... couple weeks after that c t i o l n keys all stopped responding to first keypresses unless I smacked em good...

opened an RMA ticket on azios website, and was PROMPTLY sent a replacement mech 5 (which I am now reviewing) had to give 4 stars due to the usb ports not liking being bumped... they could be a lot more solid, although Im sure some glue would fix that...

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible, DO NOT BUY

Pros: Okay, the keyboard is pretty cool and it does have some nice functionality with the buttons

Cons: Where the hell do I start? This $80 paperweight didn't last for but a month before the thing just completely stopped working. Not only that buy every time I hit one key it sounds like a nuclear bomb went off and it almost woke my wife up when i used it late at night. If I could give 0 eggs I would. Trying to return this thing but Azio has terrible customer support.

Other Thoughts: Probably never buying anything from Azio again unless their other products are not like this one.

2 out of 5 eggsMeh. Cheap MX Blacks, but plenty of quirks

Pros: Cherry MX Blacks are nice, no troublesome keys, Space and Shift keys have no stiffness or other issues. Removable numpad helps slightly for reducing the overall footprint. Macro Keys and Winkey disable are nice, but I never use them.

Cons: Even without the Numpad attached, the footprint is much larger than necessary. The Numpad is more hassle than help, as it'll randomly disconnect, and you'll have to reconnect it to get it to work. The volume knob no longer works in Windows, despite having the software installed. Mostly I'm just too lazy to gut and reinstall the software. Oddly enough, it works fine in Linux, so there's something fishy going on.

Other Thoughts: The macro keys, etc. are effectively useless once outside of Windows; there seems to be no support whatsoever for OSX or Linux. In short, better keyboards can be had for similar money. The gimmicks like macro keys, removable numpad, and D-pad "rail" aren't worth a hoot.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty Good

Pros: Durable, you can have as many macro profiles as you want, volume knob is useful, ability to disable the windows key while in game, you can use the software that comes with it to re-purpose useless keys such as scroll lock to do something useful

Cons: Keys are loud, but you get used to it fairly quick.

Other Thoughts: The only thing that would make this cooler is if the keys were back-lit.

4 out of 5 eggsAZIO Levetron Mech5 KB577U

Pros: The keyboard was delivered in a timely manor and in good condition. The keyboard looks very nice with my set up. In addition to looking good the ability to program all the keys is wonderful, and setting up the macros is very easy to set up. Gaming with this keyboard is great, the keys resond to the slilghtest touch.
This is by far the best keyboard i have ever owned.

Cons: The only con i can think of is that the keys to not light up, the keyboard is very dark and the print on the keys is not very bold. using this keyboard in low light is very difficult.

1 out of 5 eggsWretched piece of offal

Pros: Mechanical keys
Some are backlit
Idea of detachable number pad

Cons: Detachible "numeric"(sic) pad loses connection to keyboard
Detachable "numeric"(sic) pad cannot be used for extended ASCII
Keys don't function well
Keyboard not responsive to keystrokes

Other Thoughts: This looks like a nice keyboard but its a piece of junk. The design is innovative but the engineering is wretched. Some find this to be a solid keyboard while a significant minority(me included) have huge problems with it. This indicates Azzo's quality control is bad. Strongly recommend avoiding any product from this company.

4 out of 5 eggsEnoyable modular keyboard

Pros: Nice tactile feel, looks cool. Macros were easy to set up once you can get the right software installed. I like the modular keypad and easily able to add more macros. It seems very bulky and looks to be well made.

Cons: Software was hard to locate, and I did not recieve a CD with the box.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat keyboard!

Pros: Great key response, heavy duty, long cable, gold plated connectors, removeable numpad

Cons: Only bad one I can think of is the whole thing is not backlit, they have the macro keys on the left backlit, but not the entire keyboard, which is an odd design choice if you ask me, but it really does not bother me though.

Other Thoughts: Fantastic keyboard! The removable numpad is great for making the keyboard smaller to take it on the run or if you have limited desk space.
