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.

3 out of 5 eggsLove the feel. Vendor is wonky. Broke Quickly

Pros: The feel of this keyboard is amazing. The key travel and the report are awesome. They keyboard is responsive and the drivers included seem to work well on Win 7 - 8 both 32 and 64 bit. Macro keys are nice and function well.

Cons: Out of the box the volume knob didn't work at all. And within 2 weeks the enter key quit working :(. The vendor website is completely broken and looks like they went out of business

Other Thoughts: Feels amazing to type on. Broke quickly. Vendor seems super sketchy.
