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.

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.

4 out of 5 eggsI LOVE THIS KEYBOARD

Pros: It's has very solid construction/highly customizable detachable numpad to make the keyboard shorter/ I ABSOLUTLEY love typing on this thing it just...feels right. and No ghosting issues to be had!

Cons: the reason i knocked an egg off is for 2 very nit picky things that would have put this board over the top

1. No Backlit keyboard :*(

2. the buttons can be quite sensitive and just by resting my fingers on a-d while playing fps can sometimes cause adverse movement

Other Thoughts: This is not my first foray with Azio products i have a mouse another keyboard and now this one through them i was a bit worried at first because of the prices on the products...but all have been solid build quality and also worked great would recommend this company on my past 3 purchases
