Azio MGK 1 RGB Mechanical Keyboard Review: Less Is More

Table of Contents -

 

DSC_8614Mechanical keyboards have been around since we started using keyboards as input devices for the PC. Early (1970’s era) mechanical keyboards were heavy and loud which eventually led manufactures to produce membrane based keyboards. PC gaming helped lead a resurgence in the reintroduction of the mechanical keyboard. Azio’s MGK 1 RGB mechanical keyboard contains the Kailh mechanical switch and does have RGB LED backlighting.

Packaging

The MGK 1 packaging features a large graphic of the keyboard on the front of the box. On the rear, Azio goes into detail on the features and specifications of the MGK 1 RGB keyboard.

 

Inside, you’ll find the Azio MGK 1 tucked away in a set of foam end caps to protect the keyboard from damage. To protect the finish of the keyboard, Azio wrapped the MGK 1 in a protective plastic bag.
