AZIO IZO Collection Review – Keyboard, Mouse and Numpad

Today we’re looking at Azio’s IZO Collection, a unique and attractive peripheral set consisting of a wireless keyboard, mouse and numeric pad. The set offers a bunch of great features and definitely looks good on paper, but is it worth the £190 price tag for the full set?

KitGuru says: Although a unique and visually impressive collection, the IZO collection misses the mark slightly and is expensive too. The keyboard is the best of the set offering good quality key caps, Gateron Blue Mechanical switches and great LED modes. The numpad and mouse however are disappointing, especially considering the amount of alternatives at the price point.
