AZIO Retro Classic Posh Review – The most beautiful keyboard?

Azio is probably a company you’ve never heard but they seem to have created something truly beautiful. The Retro Classic keyboard. The round key cap design is reminiscent of vintage typewriters and the retro design featuring leather and copper certainly stands out. This keyboard features Azio Typelit mechanical switches that are tactile, clicky and illuminated with orange LEDs. With a retail price of £189.99 is this the most luxurious mechanical keyboard available? Or is it a case of form over function?

KitGuru Says: Overall we think the Azio Retro Classic keyboard is very attractive and good to type on but unfortunately has a pretty hefty price tag for the limited featureset.
