Doesn't move on table
Clickity clacky keys
Palm rest is easy to attach and detach. Doesn't rattle when snapped on.
Awesome aluminum plate
Love that there are no gaps on the plate, all the keys are raised above
Not a big fan of the plastic key pull
A metal rattle from the wider keys because of the support wire to keep the key from tilting
So before, I got really unlucky and received a DOA (Dead on Arrival). I was pretty upset, so I went to customer service as soon as I could. Before the day ended, I received a response saying that they would replace it. So I provided my invoice for proof of purchase, and gave them my address. They sent me a prepaid label and I used that to ship them the keyboard. Eight days later, I'm typing with that keyboard right now. Now here is where it gets crazy. When I opened the box, I thought the contents inside the air wraps were a bit too tall. This was true as I unveiled a gaming mouse from Azio, the smile I had literally dissapeared, and I was in shock. I've never seen anything like this, and even when I dug to the bottom of the box, there was a small little roll of Smarties! Thank you Azio, you have done good by your customers!
The keyboard is constructed with brushed aluminum that is nice and cool to the touch and there is only a slight flex when putting a fairly heavy pressure against the keyboard, it's nothing to be concerned about and I'm happy with its body. Its design is nice, sleek and elegant with the sides and bottom that are made out of red plastic that I'm personally not a fan of (only the brown switch version has the blackout color scheme). The aesthetic is classy enough to blend into any environment whether it is used in an office (with the backlight turned off) or within the comfort of your home.
Some are hesitant on buying this keyboard because of the Kailh switches that are embedded into it, many claimed that the Kailh switches break easily. I’ve had some rage moments when I get humiliated by players on CS:GO that are better than me and banged on this keyboard a couple of times but it still functions like when it first came out of the box, so I would say that they are on par with the Cherry MX switches when it comes to durability. I’ve tried out the G710 with the Cherry MX Blue switches at Walmart and I think that it’s quieter compared to its Chinese counterpart, that’s pretty much the only difference I could identify. It’s clicky, tactile, and loud (you can hear the sound of the springs, dampening o-rings should be compatible with this switch if you wish for a quieter typing experience) like any other keyboards with the same switch.
I’ve enjoyed the integrated volume control on the MGK1 so far, the volume wheel feels great with the rubberized material and the mute button has just the right amount of click to it. It seems unimportant but it’s convenient and well executed.
The white LED lights are bright enough at the maximum setting with four stages of brightness. There are also 3 lighting options: You either leave all the lights on or off and then there’s reactive mode which is fun to turn on once in awhile. You configure them via the FN+F11 (brightness) and FN+12 (mode). It’s limited but it’s a BUDGET mechanical keyboard, if you’re looking for more cool lighting effects you’ll need to spend a bit more for the RGB version of this keyboard or look elsewhere.
USB cord is braided and I'm glad AZIO went with this approach, it adds a premium look and feel and gives an extra layer of protection should your cord encounter wear and tear on a frequent basis. The cord is also long enough to comfortably connect to your PC within a reasonable distance, but it's not detachable.
I appreciate that Windows-lock can be enabled (FN+F9), especially when you’re in the middle of a game, it’s NOICE.
MOBA gamers will appreciate that it is erstghijouegijrtuzefgrstijkozefijrskoefjrszioeszfijkorefjrszikoerzfijoazefrswijoaerswzfijowzefijrsoszefijkor; N-KEY rollover (enabled by FN+DEL), that means that you can register as many keys as you want at once like what I just did, it’s also pretty NOICE. Mac users beware, you can only use 6-key rollover.
Now onto the keycaps, they were probably one of my least favorite parts of this keyboard (but I’m nitpicking about this one, tbh). When you pull out one of the keycaps and inspect the side above the letters and underneath you'll see that it has a piece of plastic sticking ever so slightly out, it's because the keycaps are like the pieces you see for one of those parts for a Gundam figures that you assemble by yourself and have to take them out of the frame, so that particular side isn’t smooth like other keycaps. It’s barely noticeable but again, kind of disappointed. The keycaps, when typing, feel smooth and you can barely notice the feel of the letters. Decent overall, just not as good as the ones on my friend’s Corsair K70.
When I ordered the keyboard I expected to use it with the optional wrist rest it comes with. Nope, the wrist wrest is awful in my opinion. It is made entirely out of plastic that doesn’t feel like it’s supposed to be made for a wrist rest. I’ve used the keyboard with it for a month and decided to detach it from the keyboard because I have sweaty palms and the disgusting gunks appear in just a few days of use. Compared to the one on the K70 which I’ve had the chance to use when I’m over at my friend’s house, this one is just not good and I recommend that you buy a soft foam one for around twenty bucks if you have the extra money to spend.
Another thing that I didn’t like about this keyboard is that its stands that make the keyboard tilt at a higher angle isn’t rubberized. It is worth knowing that this product is made as a budget mechanical keyboard in mind but AZIO shouldn’t have cut a corner here. The stands are pointless since the keyboard slides on my desk when they’re in use, so it’s better off to just leave them alone.
Would I recommend this keyboard to anyone who is interested in trying out a mechanical keyboard? Hell yes, being a budget mechanical keyboard, it comes included with a full sized numpad which I know that a lot of people consider a feature that is indispensable. It is also compact for a keyboard of full layout, the form factor is slim with the logo not appearing on top of the keyboard but above the arrow keys instead, so people with small desk space vertically will be pleased when it comes to that. The Kailh switches feel pleasing to type on. Its construction is solid with little to no flex with a premium feel that’s not often seen on a budget mechanical keyboard. The added volume control with the scrollwheel and the clicky mute button are also nice bonuses. White backlighting is nice to bring a subtle bling to your desk.
Pros: ONLY AROUND $70 FOR A MECHANICAL KEYBOARD (often on sale, so wait if you must)!!!!!!! full layout but also slim, well-built, backlighting is noice, volume control is noice, braided USB cable
Cons: meh keycaps, awful wrist rest imo, the tilt stands don’t come rubberized
