After careful consideration and much regret I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and reviews that were left behind during the site migration.

It may sounds like the name of a new electric razor or blender for your favorite adult drink but the Azio Levetron Mech5 is neither, it's a mechincal keyboard. (read: the title)  Now before you close the browser and move on you should know that the Mech5 isn't an ordinary gaming keyboard but more of a command center with a straight deck of keys located in the center.

And it is good

Today we will be taking a looking at one of Azio’s newest gaming keyboards on the market, the Azio Levetron Mech5 mechanical keyboard. The Mech5 is Azio’s most innovative mainstream mechanical gaming keyboard available today. As of the last few years, mechanical keyboards have gotten really popular and we are seeing many competitors releasing their own designs in an attempt to capitalize on this new craze.  Azio designed the Levetron Mech5 to be completely modular, so fit and finish will be an important aspect to keep in mind; however, let’s not forget that functionality is just as important when it comes to mechanical gaming keyboards. So today we are going to put the Azio Levetron Mech5 to the test and see how it stacks up.

Even if this keyboard is junk and repeats the letter "A" with every keypress I'm still impressed because its different.  Would I buy one?  prolly not but if you had one of these at your next LAN I'd be suprised if nobody wanted to check it out.
