To get the nastiness out of the way:

Yes, the keyboard layout is different from most. This uses the layout where the backspace key is smaller and the enter key is a gargantuan beast. I advise looking up pictures of the keys to see what I mean and deciding if you can handle the change.

That being said, I love this keyboard. It feels very solid (not afraid to break it). I'd read a lot of reviews that have said that the Cherry MX Black switches are not considered very good for typing, and are mainly geared towards pure gaming. Personally, I find that the CMXB switches are fantastic for everything. I tend to (apparently) type a little heavy-handedly. This is not a problem with this keyboard (at least not yet).

The key "feel" is fantastic. It feels like someone dug up an old IBM beast-board from the monolith era and rebuilt it from scratch with the latest tech. The result is a very smooth, uniform key motion, and the only noise is the clack of the key backing hitting the end of the keystroke. It sounds awesome for those who like the sounds of yester-year. More importantly, it is responsive, durable, and well-designed.

I haven't had any of the software issues some of the other reviewers have noted. I plugged it in, it installed a basic driver. I went to the AZIO website and downloaded the latest version software. I installed said software. Everything just works. I am running Win7 x64.

If I had to make a feature request, it would be adjustable full-keyboard backlighting. As things are, the volume knob has a light, the numlock key is a short step away from being a lightsaber (super bright!), and the macro keys can light up.

All in all, I highly recommend this keyboard to anyone.

First thing I want to say is that I am returning this keyboard, but not because it's a bad keyboard but because I received a defective unit. That will not affect my rating because while it did work the keyboard was almost excellent. I just want to put full disclosure out there, reason for my return was the software eventually just froze my computer up and I would have to hard reset. But again, I am only reviewing the product as if nothing happened because I've been reading through forums and have talked to customer support and it's very likely that my computer is at fault and not necessarily the keyboard or it's software.

On to the review: typing with this keyboard is amazing, I love the clickity-clack feel that you get. Another reviewer likened it to an old IBM 'board from back in the day and I would have to agree. The detachable num-pad is great as well, allowing for a multitude of uses through various games/programs. The keyboard itself is very sturdy and in no way did I think that it might break or fall apart.

The one thing that I just don't like is the fact that this keyboard has a somewhat awkward layout. It uses the style of an incredibly big enter key whilst using a ridiculously small backspace key. To be fair, I already knew that this was the case as I read reviews about this 'board before buying, but to be honest it's not that easy to get used to. For the full two weeks that I used the keyboard I would almost always hit the key right next to the backspace key.

Some might say that the small backspace key won't bother them and if that is the case I see no reason why you should not buy this keyboard, however if you think you would be frustrated by the small backspace key then I suggest you look for a different keyboard.

OMG what a fun keyboard! It has the quality Cherry MX Black switches that gamers love. Reminds me of the old IBM keyboards that you just couldn't kill. Add to that the modular design and you have a win-win keyboard. The number keyboard is detachable so you can set it out of the way if you don't use it BUT if you do, you can mount it on either the right or left side of the keyboard just by snapping it into place. It also come with a 6 button macro keyboard. You can use it or not but if you do, it mounts on a slider rail along the top of the keyboard so you can put it wherever you want - or being modular, just set it off to the side of the keyboard. All three keyboards come with very stable flip out stands with 3 positions. Gamers or power computer users, you NEED this keyboard!

Pros:

Great mechanical keys
Movable/removable number pad (with calculator key)
Good volume control
Easy to clean if you spill stuff in it

Cons:

Not backlit
Sliding 6-hotkey attachment is gimmicky and of limited use

This is an excellent keyboard; my only problem with it is the lack of backlighting. It's solidly built, has a pretty neat style, and has a bunch of cool features. The mechanical keys feel great, and I've had no problem with multiple key presses (shift, space, w, a, and r, for those forward left jumps while crouching and reloading that come up often, for example). The movable/removable number pad is great for when you want it out of the way, or on the other side of the keyboard for additional hotkeys or an alternative to the staple WASD setup. It has a small button below the keypad that opens up Calculator, which I thought was silly at first, but I've used it quite a bit, and it's a great idea. The volume control is smooth and works great. (On my previous keyboard, it would occasionally get "stuck" turning the volume up or down, or suffer from lag approaching 4-5 seconds, or just stop working.)

The six-hotkey sliding thingy, I'm not quite sold on. I haven't really used it much, but it does flip up and out of the way, and it's removable, so it's not a big deal. It does cover up the F1-F4 keys where I have it now, but oh well.

The keyboard is completely programmable, with five macro keys to the left of the standard keys. I like to rearrange all the keys and leave my computer, so people who try to use it are unable to type anything. (It's pretty funny.) The backspace key is tiny and the enter key is huge, but I got used to it after a couple of days, and now I don't even notice it.

I wish it was backlit. I thought I wouldn't mind, but I do kind of miss that. Not a huge deal, just keep it in mind.

Overall, I'm pleased with the purchase.
