AZIO) MK Retro Typewriter Inspired Keyboard
Even when looking at the MK Retro from the side, it's sleek and sexy. The feet are surrounded by a chrome ring at the bottom, there is the thick band of chrome along the side of the frame, and each of the keys above it is also ringed with chrome. Playing against black for contrast makes the MK Retro pop when it is sitting on the desk.
The layout of the 74 keys seen here is typical of any keyboard offered in the US. The row of F-keys doing double duty, the numbers and letters, and even the command keys are all rounded, however, and they allow that shiny black plastic below the chrome rings to shine through.
Starting off with the multiple functions of the F-keys, we first start with the F1 through F4 keys. Here you can open the browser home page, open This PC, open the default mail handler, and also open Windows Media Player.
If you are going to allow us to open a media player, multimedia keys are essential too. On the F5 through F8 keys, this begins, where we find the previous track button, the next track button, one to play or pause the track, and the last one to stop it.
The last set of F-keys counties with multimedia and ends with a button to bring up the calculator. F9 will decrease the volume, F10 will raise it, F11 mutes all sounds, and as for the F12, we already mentioned its functionality.
The right third of the MK Retro, while looking different than the square caps we are used to, delivers all of the keys one expects to see here in a 104-key layout. Command keys, arrow keys, a full number pad, and even optional arrow keys are all to be had as they surround the AZIO name painted in white.
