PRESS LOVES US
I enjoy typing on this keyboard. It is unfortunate though, that the keycaps are single-shot abs keycaps, much like you would find on a corsair keyboard. Sure, changing the keycaps material do something of a higher quality like PBT or doubleshot abs would increase the price on an already expensive keyboard, but it would be worth it. I can only give this keyboard 3 stars because it also uses a non standard mounting for the keycaps, meaning that it won't be compatible with existing keycap sets like cherry MX-mount ones.
I love this keyboard. It was shipped and arrived promptly in very nice packaging. It's even more beautiful and elegant then the pictures made it out to be. The keys aren't as "sharp" as some keyboards (though they're just as responsive) so they took a bit to get used to, but once you do the feel of them and the sound they make is so satisfying! It makes it a dream to use. I'm incredibly happy I decided to give this keyboard a shot.
I would love to buy one if there is an AZERTY version of this keyboard
“I have a complaint about my Retro Classic Artisan keyboard. It’s so beautiful - such a work of art - that I have trouble getting my work done because I just stare at the keyboard. It’s just this classic piece of completely retro industrial art I can’t take my eyes off of. This is all your fault.”
"Hi Folks. Got my Elwood yesterday. It's gorgeous! Your product belongs in MoMA (The Museum of Modern Art) or the Steampunk Hall of Fame. Thanks! More please..."
“Just got mine today and holy poop is this thing rad… the detail not only in the keyboard itself but the packaging, contents and the warranty card ;) had to buy another one for my other iMac so we can match now!!! thanks so much!!”
“The back light is such an added bonus! Great conversation starter at the office. Elegant, cool and functional. Love this keyboard!”
“Hey folks – absolutely loving my Artisan, which is getting many amazed comments at work. Very excited to hear that a matching mouse is planned – hoping it’ll be ambidextrous for left-handed folk like me…”
“Hello, I just received my Onyx keyboard and I’m loving it (this is my first Azio product). I want to congratulate you for doing this exquisite piece. On the other hand, I would like to ask for any update on the status on the unique backers plaque I once read about. Is there any extra info on that? Once again, congratulations for making this elegant keyboard (now I’m typing just because I like how it feels to type on this keyboard). Thank you very much. Keep up the good work!”
