Will the BT version be available on this drop? Not available now.
can we get space grey (or dark grey) pls?
Why aren't these two Azio Mechanical Keyboard drops in the same set of communities? • This Mac OS drop ended less than a week ago. • The Win OS drop is currently open. @Duncan ?

Hi, Do any of you know how to change my selection from Bluetooth to USB wired after signing up?
mariog
I imagine you'd have to cancel and reorder, but I'm guessing you already tried that?
Does this Mac white version also work for PC?
So got this keyboard 4/10/17 and as of 8/8/18, it no longer works. It wont turn on, won't charge, tried on multiple chargers. Nothing... Unfortunately it is passed the 1year mfg warranty.
Anyone else have this issue? Resolutions?
Thanks

Check with your credit card company to see if they extended the warranty.
Wow...I wonder if Corsair has seen this keyboard. Other than color, looks just like the K-90 I'm typing on right now
Does anyone has problems with FN key? I have the AZIO for Mac bluetooth and my F1, F2 (all F* keys) only performs the MacOS actions (bright control, show mission control, etc). For instance, if I'm on Excel and I want use F4 function (to lock a reference), pressing FN + F4 will display my applications screen (of MacOS). Does anyone knows how to solve? I'm sick and tired of this, almost giving up this keyboard.
OS support: OS X/ mac OS
It says so. Anyone has bought this before?Are there any problems of compatibility with Mac OS?
Maxtuner
It's a keyboard specifically made for Mac, so there's probably no problems.
Got mine a while ago and I must say it's not bad at all. The quality is kinda meh, but it's fine for a $70 bluetooth mechanical keyboard.
No problems at all with the bluetooth version.
Just got mine (Bluetooth version). Not bad—not having any issues with it. Wish it had more heft. Key action nice, as is the fact it's not super-clicky.
I got another keyboard on Amazon around the same time that claimed Mac support, and it had way more problems than this out of the box. This was pretty simply plug-and-play, and everything worked as expected. But the heft/key action of the other one is a little better, so I'm torn.

Nope, that's with the wired version only.

Ok thks man
I like this color scheme a lot, wish there were more white keyboards available. Not all of us aren't into the accented black thing that's been done to death.
MD is filling more and more with garbage drops. I know you have to keep the drops going but how about put quality over quantity?
don't buy keyboard back light setting keys(F5, F6, F13) always work light setting ignore fn + setting on system preferences
This looks *very* similar to the Corsair K70...
How are Kailh swiches? My other boards have Gateron & Cherry MX Greens, will I be happy with these?
Miserendino
imo they are the company that makes the switches for Razer. they are a good equivalent to cherry from what iv heard
LiadG
Just for reference, Razer no longer uses Kailh switches. They now make their own in-house ones. But Kailh did make them for a good while. Will agree they are pretty good.
What type of keycaps are they? PBT? Standard Cherry MX compatible and removable?
A keycap is not the same thing as a switch. A keycap goes on top of a switch.
Maedi
Kailh Switches, so they are MX compatible. Unsure what kind of plastic though.
Will this actually work with windows though? I run a macbook pro, but use windows VM / bootcamp for work.
A "True Mac Layout" should have fn - ctrl - option - command to the left of the space key.
melonamin
A Macbook Pro has fn-ctrl-option-command, but an Apple keyboard with numeric keypad doesn't. They have ctrl-option-command. So, I guess there isn't just one "true Mac layout".
As both a huge Mac fan and a mechanical keyboard user (using both as I type this actually), I can't get behind this board at all. While a Mac specific keyboard is highly appreciated in a market where Windows boards dominate, the look of this just doesn't do it for me. While truthfully I have moved away from a full-sized keyboard, this huge board and even its smaller details make it feel like an attempt to cater to Mac users without actually knowing anything about the Apple aesthetic. I know nothing about the vendor other than the complaints about the previous BT model, so not trying to trash anyone here, but personally I just can't see me ever considering this. Aesthetically, I would much rather stick to any of the other mechanical options out on the market and swap on some Mac key caps. This keyboard, to me, seems more of a "lets put Mac keys in the right spot and make it white and stainless because that's what Apple guys want" rather than a well designed board that takes its design cues from the core fundamentals of Apple's design. I do hope this sells well as maybe it'll show other vendors (or even this one), that there is a market out there for more Mac options.
Even after a few sub par reviews (mostly geared towards the bluetooth version), I decided I was interested. Shipping however killed the deal from me. Even at the lowest drop point, you're only saving a few bucks compared to Amazon. Plus, last drop it seems the vendor took its sweet time shipping. Still considering buying but maybe not through Massdrop.
whyudodat
Changed my mind and committed at the lowest price. With sales tax on Amazon, ended up at $92.66, ~$12 difference is enough for me to be patient and hope the vendor ships faster. Not that I need this anyway, but oh well ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I'd like to buy 1 but can anyone confirm the issues with the bluetooth version?
moenad
Hello Moenad Currently no issue is known with the Blue tooth model. When the first batch of MK Mac keyboards came out we had a 10 min of inactivity shut off time. We and users quickly realized that this was not enough time and set the keyboard to 30 minutes of inactivity. Meaning if you are not using the keyboard for 30 minutes the keyboard will shut itself off to save battery. Once you touch any key the keyboard will turn itself back on and reconnect automatically.
I guess you can call it a "Mac"anical Keyboard!
It's been a long time since I had a wired keyboard, but the reviews about how frequently the bluetooth version loses connection are kind of brutal. I don't think I could put up with that. Wires = messy for me, but I guess I would get the backlighting if I went wired here. Tough call for me.
Lzybdha
Wired is way more reliable
"True Mac layout" the BT version is close, the USB version... definitely not.
Hello,
does this keyboard still have issues with multiple key short cuts as mentioned earlier in the comments?
thanks
BirdBearFish
Hello BirdBearFish You should have no problems with key short cuts.
AzioCorp
Thank you for the response
Can't help but think that it would of been a better solution to merge both variants of the board (black version and white one) to one model and then bundle the Mac modifiers so both sides get both flavors of color.
That way Mac users can get a Black one and Non Mac Users can get a white one, I wouldn't mind the price rising a bit to compensate for the additional included keycaps.
Azer
Just offering a DIP switch for Mac mode and offering some extra keycaps would make me happy.
Azer
I agree. I'm not going to purchase this solely because it's white. I would have jumped at the black variant.
@AzioCorp Dear Azio, Do you believe in me?
Sharky66
Hello Yes, we do believe in you. We believe in all our users.
AzioCorp
The keyboard is stunning. I hope you might offer it in ISO layouts with localised legends in the future.
I have the windows RGB version of this keyboard ( which I'm typing on at the very moment ) and it is awesome, I have used the K-70 rgb before and I much prefer this one over it. The audio wheel has a tactile click every time you roll it back or forth, it has a soft touch rubber on it, and the lights are bright. The rushed aluminum back plate makes the whole thing very sound. But the thing that holds this keyboard back is the lack of software. And I understand that they can't just make software that works with the ones out, they would have to do some tweaking to the ones being manufactured. OH and the switches. The switches are better than cherry mx blue in my opinion. The click is perfect, the feel of typing on this thing is amazing. If I had to rate this amazing product between 1 and 10 I would give it a solid 9.

Thank you for considering my feedback. I spent an agonizing (1st world problems) 6-month search before giving up. The Ducky Shine 6 Snow White Edition came up just short for my needs, so I went with a black keyboard instead since it's neutral.
Medion
Have to agree, I'd buy one if it was white and for a PC. I've looked for one as well but the pickings are very poor.
couldn't you say... Machanical keyboard? xD
