Mechanical keyboards offer an orgy of satisfying keystrokes for your fingers (how's that for a visual?), which is one of the reasons we're excited to learn about AZiO's soon-to-be-released Levetron Mech4 mechanical plank for gamers. In addition to those sweet, sweet Cherry MX (Black) mechanical keys, the Levetron sets itself apart with a modular design and by being resistant to spills.
We're told this gnarly looking plank has a switch life cycle of 50 million keystrokes. How much space it takes up on your desktop is partially up to you -- the numpad is modular, and so are a set of six dedicated macro triggers that clip onto the top of the keyboard (which are in addition to 5 macro keys on the left side with an A/B switch).
"The most accented and probably greatest notable feature of the Levetron Mech4 Gaming Keyboard is the modular configuration, specifically the detachable numeric keypad," said Wilson Tang, Marketing Vice President at Azio Corporation. "By allowing the numeric keypad to be attached to either side of the keyboard, gamers can use these keys as additional macro keys, customize them for extra functions, or simply use them as a standard numeric keypad to improve your game and win!"
Other highlights include anti-ghosting keys, three levels of adjustable height with a non-slip base, a 6-foot braided cable with gold connector, a pair of low-power USB ports, volume knob, the ability to disable the Windows Menu key, and unlimited profiles.
The Levetron Mech4 keyboard will be available starting October 30, 2011 for $110. In the meantime, check out our photo gallery below.
