Remember this or this? If you do and wanted more, you are in luck. If you had not read those, welcome to your first typewriter-inspired mechanical keyboard review. If you had read those and were done with the trend of similarly styled keyboards, well, you are in for a surprise as well. You see, when AZIO first contacted me about their Retro Classic keyboard, I realized that this is actually a product incorporating features many wish the "base" MK Retro would have - backlighting, for one. Others wanted a more luxurious product with a metal frame instead of plastic, and I actually did see one person say he wanted to see a leather finish as well. I do not know if that last one was a planted comment, but it is very fitting then that we have here a keyboard that has all those features, including the leather!
