The Azio Levetron L70’s dimensions are 17.7 x 6.1 x 1.4 inches and it weighs 2.5 pounds. On the first glance at the keyboard, you’ll notice the huge removable wrist rest and the volume button. The turnable volume button is a great feature. It makes changing the volume a lot faster and accurate. It also adds a lot to the design, making it look more high-tech and beautiful.
The removable wrist rest is also a very comfortable and versatile feature. Some people need the wrist rest to feel comfortable during gaming because the elevation gives you better access to the buttons. It makes the keyboard fit almost every gamer. Each button has a life cycle of 10 million clicks. This makes the keyboard last you for years, which is very important because you want to get as much for your money as possible. The Azio Levetron L70 also has a blue backlight. Most gamers prefer keyboards with a backlight because it makes it easier to game in the dark. If you’re like me and you like to play in your man-cave with the blinds shut and the lights off then you’ll have trouble playing without a backlight on your keyboard.
The L70 is a membrane keyboard. It doesn’t give you the ultra-high response time like mechanical keyboards, but it’s on par with most other high-end membrane keyboards. That makes it a very good keyboard for the medium and beginner gamer. It has up to 6 key roll-overs. That may not sound like a lot but pressing over 6 keys at a time during a game won’t really happen unless you’re in full rage mode. The product also has adjustable rubberized feet, which let you regulate the angle of the keyboard. This is great for finding the perfect position in your hands. You don’t want your hands to feel numb after a long gaming session. The rubberized feet also give it great stability and it won’t slide on the table while using it.
The Azio Levetron L70 doesn’t have a braided cable but the rubber cable has a strengthened connection to the keyboard. That makes it a lot more durable. Even if there is a flaw in the keyboard, the company offers a 1-year warranty. That is long enough to discover any factory made flaws, that rarely happen, and you’re guaranteed with a perfect keyboard. It’s also possible to lock the windows key. This is important because some games don’t automatically do it. This leads the accidental pressing of the button to a few seconds long FPS drop that could ruin your game.
The Azio Levetron L70 offers more for under 30$ than most other keyboards. The high customizability makes it easy to fit the keyboard according to your hands and it will feel very comfortable. The blue background lighting looks very good on the keyboard and it will make most gaming setups look beautiful. The keyboard also has pretty big buttons so it’s very easy to type and get used to the keyboard.
