MSI Vigor GK60 Gaming Keyboard Review – Cherry MX for £95

Rating: 8.5.

In this review we take a look at the MSI Vigor GK60 gaming keyboard from MSI. The GK60 sits somewhere in the middle when it comes to features and pricing in MSI’s keyboard lineup. If you are a fan of RGB you might be a little disappointed with the red backlighting, but you do get the option to switch between 7 different effects and the keyboard works with the MSI Mystic Light software to synchronise with other components. Other features include Cherry MX Red mechanical switches, full N-key rollover and an aluminium faceplate with the option of 4 metal keycaps – all for £94.99.  But is it any good?
