Pros

  • Brushed metal plate looks great and adds rigidity
  • Nice and bright, per key, RGB
  • Keys are not grease prone
  • Extra, included, CTRL and ALT convex keys
  • Good tactile and audible feedback
  • Full range of media keys
  • Software is great
  • Good performance in gaming

Cons

  • Kink friendly cord
  • Slightly heavier resistance when pressing the buttons but we soon got used to it
  • Nothing really stands out spec, visually or comfort, wise other than the great RGB and the free key caps

KitGuru says: We like MSI’s Vigor GK50 Elite, there is nothing to complain about but equally nothing to rave about either. It’s an all-round solid keyboard that performs excellently but isn’t boasting new technology that will turn heads. If you’re after a upper-mid-range keyboard this may be worth considering!
