MSI Vigor GK60 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

The box is stark with its white backdrop providing clear product images and really standing out in a sea of black boxes on the shelves of your local hardware emporium. We really like the font too which manages to be modern without aping Blade Runner or being illegible. Okay we have a slight fetish for a good font, but really it's an excellent design.
If you don't like the heavily sculpted keys on the WASD section, MSI do supply regular keycaps for these. This is the opposite of most keyboards that we test where the sculpted gaming keys are separate and need to be installed if you want to run with them. It shows the gaming focus of the Vigor GK60 design.
The Vigor GK60 comes with a brushed aluminium top which really looks the part, accentuating the black keycaps nicely whilst also providing a good backdrop for the red lighting to shine. We're big fans of the lock key indicators too which make a nice change from the usual single LED blaring away in the corner of your vision.
Normally the underside of keyboards are very bland with little to mention, but the Vigor GK60 has a couple of neat tricks up its sleeve. Firstly the centre has a cutaway so that you can route your headset cable beneath the board rather than have it tucked away at the side, getting in the way at vital moments. Secondly there is an extra large rubber foot in the centre to greatly increase the friction between it and your desk ensuring that even the most heavy-handed stabbing of keys shouldn't cause it to move.
