MSi it is certainly one of the leaders in its sector and, not surprisingly, many of the products it launches on the market end up at the top of many of the hardware charts. In this case we have analyzed one of the “hybrid” keyboards, the Vigor gk60 which allows you to play at maximum performance or to be the most trustworthy of your companions in terms of work, such as who writes to you right now who has just disconnected from an online game and finds himself typing on the same keyboard.
In terms of packaging, the Vigor gk60 keyboard looks like all MSi products: quality is the right word, with an attention to detail and to the resistance of the packaging that tightens and wraps the entire body of the keyboard, preventing any damage, of course the box can be sketched but the contents will remain repaired and without scratches.
The design choices for this are decisive Vigor gk60: starting "from the bottom" we notice that the keyboard has four unusual rubber feet and a sort of basin that keeps it slightly raised from the desk or table where it is placed; one of the aforementioned feet is positioned perpendicularly under the space bar, which allows strong pressure of the key without the danger of slipping and you can do it in complete safety, even from a resistance point of view, because it rests on a resistant element. The hollow under the keys allows you to slide headphone cables under the keyboard, for example, arranging your station in detail and avoiding unnecessary flicker of cables while playing. The keyboard also features four unique metal keys, perfect for highlighting the directional cross WASD typical of those who play, after all we are talking about a gaming product! Below we find a mechanism Cherry MX Red as we know it is perfect for gaming because it allows excellent response feedback and a rapid pressure of the keys, the latter can be illuminated both with the MSi software and with the quick keys, placed above the directional cross on the right, activated thanks to the "dragon" button (FNZ) located to the right of the space bar. Everything is finished with a metal base that makes the keyboard solid on the base that will hardly move from the position you prefer.

Our direct experience with Vigor gk60 we could describe it with the phrase "I didn't know I needed it but now that I know I would hardly go back!" and that's right: the keyboard never disappoints, both in the gaming field where it really gives its best with programmable keys, with ergonomics and stability but also and above all while working, when for example you have to write hundreds of characters per minute and the thought that the keyboard has a guaranteed lifespan of over fifty million keystrokes well, let us tell you, is really comforting. It is a nice product, which never hurts because it combines excellent performance with a truly refined design, simple but not trivial, useful but not uncomfortable: in short, it is truly an excellent keyboard.
