    We review not one, but two MSI products, meet the MSI Vigor GK80 Keyboard and Clutch GM70 Mouse. The products we have today are certainly aimed at the traditional 'gamer,' for sure. It's often said...

    I quite like the look of the keyboard but for that money you might as well get the Ducky Shine 6 with PBT keycaps and be done with it.

    I'm still waiting with baited breath for what your WPM is, rather than INSERT WPM HERE :D

    Great review Hilbert!

    It has so much RGB packed into it, that table is glowing. For me all this RGB nonsense is just a distraction and unnecessary price inflation.

    Besides MX Red's are really soft resulting in frequent misclicks. At least in case of my bear paws, MX Black is the preffered choice in my case.

    180 euros = $212, that's quite the mark up compared with the US cost of $160 ! MSI can go swivel.

    I don't about you, but to me the Logitech Gaming Software is utterly rubbish and useless. That's why I have been on the lookout for a new keyboard for quite a while. And the GK80 has caught my eyes, the UI of the software look find to, but I have some reservation about its ease of use and responsiveness. So I've been reading reviews to find out whether it is up to the task. And since you said it's not as good as the Logitech Gaming Software, my doubt remains.

    I´m using Corsair K95, with speed switches. But as @cryohellinc mentioned, even the red switches are too soft, so do i feel on these speed switches.
    But, with time, i´m used to these. Pretty similar that MSI board if compared to K95.

    I would not buy that MSI keyboard, just cause it doesn´t have the macro keys on left side. Hell, K95 only has 6, i would have wanted atleast 12.
    Do i need that much for macros or something? No, but for me, its easy to toss a skill button on to them, if playing MMO or something.
    I´m not good with ctrl+1 or alt+1.

    Any gaming keyboard that I touched was rubbish and useless. Overpaying for brand and crap quality.

    For some reason $8 elecom keyboard lasts for more than 7 years now despite all the abuse, while any gaming keyboard had issues with keys non-registering, keys falling apart, etc...

    Better stop doubting gaming keyboards and invest into proper mechanical keyboard if the key touch matters to you so much.
