MSI Vigor GK50 Low Profile TKL Mechanical Keyboard Review

MSI is one of the biggest and best names in the business, creating everything from stunning PC cases to the latest and greatest graphics cards. We’re kicking things off with something smaller today though, as they’ve just released their new VIGOR GK50 Low Profile TKL keyboard. This keyboard has actually been on the market for a couple of years, but the TKL version is what’s new. For those who want a more compact design, this is perfect for the job. If you game at home or travel to play eSports, you can now reap the benefits of the more compact design. Because it’s smaller, it frees up desktop space, allowing you more room to wiggle your mouse. Of course, being smaller, it’s also easier to store and travel with.

MSI Vigor GK50 Low Profile TKL

The MSI Vigor GK50 Low Profile TKL Mechanical Keyboard is well equipped and should be perfect for anyone who takes their keyboards seriously. It comes with the latest Kailh low-profile white mechanical switches. These feature dynamic per-key RGB backlighting, allowing you total customisation over the colours. The top of the keyboard is built from a slice of aluminium, which looks great but also improves the overall rigidity of the keyboard too. Beyond that, you get USB-C connectivity, full N-Key rollover and anti-ghosting, on-board profiles, and three angle adjustments. So, let’s grab the box and take a closer look!


  • Kailh low-profile white switches
  • Per-key RGB lighting with mystic light
  • Floating & octagonal keycaps.
  • 1000Hz polling rate
  • 3 onboard profiles
  • USB-C connector
  • 1.8m USB cable included
  • Three adjustable angles (5, 8 and 11 degrees)

“Gamers will revel in the amazing clicky feedback provided with each keystroke with 50gf operating force in its space-saving compact form-factor.
