Review – MSI Vigor GK41


After last year’s review of the Vigor GK71 Sonic, we’re back with an MSI keyboard test. This time, we’re dealing with the little Vigor GK41. This is a fairly affordable reference (around 50/60 euros), yet it still benefits from mechanical switches and RGB LEDs. At first glance, it seems to have a solid construction and good functionality.

In short, what’s MSI’s solution worth? Answer in our test!

Technical specifications :

With this model of mechanical keyboard, we find a 100% format reference that measures 442 x 138 x 43 mm for a weight of 1.1 kg. This is heavier than the previous Razer keyboard we tested (880 g). The Vigor GK41 features ABS keycaps and linear mechanical switches that should withstand up to 50 million keystrokes.

Here, too, we’re treated to beautiful RGB LEDs to illuminate the keyboard. These can be modified via keyboard shortcuts or with the MSI Center software. Despite its low price, MSI’s new keyboard comes with a 1.8 m USB cable.

Like most keyboards, it features N-Key Rollover technology with Anti-Ghosting and a 1 GHz polling rate .

Recommended system:

To use the Vigor GK41 in the best possible conditions, you’ll need to leave a USB 2.0 port available on your PC. Likewise, you’ll need Windows 10 or higher. Of course, you’ll need an Internet connection to download and install the MSI management software.
