I genuinely enjoyed testing MSI's GK50 Elite. I'm giving this keyboard our Gold Award because I can't mash my fingertips on it, I can type fairly fast on it, and it's lower height means a wrist rest isn't a necessity. Combine all of the above with it's budget price tag of $69.99, and the GK50 Elite provides a value that's hard to beat.
MSI provides a great value with the GK71 VIGOR as it's cheaper than competing mechanical keyboards of similar quality. I'm awarding this our Gold Award because this is the best mechanical keyboard I've tested in a long time, and that's not something I say lightly. Of all mechanical keyboards I have tested, this is tied with ROCCAT's 121 AIMO for my favorite mechanical keyboard.
