The Cherry red switches provide a fast response, making typing and gaming a more enjoyable experience. Enjoy the precision of multiple simultaneous key presses with the N-key rollover function. The Gaming/PC Mode key and Macro keys offer maximum convenience for your gaming life. Thanks to a 50-million-keystroke life, the MSI GK-601 is a solid, highly durable professional gaming keyboard.

  • newegg Cherry MX Mechanical Red Switch The Cherry Black Switch is treated as the favorite "gaming switch" by gamers. Now, Cherry Red Switch features all the benefits from Black Switch – such as high reliability – but with less actuated force. The GK-601 allows a much higher rate of presses due to the lesser force needed to actuate. The result is a feel that most perceive as "smoother" and "faster", making it especially popular among gaming enthusiasts.
  • newegg N-Keys Rollover under USB Connection In some gaming sessions, like FPS or ARPG games, you may need to press multiple keys at once. The GK-601 features advanced performance with N-Key Rollover and anti-ghosting technology through USB connection. You can have multiple keys pressed at the same time without any interruption.
  • newegg Gaming/PC Mode Key The Windows key might be useful in certain situations, but it's unwelcome when you're in a gaming session and may even cause you to lose the game. Just simply click the dragon key and a function key (+F12) to lock the Windows key, and click both buttons again to enable it.
  • newegg Macro Keys with MSI Gaming Keyboard Software Re-program all keys to activate the software functions, or trigger the sequences of moves by macro keys. You can save your favorite key combination and five profiles for different games. Switch your weapon like lightning with your exclusive Macro Keys!
  • newegg Multimedia Key In the gaming world, speed is the only truth. The Multimedia Key gives quick access to your media functions, so that you can tune the volume instantly. The GK-601 helps you focus on your fight.
  • newegg LED Backlit with Four Modes The GK-601 provides four different modes of backlit lighting with a breathing mode. Don’t be afraid of the dark anymore, because LED backlighting helps you target your enemy precisely in any situation.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat keyboard

Pros: Well built, back lit keys, red switches, doesn't flex, heavy, braided cable, inputs for head set and USB.

Made my head set sound even better.

Cons: Price is high, big (tall, wide and long) and uncomfortable for long period of use.

Other Thoughts: Overall I like the keyboard. I bought it because of the key layout and no frills.

Wasn't expecting my head set to sound better but it does... Feels like a new.

So far mechianical keys feel over rated to me. But they do last longer. They might even last longer then the LED's in the keyboard.

Now that I have this keyboard. I would say it's not worth the $110 I paid. I would pay $60-$70 for it. But it doesn't stop it form being a 5 egg product.

Sure the cons... But this board is new to me, I have to give it some time to get used to it.

I would say look around, see what you want and be willing to spend the cash. This board may not be for you. But it met all my requirments and is the reason I bought it. All I can tell you is that it's well made with a few flaws.

So, I leave the choice to you. Good hunting!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome keyboard but it's loud!

Pros: First impressions of the keyboard: Definitely louder than a membrane based keyboard (highly recommend avoiding a mechanical keyboard purchase for the work). The LEDs are nice and bright, much better than my old Logitech G15. They keys are a bit more condensed than my G15- but definitely give the “full-sized” experience. The keyboard is also rather heavy, which I see as a good thing because you know it’s not going anywhere during long typing sessions.

Cons: The only con I can think of is that it's quite louder than a rubber-membrane based keyboard, but that's a well known fact for mechanical keyboards in general.

Other Thoughts: It definitely requires less energy to type than a membrane keyboard, I can easily see myself typing 2x more without getting tired than if I were using a traditional keyboard and I type at 110WPM.
If this is a home purchase, and you won’t be using your keyboard near anyone, then this is a terrific purchase! Definitely worth the money. I also recommend checking out some videos that go over the different types of mechanical switches used for these types of keyboards. It will give you a rough idea of how loud each type of switch keyboard is (I believe the blue-switch is the loudest, and the black switch is the quietest).
