MSI GK-601 Cherry Red mechanical keyboard ReviewPosted on 2014-02-04 23:06:50 by Thomas De Maesschalck
It seems ironic really that despite all the modern technological developments surrounding the 21st century desktop gaming PC, it’s the mechanical switch, a design that has been around far longer than most, that is hailed as the pinnacle of keyboard input mediums. Still, there is at least some debate on which is the best for what. Red and Black Cherry switches are the two most commonly compared when gaming is involved, but which to choose? MSI in the case of the new GK-601 keyboard has gone with Cherry Red, the lighter of the two types. Theoretically it should be quicker to type on and quicker to issue commands to your troops or grizzled space marine, but will it suffer from being too light to the touch?
