The packaging for the MSI Vigor GK70 Gaming Keyboard is very eye-catching. With the MSI Dragon Shield and Logo in the upper left to the multiple colors from the keyboard to the large print VIGOR GK70 GAMING KEYBOARD, this is a hard product to miss. The same branding appears on the front side.
The back of the box provides us with more information for the Vigor GK70 Gaming Keyboard. This keyboard seems to have it all including full RGB Illumination, Mystic Light, and MSI’s Exclusive Mystic Light Software!
Our first look inside the box shows us a well packaged mini-keyboard. At first glance, it appears that something is missing. Why is it so tiny?
