Rosewill Neon K51 and Neon M57 Review

Introduction Everyone has different priorities for their PC build: Power, silence, size, comfort, lighting, cheap as possible, etc. When you are on a budget, some part of your build is going to suffer. Great power; you sit on the floor. Huge monitor; graphics card tops out at 30 fps. Lots of RGB lighting; keyboard and mouse from the 90’s. This review is for the latter. If you’ve shopped for an RGB keyboard recently, your options are $150+ mechanical or $50 fixed color membrane. Good news! Rosewill built something bright, colorful and affordable. They’ve also built a mouse with RGB as well, though affordable RGB mice have stiffer competition. However, should you buy them? Let’s find out.

MSI GK-601 Backlit Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

We all know MSI produces some top of the line motherboards and GPUs on the market today. I personally own 2x MSI 660 TI Power Editions as well as an MSI Z77 M-Power motherboard. Today we will be looking at something new from MSI, the GK-601 Back-lit Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. This is also something new to me since I've never used a mechanical keyboard before. This should prove to be a lot of fun. The MSI GK-601 aesthetically matches the MSI M-Power series Z77, the newly released Z87 motherboards and their Lightning series GPUs. With its yellow highlights and yellow back-lit keys you're sure to have a winning combo. The GK-601 offers 128KB on board memory so there is no worry about losing the macros you have created. With five profiles and ten possible macros per profile we get a grand total of 50 dedicated macro keys. Having a braided cord on a keyboard was also a new experience for me, but I can say after seeing this, it's pure genius in my book. The MSI GK-601 comes with dedicated multimedia keys for controlling all your media needs; plus it also comes with dedicated keys for switching between all five profiles. The keyboard I'm using now has been the best keyboard I've ever owned so it's going to be hard to beat it. Let's see if MSI is up to the challenge. Before we get into this review here is a video and a word about MSI!
