MSI GL62M 7RD-077 Notebook Review

 

Entry-level Gaming Laptop. MSI's entry-level model into the gaming world costs about 1050 Euros (~$1117). You will get a well-equipped 15.6-inch notebook for this price. Its main weaknesses are the display, the battery runtimes and the automatic fan...

matte display ; Full HD resolution ; free M.2 slot ; does not get hot ; high system performance

dark, low-contrast display with narrow viewing angles ; fan control when running idle ; poor battery runtimes ; no USB 3.1 Gen2 ; instabile lid ; only 2 GB VRAM

Very quick and powerful

 

I've had this for a week now and I've had no problems installing and running some large software including games. It starts up within a few seconds and has some interesting gaming features.

Great laptop but could really do with an SSD

 

Had this laptop a couple of weeks now, great build quality and solid performance for a budget gaming laptop but boot times are painfully slow and wish I'd sprung the little bit more for the one with the SSD.

Great for gaming but don't buy if you want a long battery life
