MSI GX660R review

 

Not only a great gaming rig, but one of the first to offer a decent dedicated speaker system and a number of innovative features

Aggressive performance ; New look design ; Dynaudio speakers ; TDE power ; Cooler Booster technology

Portability ; New look won't appeal to all ; Keyboard ; A noisy laptop to use ; Wish the lighting was more customisable

MSI GX660R Laptop Review

 

Laptops have have had a very hard life as a product. In the early days they were very slow when compared to desktops and hideously expensive. Gradually as time has moved on they've split into two very distinct types.

Review: MSI GX660

 

For such an eyesore, MSI really packed a lot of punch into this gaming powerhouse.

Quite affordable for a gaming notebook — it’s just too bad the performance isn’t top-notch, too. Dual USB 3.0 ports. Light and long-lived, considering the category

So ugly you’ll keep it in a paper bag. Weak keyboard, with boneheaded numeric keypad layout

MSI GX660 - Get More Than You Expect

 

Gaming notebooks are rarely preferred over full-fledged desktop PCs. The primary reason being the cost. It's possible to build a powerful desktop for the same price as an average gaming notebook. Gaming notebooks are large in size and heavy, so you...

At a price of Rs. 59,999 this notebook is an absolute steal. If you’ve been following gaming notebooks, you definitely know that this is probably the cheapest out there. The MSI GT663R costs a whopping Rs. 1,50,000 and for that matter even the ASUS...

Review Update: MSI GX660R Gaming Notebook

 

Gaming for the Masses. Not long ago, we reviewed the pre-production model of the MSI GX660R. Now that the GX660R is on the market, MSI sent us another model, this time it's the same one that's lining the shelves of stores and available for you to buy....

Powerful Performance ; Good Speakers ; Variety of Ports ; USB 3.0 & eSATA ; The Large Keyboard ; Full-HD Display

High Level of System Noise ; Heavy Weight ; Short Battery Life

The huge difference between the keyboard in the pre-production model and the current one

Review MSI GX660R Gaming Notebook

 

Powerful Gamer. MSI is offering the new GX660R, a powerful gaming notebook with a swanky design. The hardware in place here will get the heart of any gamer to pound with excitement. Whether the MSI GX660R doesn't just look good on paper but actually...

Powerful Performance, Good Sound System, Good Variety of Ports, USB 3.0, eSATA

Loud Noise Produced under Heavy Use, Heavy Weight, Short Battery Life, Flimsy Keyboard

MSI GX660R

 

While we'd be more comfortable with the Asus G73J, if you're a gamer who wants to squeeze the most value for your dollar, you may find your goal in the GX660R.

Phenomenal spec for the price ; Better than usual audio ; Good expansion options

Construction is a little cheap, especially the keyboard ; Audio weirdly attenuates system sounds ; MSI's software still needs polish

Although we can't shake the feeling that MSI has made things a little too cheaply, particularly the keyboard, it has managed to cram power usually reserved for 17-inch laptops into one that's 15 inches. It also adds in a hell of a lot of ports that...

MSI GX660R-646UK

 

Amazing sound by far the best of any laptop. The graphics are really good too. The extra features are really useful, such as the ability to increase the fan speed with the touch-screen on the top of the keyboard.
