MSI PE70 6QE Prestige iBuyPower Edition Notebook Review

 

business-class gaming. We take our second look at the PE70 to see how well the Prestige series is branching off from its gaming G series roots. Unfortunately, not much has changed.

lightweight and small for a 17.3-inch multimedia notebook, relatively low core temperatures under stress, comfortable touchpad and keyboard, USB Type-C Gen. 2 port, good speaker quality, easy serviceability

unable to maintain maximum CPU Turbo Boost, loud system noise; fans tend to pulsate, light-moderate backlight bleeding, relatively short battery life, few expandability options, dim display backlight, no NVMe upgrade, weak display lid

Like its smaller PE60 and PX60 siblings, the PE70 Prestige will need to offer more than just a quick paint job to separate itself from the already established GE62 and GE72 series. At its current state, the Prestige series feels unnecessary unless if...

Great Product for the Price, With Minor Software Issues

 

I'd give it a 3.5 but since I can't, I'll round it up to 4. It's a great value for the price, I'd recommend it if you want something portable and stylish, that's also good for medium-high settings gaming. Most issues can be solved with external...

Good looking screen Love the aluminum chassis backlit keyboard is nice I do like the precalibrated screen settings in the true tone software this laptop is silent, but if you need it there is a fan boost button to cool things down fast Speaker quality...

Many of the drivers came outdated, and I had to seek out the most recent one Bloatware, wasn't a ton compared to other laptops I suppose, mostly just a lot of utilities or antivirus' I'll never use/need Trackpad can be somewhat intermittent and...

Not impressed-Slow at OOB

 

The rest is good, however the cons are huge for me and a dealbreaker. As of now, i'm at the verge of taking it back. Too slow for my taste. Once this update is complete, i'll report back, hopefully it speeds up. i keep hearing others were satisfied...

-big screen (non glossy too) -tactile feedback it great on mine -no sharp edges! comfortable when typing -On paper, it has high end specs

-slow slow slow slow! when OOB i updated windows once (came out with Win10 by the way) while installing a Network program and Office. Restart. Booted up (about an avg time of a comp), however my start menu was not responding. Delayed response times....

Warrenty sticker

 

I just ordered this laptop and was concerned about the reviews stating that the warranty sticker on the bottom prevents hardware upgrades or switch outs without voiding your warranty. I will leave more reviews specifically about this laptop when I get...

Almost the perfect high performance laptop

 

If you intent to put Linux on this laptop, note that you must add "intel_idle.max_cstate=0" to the boot options. You may also need to put "nomodeset" to get around the Intel/NVIDIA combination, which currently confuses Linux. Improvements have been...

M.2 slot allows installation of NVMe SSDs such as the Samsung 950 Pro (which is BLAZING FAST!) MSI provides Windows 7 drivers for those who would rather die by firing squad than use Windows 10 Well built, I believe it could withstand some droppage...

Battery does not appear to be consumer replaceable Must void warranty to simply change RAM, 2.5" HDD, or insert something into the M.2 PCIe slot! There is a warranty sticker on one of the case screws. I want to love this laptop unconditionally, but I...

Lacking fit and finish

 

The power is great, but the dead pixel is very annoying and the spacebar issue is frustrating. For the money, I would think that the laptop should be more polished. The track pad also seems to stick, but I cannot tell if that's a hardware thing, or a...

Great power

Spacebar doesnt always register strikes, especially towards the outer edge. Very irritating. Mine arrived with a dead pixel. Return policy doesn't cover it.

Excellent

 

Comes formatted GUID, which means TrueCrypt/VeraCrypt won't do full disk encryption.

Great stats for the price. Love the quad core Skylake processor. Great at heat dissipation. Can handle most tasks with ease. Ample RAM with room for expansion. Large screen with great resolution and color accuracy. Sound is amazing as well.

Does not come with an SSD. You can't open it to install one without voiding your warranty. Battery life is absolutely abysmal. Some parts make clicking noises when you press forcefully, but this is more of unaesthetic issue; the components themselves...

Overall, great laptop for gaming!

 

Boots up very quick. Great graphics and sound. While gaming, the battery doesn't last long. So it needs to stay plugged in if you are playing. I love being able to toggle the fan off and on whenever it is needed. The fan is fairly quiet. I definitely...
