Review Update MSI GT60 WSPH-7216257BW Workstation

 

Work(station) zone! MSI makes a foray into the realm of professio

Very good display; Very good keyboard; Decent port selection and distribution; Good CAD performance; Very good overall performance; Sturdy chassis

Visual appearance not very business-like; Business features are lacking; Fan is always on; Large and heavy; Small touchpad

Depending on usage scenario and power requirements, all currently available workstations: HP EliteBook 8470w, 8570w, 8770w, Lenovo ThinkPad W530, Fujitsu Celsius H720, H920, Dell Precision M4700, M6700, and various Clevo models like the Bullman...

Review Update MSI GT60 0NG-294US Notebook

 

Cost-efficient workstation. MSI turns its 15.6-inch gamer from ye

Excellent workmanship; Powerful CPU + GPU performance; Backlit keyboard with multiple colors; Improved 1080p matte display; Easy maintenance

Must void warranty sticker in order to access common components such as RAM, CPU, GPU, and HDD; Loud idling fan noise; Display does not cover blue-magenta region of sRGB spectrum; Touch-sensitive keys still hit-or-miss

We are flabbergasted that end-users must break the warranty seal in order to tinker with the HDD, RAM, heatsink, MXM graphics card, WLAN card, and the motherboard in general. Buyers who don't want to risk warranty may want to pre-configure to their...

Review MSI GT60-i789W7H Notebook

 

Edged and crooked. With the GT60, MSI throws a 15,6-inch notebook

well workmanship; up-to-date interface; illuminated keyboard; matte full-hd-display; powerful CPU + GPU; acceptable heat emissions

massive case; severely limited maintenance possibilities; noisy under load

The severe throttling of the graphics card while using the integrated battery - resulting in a clock lower than the one of the integrated GPU.

MSI GT60 2OD Review

 

The Xotic PC variant of the MSI GT60 offers cutting edge specs and premium performance at a premium price. Is this a good value for gamers?

Desktop-like Performance ; Comfortable Keyboard ; Portable Design

Expensive ; Loud Fan ; Single Touchpad Button Bar

In terms of the performance the MSI GT60 is sublime. The fourth-generation i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, GTX 780M GPU, and 128GB SSD ensure lighting fast performance and response. The notebook is capable of running any game currently on the market, and...

MSI GT60 Gaming laptop review

 

Gaming laptops and ultrabooks are the latest when it comes to laptop technology these days. Ultrabooks are for people wanting a light portable laptop while gaming laptops are for gamers and people that want a powerhouse. We recieved a sample of MSI's...

FAST ; Full HD ; Dual SSD ; Comfortable ; Decent battery time for the hardware

Heavy ; Price (1500$ @ Newegg)

The biggest con with this laptop is that it cost about 1500$ which is way more than people can afford these days, for that type of money you can get a decent Apple laptop that is thinner and lighter than this one although not with the same hardware. If...

Consumer review by: Cameron S. (newegg.com)

Wouldn't recommend problem after problem.

 

As of right now I am going to be emailing MSI support and hopefully they can do something to help fix this as I am highly disappointed right now. As of right now I would not recommend this product to anyone.

It ran good for the first couple months while I had it and loved it.

It ran fine for about a month or two until I started to get blue screens, though I didn't think much of it. After the first month of owning it the Hard Drive failed, which is really upsetting. 2 Days ago I was on my Laptop and I plugged in the charger...

Consumer review by: Walt (newegg.com)

incompatable programs!

 

I hoping there is an update, a better driver or program to fix the TSST Corp. BDDVD SN506BB SCSI CDROM\Device. software issue.

Great soundcard, It's heavy enough to remind you, you have it with you. Lots of memory, beautiful SteelSeries keyboard

The InterActual player is incompatible with the windows 7 operating system. so the Blu-ray drive won't play Blu-ray disks. The InterActual technologies website (recommended by microsoft to solve the problem) seems to be gone
